WHAT ARE PEPTIDES?
Peptides are the building blocks of proteins and are composed of amino acids that work to regulate a variety of biological functions and processes. These naturally occurring peptides act as signaling molecules within the body and instruct other cells and molecules on what functions to perform.
There are over 7,000 known peptides within the human body and though some may be similar each is responsible for facilitating a different response and action within the body. Some common functions of peptides include providing
- Pain Relief
- Aiding in Soft Tissue Repair
- Accelerating Healing Processes
- Promoting Weight Loss and Lean Muscle Gain
- Reversing Symptoms of Sexual Dysfunction
- Improving Hormone Production and Cognitive Function
The unique property of peptides can be harnessed and used to treat specific conditions; this treatment process is known as peptide therapy.
WHAT IS PEPTIDE THERAPY?
Though our bodies naturally produce peptides, the production of peptides can vary greatly by individual and as we age, the number and quality of peptides within the body may decline.
Peptide therapy refers to restoring the number of peptides to stimulate cellular regrowth systems within the body as a treatment option for specific conditions. Peptides are typically administered directly into the bloodstream through subcutaneous injections, but may also be applied as topical creams, nasal sprays, or oral forms.
This form of treatment can be entirely customized to the patient’s unique needs and goals. By using this targeted method, we can produce a specific reaction in the body and treat a variety of conditions.
Commonly Used Peptides
• AOD-9604 - Anti Obesity Drug
Developed for the treatment of obesity in humans. AOD-9604 is an FDA cleared anti-obesity peptide. Supports healthy metabolism and regulates sleep. This peptide is often used synergistically with other peptides such as MOTS-c for drastic weight reduction.
• BPC-157 - Regenerative, Anti-inflammatory
Significantly accelerates healing of wounds, ligaments, tendons, soft tissue, and organ systems. This peptide proliferates human growth hormone receptor sites, which allows the body to heal more rapidly. When paired with a GHRP such as Sermorelin, we are able to increase the effectiveness even more significantly .
• CJC-1295 + Ipamorelin - Fat Loss, Anti-aging
Stimulates the pituitary gland to produce and release Human Growth Hormone (HGh).The increase in HGh accelerates the production of lean muscle mass, cellular metabolism, and fat reduction.
• IGF-1 LR3 - Muscle Building, Metabolic Health
FDA cleared muscle building peptide that promotes an increase in lean muscle mass. This peptide helps reduces insulin resistance Works on stubborn weight loss by inhibiting the mobilization of glucose in the body.
Regulates metabolic functions throughout the body. Helps the mitochondria convert glucose into usable energy. Improves control over blood sugar levels in patients with Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity.
Growth-Hormone releasing peptide improves skin quality, collagen production and accelerates wound healing (anti-aging properties)
