Peptides are specialized medications that have very targeted actions at the cellular level and maintain a great safety profile and minimal contraindications making them great for wellness, healing and restoration. We are seeing great results in the clinic and they are all supported by sound clinical data. Here are the key points to understand about peptides:
- They are able to target a single receptor on specific tissues with great specificity
- They aren’t metabolized in the liver or kidney so you don’t have metabolism type drug interactions.
- They are selective for the exact effect you want without any collateral concerns.
For several years, we have been using Sermorelin, GHRP2 and GHRP 6 peptides to increase growth hormone levels and help with retaining the benefits of higher growth hormone levels. The newer peptides that we are using and the benefits are shown below:
Melanotan II. Provides safe tanning of the skin for men women. Melanotan II also has the “side effect” of enhancing sexual arousal in men and women.
Bremelanotide. Enhances sexual arousal in men and women and also treats ED in men. Made from the same molecule as Melanotan II, but it was changed to avoid the tanning effect.
CJC1295/Ipamorelin/Sermorelin. Increases growth hormone levels and IGF-1, but does so in a way that also enhances fat loss. Great for patients needing to lose weight. CJC1295 is the next generation Sermorelin, similar molecule but more effective in smaller doses. Ipamorelin is a peptide known for enhancing fat loss. CJC1295/Ipamorelin is a great combination for increasing growth hormone levels and promoting maximum fat loss. Pretty much everyone over 40 would benefit from one of these peptides since growth hormone levels start declining in the early 40’s and continue that decline through the golden years without support. Optimal growth hormone levels promote:
- Increased fat loss
- More muscle gain
- Healthier and more youthful looking skin, hair and nails
- Improved Energy and Sexual Performance
Thymosin α1. Restores and modulates immune function by augmenting T-cell function. Useful for patients with CIRS and/or Lyme to help regulate the immune system and increase MSH levels.
BPC-157. Accelerates healing of damaged ligaments and
and tendon to bone injuries. In addition, BPC 157 seems to protect organs and to prevent ulcers of the stomach. BPC-157 acts
systemically in the digestive tract to combat leaky gut, IBS, cramps, and crohn’s disease.
Tesofensine. Results from clinical trials have shown that 0.5 mg of tesofensine per day safely and effectively induces weight loss in obese patients. Further, The reduction in body weight was associated with a significant improvement in weight-related quality of life. In one 24 week study, the 0.5 mg dose of Tesofensine produced weight loss of 10.4%, so think 25 lbs off a 250 lb person.

Here is what one patient had to say after using Melanotan II!
“Oh my gosh, like the tropics! Love it. It works great for tanning, and I seem to have to use it 3 days to keep the color, 2 doesn’t work as well. When Steve takes it at night, he has an erection all night! It works well for me. I like how it gives me desire too, even more than the T (Testosterone). Whatever that is that makes the desire, I could take everyday, love that feeling. I had no side effects at all. Steve is actually darker than I am. It gives you a pretty brown color. I’m such a guinea pig, I’ll tr y anything once. LOL.”
