Peptide Therapy – Phoenix, AZ

Peptide therapy is a relatively new area of medicine that uses peptides, which are short chains of amino acids, to help regulate and optimize various physiological functions in the body. Peptides have a variety of functions, including acting as hormones, neurotransmitters, and growth factors. In recent years, peptide therapy has gained popularity in the field of weight loss due to its ability to help regulate appetite, increase metabolism, and promote fat burning.

Here at Elite, we are pleased to offer peptide therapy to men and women from all walks of life. Once we learn more about your symptoms and goals, we can recommend the ideal peptides.



How Peptide Therapy Helps With Weight Loss

  1. Increased metabolism: Peptide therapy can help increase metabolism, which is the rate at which the body burns calories. This can help individuals burn more calories and fat, which can lead to weight loss.
  2. Appetite regulation: Peptide therapy can help regulate appetite by affecting the hormones that control hunger and satiety. This can help individuals feel fuller for longer periods of time and reduce their overall caloric intake.
  3. Fat burning: Peptides can help stimulate the breakdown of fat cells, which can help promote weight loss.
  4. Improved insulin sensitivity: Peptide therapy can help improve insulin sensitivity, which is the body’s ability to use insulin to regulate blood sugar levels. This can help reduce the risk of developing insulin resistance, which can contribute to weight gain and obesity.
  5. Increased muscle mass: Peptide therapy can help promote the growth of lean muscle mass, which can help increase metabolism and promote fat burning.


Benefits May Include

• Promotes lipolysis
• Improves blood sugar levels in adults with Type 2 diabetes
• Lowers A1C
• Cardiovascular benefits
• Lowers risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attacks & strokes
• Lowers BMI
• Plaque hemorrhage is reduced
• Helps pancreatic insulin release to lower glucose levels in the bloodstream

The FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) more recently approved semaglutide as a prescription weight loss aid. Its approval has already improved the lives of chronically overweight patients.

Alongside the convenience of semaglutide, reducing your weight it also has many benefits, including…

• Reducing the risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stoke
• Lower blood pressure
• Improve mobility and reduce pain
• Improved mood
• Improved sleep
• Increase self-esteem
• Lower the risk for certain cancers

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) analog as an FDA approved treatment method for improving glycemic control in patients with Type 2 diabetes. It increases insulin secretion, which is good for diabetes. At higher doses, it can act on centers in the brain and help suppress appetite. Used in conjunction with lifestyle changes and a reduced-calorie diet, Semaglutide can have a very successful outcome with weight loss and lowering high blood pressure. Studies show that Semaglutide can reduce appetite, improve control of eating, and reduce food cravings in addition to improved glycemic control. Some studies show negative side effects may include nausea, diarrhea and even vomiting decrease nausea effect.


It’s is known as a “growth hormone-releasing peptide” (GHRP)

GHRPs allow for a slow and steady growth hormone release that produces a pulse which mimics natural growth hormone (GH) release times and Growth Hormone Releasing Hormones for an even stronger natural release of growth hormone.

Ipamorelin works in two ways. First, it increases the natural growth hormone releasing hormone which leads to high levels of growth hormone secretion. Secondly, Ipamorelin suppresses the somatostatin hormone that stops the production of growth hormones in your body. Ipamorelin removes every barrier that blocks the natural production of the growth hormone, therefore improving your growth hormone production rate. The greater your growth hormone production, the younger you’ll look and feel.

It’s a synthetic analog of growth-hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) that releases human growth hormone (HGH) by the anterior pituitary.

Men and women produce far less growth hormone as they get older, losing as much as 14% of circulating growth hormone every 10 years after the age of 30:

This contributes to many common “aging” effects such as low energy, difficulty in maintaining or building muscle, slow metabolism, reoccurrence of nagging injuries and more. Therefore, Ipamorelin and CJC-1295 allow us to bypass this aging process by allowing our body to produce growth hormone like in our prime.

Ipamorelin + CJC

When Ipamorelin and CJCare expertly combined, your body produces a stronger and more steady release of HGH. Ipamorelin releases the pulse of HGH, and the CJC-1295 releases and amplifies this pulse.

CJC and Ipamorelin are typically combined in therapy because they are known to work well together. CJC takes anywhere from 1-4 hours to reach peak serum in the blood, while Ipamorelin works much quicker. Ipamorelin is cleared from the body more rapidly as its half-life is about 2 hours. The combination of both peptides ensures a rapid onset with Ipamorelin and lasting effects with CJC. In fact, this is the most used combination of therapeutic peptides prescribed for anti-aging.

Benefits May Include

•  Improves endogenous NAD+ Utilization
• Caloric restriction mimetic
• Exercise mimetic
• Increase mitochondrial biogenesis
• Increase fat oxidation
• Decreased Insulin resistance
• Activation of SIRT1 and AMPK

LeuSynergy is a peptide-enhancing supplement that activates proteins called SIRTUINS by enhancing the cell’s use of the longevity molecule NAD+. This compound works specifically on SIRT-1 to control cell signaling to improve fat oxidation and mitochondrial density, enhance the internal antioxidant system and decrease inflammation. LeuSynergy mimics the same pathways associated with exercise and calorie restriction. This combination of amino acids and polyphenols enhances glucose control, fat loss, and energy.


Tesofensine is a serotonin-noradrenaline-dopamine reuptake inhibitor which was originally studied for its effect on Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Unfortunately, its exploration for these indications were limited because the research subjects starting losing too much weight. Since then, tesofensine has been studied as a way to treat obesity via its ability to reduce appetite. This molecular compound indirectly stimulates the cholinergic system and showed to be more successful than other weight loss agents. Tesofensine (TE) increases transmission of 3 monoaminergic neurotransmitters in the brain. These neurotransmitters are serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine which help regulate energy balance and are linked to obesity and depression. On average, its 6-month weight loss results from a phase 2b clinical trial resulted in a weight loss of around 25 pounds. TE research has shown a pronounced effect on appetite sensations and a slight effect on energy expenditure. Both effects can contribute to the strong weight reducing effect.

5-Amino-1MQ + NMN

5-Amino-1MQ is a small, selective, membrane permeable molecule that is an NNMT inhibitor, and an ideal ingredient for anti-obesity medication. 5-amino-1MQ is a derivative of methylquinolinium (MQ) which has exhibited a high efficacy in NNMT inhibition, cell viability, and membrane permeability. This NNMT inhibitor could be used to prevent adipogenesis and type II diabetes, and reverse diet-induced obesity as a result of increased intracellular NAD+ and SAM.
5-Amino-1MQ taken in conjunction with a low calorie or ketogenic diet can result in increase fat burning/body fat consumption over time. It is recommended to commit to 2-3 months of 5-Amino to see results. Consume once per day in the morning.
