Research in aging and longevity has recently gained intense interest from the media, the public, and scientists all looking to extend the human lifespan. With a focus on keeping the body young and healthy, we’re learning how to not only delay age-related conditions, such as osteoporosis, obesity, and various chronic inflammatory diseases, but to actually reverse aspects of them. The goal is to not only extend the human lifespan, but to keep us young and healthy for life.
Sermorelin and Ipamorelin are two 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.
Sermorelin and Ipamorelin are growth hormone-releasing peptides, sometimes called growth hormone-releasing hormones. Ipamorelin and Sermorelin have been heavily prescribed and are the safest ways to increase human growth hormone levels in the body.
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.
We get asked all the time “does peptide therapy really work”, and the answer is always an astounding YES!

Growth hormone has a profound effect on the immune system. Long-lasting boosts of immunity can be a result of peptide therapy treatment. 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, Sermorelin or Ipamorelin work 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 or Sermorelin 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.
