Naturally occurring peptides in your body are short chains of amino acids. They act like proteins and like hormones.
As we approach middle age, many of us wonder: Why am I always tired and have no energy? When did my waist get so thick? How can I become more sexually active without meds?
Experts of our clinic have been answering these questions for years. Our team of doctors is trained to target the root cause of your accelerated aging: peptide imbalance.
Your unique aging process can be decelerated with custom peptide therapy to correct biochemical imbalances that can eventually lead to much graver autoimmune dysfunctions – like diabetes and hepatitis.
Our peptide protocol can boost your energy and stamina, enhance your sex drive, improve your skin’s elasticity, sharpen your mental focus, lower your body fat and cholesterol, improve your bone density and decrease your muscle pain. It may even promote fuller hair growth and delay wrinkle development.
What are peptides?
The 7,000 naturally occurring peptides in your body are short chains of amino acids. They act like proteins and like hormones. Their job is to bind to a receptor on the surface of a cell or molecule and deliver instructions.
Each specialized peptide sends highly specific signals to each cell. Then, that cell does only what the peptide demands – which could include crucial antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and antitumor functions.
Peptide supplementing supports the hormones that send commands to your cells to perform every physiological function: growth, muscle tone, bone density, metabolism, emotional response, and sexual performance.
As we age, however, our natural hormone and peptide levels begin to drop. So, we give nature a little boost. Because it’s so precisely targeted to only the cells that need it, peptide therapy is very safe and well-tolerated. Peptide supplementation is one of the easiest, most efficient anti-aging therapies out there.
How do you know whether you’re peptide-deficient?
We treat every aging body like the unique ecosystem it is. Before reaching any conclusions or writing any prescriptions we will diagnose and analyze your specific imbalance.
To determine which peptides require supplementing we will do one or more of the following:
- blood test to measure growth hormone level;
- blood test to measure other hormone levels affected by HGH;
- binding protein level (IGF-I and IGFBP-3) blood tests determine whether your pituitary gland is causing your symptoms;
- GHRH-arginine provocative test;
- insulin tolerance test.
After assessing your levels, our doctor will consider your age, general health, exercise regimen, and symptoms – as well as your tolerance of those symptoms – before prescribing a custom peptide protocol.
Benefits of Peptide Therapy
Some of the most common and most effective peptides our doctor delivers include Human Growth Hormone (HGH), the growth hormone secretagogues Sermorelin, Ipamorelin, and CJC 1295.
Secretagogues are much more than low libido supplements. They stimulate your body to secrete its own natural HGH, which regulates fat cell death, decreases inflammation, increases lean muscle mass, and addresses age-related osteoporosis, obesity, and inflammatory autoimmune disease.
Once a doctor determines which peptide and dose are right for your body, expect your peptide therapy to:
- speed up fat metabolism by breaking down fat and fatty acids;
- build muscle cells to improve body composition;
- boost energy & aid in workout recovery;
- increase testosterone production to boost libido;
- regulate red blood cell production;
- accelerate protein synthesis;
- improve heart function;
- reduce your liver’s uptake of glucose (staving off diabetes);
- improve bone density by increasing calcium retention;
- regulate insulin-producing pancreatic islets;
- boost immune function;
- accelerate wound healing;
- enhance non-REM slow-wave sleep.
Which peptides we prescribe?
This secretagogue prompts your pituitary gland to secrete more of the growth hormone that’s already stored in your body by releasing peptides 2 and 6. Sermorelin was originally bioengineered to help children increase growth hormone production. Clinical trials have demonstrated that it can also help adults promote health and vitality well beyond middle age.
By delivering the right amount of growth hormone into your bloodstream our doctor can help rebalance your other hormones, slowing down the tissue degeneration on a cellular level. Your age, lifestyle, and unique biochemistry will help him determine how many, how often, and for how long to deliver sermorelin.
Ipamorelin is composed of 5 amino acids that mimic your pituitary gland’s natural GH release. Unlike other peptides, Ipamorelin does not stimulate the release of the stress hormone cortisol, so it brings more benefits with fewer side effects (like increased hunger). Because it’s so safe and effective Ipamorelin can be prescribed more aggressively.
A powerful low libido treatment, this amino acid peptide hormone stimulates the secretion of growth hormone – without disrupting your cortisol (stress hormone) levels – so your mood and wellbeing aren’t compromised.
When professionally delivered and monitored, your custom CJC 1295 dose can increase your protein synthesis, improve your post-injury recovery, reduce your body fat, and strengthen your immune system.
Coined “the sex peptide”, PT 141 is a safe, natural alternative to Viagra or Cialis. It can resolve erectile dysfunction or impotence in men, as well as sexual arousal disorder in women. Unlike those pharmaceuticals, this neurotransmitter circumvents your vascular system to target your nervous system directly – activating your dopamine hormones and arousing sexual desire.
As an extra bonus, this low libido treatment has also been shown to boost energy without harmful drinks or pills. And, because it was developed from the Melanotan II peptide, this multi-function peptide also acts as a sunless tanning agent.
After analyzing your medical history and whole health, a doctor will determine which dosage of which peptide to deliver via one of these methods:
- subcutaneous: injected into the body fat just under the skin using a very small needle before bedtime to mimic the body’s circadian rhythm; sermorelin shots are initially prescribed for six days per week, then decrease in frequency over time;
- oral tablets: controlled doses taken under the tongue, transmitted through the mouth membrane into the bloodstream.
