Understanding the Many Benefits of Peptide Therapy

Peptides are chains of amino acids that play essential roles in many areas of health and wellness. Low levels of specific peptides can interfere with normal body function and even contribute to rapid aging. Here’s how peptide therapy can help.

Your body is more complex than most of us even begin to realize. The processes required to maintain health and function are almost too numerous to count — and many of those processes depend on tiny structures called peptides.

Peptides are short chains of amino acids, important molecules essential for health and wellness. While we can get peptides from food, we may not get the amount we need for maximum benefits, especially as we age.

At beYOU bioidenticals, our team offers peptide therapy to supplement specific peptides with the end goal of helping you enjoy optimal health and wellness. In this post, learn what peptide therapy is and how it could benefit you.

Understanding peptides

Peptides are the building blocks of proteins composed of longer strings of amino acids. While proteins are also vital for health and wellness, because peptides are smaller, they may get more readily absorbed by your tissues, which means they’re also more available to your body.

Peptides are present in both animal and plant foods like: 

  • Beans
  • Eggs
  • Dairy
  • Soy
  • Oats
  • Wheat

Your body also makes many of the peptides that are involved in necessary functions. Not surprisingly, illnesses and other medical conditions can influence peptide production, leading to lower levels that can impact health.

Benefits of peptide therapy

Our team offers peptide therapy focused on peptides that stimulate the production of growth hormones produced by your pituitary gland. Depending on your goals, your peptide therapy benefits may include:

  • Improving your metabolism
  • Optimizing muscle mass and body composition
  • Enhancing healthy cell production
  • Ramping up natural energy
  • Decreasing signs and effects of aging
  • Increasing bone density
  • Decreasing body fat
  • Supporting weight management
  • Improving the overall quality of life

Peptide therapy offers other benefits. For instance, optimizing body composition and decreasing body fat could improve blood pressure, cholesterol, heart function, and mobility.

Like any therapy, our team evaluates your health and reviews goals to recommend the best treatment options for your needs.
