What are peptides you ask?
Peptides are short sequences of amino acids and can be thought of as small proteins. These peptides act as signaling molecules and produce very specific effects in the cell. Peptide treatments are designed to supplement the decreasing levels of essential amino acids and peptides in the body.
Peptides play a major role in how your body responds to diet and exercise. If the body is not producing enough peptides or essential amino acids, it will not perform at an optimum level. Peptides are involved in hormone production, immune function, sleep wake cycle, decreasing inflammation, cancer cell destruction, sexual arousal, tissue healing, brain function, and much more! Peptide treatments are extremely versatile and have proven to be very effective. At Refine Anti Aging Medicine we use different peptides to improve your overall health and wellness and strive to deliver the best peptide therapy Oakland has to offer. Some of our most popular peptides are Growth Hormone peptides.
Growth hormone serves a vital role in our body and its decline is a key factor in aging. Growth Hormone Peptides signal our brain to increase production of Human Growth Hormone (HGH). This means you make more of YOUR OWN growth hormone NATURALLY! When we increase levels of our Growth Hormone, we see increased metabolism, decreased fatigue, firmer skin and nails, enhanced immune system, better sleep quality, increased muscle mass and bone density. Most Peptides are typically administered through the skin as a subcutaneous injection. Some can also be given in an oral form or nasal spray.
By Age 30, we have a 15 % decline in Growth Hormone levels
By Age 50, we have a 50% decline in Growth hormone levels
Peptide therapy can increase your Growth Hormone levels naturally.
CJC 1295/ IPA is a combination of two peptides used in peptide therapy, CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin, and when used together increases NATURAL Growth Hormone secretion 10 times more effectively than using them individually.
Body Protection Compound 157 ( BPC-157) is a chain of 15 amino acids that has broad anti-aging properties and is involved in healing and repairing damaged tissues.
Thymosin alpha is produced naturally by the Thymus gland, which is large when we are young and breaks down as we age. It is part of a family of biologically active peptides that have a role in immunity.
