Peptide Therapy

Home / Solutions / Peptide Therapy

Amino acids in a long chain are called proteins. But amino acids in a short chain held together by “peptide” bonds are called peptides. Peptides work by activating various receptors throughout the body, causing the release of hormones that influence your health, body composition, and exercise performance and recovery.

Researchers have developed the Peptide Theory of Aging based on the power of peptides. The Peptide Theory of Aging says aging is inevitable due to changes in the expression of specific genes. Impaired production of regulatory peptides results in structural and functional changes in cells, which initiate the development of chronic diseases. Correspondingly, correcting such disorders by administering these peptides promotes the normalization of disturbed body functions and the reversal of aging.

Peptides have some remarkable effects on aging. Peptides exert their anti-aging influence through various mechanisms. Peptides increase antioxidant enzyme activity, reduce inflammation, increase advanced glycation product removal, increase expression of 5-HT receptors, and regulate the gut microbiota, just a few functions of the peptides. Peptides affect blood pressure, cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, muscle, bone, and aging.

Peptides Therapy

There are many peptides available for a variety of therapies. Although the FDA has recently been limiting the use of these peptides, their effectiveness and safety have been proven repeatedly in studies.

CJC 1295

CJC 1295 is a peptide that stimulates growth hormone secretion and keeps a steady increase of HGH and IGF-1 with no increase in prolactin, leading to fat loss and increased protein synthesis and muscle growth. CJC 1295 outperforms the older and outdated GHRH, Sermorelin.

Suggested dosage: CJC 1295, 2000mcg/ml subcutaneous injection provided in a 2ml vial, inject 0.10ml subcutaneously 5 out of 7 nights of the week before bedtime on an empty stomach.


Ipamorelin is a peptide and acts as a selective growth hormone secretagogue and ghrelin receptor agonist. This peptide stimulates the pituitary gland to release more growth hormone when injected. Growth hormone in adults is responsible for the regulation of our metabolism.

Suggested dosage: Ipamorelin, 2000mcg/ml subcutaneous injectable provided in a 5ml vial. Inject 0.10ml subcutaneously once daily, 5 out of 7 days a week. We suggest using the Ipamorelin in combination with CJC 1295 as it provides a synergistic effect, generating five times the benefits of using the CJC 1295 or Ipamorelin alone.


Bremelanotide (PT-141) is a peptide that increases sexual arousal in women and spontaneous erections in men. This peptide, PT-141, has been targeted as an effective medication in treating sexual dysfunction in both men (for erectile dysfunction) and women (for sexual arousal disorder).

Suggested dosage: PT-141 10mg/mL in a 2mL vial, inject 0.1-0.2mL subcutaneously as needed, 30 minutes before sexual activity.

Semaglutide (Ozempic)

This peptide is a combination of GIP and GLP-1 receptor agonists that activates the body’s receptors for GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) and GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1), making this peptide the most effective weight-loss drug in clinical use.

Suggested dosage: Semaglutide 5mg/mL in a 2mL vial: Start by injecting 0.1mL subcutaneously once a week, increasing to obtain weight loss up to 0.5mL weekly


BPC 157 is a peptide that helps heal tissues, such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, bone, organs, skin, and the nervous system faster by increasing blood flow to damaged tissues—often given to patients as a method of growing healing, such as after a physical trauma or surgery.

Suggested dosage:
Injection: BPC-157 2000mcg/ml, 0.15ml injected subcutaneously daily for 30 days.
Capsule: BPC-157 500mcg capsules – Take one capsule orally once daily for 30 days.
Spray: BPC-157 500mgs in 2 sprays – Use two sprays into the mouth once daily for 30 days


Epithalon is a peptide which increase the natural production of telomerase, a natural enzyme that helps cells reproduce telomeres, which are the protective parts of our DNA, with an increase in telomere length up to 33%.

Suggested dosage:
Sublingual Troche: Epithalon 3mg/NAD 250mg inside cheek daily
Epithalon Nasal Spray 300mcg/ml – 1 spray into each nose daily
Epitalon Injections: 3mg/mL (Vial 5mL) – Inject 0.1mL intramuscularly every day for 50 days, repeat every 6 months for 3 years

Synapsin RG3

Synapsin is an innovative, patent-pending powder blend of ginsenoside Rg3 and nicotinamide riboside along with components to aid in solubilization and dispersion. It is used to support neurological health, cognitive health, and healthy mitochondrial function.

Suggested dosage:
Synapsin RG3 (2mg) / Nicotinamide Riboside (50mg) w/B12 (2mg) Nasal Spray 30ml Bottle – Use 1 spray each nostril daily

What to Expect from Peptide Therapy

The response of the peptide is dependent on the function of that peptide. Our providers have more than a decade of experience utilizing peptides. Peptide therapy is remarkable when used for the right reason, on the right patient, and at the right time.

Precautions on Peptide Therapy

The major precaution our providers express to patients is when using peptide therapy, start low and slowly increase the dosage until we see the effect we want or a side effect we do not want. We rarely see allergic reactions to peptides, as they are a common component of every person’s hormone system. However, we caution patients on the use of peptides on continuous prolonged periods of time because the body can adapt to the constant peptide signal by downregulating the receptors. So, almost all peptides are given in a manner where you take a break a few times a week or a few months a year.

Possible Side Effects of Peptide Therapy

As with any injection, side effects include pain, itching, or swelling at the injection site. Serious side effects are unlikely because the peptides injected are similar (bioidentical) to those found naturally in the human body.

When to See a Doctor for Peptide Therapy

Our providers are here to answer your questions about peptides and their impact on aging. You should see a doctor regarding which peptides are appropriate for you. In the event that life-threatening symptoms arise, call 911 or seek medical care from your nearest emergency department.
