PEPTIDES

Peptides for Anti-Aging

If you are doing research on the best anti-aging products you will see many websites talk about peptides and how beneficial they are.  But what are peptides and how are they used in anti-aging and hormone replacement?

What are peptides?

Peptides are amino acids that are linked together by bonds. They are found in every cell and tissue in the body.  Peptides perform many functions that are essential in our life. Some of the well-known peptides are hormones:

  • ACTH
  • Growth Hormone
  • Insulin
  • Oxytocin
  • Parathyroid hormone

There are many more peptides, and each serves a distinct function in the body.  

How do we use peptides at The Youth Fountain?

As part of your anti-aging regimen, Dr. Shakov may recommend one or more peptides depending on the indication.  As a replacement for growth hormone, Dr. Shakov will use peptides like CJC and Ipamorelin or Sermorelin.

If you are recovering from injuries or have intestinal disorders, he may recommend BPC-157.  For libido and erectile dysfunction, PT-141 may be useful.

If you have trouble concentrating or memory, nootropics like Cerbrolysin, Selank, and Semax may be useful.

Peptides may help with weight loss and muscle building.  The most important point with peptides is that you should not experiment on yourself using compounds made by experimental sites that may not have any safety controls or sterility.

At The Youth Fountain, you will be guaranteed that all peptides come from a compound pharmacy and that Dr. Shakov will appropriately select the correct one for the indication.
