What are peptides?
Peptides are naturally-occuring amino acids that are composed of unique coding sequences. Your body uses peptides to signal to your organs that certain tasks need to be completed. This can include the production of certain hormones and proteins. As humans age, their bodies can lose the ability to properly create these peptides. There are several forms of peptides, one of which is semaglutide (GLP-1). This compound has been proven to help people effectively lose weight, but it must be prescribed by a professional weight loss doctor.
How can semaglutide (GLP-1) peptides help me lose weight?
In addition to boosting immunity and treating various illnesses, semaglutide (GLP-1) peptides can be also used to enhance weight loss. When correctly administered, this FDA-approved treatment can help to regulate the speed of your metabolism and promote lipolysis (your body’s process of breaking down fat). Peptides also inhibit your body’s ability to transform food into fat cells and decrease appetite, leading to even more weight loss. Peptides typically begin to work after 3-6 months, although some patients may notice results more quickly.
How are peptide treatments administered?
Semaglutide (GLP-1) peptides are delivered to your body via an injection. Most patients can perform the injection themselves, and the needle is so miniscule that it can barely be felt. Depending on the variety of peptide, they can also be injected with a nasal spray.
Do I have to maintain my diet and exercise routine?
While peptides can prove to be extremely helpful in terms of weight loss, they are most successful when paired with an effective diet and exercise routine. By maintaining proper nutrition, you ensure that your body has enough of the necessary vitamins and minerals to support the function of your peptide treatments. Regular exercise will also help you to shed fat and build muscle tone. Our professional weight loss doctors at WildBerryMD can help you devise a nutrition and exercise plan that works for your lifestyle.
What are the different types of peptides?
1) Semaglutide (GLP-1): This peptide is often used to treat type 2 diabetes and assist in long-term weight management. It has been known to promote the production of insulin and therefore boost your body’s ability to metabolize sugar.
2) AOD-Anti Obesity Peptide: AOD is a form of the human growth hormone. Studies have shown that AOD-Anti Obesity Peptide works by promoting the release of fat cells and inhibiting your body’s ability to create new fat cells.
3) CJC/Ipamorelin: This treatment is made of two peptides that work together to help you achieve your weight loss goals. CJC aids in the formation of new muscle tissue, while ipamorelin stimulates production of growth hormones and decreases your appetite.
4) BPC 157: Known for its ability to repair tissue (like muscles, tendons, and ligaments), BPC 157 can help calm stomach upset and facilitate healing in the gut lining. BPC 157 comes in capsule form, or injections.
Do peptides have any side effects?
Semaglutide (GLP-1) has very few side effects. However, it is still a prescription medication, which means that certain side effects may occur in select patients. They can include fluid retention, nausea, diarrhea, and soreness at the site of injection. However, many side effects are quickly alleviated with dose alterations and small adjustments in patients’ treatment plans.
