Peptides

Peptides are like mini protein chains made up of amino acids. They send signals to specific parts of your body depending on their structure. Peptides also help keep your pituitary gland healthy and influence how your body reacts to diet, exercise, endurance, injury/healing, and overall wellness.

Long term studies are in process and needed to further understand these peptides. Of course, you should never take something if you are allergic to any of its components.

BPC-157 is a daily peptide supplement that supports an active lifestyle and enhances natural healing and recovery processes. This peptide accelerates tissue repair, reduces inflammation, and promotes healing in various tissues, including skin, muscle, bone, ligament, and tendon. By increasing vascular flow to damaged tissues, stimulating collagen synthesis, and decreasing inflammation, BPC-157 aids in recovery from injuries, including muscle and tendon injuries, while also supporting overall joint health. Furthermore, BPC-157 offers benefits for gut healing and protection, making it beneficial for autoimmune disease and gastrointestinal issues.

PRICE:

  • Oral: $100 – 1 month supply

Who should NOT take this? If you have active tumors or cancers, this medication could technically increase blood flow to the tissues which could promote growth.

Potential Side Effect: Generally, well tolerated.

Sermorelin is a growth hormone-releasing hormone analogue, stimulates the production and release of growth hormone, optimizing your weight loss and muscle-building journey while preserving your body’s natural pulsatile secretion pattern. By promoting fat metabolism and preserving lean muscle mass, this peptide aids in weight loss and muscle building, enhancing energy levels, exercise performance, and recovery. Moreover, Sermorelin has been associated with improved sleep quality, cognitive function, and mood, supporting overall vitality and well-being. Additionally, Sermorelin aids in wound healing, promotes lean body mass, reduces fat, and supports better sleep quality by promoting orexin secretion. HIGHLY recommended to take it right before bed. Most growth hormone regulation occurs when we sleep.

PRICE:

  • Oral Troches (dissolvable tablet): $125 – 5 week supply (typical cycle requires 10 weeks total)
  • Injection: $175 – 5 week supply (typical cycle requires 10 weeks total)

Who should NOT take this? If you have active tumors or cancers, this medication could technically stimulate cell growth.
If you have a growth hormone medical condition.

Potential Side Effect: Generally, well tolerated but mild headache/dizziness can occur in some patients.

PT-141 or Bremelanotide is a versatile peptide designed to mimic the hormone melanocortin, for a range of potential benefits, including improved sexual health, weight management, cognitive function, and more. By activating melanocortin receptors in the brain, PT-141 facilitates signals for increased sexual arousal and desire, making it effective in addressing sexual dysfunction in both men and women. Whether injected, dissolved orally, or used in a nasal spray 30-60 minutes prior to intercourse, PT-141 offers a convenient solution for enhancing intimacy and addressing sexual health concerns.

PRICE:

  • Nasal Spray: $185 per bottle (Can last 2-3 months – 25 Doses)
  • Injections: $10 – per Syringe/Dose

Who should NOT take this? Caution individuals with known/uncontrolled cardiovascular disease or uncontrolled high blood pressure.

Potential Side Effect: Generally, well tolerated but mild nausea, flushing and headache in some patients. Increased arousal can lead to increased blood pressure and heart rate.

Methylene Blue is a supplement that offers a unique blend of benefits for both body and mind. With its potent antioxidant properties, it supports cellular health and vitality. Known for enhancing cognitive function, it can sharpen focus and promote mental clarity. Additionally, it aids in mitochondrial function, potentially boosting energy levels.

PRICE:

  • Oral 10mg: $100 – 1 month supply Oral
  • 20mg: $150 – 1 month supply

Who should NOT take this? Those with Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase G6PD Deficiency (can cause hemolytic anemia). Anyone on SSRIs/SNRIs/MAOIs can’t take these as we don’t have all the studies of how they interact so it’s better to avoid the combo to avoid potential serotonin syndrome.

Cautions: Can interfere with thyroid function tests leading to inaccurate results, avoid 5 days prior to labs.

Potential Side Effect: Harmless blue/green colored urine (can be decreased with a Vit C supplement daily). More uncommon side effects are potential for headaches/dizziness/lightheadedness especially if not adequately hydrated and mild stomach discomfort with nausea.

Dihexa is a synthetic peptide known for its potential cognitive benefits by promoting nerve growth factor (NGF) activity, which supports the growth, maintenance, and survival of neurons in the brain. It essentially strengthens connections between nerve cells, potentially leading to improved cognitive function, improved memory, restores synapses in the brain and boosts problem solving skills, speech, and mental stamina. It also improves heart health, insulin regulation and helps manage depression/anxiety.

PRICE:

  • Oral: $100 – 1 month supply

Who should NOT take this? If you are allergic to this medication, otherwise there are no known contraindications.

Potential Side Effect: Generally, well tolerated but mild gastrointestinal discomfort, headaches, dizziness, or allergic reactions in sensitive individuals could possibly occur.

NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a coenzyme involved in numerous cellular processes, including energy metabolism and DNA repair. NAD holds promise for enhancing brain function and combating aging. By supporting cellular energy production, NAD may improve memory, focus, and mental clarity while protecting neurons from oxidative stress and inflammation, key contributors to age-related cognitive decline and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Additionally, NAD promotes mitochondrial health, boosting cellular energy levels in the brain and supporting overall cognitive function. As NAD levels decline with age, supplementation may replenish stores, promote cellular and DNA repair, and activate longevity-associated proteins, contributing to healthier aging. NAD also improves skin health, prevents precancerous skin lesions (AK’s), improves skin damage caused by sunlight exposure, and serves as a co-factor involved in DNA repair. Can help with weight loss, metabolic syndrome, improve lipid profile, exercise capacity, and muscle fiber composition, even in people who live sedentary lifestyles.

PRICE:

  • Injection (once weekly): Starting at $125 per month

Who should NOT take this? Cautions with underlying hormonal imbalances such as Addisons/Cushing’s/ uncontrolled thyroid disease, pituitary disorders, sex hormone imbalance and diabetes as these conditions can interact with how NAD is metabolized and change the effects of NAD supplementation.

Potential Side Effect: Generally, well tolerated but facial flushing, mild GI upset, and occasional dizziness can occur in high doses.
