How Peptides Can Help You Look and Feel Younger

No one can halt the march of time. As we age, our bodies’ cells are less capable of storing and using energy.

To combat the effects of aging, many turn to human growth hormone (HGH) so they can have more energy, better sleep, increased weight loss, and better skin. But the unwanted side effects can be unbearable, which is why people are opting for peptide therapy instead.

What Are Peptides?

Peptides are chains of amino acids that construct proteins like collagen that are needed to maintain things like healthy skin. Peptides play an essential role in rejuvenating your cells and healing from injury.

Recently there had been an explosion in the use of peptides to help slow the signs of aging. Skin creams use peptide collagen to tighten the skin and antimicrobial peptides to remove age spots on the hands and face. Fitness enthusiasts use creatine peptides to build muscle, lose fat, increase strength, and stimulate their metabolism.

Peptide Therapy

Peptide therapy involves injecting naturally occurring peptides into the body, which helps increase HGH production.

Peptide therapy has been in use for decades to treat weight loss, improve athletic performance, and increase sexual stamina. Using new natural sources of peptides, treatments are now effective and longer-lasting.

Different peptides serve different functions including breaking down fat cells, enhancing sexual performance, improving muscle retention, and protecting your skin from UV rays.

One of the most popular types of peptide therapies uses a combination of growth-hormone-releasing hormones (GHRH) and Ipamorelin, a growth-hormone-releasing peptide (GHRP). These function to increase the signals from the pituitary gland to release and produce more human growth hormones.

This is a far safer and more natural way to stimulate the body into HGH production which greatly reduces the number of side effects.

Signs You Might Need Peptide Therapy

Peptides affect how your body uses nutrients, how you exercise, and how your immune system responds. Both men and women can benefit from peptide therapy, especially those who want to participate in more physical activity.

As we enter our 40s, the body’s production of amino acids decreases. It is usually around middle age that most people consider peptide therapy. Here are some symptoms that might indicate peptide therapy is needed:

  • Higher levels of body fat, particularly around the abdomen
  • Decreased libido, sexual function
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Sensitivity to heat and cold
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Decreased stamina

Peptide therapy isn’t for everyone, but if you feel lethargic or have trouble losing weight and want to know more about peptide therapy, let’s talk.
