Peptide therapy is gaining popularity, not only because of the healing and regenerative benefits they offer, but also because they are smarter, safer, and more effective alternatives to human growth hormone replacement.
If you are 30 or older, are you starting to notice:
Weight gain, muscle loss, decreased energy levels, reduced strength and stamina, low libido or sexual dysfunction, poor sleep and aging skin?
These are all symptoms of declining human growth hormone levels.
The Power of Peptides
Since peptides are able to improve a number of very precise concerns, they offer a wide range of benefits for overall health and appearance, including:
Boosts energy, sharpens memory and cognitive focus
Builds muscle and burns fat, increasing weight loss
Enhances physical performance and improves appearance
Repairs muscles and tendons
Increases sex drive
Enhances sleep quality
What are Peptides?
Peptides naturally enhance and stimulate your body’s own production of growth hormone. They are the smarter, safer, and more effective alternatives to human growth hormone replacement.
Human growth hormone is naturally produced in the pituitary gland and plays a vital role in the growth of every cell in the human body, cell regeneration, maintaining healthy tissue throughout the body, and keeping your body functioning at peak performance.
Growth hormone is released in bursts every three to five hours by the pituitary gland.
The hypothalamus in the brain regulates the secretion of hormones from the pituitary gland.
In order for the pituitary gland to release more growth hormone, the hypothalamus must release growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH). The GHRH in turn signals the pituitary gland to release growth hormone.
Growth Hormone Peptides do not replace your body’s own growth hormone production, creating a dependence on the therapy.
Human Growth Hormone Deficiency
As we age, the pituitary gland simply does not produce as much human growth hormone, and our levels naturally decline. As our human growth hormone levels decrease, we start to notice negative effects like weight gain, muscle loss, decreased energy levels, reduced strength and stamina, low libido or sexual dysfunction, poor sleep and aging skin.
In women, human growth hormone levels start to decline in the early 20s.
In men, it is usually around age 35.
In middle age, human growth hormone levels are usually less than half of what they were in a person’s early 20s.
How long does it take anti-aging peptide therapy to work?
Peptide therapy has a “loading” period of 3-6 months before full effects are noticed. Benefits start within the first few weeks and they increase synergistically with continued therapy. Initially, injections are administered more frequently.
Once levels become optimal and the benefits are achieved, injection frequencies can be decreased and transitioning to a maintenance protocol is possible.
