Regenerative medicine is the science of helping your body regenerate, rejuvenate and repair damaged tissue. There is significant evidence for the use of clinical peptide therapy. Peptides work by giving specific instructions (signaling) to cells and molecules, making them a more effective alternative to traditional medicine. Because they are so specific, peptides are also well tolerated with minimal side effects.
Peptides play a vital role in the basic physiological and biochemical processes that keep the 'organism' alive. They perform a multitude of vital tasks in our bodies. Several different peptides control hormones. Your body also has the ability to break bonds in peptides and break them down further into amino acids thus, destroying them. As a result, over-the-counter products are simply not effective in creating the long lasting effects experienced with Advanced Clinical Peptides. Proteins are much longer than peptides, and most proteins are composite structures with the ability to provide binding of all amino acids. Generally speaking, if more than 50 amino acids are linked, the component is characterized as a protein, while smaller chains are called peptides.
Current efforts are being researched for Clinical Peptide therapy modifications that allow peptides to achieve better activity and plasma stability, and become more "drug-like". However, the inherent properties of peptides mean that they are easily hydrolyzed by digestive enzymes in the stomach and intestine, and most peptide drugs are thus administrated by injection (1). In addition to challenges associated with the biology of the GI tract itself, absorption of peptides is hindered by their physical characteristics, including their polarity and size of the dosage form, and their susceptibility to aggregation or degradation by the local pH in the intestinal tract (2).
A prescription for the compounded peptides is required and there are only a few pharmaceutical laboratories approved to produce advanced clinical peptides for human use. It is highly recommended clients seek an experienced provider that has obtained certification in this field.
Peptide therapies usually have a “loading” period of 3-6 months before the full effects are noticed and then can be used indefinitely with little to no side effects. As with any therapy, the best results are achieved when the tool is used as part of a comprehensive approach that optimizes your lifestyle and diet.
I’ll use comprehensive blood work and a functional approach to determine your target deficits and goals. We’ll then create a targeted peptide protocol and nutrition plan to maximize your results and optimize performance as we work together.
