Peptide Replacement Therapy
Do Peptide Treatments Work?
How Does it Work?
Ipamorelin Acetate is a Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide (GHRP) that stimulates the pituitary gland within the body to release natural growth hormone (GH). Ipamorelin Acetate is a pentapeptide composed of five amino acids and has a biological half-life of 2 hours after administration. It is widely known for being able to suppress somatostatin or growth inhibiting hormone.
As we age, our hormone levels fluctuate interfering with patient’s overall quality of life. Imbalances can result in loss of energy, increased irritability, sleeplessness, memory problems, and low sex drive. Utilizing peptide therapy separately or in conjunction with hormone replacement may restore optimal hormone levels in your patients. Studies suggest that Ipamorelin Acetate did not affect FSH, LH, Prolactin, or TSH levels. Furthermore, Ipamorelin did not seem to have an impact on cortisol and ACTH levels during GHRH stimulation.

-Improved mental functions and better memory These benefits increase even more when you add exercise to your program.
Sermorelin Therapy Can Help You Look and Feel Younger While Slowing the Aging Process
Sermorelin therapy will stimulate the pituitary gland to release your body’s natural growth hormone at more youthful levels. Sermorelin Plus+ This formula combines Sermorelin with GHRP-2 and GHRP-6 (growth hormone releasing peptides). These peptides work synergistically with Sermorelin to increase the frequency your body releases growth hormone, simulating natural, youthful hormone rhythms. Sermorelin/Theanine/GHRP-2 Theanine (an amino acid known to relieve anxiety) is combined with Sermorelin and GHRP-2 to promote calming effects, stress relief, and more restorative sleep along with more optimal growth hormone function.
GHRP-6 or Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-6 is basically a type of injectable synthetic peptide hormone that has been seen to have beneficial effects on muscle growth and development as well as improving joint and skin health. It is also considered as one of the true human growth hormone secretagogues (GHS) that is available commercially these days.
This peptide works by directly targeting the HGH secretagogue receptor, which plays a key role in the activity of the ghrelin hormone in the body.
Apart from signaling the brain when to activate the body’s hunger responses and protecting neurons from damage, studies also show that ghrelin can stimulate the anterior pituitary gland to churn out higher amounts of growth hormones, which significantly helps pick up the pace on gaining muscle mass. Ghrelin can help prevent the buildup of fat while at it as well.
Moreover, GHRP-6 also has the capability to inhibit the activity of the somatostatin hormone in the body. When allowed to accumulate excessively, somatostatin tends to block the production and release of growth hormones in the system over time
Growth hormone releasing peptide 2 or GHRP 2 is a synthetic analog of GHRP 6. It is well-known for its ability to effectively improve and stimulate the production of human growth hormone. It also plays a role as a ghrelin activator. Ghrelin is a newly discovered peptide found in the gut. It binds to growth hormone secretagogue receptors as well as promotes food and stomach emptying.
GHRP 2 is a potent hexapeptide similar to GHRP 6. It has been extensively studied for its ability as a GHS (growth hormone secretagogue) or to stimulate the production of growth hormones. It is popular for its capacity to stimulate the release of ghrelin resulting to increased appetite and hunger. This peptide is best used to correct decreased production of growth hormones. It is also able to help unusually lean individuals gain weight. It is also an excellent substance to reverse the effects of aging amongst persons with low growth hormone levels.
GHRP 2 works through stimulating the pituitary gland’s natural ability to produce endogenous human growth hormone (HGH). It enhances HGH production in two ways – first, it amplifies the transduction pathway of natural growth hormone releasing signal which lead to an increase in growth hormone levels. Second, it inhibits the activities of somatostatin thus bringing about an increase in endogenous growth hormone levels.
What is PT-141 (Bremelanotide)? PT-141 (Bremelanotide) was developed from the peptide Melanotan 2, which is a synthetically produced variant of a peptide hormone naturally produced in the body that stimulates melanogenesis that is known as alpha-Melanocyte stimulating hormone. PT-141 has been shown in studies to provide libido-enhancing effects by activating the melanocortin receptors MC1R and MC4R, without tanning the skin.
PT-141 is a potential remedy for the treatment of female sexual dysfunction and male erectile dysfunction. Studies have shown that PT-141 does not act on the vascular system, but may increase sexual desire through the nervous system. Patient Benefits Over Time May Include:
Improves female sexual arousal disorder Improve sexual function in men (such as erectile dysfunction or impotence)
-Typical Prescribing Protocol:
Male: Males with no history of ED may begin with 1mg via subcutaneous injection in the lower right quadrant of abdomen approximately 45 minutes prior to sexual activity (titrating dose upward to effect as needed or tolerated). Males with a history or diagnosis of ED with inadequate response to Sildenafil 100mg may begin with 4mg via subcutaneous injection in the lower right quadrant of abdomen approximately 45 minutes prior to sexual activity (titrating dose upward to effects as needed or tolerated).
Female: Females with FSAD or HSDD may begin with 1mg via subcutaneous injection (titrating dose upward to effect as needed or tolerated).
What is CJC-1295? CJC-1295 is a tetrasubstituted 30-amino acid peptide hormone releasing hormone analog. It stimulates a release of HGH and IGF-1 without raising prolactin levels, leading to fat loss, and increased protein synthesis thereby helping growth. Our CJC-1295 is compounded without DAC (Drug Affinity Complex) because it provides a more effective GH spike in patients that resembles normal physiologic release of GH.
What is Ipamorelin and how is it Used with CJC-1295? Ipamorelin Acetate is a Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide (GHRP) that assists increasing the amount of Growth Hormone released. Ipamorelin is a pentapeptide composed of five amino acids and has a biological half-life of 2 hours after administration. It is widely known for being able to suppress somatostatin or Growth Hormone Inhibiting Hormone (GHIH). Using CJC-1295 in conjunction with Ipamorelin may be more effective in the
production of growth hormone secretion, and in helping speed recovery time from an injury. Patient Benefits Over Time May Include:
Promotes slow wave sleep, stimulating muscle growth and memory retention Promotes fat loss and lean body mass Increases protein synthesis thereby promoting growth of muscle Typical Prescribing Protocol: Dosing can significantly vary by patient, but it is commonly used at 300mcg via subcutaneous injection in the outer/upper buttock region once daily in the evening prior to sleep.
What is BPC-157? BPC-157 is a pentadecapeptide made up of 15 amino acids. It is a partial sequence of the body protection compound (BPC) derived from human gastric juice. Experiments have shown that it heightens the healing of many different types of tissues, including: tendon, muscle, nervous system, and is superior at healing damaged ligaments.
Patients who suffer from discomfort due to sprains, tears, and tissue damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide as it can increase blood flow back to the injured sites. BPC-157 may protect organs, prevent stomach ulcers, and heal skin burns. Patient Benefits Over Time May Include: Accelerated wound healing Anti-inflammatory properties May decrease pain in damaged areas Typical Prescribing Protocol: Prescribing is often based on body weight using 2mcg/kg to as much as 10mcg/kg twice daily. Commonly used doses range from 200mcg to 400mcg twice daily (400mcg to 800mcg daily). If used twice daily, intramuscular injection as close to the injury as possible or via subcutaneously for systemic purposes.
Use for 2-4 weeks before discontinuing; cease therapy for 2 weeks, then restart therapy if needed.
