What are Peptides?

Peptides are short-chain amino acids that are naturally found in the body. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and these particular amino acids enhance specific bodily functions.  As we age, the number of peptides our body produces declines, which is why supplementation via peptide therapy is essential. 

What is Peptide Therapy?

Peptide therapy involves replacing peptides using the body’s existing sequences to regulate and rejuvenate bodily functions. In doing so, the additional peptides are able to imitate the functions of natural peptides to increase human growth hormone production (HGH), thereby improving overall health and well-being depending on the type of therapy that is administered. 

How is Peptide Therapy Administered? 

Peptide therapy can be administered in several ways. For fastest absorption, we recommend administering peptide therapy via subcutaneous injections. Other methods include oral capsules, nasal sprays, and topical creams. The methods for administering peptide therapy vary depending on their type and the doctor’s recommendation.  

Types of Peptide Therapy

There are a few different types of peptide therapy meant for targeting specific health conditions and goals including BPC-157, CJC-1295/Ipamorelin, AOD 9604, Sermorelin, and Thymosin Alpha-1.  

1. BPC-157 for Injuries and Muscle Aches

A combination of muscle overuse and aging can lead to muscle, tendon, and ligament issues that affect our daily lives. The BPC-157 peptide has been shown to speed up the body’s natural healing process by promoting the activity of the body’s growth hormone receptor and increasing blood flow to the injured area. It can be especially useful for athletes, in addition to the average person who suffers from past injuries or daily aches and pains. BPC-157 can help heal muscle sprains, ligament damage, and even skin burns. 

Benefits of BPC-157 include:

  • Accelerated healing of connective tissues, muscle, and joint damage 
  • Anti-inflammatory properties
  • Decreased pain
  • Improvement in digestive function 
  • Gut healing

2. CJC-1295/iPamorelin for Muscle Growth

CJC-1295/Ipamorelin is a combination of two growth-hormone releasing peptides (GHRP) that mimic the body’s natural hormones. Ipamorelin stimulates the pituitary gland to produce GH. CJC-1295/Ipamorelin is most commonly used to increase bone density and muscle mass, among other benefits.

Benefits of CJC-1295/IPamorelin include: 

  • Increased lean muscle mass 
  • Reduced body fat 
  • Enhanced energy levels 
  • Improved sleep 
  • Improved recovery and repair from injuries 
  • Increased sex drive 
  • Stronger immune system 

3. AOD 9604 for Fat Reduction

AOD 9604 was developed and FDA-approved to combat obesity by speeding up the metabolism to burn body fat. Specifically, this peptide has shown to reduce abdominal fat without affecting blood sugar levels. Additionally, AOD 9604 is able to prevent the body from turning non-fatty foods into fat. 

Benefits of AOD 9604 include: 

  • Reduced body fat 
  • The ability to imitate the way natural growth hormone regulates fat metabolism
  • Increased mobility of stored energy during fasting or exercise
  • Regenerative properties associated with growth hormone 

4. Sermorelin for Increased Energy and Endurance 

Sermorelin is a peptide that stimulates growth hormone release from the pituitary gland. Sermorelin has many energy boosting effects, allowing for increased endurance and vitality. It can also help with weight loss by giving you the energy needed to fuel intense workouts. 

Benefits of Sermorelin include:

  • Increased lean body mass
  • Reduced body fat 
  • Improved energy and vitality 
  • Increased endurance and strength 
  • Accelerated wound healing 
  • Improved immune function 
  • Improved cardiovascular function 
  • Improved sexual performance and libdio 
  • Improved sleep 

5. Thymosin Alpha-1 for Enhanced Immune Function

Thymosin is a peptide that has been shown to enhance the function of certain immune cells called T and dendritic cells. These white blood cells play crucial roles in the body’s defense mechanisms in those with a suppressed immune system or suffering from an infection. In fact, Thymosin Alpha-1 has been shown to reduce mortality rates of severe disease, including COVID-19. It may also be able to boost COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness, although more research is needed to confirm. 

Benefits of Thymosin Alpha-1 include: 

  • Exhibits antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties 
  • Suppresses tumor growth 
  • Increases vaccine effectiveness
  • Protects against oxidative damage

Who is a Good Candidate for Peptide Therapy? 

Peptide therapy is beneficial to anyone who wishes to slow down the aging process and increase vitality. Furthermore, individuals who are overweight and are trying to lose body fat and build muscle will also greatly benefit from the treatment. Peptide therapy is also commonly used by athletes to improve performance. 

How Long Does it Take to Notice Results of Peptide Therapy?

Many men begin to notice results as soon as one month after therapy, however, it can take six months to a year to fully experience all of the health benefits.
