What is a Peptide?

By Michael 7 months 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 7 months 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.

What is BPC-157?

By Logan 7 months ago

BPC 157 is a partial form of the protein known as body protection compound (BPC). BPC is a natural component within the body and has been found, in experiments on animals, to promote healing. BPC is not just active in intestinal repair and healing, but appears to produce similar effects in a number of tissues. Scientific studies based on animal test subjects has shown that its healing actions are at least partially linked to growth hormone (GH).

Thymosin Beta 4 (TB-500) and the Brain

By Logan 8 months ago

Research has shown that when it comes to brain health, there are few drugs, supplements, or diets that make much difference. Unfortunately, the brain has remained a mystery to medical science and thus efforts to determine how to keep the brain healthy have been hindered. Science can tell us only that regular exercise and a relatively meat-free diet are associated with long-term brain health. There may, however, be some new evidence regarding thymosin beta 4 (also known as TB-4, or TB-500) and its impact on neural health.

Thymosin Beta 4

TB-500 (TB-4) is a naturally occurring peptide that is known to produce a vast array of healing and regenerative effects. It appears to promote everything from bone remodeling and growth after fracture to healing of heart muscle after a myocardial infarction (heart attack). Recent research in rats now suggests that TB-500 (TB-4) may improve neurological outcomes after stroke or brain damage.
