Peptides Q & A

What are peptides?

Peptides are amino acid strings that are the foundations of proteins. Your body produces many different peptides. Peptides play an important role in skin health, muscle growth, healing, brain health, immune function, and more. 

Some prescription medications for diseases like diabetes include synthetic peptides. There is also a wide range of synthetic peptides available through oral supplements, infusions, and injections.  

When might I need peptide therapy?

The Alternative Physical Medicine of Colorado team may recommend peptide therapy in a variety of situations or for conditions, such as:

  • Auto accident injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Lyme disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Auto-Immune conditions
  • Weight loss - body composition
  • Muscle building
  • Anti-aging
  • Arthritis

Peptides can help you target the source of your pain instead of simply treating the pain temporarily with medication. Additionally, peptides may help with weight management and other aspects of whole-body health. 

How do peptides relate to human growth hormone?

You might hear about peptides in connection with human growth hormone because some peptides can trigger your body to secrete its own natural human growth hormone. 

That, in turn, can offer remarkable anti-aging benefits ranging from preventing osteoporosis and obesity to reducing the physical changes that typically occur as you age. 

Natural peptides can help you grow stronger, giving you a more youthful body by essentially triggering your body to make more beneficial regenerative substances.  

What can I expect during peptide therapy?

Every peptide therapy session is unique to the individual patient. With dozens of different peptide categories, there are a vast amount of different options for treatment. 

The medical provider at Alternative Physical Medicine of Colorado starts with a comprehensive physical and metabolic assessment. That includes not only a hands-on exam but also a detailed discussion about your personal needs, challenges, and wellness goals. 

The team uses this information to design a peptide therapy plan to help you achieve your health goals. In most cases, you receive any necessary injections or infusions in the office. If you take oral peptide supplements, you receive a prescription that you take as directed at home.
