IBUTAMOREN (MK-677)

 Also known as Ibutamoren, is a growth hormone secretagogue clinically shown to increase growth hormone and IGF-1 levels significantly and its safe to use because it doesn’t suppress the body’s natural ability to produce growth hormone, so its safe to use.  The term secretagogue refers to any substance that triggers secretion of another substance, in this case, the substance being secreted is growth hormone. Its main benefits in our biochemistry are increased muscle growth, decrease body fat, improve cognitive function, helps you sleep better, speed up recovery, and slows aging down. 

IPAMORELIN

A selective GH-Secretagogue and ghrelin receptor agonist. The potency of ghrelin stimulation can be compared to GHRP6 with less appetite stimulation properties. However, unlike other growth hormone-secretagogues, this pentapeptide doesn’t release the same volumes of cortisol, acetylcholine, prolactin, and aldosterone. It is, for this reason, Ipamorelin has been considered the first & best selective growth hormone-secretagogue.

SERMORELIN 

A secretagogue of growth hormone made of 29 amino acids. It stimulates the brain's hypothalamus, a gland adjacent to the pituitary gland to release growth hormone. As we get older, the growth hormone produced by the anterior pituitary begins to deplete. It has now been shown that Sermorelin can restore growth hormone to a youthful level causing an array of health benefits. 

CJC 1295  

A tetrasubstituted 30-amino acid peptide hormone, primarily functioning as a growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) analog. CJC 1295 has been shown to increase growth hormone in enormous amounts, but without side effects. CJC 1295 stimulates growth hormone secretion, and will keep a steady increase of HGH and IGF-1 with no increase in prolactin, leading to fat loss, and increased protein synthesis thereby promoting growth hormone. One of the reasons CJC 1295 may be prescribed over traditional GHRH or HGH is its ability to bioconjugate with serum albumin, thus increasing its half-life and potential therapeutic window. It accomplishes this by using protecting groups around the amino acids of GHRH typically susceptible to enzymatic degradation.

GROWTH HORMONE RELEASING PEPTIDE 2 (GHRP-2)

A peptide made up of just six amino acids, which stimulates secretion of endogenous GH. Research shows GHRP 2 can stimulate the pituitary to increase secretion of growth hormone by 7-15 times, stimulating ghrelin receptors to promote appetite. GHRP 2 acts as a synthetic ghrelin analog that stimulates the release of an endogenous growth hormone within the somatotropes of the anterior pituitary. Specifically, GHRP 2 will increase the number of somatotropes in a GH pulse by limiting the amount of somatostatin present while standard GHRH increases the amplitude at which the pituitary cells pulse.

GROWTH HORMONE RELEASING PEPTIDE 6 (GHRP-6)

Is not an active fragment of growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH). It is one of several synthetic met-enkephalin analogs that include unnatural D-amino acids that were developed for their growth hormone releasing activity and are called growth hormone secretagogues. GHRP 6 is a true hGH secretagogue. Which means it stimulates the body’s own secretion of HGH. Human Growth hormone has been shown in studies to promote lean body mass and reduce adiposity (fat). It is now known that these growth hormone releasing peptides are distinct from GHRH and do not act at the GHRH receptor, but instead act at the growth hormone secretagogue receptor, now renamed as the ghrelin receptor. It is for this reason (gherlin like properties) patients being treated with GHRP 6 experience appetite stimulation. In therapy GHRP 6 is used to stimulate growth hormone production while increasing body mass. Patients deficient in growth hormone and underweight would be ideal candidates for GHRP 6.

IGF-1 LR3

Most often, IGF-1 LR3 (eighty-three amino acids) is used to stimulate muscle growth, and the compound significantly helps to make the body more sensitive to insulin, which in turn mobilizes fat for use as energy in adipose tissue. In lean tissue mass, IGF-1 LR3 prevents insulin from transporting glucose across cell membranes. As a result, the cells have to switch to burning off fat as a source of energy.

