Your libido has plummeted recently, you feel fatigued, and you can’t muster up the energy to keep up with your kids anymore. You may think these are natural consequences of getting older, but you’re not ready for your quality of life to be affected so significantly yet. Luckily, you don’t have to! With peptide treatment at Balanced Bodies in Sandy Springs, GA, you can turn back the hands of time and look and feel younger than you have in years.
What Are the Benefits of Peptide Treatment?
Peptide treatment is beneficial in that it reverses the effects of the aging process temporarily. However, this is not the only benefit of peptide therapy. Peptide therapy works by inducing cellular rejuvenation systems. Peptides are made up of short amino acid chains that attach to the receptors on the surfaces of cells.
In fact, the human body is made up of over 7,000 distinct peptides, and these protein chains can be found in every cell, including organ tissue cells and protein tissue cells. Each peptide communicates different instructions regarding which functions should be carried out. Peptides are essential components in all of your bodily processes, and it is essential to keep them balanced for overall wellness and health.
A Vast List
Here is a brief list of the benefits provided by peptide treatment to give you a better idea of how important they are:
- Stronger, healthier nails
- Improved mental abilities
- Greater workout efficacy
- Boosted libido
- Lowered body fat
- Increased muscle mass
- Improved muscle definition
- Increased energy
- Increased physical endurance
- Reduced skin laxity
- Fuller, thicker hair growth
- Improved sleep quality
- Drastically improved digestion
- Greater bone density
- Improved bone health
- Stronger immune system
- Less cellulite
- Improved ability to heal from wounds
- Less musculoskeletal pain
Different benefits can be realized depending on the type of amino acids in the peptide chains and their sequences. One distinction among peptides is the shape of the chain of amino acids. Different shapes affect the functionality of the different peptides. These differences let us create a tailored treatment that achieves your unique goals.
What Is Peptide Therapy?
Your body produces peptides naturally. However, when you are stressed or eating poorly, your body can’t produce enough peptides to maintain balance. Furthermore, it is common for people to produce peptides at a reduced rate as they age. Peptide therapy is an anti-aging treatment designed to restore balance to peptide levels, so your body and mind can function optimally once more. Some of the most common peptides used to restore a youthful body are:
- IGF-1 LR3 – muscle and cell growth
- Sermorelin – hormone growth
- BPC 157 – tendon and bone injury recovery
- Ipamorelin – enhanced exercise recovery, reduced body fat, increased energy
Many more peptides can be administered besides the four aforementioned peptides. For example, some peptides encourage your body to increase fat metabolism and break down fat cells.
The peptide named CJC 1295 is excellent for increased fat metabolism and also supports other functions, such as lean muscle mass growth and increased strength. Similarly, AOD 9604 can help to keep your metabolism running efficiently and burn more calories. AOD 9604 has also been shown to prevent the fat formation in the body and increase bone density.
Men are often prescribed pills for the treatment of sexual dysfunction. However, these pills often result in such side effects as headaches, diarrhea, and nausea. Similarly, women are commonly recommended a lubricant.
Unfortunately, neither pills nor lubrication addresses the root cause of sexual dysfunction, so any benefit gained is extremely temporary. Peptide therapy, on the other hand, addresses the root cause of sexual dysfunction by giving your body the resources it needs to heal itself. Therefore, you can expect highly effective, long-lasting results.
PT-141 is incredibly beneficial for both men and women who suffer from sexual dysfunction and doesn’t produce the negative side effects of sexual enhancement pills.
Furthermore, this peptide can increase libido and overall energy levels. Finally, while some peptides take several days or months to provide noticeable improvements, women often notice the benefits of this essential peptide within minutes of treatment. This is particularly beneficial for perimenopausal women.
Anti-Aging and Appearance
CJC 1295 is among the peptides best known for their anti-aging properties. It is commonly sought to increase metabolism to reverse the reduced metabolism that comes with age. However, it can also improve short- and long-term memory, as well as cognition. Furthermore, it may increase hair growth and provide you with more energy. Aesthetic benefits of CJC 1295 include smoother, tighter skin and the elimination of:
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Undereye bags
- Wrinkles around the mouth and nose
Until recently, people achieved pain relief with opioid-based therapies. While people still commonly turn to opioids to ease their pain, there is a rise in alternative treatments for pain due to the dependency risk associated with opioids. Peptides can bind to pain receptors in the brain, easing both acute and chronic pain without the side effects or risks of opioids.
