ABOUT PEPTIDE THERAPY
What are peptides?
Peptides are short strings of amino acids, typically comprising 2–50 amino acids. Amino acids are also the building blocks of proteins, but proteins contain more.
Peptides can be easier for the body to absorb than proteins because they are smaller and more broken down than proteins. So you can think of smaller protein molecules. In our body, our cells communicate via the release of these peptides outside the cell.
Why use peptides?
Peptides have been produced in laboratories for decades now. In addition, recently, the standards of production of American companies have caused a movement by progressive alternative providers who are seeking to treat their patients without the use of harmful drugs. Peptides are considered to be very safe and a key in regulating bodily systems.
If you are struggling with conditions related to: aging, like low muscle mass, decreased libido, increased weight, aging skin issues, slower wound healing, and muscle recovery, then peptide therapy may help you.

Here are just a few examples of peptides and their indications that we use here at Physical Dimensions:
Sermorelin Acetate—This peptide is a growth hormone-releasing agonist. It works by stimulating the pituitary gland to release growth hormone. Benefits include increased muscle mass after exercise, faster recovery, increased energy, endurance, and strength. It can also provide joint and muscle pain relief.
Gonadorelin-10—Gonadorelins are a family of peptide hormones that have been shown to play a critical role in the regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis, thus influencing fertility and reproduction. Benefits may include increasing testosterone, increasing follicle stimulating hormone, increasing aldosterone production and increasing low libido in both males and females.
Methylene Blue—This peptide has many anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, it has been shown to help with skin appearance and immune function. This peptide also helps with improved mood and memory. It shows promise in treating neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Pentosan Polysulfate—This peptide is used for the relief of Osteoarthritis. It's shown to prevent cartilage breakdown of enzymes as well as improve blood flow to the subchondral bone under the worn cartilage.
Zinc Thymulin—This is a topical hair foam that plays a role in improved hair growth and hair loss prevention.
