Is peptide therapy right for you?
What can Peptide Therapy potentially help with? Peptides may be used to increase the output of growth hormone and in treating conditions such as obesity, osteoporosis, loss of muscle mass and various inflammatory conditions including chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and autoimmune diseases. Certain peptides are being used specifically for neurocognitive improvement, especially after traumatic brain injury and stroke, and for anxiety and PTSD. There are peptides that can cause an increase in melanin which darkens the skin and mimics a sun tan, and others that can improve sex drive and erectile function.
Peptide therapy uses short pieces of proteins, or chains of amino acids, to facilitate healing and tissue rejuvenation. Over 7,000 naturally-occurring peptides have been identified in our bodies. They typically act as messengers that communicate with your cells and other molecules directing them in what to do.
Peptide therapy is a newly emerging science, with far-reaching health and rejuvenation actions for our physical and mental function. The targeted use of peptides has the potential to optimize cell chemistry and gene expression to restore health and homeostasis. Peptides can be used in the treatment of injuries, help prevent aging/illness, and enhance performance.
Peptide therapy is highly specific, well-tolerated and safe. There are now well over 80 US FDA-approved peptide medications, with many more being evaluated in clinical trials, and hundreds more in pre-clinical development. Most peptide therapies are administered via injection, but they can also come as topical creams, nasal sprays, and oral tablets/capsules. The form used is dependent on what is being treated.
