What are Peptides and Their Uses?
Peptides are something you may have heard about recently. There’s a lot of buzz about peptides and what they can do for you.
First, let’s look at peptides from a scientific standpoint. Peptides are short chains of amino acids (somewhere from two to fifty) that are linked by chemical bonds, also known as peptide bonds. Your body makes peptides. What do peptides do for your body? They can do a variety of important things, depending on their classes.
This isn’t science class, however, and we do not need to get too deep into all of that. What you are probably wondering is what good peptides are in your everyday life.
Recent studies have found that certain types of peptides may have benefits for your skin, your muscles, and potentially your weight.
Peptides may be sold as supplements which can help with a large range of things including building muscle, boosting fat loss, and aiding in muscle recovery. In fact, here at RWA Center in Beverly Hills, we have many such peptides for sale. Our peptides are carefully selected and proven. They have all been demonstrated as safe in scientific testing and they all naturally occur within the human body.
The peptide AOD 9604 offers regenerative properties that benefit bones and joints. BPC 157 promotes wound healing, especially in the digestive tract. PT-141 and Selank are peptides that work in the brain. Semax helps improve attention and memory. We also offer a Semax and Selank 50:50 combo that combines the benefits of both.
Rapamycin is a peptide that is used in the prevention of transplant rejection. It can also help with anti-aging. Semaglutide reduces insulin secretion and is also known to reduce body weight through lowered food intake and reduced appetite. Melanotan II provides a protective mechanism against UV rays.
NAD+ is a key coenzyme that helps with multiple metabolic functions, while Pentosan Polysulfate is a peptide used for relief from osteoarthritis. Kisspeptin influences testosterone.
PNC 27 has been called the “anti-cancer peptide” as it has the ability to target and damage the membranes of cancer cells. MK-677, or Ibutamoren, has been shown to increase the secretion of growth hormone. Met-Enkephalin is a peptide that acts as a neurotransmitter.
CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin is a combination of peptides that act like a human growth hormone stimulator. DSIP can help with pain management and substance withdrawal. iRGD is a peptide that can make tumors more vulnerable to chemotherapy and other treatments and Cerebrolysin is a very small peptide that can promote the health of neurons in the brain and protect them from damage.
So, as you can see, peptides come in many classes and offer a wide variety of benefits and you can inquire about all these peptides at the RWA Center in Beverly Hills.
