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.

In our clinic, our patients have had tremendous results losing weight using the peptides Sermorelin, Ipamorelin, and CJC-1295. Peptide therapy is so successful because peptides are already used by the body as biological messengers. The body is not subjected to a foreign

Peptides and Your Immunity

As the coronavirus continues to spread, you may be looking for ways to strengthen your immune system and improve your health. While social distancing and frequent handwashing is still the best option, you can take steps to boost your immunity in case you are exposed. In addition to proper nutrition, peptide therapy may be the solution you need.

What are peptides?
One of the newest areas of study in immunology is peptides. Peptides are short chains of connected amino acids, which make up proteins. These chains of amino acids are used throughout your body to signal changes in your cells. They attach to receptors on the outside of cells and tell them what to do, such as produce hormones or heal damaged tissue.

They also play a role in your immune system, prompting immune cells to take action against intruders. Peptide therapy has been used and studied in boosting immune system function in cancer patients who are immuno-compromised. In fact, there are more than 60 FDA approved peptide medicines and 140 currently in clinical trials. Peptides as medicine are becoming more and more popular as they are proven safe and effective.

How does Peptide Therapy work?
Peptide therapy uses specific growth hormone secretagogues to stimulate your pituitary gland and regulate your immune system. These peptides are naturally found and produced in your lymph system and in your thymus, both of which are involved in fighting illnesses. You can take these peptides via injection, pills, creams or nasal sprays, depending on how the peptides work and what they are meant to do.

Our most commonly used peptides are Sermorelin, Ipamorelin, and CJC-1295. These growth hormones “boosters” are naturally found in the human body. Growth hormone has a profound effect on the immune system and function. Regular injections of peptides provide long-lasting boosts to immunity. Once the peptides are in your body, they prompt your immune system to fight foreign invaders like viruses and bacteria. If you are immunosuppressed, your immune system is weakened at all by illness or aging, peptide therapy may help get it back up to normal strength. It can also help people who have a normal immune function.

Peptide therapy has a profound effect on the immune system and function. Patients also report increases in lean body mass, decreases in fat mass, and anti-aging benefits.
