What is Peptide Therapy?
Peptide therapy is treatment method that stimulates cellular regrowth systems. Peptides are made up of short amino acid chains, and they are able to attach to receptors on the surface of cells. This allows them to provide cells and molecules with instructions for specific actions.
Peptides are critical to facilitating body responses and actions, and they can be beneficial for treatments of specific concerns. This treatment allows for the direct targeting of a wide range of concerns as peptides are malleable in function.
Benefits of Peptide Therapy
Peptides play a significant role in the regulation of multiple mechanisms of biological aging. Peptides have many functions in the body, some act like neurotransmitters, others like hormones.
Many peptides control and influence how our bodies react to diet and physical exercise. Isolation of these small peptides has led to a peptide theory of aging, which basically submits that the average lifespan can be increased by slowing down the aging process.
The theory is based on the underlying assumption that changes in gene expression result in decreased protein synthesis, eventually leading to aging and the development of diseases.
Stimulation of peptide production through the use of “peptide bioregulators” is designed to affect a specific organ, system, or condition in the body, using a highly specific short chain peptide to act as a shortcut to initiate protein synthesis and increase organ function.
Petides We Use
- BPC 157 is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) found in human gastric juice.
- BPC 157 can be used to accelerate healing of a variety of wounds including tendon-to-bone healing and healing of
- Acts systematically in the digestive tract to combat leaky gut, IBS, gastro intestinal cramps and Crohn’s disease

- Can be used to protect liver from toxic damage (alcohol, antibiotics, etc.)
- Promotes healing of traumatic brain injury (TBI).
CJC-1295 & Ipamorelin
CJC and ipamorelin are a class of peptides referred to as growth hormone secretagogues (GHSs), which stimulate the secretion of growth hormones. These peptides may support fat loss and growth of lean muscle mass, as well as improve your sleep.
The combination of CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin has been developed because the two can act together on the pituitary and hypothalamus to increase levels of growth hormone in your body. It is done in this way to maximize the amount of growth hormone being released into your body for therapeutic benefit while acting on two separate families of receptors.
MOTS-c is a mitochondrial-derived peptide that is primarily used for fat loss but has also shown efficacy
for muscle building, improved physical performance, and as an anti-aging peptide by reversing cellular
senescence*. Interestingly, the long-lived Japanese people (population with the most extended lifespan
in the world) have demonstrated the phenotypic expression and biological link between MOTS-c and an
5-amino-1MQ allows your body to burn fat for energy while maintaining muscle mass preferentially. 5-amino-1MQ is both safe and effective for reversing and preventing diet-induced obesity. It is a potentially superior treatment option for individuals suffering from (or who are at risk for) type II diabetes and other metabolic comorbidities to obesity. Furthermore, the activation of SIRT1 by an increase in NAD+ suggests 5-amino-1MQ is a good option for patients who are looking to develop a comprehensive
health protocol protocol.
Bremelanotide PT 141 is a unique peptide dervied from Melanota II that can generate sexual libido in both women and men instantly with its administration. For men who have tried Viagra and other sexual enhancements, this peptide has been shown to be especially effective toward treating erectile dysfunction.
GHK-Cu is a naturally occurring copper peptide which is naturally produced in many tissues in the body. Copper peptides are like this are naturally occurring protein fragments that have high affinity for copper ions, which are critical to normal body function. GHK-Cu has a variety of roles in the human body including, but not limited to promoting activation of wound healing, attracting immune cells, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, and stimulating collagen and glycosaminoglycan synthesis to help reduce wrinkles and fine lines in skin.
Thymosin Alpha 1
T-cells come in two forms: killer and helper cells. Killer T-cells are responsible for hunting down and destroying our body’s own cells that are cancerous or infected with bacteria or viruses. TA1 is thought to modulate the immune system by augmenting T-cell function. TA1 may affect thymocytes by stimulating their differentiation or by converting them to active T-cells.
Thymosin Beta 4
Thymosin Beta 4 is typically found in both types of muscle in the human body – skeletal (the muscles that are required to move) and smooth (muscles such as those in the heart). When damage to tissue occurs, Thymosin Beta 4 is upregulated. Thymosin Beta 4 is released in the body to help people heal from traumas. In the process of healing from injury, Thymosin Beta 4 also acts to reduce the amount of scar tissue and improve flexibility. It also has potent anti-inflammatory properties.
