Peptides (Growth Hormone Optimization)
Growth Hormone Optimization (Peptide Therapy) We utilize growth hormone-secreting medications called peptides. This essentially tells your brain to produce Human Growth Hormone (HGH) naturally. The medications are administered on a nightly basis and result in faster gym recovery times, faster injury recovery, increased muscle development, fat loss, improved skin quality, and improved sleep. It is typically given in 3-month cycles.
One growth hormone-releasing analog is Sermorelin. It promotes the production of HGH and should is taken at night to improve sleep quality. Sermorelin aids in fat loss, improves muscle composition, and anecdotally improves mood and well-being.
Ipamorelin is a Ghrelin agonist that stimulates HGH production. It has a steadier and slower release that mimics the natural release during sleep. It aids in fat loss, increasing muscle mass, improving sleep, and improving the immune system. If desired, it can be taken more long-term as an age management supplement in older patients.
CJC1295 / Ipamorelin Peptide: CJC1295 / Ipamorelin is a combination of two peptides.
Sermorelin Plus has all of the benefits of Sermorelin plus the added benefits of Ipamorelin and Glycine. Ipamorelin is a synthetic pentapeptide, a selective agonist of the ghrelin/ GHS receptor pathway. Ipamorelin selectively binds the GHSR-1a receptor in the brain. This interaction with GHSR-1a leads to a GH release from the pituitary gland, influencing several anabolic processes, including appetite regulation, fat processing, and overall energy usage. Studies have shown that Ipamorelin can be found in the gastrointestinal tract, heart, lungs, kidney, pancreas, liver, immune cells, and adipose tissue. Glycine is one of the stimulatory agents inducing the pituitary gland to secrete HGH.
Patients report improvements in libido and well-being, including augmented restful sleep, refined skin tone with stronger hair and nails, improvement in fat loss and lean body mass gains, and significant increases in growth hormone release two hours after administration.
