What are peptides?

A NATURAL, RESTORATIVE APPROACH

Peptides are tiny chains of amino acids. They occur naturally in the body and are present in every living cell. When linked together, they initiate many different cellular processes. Specific amino acids stimulate the production of particular hormones and proteins. If your body is no longer making enough of its own peptides, it will no longer be able to function at optimal levels.

Peptides have actually been used in medicine for decades! Insulin is a peptide and has been available for nearly 100 years! Because your body already has receptors for peptides and produced them at higher levels when you were younger or healthier, their use should not be considered “foreign” or even “medicinal.” Peptide Therapy merely revives optimal peptide levels to where they were when we were at our peak!

PEPTIDES WE DELIVER

5-Amino-1MQ

New research has found that an enzyme called nicotinamide-N-methyltransferase (NNMT) has an important role in how our cells use energy. When NNMT levels are high, it can make it harder for the body to burn fat cells and lose weight. This can lead to a cycle where weight gain increases NNMT levels, making it even harder to lose weight.

Additional Reading

However, scientists have discovered a powerful inhibitor called 5-Amino-1MQ that can reduce the effects of NNMT. In studies, this inhibitor has been shown to help decrease body weight, the size of fat cells, and cholesterol levels. This suggests that scientists could develop new treatments using NNMT inhibitors to reverse diet-induced obesity and related health conditions.

Overall, NNMT inhibitors have the potential to help reduce the size and number of fat cells, increase the body's ability to burn fat, and lower cholesterol levels.

AOD-9604

Scientists at Monash University have developed AOD 9604, which is derived from a specific part (amino acids 176-191) of the Growth Hormone (GH) polypeptide. This region controls the fat-reducing effects of GH without impacting growth or insulin resistance. AOD 9604 functions by mimicking the natural regulation of fat metabolism by GH. This stimulation of lipolysis and inhibition of lipogenesis reduces body fat, similar to GH, but without adverse effects on blood sugar and growth. AOD 9604 triggers the release of fat in the body.

BPC-157

BPC-157 is a peptide made up of 15 amino acids isolated from human gastric juice. It contains a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) and has been shown to promote the healing of various wounds, including tendons, ligaments, and skin burns. BPC-157 is also believed to protect organs and prevent stomach ulcers. It can reduce pain in damaged areas and increase blood flow to injured tissues, making it a promising treatment option for those who suffer from muscle sprains, tears, and damage.

Additional Reading

In addition to its healing properties, BPC-157 has been shown to decrease inflammation, enhance collagen synthesis, and speed up recovery times post-injury for tendons and ligaments. It can also protect the heart, aid with intestinal issues, and reverse opioid tolerance.

CJC/Ipamorelin

CJC1295/Ipamorelin is a combination of two peptides, which include a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) and a growth hormone-releasing peptide (GHRP). The peptides work together to stimulate the release of growth hormone and promote protein synthesis, helping to increase muscle growth. CJC 1295 was initially developed to treat medical conditions and diseases in patients with muscle disorders or burn victims.

Additional Reading

The combination of CJC1295 and Ipamorelin is used to increase GH release levels and enhance the natural functions of the pituitary gland. This supplement can aid in improving sleep quality, and cognitive function, reducing body fat, increasing muscle mass and strength, and promoting faster recovery times after injuries. As the body naturally produces less GH as a person ages, supplements like Ipamorelin can help increase GH levels to counteract this natural decrease.

Dihexa

Neurodegenerative diseases are a group of illnesses that cause the loss of specific brain cells, which can lead to problems with thinking, movement, and senses. Diseases like Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and Huntington's are examples of these conditions. These diseases can cause a lot of harm to patients, their loved ones, and their self-esteem.

Additional Reading

A new way of treating these diseases involves making new connections between brain cells, replacing damaged cells, improving blood flow, and protecting the brain. Dihexa is a tiny molecule that can improve memory and brain function, and it can enter the brain. It may be able to help people with these diseases.

Dihexa was made from a molecule called Nle1-angiotensin IV. It can help create new brain connections and improve memory. Dihexa can be taken by mouth, it is stable in the body, and it can enter the brain. It can help people with these diseases to focus and learn better, and it can also improve their mental energy.

The angiotensin IV/AT4 receptor system and the HGF/c-Met receptor system are involved in learning, memory, and movement. Dihexa attaches to the HGF receptor and helps it connect to c-Met receptors, which can improve brain connections. The HGF/c-Met system has been shown to help the brain recover from damage, suggesting that Dihexa could help people with these diseases.

