Peptides are short amino acid chains made up of 2-50 amino acids, which are the building blocks for proteins like collagen, keratin, and elastin. These naturally occurring substances are the key to a variety of vital processes in the body.
Peptide treatments are not hormones. Instead, they provide a signal to your body to produce more of your own, natural hormones. They can encourage your body to produce new collagen, boost your growth hormone levels, promote angiogenesis or the growth of new blood vessels, among many other benefits.
Peptide therapy is an emerging area of research and generally considered a safe option for many individuals. They can be administered via injection, like a vaccine, or taken orally. The medical providers at Regenics will work with you to help determine the best method and schedule for your peptide therapy. Peptide therapy provides targeted benefits like soft tissue repair or collagen production and also boosts general wellness and vitality.
The Ipamorelin/CJC attaches to the ghrelin receptors on the pituitary gland and encourages the production of growth hormone. Growth Hormone helps boost sugar and fat metabolism, maintain fluid balance, increase muscle development, and regulate sleep cycles.
After one week of peptide therapy, you can expect a better night’s sleep and deeper, more vivid dreams. In two weeks, you’ll notice better workout recovery and fewer feelings of fatigue. By week three, you’ll notice increased mental clarity and sharper recall. One month in, your body will increase collagen production which means more supple, youthful skin. By week six, you’ll notice an increase in lean body mass (more muscle and less fat), ultimately boosting your metabolism.
Ipamorelin and CJC-1295 both increase the production of growth hormone, but they’re more effective together. Ipamorelin starts acting almost immediately while CJC is a slower-release peptide and continues working over a few days. When combined, these two peptides allow for consistent growth hormone production.
Also called ‘body protecting compound’, this peptide chain contains 15 amino acids and is derived from the digestive tract. BPC stimulates angiogenesis, which is the process of creating new blood vessels. With new blood flow, the body is able to repair more effectively, including acute and chronic injuries.
BPC is also used to treat stomach and digestive issues like ulcers, fistulas, and other intestinal or gastric issues. True to its name, BPC is useful for protecting and repairing tissue damage and helping to rejuvenate vital processes in the digestive and circulatory system.
The benefits of BPC aren’t limited to the stomach, as BPC boosts blood circulation and decreases inflammation. This peptide treatment can be used to help you recover from injuries and heal from surgery. After a few sessions, you may notice faster recovery from soft tissue injuries like ligament sprains or muscle strains.
Emerging research suggests BPC can also have brain-protecting benefits and may even defend against Parkinson’s disease. As a “protection compound” BPC can help rebuild and repair the cellular and neuron damage caused by strokes, chronic or degenerative diseases like multiple sclerosis, and traumatic brain injury.
