What Are Peptides and Peptide Therapy?

To put it simply, peptides are messenger molecules composed of small proteins that perform several hormone production and cell-to-cell communication roles.

Scientifically peptide therapy is done by binding peptides to receptors on the cell surface and sending out optimal health improvement messages.

About 7,000 naturally occurring peptides have been identified to date. Since peptides are often found naturally in the body, they are usually very well-tolerated and extremely safe.


Peptides Benefits

Thanks to the advancement of technology and science, the limit of peptide therapy seem to be endless. Here are only some of the benefits that peptide therapy offers.


Weight Loss

5-amino 1MQ is a precious peptide for helping you to cut down on your weight because it allows your body to burn fat for energy while maintaining muscle mass.

Nicotinamide N-methyltransferase (NNMT) is a cytosolic enzyme that controls the cell’s energy balance and the cause of weight gain. 5-amino 1MQ helps you to control the amount of fat produced within the body. While there is still ongoing research on the benefits of this peptide, these are the ones that they found:

  • Improves cellular energy
  • Increases satellite cell production and proliferation, giving you more contractile ability and athletic power as a result
  • Increases NAD+ levels, which is an anti-aging compound
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Lowers cholesterol levels

Increase Muscle Growth

To increase muscle and stimulate your body, healthcare professionals use CJC-1295, a peptide hormone similar to a naturally occurring human hormone that stimulates Human Growth Hormone (HGH). As a result, it provides your body with a handful of benefits, including:

  • Better mood and overall sense of well-being
  • Higher libido levels
  • Better metabolism
  • Reduces fat
  • Improves joint and connective tissue health
  • Better immune system functionality
  • Increases strength and muscle mass


In addition to CJC-1295, ipamorelin also give you various benefits, including:

  • Decreases blood pressure
  • Anti-aging effects
  • Healthy skin, nail, and hair growth
  • Faster weight loss
  • Boosts lean muscle mass growth


Tesamorelin was found to reduce fat accumulated around the midsection; it also:

  • Increases strength and muscle mass
  • Increases exercise performance

Boosting Immune System

Thymosin Alpha-1 (TA1) is one of 40 peptides that can be isolated from thymosin fraction 5, a gland located in cows’ necks.TA1 is distilled into a translucent liquid that is packaged in bottles.

When taken orally, the compound strengthens the immune system and alerts the body to potential threats. The most important immune-boosting effect of TA1 is its ability to enhance T-cells. T-cells in the body are divided into two types: hunters and helpers, and TA1 enhance both. These T-cells and TA1 cells hunt for the corrupted and unhealthy or dead cells that can cause various health problems.

It also offers advantages such as:

  • Kills fungi
  • Decreased fatigue
  • Slows down tumors progression
  • Stops cancerous cells from growing
  • Kills bacteria
  • Optimizes immune cell performance

Besides Thymosin Alpha-1 (TA1), Thymosin B4 is the other biologically active peptide. Tb4 is a calf thymus polypeptide. It also helps tissue and cell regeneration, releasing platelets, macrophages, and various other types of cells to protect your body from further damage and reduce apoptosis (cell death) when you get an injury. Also, it:

  • Enhances collagen deposition
  • Darkens gray hair
  • Promotes hair growth
  • Potent anti-inflammatory for joints, muscles, and wounds
