As we age, human growth hormone (HGH) levels decline. This results in the inability to maintain lean muscle mass, decreased recovery times, poor sleep quality, weight gain, and other “age-related” problems. Stracuzzi Wellness specializes in the treatment of HGH insufficiency and growth hormone optimization with the use of growth hormone-releasing peptides. 

 

Peptides are short chains of amino acids that stimulate the production and release of human growth hormone (HGH) from the pituitary gland. They bind to specific receptors in the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, triggering the release of HGH into the bloodstream. HGH is a vital hormone that plays an important role in promoting growth, development, and repair of tissues throughout the body. Growth hormone peptides have gained popularity to enhance athletic performance, promote muscle growth, and improve overall health and well-being.

Some of the benefits of peptide therapy are:

  • Increase in Growth Hormone secretion: The primary function of GHRPs is to stimulate the production and release of growth hormone (GH) from the pituitary gland, which is beneficial for muscle growth, fat loss, improved immune system function, and overall well-being.

 

  • Muscle Growth and Recovery: GHRPs can help to stimulate muscle growth by increasing protein synthesis and enhancing recovery time after workouts. Additionally, GHRPs can increase the amount of testosterone released in the body, promoting muscle growth.

 

  • Improved Sleep: People who take GHRPs often report better sleep patterns and improved sleep quality. This is because GHRPs help to regulate natural sleep cycles by promoting deep, restful sleep.

 

  • Increased Fat Loss: GHRPs can stimulate the release of growth hormone from the pituitary gland, which can help to increase lipolysis (the breakdown of fats) and promote the use of stored fat as fuel.

 

  • Better Immune System Function: GHRPs can also improve immune function by stimulating the production of white blood cells responsible for fighting off infections and viruses.

Overall, the benefits of GHRPs include increased muscle mass, faster recovery, improved sleep patterns, better immune function, and helping decrease the signs of aging due to skin changes.

We offer multiple growth hormone peptides that can be used alone with testosterone replacement therapy. We offer a peptide-only protocol and treatment option with a combination, or “stacks,” of peptides that make the peptides work better when used together.

 

These Human Growth Hormone Peptides

are safe, affordable, and very effective! 

The “Heal Like Wolverine” stack

A combination of peptides that have a synergistic effect to help with tissue, joint, and ligament healing. 

More Details

The peptides used in this stack are CJC-1295, Ipamorelin, BPC-157, and TB-500.  They are all peptides that are commonly for their purported benefits in promoting muscle growth, improving recovery, and reducing inflammation.

CJC-1295 and Ipamorelin are growth hormone secretagogues that stimulate the release of human growth hormone (HGH) from the pituitary gland. This can lead to increased muscle mass, improved recovery, and reduced body fat.

BPC-157 is a peptide that has been shown to promote healing and reduce inflammation in animal studies. It is believed to stimulate the production of new blood vessels and increase blood flow to injured tissues, which can speed up the healing process.

TB-500 is a peptide that is similar in structure to a hormone called thymosin beta-4. It is believed to promote the formation of new blood vessels, increase muscle growth, and improve recovery by reducing inflammation.

The “Build Me Up Protocol.” 

A combination of peptides/products to help build muscle and to help prevent muscle wasting and sarcopenia.

More Details

IGF1-LR3 is an insulin-like growth factor 1 that is a highly anabolic hormone released in the liver and the peripheral tissues in response to the GH so that a new muscle can be built. The main work of IGF-1 is to build new muscle tissues by promoting nitrogen retention and protein synthesis. It differs from the original IGF-1 in that it possesses an arginine instead of a glutamic acid and an additional 13 amino acids. As a result, it is approximately three times more potent than IGF-1 and possesses a significantly longer half-life of about 20– 30 hours (compared to IGF-1’s half-life of about 12–15 hours).

MK-677 is a hormone secretion compound that stimulates the pituitary gland to increase the production of human growth hormone. Ibutamoren is a long-acting, orally-active, selective, and non-peptide agonist of the ghrelin receptor and a growth hormone secretagogue, imitating the growth hormone (GH)-stimulating action of the endogenous hormone ghrelin.

Levocarnitine, also known as L-carnitine, is a vital nutrient in energy production and metabolism. It is an amino acid-like substance naturally produced in the body and found in certain foods, such as meat and dairy products.

 

The “Fat Burning” protocol.

A combination of peptides/agents to help target body fat.
We have a few different options for this peptide protocol stack:

More Details

The ultimate fat-burning protocol program would combine tesamorelin/ipamorelin and Aod9604 in AM.

The alternative protocol would combine sermorelin/ipamorelin with an AOD-604.

