Peptide therapy involves using peptides, which are short chains of amino acids, for therapeutic purposes. Some key points about peptide therapy:
Equilibrium Hormone Institute
- Peptides are similar to hormones that occur naturally in the body. Synthetic peptides can stimulate the body to heal, spur new tissue growth, help manage weight, and enhance cognition and mood. They can have diverse effects depending on the type of peptide used.
- Popular peptides in use today include:
- BPC-157 - known for healing effects, especially for the gut, tendons, ligaments, and muscles
- CJC-1295 - stimulates natural growth hormone release and promotes fat loss
- Ipamorelin - growth hormone secretagogue that preserves muscle mass
- Peptide therapy is not approved by the FDA for medical treatment but is used widely in anti-aging and sports medicine clinics. It is appealing for those seeking healing, fat loss, muscle growth, or cognition benefits that traditional approved treatments may not provide. The lack of FDA approval means quality control standards and regulations are still evolving for commercial peptide products.
- Administration methods vary but common options are subcutaneous injections, intravenous therapy, or topical creams with transdermal transport-enhanced peptides. Frequency of administration ranges from a few times per week to daily depending on the peptide and purpose of use. Courses of treatment can run from a few weeks to many months or longer.
- Potential benefits depend on the peptide selected but can include:
- Increased healing of muscles, connective tissues, organs
- Fat loss and increased metabolism
- Muscle growth or preservation
- Better sleep quality
- Enhanced mood, learning, and focus
- Side effects are generally mild if protocols are followed properly but improper use does pose risks like hormone imbalances, hyperglycemia, nausea, fatigue or reactions at injection sites. It's critical to use high quality peptides and work closely with an experienced medical provider.
