Anti-Aging: Peptide Therapy and Hormone Optimization

Restorative Lifestyle Support at New Results Medical Weight Loss

A slowing metabolism, loss of lean muscle mass, rising cholesterol, low libido, and weight gain (especially in the mid-section) are all changes in the body associated with aging. Hormone imbalances can also cause memory problems, irritability, and low sex drive. Unfortunately, many people are conditioned to believe that the aches and pains and undesirable physical changes associated with aging are “just a part of getting older.”

The truth is, you don’t have to settle for feeling tired, run down, or just plain old worn out anymore. Many of the undesirable symptoms of aging can be alleviated, and in many ways reversed, with hormone optimization and prescription peptide therapy. These integrative medicines and therapies result in higher levels of Human Growth Hormone (HGH), which has been shown to have several benefits, including:

  • Decreased body fat
  • Increased muscle mass
  • Increased strength
  • Improved stamina
  • Improved fat burning
  • Improved energy and mood
  • Improved sex drive and desire
  • Improved skin elasticity
  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Improved immune system response
  • Improved cholesterol
  • Increased bone density

Utilizing peptide therapy separately or in conjunction with hormone replacement may restore optimal hormone levels, helping you feel younger—and look younger, too. There’s how you feel now, and there is how you can feel thanks to integrative, holistic protocols involving hormone optimization and peptide therapy from New Results Medical Weight Loss.

Increase Growth Hormone Levels Naturally, Safely, and Effectively

In women, HGH levels start to decline in their early 20s; in men, usually around age 35. Deficiencies of HGH are responsible for many of the negative effects of aging that people tend to experience in middle age and beyond, like weight gain, muscle loss, decreased energy levels, poor sleep and low sex drive/sexual dysfunction.

HGH replacement therapy was the first “anti-aging” protocol to address adult growth hormone deficiency. However, there were two issues that prevented more people from seeking HGH replacement therapy: the high cost, as well as the possibility of shutting down the normal growth hormone production in response to a reduction in HGH injections (known as tachyphylaxis).
The good news is that Growth Hormone Releasing Hormones (GHRH), also known as Secretagogues, and GHR Peptides such as Ibutamoren, Ipamorelin, Sermorelin, and GHRP-2/GHRP-6, do NOT experience tachyphylaxis; in fact, GHR Hormones and Peptides help the body achieve more natural Growth Hormone levels. And thanks to scientific advancements that have made these options more effective and more affordable than ever before, Peptide Therapy and Hormone Optimization has never been more attainable.

At New Results Medical Weight Loss, we help you discover the better version of yourself, so you experience the best version of life. Unlike online retailers and even some of our local competitors, New Results Medical Weight Loss is a physician-supervised healthy aging clinic that prescribes human-safe, FDA-regulated HGH-releasing hormones and peptides.

Prescription HGH-Releasing Peptide Supplements for Healthy Aging

Secretagogues, Peptides, GHRPs, and Non-Peptide GHRHs all fall under the umbrella of “holistic aging drugs” that can be administered orally (usually a small lozenge that dissolves under the tongue) or through a subcutaneous injection delivered just under the skin in the subdermal layer using a small insulin needle.

Peptide therapy and hormone optimization drugs are proven and safe. Physicians and holistic anti-aging wellness experts prescribe these products to aid the production of HGH in the body and promote healthy functioning of the pituitary (the gland responsible for our body’s natural production of HGH). Optimizing the production and secretion of HGH is key if you want to ward off or even reverse some of the effects of aging.

 

Why do we promote the use of HGH-releasing hormones and peptides instead of HGH replacement therapy?

  • If HGH therapy is not followed continuously or monitored closely, it can actually be a direct cause of HGH deficiency by shutting down one’s own internal production of HGH
  • HGH therapy is very expensive when compared to HGH-stimulating hormones and peptides
  • HGH has become a controlled substance in many countries, making it difficult (and expensive) to access legally and safely

FAQs About Peptide Therapy and Hormone Optimization

Ibutamoren Acetate is classified as a Non-Peptide Growth Hormone Secretagogue that mimics the GH-stimulating action of Ghrelin. Ibutamoren is potent, long-acting, and available through oral administration. Clinically, it has been demonstrated to increase endogenous GH as well as insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) without the adverse increase of prolactin or cortisol often seen with GHRPs. Additionally, an increase in lean body mass can be achieved while lowering LDL cholesterol.
Studies have shown Ibutamoren stimulates brain regions involved with metabolic actions such as the hypothalamus and the pituitary. Ibutamoren may be effective in increasing both muscle mass and bone mineral density, making it a promising therapy for the treatment of frailty and osteoporosis in the elderly.
Patient benefits over time may include:

  • Increased muscle mass
  • Decreased fat mass
  • Faster healing
  • Firmer, healthier skin
  • Healthier hair
  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Combats aging

Ipamorelin Acetate is a Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide (GHRP) that stimulates the pituitary gland within the body to release natural HGH. Ipamorelin Acetate is a pentapeptide composed of five amino acids and has a biological half-life of two hours after administration. It is widely known for being able to suppress Somatostatin, a growth-inhibiting hormone.
Studies suggest that Ipamorelin Acetate did not affect FSH, LH, Prolactin, or TSH levels. Furthermore, Ipamorelin did not seem to have an impact on cortisol and ACTH levels during GHRH stimulation.

Sermorelin Acetate is a compound similar in structure to GHRH that has been shown to stimulate the pituitary gland to produce and secrete HGH. It is a bioidentical synthetic hormone peptide sequence comprised of 29 amino acids.
Sermorelin was approved by the FDA to treat children, but many holistic aging and integrative medicine doctors are using it off-label to increase and optimize HGH level in adult patients. Sermorelin Acetate is normally prescribed at night to maximize the body’s natural cycle of growth hormone and stimulate the pituitary gland during REM sleep.
Based on the literature, Sermorelin has been shown to be effective in raising GH/IGF-1 levels, which may help to:

  • Increase bone density
  • Regenerate nerve tissues
  • Strengthen the cardiovascular system
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Increase muscle mass
  • Enhance energy levels
  • Improve ability to burn fat
  • Improve cognition and memory
  • Increase sex drive
  • Improve bone and mineral density
  • Improve recovery and repair from injuries

The benefits of Sermorelin that may be seen over the first four weeks of an integrative medicine protocol include:

Week 1: Quality of sleep
Week 2: Recovery from workouts
Week 3: Mental clarity
Week 4: Skin elasticity

Sermorelin should not be used while pregnant or breastfeeding. Always tell your physician about all medications and supplements, especially corticosteroids and thyroid medications, that you are taking. Common side effects of Sermorelin include reactions at the injection site, such as pain, redness or swelling; less than 1% of patients report dizziness, flushing, headache or hyperactivity.

GHRP-2 and GHRP-6 are Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides that stimulate the pituitary gland’s natural production of endogenous HGH. GHRP-2 and GHRP-6 can be used independently or combined with other GHRPs such as Ipamorelin and Sermorelin Acetate.
