Peptides are short chains of amino acids that carry out an array of important biological functions. Peptides are used to control or to trigger actions in our cells. Certain peptides act as hormones, switching on or off certain biological processes, while others can have an antiviral or therapeutic immune system response. Peptides can be used to switch on lost cell function or to insert information into the body to trigger a therapeutic reaction. Peptides help maintain hormonal balance and prevent age-related chronic diseases. Call Align Healing Center today to book your appointment.
Peptide therapy has wide-ranging effects and can be used for a variety of conditions and symptoms, promoting wellness and longevity.A few months of peptide therapy, repeated at regular intervals, is necessary to feel the therapy’s full benefits.
Thymosin is a hormone secreted from the thymus. The predominant form of thymosin, thymosin beta 4, is an actin, a cell building protein. This cell-building protein is an essential component of cell structure and movement which leads to its role in tissue repair. Tβ 4 has been found to play an important role in protection, regeneration, and remodeling of injured or damaged tissues. It can be taken on its own or in conjunction with other therapies, making it a versatile and valuable peptide. Thymosin beta-4 is self administered daily as a subcutaneous injection.
Thymosin alpha-1 is responsible for restoring the immune system function as it activates various immune T cells, the first line of defense in the body. Clinical benefits are expected in disorders where the immune response is impaired or ineffective, especially for patients with chronic infections or auto-immune conditions. Thymosin alpha-1 can be self administered daily as a subcutaneous injection or 1x per week as an IV infusion.
PTD-DBM for Hair Restoration:
PTD-DBM which is short for Protein transduction domain (PTD)-Dvl-binding motif (DBM).
PTD-DBM is a hair follicle regeneration treatment. More specifically, it is a peptide-based topical scalp treatment which inhibits the follicle shrinking action of the body’s hormones and enzymes effectively rescuing the follicle at a stem cell level. Treatment with PTD-DBM both prevents hair loss and promotes the growth of new hair follicles. See our Hair Restoration page for more information on this treatment.
