How does a peptide work? Why do you need peptides?

Because from the concept of protein, every cell in the body and all the important components have proteins involved. Protein accounts for 16%~20% of the weight of the human body. There are many kinds of protein in the human body, with different properties and functions, but all of them are composed of 20 kinds of Amino acid in different proportions, and they are constantly metabolized and renewed in the body.

These 20 amino acids in the human body can be freely combined into 2,020 peptides, which is a very large number. According to the basic view that biological structure determines function, the action principle of each active peptide is very complex. Such as antibacterial anti-inflammatory peptide, immune regulatory peptide in thymosin.

Antibacterial anti-inflammatory peptide: antibacterial anti-inflammatory peptide (C-L)→ positive charge → action of bacteria cell membrane → in the pathogen (such as Escherichia coli) cell membrane drilling → intracellular material leakage → bacteria death, that is, kill bacteria; At the same time, it can neutralize endotoxin → reduce inflammation caused by LPS.

Thymosin among immunomodulatory peptides can enhance the immune function by inducing the development and maturation of T lymphocyte subsets, enhancing the phagocytosis ability of macrophages and increasing the expression level of interleukin. Calf thymosin, as we often call it, mainly acts on the T-lymphocyte system to enhance the cellular immune function of the body and enhance the resistance to disease.

Il-6 is a pleiotropic factor, which can regulate the growth and differentiation of a variety of cells, regulate immune response, acute phase response and hematopoietic function, and play an important role in the body's anti-infection immune response.

LTA can enhance immune function by binding TLR4/MD2 complex → activation of NF-кB signaling pathway → phagocytosis activity of ↑T lymphocytes and macrophages and immune factors (such as TNF-α, IL-6, IL-1β, etc.).

Different people's physiological state is not the same, will lead to the effect of taking peptide is not the same, like eating the same meal some people eat more fat, some people do not eat fat.

In terms of age, the effect of the elderly is usually better than the young; From the point of health, sick people eat peptide effect. A healthy person. In terms of fatigue, fatigued people do better than others; People who had surgery did better with peptides than people who didn't have surgery...

Because peptides have high nutritional value, easy to absorb, reduce the burden of digestive tract, promote wound healing and anti-fatigue characteristics, so it is the same as the right medicine, when people are in the physiological state, they need peptides with different functions to complement.

With the development of society, modern people are faced with many problems related to the reduction of peptides. For example, chemical fertilizers and pesticides take away the enzymes that degrade proteins in food and reduce the exogenous enzymes. Modern environment due to air pollution, water and soil pollution, the loss or inactivation of enzymes in the human body, the ability of human body to degrade proteins is weakened, digestion and degradation can not be carried out normally, the probability of obtaining peptides is reduced, so the human body is lack of peptides; Modern radiation causes the human immune function to be low, the ability to digest and degrade proteins is inhibited, the absorption system can not absorb proteins normally, and the probability of obtaining peptides is reduced.

Peptide deficiency has become a common problem due to the large amount of damage and loss of peptides in the human body. When the human body's ability to synthesize peptides is greatly weakened, the human body cannot replenish peptides in time, so it is necessary to take drugs to meet the needs of the human body.
