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.
Peptide therapy is one of the most modern innovations in regenerative medicine.
What Are Peptides?
Peptides are short chains of amino acids that occur naturally in the human body and have a broad range of therapeutic applications.
Peptides can act as chemical messengers in the body — helping the body to heal, rebuild, and rejuvenate. Peptides are involved in many bodily functions, including neurological activity, hormone regulation, digestion, as well as cardiovascular, renal, respiratory, and immune system function. In fact, there are more than 7,000 known peptides present in the human body alone.
Each peptide has a different function within the body. Some of the more commonly used peptides are those that build collagen, increase libido, support the immune system, help the development of lean muscle, and peptides used to repair damaged tissue. Since naturally occurring peptides decrease with age; peptide therapy is a great supplement for added support right where you need it.
People with different health and performance goals often consider peptide therapy to address weight loss, hormone imbalance, non-addictive pain management, immune system support, and anti-aging.
Peptide therapy is generally considered risk-free and can be used to produce very targeted effects. Several peptides have been approved by the FDA permitting them for use in medical trials and for general use.
How Are Peptides Used?
Peptides can be administered orally, through an IV infusion, or by Sub-Q injections and they can offset the effects of peptide degradation. Our favorite way to administer peptides is by Sub-Q injections or IV infusion, delivering them directly into the bloodstream without the usual breakdown process that occurs in the digestive tract

Why Use Peptide Therapy?
Peptide therapy is one of the most modern innovations in regenerative medicine. By using building blocks the human body produces naturally, we reduce unwanted side effects that accompany many pharmaceutical treatments. Natural peptide production can be disrupted by changes in your diet, stress, or simply with age, so peptide therapy can provide the body with the additional support to keep you going strong!
As modern medicine continues to make discoveries about the production of hormones, peptide therapy has become more precise and successfully applied in various treatment plans for both men and women.
Peptides can be used for more than just treating injuries. Peptide therapies are now available for a broad variety of reasons, each with its own unique benefits. Here is a look at some of the most common uses and benefits of peptides.
Who Benefits From Peptide Therapy Treatment?
Peptides can treat many specific conditions in the body, making them beneficial to a variety of individuals. Peptides can improve overall wellness, as well as limit the effects of aging. Some conditions it can improve are: inflammation, weight management, low libido, stimulating growth hormones, aid anxiety and depression, joint and muscle repair, improving mental clarity and focus, insomnia, and even preventing skin cancer by increasing the melanin in your skin.
Patients with autoimmune disease, chronic inflammation, Lyme disease and other chronic degenerative conditions may benefit from adding peptides to their treatment plan. Really, peptide therapy can be used by almost anyone!
