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 enhance specific functions within the human body.
Therapy with peptides uses those sequences already present in the body to regulate, restore, and rejuvenate functions by binding to cells and and replacing or mimicking the functions of naturally occurring peptides. Peptides have the capability to utilize body chemistry relationships to promote restoration, anabolism, and homeostasis.

Peptide therapy is the future of regenerative medicine. There are over 60 FDA approved peptides on the market. Peptide therapy is commonly used in anti-aging and regenerative medicine to help promote healing within the body, increase energy levels, improve gut health, improve brain health, boost immune function, and enhance sexual function.

Which peptides are best?

Peptides in general have many benefits, whether its healthier joints, weight loss, better body composition, or improvement of athletic performance.  Peptides also have a very high safety factor and are well-tolerated by patients as they are not something new to our bodies. Although many peptide therapies are available, there are a few that stand out as very effective, safe, and well-tolerated. These particular peptides are what we recommend at Activation Clinic.

What is Sermorelin?

Sermorelin is one of the most popular anti-aging peptides available today. Sermorelin is a bioidentical hormone peptide composed of 29 amino acids, made using natural plant sources. It’s used by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide to fight the signs and symptoms of aging in a safe, effective way. Sermorelin is a peptide that is known as a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH), or growth hormone-releasing peptide. It is not human growth hormone (HGH). Rather, it is a peptide hormone that triggers the production and release of your own HGH from your pituitary gland. For the last several decades, this has been considered by the medical community as a much safer way of achieving higher levels of HGH in the body over traditional HGH replacement therapy.

Sermorelin for Anti-Aging
Sermorelin works to reverse some of the symptoms of aging. It does this by increasing the circulating levels of human growth hormone (HGH) in the body. This hormone is essential, not just for growth when you are young but also for many bodily systems and processes. However, the level of Sermorelin in the body peaks around 30 years of age and decreases by as much as 14% per decade after that. This (along with decreased production of sex hormones) is one of the primary chemical reasons for body changes due to aging, such as increased body fat, decreased muscle mass, slower and less effective healing, sleep disturbances, less energy, and greater fatigue, and more. Counteracting these age-related changes is precisely the reason Sermorelin is so popular and is prescribed by anti-aging physicians for a myriad of anti-aging and regenerative purposes.

What is Glycine?

Glycine is a vital amino acid that is essential for many different muscle, cognitive and metabolic functions.  Our bodies rely on glycine daily to function properly. It helps break down and transport nutrients like glycogen and fat to be used by cells for energy. In addition, glycine supports muscular, immune, digestive, and nervous systems. Research has show that it can also help to stimulate the pituitary gland to secrete HGH, promote muscle growth, repair joints and cartilage, improve digestion, support immune function, improve cognitive performance, and promote restful sleep.

Sermorelin + Glycine = A Winning Combination
Sermorelin alone is shown to have incredible benefits, but coupling it with Glycine creates a powerful, synergistic combination that could significantly improve a patient’s quality of life. The benefits of Sermorelin + Glycine include increased energy, enhanced metabolism, increased lean muscle, reduced body fat, improved immune response, greater bone density, better and more restorative sleep, improved mental clarity and cognition, increased physical and mental stamina, and enhanced sex drive.

What is Thymosin Beta-4?
Thymosin Beta-4 is a 43 amino acid peptide hormone that plays a vital role in repair and regeneration of injured cells and tissues as well as immune system regulation.
Thymosin Beta-4 acts as a major actin-sequestering molecule and may contribute to physiological processes such as angiogenesis, wound healing, and regulation of inflammation. It is prescribed for acute injury, surgical repair, and active individuals who accumulated injury over time, helping prevent the formation of fibrous adhesions and scar tissue.

Thymosin Beta-4 may also help improve muscle tone, reduce muscle spasms. In addition, it can be taken after cardiac injury for better healing of the tissue in the heart. Thymosin Beta-4 has also been found to accelerate hair growth by activating hair follicle stem cells. With the abundance of benefits and research behind Thymosin Beta-4,  it is no surprise that it is prescribed by anti-aging and regenerative medicine doctors all over the world, for athletes and other active individuals.
