Peptides are small building blocks of proteins, less than 50 amino acids in size, that naturally occur in our body and act as modulatory signaling molecules regulating a wide range of metabolic functions such as hormone release, gastrointestinal digestion, hunger, blood sugar control, bone health, sleep regulation, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, neurological, and immune system function.

As signaling molecules, peptides ensure proper chemical communication, action and function between the hypothalamus, anterior pituitary gland, liver, stomach, and other tissues in the body. They modulate appropriate inflammatory response, protect cellular efficiency and optimize mitochondrial function, maintain cellular metabolic flexibility, upregulate beta oxidation of fatty acids, monitor and influence timing of cellular senescence (anti-aging effect), promote collagen formation, muscle healing and regeneration, and so much more.

Peptide therapy, instead, restores physiologic endogenous release of GH and transcription of IGF-1, by mimicking the pulsing and amplitude of the Growth Hormone release with the intended optimal benefits mentioned above. In other words, peptide therapy acts directly on the pituitary gland stimulating its cells to produce and release Growth Hormone. This is just one example of how Peptide Therapy helps stimulate and promote natural, endogenous production and secretion of our peptides.
