What Are Polypeptides?
Polypeptides are short chains of amino acids naturally occurring in the body and are the primary regulators of intercellular communication. These signaling peptides function as messengers in the body. Research suggests that polypeptides derived from mammalian sources may be used in immunotherapy, which may help slow down a hyperactive immune system or stimulate a suppressed immune system.
Maintaining homeostasis or balance of the immune system is key — if the immune system is overactive or underactive, a person is susceptible to acute or chronic diseases.
The immune system is typically in a state of homeostasis and when in this state, the body is well-equipped to ward off infection and support the healing process. An overactive immune system can cause the body to overreact to allergens or other substances that are generally harmless, leading to inflammation that results in tissue damage. Comparatively, an underactive immune system increases the body's susceptibility to infection or other harm.
Leaky gut is one of the leading causes of an overactive or underactive immune system. It occurs when the lining of the small intestine becomes exceedingly permeable and enables toxins, pathogens, and undigested food particles to enter the bloodstream. In this instance, the immune system attacks these substances as “foreign invaders,” resulting in inflammation. Next, if the inflammation becomes chronic and systemic, the immune system starts to attack healthy cells in the body, and the overall immune function deteriorates.
In addition to an overactive or underactive immune system, some studies suggest leaky gut may contribute to chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, and other short- and long-term health problems. Yet polypeptide therapy supplements contain polypeptides that may help support immune function and response within the body.
Polypeptides are believed to possess immunomodulating properties, so they may be able to help tone down an overactive immune system or stimulate an underactive one. This is particularly beneficial if there is an abundance of inflammation in the body.
