If you have not heard of peptides, you should! Welcome to a fresh, new approach to regenerative medicine! The human body makes at least 7,000 peptides. About 70 of those are available for prescription. Peptides are small proteins that are used for communication by the body. The first peptide used in medicine was insulin. Most peptides are a sub-q (into the fat) injection just like insulin.
Because peptide therapy is growing so fast, questionable pharmacies are producing peptides and putting them for sale on the internet. Quality matters, especially with something you are injecting into your body! Dr. Harrison is a member of the International Peptide Society and is working on her certification in peptide therapy. She will only use pharmacies that have been vetted by the Peptide Society for quality and sterility. Peptides are used for many purposes, but I will go over the most prescribed, but this is not a complete list.
