Guide to Peptide Therapy

Peptide therapy is an exciting breakthrough in medicine that can help rejuvenate and heal our bodies in a safe way. Since peptides are naturally found within our bodies, the risk for side effects is low. Vida Hormone Therapy & Integrative Health is a leading regenerative clinic that provides peptide therapy in Miami, Florida. 

What are Peptides?

Peptides are short-chain amino acids that are easier for our bodies to break down and absorb. These amino acids link to signals sent between cells in the body. They are the building blocks of protein and support collagen production as well as fight infections. Each peptide has its own function. 

What is Peptide Therapy?

Peptide therapy can be used to treat numerous conditions. Currently there are 80+ FDA approved peptides. This treatment can be very precise and effective due to the unique functions of each peptide. You may opt for intradermal injections to see quicker results. Peptide therapy can also be delivered through sprays, creams or oral capsules. You may have even seen peptides being advertised in anti-aging makeup and skincare products you can find at the store.

  • Stimulates the production of High Growth Hormones

What are commonly used Peptides?

These are just a few commonly used peptides. Some peptides are available over the counter, and some are available only through a physician. After a consultation, Dr. Lee will recommend the peptides you should consider for optimal health and wellness. 

Collagen: You may already be taking a collagen supplement. If not, you should definitely consider it. Collagen is a protein that holds everything together in our bodies. That is why as we age and produce less collagen skin starts wrinkling and joints start aching. 

Insulin: This peptide hormone controls the amount of glucose in the bloodstream. Having blood sugar in balance is vital to our overall health and wellness. Those diagnosed with diabetes can no longer produce their own insulin, which can lead to severe health complications. 

Glutathione: This peptide is important for immunity and detoxification. If our body is not able to clear out toxins, this can lead to serious diseases. 

Oxytocin: Also known as the “love hormone”, oxytocin is necessary for reproduction, childbirth and breastfeeding.
