BENEFITS OF PEPTIDES
Peptides have been used in a broad range of therapeutic applications- helping with focus, energy, anxiety, sleep, hormone imbalances, weight loss, immune-boosting, and more.
Benefits of Peptides
Peptides are known to be a natural occurrence in the human body. They are the chemical messengers that help your body function properly. Peptides’ vast importance in the cellular health process makes them a splendid therapeutic option in functional medicine, helping to balance the body by boosting its own natural processes to work in your favor in different ways.
Here we list the various ways that Peptide Therapy may be beneficial to you.
Peptide Benefits for Hormone Therapy
The production of hormones, which is mainly managed by peptides, helps to regulate a variety of functions from libido to energy levels (all which are regulated by hormones).
Peptides stimulate the body’s natural processes of hormone balancing; rather than using artificially made hormones which are commonly found in medicine today.
Peptide Benefits for Weight Loss
Certain peptides can induce lipolysis (the breakdown of fat cells), enabling the body to burn more fat in a shorter period of time. For example, CJC 1295– although artificially produced (unlike other therapeutic peptides), can boost protein synthesis and exhibits various other health benefits. Another common peptide — AOD 9604 (originally an anti-obesity drug) can burn fat by regulating the metabolism and stimulating the pituitary gland. AOD 9604 can even prevent the formation of fat in the body. Benefits to skeletal health have been observed by those on AOD 9604 peptide therapy. .
Peptide Benefits for Sexual Health
PT-141, also known as Bremelanotide, is used as a safe and effective treatment to combat sexual dysfunction in both men and women, without the need for pills or other synthetic medication. PT-141 has been observed to be able to increase sexual desire in both sexes without any adverse effect on the vascular system. As of June 21, 2019, PT-141 received FDA approval for treatment of hypoactive sexual desire disorder in premenopausal women.
Peptide Benefits for Anti-Aging and Aesthetics
Anti-aging properties have been found in some peptides. Peptides like CJC 1295 have been observed to have aesthetic advantages such as improvement of skin quality and tightness, reduction of under-eye bags, frown lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. In addition, CJC 1295 can increase energy and hair growth, giving a more holistic “youth” stimulation to the body.
Another peptide, GHK-Cu has been indicated to help tighten ageing skin, improve firmness, boost elasticity, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and to help resolve skin damage.
Peptide Benefits for Immune Support
Published studies have shown that peptides can have a profound effect on the immune system. The most common peptide, Thymosin Alpha-1, also known as Tα1, helps the body to protect against foreign invaders and has been extensively studied for its ability to enhance the immune system of cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, specifically by enhancing the production of killer & helper T cells, and dendritic cells.
Tα1 has been observed to exhibit antifungal and antibacterial properties, suppress tumor growth, increase vaccine effectiveness, and protect against oxidative damage. It is approved in more than 37 countries for the treatment of hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and as an adjunct to chemotherapy and various vaccines.
Peptide Benefits for Pain Relief
Opioid-based therapies have shown serious side effects that are accompanied with the risk of dependency and abuse. Peptides do not. Peptides can naturally bind to receptors in the brain to alleviate acute or chronic pain caused by physical traumas, diseases, and neurological damage. Clinical studies of Thymosin Beta-4 have shown that it can provide pain relief when injected into an injury site.
