What Are The Different Types Of Peptides?
Peptide therapy is the future of regenerative medicine. There are over 56 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.
Frequently Used Peptides
BPC–157 is a peptide that is a partial sequence of body protection compound that is derived from human gastric juice. Research shows that BPC–157 heightens the healing of many different types of tissue from tendon, muscle, and the nervous system.
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.
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.
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.
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.
AOD can stimulate the pituitary gland which can speed up metabolism and burn body fat. Users may start to notice results in as early as two months. Overall, the results will be contingent upon factors such as working out regularly and following a dietary plan.
TB-4 or Thymosin Beta-4’s
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.
TA-1 Thymosin Alpha-1
TA-1 Thymosin Alpha-1 is responsible for restoring immune function and helps regulate the immune response. This peptide is responsible for stimulating the immune system to seek out and destroying bacterial, fungal, viral infections, and tumor cells.

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.
