Peptide Therapy Q & A

peptide Therapy

What are peptides?

Peptides are small proteins. Peptides and proteins consist of amino acids, but proteins are long chains of more than 50 amino acids, while peptides have fewer than 50.

Your body naturally produces peptides that interact with cells and activate a vast range of essential activities in your body. For example, peptides can prevent blood clots, lower cholesterol, reduce systemic inflammation, and strengthen your immune system.

What is peptide therapy?

Peptide therapy refers to utilizing certain peptides to treat a specific problem in your body. The usual form of peptide administration is injection, as this provides a precise dose into your bloodstream. However, peptide therapy is also available in the form of oral capsules, topical lotions or creams, and nasal sprays.

Peptides produce results on average from a few weeks to a few months.

What conditions benefit from peptide therapy?

Ageless Regenerative Medical offers customized peptide treatments that target many health concerns and lead to a wide range of results:

Brain health peptides

Brain health peptides improve cognitive function, including learning, memory, and mental alertness. They also help to repair damaged neurons and boost neuroplasticity, which improves nerve connections.

A few conditions that benefit from brain health peptides include:

  • Stroke
  • Dementia
  • Memory loss
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Brain fog
  • Stress, anxiety, and sleep
  • Concussions and/ or traumatic brain injuries

Brain peptides also promote your recovery from concussions and traumatic brain injuries.

Muscle regeneration peptides

These peptides reduce inflammation and stimulate the repair of damaged soft tissues such as tendons, ligaments, and muscles. They benefit people with conditions such as:

  • Sports and traumatic injuries
  • Muscle loss following a chemical burn
  • Spinal muscular atrophy (loss of muscle due to damaged nerves)
  • Carnitine deficiency (causes muscle weakness)
  • Hyperthyroid myopathy (muscle weakness due to overactive thyroid)
  • Myasthenia gravis (muscle weakness caused by an autoimmune disease)
  • Sarcopenia (refers to the loss of muscle that occurs as you get older)

Sarcopenia refers to the loss of muscle that occurs as you get older.

Weight loss peptides

Peptides can promote fat burning and reduce body fat. They also increase your muscle mass, energy, and stamina while losing weight and help you recover faster after workouts.

Insomnia peptides

These peptides boost melatonin production, which in turn regulates your sleep/wake cycle and helps you fall asleep faster. Insomnia peptides can increase the length of time you sleep and promote a deeper, more restorative sleep.

Pain peptides

Pain peptides may alleviate pain from a variety of sources, including damaged nerves, injuries, and muscle soreness. They work by suppressing chronic inflammation, accelerating healing, and promoting the growth of new blood vessels.

Anxiety and mood disorder peptides

Some peptides improve anxiety and mood disorders by restoring protein synthesis in the brain, normalizing neurotransmitters, balancing brain function, and controlling cortisol, the hormone responsible for anxiety.

Immunity peptides

Ageless Regenerative Medical offers different combinations of peptides that strengthen your immune system and help your body fight conditions such as:

  • Hepatitis B and C
  • Chronic inflammatory conditions
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Lyme disease
  • Age-related immune suppression
  • Some cancers (non-small cell lung cancer, hepatocellular cancer, and malignant melanomas)

Peptides can also improve your body’s response to a vaccination. This makes them a great supplemental therapy to the flu vaccine.

How do peptides slow down aging?

Collagen-like peptides applied to your skin can do an exceptional job of smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles and reducing age spots. When used internally, peptides improve your immune system and reduce the breakdown of fats your cells need to function.

Peptides also have an anti-aging effect as they lengthen telomeres and slow down cell death. Each piece of DNA has cap-like structures covering the ends of the DNA’s strands. This structure, called a telomere, shortens every time a cell duplicates using DNA.

As telomeres shorten, cells age and stop working properly. This is the cellular basis of aging, a process that peptides can slow down.
