Peptide Therapy Q & A

What is peptide therapy?

A peptide consists of a chain of amino acids that act similarly to a small protein, signaling cells and molecules how to function. Peptides administered with injections just under the skin, or in the form of creams, oral tablets, or nasal sprays, encourage your cells to produce growth hormones that boost your energy and immunity, leading to overall improved health.

Why is growth hormone important?

Growth hormone repairs your body when it’s been subjected to stress, injury, and workouts. Once you’ve passed the age of 20, your production of growth hormones decreases significantly at a rate of approximately 14% per decade. Peptide therapy helps restore your growth hormone levels by encouraging your pituitary gland to increase production.

How can I benefit from peptide therapy?

Who is a candidate for peptide therapy?
