What is Peptide Therapy?

Peptide therapy is the targeted use of amino acids, called “peptides,” to produce a specific reaction in the body. Different types of peptides produce different types of results so there is a wide range of benefits. Peptides are typically administered with injections, but they also can be administered via a cream, a nasal spray, or orally.

We serve patients in Nashville, Franklin, and Brentwood, Tennessee and patients also come from all over the United States specifically to work with Dr. Kellum.

Why Should I Get Peptide Therapy?

Obviously, if you have one of the conditions mentioned above, you might want to consider getting peptide therapy. It can also be used in conjunction with other treatments you may be getting for a particular condition. Generally speaking, it’s a good way to improve your overall wellness.

How Do Peptides Work?

A peptide can be thought of as a small protein made up of short chains of amino acids that are linked together. These peptides typically act as “signaling molecules.” That is, they bind to the surface of a cell and the peptide will stimulate how that cell responds to certain stimuli.

Is Peptide Therapy Safe?

The use of specific peptides in treatment has an extraordinarily high level of safety and success. For this reason, peptide therapy has gained great popularity in recent years. As of July 2017, a total of 239 therapeutic proteins and peptides had been approved for clinical use by US-FDA , however: there are over 7000 known peptides that occur naturally in the body. Peptide therapy could have some small side effects, but nothing life altering.
