Peptides are short chains of amino acids that act as signaling molecules and neurotransmitters. They are able to target specific receptors and influence your body’s own natural cell signaling pathways in order to optimize recovery, healing and performance.
These short chains of amino acids can have powerful effects on your body, allowing them to stimulate muscle growth, increase fat loss, boost exercise performance and recovery, regulate cellular repair, modulate inflammatory responses, and more. When used in combination, these peptides can offer you the best overall results when it comes to recovery.
There are many peptides that have been shown to help with recovery, but the three most popular in the fitness industry for this reason are BPC-157, TB 500 and CJC-1295. These peptides are known to work wonders in terms of helping with recovery from connective tissue injuries like tendonitis and other similar issues that can really wreak havoc on a person’s ability to recover from workouts, as well as their day-to-day activities, such as work and extra-curricular hobbies.
GHRP 2 is also a popular peptide that has been shown to help heal the body, as it is a synthetic agonist of ghrelin. This hormone is often referred to as the “hunger hormone” and can really boost appetite, in addition to triggering the release of more growth hormone. GHRP 2 has been shown to greatly help with cachexia, a condition that can lead to weakness and wasting away of the body in certain conditions.
