5 Reasons to Consider Peptide Therapy
You’ve probably heard of peptides or peptide therapy, but are you aware of all the benefits it can have for your health? We list five reasons you should consider peptide therapy here.

Peptides have been gaining more and more popularity due to all the reasons it can benefit your health. From reducing the appearance of aging to increasing libido, there aren’t many things peptides can’t help with. 

Our team at Atlas Health Institute in Las Vegas, Nevada, offers peptide therapy in order to help address your health concerns using more natural methods. Let’s learn more about why you should consider this treatment method.

What are peptides?

Both peptides and proteins are made up of strings of amino acids; however, peptides are short strings of amino acids – about 2-50 – while proteins are made up of many, many more. Because peptides are so much shorter, they’re much easier for your body to absorb more quickly. 

Man-made peptides are made very similarly to what your body is able to produce and can be used for many different health purposes.

What can peptide therapy be used for?

Peptide therapy uses peptides in different forms like injections, topical creams, nasal sprays, and oral tablets in order to help you achieve your health goals. Here are five reasons to consider peptide therapy:

  1. Low muscle mass. Certain peptides can help build muscle mass and boost muscle growth and repair.
  2. Inflammatory diseases. Some peptides can help to reduce any inflammation throughout your body
  3. Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is caused by your bones weakening, so peptides can increase your bone mass which, in turn, will increase their strength.
  4. Injury healing. Peptide therapy can encourage new collagen growth which can help heal any open wounds you may have.
  5. Preventing skin cancer. When you use peptides, it can increase your melanin supply, which can protect you from developing skin cancer. 

Peptide therapy can also help with the lack of energy you may be experiencing from chronic fatigue syndrome, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, or fibromyalgia.