Epitalon

Epitalon is a substance that can play an important role in combating aging, particularly in individuals aged 40 and above. Its beneficial effects against aging are due to its ability to influence the brain and pineal gland, as well as to increase the length of telomeres through its action as a telomerase activator. Telomeres, which are structures found at the end of chromosomes, can be affected by various lifestyle factors and have been linked to the pace of aging and the onset of age-related diseases.

Additional Reading

As people age, telomere length tends to shorten, and this process can lead to the deterioration of cells and tissues, affecting an individual's health and lifespan. Shorter telomeres have been associated with increased risk of disease and reduced survival. The rate of telomere shortening can be influenced by specific lifestyle factors, such as diet and physical activity. Making better choices in these areas can slow down or prevent excessive telomere attrition, thus delaying the onset of age-related diseases and extending lifespan.

GHK-Cu

GHK-Cu is a compound that has been found to have numerous benefits, but its levels decrease as one gets older. It has been shown to improve the healing of wounds and regeneration of various tissues in the body, including the skin, hair follicles, stomach and intestinal linings, and boney tissue. Additionally, GHK-Cu has been found to increase collagen and glycosaminoglycans, stimulate the synthesis of decorin, promote angiogenesis and nerve outgrowth, have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, and increase the production of trophic factors by mesenchymal stem cells, which play a critical role in the repair and maintenance of various tissues in the body.

Glutathione

Glutathione is a type of antioxidant that helps to protect cells by getting rid of toxins and free radicals in the body. It is made up of three amino acids: glutamine, glycine, and cysteine. Unfortunately, as you get older or if you're exposed to toxins, your levels of glutathione can decrease.

Additional Reading

By taking glutathione injections, you may experience the following benefits:

  • Reduced oxidative stress
  • Improved insulin resistance
  • Help with uncontrolled diabetes
  • Improved skin brightness and tone
  • Fewer symptoms of Parkinson's disease
  • Potential for fighting autoimmune diseases
  • Possible improvement of psoriasis symptoms
  • Removal of toxins and free radicals from the body
  • Possible reduction in respiratory disease symptoms
  • Less damage to cells for those with fatty liver disease
  • Increased mobility for those with peripheral artery disease

Melanotan-2

Melanotan II (MT2) is a type of peptide that can trigger skin tanning by stimulating melanocytes, which are skin pigment cells that produce and release melanin. Melanin is responsible for the darkening of the skin and hair. This peptide can offer several benefits, including a darker tan with less exposure to UV radiation, tanning without sunburn even for those with fair skin, and a possible reduction in the risk of skin cancer and sun-damaged skin. Additionally, it may potentially reduce body fat, and there is no risk of sunburn or tan lines, as well as sunless tanning streaks or fake tan removal. It also has libido-increasing effects.

MK-677

MK-677, also known as ibutamoren, is a compound that can stimulate the secretion of growth hormone (GH) and increase insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). Ibutamoren mimics the action of ghrelin, a hormone that binds to ghrelin receptors (GHSR) in the brain to stimulate growth hormone release.

Additional Reading

Clinical studies have shown that ibutamoren affects appetite in a way similar to ghrelin by activating GHSR, which is found in brain regions responsible for appetite control, pleasure, mood, biological rhythms, memory, and cognition. This suggests that ibutamoren may also affect these functions.

One of the benefits of ibutamoren is that it increases growth hormone levels with little or no increase in other hormones, such as cortisol. Cortisol can have negative effects on the immune system, wound healing, learning, and memory.

Ibutamoren has been shown to help build muscle, reduce muscle wasting, increase bone density, improve sleep, combat aging, and potentially have nootropic effects. It is also beneficial in treating growth hormone deficiency.

MOTS-C

MOTS-C is a peptide with 16 amino acids that is classified as a short open reading frame (sORF). It exerts endocrine-like effects on the metabolism of muscles, weight regulation, and insulin sensitivity. Specifically, it targets the skeletal muscle as its primary organ and inhibits the folate cycle at the cellular level. MOTS-C activates AMPK and increases AICAR levels, which enhances glucose uptake and stimulates fatty acid oxidation in muscles.

