Peptide Therapy Q & A
What are peptides?
Peptides are strings of amino acids, which are found in higher numbers in various proteins. Because peptides have fewer amino acids, your body can break them down more easily.
Peptides act as signaling molecules, essentially telling other molecules how to perform. They accomplish this by attaching to the surface receptors of cells and molecules. You have thousands of peptides in your body, and they support numerous different functions.
Your body naturally produces certain peptides, but that production declines as you age. You can also get peptides from plant and animal sources, including meat, eggs, milk, soy, oats, and beans. However, the best way to obtain a substantial volume of peptides is through supplementation.
The most common means of peptide supplementation is through subcutaneous injections. This delivery method places peptides directly into your bloodstream, where they can go to work immediately.
How are peptides beneficial to health and wellness?
