What Are Peptides?

Amino Acids are the building blocks of life. The order in which chains of Amino Acids are connected is directed by our DNA and RNA. Small chain amino acids are called Peptides.

At Performance Medical Clinic, we use both naturally occurring and synthetically produced peptides to regulate the way your body naturally produces hormones, maintains and promotes immune function, reproduction, muscle mass, weight loss, better sleep patterns, and many more functionalities.

Peptide therapy is the most cutting-edge therapy in hormone replacement and endocrine system enhancement. Peptides have been shown to safely and effectively improve and modulate specific parts of hormone production, immune function, cell division and renewal, libido and arousal, brain function and mood. The side effect is extremely low because of the natural peptide structure.
