What Is Peptide Therapy?
Peptide therapy uses substances that boost your body’s natural ability to grow and repair cells. They act as messengers, sending signals to cells and tissues within the body to perform a variety of essential functions. Since peptides are important to so many different cellular functions, they can be customized to improve your health and well-being based upon your individualized needs, treating a variety of conditions from immunity, tissue injury to skin, hair and libido issues.
Human Growth Hormone or HGH is vital for many processes within the body. As we age, HGH levels gradually begin to decline, usually starting around age 30. This can lead to decreased energy, changes in skin and hair, declining fitness levels that start making you look and feel older. This is where peptides can help, by naturally increasing your HGH.
