Peptides & Peptide Therapy

Peptides are short sequence of amino acids, 3-40 amino acids in length. Basically the are very small proteins.  Biologically, peptides are signaling molecules, allowing communication between cells, and turning specific pathways on or off.  They are powerful super-chargers of your biochemical construction crew.  Peptides direct a wide range of biologic processes.

Peptide therapy is an exciting cutting-edge treatment that utilizes specific peptides to signal optimal messages for improved health.  Under appropriate management, the benefits can be immense.  Most often the administration is with a very small needle into the fat pad of the abdomen (subcutaneous injection).  This is necessary, as being a protein, taking an oral capsule would lead to digestion/degradation of the peptide.

Who Can Benefit

The body is familiar with the peptides, as it uses them in its natural biological processes.  Therefore the effects are specific, usually without untoward side-effects, and the break down pathways are already in place, making metabolism easy.  Our peptides are bio-identical, having the exact structure of peptides synthesized by the body.  Shape determines function in biochemistry, so bio-identical is a big key to their effectiveness.
