Peptides are essential to life in that they naturally occur in every cell of all living things. They are short chains of two or more amino acids and have many biological functions.
Peptides are an affordable alternative option for those seeking to improve symptoms, manage pain, and promote healing.
Discover What Peptides Can Do For You
Why Order From a Compounding Pharmacy?
Peptides that are compounded through a compounding pharmacy must follow USP <795> and USP <797> guidelines. These guidelines help maintain quality healthcare standards and processes. These standards help protect the patient from receiving harmful or improperly made compounded preparations. Compounding Pharmacies are also under the supervision of the Board of Pharmacy specific to their state. Between USP guidelines and the Board of Pharmacy regulations, stringent requirements are placed on compounding pharmacies to protect the end-user patient on receiving quality medication. To provide a peptide to a patient through a pharmacy a receipt of valid prescriptions by a licensed physician is required.
If given a choice, compounding pharmacies are the superior avenue. They are a little higher priced than an online supplier but with the quality of the ingredients being used, regulations they follow, and testing performed to produce a quality preparation offsets the increased cost.
Peptides are prescription based. Please contact one of our Care Coordinators to find out more.
Some popular peptides are:
Thymosin Beta – 4
Thymosin Beta-4 is a protein that consists of 43 amino acids. TB-500 is a synthetic fraction of the protein thymosin beta-4. The main purpose of this peptide is to promote healing. The healing effects of TB-500 have been observed in tendons, ligaments, muscle, skin, heart, and eyes. Thymosin beta-4 is naturally produced in higher concentrations where tissue has been damaged. This peptide is also a very potent anti-inflammatory agent.
Thymosin Alpha 1
Thymosin Alpha-1 is a protein that consists of 28 amino acids. Thymosin Alpha-1 plays a vital role in the control of immunity, tolerance, and inflammation. It manages immune response via an initial action on the cells of the innate immune system and thus acts as an endogenous regulator of both inflammatory and adaptive immune responses. Thymosin alpha-1’s immunomodulatory activities are centered primarily on the augmentation of T-cell function.
Semax Nasal Spray
Semax is a heptapeptide and synthetic analogue of a fragment of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), ACTH (4-10). Semax is a neuroprotective peptide predominantly a nootropic, which has neurogenic/ neurorestorative properties. Semax rapidly elevates the levels and expression of the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and its signaling receptor TrkB in the hippocampus. Semax is currently being prescribed for numerous conditions like anxiety, memory improvement, nerve regeneration, strokes, ADHD, Parkinson’s, ALS, and Alzheimer’s.
Selank Nasal Spray
Selank is a synthetic regulatory peptide. Selank has pronounced anxiolytic activity. It acts as a stable neuropsychotropic, antidepressant, and antistress drug that relieves aggression and fear reaction. Selank has a nootropic action, which positively influences the formation of memory and learning processes. Selank has similar properties to the physiological effects of benzodiazepines. Selank has strong antianxiety and neuroprotective effects in the treatment of generalized anxiety disorders.
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. 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
SS-31 (from the Szeto-Schiller (SS) family of peptides) is very unique in its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and highly concentrate within the inner membrane of the mitochondria (IMM). SS-31 shows promise in the treatment of many neurodegenerative and cognitive disorders such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer’s, Friedreich’s, and glaucoma.
Anti-aging research is looking at SS-31 for its ability to reverse mitochondrial dysfunction and premature cell death. The mitochondrial dysfunction theory of aging and the free radical theory of aging are intertwined and both would be addressed by the intracellular benefits of SS-31.
