Are you ready to take your health and fitness to the next level? Have you heard about peptides, but been unsure about what they can do for you? Patients at Optimal Health and Wellness in Pasadena, CA, have used peptide therapy for everything from building muscles to improving sexual function. This popular treatment can help you live your best life.
What Are the Benefits of Peptide Therapy?
Peptides can be used for dozens of purposes, but they are most often used by patients looking to shed unwanted fat, build muscle mass, increase libido, and reduce inflammation. Peptides can be used to achieve a host of benefits.
Do you sometimes have trouble concentrating? Are you starting to have difficulty remembering things? Memory loss and a decline in mental focus can both occur when the body is fatigued or as a part of the aging process. Peptides can be used to strengthen the proteins that support brain tissue, making it easier for you to concentrate.
Healthier Skin and Hair
Facial lines and wrinkles and thinning hair often occur as part of the aging process, but peptides can help with those. Peptide therapy can be used to strengthen hair follicles for healthier hair and boost collagen levels to achieve smoother, younger-looking skin. Peptides can also kill the bacteria that causes acne, so if you struggle with frequent breakouts, this treatment may be a solution.
Better Workouts and Speedier Recovery
Better bone density, more developed muscles, and a stronger cardiovascular system can all be achieved with peptides. These improvements can help you work out more efficiently and get better results. You’ll also bounce back more quickly from athletic injuries, surgeries, and other setbacks. Peptide therapy can help you maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.
Naturally Tan Skin
By naturally increasing melanin production, peptides can give you a healthy glow all year long without the need for tanning beds and chemicals.
A gradual decline in sexual performance and enjoyment is another symptom that can creep up on us as we age. It can happen to both men and women, but peptide treatments can help with certain sexual disorders or limitations. These treatments can also help sustain male erections.
Easier Weight Loss
Age-related weight gain happens to just about everyone. As the body’s metabolism begins to slow, it becomes difficult to avoid picking up extra pounds. It can also become difficult to lose weight. But peptides can help by reviving the body’s metabolism levels.
Better, Deeper Sleep
Peptides can also be used to regulate your sleep pattern, ensuring that you’re getting the deep and restful sleep your body needs to function at a high level. You’ll no longer need sleeping pills or sedatives to get a good night’s sleep.
Regular peptide doses can result in a long-lasting boost in your immunity. Your body will more aggressively fight off viruses and bacteria, meaning you’ll stay healthier and will be sick less often.
There’s nothing more frustrating than broken, brittle fingernails. Peptides can improve the health of your nails and increase the rate at which they grow.
Certain peptides can help regulate digestive organs like the stomach and intestines, easing digestion and alleviating gastrointestinal distress.
What Is Peptide Therapy?
Peptides are chains of amino acids that are found naturally throughout the body. They help the cells in our body effectively signal each other, but if peptides are out of sync, bodily functions like digestion, sexual desire, and metabolism can be affected.
Peptides keep our bodies strong and healthy, but they can decline with age. Stress and changes in dietary habits can also interfere with the body’s peptide production. Fortunately, peptide therapy makes it easy to replenish the body’s supply of peptides.
Peptide therapy can take many forms. Injections, oral capsules, dissolvable tablets, and even creams can all be used to introduce synthetic peptides that mimic the natural ones into your system. And there are several different types of peptides, each of which can be used for a different purpose, such as breaking down fat cells or enhancing sexual performance.
Is This Similar to Human Growth Hormone Treatments?
Human growth hormone treatments and peptide treatments are similar only in that they both can be administered in an injectable form and both can strengthen and improve bodily systems. But the treatments involve the introduction of two different things.
Human growth hormone treatments, as the name implies, involve the introduction of growth hormones into the body. Peptide treatments involve the introduction of amino acids and proteins that stimulate the body’s production of human growth hormones.
Are Peptides a New Treatment?
