Peptides Q & A
What are peptides?
Peptides are a natural substance produced by your body. They are chains of amino acids, which make up proteins. Peptides don’t have as many amino acids as a protein.
Peptides support good health and wellness. They can help you achieve healthier skin and hair, reduced joint and muscle pain, increased lean muscle mass, stronger sex drive, improved immunity, and much more.
How are peptides used in therapy?
When applied strategically, peptides can create healing reactions in your body. They fight inflammation or destroy fat cells, for example. Peptides are then helpful in enhancing recovery, minimizing pain, and losing weight.
What can peptides treat?
Amino acids are essential building blocks of just about every part of the body, from healthy skin to muscle mass. This makes peptide therapy versatile and effective in treating many aspects of your health.
Benefits of peptide therapy can include:
- Skin anti-aging
- Reduced joint pain from arthritis
- Reduced bone loss
- Faster wound healing
- Increased muscle mass
- Enhanced gut health
You often find peptides as an ingredient in skin products, like lotions or serums, to boost collagen production and deliver antioxidants.
What are the benefits of peptide therapy?
You don’t have to be suffering specific symptoms to benefit from peptide therapy. Peptides help your body operate at its peak. Peptides have very few side effects because they are naturally found in food and your body.
Peptide therapy is also customizable. The team at Southern Secrets Med Spa and Clinic put together a unique blend that addresses your needs and health goals.
