What are peptides?
Peptides are short strings of amino acids, typically comprised of 2 to 50 amino acids. Both proteins and peptides are made up of amino acids, but peptides contain far fewer amino acids than proteins. Like proteins, peptides are naturally present in foods and in the body, however, peptides may be easier for the body to absorb than proteins because they are smaller and more broken down than proteins. They can more easily penetrate the skin and intestines, which helps them to enter the bloodstream more quickly. They are very specific, which makes them safe and well-tolerated. They work by signaling cells to regulate and rejuvenate functions of the human body.
Many health and cosmetic products contain different peptides for many uses, such as their potential anti-aging, anti-inflammatory or muscle building properties.
Some of the most popular peptides include collagen peptides for anti-aging and skin health, and creatine peptide supplements for building muscle and enhancing athletic performance. The first peptide discovered was insulin!
Recent research indicates that some types of peptides could have a beneficial role in slowing down the aging process, reducing inflammation and destroying microbes.
Peptides may provide many important influences:
• Support healthy cells
• Promote fat burning and lean body mass building
• Aid in gut health and intestinal absorption
• Work with testosterone and estrogen to help boost libido
• Improve workouts, stamina and recovery
• Aid in a healthy sleep cycle
• Boost the immune system
• Fight microbes
• Increase natural growth hormone (hGH) and IGF-1 production
• Lead to increased levels of energy, stamina and strength
• Aid to increase skin elasticity and decrease wrinkles
People everywhere are already asking about peptides. Our goal is to offer is carefully selected group of peptides to help support the functional medicine approach to maintaining and restoring health with lifestyle modifications, healthy nutrition, stress reduction, hormone optimization and supplements.
GLENDALE WHOLE HEALTH IS PLEASED TO OFFER THESE PEPTIDES FOR SEXUAL ENHANCEMENT:
Oxytocin is sometimes called the love hormone because it’s responsible for some of the positive emotions you feel during attraction and sexual desire.
Oxytocin is both a hormone and a neurotransmitter. It is the hormone responsible for contractions during labor, for breast milk letdown (when your body releases milk while breastfeeding), and for erection and orgasm. It’s also responsible for positive emotions like trust and happiness.
Oxytocin is responsible for sexual arousal and orgasm. Nipple stimulation can cause a surge of oxytocin, which leads to lubrication and arousal in women. In men, oxytocin causes erection, increases sperm count and moves sperm via ejaculation. Men have high levels of oxytocin during orgasm. Nasal oxytocin medicine raises the perception of arousal during masturbation.
Oxytocin administered as a troche (slow-dissolving oral tablet) shortly before sexual activity commences can enhance the sexual experience. PT-141 and oxytocin work very well together towards that end.
PT - 141 (Bremelanotide)
PT-141 works directly through the nervous system to increase arousal, desire and satisfaction with sex. Although most of the research has been targeted to women with female sexual dysfunction, it has been found to be an effective medication in treating sexual dysfunction in both men (erectile dysfunction (ED) 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. It is estimated that 43% of women (30 million in the United States) suffer from sexual dysfunction and 30 million men suffer from ED, with the incidence increasing 2-3 fold between the ages 40-70. Bremelanotide currently has no contraindications and is 80% effective in men who don’t respond to Viagra or Cialis. For women, it causes a 50% increase in sexually satisfying experiences.
Not recommended to use more than two doses weekly. Can be take orally or via subcutaneous injection. PT-141 and oxytocin work very well together to enhance the sexual experience.
This is a topical cream that when applied to the clitoris can have dramatic results. It has been reported that only ~25% of women achieve orgasm from sexual intercourse, and even with clitoral stimulation that number only increases to 43%, but Scream Cream can make all the difference. Women have reported substantially increased libido, intensity of orgasm and also vaginal lubrication.
The cream is made of multiple medications (l-citrulline, aminophylline, ergoloid mesylate, and pentoxifylline), but the primary mechanism of action is substantial vasodilation to the area of application which increases sensitivity. Another positive is that the cream achieves very little systemic absorption, which enables patients to use it without worry of drug interactions or side effects.
Scream Cream is applied topically.
