Commonly Used Peptides

DSIP (Delta Sleep-Inducing Peptide)

During delta sleep, growth hormone and IGF-1 are secreted. They are the hormones responsible for stem cell regeneration and cellular reparative processes. DSIP (Delta Sleep-Inducing Peptide) is a peptide that induces delta sleep within hours of falling asleep and contributes to the mentioned reparative processes in our body.


MOT-C is a unique peptide that has been scientifically shown to improve mitochondrial biogenesis. The mitochondria exist in every human cell, including stem cells; it’s the power plant of each cell. If the mitochondria are functioning inefficiently, the cell is unable to regenerate. Mitochondria biogenesis is essential for life.

BPC 157, CJC 1295, Ipamorelin, and IGF-1

These peptides can promote hormone growth and repair damaged tissues in the bones, ligaments, joints, and connective tissue. They do this by instructing the cells in skeletal muscle, bone, cartilage, fibroblasts, as well as heart and lung tissue to regenerate. These peptide therapies can also expand lean muscle mass to prevent sarcopenia (loss of muscle tissue).


Hexarelin is a peptide that reduces fat mass while expanding lean muscle mass and stimulating the body’s growth hormone. It also protects the heart muscle with a cardioprotective effect and can regenerate stem cells.

AOD 9064

AOD 9064 is a peptide that works to melt away body fat stored within the abdomen that can cause inflammation and ongoing oxidation. This peptide can reduce the fatty issue and, therefore, prevent the body from developing the following diseases:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Obesity
  • Dementia
  • Alzheimer’s disease

Melanotan II

Melanotan II is a peptide that stimulates fat loss and growth hormone release while also increasing libido or sex drive in both men and women. It can also enhance skin pigmentation.

Bremelanotide PT 141

Bremelanotide PT 141 is a highly specific peptide that addresses erectile dysfunction and enhances libido (sex drive) in both men and women. This peptide crosses the blood-brain barrier, bypassing the vascular system and acting directly on the central nervous system to improve erectile dysfunction. Bremelanotide PT 141 can be taken orally or as a nasal spray, making its use convenient and discreet.

Follistatin 344 & 315

Follistatin 344 and 315 are peptides that inhibit muscle myostatin, which prevents muscles from growing; follistatin blocks the action of myostatin so muscles may grow in size. Lean muscle mass is essential for a healthy metabolism. Without muscle mass, people would waste away and expose themselves to multiple disease states like insulin resistance, sarcopenia, heart and lung failure, as well as dementia and stroke.


Cerebrolysin is a small and highly specific peptide that can enhance cognitive functions such as memory, creativity, and motivation. It can also be used to address symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, post-head-trauma dementia, and post-stroke neuronal recovery.

Thymosin Alpha-1

Thymosin Alpha-1 is a unique peptide used to treat Lyme’s disease, fibromyalgia, autoimmune diseases, irritable bowel syndrome, and chronic infections like hepatitis B and hepatitis C. It’s unique in balancing the immune system.

Thymosin Beta-4

Thymosin Beta-4 is a peptide that upregulates the cellular wound healing processes and downregulates cellular oxidation and inflammation. Oxidation and inflammation impair cellular repair and stem cell regeneration.

SARMs S4 & S22

SARMs S4 and S22 are androgen receptor peptides that can bind with testosterone receptors in the body while mimicking the effect of testosterone without the unpleasant side effects. SARMs increase muscle mass and strength, promote fat loss, and increase bone density and libido.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are peptides?

    What are peptides?

    Peptides are made of short amino acid chains that can attach to receptors on the surface of your cells. Some peptides tell specific cells to produce hormones (such as testosterone, thyroid, neuropeptides in the brain, and many others) and to release them in the body.

  • Who can benefit from peptide therapy?

    Who can benefit from peptide therapy?

    People of all ages, including those between the age of 80 and 90, are capable of building lean muscle mass through nutritional support, resistance training, and peptide therapies. Without muscle mass, people can waste away and expose themselves to multiple diseases.

  • How can I maintain my results?

    How can I maintain my results?

    Eating a nutritionally healthy plant-based diet, exercising on a routine basis, reducing stress, and minimizing your exposure to environmental toxins can help you maintain your results and slow the natural aging process.
