The Next Thing in Hormone Replacement Therapy
Peptide Therapy is an exciting, cutting-edge medical science that uses specific amino acid sequences called “peptides” that, when properly administered, communicate with different parts of the body, potentially enhancing the function of the entire body by binding to receptors on the cell surface and signaling optimal messages for health improvement.
To date, over 7,000 naturally-occurring peptides have been identified. We are now seeing that Peptide therapy is gaining more notoriety with physicians because these peptides are highly specific in their action and very effective. Because peptides are mostly naturally occurring in the body, they are typically extremely well-tolerated and very safe.
- Peptide Therapy helps with a broad range of health conditions:
- Enhancing Growth Hormone Production
- Balancing Hormones
- Improving Sexual Disorders and Erectile Dysfunction
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Insomnia and Stress Disorders
- Treating Obesity
- Inflammatory Diseases
- Autoimmune disorders
- Tissue Repair, including joints, tendons and ligaments, and bone
AOD 9604 (Anti Obesity Drug)
This peptide is a fragment of the Human Growth Hormone molecule that is directly responsible for fat loss. It works by mimicking the way natural Growth Hormone regulates fat metabolism but without the adverse effects on blood sugar or growth that is seen with Growth Hormone. Recent findings have shown, in addition to its fat loss properties, AOD 9604 processes many other regenerative properties associated with growth hormone, in osteoarthritis, hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol), bone and cartilage repair.
BPC 157 (Body Protection Compound)
BPC 157, is isolated from human gastric juice and has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments. In addition, BPC 157 seems to protect organs and to prevent ulcers of the stomach. This peptide is also shown to decrease pain in damaged areas. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears and damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide. It can also help aid skin burns to heal at a faster rate and increase blood flow to damaged tissues.
Bremelanotide improves sexual arousal and spontaneous erections and therefore effective in treating sexual dysfunction in both men (erectile dysfunction or impotence) and women (sexual arousal disorder). Unlike Viagra and other related medications, it does not act upon the vascular system, but directly increases sexual desire via the nervous system.
Cerebrolysin is a nootropic peptide that possesses neuroprotective and neurotrophic repair properties. Cerebrolysin has been proven to have nerve growth action causing peripheral and central neuronal stimulation. It improves efficiency within the brain’s metabolic processes.
CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin
These are two very potent Growth Hormone Releasing Hormones (GHRH), that stimulate the cells of the pituitary to secrete and produce more Human Growth Hormone. It is a far more natural way to induce HGH production, with far less concern for side effects. These peptides are capable of improving sleep and recovery, enhancing skin health, and burning visceral (organ) and abdominal fat.
DSIP (Delta Sleep-Inducing Peptide)
Delta sleep-inducing peptide is a neuropeptide that induces delta EEG activity and reduced motor activities, or “deep sleep.” It also works in conjunction with other pituitary hormones such as the adrenal hormone adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH), and the thyroid hormone TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone). It is also abundant in the gastrointestinal system and in the pancreas, further enhancing a calming and deep sleep affect.
Epithalon is responsible to regulate metabolism in the pineal gland region of the brain. It also regulates the sensitivity of hypothalamus to its natural hormonal influences and regulates melatonin. Epithalon increases a person’s resistance to emotional stress and also acts as an antioxidant. It has been shown to lengthen telomeres in human cells, which is related to longevity.
Follistatin is a naturally occurring peptide and a potent inhibitor of myostatin. Myostatin breaks muscle down, therefore inhibition of myostatin will result in increased muscle mass.
GHK-Cu can promote activation of wound healing, attraction of immune cells, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, stimulation of collagen and improvement in skin and hair growth. GHK-Cu is used in cosmetics as a reparative and anti-aging ingredient.
GHRP 6 (Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide 6)
GHRP 6 is a true hGH secretagogue, which means it stimulates the body’s own secretion of hGH. Human Growth hormone has been shown in studies to promote lean body mass and reduce adiposity (fat). GHRP 6 acts at the ghrelin receptor which stimulates appetite. In therapy GHRP 6 is used to stimulate growth hormone production whilst increasing body mass.
GHRP 2 (Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide 2)
GHRP 2 can stimulate the pituitary to increase secretion of GH, stimulating ghrelin receptors to promote appetite. The main effects of GHRP 2 are GH secretion, appetite enhancement, fat mass decrease and muscle mass increase, lowering of cholesterol level, skin and bone strengthening, protection of the liver and anti-inflammatory action.
Selank and Semax
Selank and Semax are neuroprotective peptides that help with concentration, motivation, curiosity and curiosity. They can help with anxiety and depression while providing a calming effect.
Tesamorelin is a potent growth hormone releasing hormone peptide that has been shown to significantly increase IGF-1 levels. Tesamorelin has been shown to improve cognitive function, decrease carotid artery thickness, lower visceral (organ) adipose fat, and lower the inflammatory marker C-reactive proteins (CRP).
Thymosin alpha-1 is secreted from the thymus gland and is responsible for restoring immune function. This peptide is used in the treatment of hepatitis B and C. Additional possible indications are malignant melanoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, drug-resistant tuberculosis, and Di George’s syndrome as well as any chronic cancer or viral disease. Thymosin alpha-1 is also used for chronic fatigue and Lyme disease.
Thymosin is a hormone secreted from the thymus, also important for the immune system. Thymosin-beta4 has a role in tissue repair, and has been found to play an important role in protection, regeneration and remodeling of injured or damaged tissues.
