What Are Peptides?

Peptides are small proteins (less than 50 amino acids long) that typically act as highly specific signaling molecules in many crucial functions in our bodies, including hormonal production, cell signaling, and cell-to-cell communication.  They send out cellular pulses that allow for better function.  They change the receptibility of the cells.

Understanding Peptides

Peptides have more precise tissue-selecting effects and have more rapid response with less side-effects when compared to hormones.

They have high potency and specificity, but low toxicity.

They have a broad range of targets and can also improve the structure of the cells by improving the availability of cellular material.