Additional Reading

Its role in activating AMPK and enhancing glucose metabolism makes it a promising candidate for regulating obesity, diabetes, exercise, and longevity. The peptide is a novel mitochondrial signaling mechanism that regulates metabolism between and within cells, coordinating cellular glucose, mitochondrial, and fatty acid metabolism. MOTS-C increases energy expenditure and heat production, improves glucose utilization and insulin sensitivity, and reduces fat accumulation, possibly through robust carbohydrate usage that decreases fatty acid synthesis.

Overall, MOTS-C regulates insulin sensitivity and metabolism, stimulates fatty acid oxidation, enhances glucose uptake and utilization, and coordinates cellular glucose, mitochondrial, and fatty acid metabolism, making it an important peptide for metabolic regulation.

NAD+

NAD+ is a molecule that regulates the body's response to stress and is involved in over 500 enzymatic reactions that control many essential biological processes. NAD+ boosters are molecules that can raise NAD+ levels and show great promise for treating various diseases and potentially extending lifespan.

Additional Reading

A decline in NAD+ during aging is believed to cause several problems, including hearing and vision loss, cognitive and motor dysfunction, and autoimmune diseases. NAD+ boosters have been shown to prevent or treat a range of diseases and conditions and could even be used to treat aging itself.

NAD+ boosters have been shown to improve the function of the liver, kidneys, and skeletal muscles, as well as the heart, nerves, and blood vessels. They can also repair damaged DNA and may have the potential to treat cancer. Additionally, NAD+ boosters can enhance the immune system and reduce inflammation.

Oxytocin

Oxytocin, also known as the "love hormone," is a powerful neurotransmitter in the brain that has been shown to play a significant role in various human behaviors, such as recognition, sexual arousal, and trust. Research has suggested that Oxytocin is an essential hormone in social action and has emerged as a potent modulator of diverse aspects of interpersonal relationships. It works closely with other neurotransmitter networks, including the dopaminergic reward circuit, and is influenced by sex-specific hormones. Additionally, Oxytocin has been found to induce anti-stress effects, reduce blood pressure and cortisol levels, increase pain thresholds, and stimulate positive social interaction. Furthermore, studies have found that Oxytocin levels are positively correlated with the intensity of orgasm in both men and women.

PT-141

This medication is used to treat premenopausal women with hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD), which is defined by a persistent lack of interest in sex, causing stress. Bremelanotide acts on receptors for a brain-stimulating hormone called melanocortin, which is associated with sexual arousal and appetite in both men and women. Unlike Viagra and related medications, it does not act upon the vascular system but directly increases sexual desire via the nervous system.

Additional Reading

  • Increase sexual frequency
  • Boost sex drive
  • Raise sexual desire
  • Increase female sexual function index total score
  • Female sexual distress scale-desire/arousal/orgasm total score
  • Treatment for men and women with hypoactive sexual desire disorder

Selank

Selank is a synthetic regulatory peptide with potent anxiolytic properties that can alleviate anxiety, aggression, and fear, acting as a stable neuropsychotropic, antidepressant, and antistress drug. It is also a nootropic compound that can positively affect memory and learning processes. Selank acts through allosteric modulation of GABA receptors, similar to benzodiazepines, which can enhance the GABA effect by increasing the opening of channels for chlorine ions. However, unlike benzodiazepines, Selank does not produce unwanted side effects such as dependence, withdrawal, and amnesia. Clinical studies have confirmed the efficacy of Selank in treating generalized anxiety disorders and protecting neurons against damage.

Additional Reading

  • Anxiolytic
  • Neuropsychotropic
  • Antidepressant
  • Antistress
  • Enhances memory and learning
  • Allosteric modulation of GABA receptors
  • No unwanted side effects
  • Effective in treating generalized anxiety disorders and neuroprotection

Semax

Semax is a peptide that possesses neuroprotective, neurogenic/neurorestorative, and nootropic properties. It was created by taking inspiration from the molecular structure of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). Based on preliminary research using cells, animal models, and small-scale human trials, Semax has been found to offer several benefits and uses.

Additional Reading

Semax serves as the foundation for several drugs used globally to treat CNS diseases such as ischemic brain stroke, dys-circulatory encephalopathy, and optic nerve atrophy, among other conditions. Furthermore, it is used to enhance adaptability under extreme conditions in healthy individuals. The cognitive-enhancing (nootropic) effects of Semax may be helpful in treating ADHD, and it may also offer neuroprotection by safeguarding the brain from various forms of stress and damage.

