Peptides

Peptides are short chains of amino acids. In your body, peptides assist in performing many vital functions that support normal body processes.

What are peptides?

Peptides are a type of protein made up of short chains of amino acids. Your body naturally produces them throughout your life. 

Your body has more than 7,000 naturally occurring peptides. These peptides serve many functions, but primarily work as communicators, telling your body what cells need to be on and what cells need to be off.

How do peptides support health and well-being?

Each strand of peptide your body makes performs specific functions. These peptides provide the instructions that support many body processes that support health and well-being, such as:

  • Muscle building
  • Brain activity
  • Digestion
  • Repair of damaged tissue
  • Support for heart, lung, and kidney function

Peptides also start or stop the production of sex hormones (testosterone and estrogen) and turn on and off the production of collagen (a structural protein that keeps your skin strong and resilient).

How does peptide therapy work?

Gentera Center for Precision Medicine takes a patient-centered approach to care. It uses an approach called precision medicine, meaning the providers develop treatment plans that meet your exact needs. 

The practice runs extensive diagnostic tests to assess your general health, DNA health, and risk of future health problems. This objective data helps your provider better understand your exact health needs to develop a precise treatment plan. 

Researchers and scientists have identified and synthesized the chains of peptides involved in age-related degeneration and cancer-fighting. Your provider uses the information gathered from your evaluation to determine what peptides work best for you.

Your provider may combine your peptides with other therapies, such as advanced intravenous (IV) therapy or NAD therapy to revitalize physical and emotional well-being. 

What are the types of peptides therapy?

Gentera Center for Precision Medicine has many targeted peptide therapies. Some of these therapies include:

  • Peptide therapy for hormonal regulation
  • Peptide therapy for sexual health
