Peptide Therapy

What is peptide therapy?

Peptide therapy is the targeted use of peptides to produce a specific reaction in the body. Some peptides have been shown to assist with weight loss by stimulating the breakdown of visceral fat. They may also be utilized to reduce inflammation.

Peptides are smaller and less dense than proteins, so they are more easily absorbed by the body. This enables them to penetrate intestines and skin more easily, allowing faster entry to the bloodstream.

Peptides facilitate cell-to-cell communication, essentially telling the body which cells to turn on and off. This means you can re-activate cells that may have gone dormant or need an extra boost.

Peptides are available in a variety of products, including oral supplements, skincare products and injectable therapies.

What are the benefits of using peptides?

Peptides carry out a wide variety of functions including:

  • Acting as hormones
  • Decrease body fat
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Fighting against the effects of aging
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Acting as antioxidants to scavenge free radicals
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Strengthen skin barrier
  • Improve immune function

Research also shows that peptides can help treat hypertension, prevent blood clots, and boost immunity.

The promise of Medically Managed Peptides is great. This new medical discipline is an anti-aging solution that can help you feel and look your best without using chemicals, medications, or surgery. Maybe you’re not sleeping as well as you used to or are not performing at your peak physically. Maybe you’re feeling run down and need a boost of energy. If so, you may be a candidate for Medically Managed Peptides.

Are peptide injections safe?

They are safe to use and educated prescribing is vital. Like any medication or treatment, peptides can have risks, side effects and contradictions. For example, some may be avoided if the patient has a history of cancer. Despite the relative safety of peptide therapy, you should still get medical guidance.

While peptides themselves are relatively safe, it is possible that other ingredients in peptide products can cause an allergic reaction, particularly topical skincare products. You should always check the ingredients in a supplement. Obtaining peptide therapy through a licensed and trained physician is the safest way to get peptide therapy.

Some examples of our favorite peptides…


Thymosin-alpha

This is a peptide made by the thymus gland that can help modulate the immune system in balancing innate and adaptive responses. It has been shown to specifically improve the T-cell mediated immune response.

Thymosin-beta (TB-4 or TB500)

This thymus peptide contains 43 amino acids and has been shown to act as an immune modulator and anti-inflammatory and can help regenerate damaged tissue, from acute injuries or after surgery

AOD-9604

This “anti-obesity” peptide is a modified chain of amino acids from growth hormone, which is 191 amino acids long. The last 15 amino acids (176-191) is called GH Frag 176-191 or AOD 9604. This peptide stimulates lipolysis or fat burning and is used to assist weight loss, and has other benefits as well.

Ipamorelin (CJC 1295)

Ipamorelin contains 5 amino acids and stimulates the release of growth hormone. Rather than injecting growth hormone, Ipamorelin allows the body to naturally produce growth hormone and can be used to help with weight loss and muscle growth.

CJC-1295

This hormone is made up of 30 amino acids and is used to increase muscle growth, bone density, cognitive function, memory, collagen production, and improve cellular repair and regeneration.

BPC-157

This peptide is most often used to aid in joint recovery but helping to improve healing and growth of healthy tissue. It can also help reduce inflammation, and acts as a potent antioxidant.

Did you know?

The most common types of peptides used for peptide therapy are: growth hormone-releasing peptides (GHRP), growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) thymus peptides, and peptides that target the healing process.

Peptides can be taken orally, as an injection, or intranasally.
