What are Peptides?
Peptides are short chains of amino acids, linked together to provide information to instruct the body to turn on various cellular processes. Certain amino acids are liable for the production of certain hormones and proteins that help our body to function at its finest. Peptides play a major role in how your body responds to diet and exercise. If the body isn’t producing enough peptides or essential amino acids, it will not perform at an optimal level.
Peptides occur naturally in the body and are present in every living cell. Like proteins, peptides are composed of amino acids and are created when two or more amino acids are joined together. There are 20 different amino acids in the human body — mixing different combinations is what creates the various peptides and proteins in the body. All peptides will have some effect on the cells of the body. Different types of peptides influence different types of cells.
The basic distinguishing factors are size and structure. Peptides are smaller than proteins. Traditionally, peptides are defined as molecules that consist of between 2 and 50 amino acids, whereas proteins are made up of 50 or more amino acids. In addition, peptides tend to be less well defined in structure than proteins, which can adopt complex conformations known as secondary, tertiary, and quaternary structures. Functional distinctions may also be made between peptides and proteins.
Peptides are not new in medicine, in fact, one of the peptides that has been used in medicine since the 1920’s is insulin! Ah, yes. Now you are hopefully understanding the relationship between peptides and your body! Insulin was the first peptide that came to market. That, was in 1921 and today, Insulin is a peptide that is not only familiar but used by many. Insulin is a peptide and its therapy provides a far less invasive alternative to medicines and procedures we have become all too familiar and complacent with. Insulin, for the medical industry, was a game changer. Oxytocin, gonadotropin-releasing hormone, vasopressin—those are also- all other original peptides with a abundance of data supporting the impact peptides have on our bodies.
The continuing research, discovery and patient outcomes is solidifying peptides and the impact they have in the body, more specifically, how and where they may signal a neurotransmitter, an enzyme or a ligand, or even a toll-like receptor to do something.
Our bodies recognize peptides so now, with certain bonds associated with peptide bonding, we can keep those peptides’ half lives longer in the bloodstream to do what we want them to do. And in fact, we can do things where we can conjugate these peptides. We can add other type of bonds where we can cross a blood-brain barrier, where we can penetrate the cell.
Additionally, since the body is already accustomed to these peptides, they are synthesized, naturally causing less strain. Consider how your body processes naturally occurring peptides, like insulin and endorphins. Peptide therapy is not introducing the body to anything foreign, which is what makes this type of therapy so scientifically sound.
One of the most relevant and applicable therapies in Integrative Medicine today, is the cutting-edge, rapidly expanding, Peptide Therapeutics market. We believe that Peptide therapy represents the future of Integrative Medicine, for those striving to optimize overall health, due to the fact that peptides are highly specific (i.e. they only do what you want them to do) while also being well-tolerated and safe.
Although peptide therapy is fairly new, as of 2015, there were over 60 US FDA-approved peptide medications, 140 peptide drugs being evaluated in clinical trials and 500 in pre-clinical development. This is a science society has been waiting a long time for.
A New Look at Optimizing Health and Wellness
Since peptides vary in structure and number, effects vary as well. Peptide therapy has been used to treat age-related conditions, osteoporosis, obesity, inflammatory disease and even neuropathy issues.
These proteins are responsible for the way your body functions. Your weight loss, your sexual competence, and even your digestion processes are partially controlled by these proteins. Peptide therapy helps the body mimic the functions of naturally occurring peptides to emulate certain abilities on targeted areas.

Why You Shouldn’t Buy Peptides Online
Although peptides are available for sale online, neither the purity nor the potency of such products can be ensured. In short, peptide hormones—sold as dietary supplements or in any other form—are not safe for any use other than as prescribed under the supervision of a qualified healthcare provider.
Beware of online sources and dispensing from non-medical professionals as these products are likely fraudulent and potentially dangerous. Along the same lines, be sure to work with a medical team that understands how peptides work, how to prescribe them and supervise your results. All programs should include blood tests as well, to determine your baseline results, medically supervise your progress and results.
