Peptides offered at Valley Vital Medicine:
Sermorelin is a peptide whose structure is similar to growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH). This is beneficial in that it can be used to improve growth hormone levels in adults, along with an increase in insulin growth factor 1 (IGF-1). Using this, we can stimulate the pituitary to secrete growth hormone without the negatives of elevated prolactin.
When sermorelin is used, individuals can expect to have improved fat burn, improved lean muscle mass, better hormone balance, improved energy and a boost to the immune system. When combined with glycine, we can also see an improvement in sleep, energy, mental clarity, and skin elasticity.
Thymosin A1 is a major immune support substance that is produced by the thymus. The thymus is the master regulator of the immune system. Thymosin A1 is thought to improve T-cell function by activating them. This particular peptide has been shown to be antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal. In addition, studies have shown an increase in vaccine effectiveness, tumor cell suppression, stop infection or cancer growth, immune system improvement, and improved energy in those with chronic fatigue.
There are no adverse drug interactions that have been noted with Thymosin A1. There have not been any other side-effects reported, other than some burning or irritation at the site of injection.
Thymosin Beta-4 is a substance that is secreted from the thymus and has been shown to be responsible for regulation of the immune system and tissue repair. This peptide has shown a role in protection, regeneration, and remodeling of injured or damaged tissue. Thymosin Beta-4 is found in both types of muscle in the body and has increased release in response to trauma. Benefits seen with use include: decreased muscle spasm, improved muscle tone and tissue repair, decreased inflammation, improved endurance and strength, and prevents adhesions and fibrous bands in muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
There are no adverse drug interactions that have been noted with Thymosin Beta-4. There have not been any other side-effects reported, other than some burning or irritation at the site of injection.
