Rejuvenating Peptide TherapyOrthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness Center is now offering Rejuvenating Peptide Therapy. Peptides are the newly emerging science of cell signaling amino acid sequences, with far-reaching regulatory and rejuvenation actions on neuro-endocrine-immune functionality. The specifically targeted use of peptides in the environment has the potential to rewrite bodily chemistry relationships, and ultimately generate a restorative trend towards anabolism and homeostasis. Peptides can also be utilized and applied in the treatment of injuries, with capabilities that help prevent chronic disease, and enhance peak performance.
You’ve heard about the benefits of Human Growth Hormone (“HGH”) Therapy. Losing weight, gaining muscle, strengthening bones, improving skin texture and tone. This is the preferred therapy of many aging Hollywood stars. It’s why they still look good into their 40s, 50s, 60s and even 70s. But giving straight HGH has some side effects and is very expensive.
Orthomolecular Nutrition & Wellness has the answer with our Rejuvenating Peptide Therapy program that will give you the same benefits of HGH Therapy, but without the nasty side effects and best of all, at 1/3 of the price. This exclusive therapy will allow your body to increase production of its own HGH and, over the course of time, will begin to repair and rejuvenate itself. Benefits Include:
- Increase in lean muscle growth through the development of new muscle cells
- Improvements in workout and recovery
- Reduces body fat
- Increases levels of energy, strength, and stamina
- Increase muscle mass, definition, and endurance (decrease in cellulite)
- Now getting a better, deeper and a more restful sleep
- Decrease in joint and muscle pain
What is Peptide Therapy?
A peptide is a short chain of amino acids that are linked together, and can be thought of as a small protein. To date, over 7,000 naturally-occurring peptides have been identified. In our bodies, these small proteins typically act as signaling molecules. They bind to receptors on the cell surface and tell other cells and molecules what to do.
Peptide therapy, or the use of specific peptides in treatment, has gained great popularity in recent years. This is due largely to the fact that these peptides are highly specific (i.e., only do what you want them to do) while also being well-tolerated and safe. As of January 2015, there were over 60 US FDA-approved peptide medications, 140 peptide drugs being evaluated in clinical trials, and 500 in pre-clinical development.
Most of these peptide drugs are administered intradermally, but can also come in the form of transdermal creams, nasal sprays, and oral tablets.
What Conditions Does Peptide Therapy Address?
Because these peptides are so numerous and variable in structure, their effects are likewise varied and wide-ranging. One class of these peptides are known as growth hormone secretagogues, and cause the secretion of one’s own, natural hGH in the body. These peptides have been shown to be very useful in the treatment of age-related conditions, osteoporosis, obesity, and various chronic inflammatory diseases, and have several advantages over traditional hGH administration.
Another type of peptide drug is composed of part of the hGH molecule that is responsible for fat cell death, and has been shown to be very effective as an anti-obesity drug. In addition to decreasing inflammation, these drugs lead to increased lean muscle mass and decreased body fat.
A certain class of peptide drug has been used to help prevent skin cancer by increasing the melanin in one’s skin, causing a darkening effect that mimics a quality sun tan. This peptide has also been shown to increase lean muscle mass and improve sex drive. Here are some of the peptides we prescribe at Orthomolecular:
-Thymosin Alpha 1
-Thymosin Beta 4
