Peptide Therapy: The Future

Peptide Therapy OWM Buffalo

OWM Buffalo is proud and excited to add peptide therapy to its list of cutting edge regenerative treatments. Buffalo and Western New York, peptides are here to change the way you think of medical treatments for ever!

 

 

What are Peptides:

Peptides are naturally occurring molecules that our bodies use to build strength and improve weakness. These incredible molecules are able to optimize the function of cells of organs and tissues and keep them humming at a youthful level.

Peptides are signaling molecules that enhance and preserve normal function of cells. These peptides improve cell’s efficiency in eliminating waste and it’s mitochondrial function. Loss of both is seen as responsible for cell aging and ultimately, death.

 

Although studies on peptides have been ongoing since the twenties, the first clinical widely used peptide, Insulin, was released in 1982.

Since then 600 therapeutic peptides have been developed and 60 have been FDA approved.

Recent scientific advances have allowed scientists to stabilize and increase duration of effectiveness of peptides and better understand how the peptides target different tissues and organs.

 

Peptide Therapy uses include:
  • antiviral and antimicrobial therapy
  • wound healing
  • PRP and Stem Cell therapy optimization
  • antiaging and wellness
  • libido and sexual function
  • osteoarthritis and general healing and repair
  • skin and hair rejuvenation and recovery.
  • autoimmune disease.
  • improved REM and slow wave sleep

 

How Are Peptides Different from Growth Hormones:

Peptides are a safe and effective alternative to exogenous Growth Hormones.

Peptide therapy is relatively inexpensive costing between $200 to $300 per month.

Growth hormone treatments cost thousands of dollars a month. Growth Hormone therapy creates a supra physiologic stimulation of cells. This leads to cell hyperactivity which can in turn lead to edema, joint pain, increased potential for development of  diabetes and cancer. Growth Hormone treatment can also shut down natural production of Growth Hormone causing serious health issues when stopped.

 

OWM Buffalo Peptide Therapy by Condition:
Peptide Molecule

Anti-Aging/Wellbeing, Injury Recovery:

CJC 1295/ Ipomorellin:

This GHRH/ GHRP combination stimulates ideal, physiologic release of growth hormone and regulates the release pulse to produce a natural rise and fall of the hormone preventing Growth Hormone related side effects.

 

Sleep Induction and Improvement:

DSIP

CJC 1295/ Ipomerellin

 

Skin Repair and Rejuvenation:

GHK -CU:

In cosmetic products, it has been found to tighten loose skin and improve elasticity, skin

density, and firmness, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce photodamage, and

hyperpigmentation, and increase keratinocyte proliferation.

 

Hair Growth; In combination with PRP:

GHK-CU:

When applied to hair follicles it stimulates hair growth and prolongs the growth ( anagen) phase of the hair growth cycle.

Thymosin Beta-4: when applied to the scalp, stimulates stem cell migration to the hair follicle.

 

 

Male and Female Sexual Dysfunction, Improvement of Sexual Experience:

PT-141:

PT-141, or bremelanotide, is a synthetic, central melanocortin receptor agonist that increases α- melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH) in the body. It has been reported to aid in sexual experiences for men and women.7,8 PT-141 is a deaminated derivative and likely metabolite of Melanotan II, another synthetic melanocortin receptor agonist initially used for tanning purposes. Bremelanotide was synthesized in 2000 when trials began.

Unlike the FDA approved PDE5 inhibitors( Viagra, Cialis) that improved sexual function by improving nitric oxide and vascular function, PT-141 works on the CNS, thus eliciting a more desirous sexual response.11 Of the 5 meanocortin receptors (1-5), PT-141 has the highest affinity for melanocortin receptor 4 (MC4R). In the hypothalamus, α-MSH suppresses appetite (MC4R receptor), with MC4R defects are reported to be a cause for autosomal dominant obesity, accounting for approximately 6% of all cases of early onset obesity.12 MC4R stimulation also contributes to improved sexual function in both men (improving penile erections) and women (increasing desire and arousal).

 

Autoimmune Disease ( Lupus, Chron’s, IBD, Chronic Fatigue, Lyme Disease), Acute injury Repair:

Thymosin Alpha 1:

Thymosin α1 (Tα1) is considered to be a promising immunomodulatory drug and could balance immunity and tolerance in immune tolerance and autoimmunity.

Ta1 is pleiotropic – improves innate immunity when needed, down regulates immunity when not needed. Ta1 is a thymic peptide that demonstrates a profound ability to restore immune system homeostasis in different physiological and pathological conditions (i.e., viral infections, cancer, immunodeficiency, vaccination support and immumosenescence) acting as multitasking protein depending on the host state of inflammation or immune dysfunction

Thymosin Beta 4:

BPC-157

 

Natural Testosterone Optimization:

Kisspeptin, DISP

 

Brain Injury, Degenerative Nerve and Brain Conditions, Peripheral Neuropathy, Focal Nerve Damage Repair:

Cerebrolysin:

Neuroprotective and neuro-repair, causes peripheral and central neuronal stimulation. Cerebrolysin has been proven to have neurotrophic action similar to nerve growth factors causing peripheral and central neuronal stimulation. It improves efficiency within the brain’s aerobic metabolic processes and improves intracellular peptide synthesis. The neuroprotective properties of this nootropic agent help to shield neurons from lactocidosis, to prevent formation of free radicals and to decrease neurotoxic action of certain amino acids.

Promising benefits of Cerebrolysin on functional improvement in MS patients have been published in 2016 in a Russian Journal of Neurology and Psychiatry:

“Cerebrolysin’s positive role in the stimulation of remyelination process in MS has been confirmed by CNE( comprehensive neurophysiological examinations) and the selected treatment regimen has demonstrated its safety. Effect of the drug appear to be due to its composition: so according to a group of authors found that investigated the drug contained fragments of tubulin, actin and myelin basic protein, all of which are necessary to ensure non-specific trophic regenerated CNS myelin sheath”

Healing Of Gut Ulcerations, Wounds, General Body Repair:

BPC –157:

Experimentally BPC-157 has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments.

In addition, BPC 157 protects organs and prevents ulcers of the stomach.

BPC-157 acts systemically in the digestive tract to combat leaky gut, IBS, gastro-intestinal cramps, and Crohn’s disease.

This peptide is also shown to decrease pain in damaged areas. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears and damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide.

 

 

Arthritis Related Stiffness and Pain:

AOD 9604+ HA

Enhances cartilage regeneration – done in conjunction with either PRP or Stem Cell injections.

Has been shown to improve join pain, stiffness
