What Are Peptides?
Your body makes peptides. They’re strings of amino acids, which are the “building blocks” of proteins. But a peptide doesn’t have as many amino acids as a protein does.
Lab-made peptides can mimic some of those found in your body. Some of them are used in medications for conditions ranging from diabetes to multiple sclerosis.
Studies have also found that certain types may have benefits for your skin, muscles, and maybe your weight. So companies are putting them into skin products and dietary supplements you can buy over the counter. (See More Here)
What Do They Do?
There are lots of different peptides, each of which has a different role in your body. We need more research into what synthetic peptides can do and how they do it. But some of the benefits certain peptides are thought to offer include:
Improving the skin barrier. Antimicrobial peptides can help your body fight bacteria and promote wound healing.
Muscle growth. Creatine and collagen peptides help boost muscle growth or muscle repair. (Certain types of synthetic peptides thought to be linked to muscle growth, called growth hormone releasing peptides, may be illegal and unsafe.)
Weight loss. Scientists are looking at whether some peptides could help you lose weight. (See More Here)
