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.
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.
Take a new look at your body. If it isn’t 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.
Take a new look at losing fat using peptide therapies that activate degradation and fat burning (oxidation), and mimic the way natural growth hormone regulates fat metabolism.
Take a new look at sexual desire and health. Low sexual desire in women and ED in men. Our programs include testosterone and PT 141.
Take a new look at injury recovery, tear and tissue repair. Our programs include BPC157, known for accelerating healing and decreasing pain in many wounds and damaged areas.
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. Take a new look at how you can benefit from feeling and looking better!
May people suffer from stomach/gut symptoms including bloating, gas, cramps, food sensitivities, and aches and pains. Take a new look at how BPC157 is treating leaky gut, IBS and other GI related issues.
The most common nutritional deficiencies are vitamins D and B12, iron, calcium, vitamins C,E, and A, fiber, and potassium. Take a new look at how our nutritional blends can help you absorb nutrients, increase energy and strengthen your immune system.
Take a new look at combatting motivation and push past your previous size or increase lean muscle mass. Ipamorelin and other peptide programs can be the missing link.
Key Peptides That Can Help With:
Optimizing Your Health
Our natural GH levels are at their peak when we are 20 years old, then it begins to consistently decline, so by the age of 40, most individual’s GH levels are 40% lower than they were at age 20. Unless it is naturally optimized, it will continue to decline, bringing all the signs and symptoms of aging along with it. Our patients who use growth hormone peptide therapy in conjunction with testosterone replacement therapy have experienced incredible results.
