As men age, natural hormones such as a variety of peptides and testosterone begin to decline, causing issues like weight gain and low energy levels. Fortunately, the use of peptides can combat these age-related problems.
Peptides are short chains of amino acids that provide similar benefits to your body’s own hormones. They are often taken by bodybuilders and athletes as a performance-enhancing supplement to alter body composition. Using it in this way is a much more natural alternative to anabolic steroids.
One of the most researched types is AOD 9604, a synthetic analog of the human growth hormone, or HGH. It’s known for hindering obesity and aiding in weight loss. We regularly use it in our male patients to help them reach their body composition goals.
See why you should consider peptide therapy and the benefits to look forward to.
Peptides are used for many functions including body composition, skincare, anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory. Collagen peptides are very common, and what you would see in health stores today. It’s used for boosting skin, nail, and hair health but has been proven to protect against osteoarthritis. Whereas creatine peptides are the types of supplements used for bodily strength and muscle mass.
Unlike protein, peptides contain less amino acids and are easier to absorb into the body. Foods such as eggs, meat, milk, fish, beans, lentils, oats, and flaxseed, hemp seeds, and wheat contain peptides.
Peptides are responsible for sending messages from the brain to the rest of the body. By stimulating the pituitary gland in the brain, peptides signal your body to speed up your metabolism and jumpstart weight loss in a shorter time than exercise and diet alone. Keep in mind that peptide therapies are not a quick fix for transforming your body. While you will see positive results towards getting the body that you want, diet and exercise are still a fundamental part of attaining your goals.
AOD 9604 is FDA approved and often marketed as an anti-obesity drug. In particular, AOD 9604 is known to reduce abdominal fat, have no effect on blood sugar levels, prevent non-fatty foods from turning into body fat, and regulate the metabolism. Additionally, AOD 9604 can improve a body’s response to healing, encourage cellular growth, and heal torn muscles due to rigorous exercise.
There is some confusion surrounding AOD 9604 vs. HGH 176-191, but here is the difference between the two.
Human growth hormone 176-191 is a synthetic form of amino acids 176-191. This region of amino acids is known for playing a role in both the breakdown and formation of fat. HGH 176-191 targets fat cells and enhances the burning of fat. Unlike AOD, HGH stimulates the production of insulin-like growth factor-1, or IGF1 in the blood. High levels of IGF 1 can lead to damage to the joints, heart, and liver. It can also impact your glucose levels and result in low blood sugar. Because of this reason, AOD 9604 is considered the safest option to take, while HGH 176-191 is actually banned by several organizations.
We have one goal, which is to help you reach yours. With the use of peptide therapy, you will enjoy incredible results. Think better athletic performance and a lean figure. When starting AOD 9604 treatment, we work with you to create a customized plan that determines the exact peptides and dosage you should be taking. We may also suggest other peptides or hormone therapies to speed up results.
Peptide treatment is done via injections or oral supplements, depending on what you prefer. By taking into account your body and lifestyle as an individual, we can ensure the greatest results possible. Our medical providers are here to guide your efforts and monitor your results throughout the entire process.

Our medical weight loss program consists of several solutions to help you lose stubborn weight. Services such as InBody evaluations, appetite suppressants, lipotropic injections, phentermine supplements, and monthly doctor’s visits can get you in the best shape of your life.
Aging is treatable. We offer three anti-aging treatments that can be combined with peptide therapy or used as stand alone solutions to aging.
By improving immune function through thymic and immune regeneration, we can retain your youth and vigor. Together, iPamorelin peptides and metformin, a drug used to treat diabetes, can replace declining growth hormone levels. It may even prevent serious diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and neurodegenerative disorders.
inhibiting TOR cells gets rid of senescent cells, unhealthy cells that have been altered or are dysfunctional. Too many of these cells can lead to geriatric syndromes that age you even more. A class of medications are known to decrease TOR levels and improve a number of functions, essentially improving longevity.
A second class of medications known as senolytics are also able to target senescent cells. In animals, senolytics increased the lifespan of lab animals but 36 percent. They can also help with the appearance of skin and hair, decrease osteoporosis and arthritis, and reverse age-related neurodegeneration.
