What are peptides?

Peptides can be thought of as messenger molecules made up of small proteins which carry out many functions in cell to cell communication and hormone production. Their popularity is increasing rapidly due to their high potency and specificity of action, safety and low toxicity. These are some of the properties that make them ideal starting points for the development of new drugs and treatments for a variety of issues. 

More than 7,000 naturally-occurring peptides have been identified, however, these have typically been physically unstable, prone to oxidation and expensive to work with, leading them to be largely ignored by the pharmaceutical industry until recently.

Recent advances in technology have renewed interest in peptide therapy however, as lab-made peptides have led to improved stability, transport and bioavailability. As a result, the global peptide therapeutics market is expected to reach over $50 billion by 2024.

What is Peptide Therapy Most Commonly Used For?

Many conditions can potentially be helped by peptide therapy, from autoimmune conditions such as Lupus or cancer, to inflammation, low libido, chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia. The nature of peptide therapy’s actions on many functions of the human body at a cellular level means that a vast number of conditions can potentially benefit.

Peptides in Body Composition, Performance & Bodybuilding

As well as medical applications, peptide therapy has found a home in the world of health and fitness. Here, peptides are used for increasing energy, burning fat, building muscle and improving athletic stamina and ability. While it is possible for individuals to buy peptides online, it is vitally important not to go it alone. Work with a medical clinic that can run the right blood tests and support your health throughout your treatment to avoid potentially serious issues.

CJC-1295/Ipamorelin 

CJC-1295 

CJC-1295 is a peptide hormone that mimics GHRH, a naturally occurring hormone in the human body that is responsible for stimulating Human Growth Hormone (HGH). It does not produce a spike in HGH levels but more simply enhances overall daily production leading to steady increased yet stable levels of HGH. 

The primary benefits of increased levels of HGH are the regulation and promotion of healing and recovery, as well as regulating the metabolism.

Benefits of CJC-1295:

  • A reduction in fat and increased muscle mass and strength
  • Improved joint and connective tissue health
  • Greater exercise performance
  • Better metabolism
  • Greater immune system functionality
  • Higher libido Levels
  • A better mood and overall sense of well-being

If you have experienced a loss of muscle mass, strength and endurance over the last few years, slower recovery and wound healing, and stubborn fat around your waist, it may be worth calling us to discuss CJC-1295

Larry Siegel of Yunique Medical Talks To Ryan Smith of Tailor Made Compounding

If you’re interested in delving much deeper into the use of peptides for optimizing your body composition and performance, this video is a must-watch:

Ipamorelin

Ipamorelin is a secretagogue, it increases growth hormone secretion just like Tesamorelin CJC-1295, and is often used in combination for a tailored approach depending on your body’s needs. Ipamorelin can increase low GH levels when natural GH secretion has been inhibited by long-term abuse of synthetic GH. 

Benefits of Ipamorelin

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

Like all Growth Hormone releasing peptides at Yunique Medical—CJC & Ipamorelin are very safe to use for both short and long periods of time. No users have reported health issues after use of Ipamorelin.

Tesamorelin

Tesamorelin is another peptide that releases Growth Hormone. In clinical trials, It was found to reduce fat accumulated around the waistline for individuals taking HIV medication. Overall, Tesamorelin stimulates the pituitary gland in the brain to secrete growth hormone; this indirect approach appears to maintain more stable, natural levels.

Benefits of Tesamorelin

  • A noticeable and fast difference in fat reduction in specific areas of the body, including mid-section weight
  • Better exercise performance
  • Increased muscle mass and strength
