Peptide Therapy in Chicago | Il
Peptides are “signaling molecules” composed of certain amino acid combinations that direct your body to perform a certain action. There are thousands of peptides that naturally occur in your body but many are lost over the aging process due to natural degeneration. Peptides created in specialized laboratories are currently being used today by physicians to treat a variety of conditions.
Why are peptides becoming so popular?
Peptides are only composed of amino acids which are basically the components that make up proteins. There are no synthetic components within them. Peptides are also used to enhance your own body’s natural function, not alter it like many other medications. Finally, because peptides enhance your body’s natural function, there are little if any side effects.
What are peptides being used for?
Peptides are being used for a variety of conditions ranging from diabetes, to low blood pressure, to gynecologic applications. With the increasing recognition of the value of peptides, new uses are being discovered for weight loss, increased healing, improved sexual function, treatment for various neurodegenerative conditions, just to name a few.
Do peptides suppress or damage your body?
No! It does the opposite, it makes your body work more efficiently, heal faster, and “wake up” physiologic functions that aren’t accessible to you now. Peptides won’t cause any suppression of your systems when stopped nor will it cause any sort of damage.
