From undifferentiated stem cells to powerful platelets and their supercharged growth factors, your body is a veritable warehouse of the best bioactive therapeutics that restorative medicine currently has to offer. Now, you can add peptides to the list.
Recently, there’s been a lot of buzz about peptide therapy in the alternative medicine world, and for good reason — the right blend of peptides can help you reach virtually any health or wellness goal, whether you want to lose weight, improve cognitive function, maximize your performance, or accelerate healing.
Along with IV infusion therapy, prolozone therapy, and PRP injections, peptide therapy is one of the most in-demand restorative medicine offerings at Invigorate Asheville PA in Asheville, North Carolina. Here, seasoned wellness expert Dr. Linda Dula explores the many benefits of peptides and explains how peptide therapy can support a wide range of health goals.
A short tutorial on peptides
Peptides are short chains of amino acids naturally housed in all your cells and tissues. When 20 or more of these amino acid chains bond together, they form a protein. Simply put, peptides are the building blocks of proteins, and proteins are the building blocks of your body.
In addition to the peptides you attain from your diet, your body produces its own peptides to build the various essential proteins it needs to maintain optimal health and function.
Often referred to as “tiny proteins,” peptides play a key role in a wide range of important bodily functions, sending intracellular signals and messages to your brain that support and sustain:
- Immune system function
- Cellular repair and wound healing
- Collagen and elastin production
- Muscle growth and repair
- Metabolism and weight loss
- Cognitive function and memory
- Sexual function and libido
- Balanced mood
- Sleep function
This is just a small selection of the many body functions that depend on peptides, which may act as neurotransmitters or even as hormones to regulate biological processes, carrying vital information through your bloodstream from one tissue to another.
Benefits of peptide therapy
Your body’s production of thousands of distinct peptides have limitless beneficial effects on your health and wellness. Unfortunately, many individual factors, including illness, stress, and aging, can diminish natural peptide production and undermine your health.
And that’s where peptide therapy offers advantages.
Using synthetic peptides that match the exact biostructure, potency, and purity of natural peptides, this innovative treatment meets you precisely where you’re at and helps you get where you’d like to be, no matter what your health and wellness goals are.
Popular targeted peptide therapies at Invigorate Asheville PA include:
Weight loss support
Whether you’re actively trying to lose weight or are just looking for a way to support better weight management, peptides can help. Our fat burner peptide therapies contain a potent mitochondrial peptide called MOTS-c that supports healthy weight loss by improving insulin sensitivity, improving the breakdown of fat for fuel, and increasing your metabolism.
Improved memory care
Several therapeutic peptide blends are designed for enhanced cognitive function and improved memory care. Our “neuroregeneration” therapies often contain DIHEXA, a small peptide that readily crosses the blood-brain barrier to boost synapse formation, strengthen neural signals, improve brain blood flow, and boost memory consolidation.
Whether you’re looking to optimize athletic performance, accelerate your recovery after an intense sports event, enhance your sexual performance, or simply attain the kind of boost that keeps you energized and running on all cylinders, there’s a therapeutic peptide formula to help you reach your goals. Dr. Dula can even prescribe a custom peptide protocol to help you reach multiple wellness objectives at once.
Accelerated tissue healing
Diminished immunity and slower healing are hallmarks of the natural aging process. Peptide therapy can pick up the slack from your aging immune system, using a powerful synergy of cell-repairing, immunity-boosting peptides to help heal wounds and restore healthy tissues faster.
