Peptides to Support hGH


What are peptides and how what do they have to do with hGH? We first need to understand hGH, or human growth hormone. hGH is produced in the pituitary gland and has supports tissue growth and repair. Our bodies produce a lot of hGH when we are young, as it is crucial for growth of bones and tissues. However, as we enter middle age, our hGH levels have been slowly declining and we may observe some associated changes of aging. We may lose muscle mass, have an unfavorable change in body composition, show aging changes in our skin and may have slower healing of wounds and injuries. These symptoms are related to lower hGH levels. “Sarcopenia” is the medical term for loss of muscle mass. If muscle mass gets too low, you can get joint instability, coordination problems, and can even suffer falls which can break bones.

hGH therapy is FDA restricted to only a few specific conditions and cannot be used legally simply for anti-aging purposes. However, there is an exciting new field of peptides that are effective in raising your own natural hGH levels. Peptides are simply small proteins, that when taken into the body, go to the pituitary and stimulate it to make more hGH. Peptides are much safer than hGH itself, because your pituitary will never make a dangerously high amount of hGH, like hGH injections often do. Side effects of peptides are very few, and there are several now available from some specialized compounding pharmacies.

There are several forms and types of peptides available. There are a few sublingual or oral forms, but most physicians see the best hGH boosting effects from the injectable forms.

  • Sarcotropin
  • Sermorelin/ipamorelin
  • CJC/ipamorelin
  • Tesamorelin

Benefits of hGH supporting peptides may include:

  • Increased lean body mass (muscle)
  • Reduced body fat
  • Improved strength and stamina
  • Accelerated healing
  • Enhanced immune function
  • Improved sleep
  • Enhanced bone health
