The body has the unique ability to restore itself to a state of well being and vitality. Sometimes it only needs some simple biochemical assistance with substances that already exist in the body. This is where peptides come into play.
So what is a peptide?
Peptides are short chain amino acid sequences. There are over 7,000 naturally occurring peptides in the human body. Peptides are signaling proteins. They bind to cell receptors and instruct the cells how to function. They control a vast number of cellular pathways such as:
- Secrete hormones
- Improve or manipulate brain neurotransmitters
- Instigate various immune responses
Peptides offer us a unique restorative alternative to many medications mitigating side effects because they mimic what the body is already capable of doing.
Why types of things are peptides indicated for?
- Muscle building
