Peptide Therapy – the smarter, safer, and more effective alternatives to HGH replacement.
What is human growth hormone?
Human growth hormone (HGH) is a hormone that’s naturally produced in the pituitary gland. It plays a vital role in the growth of every cell in the human body as well as cell regeneration, healthy tissue maintenance, and peak body functioning.
The 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 hormones, the hypothalamus must release the growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH). The GHRH, in turn, signals the pituitary gland to release growth hormone.
At the biostation, we use growth hormone peptides with peptide therapy to help patients achieve happier and healthier lives. Unlike traditional Human Growth Hormones and HGH therapy Growth Hormone Peptides used in peptide therapy do not replace your body’s own growth hormone production, which can create a dependence on the therapy. Instead, peptides are secretagogues that will naturally enhance and stimulate your body’s own production of HGH.
Human growth hormone deficiency
Some people lack the normal levels of HGH for one reason or another. Also as we age, the pituitary gland simply does not produce as much HGH as it used to, and our levels naturally decline. In women, HGH levels start to decline in the early 20s. In men, it is usually closer to age 35. In middle age, HGH levels are usually less than half of what they were in a person’s early 20s.
As our HGH 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. While some of this is natural, there is something you can do to combat these negative effects.
HGH activating peptide therapy
If you are feeling the effects of aging mentioned above, you may have an adult growth hormone deficiency. You should have your levels checked by a Functional Medicine expert as some of these negative effects can potentially be negated.
Along with other wellness and medical weight loss treatments, at the biostation, we can treat human growth hormone deficiency with peptide therapy, a safer option than synthetic HGH replacement therapy. Peptide treatment will include a series of injections that are used to help reverse some of the effects of aging and improve overall health.
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. The benefits of peptide therapy start within the first few weeks, and they increase synergistically with continued therapy. Initially, peptide injections are administered more frequently. Once levels become optimal and the benefits are achieved, peptide therapy injection frequencies can be decreased and transitioning to a maintenance protocol is possible.
The power of peptide therapy
Peptide does more than help with growth hormone deficiencies. They offer a wide range of benefits for overall health and appearance. Peptides can:
- Boost energy
- Build muscle
- Enhance physical performance
- Burn fat
- Increase weight loss
- Repair muscles and tendons
- Improve appearance
- Increase sex drive
- Enhance sleep quality
- Sharpen memory and cognitive focus
Peptide therapy at the biostation
At the biostation, we offer a variety of different hormone therapies and pharmaceutical grade supplements because we understand that everyone is unique and each individual might be looking for different results. Each peptide varies slightly as far as structure and mechanism of action. Thus, a certain peptide may be preferred depending on the patient’s health status and desired outcome of peptide therapy. A combination of peptides may also be recommended to achieve long-term and sustainable results. With more than 7,000 naturally-occurring peptides, the following are preferred for the ways they can help you achieve your fitness, anti-aging and wellness goals.
CJC 1295 + Ipamorelin
As one of a new and improved generation of peptides for peptide therapy, this potent combination is more effective for most people and offers more targeted action to deliver many worthwhile benefits including:
- Fight the signs of aging
- Build collagen and reduce wrinkles
- Increase fat loss and weight loss
- Accelerate healing and recovery
- Improve sleep and mood
- Enhance cognitive function
- Increase lean muscle mass
- Strengthen immune system
Short for “body protection compound,” this power-packed peptide is a true healing hero for the way it significantly speeds up the healing process for all kinds of tissues, from muscles and tendons to your gut and your brain. BPC-157 can help in the following ways:
- Accelerate muscle and tendon healing
- Aid in reducing arthritis pain
- Decrease inflammation
- Increase collagen production
- Repair lean tissue throughout the body
- Improve intestinal health
- Enhance GABA neurotransmission
- Counteract the effects of Parkinson’s disease
Stubborn fat and pesky pounds are no match for AOD 9604, which stimulates fat burning and weight loss without affecting blood insulin levels. This fat fighter is a favorite for the way it:
- Regulates fat metabolism
- Triggers fat release
- Increases your metabolism
Like HGH, sermorelin provides important benefits in the treatment of adult growth hormone deficiency. Both therapies stimulate the division and replication of cells to promote growth. But unlike injections of synthetic HGH, sermorelin stimulates the pituitary gland to produce its own HGH which in turn leads to:
- Improved sleep quality
- Reduced subcutaneous fat
- Increased muscle mass
- Increased stamina
- Decreased muscle and joint soreness
- Strengthen immune system
- Aid in the reverse of cognitive decline
GHK-CU Copper Peptide
An anti-aging powerhouse, GHK-CU Copper Peptide is considered a skin savior for its many beautiful benefits, such as:
- Improving overall skin appearance
- Increasing skin firmness, elasticity and clarity
- Repairing the skin’s protective barrier
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles, inflammation and free radical damage
- Diminishing photodamage and hyperpigmentation
- Stimulating wound healing
- Protecting skin cells from UV radiation
- Increasing hair growth and thickness
IGF-1 LR3, a potent peptide, is preferred by fitness fanatics for the way it enhances athletic performance and weight loss efforts because it:
- Accelerates fat burning and fat loss
- Improves skin elasticity and collagen production
- Builds lean muscle
- Enhances strength and stamina
- Decreases inflammation
- Improves sleep
- Heals and repairs lean muscle tissue
- Helps balance blood insulin levels
