What are Peptides?

Peptides are short chains of amino acids which are actually the building blocks of proteins. Peptides can help the body recover from injury or illness faster, lose weight more efficiently, improve sexual function, decrease inflammation and pain and improve results in the gym.

But Peptides are so much more.

Medical Science already knows of more than 7,000 naturally occurring peptides that have crucial roles in human physiology and performance. They work as hormones, neurotransmitters and growth factors and they serve an amazing variety of maintenance and restorative bodily functions.

Peptides cause a cell-signaling response that can have regulatory and rejuvenating actions on every-day physiology and neuro-endocrine-immune function. Peptides as clinical tools are considered highly selective and efficacious, while also being relatively safe and well tolerated. Did you know that the first peptide discovered was Insulin, way back in the 1920’s?

Peptide therapies for both “on and off label” use, offer exciting therapeutic options for so many medical and health conditions.

Some of these include:

  • Increasing human growth hormone levels
  • Weight management and appetite control
  • Blood glucose and insulin regulation
  • Reduced body fat – increased lipolysis
  • Cardiovascular support – improved lipids, blood pressure, vascular function
  • Improved energy, stamina and decreased fatigue
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Improved sexual desire (libido)
  • Regulation of other hormones, i.e sex, thyroid, blood sugar, stress
  • Improved memory and concentration
  • Improved workouts, recovery
  • Improve injury recovery
  • Improved bone mineralization and density
  • Improved immune responses
  • Improved inflammatory responses
  • Gut health
  • Pain control
