Anti-Aging Benefited by Peptides
Age is just a number. If we’re lucky enough, we get to celebrate big birthdays that mark decades and those that mark less noteworthy years. As those years pass, it means that we have lived to ages at which we remember our parents or even our grandparents, but that doesn’t mean we want to show or feel those years’ stress and strain.
Fortunately, we have access to many anti-aging essences and compounds that the generations before us didn’t.
Some of the most effective of them are created from, or are synthetic versions of, peptides, which occur naturally in our bodies.
What are Peptides?
Peptides are short chains of amino acids. To be concise, amino acids are tiny molecules used to make proteins, which are necessary for the human body to survive. Peptides are short chains of amino acids that serve many purposes within the body. They may:
- Increase muscle mass
- Help heal bone or tendon injuries
- Increase libido
- Improve gastrointestinal problems, including healing of ulcers
- Help cognition and memory
- Reduce inflammation
Peptides are also very valuable as elements of an effective anti-aging regimen. The peptide GHK-Cu is especially valuable in creating a youthful appearance.
What is GHK-Cu?
GHK-Cu is a peptide that binds small particles of copper, which occurs naturally in our bodies. It is found in human plasma, urine, and saliva. In 1973 researchers discovered that GHK-Cu helped regenerate aging liver cells. It was also discovered that GHK-Cu levels decline in the body as we age, and that introducing it to the body had a regenerative outcome.
Since then, GHK-Cu has proven to be a widely researched and popularly used component of anti-aging skin care products. It has numerous benefits for anti-aging, including:
- Anti-inflammatory properties
- Increasing collagen production and regeneration of new cells
- Increasing elasticity in skin
- Reduction of sunspots or other hyperpigmented areas
- Reducing wrinkles
- Improving the appearance of aging skin
GHK-Cu has been used beneficially for many people throughout the United States because it possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties as well as reducing the damage caused by free radicals.
