There are two main functions of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) — growth and metabolism. First, during puberty, children experience rapid periods of growth stimulated by bone and cartilage growth from HGH. Then, because the body is experiencing such an output of energy and production, the metabolism increases, so more fuel is added to keep this process in cycle. However, the aging process interrupts and slows the natural production of HGH. At RevitalyzeMD in Knoxville Growth Hormone Peptide programs are offered by Dr. Debra Durst, your anti-aging and sexual wellness expert. Schedule your consultation with one of our providers today to learn more about our growth hormone and peptide therapy and see if you are an ideal candidate for this treatment.
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a natural hormone released from the anterior pituitary. HGH starts to decline as we age at a rate of 1% a year. That decline can be higher than 75% by middle age.
As growth hormone declines, we start to notice an increase in body fat, a decrease in muscle mass, skin changes, thinning of hair, lack of energy, brain fog, and low libido. If a drug could do all that GH does, it would be a magical drug. It would reverse all the functional changes just mentioned. While you can supplement with low doses of HGH, it is expensive and carries risks. There are more physiologic ways to stimulate your own release of Growth Hormone and therefore increase HGH levels. When GH is again increased, the body starts to respond in positive ways. You begin to reverse all the effects of the decline and “turn back the time” in the aging process. For Growth Hormone Peptide therapy Knoxville patients can expect the very best!
Stimulate Growth Hormones
Growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) is released from the hypothalamus and stimulates Growth hormone release from the anterior pituitary. GH is released from the pituitary in spikes at night. These are short, strong spikes. The strength of Growth Hormone spikes starts decreasing in the 30s; after that, it declines by one percent a year.
There are no adverse effects of natural GH in the body. But supplementing with exogenous HGH can have adverse effects. It can be risky and even increase the growth of a cancer present when started. It also can have adverse effects on the heart or bones. Part of the risk is the prolonged effect you get with exogenous HGH Peptides. It lasts longer than the body’s own physiologic spikes. But the most significant risk is that giving HGH can shut down your own body’s production of GH.
Fortunately, there are more physiologic ways to increase the body’s release of growth hormone. It is vital you receive your HGH Peptide treatments with a licensed physician, such as Dr. Debra Durst or one of our highly skilled providers. Over-the-counter or illicit forms of HGH may be harmful to your health. RevitalyzeMD ensures you receive the proper dosage using devices to safeguard your health and safety during your treatment.
Peptides are synthesized amino acid sequences (proteins) that simulate certain neurotransmitters or hormones in the body. These proteins stimulate the effects of those substances in the body. GH peptides fall into two categories—GHRH and Peptides.
These are proteins that act like GHRH -on the pituitary to release GH. They are stimulating the body’s own release of GH. These peptides include:
GHRP (Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides): These proteins inhibit the negative feedback on the pituitary, thereby increasing GH in a different way. These peptides include:
At RevitalyzeMD, we have formulated a GH peptide program that is medically managed and utilizes peptides to increase GH as we age. Our program aims to increase your body’s own Growth Hormone for all the beneficial effects on the body. We use Growth Hormone Releasing Hormones (GHRH) and peptides to increase the secretion of Growth Hormone in a more physiologic fashion. It is called the GH program because it is not necessarily growth hormone, but the effects are the same.
Replenishing your body at the cellular level enables you to look and feel better. Of course, there is no magic formula for turning back time. However, your hormones are in balance, and nutritional needs are met, your body functions better—helping you to look and feel younger.
The starting place for any hormonal optimization or peptide program is a thorough evaluation by a provider. This will include blood work to see if you are a candidate for treatment. If you are a candidate for treatment, the provider will determine which treatment is best for you. The GH peptide program duration is at least six months in duration. It requires a commitment on the part of the patient to realize all the beneficial effects. Some effects will be felt immediately, but body composition changes take three to six months of treatment.
It is a medically monitored program. Body analysis, medical supervision, and the peptides are all included in the program. With Growth Hormone Peptides Knoxville patients are injected through a small needle right under the skin. The injectable peptides are the only ones that RevitalyzeMD believes to be beneficial in stimulating the release of GH needed and achieving the desired results. As part of the program, you will get the education you need on peptides and usage. Further, you will be monitored for fitness and nutritional goals.
Some medical issues can be contraindicated in peptide therapy. The provider will review these conditions to make sure you are a candidate. Some conditions are:
Interesting side-note: There are currently over 60 FDA-approved peptides. In fact, insulin was the first peptide approved in the US. There are many different indications for peptides, and there will be blogs to follow on other uses of Peptides.
