So you’ve been lifting weights in the gym, watching what you eat, and still aren’t seeing the results you’ve been looking for?
As we age, the ability to get those lean muscle gains gets harder and harder - regardless of the effort you put into it. That’s because the naturally occurring growth hormones that help you build lean muscle and keep body fat low, declines as you age.
But are you doomed to having lesser gains? Nope. Read below about a safe, effective peptide therapy that can help you optimize your time in the gym and see the results you deserve.
Peptides and proteins are often confused because they are both chains of amino acids held together by peptide bonds. However, peptides have much fewer amino acids making them much smaller.
No matter the size, peptides have been shown to have some pretty big impacts. They also tend to be more easily absorbed by the body because of their size. So while they provide the same benefits as protein, they are absorbed faster and can often do the job better.
What are peptides used for?
Peptides can be used for a variety of purposes. Peptides for muscle gain are often used by individuals who are interested in lowering their body fat and gaining lean muscle through their workouts.
Another effective use are peptides for weight loss. These peptides are ideal for people who have a significant amount of weight to lose and have had difficulties losing weight with nutrition and exercise alone.
Individuals will also seek out peptide therapy if they are interested in using peptides for recovery. Peptide use can help active recovery from workouts or recovery from physical conditions such as post surgery or injury.
What is Ipamorelin?
Ipamorelin is a type of growth hormone secretagogue and mimics the body’s hormone ghrelin. This hormone is a producer of growth hormone and is naturally released when the body is hungry. However, when someone uses the peptide ipamorelin, it will stimulate the body to release growth hormone even when the body is not hungry. This allows for loss of body fat, increased lean muscle mass, better sleep, and faster recovery.
What is CJC-1295?
CJC-1295 is a type of peptide called a growth releasing factor, stimulating the body to release both growth hormone (GH) and insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). Similar to ipamorelin, this peptide is popular for helping lose weight, build lean muscle, and recover from fatigue or injury faster.
The difference between ipamorelin and CJC-1295 is that CJC-1295 also inhibits the hormone somatostatin, the hormone that stops the production of growth hormone. This increases the amount of GH that is continuously released in the body, increasing the benefits.
Why are these two peptides often combined?
A lot of providers will choose to prescribe a combination of CJC-1295 and Ipamorelin because they work cohesively together to get the best results.
As mentioned above, ipamorelin encourages the body to continuously release growth hormones while CJC-1295 is going to inhibit the hormone that stops the body from releasing the hormone. In combination, your body will be naturally producing the necessary growth hormone that is needed to find the results you are looking for regardless of your age.
What is the process?
The process for obtaining peptides should be done with a medical professional. Should you see our staff at Luxe Vitality, this is what you should expect:
1. Consultation with our medical staff to discuss your medical history, weight loss or gym goals, and complete the necessary lab work.
2. If you are a candidate for this program, you will begin your therapy journey.
3. Come into the lounge to learn how to complete your self-injections at home.
4. Each month you will receive your individualized dosage and instructions delivered to your front door.
Who is a candidate?
To determine if you are a candidate for any peptide therapy, it is important that you run a full panel of blood work. This will allow your medical provider to look at your current hormone levels and ensure there are no underlying concerns that may need to be addressed prior to peptide use.
How much does it cost?
Your overall cost will depend on which anti-aging clinic you are using for your peptide therapy. Typically you will see a range of $200 - $800 a month for peptide therapies, all depending on which peptide you are using and what comprehensive membership is being offered.
Sound like peptide therapy is what you have been looking for to reach those gains in the gym? Or lose stubborn belly fat? Or drop the weight that just won’t come off with cutting calories alone?
