Peptides are the portions of amino acids which are the building blocks of protein.


The Benefits of Peptides

  • Autoimmune disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Cancers
  • Anti-aging
  • Wound repair
  • Gut healing
  • Weight loss
  • Increased libido
  • Sleep
  • Mood enhancement
  • Increases muscle mass
  • Increases bone density


Peptide Therapy

  • Replaces or supplements natural-occurring peptide levels inside the body
  • Allows the body to mimic the function of various natural peptides
  • Holds promise for interventions; such as regenerative and anti-aging


Classes of Peptides

  • BPC-157
  • Derived from a protein in the stomach called “body protection compound”
  • It can be taken orally or injected subcutaneously
  • Used for wound healing, anti-inflammatory, muscle healing, leaky gut, improves blood sugar, protects liver
  • ARA 290 or EMA401 or cibinetide
  • Synthetic peptide used for anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties
  • Derived from the EPO (erythropoietin protein)-helps with red cell production
  • Focuses on neuropathic pain, diabetic neuropathy and sarcoidosis
  • Synthetic tripeptide similar to human collagen
  • Used for skin elasticity, firmness, and youthful appearance
  • Works via topically and subcutaneous injection
  • Thymosin Alpha 1
  • Synthetic peptide that looks like the hormone excreted from the thymus gland
  • Modulates the activity of T-cells
  • Helps with autoimmune conditions
  • Thymosin Beta 4
  • Helps promote healing and repair of damaged tissues
  • Used for the regeneration of joint and tendon problems
  • Stimulates collagen and other essential structural proteins
  • CJC-1295
  • Growth hormone that helps with fat loss, muscle growth, cellular repair and deep sleep
  • Semaglutide
  • Helps with weight loss, appetite control, glycemic control, PCOS, cardiovascular benefits and neuroprotective properties
  • Sermorelin
  • Helps with sleep, energy, weight loss, muscle tone, sex drive and anti-aging
