What is The Best Peptide for Weight Loss?

As you age, it can be difficult to keep off weight. Your metabolism slows, your hormone levels drop and your overall physiology changes. These changes make maintaining weight hard but make losing weight on your own an extremely difficult challenge..

At Fountain of You MD in Virginia Beach, VA, we offer personalized weight-loss support programs. For many patients, we recommend peptide therapy as a key way to change your body and get rid of fat.

What are peptides?

Peptides are short chains of amino acids (the building blocks that make up the proteins in your body). They are naturally occurring and are used throughout your body to signal and activate changes. Peptides play a beneficial role in a wide range of bodily functions, including weight loss, regulating blood sugar, hormone production, immune function, and inflammation control.

What is peptide therapy?

Peptide therapy, also known as growth hormone replacement therapy (GHRT), has been embraced by many age management practitioners as one of the most effective methods for overall wellness and anti-aging. Growth hormone-releasing peptides (GHRP), like Sermorelin and Ipamorelin, have been proven to slow hormonal failure and boost immunity. By stimulating the pituitary gland, these peptides increase the natural production of human growth hormone (HGH), which directly affects your metabolism.

Some prescribers prefer to use topical creams, nasal sprays or oral medication, but we have found intradermal injections to be the most effective form of administering peptides.

Currently, there are over 60 FDA approved peptide medications and another 140 in clinical trials. Peptide treatments are a less invasive option of treating osteoporosis, neuropathy, Lyme disease, chronic inflammation, autoimmune disease, and other chronic degenerative diseases.

Do You Need Hormone Replacement Therapy?

As we age, both men and women begin to have lower levels of hormones that affect different aspects of their health. Women may have lower levels of estrogen and progesterone, while men have lower levels of testosterone.

Hormone replacement therapy can help rebalance hormones and help you feel younger again. You might benefit from hormone placement if:

You Have Symptoms of Low Hormone Levels

As hormone levels drop, both men and women may begin experiencing health problems. Common symptoms of low hormones are:

  • Lack of sex drive
  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue or lack of energy
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Pain during sex or trouble with sexual performance
  • Disturbed sleep

These symptoms can have far-reaching impacts on your mental health, your heart health and even your bone and muscle health.
Men might have additional symptoms, such as:

  • Thinning hair
  • Loss of endurance or strength
  • Depression
  • Trouble recovering from injuries

Women may also have different symptoms such as:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Mood problems

If you are experiencing multiple symptoms of low hormone levels and these symptoms are affecting your quality of life, you should speak to your doctor about hormone replacement therapy.

You Are Aging
Even men and women as young as in their 30s may begin experiencing low hormone levels. Women typically see large drops when they are approaching menopause in their 40s, but men can see drops at any time.

For women, hormone replacement therapy is safest and most effective when started before age 60 or within 10 years of menopause. The average onset of menopause is age 51, so many women will benefit then or even a few years earlier.

You Need Help Preventing Health Problems

Women may be at increased risk of bone loss after menopause. If you are a woman with a family history of osteoporosis, hormone replacement therapy can help prevent fractures that could limit your independence.

You Are Otherwise Healthy
Hormone replacement therapy may increase your risk of heart problems or stroke. That’s why you need to stay active and eat well to keep your heart healthy. Your doctor may not recommend hormone replacement therapy if you have a significant family history of heart problems.

Fortunately, your doctor can adjust your hormone dose and how you receive hormones to improve the safety of your treatment.