You can benefit from peptide therapy for pain relief regardless of whether your pain is caused by trauma, disease, or neurological damage. One of the most common peptides used for pain is Thymosin Beta-4. Numerous clinical trials have shown that this peptide can safely and effectively ease the pain when injected into the problem area.
What Should I Expect During the Peptide Therapy Process?
Some treatments require innumerable diagnostic exams and appointments, but peptide therapy is straightforward to a greater extent. The process starts with an initial consultation that involves a discussion of your symptoms, health history, and therapy goals.
Peptides require a prescription because they come from domestic compounding pharmacies that are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. These prescription peptides may be taken orally via a capsule or dissolvable tablet or injected subcutaneously one time per day. However, in some cases, different dosing schedules are required for ideal results. Some people only need to take peptide therapy five times weekly.
Experiencing the Benefits
Peptide therapy supports your natural bodily processes. Some people can enjoy the benefits of this treatment immediately. Others will feel incremental improvements over the course of several weeks. Increased energy and reduced post-workout recovery time are some of the fastest-developing results.
What’s great about peptide therapy can be used safely and effectively long term. In other words, you can benefit from this treatment for as long as you need to. Although different people will enjoy different results based on their lifestyle choices and genes, the following results can typically be expected:
- Improved mood, sleep, energy, and stamina after 30 days
- Improved nail, skin, and hair quality after 60 days
- Increased fat loss, muscle tone after 90 days
- Drastically improved vitality after 120 to 180 days
An Ideal Solution
While peptides are similar to synthetic HGH (human growth hormones) supplementation, there are distinct differences between these two treatments. HGH therapy replaces your natural HGH production, sometimes resulting in physical dependency. Peptide therapy is far safer because it only restores balance to peptides by replacing what is missing or insufficient.
There is no risk of a physical deficiency. Additionally, HGH therapy can cause undesirable side effects, including limb swelling, joint pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Ideal Peptide Therapy Candidates
Virtually every healthy adult, regardless of gender, can benefit from peptide therapy. Since each treatment plan is tailored to the individual’s unique needs, your body is given all of the tools it needs to operate optimally without covering symptoms senselessly.
While other therapies ease symptoms temporarily and ignore the root cause, peptides improve internal processes at a cellular level. Even though you can’t see these transformations take place at a cellular level, you can see and feel the results of those crucial changes. You will have more energy and mental clarity to face whatever life has in store for you, and you will look healthy and vigorous rather than physically exhausted and dull.
Are You a Good Fit for this Treatment?
Whether you’re looking for a competitive edge in a sport or you’re in your mid-30s and want to slow the aging process, there is a significant chance that you can benefit from peptide treatment. There is an even better chance you can benefit from this treatment if you have noticed any of the following symptoms:
- Extreme fatigue
- Increased visceral body fat
- Increased subcutaneous body fat
- Depression or anxiety
- Decreased stamina and strength
- Muscle loss
- Extreme heat and cold sensitivity
- Reduced libido
- Sexual dysfunction
Not a Fad Treatment
Peptide therapy is not a fad treatment. Peptides have been known to play an important role in health since the advent of insulin therapy in the 1920s. Over 60 peptide pharmaceuticals have received FDA approval over the past century, and clinical trials regarding the safety and efficacy of other peptide drugs have not ceased.
Peptide therapy will continue to be researched and used to improve quality of life because it does not come with the risk of other therapies and the results of treatment are long-lasting and life-changing.
What You Need To Know About Peptides
People often think peptides and proteins are the same. However, despite both being made up of amino acids, peptides are different in that they comprise much shorter amino acid chains. Some of the roles peptides play in your body include:
- Healthy digestion
- Strong metabolism
- Oxygen transportation
Peptides act similarly to hormones, communicating information among tissues via the bloodstream. To maintain homeostasis, including body temperature and healthy digestion, a constant peptide supply is required by your body. Peptides mitigate the risk of disease development by facilitating cellular repair, decreasing the chance of cellular malfunction. Therefore, peptide therapy can be used to reduce the likelihood of illness, not just feel better.
Can Several Peptides Be Taken at Once?
Yes, it is safe to take several peptides at once if you have several issues.
The Comprehensive Solution You Need
Peptides are critical for many bodily processes. When they’re balanced, your mind and body function optimally. Unfortunately, peptides can become imbalanced due to stress, nutritional deficiencies, and the natural aging process. This can cause worrisome symptoms, like brain fog, weight gain, fatigue, and insomnia. Luckily, peptide treatment can restore balance to your hormones, so you can live your best life.
