How To Gain Muscle Mass with Peptide Therapy
Posted on: June 24, 2019 in Category: Peptides
Loss of muscle mass is common and likely to occur in both men and women as they age. While some patients can gain lean muscle mass through diet and exercise, others are not so fortunate.
Thankfully, at Sand Institute, we provide peptide therapies to patients who would like to regain muscle mass and improve their overall quality of life.
What Are Peptides?
They can be described as mini-proteins—usually injected in peptide shots—that produce fast-acting, short chains of amino acids that attach to the receptors along the surface of your cells. The acids then promote the functionality of the cells and stimulate cell growth. They can be customized to address a range of health and aesthetic concerns.
While your body naturally produces and carries peptides, they can begin to deteriorate due to a poor diet and other unhealthy lifestyle choices that can also affect your body weight. Peptides can act as hormones that send information throughout your bloodstream from one tissue to another. They will then mimic or influence the natural peptides inside your body.
There are various types of peptides to help improve your body’s overall function and health. While some peptides are used to balance and produce healthy hormone levels, others can increase mass in certain muscle groups.
How Can They Help Me Gain Muscle?
Muscle mass is essential to maintain a long and healthy life. As we age, it is known that a person can lose at least three to five percent of their muscle fibers, which is then replaced by fatty tissue. Anti-aging peptide injections can prevent or correct this muscle loss by improving cellular regeneration.
Without a sufficient amount of muscle mass, your body can begin to waste away and become vulnerable to certain diseases. Peptides like CJC 1295, Ipamorelin and BPC 157 (also called Body Protection Compound) can increase muscle growth and weight loss by repairing damaged muscles, joints, and tissue. During your treatment, the peptides injections are administered, releasing a growth hormone to build muscle mass efficiently and repair damaged body tissues.
What Are Other Benefits of Peptides?
Many patients can benefit from peptide therapy, including skin rejuvenation and hair loss. Peptides can be used as a tool for weight loss and produce lean muscle mass and nutritional support that your body needs to survive. They can also help your cells generate energy to help you look and feel younger.
