But even as early as the fourth century B.C., Alexander the Great is claimed to have found a healing “river of paradise.” In many ways, we are still on a quest to discover the fountain of youth, though now the search has turned to science — medications, supplements, or therapies that hold some promise of turning back the hands of time and restoring our health and vigor. Today, more and more evidence points to peptides as the anti-aging solution we have long been seeking. Peptides are short chains of amino acids (between
