So, what is a peptide? A peptide is an amino acid structure with less than 50 molecules, and a protein has more than 50 (in general although there are exceptions). Peptides are used in your body to send signals, communicate and turn on/off biological processes. When we talk about peptide therapy, we are referring to using peptides that are either the same or very similar to our body’s naturally occurring peptides to achieve a result or improve body function.
As we age we tend to experience various changes in diet, stress levels, and lifestyle. This is due to decreased production of some essential amino acids and peptides. If you aren’t absorbing or making enough, your production of that hormone will be lowered. For example, as we age, levels of growth hormone decrease. Several amino acids are necessary to produce such hormones, and when your levels are low, it can affect many areas of your life, such as having trouble with:
- Weight Loss
- Sexual Health
- Immune System
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Decreased Muscle Mass
Those of us interested in health and fitness are looking to counteract the lower levels of these molecules and peptides to maximize our body’s ability to both recover and perform at an optimal level.
