Ipamorelin is one of the most popular anti-aging peptides prescribed today. But you may be asking, “what is a peptide”? Peptides are short chains of connected amino acids and are used throughout your body to signal changes, including hormone production, and healing damaged tissue, in your cells. They also prompt immune cells to fight back against intruders like viruses, bacteria, and certain diseases. Peptide therapy triggers your pituitary gland to produce and release your own human growth hormone (HGH). Peptide therapy increases levels of human growth hormone in the body.

Ipamorelin Can Increase Growth Hormone Levels

Ipamorelin is a growth hormone-releasing peptide, sometimes called growth hormone-releasing hormone. They are the safest ways to increase human growth hormone levels in the body which is why we provide therapy using Ipamorelin in Virginia Beach.

Peptide therapy is used to boost immune system function in immunocompromised cancer patients. There are currently over 60 FDA approved peptide medications and another 140 undergoing clinical trials. Medical use of peptides is proven to be safe and effective, as shown by their popularity.

Enhancements in performance, body composition changes, hormonal Insufficiency, and functional capacity has attracted many in the athletic performance and body-building communities. GHRH peptides soon garnered interest amongst anti-aging researchers and practitioners. Reversal of memory changes and cognitive decline and improvements in body composition, bone density, muscle mass and strength, decrease in body fat, and positive changes in cholesterol profiles have attracted many positive reviews amongst practitioners and patients.

Peptide therapy uses specific growth hormone secretagogues to stimulate your pituitary gland and regulate your immune system. Peptide therapy helps people fight back and decrease symptoms of aging. Peptide therapy has also been used to treat adult growth hormone insufficiency, metabolic disorders, and hormonal disorders.

How Peptide Therapy Can
Improve Your Immune System

Growth hormone has a profound effect on the immune system. Long-lasting boosts of immunity can be a result of your peptide therapy in Virginia Beach. Peptide therapy triggers your immune system to fight against viruses and bacteria. Peptide therapy can improve the immune function of the immunosuppressed and people who have regulated immune systems.

Peptide therapy is a prescription only treatment and requires a visit with a peptide expert like Dr. Jeffrey Arbuckle. Peptides are available in multiple forms, but the most effective is liquid for subcutaneous injection. Once injected, Ipamorelin works in just a few minutes to release human growth hormone from the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is most active while you sleep, so we suggest taking Ipamorelin right at bedtime.

For most people, the loading period, the time it takes to reach maximum effect, for peptide therapy is about 3 to 6 months.

CJC 1295/Ipamorelin
for Men & Women

CJC 1295 is a unique growth hormone that stimulates the release of natural growth hormones within your body. CJC 1295 naturally binds to the receptors for growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) in the brain, specifically within the pituitary gland, to induce the release of new growth hormones. As such, this unique growth hormone can reverse the age-related loss of growth hormones.

CJC 1295 is equally effective for men and women. Studies have shown that it can increase growth hormone levels by 200-1000%, with continued improvements for up to 6 days after one session. This indicates that your body continues producing growth hormones for several days after CJC 1295 is administered, making it suitable for long-term use.

Ipamorelin also stimulates the release of new growth hormones, but it works differently. Ipamorelin mimics ghrelin, one of the three hormones that regulate growth hormone release from the pituitary gland in the brain. In addition to releasing growth hormones, ghrelin also facilitates the breakdown of fat cells and prevents the breakdown of muscles.
