Peptide Therapy Options
We offer a variety of peptide therapy options, including Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides and others that help increase muscle mass and burn fat.
Hexarelin is a synthetic peptide composed of 6 amino acids making it a “hexaptide”. Hexarelin is a peptide GH secretagogue with a potent ability to stimulate GH secretion and recently reported cardioprotective actions. Research has shown that the effects from GH include increased bone mineral density, increased mitosis and meiosis which leads to more muscle mass, triglyceride hydrolysis which causes prominent fat loss, connective tissue strengthening, and improved skin elasticity. Because Hexarelin’s amino acid sequence may help in promoting the body to produce more Growth Hormone, it will not shut down the body’s own production. This is a very important factor and makes Hexarelin an attractive chain when compared to Growth Hormone alone. This synthetic peptide has similar GH-secreting properties with its predecessors such as the GHRP 6, GHRP 2 and GHRP 1. However, unlike GHRP 6, hexarelin does not induce food intake because of its incapability to drastically increase the grehlin levels that are responsible for the feeling of hunger and faster emptying of the gastric system. But the studies of Deghenghi et al. (1994) reported that hexarelin possessed similar effectiveness in stimulating the GH release in a long-lasting event and slightly more effective than the GHRP 6. These are supported by a number of studies. Locatelli et al. (1999) reported that hexarelin provides protection and healing especially for the cardiac dysfunction and abnormalities.
AOD 9604 is a modified form of amino acids 176-191 of the GH polypeptide. Investigators at Monash University discovered that the fat-reducing effects of GH appear to be controlled by a small region near one end of the GH molecule. This region, which consists of amino acids 176-191, is less than 10% of the total size of the GH molecule and appears to have no effect on growth or insulin resistance. It works by mimicking the way natural Growth Hormone regulates fat metabolism but without the adverse effects on blood sugar or growth that is seen with unmodified Growth Hormone. Like Growth Hormone, AOD 9604 stimulates lipolysis (the breakdown or destruction of fat) and inhibits lipogenesis (the transformation of nonfat food materials into body fat) both in laboratory testing and in animals and humans. Recent findings have shown, in addition to its fat loss properties, AOD 9604 processes many other regenerative properties associated with growth hormone. AOD 9604 has an excellent safety profile, recently obtaining Human GRAS status in the USA.
Bremelanotide was developed from the peptide hormone Melanotan II. In initial testing, Melanotan II did induce tanning but additionally caused sexual arousal and spontaneous erections as unexpected side effects in nine out of ten original male volunteer test subjects.
Further testing showed Bremelanotide to induce lordosis and was also effective in treating sexual dysfunction in both men (erectile dysfunction or impotence) and women (sexual arousal disorder). Unlike Viagra and other related medications, it does not act upon the vascular system, but directly increases sexual desire via the nervous system.
Tesamorelin is an injectable compounded prescription medicine used to reduce excess abdominal fat in patients with lipodystrophy. Tesamorelin has been used off brand to increase muscle mass in patients, as well as reduce triglycerides, increase cognition in patients over 60, decrease cIMT and decrease c-reactie protein. Tesamorelin contains a growth hormone-releasing factor (GRF).
Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide Two (GHRP-2) is the strongest of the family of growth hormones releasing peptides. Yet, GHRP-2 is a healthier alternative to synthetic growth hormones and offers additional safety and lower costs. Some of the benefits with GHRP-2 include:
- Improved muscle mass
- Decreased body fat
- Improved injury healing
- Improved sex drive
- Improved skin elasticity
Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide Six (GHRP-6) increases GH production. Highly desirable with athletes, GHRP-6 offers the following benefits:
- Increases energy
- Improves sleep
- Increases lean body mass
- Decreases body fat
- Increases collagen production
Ipamorelin is a new muscle building peptide supplement that can significantly increase muscle mass while burning fat. The growth hormone released from Ipamorelin makes this one of the strongest peptide supplement on the market. The benefits of Ipamorelin therapy include:
- Increases growth hormone levels
- Reduces hunger levels
- Increases lean body weight
Sermorelin is a form of growth hormone releasing factor (GRF) that contains only the first 29 amino acids. The GRF that is produced by neurosecretory neurons in the brain contains 44 amino acids. In the 1970’s Nobel Laureates, R. Guilleman and A. Shalley found that only the first 29 amino acids are responsible for stimulating pituitary production and recreation of hGH. Therefore, the chemical name for Sermorelin is GRH 1-29 NH 2.
