Peptide Therapy: Ipamorelin
What is Ipamorelin Acetate?
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.
As we age, our hormone levels fluctuate interfering with patient’s overall quality of life. Imbalances can result in loss of energy, increased irritability, sleeplessness, memory problems, and low sex drive. Utilizing peptide therapy separately or in conjunction with hormone replacement may restore optimal hormone levels in your patients. Studies suggest that Ipamorelin Acetate did not affect FSH, LH, Prolactin, or TSH levels. Furthermore, Ipamorelin did not seem to have an impact on cortisol and ACTH levels during GHRH stimulation.
Patient Benefits Over Time May Include:
- Aid in the body’s ability to burn fat
- Helps improve lean muscle mass
- Supports immune system
- Improved sex drive
- Strengthened cardiovascular system
- Improved quality of sleep
- Improved energy and endurance
- Supports bone density
- Improved skin firmness and moisture retention
- Improved cognition and memory

A synthetically produced peptide, CJC 1295 was originally made to treat diseases, but has been discovered to have performance-enhancing effects that appeal to athletes.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
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
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
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
