At Metabolix Wellness Center in Clearwater, FL, we understand how important peptides are for your quality of life. If you have noticed that you are gaining weight despite not changing your diet, your doctor has told you that your cholesterol levels are high, or you aren’t interested in sex anymore, you may be a good candidate for peptide therapy. Today, we’re taking a look at how quickly this treatment starts to work.
How Quickly Does Peptide Therapy Start Working?
As a general rule of thumb, you can expect to start enjoying the benefits of peptide therapy within 21 days of therapy. However, you should not feel disappointed if you do not yet feel completely satisfied with your results after just three weeks. It will take approximately three to six months of injections to achieve the results you’re looking for.
Which Peptides will Benefit Me?
There are dozens of peptides and each peptide brings to the table different benefits. Some of the most popular peptides are bremelanotide, dihexa, and MOTS-c. During your consultation, we will discuss all of your goals to determine which peptide or peptides will be the most beneficial for you. Here’s a closer look at some of our most popular peptides.
Regardless of your sex, you can benefit from bremelanotide supplementation if you suffer from sexual dysfunction. It is most commonly sought by men to treat erectile dysfunction that is caused by a psychological problem. However, men and women alike will notice an increase in sexual arousal independent of sexual stimulation, sexual desire, and improved libido.
The great thing about this treatment for men is that it treats erectile dysfunction effectively without the side effects that usually accompany ED treatment. For example, if you use peptide therapy, you don’t have to worry about it being psychologically habit-forming.
This nootropic peptide is sometimes referred to as the neurogenic wonder drug. Reliable research results have shown that it is 10,000,000 times more effective than BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor). Unlike bremelanotide, this peptide is administered orally rather than subcutaneously via injection. It was originally developed by Washington State University researchers who spent two decades studying peptides and how they affect cognition.
There is an excellent chance that you will be considered a good candidate for this type of peptide therapy if you have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimer’s disease. This peptide may also benefit you if you are experiencing such brain-related problems as difficulty focusing, trouble forming short-term memories, or a problem with retrieving long-term memories. Here are some other benefits:
- Reduced depression symptoms
- Better cognitive function
- Enhanced creative thinking
- Easier social interactions
MOTS-c may be the ideal peptide supplement for you if you find that you are struggling with weight gain. It comprises an astonishing 16 amino acids that restore balance to your metabolism. Research has shown that this peptide can provide a number of benefits, including treating obesity safely and effectively. You should still make an effort to eat at a caloric deficit during this therapy, but you may find yourself losing weight faster than you would expect.
This peptide increases your metabolism, so you can burn more calories even at rest. However, you still need to watch your diet. It is unfortunately easy to consume more calories than you burn in a day, especially when you drink calories that don’t make you feel full.
Ipamorelin is a relatively small peptide made up of just five amino acids. This peptide encourages your body to produce more GH (growth hormone) because it mimics the effects of the GH produced naturally by your body. This is an excellent peptide to consider if you are worried about the side effects of the natural aging process, like an increase in body fat percentage, a decrease in strength or lean muscle mass, or less vitality and energy than you had in your younger years.
Kisspeptin is another incredibly popular peptide we offer to help our clients improve their quality of life. Like bremelanotide, this peptide may benefit you significantly if you are concerned about your sexual health. Both men and women can benefit from taking this supplement if they are concerned about low energy levels, low libido, or other sexual arousal problems.
Men in particular, though, benefit significantly from this peptide because it can maintain or increase testosterone levels and prevent testicular atrophy. Women can enjoy such benefits as an increase in follicular stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone.
GHK-Cu, or GHK-Copper is a tri-peptide that was first used in the 80s for the improvement of skin concerns. Research studies have proven that it is an excellent anti-aging ingredient, but it can do much more than renew, repair, and rejuvenate your skin. This peptide may be ideal for you if you are looking to help your skin heal. You also may benefit from its anti-inflammatory or antiviral properties, and it can increase follicle size and accelerate hair growth.
Semaglutide, sometimes referred to as GLP-1 or glucagon-like peptide-1, may be ideal for you if you are worried about your blood glucose and A1c levels or weight. It plays an important part in several roles, including decreasing the secretion of glucagon. This results in delayed gastric emptying which can help you feel fuller for longer. Another function this peptide helps with is an increase in pancreatic beta cell growth. This results in the production of more insulin.
Semaglutide may also benefit you significantly if you find yourself with nocturnal problems. After a few weeks of taking this peptide, you may find that you fall asleep faster, sleep more soundly throughout the night, and wake up feeling much more rested the next morning. It also has neuroprotective qualities, can improve fertility, and is often used for the treatment of polycystic ovarian syndrome.
AOD9604 is a peptide that is often taken in conjunction with semaglutide. AOD9604 is sometimes referred to as anti-obesity drug or AOD. This synthetic peptide fragment was designed to provide the same fat-burning effects of HGH (human growth hormone) without promoting muscle building. Some of the most compelling benefits of this treatment are the prevention of fat accumulation, the promotion of fat breakdown, and the release of fat from adipose tissue cells.
Thymosin is sometimes referred to as the repair and recovery peptide. Its two primary roles are to repair damaged tissues and support immune function. In addition, it has anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties. If you are worried about discomfort or pain caused by inflammation, be it from irritated joints or itchy skin, there is a good chance that this peptide will benefit you.
Semax is a neuropeptide that may benefit you significantly if you have neuromuscular problems or slow nerve regeneration. It can also mitigate the risk of developing chronic diseases while increasing both physical and cognitive performance significantly. For example, it can help you think more clearly and recall long-term memories better. It can also help to treat such chronic diseases as Alzheimer’s Parkinson’s, or ALS. Moreover, it can treat anxiety.
What Can I Expect During This Treatment?
We will advise you on what you can expect during your treatment when you attend your initial consultation. Most peptides are administered daily through the skin with a tiny insulin needle. However, some peptides come in the form of capsules designed to be taken by mouth. Depending on the benefits you are looking to achieve, you may need to inject some peptide supplements and swallow some peptide supplements every day.
What Are Peptides?
Peptides are similar to proteins in that they are both made up of amino acids. The primary difference between peptides and proteins is that the former comprises short chains of amino acids. These chains are held together by peptide bonds. Proteins, on the other hand, are made up of long amino acid chains. Most peptides are made up of a two- to 50-amino acid-long chain.
