ABOUT
Peptide Therapy

Peptide therapy refers to a specialized form of treatments designed to increase human longevity and performance through the emerging science of cell-signaling in the body through amino acid sequences.

At a fundamental level, amino acids are the building blocks of life.  Individual amino acids combine together in chains to compose peptides, and peptide chains that are larger than 50 amino acids are known as proteins.

Peptides can be found in every cell in the body, carrying out many critical roles including a range of therapeutic applications related to longevity and optimal function.  Some of these peptide-regulated activities include benefits related to anti-aging, preventing chronic disease, maintaining sexual health, and the body’s ability to lose weight or maintain ideal body weight.

WHAT ARE
Peptides?

Amino acid chains, or peptides, regulate a wide range of biological functions and processes. A peptide is a chain of amino acids, fifty or fewer in number. A protein is composed of long peptide chains. Our supply of these important signaling molecules decreases in both amount and efficacy over time. Fortunately, we have the ability to rejuvenate the body’s production and release of these important molecules. There are already over 60 FDA approved peptides on the market. Peptides are commonly used in everyday medical therapy such as Lisinopril, which is a commonly prescribed medication for high blood pressure and insulin for patients with diabetes.

Many peptides are administered through subcutaneous injection, some can also be taken orally or topically. The frequency and dosage vary from peptide to peptide.

Who Benefits from Peptide Therapy?

People with many different health and performance goals will often consider therapeutic peptides as part of their Live Optimized regimen. Peptides can be beneficial for a broad variety of individuals.  In fact, most adults regardless of chromosomal sex could benefit in some way from peptide therapy. If you are noticing any of the following symptoms, a consultation with a provider skilled at peptide therapy is something to set up to see if and how peptides might help.

  • Decreased muscle mass and strength
  • Fatigue, low energy
  • Poor concentration or memory
  • Increased abdominal fat mass
  • Poor quality sleep
  • Reduced vitality and overall energy levels

Peptide therapy may offer benefits including but not limited to better sleep, increase in muscle mass, weight loss, increased sex drive, overall improved mood, and a slowed aging process. Additional benefits people have found using peptide therapy include:

  • Better workouts and recovery
  • Improved muscle mass
  • Body fat reduction/weight loss
  • Improved energy, strength, and stamina
  • Strengthened immune system
  • Increased lean muscle development and growth
  • Improved libido
  • Improved erectile dysfunction
  • Accelerated wound healing
  • Better hormone regulation
  • Boosting natural HGH
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved cardiovascular function
  • Disease prevention
  • Improved digestive function

Several peptides are used to help increase hGH or human growth hormone production, which promotes tissue healing and repair within the body. Human growth hormone plays an important role in the maintenance of lean body mass, fat-burning, cardiovascular health, and cognitive function through sleep quality.

Common Peptides and How They Can Help

Sermorelin

Sermorelin

Sermorelin is a powerful peptide that stimulates the production and release of growth hormone from the pituitary gland in our brains through the GHRH pathway. This peptide serves to reinforce a naturally-occurring process in our bodies that slows in many of us as we age.

CJC 1295

CJC 1295

CJC 1295 is a GHRH (growth hormone-releasing hormone) analogue similar to Sermorelin, but a step up in intensity and specificity. CJC 1295 allows the anterior pituitary to follow the natural, pulsatile release of growth hormone without an increase in appetite, cortisol levels, and other important hormones. CJC is usually compounded together with Ipamorelin due to its ability to stimulate GHRH for enhanced results.

Ipamorelin

Ipamorelin

Ipamorelin is another growth hormone secretagogue that stimulates the production and release of growth hormone through the naturally-occurring ghrelin pathway. Ipamorelin can assist with physical recovery from exertion and can also augment fat-burning in combination with other weight-loss strategies. It is also thought to have immunity-boosting properties as well.

PT-141

PT-141

PT-141 works directly through the nervous system to increase arousal and libido or desire for sexual activity. Treatments like Viagra and Cialis work through the vascular system to assist in the achievement of an erection. PT-141 can help with erectile function while also improving desire and motivation for sexual activity as well.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT
In Terms of results?

Many patients will notice changes in their bodies over the first 1-3 months. However, the full benefit of therapy is typically noticeable after 4-6 months of treatment. The following are some changes patients may experience, though each individual’s genetic makeup and lifestyle vary and can impact the type and intensity of results.

Month 1: Improved mood, energy, stamina, sleep, and early, subtle changes in body composition (fat loss)

Month 2-3: Improved skin, hair, and nail quality improved muscle tone, metabolism, and continued changes in body composition (fat loss)

Months 4-6: Continued weight/fat reduction, improved hair and skin quality, increasing lean muscle mass, continued improvements in overall physique, increased energy, and vitality
