AOD-9604 (Advanced Obesity Drug)
Protocol: 5 days in a row injecting, 2 days off for pituitary rest.
AOD-9604 is a modified form of amino acids 176-191 of the Growth Hormone (GH) polypeptide. It works by mimicking the way natural GH regulates fat metabolism but without the adverse effects on blood sugar or growth that is seen with unmodified GH. AOD-9604 stimulates lipolysis (the breakdown in fat) and inhibits lipogenesis (the transformation of non-fat food material into body fat) both in laboratory testing in animals and humans. Currently, trials are underway to demonstrate the application of AOD-9604 in osteoarthritis, hypercholesterolemia, bone and cartilage repair.
BPC-157 (Body Protection Compound)
Protocol: Daily injecting.
BPC- 157, composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protection compound this 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 damages areas. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears and damage may benefit from treatment of this peptide. It can also help aid burns to heal at a faster rate and increase blood flow to damaged tissues.
PT-141: Sexual Enhancement for Men and Women
Protocol: Inject 60 minutes prior to sexual activity.
PT-141 was developed from the peptide hormone Melanotan II. In initial testing, Melanotan II did induce tanning but additionally caused sexual arousal and spontaneous erections as unexpected side effects in nine out 10 original volunteer test subjects. Further testing indicates that PT-141 was also effective in treating sexual dysfunction in both men (erectile dysfunction or impotence) and women (sexual arousal disorder). Unlike Viagra and other related medications, it does not act upon the vascular system but directly increases sexual desire via the nervous system.
CJC-1295/Ipamorelin: The Universal Anti-Aging Peptide
Protocol: .15ml’s, Sub-Q, 5 days in a row injecting, 2 days off for pituitary rest
CJC-1295/Ipamorelin is a synthetically produced peptide that can increase your plasma growth hormone (GH) levels. Initially, CJC-1295 was developed to treat diseases and medical conditions for patients who had muscle disorders, and burn victims. The primary purpose of CJC-1295 is to boost protein synthesis levels and help fuel the growth of muscle tissues in the body. This singular peptide 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. Your hair, skin and nails will look better. You will recover from workouts faster and faster weight loss is achieved while lean muscle is being built. With GH increased you will burn more calories and look and feel younger.
IGF1-LR3: (Insulin-Like Growth Factor Long-term Release) New Muscle Building
Protocol: 5 days in a row injecting, 2 days off for pituitary rest.
IGF1-LR3 is the biggest bang for your buck! The main work of this peptide is to promote nitrogen and protein synthesis to create new muscle. By combining 13 amino acids, IGF1-LR3 decreases inflammation, improves immunity, improves/heals the gut lining, boosts collagen production, balances blood insulin levels (blood sugar) and supports weight loss. The peptide also has the longest half-life of 30 hours vs 12-15 hours with IGF1 alone.
Melatontan II – “The Barbie Peptide” (Thin, Tan and Horny)
Protocol: Inject daily until desired effect has been achieved, then 2-3 times a week to maintain results.
Melanotan II is a peptide that enhances the body’s own melanocytes to create ‘tanned skin” without the sun. Melanocortins are multi-functional peptides that regulate a diversity of physiological functions. There are five melanocortin receptors MC1R- MC5R. These receptors have been identified to show specific tissue expression patterns and binding affinities for each of the melanocortin hormones. The central melanocortin system MC3R & MC4O receptors play a fundamental role in the control of appetite and body weight. Libido Enhancement is a true “side effect”, rather than a function (bonus!).
MIC+B12 – Weekly Weight Management
Protocol: inject 1ml, IM, weekly.
Sometimes diet and exercise alone wont cut it, more often that not it is a simple fact that you lack vital nutrients and vitamins in the body. In turn, you can’t shed those excess pounds you’ve been trying to get rid of for so long. To burn fat and muscle, you need to replenish those essential vitamins and minerals. Methionine is an essential amino acid that works as a deactivating agent to defend against harmful compounds in our system. Inositol is a lipotropic in the Vitamin B family. It works to break down fat and can be used to treat PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) effectively along with other female “dysfunctions”. Choline is an essential nutrient that is vital to liver health and function. It also helps burn exported fat, detoxes the liver and helps promote healthier weight loss results. Vitamin B12 normalizes blood flow, brain function. Heart and nervous system functions and helps metabolize fat, aiding weight loss. These essential vitamins will boost metabolism, improve sleep, support healthy cells repair and growth and improves immunity.
Thymosin Alpha 1 – Repairing the Immune System
Protocol: .75 units, Sub-Q, twice a week.
