Peptides are short chains of amino acids that play vital roles in various biological processes. Peptides are essential building blocks for proteins and are crucial for maintaining the body’s structure and function. At Align Body & Wellness in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Shannon Kibble, APRN, CNP, will discuss the numerous benefits peptides provide to the body, including improved performance, decrease inflammation, improve gut health, and increase muscle growth. They also play a role in promoting wound healing, reducing inflammation, and supporting healthy skin and hair.

What are peptides?

Chains of amino acids comprise peptides that occur naturally throughout your body and support many of its functions. Collagen and other important proteins in your body consist of polypeptide chains.

Peptide therapy is also an effective treatment for growth hormone insufficiency, which happens with aging and can cause muscle loss, weight gain, and fatigue. Normally, when you exercise, your body releases growth hormones to help you build muscle. Peptides can stimulate the pituitary gland to release more growth hormones, making peptides a great option for treatment.

If you want to maximize your results, you may also benefit from IV therapy or vitamin injections, which can help boost your overall nutritional status.
