What Are Peptides & Why Do You Need Them?

Posted by Dr. Kris Wusterhausen on February 18, 2021

Whatever your stage in life may be, you want to live it to the fullest. You want mental clarity to perform at your peak, energy to spend time with friends and family when you’re off the clock, and a strong metabolism to help you maintain your ideal weight.

Peptide treatments are an easy, healthy way to supplement your life so you can make the most of it.

In this blog, we will break down what peptide treatments are, the ideal candidates for treatments, and the injections that may be right for you.

What Are Peptide Treatments?

man-with-nurse-getting-peptide-treatmentPeptide therapeutics involves injecting natural peptides, amino acids that serve as building blocks for protein, into the body. When peptides are absorbed, they increase your body’s natural production of hormones like hGH, the hormone responsible for physical strength and anti-aging skin factors.

Since the 1920s, peptide injections have been a popular treatment option in medical practices for men and women of all ages to improve athletic performance, assist in weight loss, and even boost sexual stamina.

Today, treatments are even more effective thanks to new natural sources of peptides and an improvement in peptide half-life and deliverability, or the effectiveness and longevity of the injections.

There are several types of peptides, and each serves a different purpose. Some break down stubborn fat cells. Some improve muscle retention and recovery from workouts. Some protect your skin from UV rays. Some enhance sexual performance and satisfaction.

You should speak to a doctor before getting an injection to ensure you get the right treatment for your specific needs.


Signs You Might Need Peptide Treatments

Peptides influence how your body reacts to diet and physical exercise, your skin’s ability to tan, and your immune responses. Men and women can both benefit from peptide therapy, particularly those who are athletes.

Middle-aged adults are also ideal candidates. As we age, our body’s natural production of essential amino acids decreases, making peptide injections especially beneficial.

If you experience any of these symptoms, a peptide treatment could be ideal for you:

  • A higher level of body fat, especially around the waist

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Decreased sexual function and libido

  • Fatigue

  • Greater sensitivity to heat and cold

  • Less muscle and lean body mass

  • Decreased strength, stamina, and ability to exercise without taking a rest

  • Reduced bone density and greater risk of bone fractures

Individuals who want to preserve their skin and prevent signs of aging are also ideal candidates. Peptides
