There’s been a lot of buzz lately about peptides and what they can do for your skin, muscles, and even weight loss. Peptides are chains of amino acids, which are the “building blocks” of proteins. They’re produced naturally in your body and can also be found in food, supplements, and skincare products. The most common peptide is collagen, which can help firm and strengthen the skin. It’s often sold as a powder in grocery stores or health food stores but can also be purchased as a liquid, capsule, or gummy.
Some peptides can boost your energy levels by aiding in bodily processes like fat oxidation, which is the breakdown of fatty acids for fuel. They can also improve glucose uptake, which is your body’s primary energy source. There are several peptides that have been developed to promote weight loss, including GHRP-6, tesofensine, and AOD9604.
While peptide injections offer the most reliable results, they can be expensive and require the services of a professional. Peptide capsules provide an affordable, convenient option that allows you to reap the benefits of peptide therapy without the cost or risk of injections. They’re formulated to deliver peptides directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system and delivering them faster and more effectively than oral supplements. The peptides are self-assembling and can retain up to 95% of the radionuclide 225Ac for up to 7 days. They’re also made from a 95% plant-based formulation and the jar, cap, and carton are all fully recyclable.
