What are Peptides?
Peptides are small chains of amino acids that serve as signaling molecules, essentially telling other molecules what to do next. They attach to receptor proteins and determine how your cells respond to stimuli. Peptides directly impact many of your body’s most basic functions, including mood, libido, weight fluctuations, and immune regulation. Most notably, peptides play a vital role in delivering anti-aging and antimicrobial properties.
Aging often comes with many undesirable effects on our bodies, including increased fat, decreased muscle mass, and low energy. Some of these issues can be caused by adult growth hormone deficiency. Peptide therapies provide a healthy option to reinvigorate the natural release of growth hormones in the body and reverse the negative effects of aging. CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin are expertly combined, so your body produces a stronger and more steady release of growth hormone. As a result, you experience the following anti-aging, fitness, and wellness benefits:
Builds collagen and reduces wrinkles
Increases fat loss and weight loss
Accelerates healing and recovery
Enhances sleep and mood
Boosts energy level
Improves cognitive function
Increases lean muscle mass
Improves the immune system
Enhances calcium retention to improve bone density
Pentadecapeptide BPC 157, composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) discovered in and isolated from human gastric juice. Experimentally it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments.
Additionally, BPC 157 has been shown to protect organs and aid in the prevention of gastric ulcers. BPC-157 acts systemically in the digestive tract to combat leaky gut, IBS, gastrointestinal cramps, and Crohn’s disease.
This peptide has been known to exhibit analgesic characteristics. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears, and damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide. It can also help to aid skin burns at a faster rate by increasing blood flow to damaged tissues.

PT-141 (Bremelanotide Acetate)
PT-141 is a peptide originally designed as a tanning agent. However, it was soon discovered that it had sexual arousal effects in men and women. Unlike Viagra, Cialis, PT-141 does not target the vascular system but instead acts on the nervous system via the activation of neurons in the hypothalamus to increase sexual desire. The "brain response" makes this treatment so effective at increasing libido and desire for intimacy. PT-141 is injected into the subcutaneous fat using a very small needle (similar to insulin injection) thirty minutes before sexual activity.
Potential benefits to PT-141 are:
Increased libido in women
Enhanced vigor and sexual desire
Elevated degrees of sexual gratification
Strengthened penile erections
Mood enhancement and increased energy levels
Helps with lack of sexual desire in men and women
