Growth hormone therapy vs. HRT: What’s the difference?
Human growth hormone (HGH) supports childhood growth and helps maintain tissues and organs throughout life. HGH is produced by the pituitary gland—a pea-sized gland at the base of the brain. Around middle age, however, the pituitary gland begins to decrease the amount of growth hormone it produces.
Human growth hormone therapy can increase muscle mass and reduce the amount of body fat in healthy, older adults. But, this therapy has some side effects for men, including carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), increased resistance to insulin, swelling in the arms and legs (edema), muscle and joint pain, and enlargement of breast tissue.
Instead of traditional growth hormone therapy, which, in addition to the abovementioned side effects, can be costly, we offer HGH peptide therapy. HGH peptides are NOT HGH, nor are they hormones. HGH peptides are proteins that stimulate the pituitary gland to produce higher levels of HGH naturally. Many men get the same benefits as HGH replacement, but without the risks of replacement.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) on the other hand, is an effective form of treatment for low testosterone (Low T) in men, or other hormonal imbalances in women. HRT can help restore hormone levels to help you feel more energetic, have a healthy sex drive, better manage your weight and more.
What are HGH Peptides
HGH Peptides or Human Growth Hormone Peptides are specific peptides that interact with the hypothalamus and pituitary glands in the brain to naturally encourage the body to produce and release your naturally occurring growth hormone. They are also known as called secretagogues because they help trigger the secretion of more GH.
What is HGH Peptide Therapy?
Using human growth hormone secretagogues is an innovative new type of therapy that increases your own production of human growth hormone. HGH Peptide Therapy is used for treating a variety of conditions that can impact a man’s vitality, including aging, fat-loss, and impotence.
Why is Growth Hormone Important?
Human growth hormone is a single-chain polypeptide that is secreted by the pituitary gland. This peptide naturally regulates a variety of functions in the human body. Much like Testosterone, the body’s natural production of GH begins to decrease with age. After peaking in the early 20s, the average person begins to see a steady decline in their body’s ability to stimulate tissue repair and regenerate the cells required to maintain peak levels of health and vitality. This natural decline is responsible for symptoms of aging, such as loss of muscle mass and bone density, an increase in body fat, loss of skin elasticity, thinning hair, bad sleep, and reduced sexual desire and performance.
How Do HGH Peptides Work?
As mentioned above, peptides are simply a short chain of amino acids sequenced within your body. GH Peptide Therapy uses those sequences to bind to other cells and essentially tell them what to do. By replacing or mimicking the functions of naturally occurring peptides, Peptide therapy can help to reboot your body chemistry and encourage recovery, muscle growth, and slow down the natural symptoms of aging.
Are HGH Peptides Like Steroids?
The simple answer is no. The benefits of HGH Peptide may be similar to those of steroids – improved athletic performance, increased energy, fat burning, and muscle development – but the way they achieve those results is significantly different.
Steroids are synthetic hormones, while Peptides are naturally occurring substances that encourage your body to produce more of your own hormones. This dramatically reduces the risk of side effects and makes it easier to regulate over the long term. Also, because Growth Hormones Peptides do not replace your body’s own growth hormone production, there is little risk of developing a dependency
How long does it take to see results from HGH Peptide Therapy?
HGH Peptides Therapy can work quickly. For some, like PT-141 Bremelanotide, you may see results in minutes. But for most HGH Peptide Therapies, patients can begin to see results as quickly as a few weeks.
With continued use, most people will begin to see maximum results around 3-6 months. Remember, each therapy is different, and every person is unique, so, as they say on TV, results may vary.

- Decreased joint and muscle pain
What are the Different Types of HGH Peptide Therapy?
There’sThere’s are several variations of GH Peptide therapy – each with its own benefits. CJC1295 and Ipamorelin are GH Peptides that have shown to be good at treating the symptoms of aging (Listed above). Ipamorelin has shown great results for weight loss and fat loss. PT-141 Bremelanotide has been shown to help with impotence and low libido.
CJC1295 Peptide Therapy
Common Uses: Anti-aging
CJC1295 Peptide Therapy is one of the more recent developments in anti-aging medicine. It is quickly becoming one of the more popular treatments because it can help men improve their energy, improve their metabolism, improve their immune system, and even boost their libido.
Tesamorelin Peptide Therapy
Common Uses: Fat Reduction and Muscle Development
Tesamorelin Peptide treatment is becoming popular in the fitness community for its ability to promote weight loss – especially in the abdominal region. Tesamorelin works by stimulating the pituitary gland to increase the natural production of HGH (Human Growth Hormone). Tesamorelin is used specifically to help to trim stubborn belly fat by reducing the visceral fat found in the abdomen. Studies show patients using Tesamorelin have experienced between 15 – 17% weight loss from their abdomen.
Like other HGH Peptides, Tesamorelin can also help in the production of lean muscle, making it a powerful 1-2 punch to get the most out of physical training and diet.
Ipamorelin Peptide Therapy
Common Uses: Anti-Aging
Ipamorelin HGH Peptide Therapy is used in anti-aging treatments to combat the body’s natural decline in growth hormone levels. It can help improve body composition, bone density, improve sleeping and energy levels, and strengthen your immune system.
Common Uses: Erectile Dysfunction (for Men), Low Libido (for women)
PT-141 (also known as Bremelanotide) is a new peptide hormone treatment that has been shown to produce sexual arousal and influence sexual behavior. Unlike Viagra, which works to improve blood flow, PT-141 works in the central nervous system to help promote erection. The results are often seen in just minutes, and many patients have reported “intense” and “frequent” erections lasting between 2-6 hours.
