Peptides are short chains of amino acids, which are molecules that makeup proteins. These molecules have the ability to bind selective cell membrane receptors leading to intracellular signaling and communication. These messenger molecules have crucial roles in human physiology affecting the function of hormones, neurotransmitters, and growth factors.
What conditions can peptide therapy benefit?
Peptide therapy can address immune dysregulation, inflammation, and oxidative stress that can often be the root cause of chronic illness. Peptide therapy has been shown to benefit individuals with neurodegeneration, post-concussion syndrome, autoimmune disorders, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, insulin resistance, and obesity.
Are Peptides Safe?
Peptides are naturally occurring molecules that are very well tolerated. Peptides are building blocks that promote repair and healing in the body. They have high specificity for selected binding sites making adverse reactions and side effects rare. It is important to know the source of the product, not all peptides are created equally. Peptides should be sourced from an accredited compounding pharmacy to ensure the product is pure, active, and effective.
