What are peptides?
Peptides are a small protein or short chains of amino acids. Amino acids are a major part of our biology. Peptides are known as “The Building Blocks of Life,” – and it’s fairly simple to understand why. Our greatest functional potential in the body is created through protein.
Surprisingly, 20% of the human body is actually made up of protein and protein has a very important role. Much like some of the children’s toy building blocks, amino acids attach themselves to other amino acids in different variations and numbers to form compounds such as proteins, peptides, and peptide hormones.
What can I use Regenerative Peptide therapy for?
Regenerative Peptide therapy is a branch of medicine that uses peptides to help reprogram body chemistry, ultimately restoring cells to their healthy state. Our bodies produce more than 70,000 kinds of peptides, which bind to other cells and molecules and give them targeted directions. By tapping into and tweaking the body’s own biochemistry, we can direct those peptides to heal or restore damaged cells to bring the body back into balance Peptides have the potential to be highly specific and can to patients who are looking for anti-aging remedies from the inside out. This service will help boost immune function, energy, libido, cognition, and improve quality of sleep, weight loss, decrease inflammation, and increase hair growth.
How is it done?
Peptides are often injectable, thereby delivering them directly into the bloodstream where they can circulate throughout the body. Some may be injected directly into muscle tissue, under the skin, or directly into the area of trauma.
Why choose peptide therapy instead of pharmaceuticals?
Peptides offer patients the ability to have delivered results without the unending list of side effects and where health is achieved through our bodies own mechanisms. Because peptides are the basic building block of protein, one of our core 3 nutritional elements, our body recognizes their function, and we are able to work with the body for healing, not against it like most pharmaceutical drugs do.
How do peptides work to deliver results?
All the peptides in our body are capable of different roles and functions, and they do this by linking together to perform at optimal levels. The reason we are able to use peptides to address a wide variety of issues is because some of these peptides are able to function as neurotransmitters while others could act like hormones, making the possibilities for healing endless! Basically, they are biological molecules that, once they attach to a certain receptor on another cell’s surface, direct a response on a cellular level for certain tasks to happen. Since our bodies already recognize peptides and what to do with them, we can utilize them in a way that targets them to do exactly what we want them to do! This is why we can use peptides to assist in weight loss, expediting the healing process for injuries, supporting immune function and muscle growth.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where are peptides made?
Do I have to exercise while I take peptides or will I lose weight just by taking them?
When I decide to stop taking GH stimulating peptides, will my GH go back to pre-GH levels?
Do I have to continue using peptides once I start taking them to upkeep the benefits?
What part of the body is best for injecting peptides?
Can women use peptides to gain muscle mass?
Are there any times at which you should avoid taking peptides? (for example, if you are sick, starting a new medication, going to be drinking alcohol?)
Do injectables, creams, oral capsules or tablets and troches, all have the same absorption rate and effectiveness?
Injections are the best method of inserting any agent into the body, as 100% of the substance passes the physical barrier of the skin and the chemical barriers of digestion, absorption, and rest pass metabolism by the liver, to enter the body. The percentage absorption of substances that are applied on top of skin barriers will depend upon absorption across the barrier, which varies widely depending upon many factors, including, but not limited to:
∙ The physical size of the molecule
∙ Its concentration
∙ Duration of contact
∙ Its degree and polarity of charge
∙ Its lipophilicity (fat solubility)
∙ The carrier molecules used with it
∙ The physical condition of the skin
∙ The body part (i.e. amount of hair), etc.
∙ Transdermal nature of the base being used (in the cream dosage form)
Oral swallowed, oral/nasal sprays/drops/troches (lozenges) and skin (trans-dermal) creams and gels can all be used as access routes to the body’s cells. However, the degree of absorption will vary as said above. Usually, if a substance is provided for application by a certain method, then this method has been shown to be the most effective.
How long have peptides been around? Are they safe?
Peptides are not new in medicine, in fact, one of the peptides that has been used in medicine since the 1920’s is insulin! Ah, yes. Now, hopefully it is a bit easier to understand the relationship between peptides and your body! Insulin was the first peptide that came to market. That, was in 1921 and today, Insulin is a peptide that is not only familiar but used by many. Insulin is a peptide and its therapy provides a far less invasive alternative to medicines and procedures we have become all too familiar and complacent with. Insulin, for the medical industry, was a game changer.
There are many clinical published papers on the safety and effectiveness of peptides, most of which are available via an internet search, and many that are available through organizations, such as N.I.H. and The A4M.
Few peptides are FDA approved. In fact, peptides are not approved or regulated by the FDA although some of them have GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) status with the FDA.
Am I required to get a blood test before using any of the growth hormone peptides?
Are there any side effects to the peptides?
How fast will I see results using peptides?
Everyone is different, and results vary from person to person due to a multitude of genetic dispositions. Peptides begin their work on a cellular level instantaneously. However, you should not expect to see drastic visible changes immediately. Some patients notice benefits such as improved sleep within the first 7-10 days, others report increased strength, performance and other visible results in as little as two-three weeks, but as a general rule, you should commit to a 12-week cycle at a minimum for optimal results.
To ensure safety and reliability, your peptides should be prescribed by a physician. The safest way and most beneficial for your health and wellness optimization is to have your programs medically supervised. Your health is of utmost priority and risking it by buying or consuming unknown peptides purchased on line is not worth the risk. There are many online research labs that offer numerous peptides. They are cheap, not for human use, and aren’t held to the same standard as Accredited, U.S. pharmacies to ensure safety, sterility, and potency.

Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy can help improve overall wellness by supplementing essential vitamins and minerals your body needs. It can improve hydration, aids in absorption of lacking nutrients, boosts immune system function, increase energy and helps to enhance skin health.
Unlike a traditional sauna, infrared saunas don’t heat the surrounding air. Instead, they use infrared lamps (that use electromagnetic radiation) to warm your body directly. Because the infrared lamps heat the body from within, they are able to penetrate deeper into the skin. This means that the body is able to release even more toxins than a traditional sauna. Along with this, the client will experience a dryer heating session, making it more enjoyable!
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a substance that’s thought to promote healing when injected. Plasma is a component of your blood that contains special “factors,” or proteins, that help your blood to clot. It also contains proteins that support cell growth. Researchers have produced PRP by isolating plasma from blood and concentrating it.
