For those who may not be familiar with peptides, they are found in every cell and tissue in the human body and play a key role in skin health, muscle health, weight management, and much more. In essence, peptides are essential when it comes to achieving homeostasis and overall good health.
Of course, we can only reap the benefits of peptides when we have a healthy and adequate supply of them in our body. Fortunately, peptides are found in many of the products we already use like skin creams and many of the foods we consume like almonds, eggs, fish, and meat. Peptides are also commonly used in dietary supplements like BCAAs and whey protein.
Peptides perform a role very similar to that of hormones in that they function as messengers, carrying information from one tissue to another. In this article, we will be taking a closer look at peptide-based therapy and how it can be used to lose weight, treat hair loss, resolve pain, and even combat cancer.
