What are peptides?
Peptides are short chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins. Amino acids are made up of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen, and they have many functions in the body. They give proteins their structure, transport nutrients, and initiate various functions at the cellular level. When amino acids link together, these chains are called peptides.
