Ipamorelin is one of the most popular anti-aging peptides prescribed today. But you may be asking, “what is a peptide”? Peptides are short chains of connected amino acids and are used throughout your body to signal changes, including hormone production, and healing damaged tissue, in your cells. They also prompt immune cells to fight back against intruders like viruses, bacteria, and certain diseases. Peptide therapy triggers your pituitary gland to produce and release your own human growth hormone (HGH). Peptide therapy increases levels of human growth hormone in the body.
