Growth Hormone Peptide Therapy
The effects of aging hit both women and men in a multitude of ways, and they’re different for everyone. Integrative medicine is a useful paradigm for understanding the individual response to aging to help you handle any disruptive symptoms.
Human growth hormone (HGH) peptide therapy can help you handle disruptive symptoms caused by aging or injury.
What is human growth hormone?
Growth hormone is your body’s repair and regenerate messengers. As levels of growth hormone fall, the resources needed to keep your body in repair fall off. Growth hormones don’t get to all systems the way they did when you were younger.
About the time you reach your 50s, growth hormone release declines. We still make the same amount of growth hormone, but there are fewer pulses for release and throughout the day and the amount of hormone released with each pulse flattens. Both women and men experience this drop-off. This is where growth hormone-releasing peptide (GHRP) therapy helps.
What are human growth hormone peptides?
Medically called growth hormone-releasing peptides, GHRPs are synthetic substances that have a remarkable effect at stimulating the release of growth hormones from the pituitary gland and hypothalamus portions of your brain. As more growth hormones are released, more repair systems can do their work.
Why must other hormones be balanced with GHRP?
Hormones not only work directly with your body’s various systems, frequently they work with each other. The messages of one hormone may start the activity of other hormones.
Though human growth hormones aren’t gender-specific, they may carry messages for estrogen in women and testosterone in men. Since these hormones also decrease with age, boosting growth hormone without balancing sex hormones may have little effect.
What peptides can be used to help me feel better?
CJC-1295 and ipamorelin: Injectable used to increase release of growth hormone.
Ibutamoren: Oral form used to increase growth hormone release.
AOD-9604: Oral form from the fat metabolizing part of growth hormone, and used to target weight loss.
BPC-157: Another peptide with regenerative properties. Synthetically made, but found naturally in gastric juices, BPC-157 has been investigated for healing. Research shows applicability from stomach and intestinal issues to sports injuries.
