Anti-Aging Therapy Q&A

What is anti-aging therapy?

Anti-aging therapy is a form of treatment, boasting numerous health benefits. Each health benefit contributes to your ability to feel your best at any age, despite the processes at play in aging. 

Over the years, your body slows its production of human growth hormone (HGH). HGH plays a major role in your growth when you’re a child and adolescent, and throughout your life, it continues to help your organs function. When your HGH decreases, you start to experience the effects of aging on your body like the losses of muscle and bone mass. 

Anti-aging therapy prevents this natural decline so you can maintain your energy and maintain a better sense of well-being, alongside other health benefits. 

What are peptides?

Peptides are strands of amino acids that serve several important purposes in your body. They’re like proteins but include fewer amino acids. Much like neurotransmitters and hormones, they improve signaling between your cells. 

Peptides work well for anti-aging therapy because they help boost the production of HGH. Because they facilitate this production, anti-aging peptide therapy is more effective than traditional human growth hormone therapy. 

RxBODYFx offers several peptide therapies to slow down many of the most common signs of aging. You receive the injections on a daily basis in most cases, though some peptides for anti-aging therapy are available in oral forms. 

Which peptides are used in anti-aging therapy?

There are many peptides that function similarly to improve HGH production. The team at RxBODYFx might recommend anti-aging therapy with:

  • Sermorelin
  • Ipamorelin
  • CJC-1295
  • GHRP2
  • GHRP6

Peptides like these are derived from natural sources like soy, oats, wheat, and milk. Since there is more than one option available, the team helps you review the benefits and drawbacks of each of them individually or as a combination.

What are the benefits of anti-aging therapy?

By curbing the loss of HGH within your body, anti-aging therapy with peptides offers a plethora of health and wellness benefits. The team at RxBODYFx describes them in detail during your initial free consultation, though they generally include:

  • Improved libido
  • More energy
  • Better muscle building and definition
  • Better fat metabolism
  • Improved cognitive function
  • Boost in immunity
  • Faster healing
  • Faster athletic recovery

Peptides can also reduce inflammation, which decreases various types of pain. You’ll feel more youthful and experience more success in your weight loss efforts than you did before peptide therapy.
