(The gut healing and inflammation peptide)

What Are Peptides?

The world of health, wellness, and anti-aging treatments is constantly changing. A few years ago, only die-hard health buffs or natural medicine practitioners were aware of peptides and their benefits. Now, the word peptides is commonly used. Even though it’s becoming more mainstream, some of us still just nod and smile politely when it’s used because we don’t really know what they are. To fully understand peptides, we have to back up a step to amino acids, because peptides are comprised of short chains of amino acids.


…And that Begs The Question

What are amino acids? Simply put, amino acids are tiny particles used to make proteins. Proteins are necessary for the human body to function correctly and are involved in autonomic processes like:

  • Digestion
  • Hormone regulation
  • Cell regeneration
  • Proper immune function

Where Do Peptides Fit in?

As mentioned above, peptides are formed by short chains of amino acids. When functioning correctly, these peptides (or small groups of amino acids) bond together to form proteins, which are essential for our bodies to function at all, let alone to function optimally.

Some peptides with which you may be familiar are:

  • Collagen
  • Keratin
  • Elastin

These peptides are beneficial to skin and hair and often used in skin and hair care products.

Peptide therapy can also be used to benefit a variety of other conditions. HEBE Aesthetics and Vitality, a medical wellness boutique serving Atlanta, GA and the surrounding areas, provides peptide therapies enhancing several areas of wellness. Peptides aid in healing and wellness in

  • Anti-aging
  • Improvement in sleep and mood
  • Weight loss
  • Increased energy level
  • Improvement in muscle injuries
  • Improving mental clarity and cognitive function

One peptide, BPC-157, is especially effective in supporting anti-inflammatory properties throughout the body.

What IS BPC-157?

BPC-157 is a synthetic peptide consisting of 15 amino acids and is created from gastric juices found in the human digestive system. Initially, it was used to prevent or heal stomach ulcers or as treatment for other gastrointestinal disorders. BPC-157 has been found beneficial in promoting healing in a myriad of areas.
