Most people have only a vague familiarity with the term peptides. However, they play a huge role in the function of the human body. Thanks to recent advances in the study of how they affect the human body, people are finding relief from the horrible symptoms caused by many conditions. It is surprising the number of conditions that peptides are able to treat.
Peptides are not designed to replace hormone therapy. However, peptide therapy can work in conjunction with hormone therapy with the goal of addressing ailments that are often linked to aging. What are peptides exactly? A simple explanation is that they are short chains of amino acid monomers. These chains of amino acids are linked together by special bonds.
Amino acids are what proteins are built of. Amino acids are the base material for other organic molecules. Your body creates peptides when you eat protein. As your body breaks down the protein, peptides are created and are absorbed into your bloodstream. They play a vital role in the production of hormones and are key in cognitive functions, repairing tissues, healing after an injury, getting a good night’s sleep, losing weight, sexual function, and the function of your reproductive system.
This form of therapy is versatile. That is why care must be used in determining the right type of therapy to help an individual get the best outcome. But as you can see, peptides play an important role in every aspect of your health.
