Peptide Therapy is a medical science that has been around since the 1920s. Using specific small chains of amino acids, and when properly administered, peptides communicate with different body parts to enhance the body’s functions. Peptides have the potential benefits of slowing the aging process or building muscle.
Peptides can be used to improve the skin barrier, which is the body’s line of defense against bacteria, pollution, ultraviolet rays, and other environmental toxins. Your skin barrier can be damaged from over-exfoliation, exposure to cigarette smoke, and even poor sleep habits. Using peptides will help you build a stronger skin barrier.
Peptides penetrate the outer layer of the skin and become messengers for the other cells. They send messages to your skin cells, telling them to produce more collagen and elastin.
Peptides are also important to make up elastin fibers, which are also proteins. Elastin fibers bring back firmness to your skin, which is important in preventing wrinkles.
Peptides potentially increase the entire body’s functions by attaching to receptors on the cell surface. These attachments signal optimum messages for health improvement.
Over 7,000 naturally occurring peptides have been noted, and peptide therapy is becoming more popular with physicians because peptides are very specific in their actions and highly effective. Peptides are naturally occurring in the body, so they are well tolerated and safe. Peptides help with:
- Enhancing growth hormone production
- Balancing Hormones,
- Improving sexual disorders and erectile dysfunction
- Alzheimer’s Disease,
- Insomnia and stress disorders,
- Treating obesity,
- Osteoporosis treatments,
- Inflammatory disease treatment,
- Autoimmune disorder treatment,
- Tissue repair, including your joints, tendons, ligaments, and bones.
Using peptides is safe but needs to be prescribed correctly. Current medical studies state that peptides improve immune function and help with inflammatory and neurological responses. Many people find relief from diseases that were once thought untreatable, for example, autoimmune diseases.
