Quarantine 15

When COVID-19 first hit, nearly every American was stuck in their house under quarantine. Because of this, most people fell off of their typical diets or exercise routines and gained some extra unwanted weight. While things are starting to open back up in most states, it still may be a struggle to gain back your motivation and lose the Quarantine 15. Supporting your body with proven supplements such as CLA can boost your ability to lose weight and strengthen muscle.

What Is CLA?

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is a naturally occurring fatty acid found in meat and dairy products. Because the human body can’t produce CLA, we can only get it through our diet or supplements in order to reap the benefits. It is also a popular dietary supplement that is sold with claims of helping people lose fat, maintain weight loss, and retain lean muscle mass.

Benefits of CLA

Supplementing your diet and exercise program with CLA daily has been clinically proven to improve body composition. It has been scientifically shown to improve lean muscle tone, enhance diet, and support metabolism. Atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, is when plaque builds up in the arteries. This is a risk factor for heart disease. One 2018 study on obese mice suggested that taking CLA supplements could protect against atherosclerosis. Additionally, individuals who get a lot of CLA from foods or take CLA supplements are at a lower risk of various diseases, including type 2 diabetes and cancer.

Everything to Know About Peptides

Peptides are one increasingly popular treatment option in regenerative medicine. With the right approach, they have the potential to rewrite body chemistry and produce a wide variety of positive trends in the body. A number of peptides have been approved by the FDA, so here’s what to know about peptides and how they can help your treatment approach.

What are Peptides?

Peptides are chains of amino acids. They’re linked together in a specific process to produce a protein. The body uses these proteins as signaling molecules facilitating the cell-to-cell communication and allowing the body to switch certain cell functions on or off. This property can be harnessed and used to trigger specific therapeutic effects. Some peptides are naturally occurring and others can be artificially synthesized in the laboratory.

What is Peptide Therapy?

While our bodies naturally produce peptides, the production of peptides in individuals can vary greatly. We generally see a decline in our bodies’ production of peptides as we age. This is where peptide therapy comes in. 

Peptide therapy is the targeted use of peptides to produce a specific reaction in the body. The peptides we prefer to focus on are Thymosin beta-4, which accelerates wound healing and increases metastatic potential of tumor cells. A peptide called Thymosin alpha-1 can modulate the immune system and is used for the treatment of various diseases. Another peptide we focus on is  BPC-157, which heightens the healing of many different types of tissue like tendons, muscles, and the nervous system. 

Cerebrolysin is another peptide that is being used more often because of its ability to enhance certain brain functions. When used in treatment, cerebrolysin has been proven to improve short and long term memory, enhance creativity, and increase motivation.

Benefits of Peptide Therapy

Peptide therapy is a safe and effective treatment option that doesn’t have any major side effects. Peptide therapy is not a magic cure to all ailments, but it does help significantly with many different conditions and symptoms. It works best in conjunction with other treatments you may be receiving currently. It’s a good way to improve your overall wellness without trying different treatments and having to go through extensive procedures. At its most basic, it’s a simple way to get healthier with benefits like wound healing, treatment for diseases, better sleep, increase in muscle mass, weight loss, increased sex drive, overall improved mood, and a slowed aging process.
