Peptides are short chains of amino acids, which are the building blocks of every living thing. From producing collagen in your skin and muscles to telling your stomach when to feel hungry and full, peptides have specific roles within your body.
Peptides play an important role in cell regeneration and healing, too. They have a lot in common with proteins, but they’re smaller — and research shows they may be more versatile than proteins because of it.
That’s why peptide therapy is the latest trend in regenerative medicine: it captures the power of peptides, concentrates it, and delivers it directly to your body. At LeHeal Biogenix HQ, LLC, Lyle Robinson, DC, APRN-C, CNE, and our team are proud to offer this groundbreaking therapy to our patients.
Here’s everything you need to know about what peptide therapy is and what it could do for you.
Your body relies on peptides to regulate essential bodily functions, support cell regeneration, and promote healing. Peptides can perform a variety of different functions in your body, and different peptides act as growth factors, hormones, neurotransmitters, and even anti-infective agents.
Your body makes peptides from the food you eat, and some of the best sources of peptides are dairy products, soy, eggs, and grains. Though it’s possible to get all the peptides you need from your diet, your digestive system doesn’t always operate at peak efficiency. That means your body might not be able to process and use peptides effectively, and your health may suffer.
It also means that supplemental peptides can have a positive effect on your health. There are lots of cosmetic products and nutritional supplements available with added peptides, but one of the most effective methods is peptide therapy.
At LeHeal Biogenix HQ, we do peptide therapy injections to enhance your wellbeing.
Our peptide therapy injections contain a custom blend of ingredients. Depending on your unique needs, peptide therapy can:
Peptide therapy taps into your body’s natural healing response, to regenerate damaged tissue and restore optimal wellness.
Peptides are naturally found in the human body. Because peptide therapy contains similar ingredients, the risk of side effects or adverse reaction is quite low.
Curious to learn what peptide therapy could offer you? Schedule a consultation with Dr. Robinson and our team. We start with a full evaluation of your health and your needs, then make a customized treatment recommendation for you.
Two of the most popular peptides we administer are TB-500 and BPC-157. Both peptides support tissue regeneration to speed healing and reduce pain. BPC-157 may also improve mental state and help reduce high blood pressure.
No matter which peptides are right for you, peptide therapy is quick and comfortable. You only need one injection, and the whole process takes about five minutes in the office.
Once your injection is done, you’re free to go about your day. Your body starts metabolizing the peptides right away. Talk to Dr. Robinson to find out when you can expect to start noticing results and whether you’re a candidate for a series of peptide therapy shots.
