Ever heard of short peptides? There has been so much talk about them and the remarkable benefits they bring to the medical field and beauty industry. So far, they are capable of reversing ageing, treating a wide range of diseases, reducing inflammation, fighting viruses, and killing microbes; all with few to no side effects at all. But that’s not all. Short peptides are powerful; they can improve your overall health, and even increase your life span. In this guide, you will learn about the power of short peptides, some short peptide-infused dietary supplements and how you can take advantage of them.

Read on.

Biopeptide Basics

A biopeptides is a biomolecular structure that consists of chains of 2–3 amino acids. Amino acids are the fundamental building block of living organisms, and they are the mastermind behind the functioning of various organs and systems in the body.

Proteins are like biopeptides. They are equally made up of chains of amino acids, and they play a critical role in the functioning, and health of organisms: from building bones, muscles, and cartilages, to repairing tissues and much more. This is why they are often used as drugs to treat certain diseases.

Biopeptides are proving to be more effective and efficient than proteins as therapeutic agents and it can be attributed to their miniature size. While proteins are made up of chains consisting of more than 50 amino acids, short biopeptide chains consist of only 2–4 amino acids. Their small size enables them to filter into the bloodstream faster and more efficiently when taken orally and to penetrate deeper into the skin to improve it when applied topically.

Several studies conducted on peptides have shown that they are safe and effective. They are known to pose far fewer side effects because they do not accumulate in the liver, kidney, and other organs, as some other drugs do. Instead, they are recycled by the body and function like the peptides produced naturally in the body. In a study conducted by professor Khavison, the participants showed remarkable improvements in health with few to no side effects. Most of them showed improvements in their brain health, cardiovascular health, and immune functions.

There are different types of biopeptides and each one performs a specialized function. Some target the muscles, and immune system, others work to improve skin health. Major pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries now infuse relevant ones into their products to make them safer, better tolerated, and super effective. If you decide to try out a peptide-infused product, be sure to determine the kind of peptide and other ingredients it contains so you know if you are allergic to any of them.

Read on to understand how these special biomolecules can help you to fight viruses and preserve youth. 

Fighting Viruses

Viruses and bacteria have posed a significant danger to the existence and well-being of humans. Throughout history, millions of individuals have died from getting infected by viruses, and bacteria. Although researchers have managed to come up with treatment options to fight them time and time again, their complex lifecycle and ability to learn, and adapt have made them a formidable force. Consequently, new medicines with higher safety profiles and efficacy need to be continuously developed to keep them at bay.

Biopeptides have shown to be very promising in fighting the infection, spread, and re-emergence of viral infection. Viruses are known to attack, weaken, and often kill their host through their lifecycle which involves 5 stages. Because they propagate only inside living cells, they first attach themselves to the host cell, enter into it, replicate, assemble, and then spread out to new cells where they wash, rinse, and repeat the process.

Several existing therapeutic agents available for fighting viruses work by targeting certain stages in the lifecycle of the virus, or the host cell receptors. Although they have proven effective in drastically reducing the death rate associated with viral infections, the ability of viruses to mutate incredibly fast has enabled them to develop resistance to them (the drugs).

Peptide-based agents contain proteinogenic and non-proteinogenic amino acids that can increase their antimicrobial and antiviral activities in the body over time, and ultimately make them safer and relatively more effective in the fight. 

More research needs to be done to improve upon existing knowledge and develop peptide-induced medicines that will be capable of completely eradicating viruses. However, there are currently dietary supplements such as Epitalon spray, that are capable of boosting the immune system and reducing the chances of infection in the first place.

Anti-ageing properties of short peptides

Earlier, we mentioned that short peptides are lightweight and small in size and that this characteristic makes them very effective and safe in providing health and wellness benefits. Although we mentioned that they are also relevant to the beauty industry, we failed to shed light on their anti-ageing properties.

The physical signs of ageing typically start to trickle in around the age of 25 because of two major events:

  1. the body starts producing about 1% less collagen year after year. The progressively lower collagen levels cause the skin to become thinner, paler, less plump and smooth. Collagen is a vital component of the skin that promotes youthfulness by keeping it hydrated, elastic, and firm;
  2. the channels through which the brain signals the release of nutrients to problematic areas of the skin become inefficient. This causes the parts to wrinkle and develop age spots.

Peptides work in skincare products because their small size allows them to penetrate deep into the skin to slow down collagen breakdown. They also notify the brain of areas of the skin that require attention. Consequently, when they are topically applied to a specific area, they trick the brain into believing that the area requires attention. This prompts the brain to release collagen and other essential proteins to rejuvenate the skin, irrespective of age.

Dietary supplements such as Epitide Oropeps, among some other products have proven to effectively delay the physical signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. They revitalize body organs, resupply the skin cells with the much-needed nutrients and ultimately bring about a youthful look. Be sure to consult your doctor before trying out any dietary supplement.