Peptides have been used since the 1920s, so they are not a new treatment. But they’ve exploded in popularity in recent years as they’ve begun to be used for a wider range of health conditions. Several different peptides are used today, and there are even more in development. Patients love peptide therapies because they are a fairly easy and convenient treatment that delivers measurable results. The future of peptide therapies is considered very bright.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
The speed at which your results develop varies depending on what you’re seeking treatment for and the specific peptide used. Patients normally don’t see improvement overnight, but you’ll start to notice changes in your body several weeks after beginning treatment. Your results will continue to develop over the next three to six months.
Is It Ever Used in Conjunction With Other Treatments?
Yes. Peptides can be combined with other health and wellness treatments to augment their results.
Who Are These Treatments for?
You Want To Take Your Workouts to the Next Level
If you want to naturally develop and improve your body without turning to steroids, peptides are an excellent option. They’re safer than steroids, and they encourage your body to rebuild and improve itself naturally, giving your cardiovascular system and joints time to adapt. Athletes who regularly take peptides can work out at a higher level and get the maximum results from their work.
You’re Middle Aged
Because peptides tend to decline with age, it’s not unusual for patients who are middle-aged to start noticing changes in their bodies and search for solutions. But you don’t have to wait until middle age to seek treatment. An adult of any age who has a bothersome condition can seek out peptide treatment.
You Want a Natural Way of Pushing Past Barriers
If you’ve grown frustrated with fatigue, declining muscle mass, inflammation, or other conditions that are holding you back, peptide treatments can help you push past those barriers. Best of all, these treatments can easily be incorporated into your everyday routine without a lot of hassle. Peptide therapy is an easy and convenient way of nudging your body to be its best.
You Want a Custom Treatment Plan
Every patient comes to us with a slightly different blend of concerns, and fortunately, peptide treatments are not one-size-fits-all. We meet with each patient and fully evaluate his or her condition before developing a custom treatment plan. You can rest assured that the peptides we recommend for you will be uniquely suited to address your concerns.
What Does This Therapy Involve?
Peptide treatments are fairly straightforward. During your initial consultation, we’ll talk with you about what’s bothering you and run a blood test that will give us a baseline reading of the levels of hormones and proteins in your system. The results of that test will help us determine whether peptide treatments – and which peptide – will be most helpful to you. In certain cases, we may suggest a combination of peptides.
Will I Be Given Instructions on How to Self-Inject?
If an injectable peptide is recommended for you, we’ll walk you through the process of how to do that. Injections are most often performed in the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm, and it’s generally recommended that you inject in a different location each day.
The best approach is to pinch a couple of inches of skin to inject into. Depending on how much skin you’re able to pinch, you should be able to inject at a 45 to 90-degree angle, removing the needle at the same angle.
Will the Injections Be Painful?
No. The needle used for these injections is quite small, and because it is entering fatty tissue, most patients experience no discomfort.
Do Peptides Need To Be Stored at a Certain Temperature?
It’s a good idea to store peptides in a dark, cool, dry place. Refrigerating them usually offers the best results.
How Often Will I Need To Take Peptides?
Patients usually take peptides in one form or another five to seven days out of the week. Several months of treatment is often necessary to achieve full results.
Is This a Safe Treatment?
Peptides are a safe treatment that offers consistent results. The peptides that are used in treatment, although synthetic, match the peptides that are already in our bodies. That means your system will know how to handle the extra peptides introduced. There are numerous peptides available on the market, and many of them have been approved by the FDA.
What Can I Do To Maximize My Results?
Patients who enjoy the best results have balanced hormones and can commit to a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and a healthy diet.
Is This Treatment Effective for Both Genders?
Yes. Both male and female patients regularly take advantage of these treatments and enjoy great results.
Are Peptide Treatments Usually Covered by Insurance?
Peptide treatments are not always covered by health insurance. You’ll want to check with your carrier to be certain. If you have a Health Savings Account, you should be able to use funds saved in that account to pay for peptide treatments.
What Peptides Does Your Practice Offer?
The roster of peptides we offer includes Thymosin Alpha-1, or TA1 for short, which can bolster the immune system, and BPC-157, a peptide chain that helps with stomach ulcers and intestinal disorders. Melanotan II, also offered your practice, enhances skin pigmentation and stimulates weight loss and sexual drive. Epithalon, another popular peptide we prescribe, offers anti-aging benefits.
