Introduction

I receive questions about peptides nearly every day, such as:

  • What exactly are peptides?
  • How do they work in the body?
  • What are the best sources?
  • How do you administer them?
  • How can peptides be stacked for optimal effects?
  • Are they safe?
  • Are they legal?

I understand why these questions persist. Peptide therapy is relatively new to the general population, with few experts discussing it, although that is changing. Additionally, peptides aren’t FDA approved or patentable, so despite their daily use by some of the smartest functional medicine physicians, most mainstream health websites avoid the topic. Consequently, people must seek alternative sources for information on peptides.

My aim is to educate and be a reliable source of information on the fascinating field of peptide therapy. Not only have I personally experienced their benefits, but I also believe peptides have the potential to revolutionize human performance, athletic recovery, anti-aging, immune treatments, skin and hair restoration, and more.


What Are Peptides?

Peptides are naturally occurring biological molecules composed of two or more amino acids linked by peptide bonds. Like amino acids and proteins, peptides play essential roles in the body, serving as signaling molecules that communicate with cells to instruct them on various functions, such as tissue repair, hormone production, or the release of anti-inflammatory compounds.

Structurally, peptides relate to amino acids and proteins as follows:

  • Amino acids are individual molecules.
  • Peptides are generally short chains of 2-50 amino acids.
  • Proteins are long chains of 50+ amino acids.

Despite their relatively recent spotlight, peptides have been used therapeutically in medicine for over a century. Life-saving medicines like morphine, penicillin, and insulin are peptides, and there are many peptide-based vaccines.

The Rise of Peptides

Two significant factors have recently propelled peptides into the health scene:

  1. Technological advancements: Enhancements in peptide circulatory half-lives and therapeutic potency, such as attaching peptides to larger molecules for better absorption or manipulating the amino acid chain for stability in the bloodstream.
  2. Commercialization: Peptides have become more accessible, especially online. However, this ease of access has raised concerns about the safety and purity of peptides available for purchase, a topic I will discuss further below.

The Health Benefits of Peptides

Why would someone go through the trouble and expense of sourcing and using peptides? Simply put, the results can be remarkable. Personally, I’ve used BPC-157 to alleviate gut inflammation and heal various injuries, such as golfer’s elbow, a torn hamstring and a painful rotator cuff following a motorcycle accident. LL-37 helped my gut recover from giardia, and Semax provided a nootropic boost without affecting sleep or causing anxiety.

When administered correctly, peptides replenish natural levels that decline with age, offering benefits such as:

  • Improved sleep
  • Enhanced brain health
  • Boosted immune function
  • Increased lean muscle growth
  • Anti-aging and longevity effects
  • Hair loss prevention and regrowth
  • Improved insulin sensitivity and metabolic health
  • Support for injury healing and recovery

Peptides can have such broad effects because they act as circulating hormones, neurotransmitters, and local regulators, playing a fundamental role in human development, reproduction, physiology, and behaviour. Their high specificity and ability to penetrate cell membranes make them effective and low in toxicity due to their short half-lives, which prevent accumulation in organs like the liver or kidneys.


Where to Get Peptides

Peptides are not patentable, which means pharmaceutical companies can’t profit from them, so they won’t be marketed through conventional healthcare channels. Though safe and effective, peptides are not FDA-approved and are largely unregulated. They cannot be legally sold or advertised for human consumption, a reason why you’ll see them labeled as such on websites.

Finding a reputable, high-quality source for peptides can be tricky. Initially, my experience was less than ideal, but through research and consultations with other experts, I learned to discern quality sources and after seeing the astonishing results, I have decided to synthesize them myself, these miraculous compounds needs and must be shared with the entire world. Notably, the head of United Kingdom’s anti-doping organization stated that 80% of peptides advertised online are adulterated or fake.

For safety and efficacy, the best option is to obtain peptides through a legitimate peptide provider who can develop an appropriate protocol for your needs. You can visit www.panaceabiochem.com for more information.


How to Use Peptides: Reconstitution, Storage, & Administration

There are various methods to administer peptides, depending on the peptide and desired benefits. Some can be applied topically, taken orally, used intranasally, or injected.

