What is Peptide Therapy?

Peptide therapy harnesses normal peptides and their functions in the body to produce therapeutic effects. The most common use of this therapy is for conditions relating to aging and hormone disorders. This can include osteoporosis, weight gain, and loss of muscle mass. This type of therapy provides a more body-friendly alternative than traditional pharmaceutical treatments.

Because peptides are already synthesized and processed in your body, using P.T. drastically reduces the strain of the utilization of these compounds. In comparison, because pharmaceutical or surgical treatments aren’t already naturally in your body and are harder to process. Because peptides are natural, you’re introducing something your body knows how to make and to break down. We naturally make peptides in our bodies every day! The use of peptides for therapeutic effects has been shown to not have many negative side effects because your body can easily process these compounds. 

Most peptides used in therapy come from natural sources of plants and animal proteins, such as eggs, soy, and hemp seeds. Bioactive peptides like collagen and creatine are used to treat a variety of aging and hormone conditions. 

The most common form of administration for P.T. is an injection, but pills and creams can also be used in case of injection sensitivity. With injections the peptides bypass the digestive system and go directly into the bloodstream. The injection is the most efficient and quickest way to benefit from peptide therapy.

What is a “Peptide”?

A peptide, simply put, is a short chain of amino acids. Peptides are the building blocks of the larger proteins in your body. Because peptides are smaller than normal proteins, they are more easily absorbed by the body.
