Dr. Daniel Stickler, co-founder of the Apeiron Center for Human Potential, discusses the potential therapeutic applications of peptides in human health and performance. Peptides are short chains of amino acids found in various sources and have a range of biological functions, including the regulation of hormones, influencing neurotransmitters, and modulating the immune system. They can also have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties. Dr. Stickler also presents a few examples of using wearable devices to gather biometrics, interpreting the data and acting on the insights gained to effect positive changes.
The original presentation was filmed during Biohacker Summit Helsinki, Finland, in October 2019.