Semax has been shown to provide the following benefits:

  • Improved attention and short-term memory
  • Relief for non-proliferative diabetic neuropathy
  • Support during stroke/hypoxia recovery
  • Improved glaucoma optic neuropathy
  • Possible analgesic effects by inhibiting Enkephalin breakdown

SS-31

The mitochondria are crucial for cellular metabolism, and mitochondrial dysfunction has been implicated in many different diseases. One compound that has shown promise in reversing mitochondrial dysfunction is SS-31. By neutralizing harmful inflammatory agents like free radical oxygen species, SS-31 can help to restore proper mitochondrial function.

Additional Reading

What sets SS-31 apart is its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and accumulate within the inner membrane of the mitochondria. This makes it a promising treatment for various neurodegenerative and cognitive disorders such as ALS, Alzheimer’s, Friedreich ataxia, and glaucoma.

Research on SS-31 is also exploring its potential as an anti-aging therapy, as it can help reverse mitochondrial dysfunction and prevent premature cell death. Since mitochondrial dysfunction and free radical damage are thought to be key drivers of the aging process, SS-31's intracellular benefits could be valuable in combating aging-related diseases.

Some of the conditions that SS-31 is being studied for include ALS, Alzheimer's disease, glaucoma, diabetes, skeletal muscle weakness, traumatic brain injury, atherosclerosis, heart failure with ischemia-reperfusion, and kidney fibrosis.

Synapsin

Synapsin is a combo of two products, RG3 and Nicotinamide Ribose. Scientists are considering the importance of inflammation and apoptosis in neurodegenerative conditions. The potential suppressive effects of RG3, a by-product obtained during the steaming of red ginseng, indicate that RG3 could provide a beneficial therapeutic approach to treating or preventing neurodegenerative disease. NAD+ enzymes are involved in synaptic plasticity and neuronal stress resistance. Emerging findings reveal the critical roles of NAD+ and related metabolites in adapting neurons to a wide range of physiological stressors, including counteracting neurodegenerative diseases, such as those occurring in Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Huntington's diseases, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Additional Reading

  • Memory improvement
  • Decrease brain toxicity and inflammation
  • Support of neurological and cognitive health
  • Mental acuity enhancement
  • Brain cellular energy production
  • TBI
  • Stroke
  • Post-concussion syndrome

TB-500

TB-500 is a synthetic derivative of thymosin beta-4, a protein made up of 43 amino acids. This peptide is primarily used for its healing properties, which have been observed in various parts of the body, including tendons, ligaments, muscles, skin, heart, and eyes.

Additional Reading

TB-500 works by increasing the number of cells involved in the healing process and promoting their migration to the site of the injury. It has been shown to be effective in treating sports and athletic injuries, as well as promoting soft tissue repair, including tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Additionally, TB-500 may reduce the formation of scar tissue and improve the mortality rate associated with certain injuries.

Other potential benefits of TB-500 include significant repair and regenerative properties, as well as the ability to increase muscle growth, muscle tone, and muscular stamina.

Tesofensine

Tesofensine (NS2330) is a type of presynaptic serotonin–noradrenaline–dopamine reuptake inhibitor. By blocking the reuptake of these three neurotransmitters, tesofensine can help suppress appetite and lead to reduced feelings of hunger. In addition to acting as an appetite suppressant, tesofensine may also have effects on fat oxidation and resting energy expenditure. Additionally, tesofensine has been shown to modulate dopamine in a specific brain region related to the pleasure of eating.

Additional Reading

Originally developed for the treatment of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, tesofensine was found to be ineffective for these neurological conditions. However, researchers observed consistent reports of weight loss as an adverse event, particularly in overweight or obese patients. As a result, studies on tesofensine for the treatment of obesity began.

Some potential benefits of tesofensine for weight loss include a decrease in body weight and BMI, as well as improvements in waist and hip circumference. In addition, tesofensine may help reduce body fat and visceral fat, and decrease levels of very-low-density lipoprotein, triglycerides, and insulin. Furthermore, tesofensine may have the potential to reverse early type 2 diabetes.

Thymulin

Thymulin is a hormone produced by thymic epithelial cells that helps with the differentiation of T-Cells within and outside of the thymus. It was first characterized and sequenced about 20 years ago and has since been recognized as a hormone involved in regulating the immune system. The production and secretion of Thymulin are strongly influenced by the neuro-endocrine system.

