Regenerate Inside Out - Bio-Active Peptides

Regenerate Inside Out - Bio-Active Peptides

Tissue and Skin Regeneration from Within

There has been much talk about the benefits of bioactive peptides or bio-peptides and how they might help reverse the ageing process, combat wrinkles and generally boost healthy living. Many commentators are pointing to the use of bio-peptides as the largest single contributor to healthy-looking skin, and stronger, youthful hair.

Topical and Oral Natural Peptides or Bio-Active Peptides

Bio-Peptides are now available in many different forms of anti-ageing tonics, serums, day and night creams and also as nutraceuticals and multivitamins that produce them like MSM & vitamin C, allowing you to experience the benefits of these youth-retaining natural beauty complexes externally and internally. But what actually are bio-active peptides and collagen peptides, and how do they affect your skin, tissue and overall health?

What are Peptides? 

Peptides are compounds of two or more amino acid molecules which are connected via peptide bonds. They have the same basic structure as proteins but tend to be shorter in length and so can be used to make different parts of cells and the body’s essential parts.  Usually seen in advanced skin creams as dipeptides or tripeptides, these are essential for maintaining the glow of your skin and keeping wrinkles at bay, and the key lies in proteins. To fully understand the value of proteins to the skin, it’s important to know what they are capable of achieving.

Peptides and Proteins

Proteins are the driving force behind cell life and are responsible for tissue repair, regeneration by the replacement of dead and worn out cells, and the construction of new tissue. Proteins form the basis of the human immune response and support the neurotransmitters in the brain; without sufficient of the right proteins your body will suffer from excessive degradation, and possible erosion of mental faculties. The human body has a huge turnover in cells and component parts. Typically, unused white blood cells renew every ten days, skin cells renew every 24 days and around ninety-eight percent of the body’s molecules are replaced every year!

After water - the basis of life – proteins are the most abundant substance in the body and have the most effect on how the body works and its ability to heal. Approximately a third of protein is stored in muscle, a fifth within cartilage and bone, a tenth of it in the skin with the remaining protein distributed throughout the other parts of the body. Along with water, we are creatures of protein, and that in turn impacts on our health and how we age.

Proteins and Amino Acids

But proteins themselves are constructed from amino acids, each of the twenty-two kinds having individual characteristics that join in different ways to form longer chain proteins of different forms and abilities; proteins are not one substance, but thousands of different substances and essential amino acids are a necessary part of healthy living and radiant skin. However, there are certain amino acids that must be eaten or applied, as the body is not capable of making them directly. Therefore, in order to ensure that we have a plentiful stock of the right proteins and peptides, we need to ensure that we are eating the right things and applying the right creams and supplements to pour skin.

Food vs. Synthetic Peptides

Protein itself is one of the best nutrients that you can include in your diet as it metabolises over an extended period of time and ensures an even blood-sugar level, rather than spiking, and that in turn means an even level of peptides which help protect your body against the ravages of the world and time itself. The importance of proteins as the building blocks of peptides is obvious, but what peptides, in particular, should you be looking out for and how do you get them? Certainly, from a skincare and anti-aging point of view, among the most important of the peptides are:

  • Palmitoyl. This is a so-called pentapeptide and is a collection of five amino acids, and is one of the best known and most ubiquitous collagen signalling peptides used in cosmetics today. Palmitoyl pentapeptide stimulates the synthesis of the key constituents of the skin matrix - collagen, elastin and glucosaminoglycans, aiding with protection and regrowth. 
  • Tripeptide 1. This peptide is combined with wheat and soy proteins to by the name of Adenine. Tripeptide 1 mimics the relationship of the growth factors involved in the usual healing process and in the synthesis of collagen. Specifically, it is supposed to stimulate the synthesis of collagen I and III, fibronectin and laminin. Tripeptide GHK is also an aldehyde sequestering agent that can capture lipid peroxidation by-products. As a result, it is also used for removing and preventing cellulite around the body.
  • Copper peptides. These are generally made by attaching copper to a GHK peptide. Copper peptides are renowned for their abilit toy aid the healing of wounds and skin damage and stimulate the growth of hair follicles. 
  • Acetyl hexapeptide 3. This the best known of the neuropeptides and works by limiting the neurotransmitters that tell your facial muscles to move thereby working as a form of natural Botox, but with a shorter working time.

Bio-Peptides Have Much Greater Bioavailability

Topical Bio-Peptides or Collagen Peptides

Peptides exist in many sources of food, but they may only be in low concentrations, so it becomes essential to bolster your system with supplements that can not only give you radiant skin but can slow the mental ageing process too. for the Ageless specialises in natural and highly concentrated topical bio-peptides or collagen peptides, with the addition of powerful anti-ageing ingredients like the bio-antioxidant complex Neovitin, made from Ginseng biomass and with the addition of argan oil and sodium hyaluronate to give a firmer and healthier look. Whether it is alpha-hydroxy acids, retinol, resveratrol, or any of the anti-oxidant compounds, getting a daily dose of peptide proteins can have enormously beneficial effects.

Oral Bio-Peptides


If you’re looking for deep skin or tissue regeneration without invasive surgery or dangerous chemical compounds, Russian bio-peptides are an ideal and relatively inexpensive solution. As natural supplements, oral bioactive peptides have been tried and studied for over 40 years with no reported side effects. There are 21 key peptide complexes that cover the main bodily functions.

Dr Khavinson and the gerontology team who developed this advanced anti-aging supplements, recommend using a combination of two or three at the time for tackling concerns. If you’re new to bio-peptides or are looking for a mild enhancement, you may want to start with one course, see the effect and then repeat as needed. The best thing about them is you don’t need to take them continuously and most people only do a one-course boost once or twice a year to maintain full benefits.

Final Word on Collagen Peptides and Bio-Active Peptides

Derived from the very building blocks of life, enriched collagen peptides (with bio-peptide complexes) are an obvious easy win when looking to stem the effects of the natural ageing process. However, making sure that you get the maximum benefit externally from them usually means using a highly recommended skin supplement along with a healthy diet that promotes quality organic peptides and proteins.

The new anti-ageing range of bioactive peptides is designed to ensure that your whole body benefits from this innocuous, fully natural and powerful compounds. By using products such as these, you can not only make the most of your skin and body now but give it a boost for the future too.

My sister is a dermatologist, so I know that peptides are essential to the skin. I use them daily in my day and night cream. I have been including this regimine for several years, and my skin has never looked better then it does now.

It would be great to say that I’m not aging, but unfortunately, that isn’t the case. I have never thought about peptides in this manner, but realise that they are essential for my skin’s health. I have seen products on the market that contain peptides, but assumed that they were only applied topically. I never realised that there were pills that could be taken for this. I am really curious about them now. I love the fact that you do not have to take them continuously and that to see full benefits, only one or two courses are needed per year.
