What Can Peptide Therapy Help With?

Could feeling and looking more vibrant be as simple as a supplement? While there’s no quick fix or miracle cure for complaints like low energy and reduced muscle mass, peptide therapy holds a lot of promise. 

When you pair these therapeutic supplements with appropriate lifestyle measures, you may even start feeling like a whole new you, or more like the self you used to be.

At PSI Medical Group in Wixom, Michigan, plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Robert Grafton is pleased to offer peptide therapy for good candidates.

Read on to learn more about peptide therapy, including how it works and potential benefits.

The basics of peptides

Peptides are  strings of 2-50 amino acids, or building blocks of proteins. Because they’re smaller and more broken down than proteins, your body and bloodstream may absorb them more easily. 

Peptides occur naturally in a range of foods, such as meat, eggs, dairy products, soybeans, flaxseeds, and wheat. Because certain peptides, known as bioactive peptides, may benefit human health, peptides are also available in supplement form.

Benefits of peptide therapy

While more research is needed, peptide therapy may benefit your skin and body in a variety of ways. 

Wellness benefits peptide supplements may bring include:

We also recommend peptide therapy as an anti-aging treatment. Collagen peptides, in particular, may help slow the aging of your skin, leading to a smoother, more supple complexion. One study also showed that collagen peptides improve skin’s moisture.

What to expect during peptide therapy

Your peptide therapy process begins with a blood test, which provides Dr. Grafton with important information for customizing your treatment plan. From there, you begin incorporating the recommended supplements into your daily routine.

Most of our patients tolerate peptide therapy well, but let us know if you notice symptoms such as headaches, bloating, or dizziness. In some people, topical peptide cream — another means of the therapy — causes itching or a rash, in which case oral supplements may be your best bet.

Soon after beginning peptide therapy, you should notice the benefits starting to gradually unfold. For bolstered results, we may recommend additional treatments as well, such as IV nutrition therapy or bioidentical hormone therapy

Regardless, aim to lead an overall healthy lifestyle, prioritizing good sleep, eating, and exercise habits to make the most of your plan.
