More recently, the research very clearly shows that the body absorbs both individual amino acids and small chain peptides, which are two, three, four, and five chains of amino acids still linked together. Small chain peptides are absorbed intact and, more interestingly, have specific biological activity in the body in addition to their direct nutritional value.
The healing properties of amino acids
Mike: This is new information for a lot of people. I want to make sure everybody gets this. You are saying that previously, conventional doctors thought that these peptides were molecularly too large to be absorbed into the blood stream through the intestinal wall, correct?
Tom: Through normal protein absorption mechanisms. They thought that they had to be broken down into the individual amino acids.
Mike: You are saying that the new research shows these are, in fact, passed through the wall into the blood stream intact as peptides?
Tom: They have specific biological activity in addition to their direct nutritional value. Now what I mean by that is if you have a three-chain peptide that is maybe argenine, tryptophan and glutamine, it has the nutritional value of those three amino acids, but the combination of them in peptide form has a specific action in the body as well.
Mike: It is almost like a hormone.
Tom: Or an enzyme, tissue repair agent, or a trigger for any number of different things. What is fascinating is if you do a Google search on peptide, what you will find is that a lot of pharmaceutical companies are now starting to identify specific peptides and their activity, synthetically reproduce them, and we are going to see a new generation of drugs that are individual peptides.
Unfortunately, the human organism does not work on individual peptides any more than it works on the active ingredient of an herb better than it acts on the whole herb or the whole protein -- not the whole intact protein, but the cascade of peptides that the body generates by the digestive process when it digests an intact protein down to who knows how many peptides.
The truth is when you think of how many two, three, four, and five chain peptides that you can create out of twenty-some amino acids, it is hundreds of thousands. The specific action of individual peptides is limited to a handful at this point. Maybe 15 or 20 have been identified for their specific actions.
