Discovered in the 1980s by Professor Vladimir Khavinson, peptide bioregulators are short biologically active chains of amino acids designed to support and regulate tissue cells that make up the different body systems. The short chains of amino acids act as signaling molecules between the DNA and cells to promote tissue repair processes. They are also used as the building blocks of larger chains of amino acids to form the protein building blocks for the respective tissue that the peptide is targeting.
Some of the most notable uses of peptides are in the skin cosmetics industry. Palmitoyl pentapeptide-4 (Matrixyl) has been shown to penetrate the skin to promote the production of collagen, elastin fibroblasts, and glycosaminoglycans. Some have regarded this peptide as an anti-aging breakthrough resulting in smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines and rejuvenating the skin.
Professor Vladimir Khavinson has also written many articles on the topic as well as authored several studies looking into the unique properties of peptides. According to Khavinson, the use of certain peptides may help to support longevity.
