We all are aware of the basic science of our own bodies. We know that cells make up our organs. Different cells have different structures dictated by our DNA that allows those cells to understand what they fit together to become. What many of us don’t know, however, is that some of those cells become naturally occurring chemicals in our bodies that perform a multitude of functions. Some of those chemicals are called peptides. Modern science has learned to artificially replicate those peptides so well that they can be approved by the Food and Drug Administration as replacements for people whose bodies don’t produce the chemicals naturally for whatever reason.
One of these peptides is called Sermorelin. It’s a growth hormone. The purpose of Sermorelin in your body is tied to anti-aging and weight maintenance. Taking a supplement of artificially created Sermorelin can assist your body with slowing down the physical aging process. It also helps with weight loss, especially of those hard to lose deep fatty deposits, because it boosts your metabolism without affecting your blood sugar, blood insulin levels or your thyroid. You have to be able to give yourself a shot to get it, though, as it’s not available in pill form. You also need to be consistent with the timing of the twice daily shots. While it sounds like a miracle in a needle, you need to have a prescription for it. How much does something like Sermorelin cost? If your insurance provider doesn’t cover is, be prepared to spend at least $170 for as long as you need it.
Oxytocin is another peptide with some seriously positive effects on your body. Called the “love” or “cuddle” hormone, oxytocin is released by your pituitary gland when you socially bond or are physically affectionate with others. Some scientists have discovered that the “other” you bond with doesn’t necessarily have to be a person. Playing with your dog, having your cat or rabbit sit on your lap or hugging your horse can also release noticeable amounts of oxytocin into your bloodstream. In women, oxytocin increases the mother-child bond. In men, it can magnify existing feelings of closeness and caring. Artificially produced oxytocin is available in a nasal spray. It is available on-line and without a prescription. If you choose to purchase it that way, be sure to buy from a reputable seller.
The human body is a wonderfully complex creation and modern science can help us keep ourselves in tip-top shape.
