One of the ways he does this is through peptides. For Ben Greenfield, peptides are a major part of reaching his health goals. 

What Are Peptides?

Peptide therapy is still a fairly new concept to some people in the general population, but let’s take a trip back to high school biology class and discuss what peptides are on a basic level. Peptides are biological molecules that are naturally occurring in the body. They contain two or more amino acids connected by peptide bonds. Peptides are responsible for a variety of fundamental processes in the body, including communicating with our cells and signaling them on what to do, such as repairing tissue, producing hormones, or promoting healing.  

Are Peptides a New Type of Therapy?

While for the average person, “peptide therapy” might be a new phrase, peptides have been used therapeutically in medicine for more than a century. You are probably familiar with these medicine: insulin and penicillin With technological advancements, the therapeutic potency and half-life of peptides has been enhanced, allowing it to be used in other ways beneficial to our health.
