As we age, the natural production of hormones and other substances within our bodies decreases. We may find the first signs in the crow’s feet around our eyes. Or the lowered levels or energy. Or even needing to be more careful about what we eat. Fortunately, with the increasing understanding of science and our bodies. We are now better equipped than ever before to slow signs of aging. Peptide therapy is one of the new technologies we can harness, to empower our own bodies to thrive. Peptide therapy helps support your body's overall health and anti-aging goals naturally. In this post, we will discuss exactly what is peptide therapy.
What are peptides?
Peptides are a compound composed of amino acids that naturally occur in our body. The body uses peptides as messengers to transfer information between cells. They act as a signal to dictate whether a certain cell function should be turned on or off. There is a large variety of peptides and each influences a particular type of cell. For this reason, you can use a targeted peptide therapy to help switch on some of these cells.
What is peptide therapy?
Peptide Therapy is any therapy that uses peptides in treatments. Since peptide therapy encourages your own cells to function, there are very few negative effects of this therapy. As a result, peptide therapy is an increasingly popular treatment. For now, it is most comparable to hormone therapy, however, has more targeted uses. Currently, peptide therapy is used in beauty and medical treatments. Learn about more here.
What is the role of peptides in skincare?
Peptides are growing popular in the skincare industry and market. This is because peptides are in topical products. Since peptides control many fundamental processes in the body, they can be used to boost skin appearance. Additional peptides in your system can improve the availability of collagen and melanin. These two substances are key in keeping the skin healthy and supple. Collagen is something we lose as we age, while with a peptide infused product you can kickstart the natural production. Collagen maintains suppleness and elasticity of the skin, and its loss is what causes crow's feet, fine lines, and deep wrinkles. Melanin on the other hand supports skin health and protects it from harmful UV radiation. Check out some of our favourite topical peptides here.
