What is Peptide Therapy?
Peptides occur naturally in the human body and are considered the building blocks of proteins. With more than 7,000 known peptides in humans alone, these chains of amino acids are known to regulate a wide range of biological functions and processes in our bodies and also provide a wide range of therapeutic applications.
Some of the many bodily functions peptides are involved in include:
Anti-Aging and Cellular Rejuvenation
Immune system function
Common Peptide Therapy Treatments
Peptides can deliver hormones directly into the bloodstream.
CJC 1295 / Ipamorelin is a great example, as it promotes memory retention, increased metabolism, and pain relief. By administering this peptide, the pituitary gland is stimulated to produce more of it naturally.
Some peptides for weight loss induce lipolysis, or the breakdown of fat cells, while also boosting metabolic functions and muscle building capabilities.
CJC 1295 is a synthetically produced peptide (unlike other peptides), and yields significant results for boosting protein synthesis, thus promoting metabolic function.
AOD 9604, a peptide that helps combats obesity, burns fat by stimulating the pituitary gland and regulating metabolism. It can even inhibit the formation of fat in the body, while simultaneously benefiting bone health.
PT-141 also known as Bremelanotide, is used as a safe and effective treatment to combat male and female sexual dysfunction without the need for prescription medications.
Sexual benefits derived from this peptide includes increased sexual desire in men and women without an adverse effect on the vascular system, boosted sex drive, and increased energy. Results depend on the individual, however many women reportedly felt effects in as little as a few minutes, and lasting up to 72 hours following injection.
Anti-Aging and Aesthetics
CJC 1295 is a synthetic form of GHRH ( growth hormone releasing hormone) and can improve memory and energy, while boosting the body’s metabolic function. Aesthetic advantages include improved skin quality and tightness and reduction of frown lines, crow’s feet, hair regrowth, under-eye bags, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
Glutathione is one of the most potent natural antioxidants existing in nature and combats oxidative stress from everyday environmental factors. When the body is protected from the “wear and tear” of oxidative stress, it is simultaneously protected from premature aging.
