6 Symptoms Of Getting Older You Can Treat With Peptides

Posted by Dr. Kris Wusterhausen on May 14, 2020


Getting older comes with a lot of unwanted side effects, from physical changes like graying hair and wrinkles to mental changes like a decrease in cognitive function. When you get into your 40s and later, you might find it hard to recognize the person you see in the mirror, especially when you still feel young on the inside!

Many people come to accept the problems that come with aging. They push through the wrinkles, thinning hair, and brain fog, believing there’s nothing they can do about them. But there is an alternative.

While aging is inevitable, some of the changes it brings are not. There are steps you can take to regain your energy, your vitality, and your confidence. Peptides, strings of proteins found naturally within the body, can help restore your health so you can feel like yourself again.

Below, we’ll explore some of the most common symptoms of aging—and the peptides that can resolve the symptoms in as little as 3 weeks.

1.Your Memory Isn’t What It Used To Be

For most people, age-related memory loss is one of the most frightening parts of getting older. Unfortunately, it’s more common than you might think. This is often because hormones and proteins responsible for repairing brain tissue, such as growth hormone and insulin growth factor-1, decline with age. This can cause you to lose:

  • Your ability to do the things you’ve always done
  • The wisdom and knowledge you’ve acquired from life experience
  • Your innate common sense and ability to think clearly

While all of this can be discouraging, there is good news. Two peptides have been proven to improve your cognition and memory naturally. When used together, CJC1295 + Ipamorelin raise your body’s growth hormone/insulin growth factor-1 levels. 

Numerous studies have shown that CJC 1295 + Ipamorelin resulted in sustained, dose-dependent increases in GH and IGF-I levels in healthy adults and are safe and relatively well tolerated, particularly at doses of 30 or 60 ug/kg. The benefits increase the longer you use the peptides.

2.Your Hair Is Thinning (Or Almost Gone)

Whether you’re a man or a woman, hair loss can take a serious toll on your self-confidence. Age is one of the most common causes of hair loss. According to one study, by age 50, 50% of men have at least some noticeable hair loss. By age 60, about two-thirds are either bald or have a balding pattern. 

Women don’t have much luck either. According to the Northern American Menopause Society, about 50% of women will experience some degree of hair loss or thinning before age 50, often worsening with menopause.

Age-related hair loss may be common, but you don’t have to settle for thinning hair or going bald. GHK-Cu is a copper peptide naturally produced in many tissues in the body. This peptide has been scientifically proven to prevent and correct hair loss. GHK-Cu heals hair follicles at the root, reversing the effects of age-related hair loss or even preventing it entirely.

3.You Have More Wrinkles

Wrinkles are one of the most common and most dreaded symptoms of aging. As we get older, our bodies produce less collagen, the protein responsible for skin healing and firmness. Collagen production declines in the late teens, and you might notice wrinkles as soon as in your mid-20s. These wrinkles will worsen over time.


In addition to strengthening your hair, GHK-Cu is also a great treatment and preventative measure for wrinkles. The copper peptide stimulates collagen and glycosaminoglycan synthesis, which helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Over time, you may notice a drastic improvement in the appearance of wrinkles all over the body.

4. The Bedroom Isn’t As Fun Anymore

Another unpleasant side effect of getting older is the development of sexual disorders and/or erectile dysfunction. Both men and women will experience a drop in libido over time. 

For men, the drop-off typically starts in your 30s, when your body begins to produce less testosterone. This can contribute to symptoms of ED as well. Women are 2-3 times more likely to be affected by a drop in libido, typically starting in the late 40s as a result of menopause.

The solution may come from somewhere you would never suspect: a peptide used for tanning. During clinical trials for its use as a tanning agent, the peptide Melanotan II was found to be a potent stimulator of male erections. It has also been shown to increase female sexual desire in patients with sexual arousal disorder.

5.It Takes You Longer To Bounce Back After An Injury

We all know that injuries become more severe as we age. This happens for a number of reasons. For example, the decreased collagen associated with aging also impacts your skin’s ability to heal from cuts and tears

BPC 157 and Ipamorelin have been shown to help in this area of aging as well. When combined, these two powerhouse peptides can help:

  • Increase bone density
  • Strengthen the cardiovascular system
  • Increase muscle mass
  • Improve your ability to burn fat
  • Improve recovery and repair from injuries
  • Regenerate nerve tissues

6. You Have Certain Chronic Diseases

Even if you follow a healthy lifestyle, eat a clean diet, and exercise regularly, you may still find yourself struggling with chronic health problems as you age. These can be debilitating and greatly impact your quality of life.

While many of these diseases are incurable, peptides have been proven to provide relief for specific conditions. These can include:

  • Alzheimer’s Disease - CJC1295 and ipamorelin’s impact on memory may combat the symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease, particularly if taken early on.
  • Insomnia and Stress Disorders - GHK-CU restores gut health and treats GI problems, many of which cause chronic stress and insomnia.
  • Obesity - When taken together, CJC1295 and ipamorelin can cause weight loss and muscle gain.
  • Osteoporosis - CJC1295 and ipamorelin have a direct impact on bone density and strength and can potentially be used to prevent osteoporosis and osteopenia
  • Inflammatory Diseases - GHK-Cu decreases your body’s inflammation, which can provide significant relief in patients with certain inflammatory diseases.
  • Autoimmune Disorders - Conditions like asthma and arthritis are often caused by inflammation. By reducing inflammation, GHK-Cu can provide symptom relief.
