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 help maintain hormonal balance and prevent age-related chronic diseases. Call Align Healing Center to book your appointment today.
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.

- Helps maintain flexibility
- Reduced inflammation of tissue in joints
- Encourages the growth of new blood cells in tissue
- Increased endurance and strength
- Prevents the formation of adhesions and fibrous bands in muscles, tendons, and ligaments
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 the protection, regeneration, and remodeling of injured or damaged tissues. Thymogen is the active fragment of Thymosin and has shown exceptional bioavailability in capsule delivery. It can be taken on its own or in conjunction with other therapies, making it a versatile and valuable peptide. Thymogen beta-4 is taken daily in a capsule or in an easy-to-deliver oral spray.
- Supports the immune system in chronic bacterial or viral infections
- Potential additive therapy for Lyme disease and auto-immunity
- Repair after acute injury or surgery
- Increased vaccine effectiveness
- Suppression of tumor growth
- Restoration of the immune system
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. Thymogen is the active fragment of Thymosin and has shown exceptional bioavailability in capsule delivery. Clinical benefits are expected in disorders where the immune response is impaired or ineffective, especially for patients with chronic infections or auto-immune conditions. Thymogen alpha-1 can be taken daily in capsule form.
BPC-157 is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) found in gastric juice. BPC can be used to accelerate the healing of a variety of wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and the healing of ligaments. BPC also acts systemically to combat leaky gut, IBS, Crohn's disease, and gastric ulcers. BPC be used to protect the liver from toxic damage from medications, alcohol, and viruses. Helps promote the healing of traumatic brain injury. BPC is taken orally daily for a defined period of time.
KPV is a potent anti-inflammatory peptide that has shown promise in a number of disease conditions. The most active research is in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, where the peptide has shown substantial promise. KPV has been shown in animal studies to be safe and effective when administered orally, intravenously, subcutaneously, and transdermally. Research in wound healing also reveals that KPV may offer a host of benefits that speed wound healing, reduce infection, fight inflammation, and lead to better cosmetic results.
Can't Weight - DNF-10® peptide
DNF-10® is a protein hydrolysate from Saccharomyces cerevisiae. DNF-10® acts on the mediators of satiety (feeling full and satisfied); DNF-10® helps to lower calorie intake and reduce body fat mass. Benefits have been clinically demonstrated after the first weeks of use at 500mg/day.
CerebroPep - Brain Neurotrophic Factors and Neuropeptides
Neurotrophic peptides include nerve growth factor and porcine brain-derived neurotrophic factor. They are important for the maintenance of nerve structure and brain function as well as repair of brain and nerve injury. BNF and neuropeptides also help with brain fog and short-term memory. CerebroPep can be taken daily in capsule form.
PTD-DBM for Hair Restoration:
PTD-DBM is a hair follicle regeneration treatment. More specifically, it is a peptide-based topical scalp treatment that 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.
