What are peptides?
A peptide is a short chain of two or more amino acids that can form a protein. Because peptides are naturally occurring in our bodies, they play an important role in how our bodies function and how we feel.
There are many different peptides necessary for our bodies to function optimally, and each one has its own specific role, ranging from weight maintenance to wound healing, managing gut inflammation, good energy, quality sleep, metabolism, muscle building, and more. Supplementation with peptides is a natural way to boost your body’s own peptide production and address some of life’s ailments that keep us from feeling our best.
There are oral, injection, lotion, nasal spray, and mouth spray forms of various peptides. A few that we are using with success in our practice include:
BPC-157 – helps with tendinitis and musculoskeletal injuries.
KPV – helps with gut inflammation, GERD (acid reflux), SIBO, and candida overgrowth.
AOD-9604 – helps boost metabolism and speed up weight loss.
MK-677 – helps boost human growth hormone levels and improve energy and sleep
NMN – helps boost energy levels and brain health/cognition. It is the oral precursor to NAD+ and is great to use with other NAD+ therapies.
Tesofensine – helps with weight loss and also helps increase the levels of “happy hormones” thereby improving mood.
Many of our patients are already using peptides as part of their overall wellness program, and the feedback is positive.
