Anti Ageing Peptides

Ageing – Its Inevitable – Ageing Well – Its Possible!

Whether we like it or not, the inevitability of ageing is a part of life. Numerous factors affect how well we age, many of which we have total control over.

Undoubtedly if you consume a healthy diet, exercise regularly, meditate and avoid exposure to pollutants, you will age more gracefully than the likes of a person who lives on the run, scarfing down fast food, cigarettes and alcohol on a regular basis.
We now have the tools to obtain optimum hormone levels. Peptides are gaining leverage as an anti ageing treatment option that could aid in restoring the body to a more youthful state.

People from all walks of life experience the gradual degeneration of cells. We will all age, yet how well we age depends on how well we treated our bodies. Those who have been health conscious for most of their lives may look and feel better than others who knowingly sabotaged their health in their early years.

Ageing – The Decline of Growth Hormone within our Bodies

Decline of HGH with Age - Anti-Ageing
As we age, our production of ‘Growth Hormone’ declines significantly within our bodies. After adolescence GH levels drop by 3/4 to adult levels. GH acts as a repair and maintenance hormone. As everything within the body ages, we have a lack of GH to thank for this degeneration. On the flip side, if one were to increase GH in the body to that of an average 30 year old, one could essentially slow the degeneration of the body. The slow steady decline of GH production (about 1.5% year) that occurs in men and women from their late 20’s (called Somatopause) means that with every year that passes the ability to sustain and gain benefit from this anti- ageing treatment program is waning.

The controversial nature of anti-ageing peptides

Many of you may be scared and unsure of the safety of peptides for age rejuvenation due to its controversial nature and conflicting information circling the web. This is why Peptide Clinics take the initial assessment and on-going monitoring of our treatment programs so seriously. Not only do we want our patients to feel secure they are getting the best product potency but we also want to assure the safe administration of our anti ageing treatments for optimised results. Our hormone doctor and supportive team are here for your every step of the way.

Anti Ageing Peptides for Supplementation and Optimisation of Hormone Levels

The reality however is that we all age physiologically and hormones play a major part in our ability to slow the hands on the clock of time. Hormones are substances that are produced and secreted in one part of the body and that then travel via the blood to cause effects on other parts of the body. Most hormone levels decline as we age, and therefore the effects of these hormones decline proportionally. This leads to decreased cell and body function, and eventually to loss of vision, memory, mobility and independence. Everyone suffers a decline in hormone production as they age. Whether you exercise and eat healthily, or not, we will all experience this decline in hormone production. Everyone has the option to reverse the effects of ageing using Peptide Supplements. Imagine the results you could obtain if you were to restore your body and mind to when you were 30 years old.

To fight ageing, and increase vitality, we must manage these conditions and promote correct physiological processes. Ageing well, is up to you. It is up to you to eat healthy, exercise regularly and halt exposure to toxins. It is up to you to do the research for yourself and look outside your scope of comfort. Do you really know what you are eating at the end of the day. Where you are sourcing your nutrients from? Whether these nutrients are even being absorbed? The more you know the easier it will be for you to age well.

Risk Factors for Premature Ageing


 

Factors that undermine health and accelerate premature ageing include:

  • Increased homocysteine levels – Causes narrowing and hardening of the arteries
    This leads to diminished blood flow through the affected arteries
    Elevated levels of homocysteine = Excessive blood clotting
  • Increased possibility of heart attacks
  • Increased chance of stroke
  • Can cause deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism
  • Excessive consumption of simple sugars, especially fructose.
  • Excessive production of insulin
  • Poor glucose metabolism.
  • Excessive exposure to sunlight.
  • Excessive production of cortisol.
  • Inflammation plays a central role in the ageing process.
  • Free radical exposure is one of the main factors in the ageing process.
  • Oxidative damage to DNA and the mitochondria accelerates ageing.
  • Tobacco smoking accelerates the ageing process.
  • Exposure to toxins and endocrine disrupting chemicals ie) heavy metals, preservatives, colourings, flavourings, insecticides, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides etc
  • Immunological dysfunction (e.g. autoimmunity, inflammation, infections, allergies)
  • Nutritional deficiencies – learn more about nutritional science
Anti Ageing Diet and Lifestyle


Dietary and lifestyle guidelines may assist in the management of ageing:The ageing process - how to anti-age.

  • 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.
