Weight loss is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions among adults as we are constantly striving to feel and look better. With everything happening these days, from increased stress, reduced gym availability, and easy access to unhealthy foods, people are looking to help kick-start their weight loss goals and flourish from the inside out. Many diet trends have come and gone over the years; however, most tend to be cosmetic quick-fixes while very few actually target our body chemistry for a more natural solution. This is where the cutting-edge, medically-studied peptide therapy can be the tool you have been looking for.
More and more people are turning to peptides for losing weight and living healthy active lifestyles. There is a lot of research out there about these highly effective compounds, and the health community is starting to get on board with these exciting and potentially game-changing results.
One might ask, what is a peptide? The simple but factual answer is peptides are a specific sequence of amino acids that stimulates the body to react. Depending on the specific sequence of amino acids, the stimulation of the body can be focused. This stimulation signals the body to make more of a hormone or increase cellular activity and is a natural response and not artificially replacing or adding pharmaceuticals to your body. That’s right! This is a natural stimulation, and when you complete the peptide program, your body returns to a normal state and does not rely on more medication to keep your results. Peptides reproduce what the body already knows to do through its signaling, neurotransmitters, hormones, and enzymes, making them a complementary protocol to a healthy lifestyle. Think of it this way; our cells are intelligent; we’re just giving them the ability to show their intelligence through peptide therapy!
The doctors at Focal Point are experts in determining what peptides are the right “tool” for each guest and do not use a one size fits all approach. Each guest has a consultation via phone or in person to discuss medical history, nutrition, lifestyle, and goals the guest is looking to achieve. We use body composition testing, not just the scale, to determine progress during the therapy and help to make changes to optimize the weight loss program.
Focal Point offers a variety of peptides including CJC 1295/Ipamorelin (Growth Hormone Stimulating), IGF-1 LR3 (Insulin Growth Factor) and the newest peptide available MOTS-C (Mitochondrial Stimulating) as well as many more. And all of our peptides are proudly sourced from United States pharmacies.
The combination of Ipamorelin and CJC 1295 has been developed because the two can act together on the pituitary and hypothalamus to increase the natural production of growth hormone in the body for improved energy, fitness, and overall health. It is done in this way to maximize the amount of growth hormone being released into your body for therapeutic benefits while acting on two separate families of receptors.
IGR1-LR3 is a breakthrough peptide that has shown great results without many of the side effects or risks of other more commonly prescribed fat loss medications. IGF1-LR3 inhibits the movement of glucose into the body’s cells which facilitates fat burning and the use of fat in the body for the production of energy. Its effects last most of the day and have made it a preferred variant by a majority of patients and physicians. When IGF1-LR3 is active in the body, it functions differently in different types of tissues. For instance, in muscle tissue, it makes the muscle more sensitive to insulin's effects, such as a reduction in fat storage.
MOTS-c is a peptide encoded as a sORF in the mtDNA that is metabolically and developmentally regulated, which has endocrine-like effects on muscle metabolism, insulin sensitivity, and weight regulation. For this reason, it establishes its role as a member of a new class of mitochondrial signals. Benefits of MOTS-c include decreased insulin resistance, better transport of sugars to muscle cells, fat loss, increased energy, greater resistance to metabolic stress, and improved health and lifespan.
