Peptides VS Human Growth Hormone
HGH or human growth hormone and peptides are two different things, although they are associated. Understanding the difference between the two and how they work together is important for anyone interested in hormone function. This is especially true when it comes to growth hormone, synthesized and released by the pituitary gland in the brain. Peptides are compounds of two or more of amino acids that are connected to one another. Peptides are defined as a substance that encourages or initiates another substance to be secreted or released, such as human growth hormone.
What Peptides Are
Peptides are created from proteins. Protein is required by every living cell in the body. Proteins are constructed of amino acids and amino acid chains. Peptides, depending on type, are effective in the construction of muscle tissue, in metabolism (fat burning), as well as endurance. At its most basic definition, a peptide is defined as a cluster of 50 or fewer amino acids.
Our bodies must have amino acids for adequate function as well as production of any and all of the peptides that the body needs. They perform number of functions in the body. Some can behave like a hormone while another may act like a neurotransmitter. They all have an impact on how our body responds to exertion, diet, and stress. A number of amino acids are required to create human growth hormone.
A peptide therefore, can instruct your body or the pituitary gland to release HGH. Even as we age and secretions decreases
