Hormone Therapy, Medical Weight Loss, Anti-Aging

"I have been a patient with BioSymmetry now for a little over 3 months. My experience has been nothing less than miraculous. I have now started my third month of peptide therapy. Month 1 started with an immediate reduction in minor aches and pains that just would not heal through normal rest and recovery. Workouts became much more efficient almost immediately. Soreness was also reduced from three or four days down to one to two days. Sleep has become more efficient as well. I track my sleep with a fitness tracker and noticed my deep sleep increased dramatically along with my REM sleep. My dreams went back to being extremely vivid and I wake up feeling fully rested ready to tackle the world every day." - Brandon Anderson

Peptides can:

Peptide therapy is relatively new to the United States but has been used in Australia for about 30 years and in Russia for about 50 years. The science of peptides has been around since the 1970's and continues to grow.

Growth hormone is important for growth and development until around 18-20 years of age. After that, it is needed as an adult for cellular repair and healing. As we age, our body begins to produce less growth hormone and thus lowers the ability to repair cell damage, which ultimately contributes to aging.

In a 1990 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Daniel Rudman noted that higher levels of human growth hormone (HGH) in men ranging in age from 61 to 81 conferred significant benefits and slowed the aging process.

Why use a Natural Peptide vs. HGH (Human Growth Hormone)?

Peptide use leads to the preservation of youthful anatomy and physiology without the possible harmful side effects associated with HGH administration. Also, law prohibits off-label use of HGH. The function of natural peptides is to stimulate the pituitary function, and produce more of your natural growth hormone. This increases the safety and minimizes the side effects. Another distinct advantage is cost. Typically, HGH can run $1000/month for treatment; peptides are a much more cost effective option with 3 months costing less than one month of treatment with HGH.

Ipamorelin (nightly sub-q injection)

Biosymmetry offers numerous peptides to help with a variety of needs. The most popular peptide prescribed is a growth hormone secratogue called Ipamorelin. A secretagogue is a substance that causes another substance to be secreted. In the case of Ipamorelin, it causes the pituitary gland to secrete more growth hormone. This peptide is very different from the anabolic agent that body builders use to build muscle. The synthetic version of growth hormone used primarily by body builders can be dangerous because it may shut down the body's ability to produce its own growth hormone. Peptides help to boost the bodies natural ability to produce more of its own. Our pituitary naturally secretes growth hormone in a pulsatile fashion and the largest peak is at night while we sleep.

The Possible Benefits of Ipamorelin/CJC Injections

Ipamorelin and Testosterone Cypionate Together

If you are also experiencing deficiency in testosterone, thus suffering from low t, andropause, androgen deficiency syndrome, hypotestosteronemia or the medical diagnosis of hypogonadism, we can prescribe peptides concurrently with a testosterone program. Our patients report amazing benefits from combining Testosterone and Ipamorelin together.

Reactions to Ipamorelin

THE MOST COMMON REACTION to Ipamorelin therapy is related to local irritation around the injection site, which occurs in around one of every six patients. This irritation is characterized by redness, pain, or swelling. Though this side effect is relatively common, only a small minority of patients find the irritation bothersome enough to suspend therapy. There are other side effects which occurr in less than one percent of patients. These side effects include: severe drowsiness, hives, vomiting, headache, nausea, difficulty swallowing, hyperactivity, chest tightness and pallor, distortion in perception of taste, and flushing of the skin.

Other Peptides

DSIP (Delta Sleep Inducing Peptide): Nightly Sub-Q Injection

DSIP is a unique member of the family of peptide neuromodulators. It exhibits a pronounced stress protective action and decreases stress-induced metabolic and functional disorders.

Prescribed for:

BPC-157 (Body Protection Compound): Sub-Q injections at injury site, or can be taken orally for GI issues

BPC-157 is composed of 15 amino acids. Experimentally, it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damanged ligaments. Additionally, BPC-157 has shown to protect organs and aids in the prevention of gastric ulcers.

Prescribed for:

Thymosin Beta 4 - Sub-Q injection at injury site for 20 days

Thymosin is a hormone secreted from the Thymus gland. Its primary function is to stimulate the production of T cells, which are an important part of the immune system. Thymosin also assists in the development of B cells to plasma cells to produce antibodies. Thymosin works at the cellular level supporting tissue stem cells to heal and regenerate injured tissue.

Prescribed for:

MK-677 (Ibutamoren): Oral tablet taken daily

MK-677, also known as Ibutamoren, is a long-acting secratogue that mimics the growth hormone ghrelin. It has been shown to increase the secretion of several hormones including growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1). MK-677 may also help increase overall sleep quality as it affects REM sleep. This compound is commonly used by bodybuilders to enhance performance.

The future of peptides

As of 2018, there are 60 peptide drugs that have been approved in the United States, Europe, and Japan. Over 150 are in active clinical development. 260 have been tested in human clinical trials (Lau J and Dunn M - Biorganic + Medical Chemistry 26-2018). As the science evolves, Biosymmetry plans to evolve as well.
