Peptide Therapy

As we age, our cells may not function properly or efficiently. When that occurs, it can lead to medical complaints on a day-to-day basis as well as an increased risk of chronic disease.

What are peptides?

Peptides are small groups of amino acids that turn on different biologic functions in the body. They are the building blocks of proteins. The purpose of peptide therapy is to help our cells work more optimally to do their designated job. These peptides are recognized in our body since the body produces many on its own, therefore the body already knows what to do with their signaling message. Our body can stop producing or become less reactive to our own peptides, therefore the addition of oral, topical, and injectable peptides can help our body regain its normal function. 

Peptides can help patients improve the following:

  • Mitochondrial dysfunction that can cause hormonal dysfunction and fatigue

  • Insulin resistance that can cause cardiovascular disease and difficulty with weight loss

  • Inflammation that can cause:

    • musculoskeletal pain

    • neurodegenerative processes

    • insomnia

    • autoimmune disease

    • cancer

  • Aging from impaired collagen synthesis, increased wrinkle formation, bone loss, and hair loss

  • Wound and post-surgical healing

  • Gastrointestinal health, especially in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and peptic ulcer disease

  • Sports performance optimization with improved muscle recovery
