Peptide therapy is the targeted use of peptides to produce a specific reaction in the body. Peptides have a wide range of therapeutic applications. As the building blocks of proteins, they occur naturally in the human body, regulating a wide range of biological functions and processes, but tend to decrease in abundance and function with age. People with different health and performance goals often consider therapeutic peptides. Some peptides have been shown to assist with weight loss by stimulating the breakdown of visceral fat. They may also be utilized to reduce inflammation. Some peptides stimulate the production of human growth hormone and are utilized in anti-aging therapies or to increase muscle mass.
What is Peptide Therapy?
Peptides are made from amino acids that are linked together. They can be thought of as a small protein. They have many functions in the body including signaling and messaging. Some may act like neurotransmitters, while others may act like hormones. They bind to receptors on the cell surface and tell other cells and molecules what to do. Peptides are very specific which makes them safe, well tolerated and more importantly allow them to control and influence how our bodies react to physical exercise and diet. As of January 2015, there were over 60 US FDA-approved peptide medications, 140 peptide drugs being evaluated in clinical trials, and 500 in pre-clinical development.
As we age, production of essential amino acids and peptides decreases. As a result, our bodies begin to show signs of aging and cease to perform at an optimal level.
Most peptide medications are administered subcutaneously but can also come in the form of transdermal creams, nasal sprays, and oral tablets.
Benefits of Peptide Therapy:

Key Peptides That Can Assist You
Thymosin Beta 4
Thymosin Beta 4 promotes blood vessel, muscle cell, and skin cell regeneration and migration, resulting in more rapid and effective wound repair as well as faster recovery from injury. Thymosin beta is stimulated from the thymus gland.
Mechano Growth Factor (MGF) is a very potent inducer of muscle growth. It causes muscle cells in trauma to split, creating new muscle cells and resulting in muscle growth and repair. It is essential for recovery, repair, and growth of new cells.
IGF-1 is the next generation in performance enhancement for muscle building. It is the most important growth factor that our bodies produce, even more so than HGH.
CJC-1295/Ipamorelin combination has a strong effect on the release of Growth Hormone and IGF-1 and reduces body fat by forcing your body to burn its fat stores as a source of energy. This combo is also known to increase cellular repair, regeneration, and collagen production.
**Individual results vary. Best results promoted by a healthy lifestyle! These peptides are not approved or regulated by the FDA. Some of them have GRAS (Generally regarded as Safe) status with the FDA. These are compounded for human use by a U.S. 503A compounding pharmacy that provides these on a patient-specific basis. Our compounding pharmacy is able to produce these products because they have USP monographs and these peptides fit those criteria.
