What is peptide therapy?

Before getting to the beauty of this new treatment, let’s begin with the basics. Peptides are tiny proteins made up of short chains of amino acids. They signal the cells in your body to perform in specific ways. While they may be extremely small, they’re really a big deal because they are responsible for all of the ways that your body and mind function. From your athletic performance and weight loss to your libido, appearance and memory, peptides play a role in how you feel, look and live. With different peptides affecting different cells and functions, they can be highly tailored and targeted to treat a wide variety of fitness, anti-aging, health and wellness conditions.

  • Builds muscle
  • Boosts energy
  • Enhances physical performance
  • Burns fat
  • Increases weight loss
  • Repairs muscles and tendons
  • Improves appearance

With more than 7,000 naturally-occurring peptides, the following are a few that are popular for the ways they can help you achieve your fitness, anti-aging and wellness goals.


Sermorelin is a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GH-RH). This means sermorelin is a hormone that tells the body to produce a different type of hormone. It ultimately controls other growth hormone levels and delivers these worthwhile benefits:

  • Increases lean muscle mass
  • Reduces body fat
  • Boosts energy
  • Strengthens immune system
  • Improves cardiovascular health
  • Enhances quality of sleep
  • Builds stamina
  • Improves skin firmness and thickness
  • Accelerates healing

  • Increases fat loss and weight loss
  • Accelerates healing and recovery
  • Improves sleep and mood
  • Enhances cognitive function
  • Increases lean muscle mass
  • Improves immune system


Short for “body protection compound,” this power-packed peptide is a true healing hero for the way it significantly speeds up the healing process for all kinds of tissues, from muscles and tendons to your gut and your brain. It can help in the following ways:

  • Accelerates muscle and tendon healing
  • Aids in reducing arthritis pain
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Increases collagen production
  • Repairs lean tissue throughout the body
  • Improves intestinal health
  • Enhances GABA neurotransmission

Are peptides safe to use?2023-11-15T11:37:17-05:00

Peptide treatments are considered safe with minimal side effects because the body can easily recognize and utilize the amino acids they contain. Since our bodies naturally produce amino acids, they readily accept and respond well to peptide therapies. This compatibility contributes to the therapy’s high safety factor and reduces the likelihood of experiencing any unwanted adverse effects.

In rare cases of reaction, you’ll find these are superficial and may include:

  • A rash at the injection site
  • Headache
  • Nausea