For example:

  • Topical transdermal application: Best for skin benefits or local injury repair (e.g., Panacea Sticker™). Panacea patches deliver a controlled, continuous release of peptides through the skin, ensuring consistent absorption for maximum efficacy. These non-invasive patches are designed for targeted delivery. Panacea Sticker™: A cutting-edge transdermal delivery system that provides a steady release of peptides, ensuring sustained benefits. It is available for 2 months from the manufacture date, and this can be extended to 4 months if kept in the refrigerator at +3°C.
  • Oral administration: Convenient for gut health benefits (e.g., Panacea Pill™), though few peptides are stable enough for this route. Our peptide capsules are designed for maximum efficacy, offering a potent and convenient way to supplement your routine. Please note that any peptide capsules have a shelf life of 2 months then they start decaying. Panacea Pill™: Our delayed delivery capsules offer a straightforward oral administration, tailored for maximum absorption and effectiveness. These capsules protect the peptide from strong stomach acids, ensuring it is released only in a safe environment. They have a shelf life of 3 months at room temperature, or up to 5 months when refrigerated at +3°C
  • Intranasal application: Effective for targeting the brain (e.g., Panacea Nostril™). Our peptide nasal spray is designed for quick and effective absorption, providing fast-acting benefits. Due to its formulation, it has a shorter life span, make sure you will use it in 4 weeks time. Panacea Nostril™: Provides a convenient and non-invasive delivery method, perfect for those who prefer an alternative to injections. It is our least lasting product with an availability of 5 weeks from the manufacture date and 2 months if kept in the refrigerator at +3°C.
  • Injection: The most effective and common method, albeit more complex (e.g., Panacea EZnject™). Panacea EZnject™: Designed for precision and ease of use, this lyophilized peptide product includes an extra layer of protection with nitrogen gas, making it our most long-lasting product. It is available for 4 months from manufacture in unprimed condition, and for 6 months if kept in the refrigerator at +3°C. After priming, they have 16 days to use and must be kept in the refrigerator at +3°C. Panacea EZnject™ comes in a user-friendly kit containing the EZnject™ injector pen and the dual chamber cartridge,10 x 19G 6mm disposable needles and 11 alcohol swabs to ease the experimental voyage.

Injection Instructions

Subcutaneous Injection:

  1. Choose an injection site (thighs, abdomen, upper arm, or gluteus medius).
  2. Pinch the skin and insert the needle at a 45-90 degree angle.
  3. Inject the peptide, wait five seconds, and then remove the needle.

Intramuscular Injection:

  1. Choose a muscle-rich site (shoulder, thigh, or hip).
  2. Pinch the skin and insert the needle at a 90-degree angle.
  3. Inject the peptide and remove the needle carefully after waiting for five seconds.

Post-Injection Tips

For both injection types, massaging the area for 30-60 seconds post-injection helps absorption. Dispose of needles responsibly in a sharps disposal bin.

Peptides and Flavonols

Combining flavonols and peptides has been explored in several studies, highlighting potential benefits and mechanisms of interaction. For example, some studies have looked into the binding behaviors of flavonols with peptides and proteins, suggesting that these interactions can influence biological activities such as antioxidant properties and enzyme inhibition ​(this study) and (this study)​.

Flavonols like quercetin, kaempferol, and myricetin are known for their strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which could theoretically complement the bioactive functions of peptides. For instance, peptides have been shown to possess various therapeutic properties, including antimicrobial and immune-modulating effects, which might be enhanced when combined with flavonols (this study).

While direct studies on combining flavonols with peptides are limited, the existing research suggests promising avenues for synergistic effects. Flavonols can modulate enzyme activities and reduce oxidative stress, potentially enhancing the stability and efficacy of therapeutic peptides​.


Conclusion

Peptides represent an exciting frontier in biohacking, offering a range of benefits that can significantly enhance various aspects of health and performance. As the science and understanding of peptide therapy continue to evolve, more people will likely discover their potential and integrate them into their wellness routines. Remember, while peptides can be powerful tools, they should be used responsibly and with proper guidance to ensure safety and efficacy.
