Peptide Therapy Q&A

What are peptides?

Peptides are short chains of amino acids that serve as the building blocks of protein (long chains of amino acids). There are many types of peptides that contain different strings of amino acids. These peptides perform different functions.

Your body makes many of its own peptides and uses them to create new cells and direct body functions. You need peptides for muscle growth, hormone production, and weight management.

However, peptide production varies from person to person and may change as you get older. Changes in peptide levels affect physical and emotional well-being.

MyJourneyMD is a concierge medicine practice that provides progressive, goal-driven medicine. Dr. Williams uses peptide therapy to improve overall health and wellness for her patients.
