The Ultimate Guide to Peptides for Weight Loss

December 20, 2021

Are you struggling to lose weight? Have you tried every diet in the world, but still aren’t seeing results? Do you think your age is affecting your metabolism in ways you can’t seem to understand? The bottom line is that aging affects us more than we would like to admit. Even if you are eating a proper, balanced diet, and working out often, naturally occurring levels of growth hormone in your body decline as you age. At Fountain of You MD in Virginia Beach, we specialize in peptide therapy to help people just like you lose weight and feel great!

Peptide therapy is a wonderful solution to increase declining growth hormone levels and to help you lose weight easier! The science behind peptides, like Ipamorelin and Sermorelin, is fascinating. A peptide is a short chain of connected amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins in your body. They can also be viewed as small fragments of protein that perform different tasks during normal body functions. When you train or exercise, your body releases growth hormone on its own without any assistance. As we age, our levels of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) naturally decrease. Peptide therapy prompts your body to increase the production and release of human growth hormone (HGH). The introduction of peptides like Ipamorelin and Sermorelin helps signal changes in your system, including the release of human growth hormone (HGH). This hormone is important for keeping your bones and muscles strong, healing damaged tissue and fighting off diseases. It also has many anti-aging properties, including increasing energy levels, improving skin elasticity, and optimizing mental clarity.

Sermorelin and Ipamorelin act as amplifiers of the naturally occurring human growth hormone — increasing the concentration of growth hormone in your bloodstream so that you experience greater gains in muscle, size, and strength. With peptide therapy, combined with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, your goal weight is much closer than you once may have thought!

With all of this said, peptides have become increasingly popular in improving your energy levels, muscle mass gains, strengthening connective tissue and bone density, improving sexual function (including boosting the sex drive and libido), healing scarred skin, reducing wrinkles and cellulite (both of which are caused by a reduction in HGH), and increasing your lifespan. Peptide therapy increases strength and endurance, improves concentration, reduces body fat through lipolysis, and aids in the development of lean body mass and new muscle cells. Peptide therapy, with Ipamorelin or Sermorelin, accelerates healing from wounds and surgeries. Peptides strengthen the heart, enhance the immune system, improve sleep quality, and increase calcium retention and bone density.

To begin this life-changing journey, we recommend scheduling a consultation with weight loss expert Dr. Jeff Arbuckle in our Hampton Roads anti-aging clinic. Our highly skilled medical support team is here to ensure that you are a candidate for this effective anti-aging and weight loss treatment. Once your blood work and medical history have been reviewed, our clinical team will guide you on how to safely self-administer these peptides from the comfort of your own home. The fastest and most effective way to administer peptide therapy is through a subcutaneous injection, usually in the abdomen. This may sound a little overwhelming, but you have nothing to fear! We can guarantee that you will not leave our office until you are confident with all the information needed to obtain amazing and effective results with peptide therapy. Put yourself first and make your health a priority! You deserve to feel your best and shed that unwanted weight! Call us now to get started or to learn more about peptide therapy 757-644-4615!
