What Are Peptides?
Peptides (from Greek language πεπτός, peptós “digested”; derived from πέσσειν, péssein “to digest”) are short chains of amino acid monomers linked by peptide (amide) bonds.
The covalent chemical bonds are formed when the carboxyl group of one amino acid reacts with the amino group of another. The shortest peptides are dipeptides. It consists of 2 amino acids joined by a single peptide bond, followed by tripeptides, tetrapeptides, etc. A polypeptide is a long, continuous, and unbranched peptide chain. Hence, peptides fall under the broad chemical classes of biological oligomers. Besides, it also includes polymers, alongside nucleic acids, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides, etc.
What Are Synthetic Peptides?
Protein peptides and Peptide therapeutics are responsible for a new advance in biotechnology. Peptides are highly effective amino acid molecules developed for targeted specificity and potency. Compared to large proteins, power peptides biodegrade into non-toxic or low toxicity metabolites. It is also with minimal potential for drug interactions and low immunogenicity. People manufacture lab peptides with expensive and complicated scientific processes.
Brief Introduction of FIVE Peptides.
ACE-031 is an activin type 2 receptor, which is a myostatin inhibitor. ACE-031 is a protein. It was designed to bind to myostatin before it can attach to its receptor and suppress muscle growth. Myostatin is a hormone produced by our bodies that signal muscles to stop growing and developing. Thus, by inhibiting or blocking myostatin, muscles would be able to grow bigger and stronger.
Adipotide is a completely different weight loss drug. It works by cutting off the blood supply to fat cells. Adipotide causes the blood vessels that supply the fat cells with blood to shrink and eventually leads to fat tissue death. The dead tissue is then reabsorbed and metabolized by the body. It also lowers the level of insulin resistance drastically. Insulin resistance is the main sign of metabolic disorders like diabetes.
BPC-157 is a peptide that is derived from human gastric juice. People is researching BPC-157 for its regenerative and healing effects. BPC stands for Body Protecting Compound. Our body produces it in our own gastric juices in very tiny amounts. It protects and heals stomach and gut. BPC-157 speeds up the healing of existing injuries and protects the body from new injuries. It is completely free of side effects. And research has shown that it can repair tendons, muscles, intestines, tooth, bones and more.
CJC-1295 DAC is a tetrasubstituted peptide. It is used to increase Growth Hormone production. It is in the class of Growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) analogs. GHRH is the name of naturally occurring hormone in the human body. And it is not commonly used because of its high price and extremely short half-life. CJC-1295 is the improved version of GHRH with addition of DAC – Drug Affinity Complex. CJC-1295 DAC provides stable blood levels after injections and half-life of approximately one week. Generally, CJC-1295 is not used alone. But it is used in conjunction with a peptide of the GHRP category, for instance GHRP-6, GHRP-2, Ipamorelin, Hexarelin.
DSIP is a neuropeptide. And it stands for Delta sleep-inducing peptide. It works by inducing spindle and delta EEG activity and by reducing motor activity. DSIP is used to improve sleep quality. It also lowers corticotropin levels and prevents its release. DSIP also helps the body to release more LH (Luteinizing Hormone). Additionally, it assists in Growth Hormone release and suppresses the production of Somatostatin. DSIP is also known to normalize the blood pressure. And it might slow down the cell damage by offering anti-oxidant benefits.
