What is Peptide Therapy?

Peptide therapy is the use of peptides in treatment to direct cells to perform the function specific to the unique peptide. Since our bodies naturally produce many kinds of peptides, there are many different types of peptide therapy, all of which trigger a specific function within the body.

The most common use of this therapy is for conditions relating to aging and hormone disorders. This method of treatment can benefit those who have osteoporosis, weight gain, and loss of muscle mass. This type of therapy provides a more body-friendly alternative than traditional pharmaceutical medicines.

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! Also, the use of peptides for therapeutic effects has been shown not to have many adverse side effects because your body can quickly 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 treat a variety of aging and hormone conditions. 

The most common form of administration for P.T. is an injection, but pills and creams are great alternatives in case of injection sensitivity. With shots, 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”?

Peptides, similar to proteins, are short chains of amino acids that our body naturally produces. They act as signaling molecules within the body, instructing other cells and molecules on what functions to perform. Peptides are smaller than standard proteins, and your body absorbs them quickly.
