Benefits of Peptide Therapy
If you’ve been searching for ways to restore your youthful look and vigor, you may have heard of growth hormone therapy or peptide therapy. Peptides, a natural form of growth hormone, stimulates the pituitary gland to produce more human growth hormone (HGH), so your body can continue to flourish and feel youthful.
As we age, our growth hormone naturally declines and we slowly start to age. HGH is critical when you are a child and helps us to grow tall and feel strong. As a child we also have beautiful hair and our nails constantly need to be trimmed. However, when you are an adult, your body naturally declines or stops producing as much HGH. Without HGH, we experience brittle hair and dry skin, loss of muscle mass, lethargy, poor cognitive function, and slower recovery from injuries, just to name a few.
- Help improve our immune system
- Help us look and feel younger
- Improve workout recovery time
- Boost our libido
- Protect our DNA
- Help us lose body fat
- Reduce inflammation
- Sleep deeper
- Help our brains become sharper
What are peptides?
Peptides are a string of amino acids or the “building blocks of protein.” Peptides are now the number one method for Anti-aging and wellness because they occur naturally within the body allowing them to be effective with very few side effects. As we age, our levels of essential amino acids and growth hormone start to decline causing multiple deficiencies. Peptides work to stimulate your body’s natural production of growth hormone. They have the potential to rewrite bodily chemistry relationships to help with hormone balance. This newly emerging science has the capability of slowing down the aging process, preventing illness, and enhancing peak performance.

What happens to growth hormones as we age?
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.
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.
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.
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.

Types of Peptide Therapy
Ipamorelin Acetate is a Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide (GHRP) that stimulates the pituitary gland within the body to release natural growth hormone (GH). Ipamorelin Acetate is a pentapeptide composed of five amino acids and has a biological half-life of 2 hours after administration. It is widely known for being able to suppress somatostatin or growth inhibiting hormone. Learn More
A synthetically produced peptide, CJC 1295 was originally made to treat diseases, but has been discovered to have performance-enhancing effects that appeal to athletes. The peptide works by increasing protein synthesis and insulin-like growth factor levels. This process enables muscle tissue to grow, thereby increasing muscle mass and function. Learn More
Sermorelin is a peptide that helps your pituitary gland produce more HGH naturally. These injections can reverse or stop many issues that develop due to HGH deficiency. Sermorelin Acetate is a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) that stimulates the pituitary gland to produce and release HGH. Sermorelin Acetate mimics the effects of HGH, but tells the pituitary gland in the body to produce HGH naturally. This means that Sermorelin will have similar effects of HGH, but without the side effects and cost. Learn More
Overall, BPC-157 helps alleviate joint pain, injuries, and those looking to improve joint mobility. It also increases vascular flow to the tendons and ligaments to increase healing. It can also help aid skin burns to heal at a faster rate and increase blood flow to damaged tissues. Learn More
PT-141 was developed from the peptide Melanotan 2, which is a synthetically produced variant of a peptide hormone naturally produced in the body that stimulates melanogenesis that is known as alpha- Melanocyte stimulating hormone. PT-141 has been shown in studies to provide libido-enhancing effects by activating the melanocortin receptors MC1R and MC4R, without tanning the skin. Learn More
Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) analog. GLP-1 is a hormone produced in the small intestine that stimulates insulin secretion and inhibits glucagon secretion, thereby lowering blood sugar. Studies show that semaglutide reduces appetite, improves control of eating, and reduces food cravings in addition to improving glycemic control. Learn More
