Peptide therapies have a variety of applications, such as immune enhancement, accelerating injury repair to muscles, reversing sarcopenia (loss of muscle), addressing progressive fat loss, improving bone mineral density, increasing Testosterone by increasing pulse size and frequency, decreasing inflammation in the brain and the rest of the body, natural release of growth hormone, and improving sleep. It’s easiest to think about peptides in these easy to remember ways. Here is how:
Peptides are chains of amino acids. Peptides can assist with weight loss by stimulating the breakdown of visceral fat. They are also used to reduce inflammation and increase muscle mass. Peptides can help with immune system, pain, and nerve issues. Peptides are typically administered through the skin as a subcutaneous injection or orally.
Its primary function is to stimulate the production of T cells, which are an important part of the immune system. Thymosin also assists in the development of B cells to plasma cells to produce antibodies. The predominant form of Thymosin, Thymosin Beta 4, is a member of a highly conserved family of actin monomer-sequestering proteins. In addition to its role as a major actin-sequestering molecule, Thymosin Beta 4 can help to restore immune function and tissue repair. Tβ4 has been found to play an important role in the protection, regeneration and remodeling of injured or damaged tissues. The gene for Tβ4 has also been found to be one of the first to be upregulated after injuries.
This peptide has been known to exhibit analgesic characteristics. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle pain and tendon damage may benefit from this peptide. BP-157 has been shown to protect organs and aid in the prevention of gastric ulcers. It acts systemically in the digestive tract to combat leaky gut, IBS, gastrointestinal cramps, and Crohn's disease. It may accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon to bone healing, and superior healing of damaged ligaments.
CJC 1295 stimulates growth hormone secretion and will keep a steady increase of HGH and IGF-1 with no increase in prolactin, leading to fat loss, and increased protein synthesis, thereby promoting growth. Benefits are the same as Sermorelin/Ipamorelin below.
Ipamorelin is a simple peptide made up of a chain of 5 amino acids. It’s formally what is known as a growth hormone secretagogue – a compound that is not a growth hormone itself, but promotes and triggers the production of growth hormone in the human pituitary. Benefits include:
A peptide that may help to treat sexual dysfunction in men (erectile dysfunction) and women. It works on the nervous system to increase sexual desire. May be effective in men who do not respond to ED meds.
Melanotan II is a synthetic hormone that speeds up the production of melanin to increase skin pigmentation and give the body a tan. It plays a role in stimulating melanogenesis and thus provides a protective mechanism against UV rays since, under its actions, melanocytes can increase production and secretion of the hormone melanin.