Thymosin Alpha -1 is a protein which consists of 28 amino acids. TA1 is believed to be a significant component of Thymosin Fraction 5 responsible for the activity of that preparation in repairing immune function. It has been found to improve cell mediated immunity in humans. TA1 plays a vital role in the control of immunity, tolerance, and inflammation. It manages immune response via an initial action on the cells of the innate immune system and this acts as an endogenous regulator of both inflammatory and adaptive immune responses. TA1’s immunomodulatory activities are center primarily on the augmentation of T- cell function. Thymosin Alpha 1 has been useful in treating symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic Fatigue, Lyme’s Disease, HIV and some cancers.
Selank – Mood Stabilization Assistance
Protocol: one spray per nostril daily
Selank has pronounced anxiolytic activity. It acts as a stable neuropsychotropic, antidepressant, and anti-stress drug that relieves aggression and fear reaction in animal studies. Selank has a nootropic action, which positively influences the formation of memory and learning processes. Selank has similar properties to the physiological effects of benzodiazepines. This suggests that there is a similar basis of their mechanism of action that is the allosteric modulation of GABA (neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid) receptors. They enhance the GABA effect by allosteric modulation, which increases the frequency of opening of channels for chlorine ions. It does not have the unwanted side effects of benzodiazepines such as withdrawal, dependence, and amnesia, Numerous clinical studies have shown that Selank has strong anti-anxiety and neuroprotective effects in the treatment of generalized anxiety disorders.
Semax – Cognitive Support
Protocol: one spray per nostril daily
Semax is a neuroprotective peptide predominantly a nootropic, which has neurogenic/neurorestorative properties. It rapidly elevates the levels and expression of the brain-derived neurotrophic factor and the signaling receptor TrkB in the hippocampus. Molecular tools have allowed the identification of melanocortin receptors signaling in memory, reward, mood, nociception, and erectile function among others. A recent study investigated the effects of intranasally administered a selective MC4 receptor co-morbid with post-traumatic stress disorders. The melanocortin system has a well-established role in the regulation of energy homeostasis but there is growing evidence of its involvement in memory, nociception, mood disorders and addiction. Semax is currently being prescribed for numerous conditions like anxiety, memory improvement, nerve regeneration, strokes, ADHD, Parkinson’s, ALS, and Alzheimer’s.
Glutathione – Antioxidant Therapy for Skin Care
Protocol: 200mg, 2-3 times a week, IM injection
Glutathione is an antioxidant produced in cells. It’s compromised mostly of three amino acids: glutamine, glycine, and cysteine. Glutathione injections works by clearing the body of toxins and free radicals. When we are exposed to toxins, glutathione is used up faster than it can be produced. Glutathione levels in the body can be reduced by many factors, including poor nutrition, environmental toxins, and stress, levels also decline with age. Glutathione assists with: “brightening” skin and improves skin tone, may improve psoriasis symptoms, reduces cell damage in alcoholic and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, improves insulin resistance in older individuals, reduces symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, may help fight against autoimmune disease, may reduce symptoms of uncontrolled diabetes, my reduce respiratory disease symptoms.
GHK-Cu Copper Peptide – Improves Thinning Skin and Stimulates Wound Healing
Protocol: apply one pump of medication to affected area, morning and night.
GHK-Cu is a naturally occurring copper complex that was first identified in human plasma. Copper peptides are small, naturally occurring protein fragments that have a high affinity for copper ions, which are critical to normal body function. The human peptide GHK (glycyl-l-histidyl-l-lysine) has multiple biological actions, all of which, according to our current knowledge, appear to be health positive. It stimulates blood vessel and nerve outgrowth, increases collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycan synthesis, as well as supports the function of dermal fibroblasts. GHK’s ability to improve tissue repair has been demonstrated for skin, lung connective tissue, boney tissue, liver, and stomach lining. GHK-Cu established itself as a powerful protective and regenerative ingredient, which is currently widely used in skin and hair products. First, it seems to act as a potent protector of tissue and anti-inflammatory agent that controls the oxidative damage that occurs post-tissue injury. It then plays a significant role in signaling tissue remodeling which removes damaged/scarred tissue and generates new, healthy tissue. However, these positive effects decline with age because the concentration of GHK-Cu in the body decreases with age. Thus, there is an increase in inflammation, cancerous activity, and tissue destruction. Symptoms of aging that are improved with GHK-Cu: Tighten loose skin and reverse thinning of aged skin, improve skin firmness, elasticity, and clarity, reduce fine lines, depth of wrinkles, and improve the structure of aged skin, stimulates wound healing and Increase hair growth and thickness, enlarge hair follicle size.
