Peptide Therapies

Peptide therapies have a variety of applications such as: immune enhancement; accelerates injury repair to muscles, tendons, bones, nerves; progressive fat loss and improved bone mineral density, increase in Testosterone by increasing pulse size and frequency, decrease inflammation in the brain and the rest of the body, natural release of growth hormone, improves sleep.

Peptides, as signaling substances, help reclaim efficiency of hormone receptor sites. In other words, it you give a patient some T3 (active thyroid hormone), and you don't see improvement in the labs, it may be that the receptor site is not working properly. Peptides and certain other nutrients can help improved the functionality of the receptor so that the hormones we give work as intended. Importantly, peptide therapy works best in the background of great nutrition, cortisol balance, and removal of environmental toxins.

Fundamentally, peptide therapies give cells the ability to handle stress better. You can get started and just use a GHRP (like Ipamorelin) by itself without spending a lot of money to see if your sleep improves, and bone densisty improves. A GHRP together with bio-identical hormones, and gets great results.

Ipamorelin (Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide, GHRP): anti-depressant, anti-anxiety, protective of stress, potentially neurologically protective.

BPC-157 (Body Protection Compound-157) by itself does nothing. It has no side effects, no toxicity, and no drug interactions. It is a powerful cell signaling messenger that decreases inflammation, and accelerate healing (muscle, brain, bone, tendon, nerve, ligament, cornea, intestines, as examples). It increases fat loss, improved immune function, well being, and bone mineral density. Some patients claim that their chronic pain has been substantially reduced. BPC-157 can help you heal faster from injury to bone, muscle, ligament, tendon, nerve, brain, teeth, intestine, cornea via cell signalling. This peptide responds specific to injury.

Deep (or Delta) Sleep Inducing Peptide (DSIP): This peptide not only helps regulate sleep by way of improving the circadian function of sleep (mostly stage 4, slow wave sleep, when growth hormone is released) and decreasing wake ups throughout the night. It is not a sedative drug. It is also neuroprotective (prevents neuronal death) prevents excitotoxicity, and increases glutathione peroxidase and Superoxide dismutase (SOD) in the brain which increases oxidative phosphorylation in the brain, and hense, improves mitochondrial functiona and LH release which can boost Testosterone levels by 100-200 points. There are no significant side effects from treatment. Oxidative stress in the brain causes age-associated decrease in Testosterone. DSIP improves this process in the brain, where it can also help lower feelings of stress by lowering ACTH. This peptide has also been shown to decrease alcohol and opioid withdrawal (and decreases chronic pain). It has a growth hormone releasing response in a physiologic way.

GHK-Cu (GHK-copper): modulates copper into cells. Can accelerate change from inflammation to a healing phase via decreasing TNF alpha and beta, and decreasing IL-6. It increases SOD (copper and zinc dependent) and that leads to a decrease in Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). Decreases ulcers and infections. Decreases fibrinogen and metastasis of cancer. Increases myelin and cell regeneration and increase nerve density. Plays a role in cosmesis and also has been shown to boost self confidence.

IgF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor 1) : Also know as Somatomedin C. It's very similar to insulin. In the brain, it plays a role in neural development and myelination. It is anti-inflammatory. In the heart, it has vasodilatory effects. In muscle, plays a role in muscle development and helps rebuild muscle in a more efficient way. It mediates the effects of Human Growth Hormone. It improves muscle, bone and cartilage tissue. It helps improve connective tissue healing. It plays a role in adipocyte differentiation and regulation. It improves anti-oxidant defense system. Utility: Conditions needing soft tissue enhancement- muscle, tendon, ligament repair from sports injuries. Looks for specific results over short periods of time. It doesn't stop the amount of scar tissue made, however (use with TB-4, which decreases scarring). Useful for Diabetes I and Insulin resistance. It improves insulin sensitivity. Useful for weight loss and metabolic syndrome. Improves bone density. Decreases neural-inflammation. Low level are associated with CV events, and increased mortality rate. It can play a role in those susceptible to cancer so use for short term, specific uses. High levels are associated with cancer risks (breast -premenopausal-, prostate, colorectal). We are trying to use it in physiological levels only for best results.

Kisspeptin 10: Developed in Hershey, PA. (home of the Hershey kiss). This peptide increases Testosterone for men with primary hypogonadism and men who lose Testosterone from the aging process. This peptide works by increasing the pulse frequency and pulse size of LH. Testosterone levels may rise 100-250 points. Kisspeptin 10 has also been shown to be better than HCG for increasing testicular size. There is no feedback inhibition. There is physiologic Growth Hormone release, too.

LL-37: is a Cathelicidin and is involved with our innate immune system of defense against bacterial invasion, antiviral and antifungal activity on mucous membranes, increases epithelial stiffness and decreases permeability to bacterial invasion; can improve treatment of Cystic Fibrosis. Also improve treatment for Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) and Influenza A via damaging viral envelope and disruption of viral particles. Has antifibrotic effects and inhibits pro-inflammatory responses of NF kappa beta from LPS (via decrease TNF alpha, and IL-6). Interestingly, it decreases gut permeability via impoved tight junctions (claudin, occludins). Can help protect against pathogen mediated intestinal inflammation. Powerful anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory. Useful in Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis. In the Diabetic gut, it improves tight junctions and microflora. With C. difficile, it can decrease inflammation (IL-6).

Melanotan II: a melanocortin. It works through the CNS where it causes tanning and naturally makes a woman and a man sexually arroused.

Thymosin alpha-1 improves your immune system by boosting Natural Killer cells. If you get sore throats and colds multiple times each year, this peptide can help you.

We offer BPC-157, Growth Hormone Releasing Hormones (GHRH's), Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides (GHRP's), Thymosin alpha 1, Melanotan II, and more.

Peptide therapy plus Bio-Identical hormones - Synergy. Peptides help reclaim the efficiency of receptor sites so they work better (and you won't need as much hormone to get the effects you seek).

Lifestyle & Supplement support for Peptide Therapies: (from lectures by Dr. Seeds and by Dr. LaValle)

No smoking or forget doing peptides.

Adequate sleep.

Only PROTEIN within 30 minutes of taking injections. No fat, or carbs.

Do periodic fasts.

Excerise for best peptide therapy results. Also, 1 hour before work outs, supplements like Phosphatidic acid (works through mTOR signaling) and within 1 hour after workouts (branched-chained amino acids, especially with high levels of the amino acid LEUCINE) for best exercise or stretching results. During workouts, supplement in OJ with L-glutamine, D-Ribose). The longer the MTOR signalling the longer the net protein synthesis you create. (Ornithine ketoglutarate also works though mTOR signalling).

Creatine: drives tissue anabolism. Great for older people who lack muscle mass.

Arginine: helps make growth hormone (take with Vitamin C) by suppressing somatostatin secretion. Do not take with exercise. You will not make additional growth hormone.

Glutamine: supports GI mucosal integrity, cellular repair and healing. Supports growth hormone levels.

Alpha-GPC: taken 90 minutes before work outs shown to increase growth hormone levels substantially. How? it increases acetylcholine. Acetylcholine increases the signal release of growth hormone.