Additional Reading

Thymulin is essential for the differentiation of T lymphocytes and for balancing T-helper cells and suppressor cells. It has anti-inflammatory properties, as it reduces the release of cytokines and chemokines and increases the production of anti-inflammatory factors like interleukin-10. Thymulin's effects are mediated by the regulation of transcription factors and mediators, and its activity depends on its interaction with zinc ions.

Thymulin has several beneficial effects on the immune system, including strengthening and modulating it, normalizing T-Cell balance, reducing inflammation, and promoting the production of anti-inflammatory factors like IL-10.

Tirzepatide

Tirzepatide belongs to a novel class of drugs studied for treating obesity that acts as a once-weekly agonist of GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) and GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) receptors. This single-peptide medication stimulates the body's natural incretin hormones, GIP and GLP-1, by binding to their receptors. Additionally, tirzepatide is known to improve energy levels with the help of cyanocobalamin.

Tirzepatide has been shown to have significant effects in reducing A1C levels, promoting weight loss, and improving cardiometabolic measures. Furthermore, it has been reported to reduce appetite.

PEPTIDE PROGRAMS

BILTMORE RESTORATIVE MEDICINE

At Biltmore Restorative Medicine, our peptides are uniquely created for each patient’s specific goals and needs. Below you will find information about our most popular peptides.

Fat Loss and Weight Management

It should be simple: expend more calories than consumed. Easy, right? Well, as we all know, it’s not so simple. Without enough muscle to burn calories 24 hours a day, you just can’t exercise enough to lose this weight. And without optimal peptide levels, the “system” that burns calories and fat fails to function properly.

Peptides Used: 5-Amino-1MQ, AOD-9604, CJC/Ipamorelin, Tesofensine, Tirzepatide

Cellular Repair and Healing

If you have a persistent injury that doesn't seem to be healing or feel muscle soreness after intense activity, BPC-157 could be a helpful option. This peptide is composed of 15 amino acids and is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC), which is found in human gastric juice. Research has shown that BPC-157 can accelerate the healing of various types of wounds, such as tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments. It can also protect organs and decrease pain in damaged areas, as well as help with the healing of skin burns and increase blood flow to damaged tissues.

BPC-157 has been shown to act systemically in the digestive tract to combat conditions like leaky gut, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn's disease, and prevent stomach ulcers. Those who experience discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears, and damage may also benefit from treatment with BPC-157.

Peptides Used: BPC-157, CJC/Ipamorelin, GHK-Cu, TB-500

Cognition and Memory

We provide peptides that can enhance nerve regeneration and improve neuromuscular performance. These peptides can also serve as preventative measures against chronic diseases while simultaneously boosting mental and physical performance. Furthermore, studies have suggested that these peptides may aid in the treatment of conditions such as anxiety, ADHD, and opioid withdrawal, as well as chronic diseases like ALS, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's.

Peptides Used: Dihexa, Epitalon, NAD+, Selank, Semax, SS-31

Anti-Aging Potential

Growth Hormone levels peak in our mid-twenties and then begin a sure and steady decline. If discovered today, it would be called something like “human regenerative hormone” for its amazing ability to repair and regenerate tissues. Increased levels of Growth Hormone have been thought to be one of the most effective methods to combat the effects of aging. Growth Hormone also plays an important role in “lipolysis,” the breakdown and elimination of fat within the body.

Peptides Used: CJC/Ipamorelin, Epitalon, NAD+

Improved Sleep

Do you have difficulty falling asleep or waking up feeling tired? We can help improve your sleep cycle with our treatment using Epitalon and CJC/Ipamorelin.

Epitalon stimulates the pineal gland in the brain to produce protective parts of DNA in somatic cells. It promotes natural and healthy sleep cycles while preventing elevated levels of cortisol and other stress hormones throughout the day, which can lead to excess abdominal weight gain. This peptide also regulates the levels of melatonin and cortisol, ensuring that cortisol is high in the morning and melatonin is high in the evening, resulting in deeper and longer sleep cycles.

CJC/Ipamorelin is also effective in treating sleep conditions and disorders by improving sleep patterns and enhancing mood, leading to increased energy levels during the day and easier and longer sleep at night. If you have trouble falling or staying asleep or suffer from chronic sleep conditions, incorporating CJC 1295/Ipamorelin into your dietary regimen can be beneficial.

