Peptides Explained FINALLY! October 04 2014
Since Eminence Organics released the Arctic Peptide Peel, I have had a lot of inquiries as the what peptides actually do. So, I thought I would explain it with some detail.
What is a peptide? The dictionary defines it as ‘a compound consisting of two or more amino acids linked in a chain, the carboxyl group of each acid being joined to the amino group of the next by a bond of the type -OC-NH-.’, I know, it’s confusing. Peptides are closely related to proteins, actually in a sense they are the building blocks of protein. They are amino acids linked together by bonds. Peptides are classified as proteins when there are more then 50 amino acids in a chain. By sending signals to your cells peptides and proteins are responsible for regulating most physiological processes, including COLLAGEN production, and now its starting to make sense.
