Everything You Need To Know About HGH Peptides

Have you ever said to someone, “I’m feeling my age today”? You probably meant you were feeling a bit tired, maybe a little anxious or fretful, and certainly you felt as if your body just wasn’t coping with daily life as well as it used to.

What if you could go back to the energy levels you once enjoyed? The sexual vigor that’s all too often just a memory, the physical strength and lean body you took for granted when you were younger? With HGH peptides, that’s a real possibility. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about what HGH peptides are, how they work, and whether they’re right for you.

What Are HGH Peptides?

Your pituitary gland naturally produces human growth hormone (HGH). HGH spurred your growth as a child and helped launch you into puberty. It keeps functioning as you become an adult, regulating everything from bone growth and metabolism to muscle development and cardiovascular function.

As you get older, though, your pituitary gland slacks off just a bit. It still produces HGH, but not in the amounts you enjoyed when you were younger. As a result, you start to age. You gain weight. Your muscle mass starts to deteriorate. Your energy levels drop (including in the bedroom). Your brain gets foggy.

You don’t have to settle for diminished levels of HGH though. This is where HGH peptides come in.

Peptides are proteins, essentially chains of amino acids that help the body function normally. Many peptides occur naturally in food, and others are produced synthetically to be used as supplements. Dozens of peptides are approved for safe use in the United States, with insulin being the most well-known and commonly used. Each type of peptide has a specific purpose and role.

HGH peptides perform the specific role of boosting the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus to produce more HGH. They encourage these glands to release more natural HGH, thereby boosting your energy levels with none of the side effects that can accompany introducing HGH directly into your body from the outside.

How Do HGH Peptides Work?

The pituitary gland controls the release of all sorts of hormones throughout your body, including human growth hormone. When HGH peptides stimulate the pituitary gland, it increases its production and secretion of HGH. These HGH peptides mimic the function of the peptides that are no longer doing their job within your body. As a result, your pituitary gland gets a reboot that revitalizes your system in many ways, slowing down the natural progression of aging.

While some people have tried to take human growth hormone directly, doing so comes with some real risks that are minimized when you use HGH peptides instead. HGH supplementation has a tendency to boost blood sugar levels, running the risk of diabetes, and it has also been associated with some joint issues. But with HGH peptides, your body is producing its own HGH, so those risks are all negligible.

The Benefits of Taking HGH Peptides

Men who take HGH peptides start to see real differences in their bodies fairly quickly. While many of the benefits of HGH peptides don’t make themselves fully known for up to six months, you can expect to notice positive changes usually within a few weeks.

Among those positive changes, the benefits you’re likely to experience may include:

  • An increased metabolic burn, resulting in weight loss, including loss of belly fat
  • Better sleep quality
  • Boosted energy levels
  • Increased libido/sex drive
  • Improved physical strength
  • A stronger immune system
  • Increased lean muscle mass
  • Better mental clarity and focus (and less brain fog)
  • Smoother, more elastic skin
  • Improved stamina
  • Healthier cholesterol levels
  • Faster wound healing
  • Improved bone density
  • Thicker hair
  • Less muscle or joint pain

Are You a Good Candidate for HGH Peptides?

Most men who are good candidates for HGH peptides are in their 40s or older and have been experiencing some lag in their energy levels. The overall feeling of fatigue and lethargy you experience, as well as the related lack of motivation, can be mitigated by the addition of HGH peptides. If you have a family history of diabetes, cancer, or cardiovascular disease, HGH peptides may help reduce risks in these areas.

Many men find themselves gaining weight as they hit midlife — just as weight loss starts to become more difficult than it’s ever been. Because HGH helps regulate metabolism and fat production, the use of HGH peptides can help you get control of your weight, with the added bonus of replacing excess weight with increased muscle mass.

If you’re having trouble sleeping, HGH peptide therapy might also be a solution. Men who avail themselves of HGH peptide therapy typically see improved sleep quantity and quality, with extra energy during daytime hours.

