5 Benefits of Peptide Therapy You Didn't Know About

 5 Benefits of Peptide Therapy You Didn't Know About

Peptides are short chains of amino acids that build proteins. Your body creates them, but you can also reap them from protein-rich foods and supplements. 

While peptides may seem a bit trendy, they’ve been used in medicines and supplements for about a century. As long as you get peptides from quality sources, peptide therapy — or the use of supplemental peptides — can invite a range of health benefits. 

Because peptide scams exist, we recommend seeking your therapy from trusted medical professionals. Our team at PSI Medical Group, led by  Dr. Robert Grafton in Wixom, Michigan, is pleased to be among them.

Here’s a look at several valuable benefits of peptide therapy, including preventive and treatment-related perks.

Reduced inflammation

Inflammation plays a major role in a range of common and painful conditions, and peptides help reduce it. 

One study showed that peptides effectively help treat inflammatory bowel disease, such as colitis. Peptide therapy may also help minimize joint inflammation from arthritis, which affects over 20% of adults in the United States. 

And when bowel or joint inflammation decreases, pain tends to as well.

Improved immune function

Peptides from food protein have been shown to reduce harmful free radical activity in the body, serving as powerful antioxidants. 

Because antioxidants help keep your immune system strong and functioning well, the therapy may help lower your risk for infections and disease. You may have an easier time healing from infections thanks to peptide therapy as well.

Boosted energy levels

Ask most anyone what they could use more of in their daily life, and energy is a likely answer. While peptides can’t replace essentials like sufficient sleep, peptide therapy may help you feel more energized. 

Scientists believe peptides do so by enhancing your stamina, endurance, and physical strength. Peptides may also help you feel more energized by reducing fatigue.

Blood clot prevention

Each year, about 900,000 Americans develop a deeply embedded blood clot in an arm or leg. For nearly a third of those people, another blood clot will form within 10 years. And some blood clots become deadly. 

Peptide therapy may help prevent your first or subsequent blood clots, potentially saving your life. The treatment may lower your risk for other blood clot complications, too, such as heart attack and stroke.

Lower blood pressure 

Nearly half of Americans have been diagnosed with high blood pressure (hypertension), and only one in four of those people have it well-controlled. 

Peptide therapy has been shown to significantly reduce high blood pressure, leading to a reduced risk of heart attack, stroke, and sudden cardiac death. With a doctor’s approval, peptide therapy may serve as a helpful alternative or supplemental treatment for ongoing blood pressure medication.
