In recent years, the use of peptides in health care has gained great popularity. Peptide therapy is generally considered safe and can be used to produce very specific effects. Many peptides have been approved by the FDA allowing them to be utilized for medical trials and use.
What is Peptide Therapy?
● In layman terms peptides are chains of amino acids, which are small proteins comprised of short chains of amino acids that the body uses as hormones and signaling molecules for biological pathways. The body uses these proteins or peptides as signaling molecules facilitating the cell-to-cell communication and allowing the body to switch certain cell functions on or off. These can be responsible for your weight loss, digestion, sexual competence and much more. These properties can be harnessed and used to trigger specific therapeutic effects. Peptide therapy has been used to treat age-related conditions, osteoporosis, obesity, inflammatory disease and even neuropathy issues. Peptides can be administered orally, by injection or by cream.
Since most of these peptides are naturally occurring within the body, the body is not being introduced to anything foreign, therefore causing less strain on the body. We offer a variety of peptides, specific to individual needs, please consult with the doctor to see which peptides is right for you.
