They offer peptide therapy on-site that involves a simple injection. Call LeHeal Biogenix or book an appointment online today to learn how you can benefit from peptide therapy.

What are peptides?

Peptides contain amino acids, a vital protein building block. Your body needs protein to grow and repair tissues and peptides for healthy organ function.

Every peptide coordinates with other peptides. For example, the peptide ghrelin (GHRL) makes you feel hungry. When you eat, another peptide, gastrin, stimulates gastric acid production in your stomach.

The peptide cholecystokinin (CCK) regulates gallbladder and pancreas function and controls the speed at which your stomach empties. Somatostatin (SST) peptides ensure that all these other peptides work together for a smoothly functioning digestive system.

Where do I get peptides?

Peptides come from your diet, particularly high-protein foods. The richest sources of peptides include: 

  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Grains
  • Soy

A healthy, balanced diet consisting of varied foods should provide you with all the peptides you need. But some people’s digestive systems don’t work as well as they should, so they miss out on essential peptides.

How can I boost my peptide levels?

LeHeal Biogenix offers peptide therapy to improve your health. Peptide therapy involves having an injection containing the peptides you need for better general health. Peptide therapy is safe, with almost no risk of adverse reactions. Each treatment takes about five minutes.

Peptide preparations can help:

  • With weight loss
  • Improve sexual function
  • Increase gut health
  • Strengthen immunity
  • Slow the effects of aging

One beneficial peptide therapy contains peptides that you’d usually have in your gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These peptides stimulate tissue growth and repair, reducing pain and improving physical function.

What medical uses do peptides have?

Peptides are often used in medicines for specific diseases; however, they can also be used to treat injuries or for their anti-aging benefits. LeHealh Biogenix offers the following peptides:

TB-500

TB-500 is a synthetic formulation of thymosin beta-4, a naturally occurring protein present in almost all human and mammalian cells. Studies show that therapeutic treatment with TB-500 can enhance healing and cell regeneration. The benefits of TB-500 include:

  • Improved cell regeneration
  • Improved wound healing
  • Accelerated tissue repair 
  • Less inflammation

Your provider may also recommend peptide therapy with TB-500 to treat conditions like Lyme disease, an autoimmune disease, or a traumatic brain injury. 

BPC-157

BPC-157, or Body Protection Compound 157, is a peptide chain made up of 15 amino acids. This form of peptide therapy promotes healing and cell regeneration. Consequently, peptide therapy with BPC-157 can have a range of benefits, including:

  • Improved cell regeneration
  • Improved wound healing
  • Improved gastrointestinal health
  • Accelerated tissue repair
  • Enhanced mental wellness
  • Lower blood pressure

Many peptides have antioxidant and antimicrobial effects. That means they protect your body from harmful compounds and bacteria.

Before giving you a peptide injection, your LeHeal Biogenix doctor examines you thoroughly and reviews your medical history. Depending on your reason for needing peptides, they might recommend other treatments, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections or stem cell therapy, to complement the injections.

Your LeHeal Biognix provider can help you determine which form of peptide therapy is right for you.
