Peptides are the building blocks of proteins, offer many of the structures in the body – including hair, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. They form the hemoglobin in the blood, which carries oxygen around the body to the muscles and organs. Peptides are also the major building blocks for enzymes that catalyze chemical reactions of cellular functions, and provide the signals on the outer surface of cells can communicate their body systemically. Peptides have many uses, and most of them are necessary for life.

Silk

Silk is a chain of peptides formed in a structure called a beta-pleated sheet. Silk is strong, light and durable because of the way and the peptides bind protein folds. Silk is produced from spiders and some worms. Peptide structure is essential for the survival of organisms to catch food and protection from the elements.

Collagen

Collagen has been a focus for cosmetic industries, as the cure for wrinkles. Collagen is a part of the skin that makes tight and firm as well as maintaining the appearance of wrinkles. The sun destroys collagen, causing it to die prematurely. Several companies offer collagen cosmetics products to reverse the progression of wrinkles. Moisturizing also protects collagen damage, leaving the healthier skin.

HIV Treatment

HIV is an RNA virus that infects immune cells. More specifically, T cells are infected, inhibiting the body’s ability to destroy invading microbes. Researchers at Purdue University have developed enzymes that prevent dimerization of the HIV structure. Inhibition of HIV bonds allows drugs that interfere with virus binding to cells, limiting the number of infections in people.

Antibiotics

Peptides are the building blocks of proteins, and proteins are hemoglobin. Hemoglobin circulates oxygen within the air inhaled tissue and organs within the body. However, researchers in the USA discovered that hemoglobin also helps in protecting bacteria from entering into the body.

A number of people experiencing sports injuries and traffic accident injuries which affects muscles, which need to undergo years of therapy and treatment only to end up with little or no relief.

It is done by the doctor with his hands to move muscles so you can assess the movement of muscles and tension and texture so you can locate the exact spot of scar tissue. This treatment is done with the patient to actively help make range of motion movements.

Mostly treatment lasts anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes, but the number of treatments required will vary, depending on the severity of the condition is. A patient can go through 10 treatments for the condition can be corrected. First treatment can be painful, but the patient will start to see a substantial amount of improvement as the treatment progresses, becoming less painful after the last treatment. When the patient has completed all treatments, he will have better range of motion and increased function and muscle strength.

This year, I had an unorthodox Thanksgiving, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that I have so much to be thankful for. Even though I’m 3,000 miles away from my family, I know how lucky I am to be where I am, and I’m so grateful for all the blessings this year has brought me. And after all, I did celebrate Thanksgiving – albeit two weeks early. My parents scrambled together all the family they could (not to mention an amazing feast) so that I would be able to enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner while I was home back in the beginning of November. I got to do all of my favorite holiday rituals like making the pumpkin pie (although my mom always makes the crust – she’s the best at it!) and setting the table. It was definitely a highlight of my much needed trip home. So whether you’re with or without your family today, reflect on the things you’re grateful for and most of all have a happy Thanksgiving!

Homemade goodies as gifts have always been a winner around the holidays. Nothing says “I love you” or “Thank you” like a delicious, made-from-scratch, treat that can be enjoyed by a whole household. This Christmas, my mom really wants to make homemade caramels to eat, enjoy, and share with our loved ones. I absolutely love the idea and hope to be able to help her! I’ve also been eying these candy recipes to give a go:

Terrfic Tofee

Sweet Cherry Truffles

Oreo Truffles

Peppermint Sticks

Candy Cane Bark

Dark Chocolate Candy Bark

Don’t all of these options inspire you to get baking and making yummy candy for the holiday season? Okay, okay I know not all of us are great in the kitchen (myself included) but regardless, this at least makes me want to eat some candy! Have a sweet day xoxox

I have a weird relationship with bananas. I like them, but only if they’re still sorta green. The minute I see ANY brown spots, I can’t eat them. I know this may be unfair to the banana, and to my wallet since I can never go through a whole bundle without throwing at least two away, so I’ve tried using these older bananas in recipes.

I made banana chocolate chip muffins not too long ago and recently I tried freezing bananas. They (people on Pinterest) say this tastes like ice cream but I never really bought into that. But that was before I tried freezing them after they’d be coated in a delicious mixture of peanut butter and chocolate. Enter: frozen banana bites! *Applause*

They may not be vanilla ice cream, but they are super easy, super creamy, and super delightful as a dessert. Plus, they’re still fruit and they still have fiber! So they’re good for you right? Right?!

*side note=these pictures were the best I could take at 8:45 in the morning when I decided to make this recipe even though I was still in my robe with my hair in a towel and I had to be at class in fifteen minutes. So I apologize for their quality but I wanted you to still get the picture, get it?!?!

This recipe is super simple and I sort of just eyeballed it. Start out with these ingredients: bananas (I only used one because that’s all I had on hand but you could definitely use as many as you wanted), chocolate chips, and peanut butter.

Place chocolate chips (I used about half a cup) and peanut butter (I used maybe 1 tbsp) in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for about 1 minute, stopping every 30 seconds to stir.

*Note=learn from my mistake and follow the “stop every 30 seconds to stir” tip. I didn’t do this. I suffered burned fingers as I tried to take the bowl out the microwave after 1 minute. Ouch.

Cut the banana into 1.5 or 2 inch chunks and place on foil, wax, or parchment paper. Stir the chocolate mixture until it’s completely creamy.

Dunk banana chunks in chocolate mixture. I found that it was easiest to dunk and then spoon more chocolate on top of the bananas so they were evenly covered.

Place bananas on foil or wax or parchment paper in an air-tight container and freeze for at least 2 hours. Then enjoy! xoxoxo