BPC 157 (FOR FAST HEALING FROM INJURY) 

Demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments. This peptide (composed of fifteen amino acids) is also shown to decrease pain in damaged areas. 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. 

THYMOSIN BETA 4 (DEEP TISSUE REPAIR FROM INJURY)

Is a hormone and its primary function is to stimulate the production of T cells, which are an essential part of the immune and used mainly for acute injuries, and surgical repair.

PT-141 (LIBIDO TREATMENT) 

Unlike Viagra and other related PDE5 inhibitor medications, this peptide medication does not act upon the vascular system but directly increases sexual desire via the nervous system. It treats sexual dysfunction in both men (erectile dysfunction or impotence) and women (sexual arousal disorder).

DELTA SLEEP INDUCING PEPTIDE (DSIP)

It is a peptide that produces a deep state of sleep. It was primarily involved in sleep regulation due to its ability to induce slow-wave sleep and can normalize blood pressure and myocardial contraction. We suggest taking this peptide five nights a week and two nights off a week to avoid a diminishing response for sleep because if its high attrition rate.

SELANK (NOOTROPIC PEPTIDE)

Has been shown to improve the formation/storage of memory, learning process, and brain performance. Selank is also used as a treatment for depression, anti-anxiety, immune improvement,  and gastric protection.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

HOW DO I TAKE THESE PEPTIDES?
 
Peptides are injected into the body fat, subcutaneously, using the smallest needle available, similar to what a person with diabetes uses to inject insulin.  Injections are initially prescribed to inject every night and over time, are decreased in frequency. However, this will be assessed by one of our medical directors. 


DO OTHER PEPTIDES LIKE GHRP-2 & 6 WORK BETTER WITH SERMORELIN TREATMENT?

Yes and no. 5 out of 10 patients experience side effects like uncontrollable hunger pangs, hot flashes, sleepiness, and headaches with GHRP'S. The other five, report significant better results with the combination of Sermorelin & GHRP peptides.


HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE BEFORE MY PEPTIDE TREATMENT STARTS WORKING?

Peptides, like HGH, is excreted from the body very quickly so it must be injected on a nightly basis. The benefits can be seen as early as eight weeks into treatment, but initial and almost immediate benefits include better sleep, mental sharpness, and memory retention. However, to experience complete physical effects, these medications should be taken continuously for six months.


WILL I HAVE TO TAKE A PEPTIDE TREATMENT FOREVER

Yes and no. Once optimal growth hormone levels are achieved, they can be sustained for a long time after final injection. We've only seen this, if weight resistance training and a healthy diet are implemented along with the patient's treatment.

For those who are not as active or lucky, once results are achieved, patients are then switched to a maintenance protocol eliminating the need for ongoing nightly injections and reducing the total cost of therapy. However, this will be determined through follow-up blood work and the patient's feedback.

 


WHAT IS THE COST OF THESE PEPTIDES?

The cost of therapy will vary depending on the peptide prescribed. Approximately $100 to $300 per month is the price range. We strongly advise our patients to commit to a six-month treatment to maximize the results and benefits of these medications. Otherwise, you are not giving the treatment the length it needs to show you optimal results. 


ARE PEPTIDES THE SAME AS HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE (HGH)?

No. Peptides are human growth hormone secretagogues, which means they stimulates the pituitary gland and/or hypothalamus to release natural growth hormone and IGF-1. Unlike injectable growth hormone, the body will only use the amount needed.


CAN I OVERDOSE FROM A ANY OF THESE PEPTIDE TREATMENTS?

No. In comparison to injectable HGH, peptides are safer, more affordable, and can be just as effective. Our endocrine system can safely regulate (through a negative feedback loop) the amount of growth hormone released by the pituitary gland. This results in zero overload to the system, increased safety , and prevention of side effects.


ARE DOSAGES OF HGH AND PEPTIDE COMPARABLE?

Although they work on different sites in the body, HGH acts on the liver and peptides act on the pituitary and/or hypothalamus gland, the amount of each needed to be effective is approximately the same.