Peptides Used: CJC/Ipamorelin, Epitalon

Healthier Skin and Hair

As you age, your body naturally loses collagen and elastin, but certain lifestyle habits like smoking and excessive sun exposure can speed up the process. Peptides can help to stimulate collagen production in your skin, which may address concerns like fine lines, enlarged pores, and age spots. Additionally, GHK-Cu, which promotes connective tissue growth, has been shown to reduce hair breakage, improve hair thickness, and promote hair growth.

By increasing melanin production, Melanotan may also provide some protection against sun damage, such as sunburn and skin cancer. It can improve the skin’s appearance, including the appearance of uneven skin tone, blemishes, and scars. Additionally, individuals may be less likely to spend extended periods in the sun to achieve a tan, thereby reducing their overall exposure to harmful UV radiation.

It is important to keep in mind that while skin care products may help restore some lost collagen and elastin, it is not currently possible for any beauty product to restore these tissues completely.

Peptides Used: GHK-Cu, Melanotan-2, Thymulin

Sexual Health and Libido

What was once a taboo subject has now been brought to the forefront online and in social media outlets. Pop-up advertisements are everywhere for sexual enhancements—once, only directed toward men—but now, women are asking, “Where’s mine?”

Some of the patients who benefit from our practice are those seeking more fulfilling sexual health. Between treatments to optimize sex hormone levels, procedures to stimulate new blood vessels and nerve tissue to the external genitalia-directed physical therapies, and Peptide Therapy that stimulate neurochemicals, we have seen tremendous improvement in an area that most people don’t realize can actually get better. By stimulating the dopamine secretion in a person, sexual desire can be directly increased.

The areas of the brain in which we stimulate sexual motivation also benefit from this energy. This peptide is considered a “neuro aphrodisiac,” and all of the effects we see with this Peptide Injection benefit men and women indiscriminately. Peptide science has gotten farther than most people realize. We can amplify, modify, and create greater intracellular signaling and function efficiency. When treatments include the right combinations of peptides, patients can benefit. This is truly Restorative Medicine.

Peptides Used: PT-141, Oxytocin

Immunity and Disease Prevention

Thymulin is a natural hormone that can make T-cells work better and help protect the body from disease. It is available in a man-made form, and it's not harmful.

In COVID-19 infections, a substance called NAD+ can help fight the virus and reduce inflammation. But some people, especially older folks and those with certain diseases like diabetes and heart problems, have lower levels of NAD+ in their bodies. When someone gets sick with COVID-19, their NAD+ levels can get even lower, which can make it harder to fight the virus.

Higher NAD+ levels in the body help prevent the immune system from overreacting and causing harm. Lower levels of NAD+ are linked to aging and some diseases, and getting sick with a virus can make it even worse.

Peptides Used: NAD+, Thymulin

Muscle Recovery and Performance Boosting

Are you looking for a way to improve your athletic performance and enhance your physical fitness? Our range of peptides may be just what you need. These peptides are designed to aid in muscle recovery and increase stamina while also offering several anti-aging benefits. By stimulating the body's natural production of growth hormone, these peptides can help you achieve greater muscle mass and strength, reduce body fat, promote better muscle recovery, and increase energy levels.

Peptides Used: CJC/Ipamorelin, MK-677, NAD+

Peptide Therapy
Frequently Asked Questions

Peptide Therapy has no significant adverse effects for otherwise healthy people. However, it is possible to develop a rash, irritation, or skin sensitivity.

Most peptides are safe to incorporate into your daily routine, and the full effects of treatment should present 3-6 months from the start of peptide therapy treatment. Some peptides do carry a risk of withdrawal symptoms should you stop taking them, but we will help you plan the best combination and dosages of peptides to reach optimal results.

How can you possibly trust your health and life to a vial of powder or liquid purchased from non-approved sources without regard to evidence of purity or potency, much less sterility? Just one injection from a contaminated product could result in sepsis, meningitis, or worse, death! While online peptides are “cheap,” you get what you pay for. These internet peptides are not regulated, so you have no way of knowing if you are even receiving a peptide. If it is a peptide, there is a high likelihood that the bonds are cheaply produced and, as a result, deteriorate rapidly or even in the shipping process. A peptide/protein’s function is 100% determined by its structure. Internet peptides tend to fall apart within days, if not minutes, making them completely inactive very quickly and, therefore, a poor investment.

Peptide Therapy is highly individualized. As a result, treatment costs will differ from patient to patient based on their goals and anticipated outcomes. Your provider will customize your treatment plan during your consultation, and our patient care coordinator will review all costs at the end of your visit.
