- THERE IS A NUMBER OF THINGS THAT CAN GO WRONG WITH YOUR BODY
As we age, we begin to notice changes both in the way we look, and the way we feel. And usually, most of us aren’t too happy about it. We can try to eat right. Well, most of the time, right? We can exercise. When we can, right? The point is, we all want to live not just longer, but better. That’s where peptide therapy come in.
- UNDERSTANDING PEPTIDES STARTS WITH UNDERSTANDING AMINO ACIDS AND PROTEINS
Amino acids are organic compounds composed of nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. At their most simple description (simple is great), amino acids are the “building blocks” of proteins.) Proteins are large, complex molecules that play many critical roles in the body. They do most of the work in cells and are required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs. Think of a protein as a string of beads in which each bead is an amino acid.
- GOOD CHANCE YOU DON’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT PEPTIDES
Like proteins, peptides are also made up of strings of amino acids. Both are held together by something called peptide bonds and both play vital roles in a wide range of biological functions. The biggest difference between peptides and proteins is their difference in size. Peptides are made up of smaller chains of amino acids. So a protein is actually a large peptide.
- TELL THE BODY WHAT TO DO (IF THINGS GO WRONG, BLAME THE MESSENGER)
Peptides, which our bodies produce naturally, act as signaling molecules, instructing other cells and molecules on what functions to perform. There are over 7000 known peptides in our bodies, and all these different peptides have a wide range of functions, including immune system health, weight loss, improved cognitive function, and yes, anti-aging.
- HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH IT (AND IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT GROWING)
Hormones are chemical messengers playfully swimming at whim through our bloodstream telling every cell, organ and tissue what they are supposed to do. Growth hormone (GH) also known as human growth hormone (HGH), is a naturally-produced hormone generated from the pituitary gland, a pee-sized gland at the base of the brain. While HGH spurs growth in children and adolescents, it also helps to regulate body composition, body fluids, muscle and bone growth, sugar and fat metabolism and possibly heart function throughout life.
- THE OLDER WE GET, THE LESS THE BODY MAKES
As the body ages, the pituitary gland releases less HGH and the body begins to exhibit inevitable signs of aging such as wrinkles, muscle loss, weakness, weight gain, insomnia, lower bone density, fatigue, and sexual problems. Now when we talk about our aging body, we’re not just talking old old. Production of growth hormones in the body peaks around the ripe old age of 30, then decreases by as much as 15% per decade after that. So you can eat right and exercise until you’re ready to drop, but it’s not going to stop the drop of your HGH.
- SYNTHETIC HGH IS COOKED UP IN A LAB
Synthetic HGH has been used primarily as a performance drug mostly for bodybuilders and in the world of athletics. As sensational as it seemed, it was built on nothing but hype and unproven claims, considered an illegal drug by the FDA. It was actually banned from almost every sport. And for good reason, including serious side effects from infertility, diabetes, swollen arms and legs, and high cholesterol to increased risk of heart attacks and stroke. And yet synthetic HGH is still easy to obtain online, over the counter and even overseas.
- SERMORELIN AND IPAMORELIN ARE TWO NAMES TO REMEMBER (EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT SURE HOW TO PRONOUNCE THEM)
Without getting too high school biology class on you, sermorelin and ipamorelin are growth hormone releasing peptides (GHRP) that comprise peptide therapy. Both trigger the body to produce and release its own natural growth hormones in a consistent, stable way. Of the two drugs, sermorelin tends to be slightly more potent in its effects on the body. Ipamorelin is considered to be the gentler, `gradual option. But these two drugs have much more in common than they have differences. Both sermorelin and ipamorelin therapies are safe and effective in treating and in some cases even reversing the effects of age-related growth hormone decline.
- THE BENEFITS WILL BLOW YOUR MIND
While some peptide therapy options can take a few months before the effects start to become noticeable, many patients experience positive health effects within just days or weeks of starting the therapy. Below is just some of what you can expect:
