Peptide therapy is a type of medical treatment that uses peptides to help treat various diseases and conditions. Peptides are short chains of amino acids, and they play an important role in many biological processes. There are over 7,000 known peptides within the human body and though some may be similar, each is responsible for facilitating a different response and action within the body. The unique property of peptides can be harnessed and used to treat specific conditions in a process known as peptide therapy.
Peptide therapy is still a relatively new field, with new research published frequently. The more we learn about how peptides interact with our bodies, the better we are able to effectively use them to treat various diseases and conditions in the body.
How Does Peptide Therapy work?
Peptide therapy refers to treating specific conditions in the body by restoring the number of peptides and stimulating cellular regrowth systems.
Since peptides are naturally found throughout the body, it is no surprise that when disordered, they can create ripples of effects across multiple systems that may affect other bodily functions such as metabolism, digestion, inflammation, weight loss, sexual desire, neuropathy, and a myriad of age-related conditions.
One of the most promising aspects of peptide therapy is its ability to target specific cells and tissues. This means that peptide therapy can be used to treat conditions that are caused by specific mutations or abnormalities in these cells. Peptide therapy is also a very versatile treatment, and it can be used in conjunction with other medical treatments. This makes it an ideal treatment for many different types of diseases.
Peptide therapy can aid in treating diseases or conditions by mimicking your body’s own peptides, which elicit a positive reaction in your body. As peptides are naturally occurring and specific in function, they are well tolerated within your body with minimal to no side effects of treatment. Generally, peptides used in therapy are crafted from animal or plant protein sources such as eggs, milk, meat, soy, oats, flaxseed, hemp seed, and wheat.
Some common functions of peptides include providing pain relief, aiding in soft tissue repair, accelerating healing processes, promoting weight loss and lean muscle gain, reversing symptoms of sexual dysfunction, and improving hormone production and cognitive function.
Peptide therapy is still being studied, and more research is being conducted. However, the potential benefits of this new medical treatment are very exciting, and peptide therapy may one day be used to treat a wide variety of diseases like Alheimers, cancer, and much more.
Types of Peptide Therapy The Wellness Lab Offers
We offer a variety of peptide therapy, including:
AOD to Treat Obesity
AOD-9604 (anti-obesity drug) is a synthetic peptide fragment that comprises a modified 15 aminoacid region of GH with a tyrosine component to help stabilize the molecule. It was originally developed by Professor Frank Ng at Monash University in Australia, with the intent of finding an anti-obesity drug that had the fat burning effects of human growth hormone (HGH) without the muscle-building effect. Its positive effects include promoting the repair of bone and cartilage in cases of osteoarthritis.
- Promotes lipolysis without effecting blood sugar or tissue growth
- Less appetite stimulation
- Treatment in osteoarthritis, hypercholesterolemia
BPC to Accelerate Healing
BPC-157, composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) that is discovered in and isolated from human gastric juice. Experimentally it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendons, muscles, nervous system and superior healing of damaged ligaments. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears and damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide. It can also help aid skin burns to heal at a faster rate and increase blood flow to damaged tissues.
- Accelerated wound healing
- Improved skin appearance
- Supports joint health
- Improves cognitive performance
SEMAGLUTIDE for Weightloss and Diabetics
An antidiabetic medication used for the treatment of type 2 Diabetes and long term weight management. Semaglutide is now FDA approved for non-diabetic weight loss.
