What Are Peptides?
Peptides are made by the human body from chains of amino acids, and they have many diverse functions within the body. Some peptides act like neurotransmitters (“messengers”), while other peptides act like hormones. Some peptides control or influence how the body reacts to diet and physical exercise.
Is Peptide Therapy the Same as Human Growth Hormone?
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is just one type of peptide that stimulates growth and supports cell regeneration. Released by the pituitary gland, HGH helps maintain tissues and organs throughout life. But, as a person ages, human growth hormone production declines. After the age of 30, HGH levels drop more than 1% a year. As a result, the body begins to show signs of aging, and ceases to perform at optimal levels.
In the past decade, Human Growth Hormone (HGH) supplementation has been used by some adults in attempts to improve energy, enhance exercise capacity, increase muscle mass, and decrease body fat. But clinical studies have shown that HGH replacement is not very effective – and may even have unwanted side-effects, including dependence.
Why is Peptide Therapy is Better for AntiAging than HGH?
Peptides are the smarter, safer, and more effective alternative to human growth hormone replacement. This is because peptide therapy naturally enhances and stimulates the body’s own natural production of growth hormone. So, peptide therapy does not create a dependence. Instead, it naturally renews the body’s own immune system, increases vitality and energy, and restores and maintains youthfulness, health, and well-being!
Because peptides have the ability to boost your body’s own natural growth hormone production – rather than fill the body with questionable synthetic HGH – peptide therapy is a much better anti-aging alternative to traditional Human Growth Hormone therapy.
What are the Benefits of Peptide AntiAging Therapy?
Peptides have dozens of uses, but the most common applications are:
- Build muscle through the development of new muscle cells
- Reduce fat through lipolysis (fat breakdown)
- Increased energy, strength, and stamina
- Improve libido and sexual function
- Reduce inflammation in the gut & musculoskeletal system
- Accelerate wound or surgery healing
- Improve regulation of other hormones
How are the AntiAging Peptides Administered?
Peptides can be injected or taken orally. However, oral peptides do not work as well as the injected forms, because they can be broken down in the stomach and digestive system.
Initially, injections are administered more frequently. Once levels become optimal and the benefits are achieved, injection frequency can be decreased, and a maintenance protocol is instituted to maintain peptide levels.
How Long do Peptides Take to Work?
Benefits of antiaging peptide therapy start within the first few weeks, during which time patients should see improved sleep and increased energy. Benefits such as increased muscle mass and decreased fat will continue to improve for 3 to 6 months before full effects are achieved.
Who is a good candidate for peptide therapy?
Because peptides are a natural therapy, they are ideal for virtually any man or woman who wants to look and feel more youthful – and live, work and perform sexually with more energy and vitality.
However, patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, taking medications, or have underlying medical disorders should discuss these conditions with their treating physician or one of our doctors before proceeding with peptide therapy.
