Unleash The Power of Cellular Medicine

What Are Peptides ?

Peptides are like the body’s messengers, made up of amino acid chains. They send signals to manage growth, metabolism, digestion, and many other functions. Our bodies contain over 7,000 different peptides which impact things like our immune system, energy levels, weight management, brain function, and healing. To put it simply, they are small chains of amino acids. If a compound has fewer than 50 amino acids, it’s a peptide. If it has more than 100, it’s called a protein. Your body is familiar with peptides since it produces them naturally. As a result, they’re typically processed with ease and have very few side effects.

Peptide Therapy

Peptide Therapy is a powerful tool for boosting your health. Think of peptides as helpers that fight aging, illness, and improve overall well-being and physical performance. Unlike many traditional treatments, peptide therapy works in harmony with your body’s natural processes, making it more effective with fewer side effects. We’re excited to offer this therapy to help our clients look and feel amazing.

Enhance Your Body's Defense Against Aging & Disease

Peptides play a key role in our body’s repair and recovery process. Over time, we make fewer of these essential peptides. Peptide therapy tops up these levels, helping to combat aging, decrease inflammation, and maintain a vibrant, youthful feeling.

What Are Peptide Therapy All About ?

Peptides are naturally made by your body, but as we get older or face challenges like stress and illness, the production decreases. Peptide therapy steps in by adding specific peptides to guide your body’s responses. Take Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone (GHRH) peptides as an example. These, along with other GH secretagogues (GHS), encourage your pituitary gland to produce more growth hormone. This hormone is abundant during our younger years, but starts diminishing as we approach middle age, which can lead to typical aging signs. By boosting your body’s growth hormone with peptides, benefits like increased energy, better fat metabolism, enhanced libido, muscle growth, and improved immune function can be experienced, all without the drawbacks of artificial hormone treatments.

Conditions That Can Benefit From Peptide Therapy

Because our bodies naturally make a range of peptides, peptide therapy has demonstrated
potential benefits for several symptoms and health issues, such as:

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on the specific peptides being utilized, peptide therapy may be administered via injections, nasal sprays, oral capsules, or transdermal creams.

For the best outcomes with any treatment, it’s essential to combine it with a well-rounded approach that enhances your lifestyle and eating habits. That’s why our functional medicine team will provide a tailored plan to achieve your goals.

Peptide therapy has minimal side effects because our bodies naturally produce and process peptides. However, there are some potential reactions to be aware of, such as itching or redness at the injection area. Some peptide treatments might also occasionally lead to headaches, swelling in the extremities, anxiety, mood fluctuations, and nausea.

We provide tailored peptide therapy exclusively to members of our program. The reason? We’ve found that peptides work best when combined with a holistic strategy aimed at maximizing your overall health. This holistic approach takes into account aspects like your diet, potential nutrient gaps, hormone levels, detox processes, physical activity, sleep patterns, and mental well-being.

GLP-1 has been shown to be highly effective for weight loss. In clinical trials, patients taking GLP-1 lost an average of 14% of their body weight over 68 weeks, compared to 2.4% for patients taking a placebo. 

Can GLP-1 be used in combination with other medications?

GLP-1 has not been studied in pregnant women, and its effects on pregnancy and the developing fetus are unknown. Women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant should talk to their healthcare provider about the risks and benefits of GLP-1.

It is possible to experience side effects while taking GLP-1, but not everyone will experience them.


It is essential to discuss any concerns or questions about potential side effects with a healthcare provider.

*OUTCOMES CAN DIFFER FOR EACH PERSON. For optimal results, it’s recommended to pair peptides with a lifestyle that prioritizes health. It’s worth noting that these peptides aren’t FDAapproved or regulated. However, some of them are recognized as GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) by the FDA. A U.S. 503A compounding pharmacy specifically compounds these peptides for individual patient use.
