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 MK677?
MK677, also called ibutamoren, is a type of growth hormone secretagogue. Originally developed to help patients with osteoporosis, researchers noticed the increase of growth hormone (GH) and insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF-1).
Our growth hormone that is naturally produced in our body is responsible for two things: stimulating growth (mainly in children) and impacting metabolism. As adults, this means that our growth hormone affects how our body turns food into energy. When this growth hormone begins to decline you would likely see a decrease in your energy, impacting your desire and ability to burn body fat and gain lean muscle mass.
MK677 is a peptide that encourages our body to begin producing larger amounts of the growth hormone, optimizing the levels so that they are allowing you to feel as you once did in your younger years when your GH was at its peak level.
This peptide is very similar to another common growth hormone secretagogue, CJC-1295. The main difference between the two is the state of the compound. CJC-1295 is injected as a liquid form, while MK677 is a solid state that is taken orally.
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 goals, and complete the necessary lab work.
2. If you are a candidate for this program, you will begin your hormone 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.
At Luxe Vitality, our peptide therapies for increasing lean muscle mass are priced as a membership that covers consultations, blood work, supplies, and access to our medical staff for $300 a month, with discounts available to those clients partaking in multiple therapies.
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?
