Peptide Therapy Q & A

What is peptide therapy?

Peptide therapy boosts the number of peptides in your body, stimulating the specific cellular response needed to treat your unique health needs. Here’s how peptides work.

Peptides are small proteins, meaning they’re made of amino acids. But while most proteins consist of long chains containing more than 50 and sometimes thousands of amino acids, peptides have 2-50 amino acids.

Your body naturally produces peptides, then they communicate with cells and activate a specific response. They’re essential for numerous activities that keep you alive and healthy. For example, they promote healing, improve your gut health, relieve pain, and support brain function.

If you need more to convince you of how peptides contribute to your health, consider this: The US Food and Drug Administration has approved many peptide-based medications, including insulin and drugs to treat muscular dystrophy, multiple myeloma, and obesity.

What are the benefits of peptide therapy?

Peptide therapy can treat many health issues, depending on which peptides you receive. Your provider may recommend peptide therapy to:

  • Accelerate healing
  • Strengthen immune function
  • Increase hormone levels
  • Build lean muscle mass and strength
  • Improve joint and muscle pain
  • Enhance cognitive function and memory
  • Reverse symptoms of sexual dysfunction
  • Increase sex drive
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Increase energy and stamina
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Stimulate hair growth
  • Reduce weight and body fat

Peptides also slow down cellular aging.

Am I a good candidate for peptide therapy?

Virtually everyone is a good candidate for peptide therapy. Since they mimic your body’s natural peptides, this treatment is well tolerated and seldom causes side effects.

How do I obtain peptide therapy?

The first step is scheduling an appointment with your provider at Better Health Management Inc. They need to complete a thorough health assessment, including reviewing your medical history, discussing your health concerns and goals, and completing a physical exam. 

Your provider may also need to run lab tests to verify the root cause of your symptoms.

After determining you need peptide therapy, your provider customizes your treatment, carefully choosing the peptides needed for your diagnosis and/or wellness goals. They may administer peptides through an injection or prescribe a topical cream, nasal spray, or oral medication.
