WHAT ARE PEPTIDES?
Peptides are short-chain amino acids found naturally in the body. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and these particular amino acids are designed to augment specific functions within the human body.
Several of these peptides, Sermorelin, Ipamorelin, and CJC-1295 stimulate the body’s release of growth hormone. This maintains the appropriate pulsatile release of growth hormone, as well as the negative feedback loop that prevents the levels from becoming too high. The result is optimal release.
Benefits may include:
• increased muscle mass, strength, and endurance
• decreased belly fat
• increased energy and emotional stability
• improved sleep
• improved memory
• improved sexual function
• increased skin collagen, elasticity and texture,
• increased bone density,
• improved wound healing
• improved immunity
• improved cardiovascular function and lowered blood pressure
• increased HDL [high-density lipoprotein cholesterol] and lowered LDL [low-density lipoprotein cholesterol]
PT-141, also known as Bremelanotide, is a peptide that improves sexual arousal and erectile dysfunction. It works by a different mechanism than drugs like Viagra, which act directly on blood vessels. PT-141 acts directly on the central nervous system. For this reason, it works in arousal disorders, in both men and women, that stem from causes other than reduced blood flow. In addition, a study of men with ED who did not respond to Viagra found that roughly one-third experienced adequate erection for sexual intercourse with PT-141.
With proper dosing PT-141 acts within 30 -45 minutes of taking the injection, and effects may be felt up to 12 hours from the time of administration and have been known to last for up to 3 days, diminishing each day.
