You’ve probably heard that amino acids are the “building blocks” of life. They are critical components of every bodily function, from breathing and digestion to cell generation. As people age, these compounds are naturally lost. AOD-9064 is a modified, synthetic form of the amino acid 176-191, which was initially used as an effective treatment for obesity. It has many other benefits though, particularly for bone health.
AOD-9064 works by stimulating the pituitary gland to secrete more of its own growth hormones, which naturally boosts the metabolism and results in augmented fat loss. Unlike other treatments that speed up the metabolism, like caffeine and other stimulants, peptide therapy will not cause nervousness, anxiety, or “the jitters.”
This specific peptide also works to target areas of excess fat buildup, such as the abdomen or thighs, where exercise and weight loss drugs really don’t have much effect. Stored fat is melted (lypolysis) and burned by the body’s newly-boosted metabolism, resulting in faster weight loss or effective weight management. The compound also inhibits a process called lipogenesis, which is the natural formation of fat from food and results in high cholesterol and triglycerides.
When used in combination with diet and exercise, peptide therapy for weight loss produces drastically noticeable and impressive results. Patients also report more success at keeping the weight off when achieved with peptide therapy than with diet and exercise alone.
The benefits of AOD-9604 aren’t limited to just weight loss or management. They extend to every system in the body, helping it to reach maximum functionality. Patients receiving AOD-9064 peptide therapy report the following benefits and more:
Although all peptides show excellent promise in the medical field, very few are actually approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) – but AOD-9604 is. Clinical studies have elicited demonstrably impactful results, including:
AOD-9064 is typically administered via subcutaneous injection, which is an injection with a short needle into a fatty area of the skin. The needle penetrates to a depth just underneath the skin, unlike an intramuscular or intravenous injection. These needles are thinner and smaller than traditional needles and are typically easier for patients to tolerate. This peptide can also be delivered via oral lozenge, although this is less commonly available.
AOD-9604 has an excellent patient safety profile and has very few side effects compared to the benefits patients receive from peptide therapy. There are currently no known health risks or adverse effects associated with AOD-9604 treatment.