Tesamorelin is a synthetic form of a peptide hormone called growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH). GHRH is produced in the hypothalamus and stimulates growth hormone release from the pituitary gland. Tesamorelin is used to treat patients with HIV-associated lipodystrophy, a condition that causes abnormal fat distribution in the body. It works by increasing the production of growth hormone, which can help reduce the amount of abdominal fat in these patients.

Ipamorelin is also a synthetic peptide that stimulates the production of growth hormones. It is a selective growth hormone secretagogue (GHS) that binds to specific pituitary gland receptors to trigger the growth hormone release. Ipamorelin has been investigated for its potential use in treating conditions such as growth hormone deficiency, osteoporosis, and obesity. It has also been studied for its potential anti-aging effects.

Sermorelin and Ipamorelin are two growth hormone-releasing peptides (GHRPs) that are often used as injectable therapy for various medical purposes. 

Sermorelin and Ipamorelin work by stimulating the body’s natural human growth hormone (HGH) production. HGH is a hormone essential for growth and development in children, and it also plays important roles in metabolism, muscle growth, and tissue repair in adults. However, as we age, our natural production of HGH decreases, which can lead to various symptoms and health issues.

The Sermorelin/Ipamorelin combo is often used as an alternative to traditional HGH therapy, which involves synthetic HGH injections. Unlike synthetic HGH, which can be expensive and cause unwanted side effects, the Sermorelin/Ipamorelin combo is designed to stimulate the body’s production of HGH, which can be a more natural and effective approach.

Benefits:

  • Improvements in wellbeing
  • Cognitive enhancement
  • Stronger hair and nails
  • Fat a loss and lean muscle gains

-has been shown to help regulate blood pressure

AOD-9604 is a modified form of amino acids 176-191 of the GH polypeptide. Investigators at MonashUniversity discovered that the fat-reducing effects of GH appear to be controlled by a small region near one end of the GH molecule. This region, which consists of amino acids 176-191, is less than 10% of the total size of the GH molecule and appears not to affect growth or insulin resistance. It works by mimicking how natural Growth Hormone regulates fat metabolism but without the adverse effects on blood sugar or growth seen with unmodified Growth Hormone. Like Growth Hormone, AOD 9604 stimulates lipolysis (the breakdown or destruction of fat). It inhibits lipogenesis (transforming nonfat food materials into body fat) in laboratory testing, animals, and humans. Recent findings have shown that AOD 9604 processes many other regenerative properties associated with growth hormone besides its fat-loss properties. Currently, trials are underway to demonstrate the application of AOD 9604 in osteoarthritis, hypercholesterolemia, and bone and cartilage repair. AOD 9604 has an excellent safety profile, recently obtaining Human GRAS status in the USA.

Benefits:

  • Reduces body fat.
  • Regulates fat metabolism.
  • Stimulates Lipolysis.
  • Inhibits Lipogenesis.
  • Triggers fat release.

 

Immunity boosting stack

A combination of agents helps boost the immune system. Combination of injectable glutathione, Thymulin with oral vitamin C/D/Zinc

More Details

Thymulin is a thymic hormone produced by thymic epithelial cells (TEC) known to induce intra- and extrathymic T-cell differentiation. Thymulin was isolated, sequenced, and characterized some 20 years ago and later identified as a thymic hormone involved in immunomodulation.  It has demonstrated that the neuro-endocrine system strongly influences the production and secretion of Thymulin.  Thymulin is an essential hormone for T lymphocyte differentiation and the normalization of T-helper cells to suppressor cells. Given its anti-inflammatory potential, Thymulin downregulates the release of inflammatory mediators, such as cytokines and chemokines, upregulates anti-inflammatory factors, such as interleukin (IL)-10, and exerts molecular control via the regulation of transcription factors and mediators.  The biological activity of Thymulin is dependent on equimolar interaction with zinc (Zn2+)

Glutathione is a naturally occurring antioxidant that is crucial in various bodily processes. Some of the potential benefits of glutathione include:

  • Antioxidant properties: Glutathione is a potent antioxidant that helps to protect the body against oxidative stress caused by free radicals. This can help to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Immune system support: Glutathione helps boost the immune system by enhancing the production of white blood cells, essential for fighting off infections.
  • Skin health: Glutathione has been shown to have skin-lightening properties and may help to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, age spots, and other skin discolorations.
  • Detoxification: Glutathione helps detoxify the body by binding to toxins and heavy metals and helping to eliminate them.
  • Anti-aging effects: Glutathione may help slow the aging process by reducing the damage caused by free radicals and promoting healthy cellular function.

The Ultimate “Forever Young Bundle

In addition to Hormone Replacement Therapy and previously mentioned GH peptides, we offer a comprehensive anti-aging protocol.

The main goals are to help prevent age-related diseases through different pathways and to help you feel better and younger.

