Peptide Therapies: What are They and How do They Work?

Peptide therapies are treatments that use peptides to help improve or fix a medical condition. Peptides are small proteins that play an important role in the body. Peptide therapy is becoming an increasingly popular treatment option for a variety of conditions.

In this blog post, we'll discuss what peptide therapies are, how they work, and some of the most common applications for them. We'll also talk about the potential benefits and drawbacks of using peptide therapies and how you can go about getting started with them if you're interested in trying them out yourself.

There were a lot of questions regarding peptide therapy. What is it? What are the benefits? What should one expect during treatment? Let's start with the basics: Peptide therapy is the use of specific peptides (small proteins) to stimulate the body to produce more collagen, elastin, and other youth-enhancing proteins.

The result is firmer, smoother, more hydrated skin with fewer wrinkles. Peptide therapy can also improve the appearance of sun damage, acne scars, and other types of scarring. In addition, peptide therapy can help to improve muscle tone and reduce the appearance of cellulite. There are a variety of different peptides that can be used for different purposes. Let’s talk about the top three.

1. Rg3 Nasal Spray

Rg3 has many health benefits. It includes anything from mental clarity to decreased stress, heightened concentration, and enhanced immune response, as well as increased energy. You can insert one to two sprays in each nostril twice a day, depending on your preference.

This is made up of ingredients that protect and restore the brain. It's made up of ginseng and Vitamin B12. It helps to suppress proinflammatory cytokines and regulate the activities of any type of inflammatory signaling going back and forth the nervous system.

In terms of the duration of use, you could use it twice daily. Here on out, you don't have to necessarily take any breaks. The typical treatment is to use it for at least eight weeks to see those effects. Some folks do it short-term while others continue for the long term. Aside from mild nasal irritation, there are no side effects from the use of this.

So far, there have been no long-term side effects reported from taking this medication. There is also no type of contraindications or medication interactions. The interesting thing about one of its ingredients, ginseng, is that it has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries. We've known ginseng has just very neuroprotective properties which help with cognitive function. It also helps to support the microglial activity in the brain cells. Microglial is a word that describes what happens when cells in the brain become active.

You may be asking: “Who is this for?” This could be for everyone and is great for anti-aging. Even if you don't have significant brain fog or history of concussions, or any neurological history considerations to be taking this. It could be good for everyone for cognitive support and as an anti-aging tool.

2. BPC-157

BPC stands for body protection compound. It's composed of 15 amino acids. It is considered synthetic because this particular sequence does not exist in nature. It is derived from a protective protein found in the stomach. It was discovered and is isolated from human gastric juice. The cool thing about this is that even if you take it in oral form, (it's offered in subcutaneous and oral form) it is not broken down. It’s absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract. This means one can have full benefit from either oral or subcutaneous types of administration. I would leave it up to the patients what their preferred mode of administration just depending on what they're comfortable with.

The benefit of this BPC-157 is that it helps to heal tissue. It also protects your brain and your heart. The big thing with this is it helps to stimulate what's called angiogenesis. That means, it stimulates new blood flow to an area for healing. When you want to start this therapy, after there has been some acute injury or illness, then continue that on for the most beneficial healing properties.

Now, that doesn’t mean that those who've had chronic issues won't benefit from this type of therapy just as well. It's very, antiinflammatory and, cytoprotective. Meaning, that it protects the cells and accelerates the healing.

For gut health, BPC-157 has been noted to be phenomenal. One of the major reasons we use it is because it combats leaky gut and irritable bowel syndrome. Anybody with gastrointestinal cramping or a history of Chrohn's disease will benefit from this. It helps to improve digestive function and just really kind of maintain that mucosal lining of the GI tract.

This can be given under the skin. We use a tiny little needle that can be injected into the subcutaneous tissue done daily, although one could take it orally as well. Usually, it depends on the patient’s preference. We can always switch back and forth between the two methods.

It supports gastrointestinal healing and joint health. It's great for any type of musculoskeletal injuries, and also cognitive performance and overall cognitive repair. BPC-157 is probably one of our most commonly prescribed peptides. This was discovered in Croatia by a team of gastroenterologists. They have a lot of information from different types of studies. They have studied animals and also looked at what people have said about the treatment.

3. DHH-B Peptide

You might have heard of this type before. This one is amazing for those who suffer from any type of anxiety, which is, a large part of the population. We know that antianxiety medications like benzodiazepines might help with the anxiety. However, they also produce side effects that can be worrisome. Benzodiazepines also have harmful side effects and drug dependency risks that come along with them.

DHH-B is a derivative of Magnolia bark. This has been used in traditional medicine in Southeast Asia for centuries. This has potent antianxiety effects and neuro-protective properties all at the same time. It's found to be much more beneficial effects than Valium or Xanax without the harmful side effects. This means you will not have sleepiness and the drug dependency risks that come along with those benzodiazepines.

How this works is it helps to enhance the gabba neurotransmitters. DHH-B and benzodiazepines have a very common effect on the brain. They can help promote sleep and can help reduce your anxiety level. It is a great antianxiety agent at the same time that it is an antioxidant. It can help with inflammation and oxidative stress. You don’t have to take DHH-B every day if you don't want to. You can do one capsule, but we usually recommend one to two capsules daily as needed.

The only thing with this one is, that I don't like to combine it with any type of prescription medications. Also, I suggest not to combine it with alcohol. It does not cause any type of sedation, but I just prefer it to be taken by itself. The benefit includes that you don't have that sedation or muscle relaxation effects. Remember that with benzos, if you're taking it and you're having to drive somewhere and then you'll get sleepy, there's a lot of risks that come with that.

While peptide therapies are still a relatively new development in the world of medicine, they show great promise for helping to improve or fix medical conditions. The top three recommended peptide therapies – RG3 Nasal Spray, BPC-157, and DHH-B – are particularly effective.
