What are peptides?

Peptides are short chains of amino acids, which are the building blocks of peptides and proteins. They can be found in animal or plant-sourced protein including meat, fish, dairy, eggs, whole grains, beans, and lentils. Lab-made peptides can be made by combining individual amino acids. Because they are a part of the process of producing hormones and DNA, they can help build muscle tissue. Peptides are often viewed as a more natural alternative to steroids. They can aid in fat loss, boost muscle mass, and help bodybuilders optimize their workouts. You can consume peptides orally, topically, or in injectable form.

How do peptides work for athletes and bodybuilders?

Certain peptides can help athletes and bodybuilders change their body compositions as quickly and efficiently as possible. Growth hormone secretagogues (GHS) are a group of peptides that can stimulate the production and release of human growth hormone (HGH). HGH can help enhance muscle growth and aids with body fat loss. Taking growth hormone secretagogues (GHS) is a popular alternative to taking human growth hormones (HGH) due to fewer side effects. The most well-known GHSs that athletes and bodybuilders use include:

Growth-hormone releasing hormones

Gherkin and compounds mimicking its actions

Growth-hormone releasing peptides
