HGH Peptides &
Anti-Aging Treatments

Peptide Treatment for Women in Massachusetts

As you age, your body and your brain experience symptoms that you probably don’t want. These include weight gain, wrinkles, loss of libido, fatigue and memory loss. Much of this unwanted change is a result of your body failing to produce human growth hormone (HGH) the way it used to.

The good news is that we can now stimulate the production of important hormones like HGH through anti-aging treatment using HGH peptides. Keep reading to learn how peptides work and how they might help you look and feel younger and healthier.

Anti-Aging and Human Growth Hormone

As you age, your production of HGH declines naturally, dropping 14% to 15% every decade beginning in your 30s. Because of this, your body’s performance in all areas starts to decline as well and you show signs of age.

Peptides have attracted the interest of anti-aging scientists because they show strong benefits in everything from body composition and cholesterol levels to cognitive decline and hormonal insufficiency.

Peptides are essential proteins that form chains of amino acids that perform the functions of hormones or neurotransmitters within the body. They’re vital to the health and production of body tissues, DNA and hormones. Among their many functions, peptides can stimulate your body’s production of HGH to help push back the signs of aging.

What Is Peptide Therapy?

Peptide therapy stimulates your pituitary gland, causing it to release HGH naturally. This additional HGH in your system helps push back the signs and symptoms of aging. Peptide therapy is also used to treat metabolic disorders, hormonal insufficiency in adults and various hormonal disorders.

When you embark on peptide therapy, the goal is to stimulate your body to produce the hormones that you produced naturally when you were younger. By bringing these hormones up to normal and safe levels, your body is better able to function in an optimal manner. Many people find that their bodies maintain healthy HGH levels even after they complete their peptide therapy.

Peptides are beneficial to the immune system without any associated risk of diabetes and stroke. They can also boost metabolism, energy levels, sex drive and mental clarity. In addition, they help the body get rid of excess fat and inflammation. Peptide therapy is also used to boost the immune system in cancer patients who have become immunocompromised.

Among the most popular peptides for anti-aging are ipamorelin, CJC1295 and sermorelin. These are all growth hormone-releasing hormones that boost the natural production of HGH by the pituitary gland. They’re only a few of the more than 60 peptide medications officially approved (with more than twice that number being
investigated as of 2022 for future approval).

Peptide therapy is proven safe and effective. However, there are a few situations in which people should avoid peptide therapy. Anyone with cancer should avoid stimulating HGH because human growth hormone also stimulates cancer cell production. Pregnant people should avoid peptide therapy, as should anyone taking thyroid medication or corticosteroids.

Questions about Peptide Therapy?

We have answers

Peptide therapy works by stimulating growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) in the hypothalamus in the brain. GHRH then stimulates the pituitary gland to produce more HGH at higher rates. When HGH is released into the bloodstream, it moves throughout the whole body to decrease and even reverse the effects of aging. Typically, this production of HGH occurs during deep sleep.

Once HGH is released into the body, it works to stimulate the growth of bones and cartilage. It provides extra energy to the body, and it strengthens the immune system.

HGH also helps your body build lean muscle while burning fat. This function of HGH is tied up with its stimulation of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), which speeds up your metabolism. That boosted metabolism results in greater energy levels, greater endurance and easier weight loss.

Peptide therapy can benefit almost every part of your body that’s affected by aging. Among the benefits of peptide therapy are:

  • Decreased body fat. Peptides boost the metabolism of fat, helping your body break down fat through lipolysis and burn carbohydrates more efficiently, resulting in weight loss.
  • Increased stamina and endurance. This includes an increase in your exercise tolerance, a lessened need for rest during exercise and an overall boost in energy levels and vitality. You can expect stronger workouts with faster recovery.
  • Increased muscle mass. By helping your body produce new muscle cells, peptide therapy increases your overall muscle mass, tone and definition.
  • Improved natural healing. If you experience a wound or undergo surgery, you can expect faster and better recovery of injuries to muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons.
  • Boosted immune system. Peptide therapy enhances the immune system, helping it fight off infection, disease and inflammation so that you’re less susceptible all around and have greater immune response when needed.
  • Improved sleep. Poor sleep exacerbates the aging process in many ways while also resulting in mood swings, poor cognitive function, weight gain and fatigue. Peptide therapy restores your sleep cycle and stimulates deep sleep so that your brain relaxes overnight and you feel fully rested every morning.
  • Boosted libido. Aging takes a toll on your sex drive — and peptide therapy can help reverse it.
  • Improved skin. Age can affect the skin drastically for many people, with wrinkles, lack of muscle tone, uneven pigmentation and lack of elasticity causing you to look older than you are. Peptide therapy improves muscle fullness, eliminates crepey skin and promotes elasticity of the skin.
  • Improved hair and nails. Along with improvements in the skin, peptide therapy helps nails and skin become healthier and stronger.
  • Increased bone density. Women in particular are at risk for osteoporosis and loss of bone density as they age and move through menopause. Peptide therapy helps prevent the development of osteoporosis.
  • Reduced inflammation. Gastrointestinal and musculoskeletal inflammation are responsible for many of the aches, pains and discomfort you feel while aging. Peptide therapy can do away with the inflammation at the core of these issues.
  • Improved mental clarity. The “brain fog” that comes with aging dissipates with the use of peptide therapy.

Anti-aging peptide therapy can be administered via injection or orally. However, many anti-aging specialists believe that the injected forms of peptide therapy are more effective than oral administrations.

You can administer peptide therapy injections yourself using a tiny needle, similar to those used for insulin injections. These injections are typically administered under the skin once a day. They’re given at nighttime to mimic the natural release of HGH in younger people, which occurs during sleep.

Once liquid peptides are injected subcutaneously, they begin to work within a few minutes, stimulating the release of HGH from the pituitary gland.

While peptide therapy goes to work within minutes inside your body, you aren’t likely to see visible results quite as quickly. Most people need to take peptide therapy for 6 months to see the full effects, but some results will start to make their appearance much sooner. In part, the speed at which you see effects depends on your own physiology, the aging issues you’re dealing with, and the treatment methodology and dosage that your doctor calls for in your customized anti-aging treatment.

By the end of your first month, you should see your energy levels starting to rise, with improvements to your stamina and endurance as well. You can also expect to experience sleep that’s deeper and more restful.

Moving into the second month, some changes to your metabolism should start to kick in. As your metabolic rate rises, expect to see a decrease in abdominal fat as well as an improvement to your overall muscle tone. The effects on your skin start to make themselves known now as well. Your hair and nails should grow faster, and you may see a decrease in wrinkles as well as better skin tone overall.

As you move into your third month, expect to reap benefits in your mental and emotional health. Your mental clarity should improve, and you may find yourself more energetic and motivated — including in the area of sexual health, as your sex drive is likely to receive a boost now. In addition, you should feel stronger in your joints.

These benefits continue into months four and five, with mental clarity continuing to increase and fatigue decreasing. Expect continued loss of weight and abdominal fat, with a related increase in lean muscle mass. Your skin tone, elasticity and texture will continue to improve, and your hair will continue to get healthier.

As you reach the probable end of your peptide therapy treatment in the sixth month, you should have experienced a 10% decrease in body fat along with a 10% increase in lean muscle mass. You should feel stronger and more vital overall, in addition to looking younger.
