Peptides: True or False

Do You Have Questions About Peptides?

So you’ve heard about peptides and want to know what they do and whether they’re worth it. As with any supplement, there’s plenty of hype surrounding peptides that may not actually reflect reality. Likewise, there are many people who believe in the powers of peptides but haven’t tried them yet because they don’t know how or where to get them. 

Let's clear up some common misconceptions about this exciting new supplement!

Peptides: True or False

True.
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Proteins are long chains of amino acids, which are small molecules that combine to form larger structures like hair and skin. The human body uses proteins to build muscle, enzymes (which help reactions take place), hormones (which carry messages between cells), antibodies (to fight infections) and other important chemicals.

It’s true!
Peptides can help you build muscle, and they’re also great for helping you lose fat. That’s because peptides are an alternative to steroids that don’t have any of the negative side effects associated with those drugs.

They’re safe to use, too–and as far as we know, there haven’t been any studies showing that they cause cancer or heart disease or anything like that. So if you’re looking for a way to get bigger and stronger without having to inject yourself with nasty chemicals, peptides might be worth checking out!

Peptides can help you live longer.
Peptides can help you look younger.
Peptides can help you feel better, and they are one of the most powerful anti-aging tools available to us today.
They also have a number of other benefits that are often overlooked: they build muscle, they burn fat and they keep our metabolism high so we don’t gain weight when we stop exercising or eating less than we used to (which is why many people gain weight after dieting).

Peptides are a group of proteins that help build muscle and accelerate fat loss. They work by increasing the rate at which your body produces collagen, which is crucial for maintaining youthful skin. This means that peptides can make you look younger!

Peptides are also known for their ability to decrease appetite and increase metabolism so that users can lose weight without having to make any changes in their daily routine or diet (or exercise).

Peptides Are The Way To Better Results

Peptides are a type of protein, and they can help you build muscle, lose fat and look younger. They also make you feel better. Peptides are the latest thing in health and wellness because they’re so effective at delivering results!

Peptides are tiny chains of amino acids that act as messengers between cells in your body (think “cellular communication”). When taken as a supplement or injected directly into muscles (which is called intramuscular delivery), peptides are absorbed directly into the bloodstream where they travel to their target areas in order to perform their function(s).

Peptides We Offer At The Wellness Method

BPC 157

BPC 157, composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) that is discovered in and isolated from the human gastric juice. Experimentally it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments. Also, BPC 157 seems to protect organs and to prevent ulcers of the stomach. This peptide is also shown to decrease pain in damaged areas. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears and damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide. It can also help aid skin burns to heal at a faster rate and increase blood flow to damaged tissues.

• Tendon healing.
• Decrease pain.
• Increase collagen synthesis.
• Quicker recovery times post-injury.
• Wound and bone healing.
• Decrease in inflammation.
• Intestinal issues.
• Protects the heart.
• Reverse opioid tolerance
• Enhance GABA neurotransmission.

CJC 1295

CJC 1295 is a synthetically produced peptide that can increase your plasma growth hormone levels. Initially, CJC 1295 was developed to treat diseases and medical conditions for patients who had muscle disorders, diseases, and burn victims. CJC 1295 has drawn many individuals like athletes from around the
globe for its incredible benefits and minimal side effects to enhance their performance on the field and in the gym. The primary purpose of CJC-1295 is to
boost protein synthesis levels and help fuel the growth of muscle tissues in the body. Many benefits will be derived by users who are incorporating CJC-1295 to their regimen; among these are:

• Decrease body fat
• Improve sleep quality.
• Increase cognitive function.
• Quicker recovery times post-injury.
• Increased muscle mass.
• Increase in strength.

KISSPEPTIN

  • Kisspeptin-10 is administered for improving sexual brain processing in both men and women, results in positive effects on sexual behavior.
  • Kisspeptin-10 was originally named metastin after its ability to prevent the spread of cancer (metastasis). Recent data suggests that kisspeptin may play a role in food intake, glucose homeostasis, and mediating the effect of energy balance on reproductive function. Thus, kisspeptin may have a direct role in regulating energy balance and may also be a direct regulator of metabolism.

