Use of Peptides in Anti-Aging with Dr. Abid Husain

In this episode of ALIve, Dr. Husain continues the discussion of peptides that he started in an earlier episode titled “Best Non-Prescription Ways to Improve Longevity.” Peptides, a generalized term for cell-signaling molecules, have been around for over 100 years.
