How Peptides Can Positively Improve Your Life

How Peptides Can Positively Improve Your Life

You might remember learning about peptides in high school biology. While it may have bored you then, the use of peptides in your naturopathic prevention and healing protocols ought to get you excited now. Peptide therapy is a cutting-edge approach to treating disease, slowing aging, building muscle, burning fat, healing from injury, producing hormones, and more.

If you think peptides sound important, you’re right. Peptides are small chain amino acids that bond together to form proteins such as creatine and collagen. You’ve likely heard of creatine if you’re into bodybuilding and collagen if you’re into anti-aging skin remedies. But peptides are actually found in every cell and tissue of the human body and perform many essential functions. Research suggests peptides can:

  • Destroy microbes
  • Lower inflammation
  • Prevent blood clots
  • Perform as antioxidants
  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Strengthen immunity

Additionally, peptides are being used to treat inflammatory-related and chronic illnesses, including arthritis, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular syndrome, neurological diseases, and skin disorders.

Many of these illnesses and their associated symptoms are considered the unavoidable result of aging. People tend to simply accept and never seek treatment for symptoms that lower their quality of life such as:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Increased body fat
  • Less bone density and greater risk of fracture
  • Lower libido and sexual function
  • Muscle decline
  • Sensitivity to heat and cold
  • Weakened stamina, strength, and ability to exercise

But peptide treatments are gaining in popularity as a way to prevent and reverse these symptoms, promote overall health and wellness, and increase quality of life.  Therapeutic peptides are synthetically derived or made from food and can imitate naturally-occurring peptides, and cause little strain on the body and produce very few side effects. They can also be specifically tailored to achieve desired results such as increase output of human growth hormone. Here’s a list of some of the most popular peptides used in treatment:

Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide (VIP) — Neuroprotective, Reduces Inflammation
Thymosin alpha 1 — Immune Function
Thymosin beta 4 – Inflammation and Tissue Repair
BPC 157 — GI Healing and Tissue Repair
Cerebrolysin — Cognitive Function
PT 141(Bremelanotide) — Libido and Weight Loss
Delta sleep inducing peptide (DSIP) — Sleep, Chronic Pain, Oxidative Stress
GHK-Cu — Immune System Homeostasis
Melanotan 2 — Tanning, Libido, Weight Loss

The future of peptide therapy is very promising. While it’s not a cure for every health problem, it can help significantly with many chronic and age-related ailments. If you’re ready to optimize your health and wellbeing, consider peptide therapy.
