Anti Ageing Peptides

One area of growth in the anti-ageing industry which we provide to qualified patients is peptide supplementation. Throughout the course of one’s life, one major regulatory system has been ignored by conventional medicine. This is the hormonal system.

Why Anti-Ageing Peptides?

We are realising that the symptoms often attributed to ageing could merely be a symptom of hormonal deficiency. Dependent on diet, lifestyle choices and environment, some people age prematurely, whilst others more gracefully.

Regardless, by the time we all get to around 30 years of age, there is one fact which is commonplace in our life of being human and that is the decline of our most important hormone for the maintenance of health and wellbeing and that is Growth Hormone.

The science of anti-ageing and longevity has shifted in the past years. Today to successfully anti-age, one must combine a number of methods ensuring the biological components are in place.

The Benefits of Anti-Ageing Peptides

Improved Regenerative Sleep

Normalises sleep patterns, ensuring rest is regenerative, supporting both muscular hypertrophy and healing.

Improves Cognition, Memory and Mood

Improved cognitive functioning and mood enhancement

Improved Heart Health

Adults with GH deficiency have an increased risk for cardiovascular disease, which leads to a decreased life expectancy.

Improved Sexual Response

Increased libido and sexual functioning in both males and females

Improved Immune Function

Enhancement of the immune system response

Growth Hormone Decline

As we age, our production of ‘Growth Hormone’ declines significantly within our bodies. After adolescence GH levels drop to 3/4 of adult levels. GH acts as a repair and maintenance hormone.

Improved Skin Elasticity

Increased stimulation of type 2 collagen improves skin elasticity in the prevention of wrinkles

Increased Fat Loss

GH accelerates lipolysis, the breakdown of fat and converts triglycerides into glycerol and free fatty acids. Decreases visceral fat storage and improves insulin sensitivity.

Increased Muscle Strength

Increased muscle strength and physical capacity through stimulation of collagen synthesis in the skeletal muscle and tendons. Improvements in thermoregulation and body composition observed.

Increased bone density

Increased bone density and bone regeneration. IGF-1 and GH stimulate bone formation and bone resorbing cells increasing bone mass. GH speeds up fracture healing without adverse systemic effects. GH enhances the availability of collagen during the wound-healing process. Reduces the risk of Osteoporosis, fragility and bone fracture.

Risk Factors for Premature Ageing

People from all walks of life experience the gradual degeneration of cells. We all must age, yet how well we age depends on how well we treated our bodies. Numerous factors affect how well we age, many of which we have total control over.

Because it has become clear that our hormones have a great deal to do with anti-ageing, peptides have been to developed to address the hormonal deficits. By taking a proactive approach to anti-ageing, we have it in our power to slow down premature ageing, prevent the onset of certain diseases and live a quality life, as we enter midlife and into our senior years. Peptides are now considered a viable anti-ageing treatment that has the potential to restore the body to a youthful and regenerative state.

Dietary and Lifestyle

  • Promotion of normal digestive processes – gut flora balance + proper elimination
  • The second phase of detoxification – repair gut barrier function, stimulate and supports liver detoxification pathways, eliminate potential allergenic dietary factors. High blood glucose is closely associated with rapid tissue ageing and chronic disease progression. An insulin zone diet is designed to regulate insulin levels through maintaining a 40:30:30 calorific ratio of carbohydrates to proteins to fats.
  • Exercise (especially heavy weight lifting) will retard the loss of muscle (sarcopenia) and bone (osteoporosis) and maintain muscle and bone strength.
  • Stress management techniques should be implemented.
  • Minimise foods that are pro-inflammatory in the diet. This includes saturated fats (meats, poultry, dairy), sugar, and refined and processed foods. If you are a patient that is sensitive to antibiotics then only eat organic meats so you can avoid antibiotic residues.
  • Choose foods that are high in essential omega 3 fatty acids like oily fish, seeds and nuts.  Eat a minimally processed diet rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients and bioflavonoids.
  • Protein is essential for connective tissue support, and should be consumed during each meal.
  • Nutrients to support digestive health including fibre should be consumed.
  • Smoking cessation is the highest priority in currently smoking patients.
  • Minimise intake of caffeine, alcohol and salt.
  • Diet – whole, real, fresh, organic unprocessed food, locally grown and in season, lots of fruit/vegetables/fibre, high-quality protein each meal, omega 3 fatty acids.
