What is Peptide Therapy?
In recent years, the use of peptides in healthcare has grown and is now widely available as a treatment option for numerous conditions. I am always researching new advances in medicine to ensure our patients receive the highest quality of care. As such, we are proud to offer peptide therapy to our patients as a method of improving their overall health, wellness, and quality of life.
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, and 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.
What are the benefits of peptide therapy?
As stated above, peptide therapy is an extremely unique treatment option that can be used to treat a variety of concerns. Some of the benefits of peptide therapy can include but are not limited to the following:
- Accelerate healing processes
- Boost hormone levels
- Build muscle mass
- Decrease joint and muscle pain
- Enhance cognitive function and memory
- Help reverse symptoms of sexual dysfunction
- Improve sleep quality
- Increase levels of energy, stamina, and strength
- Lower blood pressure
- Promote healthy immune function
- Reduce signs of aging
- Stimulate hair growth
Why should I consider peptide therapy?
Since peptides are naturally found throughout the body, it is no surprise that when disordered, they can create ripples of effects across multiple systems that may affect other bodily functions such as your digestion, metabolism, weight loss, sexual desire, inflammation, neuropathy, and a myriad of age-related conditions.
Peptide therapy can aid in treating these conditions by mimicking your body’s own peptides, which elicit a particular desired response. As peptides are naturally occurring and specific in function, they are well tolerated within your body with minimal to no side effects of treatment. Generally, peptides used in therapy are crafted from animal or plant protein sources such as eggs, milk, meat, soy, oats, flaxseed, hemp seed, and wheat.
If any of the benefits mentioned regarding peptide therapy sound appealing to you, consider scheduling an appointment to talk to your doctor about the benefits of peptide therapy. A consultation with our team is the best way to ensure you find the right treatment option for your lifestyle and goals. For more information on peptide therapy and how we can help you, contact:
Commonly Recommended Peptides:
BPC-157(or, Body Protective Compound 157) is a peptide chain consisting of 15 amino acids that has been researched for its extremely high level of biological healing activity. It is derived from a protective protein found in the stomach and can be administered orally, subcutaneously, intramuscularly, or intranasally. BPC 157 is a type of peptide therapy that has been recently studied to produce systemic effects on both the brain and the gut, and repair those systems. It also has protective effects extending beyond the stomach and intestinal tract. It has been shown to benefit: ulcers in the stomach, intestinal damage such as fistulas and inflammatory disorders, bone and joint healing and growth rates, and organ damage. It also has influences on the brain.
TB-500 is a synthetic peptide of the naturally occuring healing protein present in about all human and mammalian cells known as Thymosin Beta 4 (TB4). TB 500 is thought to have beneficial effects on wound healing, injury recovery, flexibility, and inflammation. Research indicated the effects of TB 500 are on blood cell and blood vessel development, cellular differentiation, and cell migration. The healing capability is due in large from the peptide’s regulation of actin, a cell building protein essential to healing and wound repair. TB 500 is produced in the thymus gland and is found in high concentrations in wound fluids. Research demonstrates it has wound healing properties in addition to healing and repair of skin, cornea, and heart.
TB 500 is a naturally occurring peptide also found in high concentrations in blood platelets. TB-500 peptides for research are not growth factors; rather major actin regulating protein peptides. TB 500 plays an important role in protection, regeneration and remodeling of injured and/or damaged tissues. The gene that codes for Thymosin Beta-4 was noted in a study to be one of the first to be stimulated after an incident of injury. Present in almost all human and animal cells, Thymosin Beta 4 is naturally occurring wound healing peptide. TB 500 , a synthetically made version of TB4 that facilitates comparable healing and recovery by helping building new blood vessels, muscle tissue fibers, blood cells, and facilitating cell migration. For a stressed and injured person, TB 500 can offer an extremely desirable wound healing effects.
CJC-1295 is a synthetic GHRH (growth hormone releasing hormone) analogue made up of 30 amino acids. It has been found to be highly effective with regards to the increase of growth hormone secretion and IGF-1 without negatively affecting the pulsatility of GH secretion. CJC-1295 is often combined with Ipamorelin due to its enhanced specificity as a GHRH. This peptide generates similar increases in growth hormone secretion, but without the appetite stimulation and increase in cortisol, acetylcholine, prolactin, and aldosterone seen with other peptides in its class. This peptide has been found to be very well-tolerated and perfect when combined with Ipamorelin. Gland Stimulated: Pituitary
CJC 1295 offers many benefits to the body, including: Increased growth hormone secretion and IGF-1 Levels with no increase in prolactin, increased Body Weight and Length through increased protein synthesis, increased Muscle Growth, Bone Density, Immune Function, Cognition and Memory, Collagen Production, Fat Loss, increased Cellular Repair and Regeneration. CJC-1295 also promotes slow wave deep sleep, which is responsible for the highest level of muscle growth and memory retention and rejuvenation.
AOD 9604 has become a real heavyweight among people looking to become both leaner and lighter. While many consider it a weight loss wonder, this peptide is actually a fragment of human growth hormone (HGH). It’s natural ability to stimulate the pituitary gland helps to speed up your metabolism, which helps you burn fat and boosts your calorie burn—all without increasing your hunger or blood sugar. Fat doesn’t stand a chance against this naturally powerful peptide, whose impressive fat-fighting abilities can provide the following benefits, such as: Reducing body fat, increasing calorie burn, triggering fat release, boosting your metabolism, preventing non-fatty foods from turning into body fat, and reducing your appetite. In addition, there are no negative effects on blood sugar levels or tissue growth.
According to clinical studies, the remarkable power of AOD 9604 is found in its ability to regulate your body’s metabolism. By stimulating the metabolism’s natural fat-burning process, it triggers the release of fat from obese fat cells, while also working to decrease the growth of new fat in the surrounding fat cells. This results in greater weight loss and less overall body fat, without any uncomfortable effects on your appetite or blood sugar. Along with its recognized fat-burning qualities, additional studies have found that AOD 9604 may have a regenerative influence on bone & cartilage repair, particularly when it’s used along with peptide BPC 157.
PEG-MGF Pegylated Mechano Growth Factor is used for muscle recovery and new muscle growth. It binds to receptors and recovers the damaged muscle tissues, as well as signaling satellite cells to grow. This can be helpful to workouts, but also to age-related muscle loss issues and conditions. The benefit of PEG-MGF over the past variants of IGF, is that it doesn’t just repair damaged muscle tissue. Primarily, MGF is used in conditions requiring anabolic enhancement, including bony and soft tissue repair (e.g., tendon, ligament, muscle) following injury, sarcopenia (muscle wasting), stroke, or heart attack. PEG-MGF is a safe and effective option for use in patients who are looking to improve recovery and repair through anabolic signaling.
