Peptide Therapy

Here at Apollo, we are eager to provide you with the most exciting and innovative therapies around. So let’s talk about one of our favorites: peptides!

Peptides are more common than people think (ever heard of insulin? Yep it’s a peptide!) Peptides are short chains of small proteins that send messages and signals to our cells to produce hormones and neurotransmitters. They have gained significant attention in recent years due to their potential therapeutic benefits and overall safety. As of 2015, there are over 60 FDA-approved peptide medications (like insulin), 140 peptide drugs being evaluated in clinical trials, and 500 in pre-clinical development.

As we age, our production of peptides and hormones decreases. This results in our bodies showing signs of aging and ceasing to perform at an optimal level.

Peptide medications are usually administered subcutaneously, but here at Apollo, we can also use some peptides in the form of skin creams, nasal sprays, and oral tablets.

Here are some benefits of Peptides

Increases Energy

Another benefit of peptide therapy is that it can increase energy levels. Peptides can help to improve the function of mitochondria, which are the parts of cells that produce energy. This can lead to improved energy levels and greater overall vitality.

Improves Cognitive Function

Peptide therapy can also help to improve cognitive function. Peptides can help to increase blood flow to the brain, which can improve memory, concentration, and overall mental clarity. Peptide therapy can be especially helpful for people with age-related cognitive decline or neurological conditions.

Weight Loss

Peptides like glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) can help with weight loss by regulating appetite and increasing feelings of fullness. They slow down the rate at which food leaves the stomach, reducing the desire to eat and helping to control food intake. Other peptides help increase lipolysis (fat loss) and reduce visceral fat (a leading contributor to declining health!).

Boosts Immune Function

Peptide therapy can also help to boost immune function. This is because peptides can help to stimulate the production of white blood cells, which are the cells that fight off infection and disease in the body. Peptide therapy can be especially helpful for people with autoimmune diseases or chronic infections.

Muscle Growth and Repair

Peptides, like growth hormone-releasing peptides (GHRPs) and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), stimulate muscle growth and repair. They increase protein synthesis and enhance the production of new muscle cells, helping to build lean muscle mass and improve recovery after exercise. Others like BPC-157 are excellent for tissue repair after injuries or surgical procedures, and repairing leaky gut.

peptides have a wide range of potential therapeutic benefits

making them an exciting area of research and development in medicine, and a great addition to your health optimization plan.
