Unlocking the Power of Peptides
Peptides are quickly gaining attention as a promising area of research in modern medicine. With their unique properties and proven safety profile, they have the potential to revolutionize treatments for various health conditions.
What is peptide therapy?
Peptides are short chains of amino acids that influence major biological processes. Though peptides are naturally-occurring, the volume of peptides in the body decreases with age.
Peptide therapy reintroduces peptides and harnesses their power to stimulate the release of essential hormones that regulate biological processes, like digestion, immunity, and tissue repair.
Peptides Offered at Hudson Health:
Comprising 15 amino acids, this peptide enhances healing processes by reducing inflammation and increasing blood flow around damaged tissue. It’s also known for its ability to protect major organs and defend against stomach ulcers. It may be especially useful for anyone recovering from muscle strain or damaged ligaments and tendons.
– Boosts tissue recovery from sprains and tears
– Reduces inflammation
– Prevents stomach ulcers
– Improves digestion
– Strengthens connective tissue
Made of 5 amino acids, Ipamorelin is a low-risk growth hormone-releasing peptide known for suppressing growth inhibiting hormones to enhance physical performance and recovery.
– Increase muscle mass
– Reduce body fat
– Improve bone density
– Improve sex drive
– Strengthen cardiovascular system
– Enhance quality sleep
– Boost energy
With 29 amino acids, CJC-1295 stimulates the release of growth hormones. This peptide is known for initiating fat loss and increasing muscle growth.
*CJC may be used in conjunction with Ipamorelin to increase the speed of growth hormone secretion, resulting in faster recovery times.
Encourages muscle growth
Promotes deep sleep, which is essential for repairing tissue and restoring immune system functioning.
TB4 is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and promotion of tissue repair and regeneration.
– Faster recovery from injury
– Reduce inflammation
– Cellular regeneration
An FDA-approved peptide, Semaglutide is widely known for its ability to treat type 2 diabetes and suppressing appetite to prompt weight loss. Semaglutide increases insulin secretion in type 2 diabetic patients, and supports feelings of satiety.
-Type 2 diabetes management
– Appetite reduction
– Weight loss
This peptide is typically used to treat sexual dysfunction in men and women, by stimulating the release of dopamine and suppressing serotonin. Studies also indicate that it has a positive impact on inflammation reduction and weight loss.
– Restores sexual dysfunction
– Improves libido
– Reduces inflammation
With 7 amino acids, Selank is known for its nootropic and neuroprotective effects. Selank modulates neurotransmitters like serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine.
Known for its neurotropic activity, this peptide is often used to support brain circulation dysfunction.
– Improves attention and concentration
– Reduces the formation of blood clots
Derived from mitochondria, MOTSc is known for its anti-aging, metabolic, and cardiovascular port.
Improves insulin sensitivity
Increases energy production
Reduces the risk of heart disease
Protects against neurodegeneration
A small, naturally-occurring copper peptide that influences a wide range of body functions, from stimulating collagen growth to reducing oxidative damage.
Enhances wound healing
Promotes blood vessel growth
Removes damaged tissue and generates healthy tissue
An antimicrobial peptide produced by various cell types, including immune cells. LL-37 is known for its ability to kill bacteria and viruses, and reduce inflammation.
Regulates immune responses
Activates wound healing
Stimulates the growth of new blood vessels
Improves blood flow
Known for its anti-inflammatory qualities, ARA-290 is often used to help manage neuropathy and chronic pain.
Defends against inflammation
Promotes tissue repair
Protects against oxidative stress
With its neuroprotective qualities, Cerebrolysin defends against the onset of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative conditions.
Promotes new neural connections
Protects against cognitive impairment
A healing peptide known for supporting compromised immune systems and protecting against inflammation-induced disease.
Regulates inflammatory response
Promotes growth of new blood vessels
Stimulates immune cells
As a reproductive-regulating peptide, Kisspeptin is known for treating infertility in men and women.
Stimulates ovulation in women and sperm production in men
Regulates menstrual cycle
Promotes testosterone production
KPV’s anti-inflammatory qualities are known for supporting gut health and healing common GI conditions.
Protects against harmful bacteria
Treats GI conditions like IBS
Facilitates wound healing
Defends against colon cancer and decreases tumor formation

Uses of peptides in medicine:
Peptides have shown potential in a wide range of medical applications, including:
- Hormone regulation:
Peptides can act as hormones or hormone regulators, helping to maintain homeostasis and promote normal bodily functions. Examples include insulin, which regulates blood sugar levels, and growth hormone-releasing peptides (CJC/Ipamorelin), which stimulate the production of growth hormone.
- Anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating effects:
Some peptides have demonstrated the ability to modulate the immune system and reduce inflammation, making them promising candidates for treating autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. (Thymosin Beta-4, Thymosin Alpha-1
- Tissue repair and regeneration:
Peptides can promote wound healing, tissue regeneration, and cellular growth, making them valuable in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. (BPC157)
- Antimicrobial properties:
Certain peptides possess antimicrobial activity, offering potential as new treatments for bacterial, fungal, and viral infections. (LL37)
