Individuals who consider themselves at peak health and are wanting to optimize performance or decrease the physical response to aging should consider some of the following products. Others, who suffer from auto-immune and inflammatory conditions should consult with their provider, to see which treatment options are recommended. Not all products are listed, these are some of the most frequently recommended and used by our patients.
What are peptides?
Peptides are smaller versions of proteins. Many health and cosmetic products contain different peptides for many uses, such as their potential anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, or muscle building properties.
Are peptides safe?
Many peptides have FDA approval and are commonly used to treat a variety of conditions. For example, insulin is a very well-known petide that helps control glucose levels. Depending on your medical history, certain peptides may not be appropriate for use. Just like any other medicine or supplement, please consult an experienced medical provider to evaluate and recommend specific treatments.
Are peptides right for me?
There is no “best peptide” because everyone is not at the same fitness and health level, so desired outcomes may vary. Please review some of the most commonly used peptides as a guide for expected benefits from treatment.
BPC - 157
BPC 157, composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) that is discovered in and isolated from the human gastric juice. Experimentally it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments. Also, BPC 157 seems to protect organs and to prevent ulcers of the stomach. This peptide is also shown to decrease pain in damaged areas. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears and damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide. It can also help aid skin burns to heal at a faster rate and increase blood flow to damaged tissues.
Increase collagen synthesis
Quicker recovery times post-injury
Wound and bone healing
Decrease in inflammation
Reverse opioid tolerance

CJC 1295 is a synthetically produced peptide that can increase your plasma growth hormone levels. Initially, CJC 1295 was developed to treat diseases and medical conditions for patients who had muscle disorders, diseases, and burn victims. CJC 1295 has drawn many individuals like athletes from around the globe for its incredible benefits and minimal side effects to enhance their performance on the field and in the gym. The primary purpose of CJC-1295 is to boost protein synthesis levels and help fuel the growth of muscle tissues in the body. Many benefits will be derived by users who are incorporating CJC-1295 to their regimen; among these are:
Decrease body fat
Improve sleep quality
Increase cognitive function
Quicker recovery times post-injury
Increased muscle mass
Increase in strength
It is used alongside Ipamorelin because of the synergistic effects and increased GH release levels. An increase in growth hormone levels. These are naturally release by the pituitary glands, and as your body stops producing the hormone as you age, a supplement, such as Ipamorelin, can naturally help increase those dissipated levels. If using it with CJC 1295, you can experience a correlation in increased muscle mass levels. With more extended-release periods, more significant results are achievable. So, if you want to gain more muscle mass, or if you just want to increase levels of lean muscle mass, you are going to realize these possibilities when you incorporate the use of Ipamorelin into your daily regimen. Less downtime. You will recover faster, your body will recuperate more quickly, and you are back on your feet faster. So, you won’t experience as much downtime after a tough workout, letting you get back to your regimen faster. Faster weight loss is achieved. Increase in lean muscle mass, increase in metabolic rate and increase growth hormones, all work together to help you burn more calories, and conversely lose more weight in less time. Your skin, nails, and hair will look better. It can work to help fight the signs of aging, and you are going to look and feel younger. A younger, more jovial appearance is almost instantly realized among users who incorporate Ipamorelin to their workout and diet regimen.
TB-500 is a synthetic fraction of the protein thymosin beta-4. The main purpose of this peptide is to promote healing. The healing effects of TB-500 have been observed in tendons, ligaments, muscles, skin, heart, and eyes. T• Up-regulates Actin and forms a ternary complex with actin and profilin.
Increased cells in healing
Improves cell migration to the cite of the injury
Soft tissue repair - tendon & ligament
Reduces scar tissue
Repair and regenerative properties
Increased muscle growth, tone, and stamina
Glutathione is a natural and very powerful antioxidant. It is produced by the liver and can be found naturally in fruits and vegetables. Glutathione injections may assist in preventing aging, and memory loss and is also used for maintaining the body’s immune system. It is often recommended for patients with autoimmune conditions, viral illness, high stress lifestyles, or people exposed to toxins: mold, tobacco, alcohol, etc.
A combination of three amino acids: choline, methionine and inositol along with Vitamin B-12 aimed at fat burning. These three amino acids work together to reduce cholesterol and fats in the liver and body. This combination helps to increase metabolism and may assist in weight loss.
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is one of the most important and interesting molecules in the body. It is required for over 500 enzymatic reactions and plays key roles in the regulation of almost all major biological processes (Ansari and Raghava, 2010). Above all, it may allow us to lead healthier and longer lives.
By modulating NAD+ sensing enzymes, it controls hundreds of critical processes from energy metabolism to cell survival, rising and falling depending on food intake, exercise, and the time of day.
NAD+ levels steadily fall as we age, leading to a decline in the function of cells and organs. By raising NAD+, NAD+ boosters can have profound effects on the health and survival of mammals. Increases in NAD+ promote cognitive and sensory function, gluconeogenesis in the liver, lipogenesis in adipose tissue, insulin secretion in the pancreas, and insulin sensitivity in muscle. NAD+ also promotes endothelial cell proliferation and protects against cardio- and cerebrovascular disease. NAD regulates immune function and inflammation and, protects against acute injury in the kidney.
Supplements are any product that adds nutritional value to your diet or augments health. Vitamins are a type of supplement. Other examples of supplements include minerals, herbs, or nutrients like fiber.
Patients often ask for recommendations on which brand of supplements to use since they are not regulated by the FDA. Whole Scripts sets strict criteria such as independent third party testing for potency and purity of their products before allowing them to sold to consumers. These are considered medical grade supplements and the following information can be used to purchase supplements via whole scripts.