Some people should not take HGH peptides. If you are on thyroid medication or you’re taking any corticosteroids for any reason, you should avoid HGH peptide therapy. Anyone with cancer should also avoid it, as HGH can cause cancer cells to grow.

The Types of HGH Peptides

Several types of HGH peptides are available to help you increase energy levels and vitality. At Boston Vitality, we find ipamorelin, CJC-1295, and PT-141 (bremelanotide) are ideal for most men. While all these HGH peptides work in a similar way, each has a slightly different set of benefits.


This growth hormone-releasing hormone stimulates not just the release of HGH but also the production of ghrelin, commonly known as the “hunger hormone,” which lets you know when you’re hungry and regulates your calorie intake. Ipamorelin also pushes back against the chemical somatostatin, which has an inhibiting effect on your body’s systems. It’s a powerful anti-aging HGH peptide that can help with:

  • Increased energy
  • Decreased belly/abdominal fat
  • Boosted cardiovascular system
  • Increased lean muscle mass
  • Improved bone density
  • Boosted immune system
  • Improved sleep
  • Boosted sexual function and sex drive
  • Decreased cholesterol


We often pair this HGH peptide with ipamorelin to get the best possible results for the men of Massachusetts. CJC-1295 enables your pituitary gland to produce more HGH without stimulating it to produce higher quantities of hormones that you don’t need. Among the effects you can expect to see from CJC-1295 are:

  • Boosted metabolism
  • Increased production of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1)
  • Improved lean muscle mass
  • Revitalized sex drive
  • Speedy recovery after workouts or injuries
  • Improved immune system
  • Increased energy and decreased fatigue
  • Decrease in fat storage
  • Improved skin tightness for an anti-aging effect

PT-141 (Bremelanotide)

This unique peptide is specialized to focus on sexual function. It helps produce erections but does far more than a drug such as Viagra and works in a completely different way through your central nervous system. Bremelanotide also treats premature ejaculation and impotence, and you can see its results within a few minutes.

The HGH Peptide Process

Because each man is different, the specific dosages of HGH peptide therapy can vary significantly from one individual to the next. At Boston Vitality, our experienced health care professionals will go through your test results to help figure out exactly what your treatment should include, matching the right HGH peptides and dosages to your unique needs. We’ll also keep an eye on your results so that we can work together collaboratively throughout your treatment to see whether any changes are needed.

HGH peptides are generally administered via daily injections. If you’re a good candidate and decide to go forward with this remarkable therapy, we will train you on how to perform the injections yourself.

Each cycle of HGH peptide therapy lasts between one to two months, with some flexibility depending on the amount and speed of change you’re hoping to see. It’s natural to want to see instant changes — but remember, we’re not taking the risky path of injecting HGH directly into your bloodstream. Instead, we’re encouraging your pituitary gland to amp up its natural production of HGH, and that can take some time to occur safely and reliably.

What Results Can You Expect (and How Long Will It Take To See Them)?

Since your body is boosting its levels of HGH naturally, you can expect to see your earliest results within a couple of months. Most men notice the change in muscle tone first. You may also start to feel some of the psychological effects of treatment fairly early on as well, noticing increased energy levels and boosted motivation and focus. Many men report that they feel more positive about their lives right around this point in the treatment. Your sleep quality will also improve early in the process.

By the six-month point, you can expect to see significant changes throughout your body. Most men will experience a noted increase in skin elasticity, which is one of the key factors involved in the appearance of aging. You’re also likely to see a 10% reduction in body fat across your entire body, especially around your stomach. You’ll also feel significantly more energy at this point, with a boost in your sex drive and, in many cases, in your sexual performance.

While some of the changes you’re experiencing are invisible, they’re occurring nonetheless. For example, you’re not going to notice your improved bone density, but those stronger bones will stand you in good stead as you lead your active life.

As you go through the process, you’ll work with your physician to make any adjustments in your treatment as needed. Possibly you’ll reduce the number of injections you take per week, depending on your results and what you’re hoping to achieve. The doctor may also tweak your dosages slightly to get the right results.
