Remedium Wellness offers many different types of Peptides to help improve your overall health and wellness. Peptide treatments are designed to supplement the decreasing levels of essential amino acids and peptides in the body. These treatments are extremely versatile and have proven to be very effective.
Peptides have many different bodily functions and their base is amino acids. Certain amino acids are liable for the production of certain hormones and proteins that help our body to function at its finest. Peptides play a major role in how your body responds to diet and exercise. If the body isn’t producing enough peptides or essential amino acids, it will not perform at an optimal level.
Peptides safely and effectively improve and modulate specific parts of the body. This can involve hormone production, immune function, the sleep cycle, the production of inflammatory mediators, DNA replication, cell division and renewal, cancer cell destruction and apoptosis, libido and sexual arousal, tissue healing and the specific biological functioning of the brain, skin, eyes, urinary, and reproductive systems.
Hormone therapy and optimization has been big for anti-aging medicine. However, it is being understood that the master controls of many functions of the body, including hormone production, are regulatory peptides. It has also been said that peptide signaling molecules generally have a more rapid response and less side-effects when compared to hormones.
Some of the more popular peptides that cover the gambit of anti-aging and regenerative medicine are:
AOD + HA
AOD was originally studied for weight loss, but instead has found a new role in helping repair cartilage in any intra-articular space. It is thought to activate the body’s own active stem cells that are found in adipose tissue. We have found that most doctors experience similar results to prolotherapy or proliferation therapy.
Pt 141 is a drug that was originally created in the hopes of solving female sexual dysfunction. What they found was that by stimulating the melanocortin receptors in the arcuate nucleus of the brain is that it works to stimulate sexual arousal for both men and women. It especially works in men, providing spontaneous erections that require no psychological stimulus. This is also a great therapy, because it doesn’t work like any other product for erectile dysfunction. It works directly in the brain, instead of working to relax blood vessels like other PDE5 inhibitors. Unfortunately, nausea can be experienced by some people when dosed too high.
Cerebrolysin is a peptide for the brain, which stimulates repair and regeneration of some neurons and parts of the nervous system. It improves efficiency within the brain’s aerobic metabolic processes and improves intracellular peptide synthesis. The neuroprotective properties of this nootropic agent help to shield neurons from lactic acidosis, to prevent formation of free radicals, and to decrease neurotoxic action of certain amino acids. The end result is that it’s a powerful brain activator and can also help prevent and alleviate the symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia.
Follistatin is an irreversible myostatin inhibitor. In essence, this peptide prevents the breakdown of muscle tissue, which allows adipose tissue, or fat tissue, to be more selectively targeted for energy reserves. This causes an increase in lean muscle mass and a decrease in fat tissue. Overall, this creates a very attractive combination for changing body composition. It must be used sparingly, so that tendons and ligaments have time to adjust to more muscle strain and stress.
Epitalon is a peptide that works in the pineal gland in the brain. It is most well-known for its telomerase activity; showing a 33% increase in telomere length in somatic cells. Additionally, it has many documented effects on general aging and impacts on the circadian rhythm. It helps to regulate levels of melatonin and cortisol. This means that it makes sure that cortisol is elevated in the morning and melatonin is elevated in the evening. This natural cycle promotes healthy sleep cycles and makes sure that cortisol and other stress hormones are not elevated throughout the day, which can lead to excess abdominal weight gain.
This particular peptide in the Thymosin family is an excellent immune modulator. It works directly in T-cells to increase response to any viral load. Most often, this is given for chronic viral diseases, but has also been shown to increase innate immunity to other factors and help modulate cytokines involved in harmful autoimmune processes. It is the peptide that is most often given to help diminish inflammation associated with chronic disease processes, which can cause excess fatigue.
BPC stands for body protection complex. It was discovered in and isolated from the human gastric tract. Experimentally, it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears, and damage may benefit from this peptide treatment. Additionally, it has been shown to reduce inflammation in the gut often associated with diseases like leaky gut syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease.
