peptide therapy


There’s a lot of talk about peptides and what they may do for your skin’s complexion, muscle growth, the healing of wounds, and overall health. But do they live up to the hype they have been getting?

What Are Peptides?

Your body creates peptides. They are amino acid strings that serve as the “basic building block” of proteins. But, a peptide does not contain as many amino acids as a protein.

Because peptides are smaller and more easily broken down than proteins, they may be easier for the body to absorb. As a result, they can pass through the skin and intestines more efficiently, which lets them get into the bloodstream faster.

Research shows that specific peptides may help your skin, muscles, and weight. As a result, you can get them in over-the-counter skincare, food supplements, and more fast-acting prescribed forms.

Some Uses and Benefits of Peptide Therapy 

Reduce the rate of aging

Collagen is a protein found in the skin, hair, and nails. Collagen peptides are collagen proteins that break up so that they are more accessible for the body to absorb. So, taking collagen peptides may improve the health of your skin and stop the aging process.

Some research suggests that collagen peptide-containing dietary supplements can help alleviate skin wrinkles. Another study suggests that these vitamins may help improve the elasticity and moisture of the skin.

There are also peptides in topical anti-aging cosmetics. Marketers say peptides can reduce wrinkles, help the skin get firmer, and improve blood flow.

Enhance wound healing

Since collagen is essential to healthy skin, collagen peptides may help wounds heal faster.

Bioactive peptides can also lower inflammation and function as antioxidants, which can help the body heal itself.

Antimicrobial peptides are now being researched to promote wound healing. On the other hand, antimicrobial peptide levels that are too high or too low may cause skin diseases like psoriasis, rosacea, and eczema.

Increase your strength and muscle mass & lose weight.

Collagen peptide supplements, according to some studies on older adults, can improve muscle growth and strength. Participants in the research coupled supplement use with resistance training.

Bodybuilders want to change their body composition as rapidly and efficiently as possible. According to research, some peptides may aid them in achieving these objectives.

Growth hormone secretagogues (GHS) are a group of peptides that are popular with bodybuilders because they can make more human growth hormone (HGH) and make it come out more quickly.

HGH is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland. It can assist in boosting muscle growth and improving fat reduction.

Part of the way it does this is by getting the liver to make insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). IGF-1, in turn, stimulates muscle protein synthesis and growth. It also appears to increase body fat breakdown indirectly.

Peptides also send specific signals to the body to trigger the release of hormones that influence how the body uses energy. 

Peptide therapy can also help regulate appetite and metabolism. With a high metabolism rate, your body will burn more calories and fat, even at rest.

Peptide therapy is a safe and effective way to slow the aging process and get skin that looks young and healthy. Talk to us at Capitis Medical & Aesthetics if you have any concerns about this treatment.
