What is Peptide Therapy?

Peptide therapy is the use of specific peptides to carry out specific functions within 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 and hormonal functions, but tend to decrease in concentration within the body as we age.

Peptides come in different oral and injectable forms to aid the body with very specific functions. They provide signaling and carry out very specific cell functions that can aid in recovery, tissue repair, immunity, growth hormone production, muscle building, mental cognition and many other vital functions.

10 Best Peptides for Peptide Therapy

AOD-9604

Anti-Obesity Drug-9604 (AOD 9604) is a synthesized derivative of human growth hormone (HGH). An FDA-approved anti-obesity medication, AOD-9604 aids in losing weight by interacting with hormones and the pituitary gland to stimulate metabolism and fat oxidation. This peptide has also been found to treat mild symptoms of osteoarthritis by supporting bone health.

Ipamorelin/CJC 1295 (Blend)

A peptide blend primarily used to stimulate the release of HGH from the pituitary gland, CJC 1295/Ipamorelin increases energy levels, treats a variety of inflammatory conditions, and enhances overall fitness and health.

BPC -157 (Body-Protecting Compound)

Derived from the body-protecting protein found in the stomach’s gastric juices, BPC-157 has been shown to provide the following therapeutic benefits:

  • Accelerates healing of soft tissue injuries
  • Decreases systemic inflammation and pain associated with inflammation
  • Has cytoprotective properties that support cellular functioning during illness
  • Improves blood flow and the circulatory system as a whole
  • May help relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulceritis, and leaky gut.

Thymosin Beta 4

A small-chain peptide that promotes angiogenesis (creation of new blood vessels from existing blood vessels), thymosin beta 4 also expedites wound healing, supports hair and skin health, and may minimize signs of skin aging, such as fine lines, dryness, and sagging.

Sermorelin

Composed of over 25 amino acids, sermorelin  is a synthetic growth hormone-releasing hormone that supports immune, nervous and endocrine system health. In addition, sermorelin stimulates cell growth within the heart and pancreas, and may also offer tumor-inhibiting properties.

PT-141

A synthetic peptide derivative of alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH), PT-141  treats low libido in both men and women and may help men with erectile dysfunction. Some research indicates that PT-141 may also provide anti-inflammatory and weight loss properties as well.

MK-677

A peptide that significantly increases growth hormone levels in the body, MK-677 is frequently used as a dietary supplement by competitive athletes and bodybuilders to build muscles and stamina. Not only does MK-677 replenish serum growth hormone but it also enhances bone density by reversing bone mineral loss and improves sleep quality.

MOTS-c

Mitochondrial ORF within the Twelve S rRNA c (MOTS-c)is a peptide associated with mitochondrial activity and metabolism. Like other peptides, MOTS-c levels in the body tend to decline with age. Scientists speculate that MOTS-c may be implicated in regulating the health and lifespan of individuals since its decline correlates with certain age-related diseases. MOTS-c promotes weight gain, stimulates fatty acid oxidation within the liver, and facilitates the metabolism of glucose into energy.

5 Amino 1MQ

Nicotinamide-N-methyltransferase (NNMT) is an enzyme implicated in obesity, type II diabetes, and insulin resistance. By inhibiting the production of NNMT, 5 amino-1-methylquinoline (5-amino-1MQ) can support dramatic weight loss without drastically limiting food intake. 5-amino-1MQ has also been proven to treat systemic inflammation, restore muscle tone and strength, lower cholesterol, and regulate blood sugar levels.

Why Do People Get Peptide Therapy?

Medications do not address the underlying cause of many health problems. They only mask symptoms that re-emerge as soon as the medication wears off. Peptide therapy provides continual symptom relief by sustaining optimal levels of peptides and peptide derivatives at the cellular level in order to eliminate pain, fatigue, and general feelings of unwellness.