A combination of SS-31, NAD, GHK-CU, MOTS-C, Glutathione, And Eptithalon

More Details

SS-31 is a synthetic peptide with potential therapeutic benefits for various medical conditions. It is also known as Bendavia or MTP-131.

SS-31 is a mitochondrial-targeted antioxidant, meaning that it specifically targets and protects the mitochondria in cells from oxidative damage. Mitochondria are the powerhouses of cells, responsible for producing energy for cellular functions. They are also involved in many other important processes, such as cell signaling, cell growth and differentiation, and cell death.

The protective effects of SS-31 on mitochondria have been shown to have potential benefits for a wide range of medical conditions that involve mitochondrial dysfunction, including neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular disease, metabolic disorders, and cancer. Some studies suggest that SS-31 may also have anti-aging effects by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation, two key factors that contribute to aging and age-related diseases.

NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a coenzyme essential for many biological processes in the human body. It plays a key role in cellular metabolism, energy production, DNA repair, and gene expression, among other functions.

There are two main forms of NAD: NAD+ and NADH. NAD+ is an oxidized NAD that accepts electrons during metabolic reactions, while NADH is a reduced form that donates electrons. The balance between NAD+ and NADH is crucial for maintaining optimal cellular function, and imbalances can contribute to various health problems.

NAD+ levels naturally decline with age, which has led to interest in using NAD+ supplementation as a potential anti-aging strategy. 

Research on the potential health benefits of NAD+ supplementation is still in the early stages. Still, some studies suggest that it may have potential therapeutic applications for various conditions, including age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, metabolic disorders such as diabetes and obesity, and cardiovascular disease.

GHK-CU, also known as a copper peptide, is a naturally occurring tripeptide (composed of three amino acids) that has been shown to have various potential therapeutic benefits when used in skincare products or as an injectable therapy.

GHK-Cu has been found to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It may also play a role in collagen production and wound healing in the skin, intestines, and hair follicles.

GHK-Cu is an injectable therapy for various medical conditions, including skin rejuvenation, wound healing, and hair regrowth.

MOTS-C is a recently discovered peptide and is believed to have potential health benefits when used as an injectable therapy. Here are some of the potential benefits of MOTS-C injection:

  • Improved metabolism: MOTS-C has been shown to activate the AMPK pathway, which is involved in cellular energy metabolism. This may help improve insulin sensitivity, glucose uptake, and fat metabolism, which could have potential benefits for conditions such as diabetes and obesity.
  • Anti-aging effects: MOTS-C has been shown to have potential anti-aging effects by improving mitochondrial function and reducing oxidative stress. This may help protect against age-related diseases and promote healthy aging.
  • Improved exercise performance: Some studies suggest that MOTS-C may improve muscle strength and endurance. This may be due to its effects on mitochondrial function and metabolism.
  • Potential neuroprotective effects: MOTS-C has been shown to have potential neuroprotective effects by reducing inflammation and oxidative stress in the brain. This may have potential benefits for conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

Glutathione is a naturally occurring antioxidant that is crucial in various bodily processes. Some of the potential benefits of glutathione include:

  • Antioxidant properties: Glutathione is a potent antioxidant that helps to protect the body against oxidative stress caused by free radicals. This can help to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Immune system support: Glutathione helps boost the immune system by enhancing the production of white blood cells, essential for fighting off infections.
  • Skin health: Glutathione has been shown to have skin-lightening properties and may help to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, age spots, and other skin discolorations.
  • Detoxification: Glutathione helps detoxify the body by binding to toxins and heavy metals and helping to eliminate them.
  • Anti-aging effects: Glutathione may help slow the aging process by reducing the damage caused by free radicals and promoting healthy cellular function.

Epitalon is a synthetic peptide consisting of four amino acids (Ala-Glu-Asp-Gly). It has been the subject of research into potential anti-aging and health benefits. Here are some of the potential benefits of epithalon:

  • Anti-aging effects: Epithalon has been shown to have potential anti-aging effects by lengthening telomeres, which are protective caps on the ends of chromosomes that shorten as we age. By lengthening telomeres, epithalon may help slow aging and reduce the risk of age-related diseases.
  • Improved immune function: Epithalon has been shown to improve immune function by increasing the activity of natural killer cells, which are white blood cells that play an important role in the immune response. This may have potential benefits for conditions such as viral infections and cancer.
  • Potential cancer prevention: Some studies suggest that epithalon may have potential cancer-preventive effects by inhibiting the growth of cancer cells and promoting apoptosis (cell death) of cancer cells.
  • Improved sleep: Epithalon has been shown to improve sleep quality by increasing levels of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep-wake cycles. This may have potential benefits for conditions such as insomnia and sleep disorders.

**Important to note that these peptide agents are off-label. Although many studies support the use of these agents, the FDA has not approved them yet.
