Peptide Therapies are a popular therapeutic intervention for aging men and women globally. Unfortunately, many people are unfamiliar with the unique benefits certain peptides can have on the human body. Additionally, misinformation has led many to believe that these therapies are only suitable for older patients or those looking to gain muscle mass, like bodybuilders. Neither is true!
Take a look at the different peptides we offer here at the clinic, and what each compound can be used to treat so you can experience optimal health and wellness.

Common Questions about Peptide Therapy
What are the most common benefits reported by men and women? While every patient differs, many experience improved skin tone and appearance, the loss of subcutaneous and abdominal fat, improved sleep, enhanced quality of life, and mental outlook.
- When is treatment for low growth hormone appropriate? When there are signs and symptoms that combined with blood tests confirm low levels.
- Are there symptoms that indicate low growth hormone levels? Yes! Patients may notice a decline in energy, motivation, poor sleep, poor exercise tolerance, and body fat gains.
- What do the therapies for low growth hormone cost? Treatment costs typically $150 to $600/month for some of the growth hormone-releasing peptides (such as Ipamorelin, Sermorelin, or Tesamorelin) and $1200 for hGH itself. These cost ranges are dependent on the prescribed dose as well as the dispensing pharmacy. The growth hormone-releasing peptides can be just as or more effective than its pricier counterpart. Another benefit is that they do not suppress your natural production but rather stimulate you to produce more on your own.
We always recommend consulting with a knowledgeable physician before beginning any treatments. A physician with experience and expertise will be able to guide you during the collective approach to your health based on your symptoms, health history, exam findings, and supporting lab work. As with any therapy, risks vs. benefits should be part of that discussion.

List of Peptides
CJC-1295 and Ipamorelin
The combination of CJC-1295 and Ipamorelin stimulate the cells of the pituitary gland to produce and secrete Human Growth Hormone. These two peptides when used in combination can help induce HGH production naturally, with fewer side effects than synthetic HGH use. This peptide combination can help reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass, improve sleep quality, improve skin health, and increase libido.
Sermorelin is the longest-used growth hormone-releasing peptide. Much like human growth hormone, Sermorelin can help decrease body fat levels, increase lean muscle mass, deepen sleep, improve recovery, increase sex drive, and improve cognition.
Tesamorelin is a very potent growth-hormone-releasing peptides, shown to significantly increase IGF-1 levels. Tesamorelin can help increase energy and stamina, increase lean muscle, decrease visceral and adipose fat, lower inflammatory markers, and improve cognition. Tesamorelin can also help reduce triglyceride levels.
Thymosin Alpha 1
Thymosin Alpha 1 is a natural product of the thymus gland, which is where T cells (immune cells) are matured and released. This peptide is effective in fighting acute and chronic infections. It also has antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties, and can help protect against oxidative stress.
Thymosin Beta 4
Thymosin is a hormone produced by the thymus gland, and it’s critical for a healthy immune system. Thymosin beta-4 plays an important role in repairing damaged tissue and regenerating, remodeling, and protecting damaged or injured tissues.
BPC 157 is a body-protection compound. Research has shown it speeds tendon-to-bone healing and healing damaged ligaments. BPC 157 can also help protect organs and prevent stomach ulcers, and decrease pain felt in damaged areas. For people with muscle tears, sprains, and damage that cause discomfort may benefit from being treated with this peptide. BPC can help in improving burn healing by increasing the flow of blood to damaged tissues.
Human growth hormone (hGH) is made by the pituitary gland and secreted into the bloodstream. Levels fall with age, and they impact how our bodies collect fat and how much lean muscle mass we have. Low levels of hGH can cause lowered libido, fatigue, and reduced bone density.
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is an essential hormone during pregnancy. But it serves other purposes in general health in both genders. For women, hCG injections can help treat infertility. For men, it can help treat increase testosterone levels and treat infertility.
