Peptides have taken center stage as a miraculous, naturally occurring chain of amino acids that could perform a variety of beneficial tasks inside the human body.
As with anything on center stage, there are plenty of people attempting to ride the wave.
A surge in popularity and discovery is undoubtedly followed by those looking to take advantage with offerings of “cheap” peptides.
The old adage applies when discussing peptides and their quality: “If a deal looks too good to be true…”
Andrew Wax is a Certified Peptide Specialist at the nation’s first medically managed peptide therapy program. He encourages those interested in the power of peptides to first ask, “What am I putting in my body?”
Peptides and loads of misinformation about them are available via many platforms and locations.
It is vital that anyone seeking a quality peptide therapy inquire with a reputable, accredited source. The Boulder Longevity Institute can be that source.
Years ago, a peptide named PNC-27 was observed with the potential to destroy cancer cells without harming normal, healthy cells.
Researchers believe the peptide can select the cancerous cells, attach to them, and essentially rip them apart.
A discovery of this nature creates a ripple effect across the world, regardless of where the treatment is approved.
People began jumping at the opportunity to procure such a powerful cure.
PNC-27 began popping up from various vendors, while never being approved by the FDA as a cancer treatment.
Then, a warning emerged in 2017 from the FDA that multiple tests had shown sources selling PNC-27 were delivering contaminated products.
When contaminated, what could potentially be a way to cure cancer would be turned into a toxic and deadly substance.
There are processes in place to ensure peptides are appropriately synthesized and clear of potential toxins.
As products become less expensive or “cheap”, you can assume that many of these processes are removed to offer a low-cost peptide.
A “cheap” peptide may contain heavy metals due to a poor or non-existent removal process. This will lead to negative impacts on your health which outweigh any benefit gained from a peptide therapy.
Peptide therapies are complex.
Even your general physician is likely to have an extremely limited understanding of how these treatments work.
Using peptides to modify your biochemical function takes precision and expertise
If a peptide is created without the proper guidelines, the peptide becomes entirely unpredictable.
Finding a high-quality, well-managed source is the key to unlocking the power of peptide therapies.
Buying quality peptides off the shelf or on some discount site is difficult. Not to mention it guarantees limited results and could cause you far more harm than you would expect.
If peptide therapy sounds like something you would like to try, reach out to a professional.
A medically managed peptide therapy plan will dramatically increase the likelihood of positive outcomes. Be sure that your peptide source provides the powerful knowledge that you are using a safe product.
Take the guesswork out and consult an expert, like the Boulder Longevity Institute.
