The field of peptide therapy is one of the most advanced and exciting fields in medicine. It is an up-and-coming area that has as much potential as stem cell therapy in changing the way we treat patients. Peptide therapy can help patients with disease and patients who would like to prevent disease. But what are peptides? Peptides are basically between 2 and 50 amino acids held together with a peptide bond; these peptides bind to receptors to achieve a certain outcome. The most widely used and well known peptide is insulin.
At Wildflower Wellness, we work with several peptides to upregulate certain activities in the body to meet a desired goal. We offer the following peptides in an effort to provide unparalleled treatment for very specific conditions.
Growth Hormone Therapy: Ipamorelin + CJC 1295
Exogenous growth hormone therapy is known to have serious negative side effects. These serious side effects have led to the illegality of growth hormone injection therapy for antiaging. However, peptides can be used to safely and physiologically enhance the release of growth hormone in the body, as well as enhancing how well the growth hormone works at its receptor sites throughout the body. This is a much safer and more effective way to meet your desired goals versus the use of exogenous growth hormone.
At Wildflower MediSpa, we combine the use of Ipamorelin, a growth hormone-releasing peptide (GHRP), and CJC 1295, a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH), to help you achieve your goals, which could include ant-iaging, weight loss, muscle growth, faster healing after injury and faster recovery following physical activity.
Ipamorelin is a growth hormone-releasing peptide. Even more specifically, it is a mimic of Ghrelin, a peptide made naturally within your GI system that has many positive effects on the body. This peptide causes a direct excretion of growth hormone and an increase in transcription of genes to stimulate the synthesis of growth hormone. Ipamorelin can be cardioprotective, improve immunity, cause weight loss, decrease irritable bowel syndrome symptoms and improve nerve repair. Additionally, this peptide can enhance hormone replacement therapy effects, decrease the neoplastic process, decrease systemic inflammation, improve sleep, increase bone density and improve mood. Furthermore, it can decrease stress/anxiety, decrease the sensation of pain, improve pain from arthritis and speed recovery after higher levels of activity.
CJC-1295 is a growth hormone-releasing hormone. The hypothalamus creates and stores CJC-1295. Upon its release, CJC-1295 attaches to the growth hormone-releasing hormone receptor, causing growth hormone release in the body. CJC-1295 has been found to have significant positive effects on the body, including improved wound healing, improved cardiac tissue health, improved pancreas activity, improved immune system and weight loss. Additionally, it can improve sleep, improve bone density and improve the reproductive system, as well as act with an inhibitory effect on cancer. Furthermore, individuals who use bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can have an increase in GHRT production, creating a synergy between these 2 therapies. Another great benefit of GHRH is improved potential when using stem cells for tissue repair through a very specific signaling pathway.
BPC-157 is a body protection compound peptide. This is an amazing peptide that is used for multiple processes within the body. While we do not fully understand the exact mechanism of this peptide, its benefits are clear. BPC-157 can reduce the release of inflammatory mediators in the body and has a direct protective effect on cells. This peptide offers benefits that include tissue repair, intestinal repair, nerve repair, blood vessel repair, weight loss, mood improvement and decrease in inflammation. BPC-157 is an excellent peptide to use on a daily basis to promote overall healing and wellness.
PT-141 is a peptide used to promote sexual health. For men, the use of this peptide can help decrease erectile dysfunction or impotence. In women, this peptide can help directly treat sexual arousal disorder.
Tesofensine is an excellent weight loss peptide. It is an oral medication taken once daily. Tesofensine can provide significant weight loss when taken over a six-month period. This peptide works as a presynaptic inhibitor of the neurotransmitter serotonin, noradrenaline and dopamine. Blocking these neurotransmitters acts to suppress the appetite, as well as having an effect on fat oxidation and metabolism. This is the most effective prescription weight loss medication available today.
