What are Peptides?

Peptides are the building blocks of life and are made from amino acids. Peptides make up enzymes, and are the reason millions of cellular activities occur. In recent years, the use of peptides in healthcare has grown and is now widely available as a treatment option for numerous conditions such as fatigue, anxiety, depression, weight loss, and building muscle mass, just to name a few. The unique properties of peptides can be harnessed and used to treat specific conditions; this treatment process is known as peptide therapy. This form of treatment can be entirely customized to the patient’s unique needs and goals. By using this targeted method, we can produce a specific reaction in the body and treat a variety of conditions.

Some Benefits of Peptide Therapy

  • Increased cognitive function and memory through increased oxygen delivery (Semax)
  • Increased energy and focus (Semax)
  • Relief of anxiety and depression (Selank, Semax)


Selank mimics Tuftsin, which is naturally occuring in the body and comes with a broad range of benefits. Selank has pronounced anxiolytic activity and acts as a stable antidepressant, anti-anxiety, and anti-stress medication.

Benefits may include:

  • Anti-anxiety
  • Enhanced mental concentration
  • Regulation of the activities of noradrenergic and serotonergic brain systems
  • Decreased stress levels
  • Improved cerebral energy
  • Better and steady mood
  • Superior learning aptitude and memory processes


Semax is a peptide for patients with depression, decreased motivation, and with pathologies related to brain circulation dysfunction. Semax is best known for its neurogenic/neurorestorative and neuroprotective properties. It is a modified snippet of a hormone called adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). Semax is the basis for a number of drugs that are used in clinical practice for the treatment of CNS diseases (ischemic brain stroke, dys-circulatory encephalopathy, optic nerve atrophy, etc.) and to enhance adaptability under extreme conditions in healthy persons. Currently this peptide is successfully used in treatment of patients with pathologies related to brain circulation dysfunction and with different intellectual amnestic problems. Doctors have prescribed it for many conditions like anxiety, depression, memory improvement, ischemic events, stroke, nerve regeneration, ADHD, opioid withdrawal, and even chronic diseases such as ALS, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s.

Benefits may include:

  • Increased attention and short-term memory
  • Relief of depression
  • Enhanced mental concentration
  • Increased brain BDNF levels
  • Helpful in the treatment of ADHD
  • Nootropic (cognitive-enhancing) effects
  • Neuroprotection: may help protect the brain from various types of stress and damage
  • Decreased anxiety and stress levels
