What are Peptides? An Exploration of Their Role in the Future of Medicine

What are therapeutic peptides?

There are a handful of folks diving into the world of peptides, but it’s very possible you’ve never heard of them. We invite you to explore a whole new world with us, as we offer a glimmer of hope for the future of personalized medicine. Today we have on Ryan Smith interviewed by Dr. Dan Stickler. After noticing a unique opportunity, Ryan decided to leave medical school and help open up one of the first pharmacies in the United States that focuses on peptide synthesis and formulations for pharmaceutical preparations. We discuss:

  • What are peptides?
  • Popular peptides for common health issues and optimization (From gut health to obesity to athletic performance, and even tanning)
  • Biohacking and working with a medical care provider
  • Science and studies behind the compounds

Peptides are changing the landscape of how we support neurological health and enhance neurological functioning. -Ryan Smith
