The Potent Role of Peptides
Our cells communicate with each other constantly to coordinate the different functions of our body in a synchronized way.
This communication is achieved in part thanks to peptides, which can act as signaling molecules for different cellular processes.
Peptides are chains of amino acids, similar to a protein. While a protein usually has more than 100 amino acids, a peptide has between 2 and 50.
Peptides are considered biological drugs because they act as signaling molecules that inform the different organs what to do in a specific way, thus having a much more specialized effect and fewer adverse effects.
Peptides That We Offer
BPC-157 / TB-500 / MGF
BPC-157 is a powerful healing peptide. Commonly used for musculoskeletal injuries, it’s injected locally at the site of injury where it stimulates a rapid healing response from the body. BPC-157 can also be taken orally for the treatment of gut dysbiosis, leaky gut, and food sensitivities.
TB-500 is a peptide secreted mainly by the thymus, a gland that decreases in function and size as we age. At the musculoskeletal level, this peptide stimulates muscle growth, increases collagen production, and acts as a muscle relaxant. At the neuronal level, it encourages the creation of new neurons and the survival of existing ones.
MGF is a variation of IGF-1 which enhances muscle proliferation after mechanical load or damage.
This peptide acts directly on the pineal gland, helping to boost endogenous melatonin production. This has the dual effect of promoting deeper sleep and restoring one’s natural circadian rhythm.
In addition to its benefits on sleep, epitalon is also perhaps the most potent peptide for longevity. It has been linked to an improvement in memory, increases the lengths of one’s telomeres, increases bone density, and improves skin elasticity. It also helps decrease insulin resistance and acts as an antioxidant in the body. Given all of its anti-aging effects, this peptide is a must for anyone serious about their anti-aging protocol.
This peptide directly influences one’s sex hormones. In men, it stimulates the body to increase endogenous testosterone production. Endotest works very differently than testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), in which exogenous testosterone is administered. While TRT is effective at raising testosterone levels, it shuts down the body’s natural testosterone production and can cause fertility issues. Using endotest for hormonal support avoids these issues.
In women, endotest increases estrogen and progesterone. This allows it to be used as part of a fertility protocol for women.
One of the most powerful effects of NAD+ is its effect on energy metabolism. It acts as a powerful energy source for the body’s mitochondria, which in turn provide power to the cells. For this reason many people report feeling more energized and alert after regular NAD+ treatments. In addition, NAD+ facilitates the repair of damaged DNA.
NAD+ production declines as a person ages, making NAD+ a powerful anti-aging treatment. Along with epitalon, we recommend NAD+ for anyone who wants to focus on anti-aging.ﾠ
IPAMORELIN / TESAMORELIN / THYMULIN / GHRP-2
Ipamorelin, Tesamorelin, and GHRP-2 all work by stimulating the pituitary gland to increase endogenous growth hormone production. Thymulin differs in that it’s a peptide that plays a key role in the immune system’s function and regulation. It also has anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties.
Paired together, these four peptides work synergistically to build muscle mass, burn fat, and recover more rapidly from training or injury. This blend is also very effective at improving sleep quality. We recommend this blend to anyone with an active training protocol who is looking to improve their body composition and recovery time after training.
