A peptide is a short chain of amino acids which is easily and quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. These molecules act as signals to instruct cells to perform certain functions such as: the production of hormones, tissue repair and recovery, brain function, sleep cycle, weight loss, and sexual function. Peptide therapy has grown in popularity over the last decade because it is extremely specific, well tolerated and safe. At Maximum Medical, we work with patients to choose the peptide therapy that will help them reach their goals.
Bremelanotide (PT-141) Peptide Therapy is a treatment option offered by Maximum Medical for erectile dysfunction (ED). ED can harm sexual health and result in unpleasant sexual encounters. PT-141 injections, however, can stimulate the hormones that treat ED without the negative side effects of drugs like Viagra. Instead of affecting the circulatory system like other medications, PT-141 affects the nervous system by causing the release of dopamine from the hypothalamus, which improves libido, sexual performance, and satisfaction. Patients may experience more intense climaxes, longer lasting erections, and increased energy following injection. PT-141 injection is one of the best peptide therapies offered by Maximum Medical.
BPC-157 is derived from proteins present in digestive juices and is also referred to as stable gastric Penta decapeptide. The synthetic peptide BPC-157 has several regenerative properties and is particularly beneficial for the gut. The most effective use for BPC-157 is recovery from injury, acts as an anti-inflammatory, and aids in repair of tendons and ligaments. Maximum Medical offers BPC-157 for the treatment of pain, inflammation, as well as muscle and ligament damage.
IPAMORELIN/CJC-1295 is made up of two peptides and stimulates one side of the pituitary gland by releasing growth hormone. Ipamorelin binds to the ghrelin receptor in the pituitary gland in the brain and acts as a ghrelin imitator. As a result, it influences the pituitary to produce growth hormones. Together, these two peptides work to increase the body’s production of HGH (human growth hormone). This is accomplished by the IPAMORELIN/CJC-1295 combination acting on two different receptor families. Increased growth hormone improves muscle mass, decreases body fat, improves skin elasticity, improves sleep quality, and enhances health while slowing signs of aging.
