What is Peptide Therapy?
Peptides are small chains of amino acids that are linked together to provide information to the body. This information tells the body to switch on certain cellular processes and they play a significant role in how our bodies operate. Peptides can be very particular in their functions, meaning they only do what we want them to do, which is why peptide therapy has been gaining so much popularity in recent years.
Advances in the study of peptides have revealed several ways that peptide treatment can help the body. They can be used to improve overall health as well as prevent aging. They can also be used very specifically for improvements in brain function, muscle mass, sleep, hormone production, tissue repair, sexual function, and weight loss, to name a few. Certain peptides are also utilized for specific conditions such as Lyme disease, autoimmune disorders, or patients undergoing chemotherapy. Your provider can help determine the appropriate peptide therapy that is right for each patient to help achieve a desired outcome.
Peptide therapy is very safe because they are simply impersonating the functions of naturally occurring peptides in the body. With peptide therapy we are not introducing anything unfamiliar into the body, which is what makes it so reliable and safe. Currently there are many FDA approved peptides with more on the way in the clinical trial phase.