What are the benefits of Epitalon? 

Epitalon is a safe and effective dietary supplement that boosts weakened immunity, eliminates excessive daytime sleepiness, and improves hormonal disorders. It is made of a naturally occurring peptide called epithalamin, and it consists of 4 amino acids — lycine, alanine, aspartic acid, and glutamic acid. 

Epithalamin is an extract of the pineal gland. It was discovered by professor Khavison — a Russian scientist who has experimented and sorted out ways to reverse ageing with the compound for over 4 decades. Professor Khavision started with extracting epithalamin from the pineal glands of calves but soon discovered a way to synthesise and finetune it to provide the remarkable health benefits that it is known for today. He named the final product Epitalon. 

Epitalon offers a ton of benefits directly, and several others indirectly. Some of the common benefits you stand to gain from using it include:

#1. Increases Lifespan

Epitalon was seen to increase the lifespan of different animals such as female Swiss-derived SHR mice, fruit flies, and rates. In the study, the fruitflies which were administered the supplement during their larval stage showed to live 11% to 16% longer than those in the control group. The result was slightly different in the study carried out on the female Swiss-derived SHR mice. The mice saw a 12.3% increase in maximum lifespan after receiving Epitalon injections, but their average lifespan remained unaffected.

#2. Corrects circadian rhythms.

The circadian rhythm is a natural process that controls a series of mental, physical, and behavioural changes based on light (day) and darkness (night), following a 24-hour cycle. The changes affect or influence mood, alertness, the wake-sleep cycle, and overall health and well-being of the body. The circadian rhythm runs in the background preparing the body for expected changes in the body, and environment such as time to eat, time to sleep, and time to be active.

Epitalon improved the circadian rhythm over time and eventually restored it to normal in both monkeys and humans during a trial. It achieved this by regulating the levels of melatonin, cortisol, and other hormones in the participants. Although these, alongside several other studies produced positive outcomes, more studies need to be conducted on the drug to determine the full extent of its effects, and possible adverse effects.

#3. Possible Cancer Treatment

Several studies have been conducted on rats and mice suffering from mammary tumours in a bid to determine the safety and effectiveness of Epitalon in the treatment of cancer. So far, the results from a majority of them have been positive. Many of the rats showed an increase in lymph flow and a decrease in cancerous cell growth. The studies on mice equally showed a decrease in the growth of cancerous cells, as well as in the size of the tumours.

However, it is worth noting that no trials have been conducted on humans at the point of writing this article. As a result, the short- and long-term effects are unknown. Also, it is not known whether the results achieved in the animal trials will be the same in humans. Based on this knowledge, it is better to stick to traditional treatment methods.

#4. Prevents/ Improves Oxidative Stress

Oxidative stress is a common cause of several lifelong diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular and neurodegenerative stress. It often occurs when there is an imbalance between free radicals (damaging Oxygen-containing molecules that are missing electrons) and antioxidants. I.e, when the levels of free radicals exceed the level of antioxidants in the body.

The direct approach to improving or reversing the condition involves triggering an increase in antioxidant levels to rebalance the free radical-antioxidant mix. Epitalon and some other epithalamin-based drugs or supplements can act as antioxidants. Thus, you can curb or prevent the condition described by using such supplements as prescribed. Be sure to consult your doctor before taking any dietary supplement, drug, or herbs.

#5. Increases Enzyme Activity

Low levels of pancreatic enzymes are one of the common effects associated with ageing. If left untreated, it could cause malabsorption which could increase the risk of infections, uncontrollable weight gain, and low bone density which increases the risk of fracture. Several studies have shown the potential for epithalamin to increase enzyme activity and ultimately improve overall health.

Do you often experience uncontrollable weight loss or weight gain, frequent fatigue or bowel movements, and painful menstruation (women)? If yes, you may have a hormonal imbalance. And if that is the case, Epitalon spray may be able to help you restore normal bodily functions and improve your overall health. It can also help you prevent them from occurring in the first place by boosting your immune system and keeping you healthy.

The power of short peptides

Short peptides are a new form of drug that is being used to treat a variety of diseases. They are more potent than traditional drugs and have fewer side effects. The power of short peptides is in their ability to target specific cells and organs. This makes them more effective than traditional drugs which can be harmful to healthy cells as well as diseased ones.

Epitalon Spray contains a special peptide that offers a ton of health benefits. While it is not the key to the door of eternity, it can slow down the effects of ageing, promote an attractive and youthful look, and ultimately increase your quality of life. There are several other supplements based on ultra-short Khavison Peptides that also contribute to a long and healthy life. They are safe and harmless since they occur naturally in the body. Remember to consult your doctor before taking Epitalon or any other treatment.
