Peptide therapy is a treatment that is becoming more and more popular. But what is peptide therapy? And how can it help you? VitaLab is here to answer all of your questions! Peptides are small proteins that play an important role in the body. They are used in a variety of ways, including to promote recovery and healing, and for immune optimization, anti-aging, weight loss, and more. This can be done by taking peptides orally or by injecting them into the body. Peptide therapy is a safe and effective treatment that can help you live a healthier life. If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional medicine, peptide therapy may be right for you.


There are an array of different peptides that are used by providers today. In our California office, some of the most popular types used include:

CJC-1295: This is a GHRH (growth hormone-releasing hormone) analogue that is very effective at increasing growth hormone secretion and IGF-1. CJC 1295 can improve cognitive function and memory, increase cellular repair and regeneration, increase muscle growth and bone density, and more.

Ipamorelin: Composed of 5 amino acids, Ipamorelin is a growth hormone secretagogue that stimulates the pituitary gland to release more growth hormone. It helps your body burn fat and recover from workouts sooner, as well as includes anti-aging properties, helps improve your sleep cycle, and can enhance your immune system.

BPC-157: BPC-157 is a molecule that is isolated in gastric juice to help with gut health. It increases vascular flow to the tendons and ligaments to increase healing. Overall, BPC-157 is a great option to help alleviate joint pain, old injuries, and for those looking to improve joint mobility.

Thymosin Alpha-1: Thymosin Alpha 1 is responsible for restoring immune function and helps regulate the immune response to seek out and destroy bacterial, fungal, and viral infections.

Thymosin Beta-4: This peptide’s primary function is to promote healing in tendons, ligaments, muscles, skin, heart, and eyes. It is naturally produced in larger concentrations where tissue has been damaged.

Semaglutide: Semaglutide is an FDA-approved prescription peptide for weight management. It is a weekly injectable that can be done from home that helps regulate blood sugar levels, regulate appetite, slows down the emptying of the stomach, and controls your body’s glucose production.

AOD-9604: AOD is a synthetic analog of the human growth hormone developed to combat obesity and help people trying to lose weight.

PT-141: PT-141 is a new innovative peptide hormone treatment that works for both men and women to improve sexual function. PT-141 is an effective and efficient treatment for both erectile dysfunction and promotes increased libido in men, and improves female sexual arousal disorder in women.


Peptide therapy stimulates cellular regenerative processes to target a range of conditions. Common treatment goals include immune optimization, recovery and healing, performance enhancement, anti-aging, and weight loss. Naturally occurring peptides may serve as hormones, growth factors, neurotransmitters, ion channel ligands, and anti-infectives. While there are various delivery methods, we prefer subcutaneous injectables most of the time, and sublingual troches or topicals in select situations (such as GHK-Cu cream for wrinkles).
