WHAT ARE PEPTIDES?
Peptides are short-chain amino acids found naturally in the body. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and these particular amino acids are designed to augment specific functions within the human body.
Therapy with peptides uses those sequences already present to regulate and rejuvenate functions, basically, they bind to and tell other cells what to do, replacing or mimicking the functions of naturally occurring peptides. Peptides have the capability to utilize body chemistry relationships to promote restoration, anabolism, and homeostasis. Peptides can act as messengers that relay information or transport materials into cells. i.e. peptides can transfer glucose from blood into the cells to be used as energy.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PEPTIDES?
Peptide therapy is the future of regenerative medicine. There are over 60 FDA approved peptides on the market. Peptides are commonly used in everyday medical therapy such as Lisinopril, which is used for hypertension and insulin, used to control blood sugar and diabetes. Peptides are used to help increase HGH or human growth hormone production, promoting healing within the body. In addition to that, there are other peptides for gut health, for brain health, immune-boosting, sexual dysfunction, erectile dysfunction, and many more. At Revelry Wellness Male, we focus on a few key peptides such as Sermorelin, Ipamorelin, CJC 1295, BPC-157, AOD, TA1, and TB4.

If you have any questions, we always recommend that you schedule a consultation with our Certified Peptide Specialists at one of our many locations to determine out if peptide therapy right for you. At this time, Revelry Wellness Male does not offer telehealth and we only treat from our clinics.
Peptide Therapy Treatment Options
Peptides continue to grow in many treatment aspects including weight loss (muscle preservation), immune system issues, growth hormone, and overall skin care, anti-aging.
HGH Peptides Ipamorelin
Composed of five amino acids, Ipamorelin is a growth hormone secretagogue that stimulates the pituitary gland to release more growth hormone. Ipamorelin helps your body burn fat and recover from workouts sooner. And if you add exercise to your routine, you can lose weight at a faster rate. Ipamorelin also includes anti- aging properties, helps improve your sleep cycle, and can enhance your immune system.
Overall, BPC-157 helps alleviate joint pain, injuries, and those looking to improve joint mobility. It also increases vascular flow to the tendons and ligaments to increase healing. It can also help aid skin burns to heal at a faster rate and increase blood flow to damaged tissues.
Another powerful growth hormone-releasing peptide is Sermorelin. Just like Ipamorelin, Sermorelin is a growth hormone peptide, but it works differently in the body than Ipamorelin (stimulating GHRH instead of ghrelin) to accomplish the same thing – stimulating growth hormone release from the pituitary gland.
PT-141 works directly through the nervous system to increase arousal, desire, and satisfaction with sex. Treatments like Viagra and Cialis work through the vascular system and only give you the ability to achieve an erection. However, PT-141 gives you the desire and motivation along with the ability to achieve an erection, returning the intimacy and passion to your relationship.
CJC 1295 is a GHRH (growth hormone-releasing hormone) analogue and is very effective at increasing growth hormone secretion and IGF-1. CJC 1295 allows the anterior pituitary to follow the natural, pulsatile release of growth hormone without an increase in appetite stimulation, cortisol, acetylcholine, prolactin, and aldosterone. Typically, you will see CJC compounded with Ipamorelin due to its ability to stimulate GHRH for enhanced results.
HGH Peptide Therapy can be used in conjunction with other peptides as well as other therapies such as Testosterone Replacement Therapy or erectile dysfunction treatments to enhance and increase your results.
TB-4 or Thymosin Beta-4’s primary function is to promote healing in tendons, ligaments, muscle, skin, heart, and eyes. This peptide is naturally produced in larger concentration where tissue has been damaged.
How are Peptides Administered?
Many peptides are administered through subcutaneous injection, some can also be taken orally or topically. The frequency and dosage vary from peptide to peptide.
Are Peptides Safe?
Peptides have a very high safety factor and are well-tolerated by patients as they are not something new to our bodies. Peptides have the potential to be the future of regenerative medicine and are dramatically changing the lives of those seeking longevity and well-being.
HGH is human growth hormone. There are peptides that support the production of HGH. In short, peptides are not HGH.
It really depends on the individual peptide being used and the treatment it’s being used for. While peptides are generally considered safe, each individual peptide has mild potential side effects.
