What is a Peptide?

By Michael 6 years ago

A peptide is a chain of amino acids linked to one another by amide (peptide) bonds. A peptide bond is the covalent chemical bond formed when the carboxyl group of one amino acid reacts with the amino group of another. The word peptide is derived from the greek word πεσσειν, which means "to digest." Peptides are an essential part of nature and there are thousands of them that occur naturally in the human body and in animals, but new synthetic peptides are being discovered daily, which show a promising future for health and drug development. The benefits of peptides on health have been demonstrated in numerous research studies related to neurological function, anti-aging, muscle growth, skin wrinkles, growth hormone deficiency and so forth.

What is Sermorelin?

By Michael 6 years ago

Sermorelin is the acetate salt of an amidated synthetic 29-amino acid peptide (GRF 1-29 NH 2 ) that corresponds to the amino-terminal segment of the naturally occurring human growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH or GRF) consisting of 44 amino acid residues.

It stimulates the pituitary gland to naturally produce increased amounts of human growth hormone. Sermorelin Acetate is a truncated analog of a growth hormone releasing factor (GRF 1-44) that is naturally produced by the brain to stimulate pituitary production of human growth hormone. The increased volume of human growth hormone (hGH) produced by the pituitary gland causes an increase in the production of Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) by the liver and results in the excellent benefits of this peptide.

TB-500 (Thymosin Beta-4) Peptide Research

By Michael 6 years ago

TB-500 also known as Thymosin Beta 4 is a naturally occurring peptide. It is found in high concentrations in blood platelets, wound fluid and other tissues in the body. TB-500 is not a growth factor; rather, it is a major actin regulating peptide. TB-500 (Thymosin Beta 4) has been found to play an important role in protection, regeneration and remodeling of injured or damaged tissues. The gene for TB-500 (Thymosin Beta 4) has also been found to be one of the first to be upregulated after a wound occurs.
