Thought Signals to Your DNA
“We know that peptides are small proteins that are chemical messengers made in the hypothalamus and released by the pituitary. When they are released in the bloodstream, they find their way to different organs and tissues of the body. When they arrive at the surface of a cell, they interact with the receptor sites, large proteins that float on the surface of every cell so that the cell can selectively choose what can enter its internal environment and influence its inner workings.
Once a peptide fits into a receptor site, it changes the structure of the receptor, and sends a signal to the DNA.”
