The Power of Peptides
Peptides are short chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of protein. Peptides have a variety of functions in the body, including hormone production, cell signaling, and supporting immune function.
Peptide therapy is a type of treatment that uses peptides to help the body heal from a variety of health conditions, including chronic inflammation, acute injury, and the natural effects of aging.
With more than 7,000 known peptides, each one plays an important role within the body. With peptide therapy, we can harness the power of these tiny molecules to achieve optimal performance, beauty, and health.
What Do Peptides Do?
When compared to hormones, peptides have more precise tissue-selective effects and faster action with fewer adverse effects. With a broad range of targets, they have high specificity, and high potency, but low toxicity.
Peptides may also help to repair, enhance, or restore structure in cells by increasing the amount of cellular material available.
Peptides are an effective treatment for a wide variety of health conditions and symptoms.
The peptides used in peptide therapy are all-natural and familiar to the body. Healthcare providers at Advanced Regenerative Therapy Atlanta may recommend peptide therapy to help you address issues like:
- Chronic fatigue
- Poor sex drive and/or erectile dysfunction
- Thinning and/or dull hair
- Reduced skin elasticity and wrinkling
- Autoimmune diseases
Peptides for Athletic Performance
Peptides are an increasingly popular treatment for professional and amateur athletes. Peptides stimulate the release of human growth hormone, which plays an important role in bone and muscle growth.
The peptides being used at Advanced Regenerative Therapy help athletes increase speed, strength, and endurance. Our practitioners recommend peptides to also help athletes build lean muscle and reduce age-related impacts on performance.
Schedule an appointment and we’ll create a custom plan to improve your athletic ability and promote muscle growth with peptides.
We use the Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) stimulation of Ipamorelin and CJC-1295 together with the powerful endocrine effects of IGF-1, so you experience all of the benefits of pure growth hormone without the negative side effects.
Ipamorelin stimulates the pituitary gland to secrete growth hormone which in turn increases energy, improves sleep quality, burns fat, and allows for more effective fitness and weight training.
CJC-1295 works with Ipamorelin to stimulate more growth hormone release in the body. It is a little longer acting than Ipamorelin, and takes longer to peak.
By combining the two, you get a more rapid onset and a more lasting effect than using them independently.
We pair these peptides with IGF-1, an endocrine hormone that has shown exceptional results as a fat loss medication. By inhibiting glucose from moving quickly into the body’s cells, IGF-1 facilitates fat burning and increases the use of fat in the body for energy.
Benefits of the Ipamorelin/CJC-1295/IGF-1 combination include:
- Fat loss
- Muscle gain
- Libido enhancement
- Accelerated wound healing
- Improved bone density
- Improved skin quality
MOTS-c is a peptide made up of 16 amino acids expressed by a mitochondrial gene. This tiny peptide plays a key role in cellular energy.
MOTS-c is necessary for the body to regulate metabolic processes, like converting glucose into energy and helping to regulate blood sugar. It’s also exercise-mimetic, meaning it imitates exercise on the body, which increases muscle glucose uptake without stimulating insulin.
MOTS-c targeting skeletal muscle is often used as a therapeutic intervention against metabolic conditions like type-2 diabetes.
The BPC-157 peptide encourages the natural healing of joint pain and disfunction.
This peptide of 15 amino acids is derived from human gastric juices. Many experiments have shown how BPC-157 can heal tissues like:
This peptide can increase the blood flow into injured or diseased tissue. With the ability to protect organs, prevent stomach ulcers, and heal skin, BPC-157 has even been shown to protect the brain from damage after a stroke.
Peptide therapy is administered by small, subcutaneous injection. Your practitioner will determine the length of treatment based on your condition and desired results.
