The use of peptides in healthcare has grown tremendously and is now widely available as a treatment option for numerous conditions. At Lahens Center, we are always researching new advances in medicine to ensure our patients receive the highest quality of care. We are proud to be offering peptide therapy to our patients.
What are peptides?
Peptides are the building blocks of proteins and are composed of amino acids that work to regulate a variety of biological functions and processes. These naturally occurring peptides act as signaling molecules within the body and instruct other cells and molecules on what functions to perform.
Currently there are over 7,000 known peptides and each is responsible for facilitating a different response and action within the body. Some common functions of peptides include providing pain relief, aiding in soft tissue repair, accelerating healing processes, promoting weight loss and lean muscle gain, reversing symptoms of sexual dysfunction, and improving hormone production and cognitive function.
What is peptide therapy?
Though our bodies naturally produce peptides the number and quality of peptides within the body depends on the person and may decline with age. Peptide therapy helps restore the number of peptides to stimulate cellular regrowth systems. Peptides are typically administered directly into the bloodstream through subcutaneous injections, but may also be applied as topical creams, nasal sprays, or oral forms.
Peptide therapy is entirely customized to the patient’s unique needs and goals. By using this targeted method, we can produce a specific reaction in the body and treat a variety of conditions.
