What is Growth Hormone Peptide Therapy?
Peptides are the building blocks of proteins. Over 7000 peptides have been discovered in nature and we are finding that some of these exogenous peptides provide incredible results in the human body for all types of health benefits. The concept has been around since the 1920’s when we started using the hormone insulin for diabetics.
Growth hormone peptide therapy uses bioidentical peptides, like Sermorelin, Ibutamoren (MK-677) & Ipamorelin, to stimulate secretion of your body’s natural Human Growth Hormone (HGH) production. Similarly, Ipamorelin can be combined with CJC-1295 (without DAC) to create an extra strong pulse of HGH with the potential to increase IGF-1 secretion. We do NOT recommend DAC (drug affinity complex) with CJC-1295because it creates an unnatural release of growth hormone, which can result in a GH bleed—leading to inferior results. DAC can permanently damage your pituitary gland if taken for too long, so in our opinion is not worth the risk. There are many new and exciting peptides being developed for all types of health benefits. We will always put overall health and safety as a priority when selecting which peptides to work with. We expect to be adding many new peptide therapy options for our members in the near future, so be sure to ask what the latest options are.
How Does Growth Hormone Peptide Therapy Work?
Sermorelin and CJC-1295 are amino acid fragments of the endogenous Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) our body produces to signal the pituitary gland to release growth hormone (GH). Ipamorelin and Ibutamoren (MK-677) are growth hormone releasing peptides (GHRP), aka secretagogues, that stimulate the hypothalamus to secrete higher amounts of GHRH. The additional GHRH will then stimulate your pituitary gland to increase the production of HGH naturally. Several of these products can be used in combination (ie. Ipamoreiln + CJC-1295) to achieve maximum results by increasing the strength of the pulse when releasing growth hormone and the length of time the pulses are increased.
Is growth hormone peptide therapy right for me?
HGH production is at its peak around the age of twenty, but then production declines about 14% every ten years. Each year after 30, we decline 1-2%. That may not sound like much, but by the time a decade of decline has occurred, the human body only produces about 40% of what it originally was producing during our peak years. We will perform a blood test to assess whether your levels fall into the proper range, and you will also meet with our physician to assess your symptoms before determining if you are a candidate. It is important to assess your health in its entirety instead of just looking at a number on a report. We will also confirm there are no potential contraindications that would preclude you from being eligible.
