What are Peptides?

Peptides are a chain of amino acids with peptides bonds. They are getting more common due to their effects they have on the body. They are commonly used to improve physical performance, build muscle and burn fats. Many peptides are being used for research purposes to help with faster recovery and healing.Peptides commonly come in a sealed glass vial, In a Lyophilized (freeze-dried) form. To be kept in the freezer.

How are Peptides Used?

Peptides for research purposes only are commonly used to:

Many peptides can do more than this, but these are the common reasons people use peptides, for research purposes.

Overview of Peptides:

A peptide is a chemical compound containing two or more molecules of amino acids.

The difference between proteins and peptides: A large chain of more than 50 amino acids will make a protein. A Smaller Chain of amino acids will form a peptide. This is where peptides get their nickname, Small Proteins. Proteins and peptides shape our cells and respond to signals received from anything outside of the cells. They also regulate functions of molecules.

Some peptides work as neurotransmitters while others act as a hormone. Peptides can regulate how our bodies respond to our diets and exercise. Many peptides are linked with growth hormones, they can assist in what is necessary to produce proper growth.

As we age our bodies will change. But our diets and stress level also change. Due to this our production of amino acids also goes down. Which can lead to problems such as diabetes.

If you’re not producing amino acids your body will lower your growth hormone production. Research has suggested taking peptides can incline amino acid production.

Human use of Peptides:

Peptides should only be used for research purposes only by trained and qualified professionals. There are many studies to show benefits and uses of peptides, as well as the side effects. At Peptides UK we do not encourage or approve the use of peptides for anything other than medical research.
