Peptides are natural molecules or proteins that the body produces to function efficiently. They are messenger signals that help in a variety of applications for the body. However, as the cell's efficiency declines, the peptides get affected due to oxidative stress, among other things. When this happens, there is a need to exogenously provide the body with signaling molecules to improve cellular efficiency and metabolic flexibility.

According to Dr. Donald Raden, peptides play a big role in correcting physiology. There are various types of peptides available, including those utilized for healing applications, beta oxidation, and weight loss. However, the most misunderstood aspect of peptides is their application.

Peptides are naturally produced proteins that the body has seen before. They are not synthetic chemicals produced in a lab that the body doesn't know what they are. Therefore, when people use them, they need to understand that it all goes back to cells, metabolic flexibility, and redox.

As Dr. Raden explains, it is essential to objectify what someone needs and utilizes by objective labs incorporating peptides based on laboratory analysis. This way, a physician can correct cellular metabolism to improve one's ability to utilize oxygen to make energy and correct disease states.

One of the most miraculous peptides is semaglutide, which is produced in the L-cell in the gut. It has been found to improve the efficiency of the cell by using autophagy, making it useful in treating Alzheimer's disease.

Another peptide that has been used for healing applications is BPC-157. It's a gastric juice that is produced in the cell, in the gut. The peptide helps in correcting the insults that are occurring biologically, leading to an improvement in metabolic flexibility.

In conclusion, peptides play a significant role in correcting physiology. They are natural molecules that the body produces to function efficiently. However, as the body's efficiency declines, the peptides get affected, leading to a need to exogenously provide the body with signaling molecules to improve cellular efficiency and metabolic flexibility. It is, therefore, essential to understand the role of peptides in correcting physiology and to use them objectively based on laboratory analysis.

In this episode, you'll discover:

  • Peptides are naturally produced molecules or proteins that play a variety of roles in the body, including as messenger signals that improve cellular efficiency and metabolic flexibility.
  • As we age or encounter certain triggers, our body's ability to produce peptides may be compromised, leading to imbalances in redox and reactive oxygenated species, among other issues.
  • Peptides can be used to correct imbalances in cellular metabolism and improve disease states. However, their use should be based on objective laboratory analysis and not simply internet recommendations, and they should be understood as part of a broader approach to improving overall health and wellness.

What are peptides for? Who is it for? Is it safe?

Don Raden

I think peptides have a very misunderstood application. For the body, what peptides are, they're natural produced molecules or peptides, proteins that the body produces naturally when the cell is working efficiently. It makes messenger signals called peptides, and those peptides have a variety of applications for a variety of different things.

When the cell is now working as efficiently as it could be, those peptides, for example, can get carbonated from oxidative stress. So you don't have active peptide as you get older a peptide gets released from the thymus gland called alpha thymosin, that involutes, and we don't have a healthy immune surveillance, but if we think about peptides, it all goes back to the cell.

So these peptides are ways of exogenously providing the body, the necessary signaling molecules to improve cellular efficiency, metabolic flexibility. There's a whole variety of peptides available, and they're used in a general statement to correct some of the insults that are occurring when the cell is not working as efficiently as it could be.

So for example, there is peptides that are utilized as healing applications such as BPC-157. It's a gastric juice. It's produced in the cell, in the gut, the most miraculous peptide that is obviously the number one pharmaceutical in the world is called semaglutide. What people don't quite understand that it comes from the L-cell in the gut, so that has a reflection of one's healthy gut microbiome and the colonocytes so when the gut microbiome is healthy, it releases butyrate, which will feed the fuel source to the colonocytes to make GLP-1. Which will then go to different cells and receptors throughout the body to promote autophagy. That's what GLP-1's do.

And the original research on semaglutide was not in weight loss diabetes was actually on Alzheimer's disease. So what does that mean? It improves the efficiency of the cell by using autophagy. There are peptides that are used for beta oxidation, and I like to use this in combination with Ketone IQ.

We have the ability to reverse the insults that are occurring biologically speaking, to try to improve metabolic flexibility.

So at the end of the day, what peptides really are is they're naturally produced molecules or pep proteins that the cell makes when it is a healthy cell. But as we get older, as we go through triggers, as we have infections, as we lead to immune surveillance weakening, as we end up with metal burdens, as we increase our carbohydrate consumption, We get imbalances in that redox leading to reactive oxygenated species.

And what I try to do is I try my best to objectify what someone needs and utilizes by objective labs incorporating peptides based off of laboratory analysis. So I think peptides play a big role in medicine and I think they play a big role in correcting physiology. And that's where peptides can be very helpful for the individual, given their naturally produced proteins that the body's already seen before.

They're not synthetic chemicals produced in a lab that the body doesn't know what they are. So I think that there's a lot of value, but I do think it's misunderstood in the internet world and people are using this and this and this, and they don't quite understand. It all goes back to cells. It all goes back to metabolic flexibility.

It all goes back to redox. And my job as a physician is to try to correct cellular metabolism once again to improve one's ability, to utilize oxygen to make energy. To keep the phenotype imbalance and try to correct disease states.