MELANOTAN II

  • Melanotan II is a non-selective agonist of the melanocortin receptors which was originally developed as a tanning peptide. Hence the reason the peptide was marketed as the “Barbie” peptide with its binding ability to MCR1. Melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH) has been shown to control skin coloration/pigmentation in humans. The pigment melanin is produced in melanosomes by melanocytes in a complex process called melanogenesis. Melanin is the principal determinant factor of skin, hair, and eye color. It has a significant role in photoprotection due to its ability to absorb ultraviolet radiation (UVR).
  • Tanning: Melanotan II is mainly used for its tanning effects. By increasing melanin production in the skin, it can lead to a darker and more even tan without the need for prolonged sun exposure.
  • Skin protection: The increased melanin production induced by Melanotan II can provide some level of protection against UV radiation from the sun. This may help reduce the risk of sunburn and skin damage.
  • Appetite suppression: Some users report that Melanotan II can help suppress appetite, which may aid in weight loss efforts.
  • Improved libido: There are anecdotal reports suggesting that Melanotan II can enhance libido and sexual arousal in some individuals.
  • Erectile dysfunction: Melanotan II has been studied for its potential in treating erectile dysfunction, as it can improve blood flow and enhance sexual function in men.rt

IPAMORELIN

  • Ipamorelin stimulates the pituitary gland to produce more endogenous growth hormone. With virtually no negative side effects, Ipamorelin is one of the safest, most effective forms of growth hormone (GH) restoration, widely used to support age management, disease management, sports performance and GH deficiency treatment protocols.
  • Potential Benefits of Increased GH · Decreased body fat · Increased muscle mass · Increased strength · Increased cellular repair and regeneration · Improved energy & strength · Improved quality of sleep · Helps combat insomnia · Increases physical and mental performance · Enhances calcium retention · Bone density improves · Improves immune function · Improves fat burning · Improves skin elasticity · Aids in connective tissue repair post injury.

GHK-CU

  • Tighten loose skin and reverse thinning of aged skin.
  • Repair protective skin barrier proteins.
  • Improves skin elasticity, firmness and clarity.
  • Reduces fine lines, depth of wrinkles and smoothes rough skin.
  • GHK stimulates both synthesis and breakdown of collagen and
    glycosaminoglycans and modulates the activity of both metalloproteinases and their inhibitors. It stimulates collagen, dermatan sulfate, chondroitin sulfate, and the small proteoglycan, decorin. It also restores replicative vitality to fibroblasts after radiation therapy.

MOTS-C

  • Targets skeletal muscle and can enhance glucose metabolism.
  • Plays an important role in the regulation of cardiovascular, diabetes, exercise, and longevity.
  • It is a new mitochondrial signaling mechanism and plays a role in regulating intracellular and intercellular metabolism.
  • It is colocalized to mitochondria in various tissues and is found in plasma, but the levels decline with age. Since MOTS-c has important cellular functions as well as a possible hormonal role, it has been shown to have beneficial effects on age-related diseases including Diabetes, Cardiovascular diseases, Osteoporosis, postmenopausal obesity and Alzheimer. Aging is characterized by gradual loss of (mitochondrial) metabolic balance, decreased muscle homeostasis and eventual diminished physical capability, which potentially can be reversed with MOTS-c treatment.

NAD+

  • Nicotinamide adenine nucleotide (NAD+) has emerged as a key regulator of cellular processes that control the body’s response to stress. NAD boosters, small molecules that raise NAD+ levels, are now considered to be highly promising for the treatment of multiple diseases and the potential extension of the human lifespan.
  • Improves Cognitive Function
  • Assists in Weight Management
  • Boosts Energy
  • Aids in Muscle Development and Recovery
  • Supports Pain Management
  • Improves Mood

 

TB-500

  • The TB-500 peptide is a simple precursor protein that stimulates muscle growth and regeneration.
  • The peptide can be injected into damaged muscle tissue—like that which is seen in cases of muscular dystrophy—to repair damaged cells.
  • This peptide is typically used for muscle regrowth and repair in patients who have experienced trauma. However, its anti-inflammatory properties also make it a viable treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, lupus, Alzheimer’s disease and more.
