Your hormones play a critical role in a number of your body’s functions, including its maintenance of a healthy weight. As you age, though, your body produces less of the hormones it needs to lose body fat. The body similarly decreases hormone production in obese people. That’s why the weight loss specialists at Weight Loss & Vitality offer growth hormone peptides. This safe, effective treatment restores hormone levels and supports your weight loss goals while boosting your overall wellness.

Growth Hormone Peptides Q & A

Why are hormones important for weight loss and well-being? 

Hormones are your body’s regulatory substances. They’re chemical messengers your body uses to maintain:

  • Metabolism
  • Mood
  • Sexual function
  • Growth and healing

When you’re young, your body produces sufficient hormone levels to help you grow healthily, metabolize your food into energy, and more. The issue is that as you age, your body produces less and less of certain hormones. Specifically, it produces fewer growth hormones. Reduced levels of these hormones leave you experiencing:

  • Increased body fat that’s hard to lose 
  • Fatigue
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Decreased bone density
  • Decreased libido
  • Poor sleep quality 
  • Decreased mental acuity
  • Mood changes, including anxiety and depression

Obesity causes a similar drop in growth hormone production, exposing you to all of these symptoms. 

Lowered growth hormones can wreak havoc on your body, leaving you looking and feeling less than your best. And that’s why Weight Loss & Vitality offers growth hormone peptides.

What are growth hormone peptides?

First, it’s important to clarify that growth hormone peptides are not the growth hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), which you might have heard about as a risky, unreliable way to lose weight. 

Instead, growth hormone peptides are growth-hormones releasing hormones (GHRH). They safely stimulate your body’s production of growth hormones, making these peptides a highly effective way to combat the effects of aging and obesity. In short, they help you lose weight, feel more energized, and enjoy greater overall health. 

How do I get growth hormone peptides?

Weight Loss & Vitality offers this treatment to their patients to support their weight loss goals and quality of life. They use the growth hormone peptides sermorelin and ipamorelin. When injected into your body, they promote your body’s creation and release of growth hormones from your pituitary gland. 

When used over eight weeks, you notice new benefits from your growth hormone peptides week over week. For example, many people experience improved sleep quality, mental clarity, workout recovery, and skin elasticity in the first month. By the second month, you notice your body composition starting to change, helping you release stubborn fat and move closer to your ideal weight.
