Peptide and Hormone Replacement Therapy for health optimization and wellness.
Peptide Practices of America’s network of expert physicians provide you with integrative medical options. Areas include: weight loss, age management, hormone and libido improvement as well as preventative wellness for improved sleep, nutrition, diet, inflammation reduction, injury repair and over all lifestyle modification.
At some point in life, as we age, we are faced with frustration due to aging skin, wrinkles, sore and achy muscles and joints, more frequent injuries and decrease in sound sleep, memory and muscle mass. For those of us no longer in our 20’s, our growth hormone (GH) as well as other hormones, start to decline. In fact, our growth hormone declines up to 35% in our 30’s, 60% in our 40’s and 80% in our 60’s. This decrease produces a variety of age related signs and symptoms, many of which, peptides can help with.
Peptides are short chains of amino acids, linked together to provide information to instruct the body to turn on various cellular processes. Certain amino acids are liable for the production of certain hormones and proteins that help our body to function at its finest. Did you know that peptides play a major role in how your body responds to diet and exercise? If your body isn’t producing enough peptides or essential amino acids, it will not perform at an optimal level. All peptides will have some effect on the cells of the body and different peptides influence different types of cells.
What does this mean for you? Well, since our bodies recognize peptides, with certain bonds associated with peptide bonding, we can keep those peptides’ half lives longer in the bloodstream to do what we want them to do. In fact, since the body is already accustomed to these peptides, they are synthesized, naturally causing less strain. Consider how your body processes naturally occurring peptides, like insulin and endorphins. Peptide therapy is not introducing the body to anything foreign, which is what makes this type of therapy so scientifically sound, well tolerated and safe. As of January 2015, there were over 60 US FDA-approved peptide medications, 140 peptide drugs being evaluated in clinical trials in pre-clinical development.
Most peptide medications are administered subcutaneously but can also come in the form of transdermal creams, nasal sprays, and oral tablets.
The Possible Benefits of Peptide Therapy include:
- Can increase levels of energy, strength and endurance
- Can increase natural HGH (growth hormone) and IGF-1
- Can accelerate healing from wounds, surgery and tear/tissue injuries
- Can increase the development of lean muscle mass
- Can improve work outs and lessen recovery time
- Can reduce body fat through lipolysis
- Can strengthen the immune system
- Can improve regulation of other hormones
- Can increase libido and sexual arousal in both men and women
- Can promote fat loss and lower cortisol levels
- Can increase levels of concentration and memory retention
- Can increase and help maintain muscle and definition
Our growing network offers patients a multitude of options following a consultation with a medical doctor, health history, blood work and discussion to determine and supervise your therapies along the way to achieving health goals.
All patients always work directly with one of our licensed physicians to ensure patient safety and confidentiality.
If your body it is not producing enough peptides, or essential amino acids, it will not perform at an optimal level.Peptides are highly specific (i.e. they only do what you want them to do) while also being well-tolerated and safe.
Weight Loss Peptides
Some peptides induce lipolysis, or the breakdown of fat cells. Others can enable the body to burn more fat and calories in a shorter amount of time. Some can even inhibit the formation of fat in the body.
Gut Health Peptides
Many people suffer from stomach/gut symptoms including bloating, gas, cramps, food sensitivities, and aches and pains. Microorganisms that live in the digestive tract that are out of balance and the overall health of the gut can also lead to other GI related issues including leaky gut and IBS.
Growth Hormone Peptides
Peptides known as growth hormone releasing peptides or HGH peptides, interact with the hypothalamus and pituitary gland to naturally increase growth hormone levels in the body. These peptides encourage the secretion of HGH, signaling the body to use its own innate mechanisms and release its naturally occurring growth hormone.
Male sexual arousal is a complex process that involves the brain, hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Women’s sexual desires naturally fluctuate over the years due to pregnancy, menopause, illness, stress and even medications. Peptides, and primarily PT-141 helps both men and women re-kindle their desires and libido.
Strength & Endurance Peptides
For healthy athletic and gym enthusiasts, peptides have become a popular alternative to anabolic steroids and protein OTC supplements. Peptides can help boost athletic performance, push you past your previous size or increase lean muscle mass.
Pain, Recovery & Repair Peptides
Pain is a prevalent complex medical problem, often characterized by physically debilitating and mentally destabilizing conditions. Peptides can be powerful agents for managing and eliminating pain, especially as an alternative to unwanted side effects and the escalating issues of drug addiction and abuse. Other peptides are alsoknown for treating discomfort due to muscle strains, achy joints, tears, pre and post surgical pain and accelerated healing as well as wounds or other damaged areas.
Immune System Support Peptides
The benefits of peptides in areas like immune system function have been widely known for many years. Peptides can play a vital role when it comes to building immunity and strengthening the immune system’s response by blocking foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses before they compromise the system.
Biologically, it’s impossible to prevent aging, but there are ways to slow the process and improve areas of concern when addressing it on a cellular level. One of the key uses for peptide therapy is for optimizing health and longevity! Symptoms such as poor sleep, elevated cholesterol, sluggish metabolism, loss of lean muscle mass, reduced bone density, weight gain and low libido are just some of the areas that can be lessened and possiblyreversed with peptide therapy.
Hair & Skin Peptides
Peptides used for anti-aging can tighten loose skin by improving elasticity, density and firmness, reducing wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Peptides serve as the building blocks for not only for new collagen, but also elastin fibers, resulting in more youthful skin and hair re-growth. Our bodies lose 1% of our remaining collagen per year after the age of 30. Peptides act as a biologic messenger that signals our body to produce more collagen where and when we need it most.
Mood, Sleep & Cognition Peptides
Cognitive dysfunction can be a major debilitating age-related disorder. Peptides can help to induce sleep naturally, lessen long-term inflammation, reduce symptoms of brain fog, fatigue, anxiety, and depression. The potential neuro-protective and brain health benefits include the prevention of cognitive impairment and dementia, sleep disorders and overall mood.
The most common nutritional deficiencies are vitamins D and B12, iron, calcium, vitamins C, E, and A, fiber, and potassium. You can increase your energy, weight loss, immune defense, liver function and overall health and wellness with customized nutritional vitamin shots.

Individual results vary. Best results are promoted by a conscious effort to 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.
