In this short video, MHI founders unveil the world of peptides – what they are, their range of uses, and the exciting benefits they bring to the world of health optimization.
The Future Of Precision Medicine
Thanks to the advances in science, we now have the capacity to extend our lifespans. This progress has facilitated tangibly ways to mitigate, and in numerous ways, reverse age related conditions. Through peptides, we are now able to give the body back the ability to do what it did very effectively in its younger days. Peptides about enhancing cellular efficiency, increasing metabolic flexibility, and decreasing senescent cells–which are the first cells to become cancerous. Peptides restore effective function in our bodies.
We are proud to say that we are at the forefront of this cutting edge technology as approved members of both the International Peptide Society, and Dr. William Seed’s Scientific Research & Performance (SSRP), which is the “gold-standard” for peptide expert practitioners. We believe peptides have a significant influence on the future of medicine and we use them strategically within our Tier System to advance our patients in their optimization of journey.

A Word On “No Prescription” Peptide Sources:
Consumers need to understand that a peptide must possess a purity grade of at least 99.6%. Put simply, anything falling below this standard poses a significant risk.
When a peptide is introduced into the body, it breaks down into its smallest biological components (hydrolysis). However, when a peptide is “impure”, it generates fragments that are essentially unfamiliar and have harmful impacts on both the body and the brain. These fragments have been linked to issues such as liver toxicity, cellular senescence, and even the development of cancer. Furthermore, these fragments can adversely affect your DNA without your awareness!
Dr. William Seeds has conducted specific assessments which have demonstrated the detrimental influence of impure peptides on DNA. This highlights the critical nature of avoiding non-pure peptides, as their repercussions can pose challenges that are hard to rectify in the future
As healthcare providers, our foremost responsibility is to ensure the continual well-being of our patients. Anything less would be considered a breach of our commitment to responsible medical care.
Therefore, when considering peptide therapy, it becomes absolutely essential for it to be overseen by a competent healthcare professional and sourced from a reputable establishment, such as an FDA-approved 503A/B compounding pharmacy. Moreover, stringent third-party testing must be in place to ensure the purity, quality, and efficacy of the peptides being used.
While the prospect of acquiring peptides without a prescription from an unauthorized source might appear cost-effective, it’s crucial to thoroughly weigh the associated health risks against the potential benefits and apparent cost savings. After our thorough examination– it’s simply not worth the risks.

FAQs About Forms Of Peptides
Although there are some peptides that can be administered orally, topically, and even intra-nasally, the vast majority of peptides are administered via either subcutaneous or even intramuscular injections. To be sure, these injections are done with tiny insulin syringes which are virtually painless if done correctly.
When discussing peptide side effects, it’s important to distinguish their nature. Generally, peptides are remarkably low in serious health risks, making them remarkably safe. However, there are potential minor effects. For instance, an excessively high dosage might lead to receptor site oversaturation, causing the peptide’s efficacy to diminish. Specific types of peptides may trigger temporary flushing, redness, or itchiness at the injection site.
Regarding GLP Peptides: A novel class of peptides called GLPs (Glucagon-like peptide), commonly known as Semaglutide (Ozempic/Wegovy) or Tirzepitide (Mounjaro), have become extremely popular for their weight loss effects. These peptides can present more substantial side effects, often correlated with dosage. These include: nausea, vomiting, abdominal discomfort, constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, and even pancreatitis. However, when overseen by a professional these side effects are very rare.
The timing varies depending on the specific peptide’s characteristics. While some peptides exhibit immediate effects, it can take around 12 weeks to witness their complete impact. Conversely, certain peptides serve more prolonged purposes, such as those categorized under the “anti-aging” class. Remember, the synergy of a healthy lifestyle is crucial for peptides to reach their full potential. Peptides therapy thrives alongside proper nutrition and regular exercise. Consider that peptides act as cellular messengers, directing cellular actions. However, if cells lack vital raw materials like Amino Acids, Magnesium, Vitamin D, Nitric Oxide, NAD, Omega 3s, and electrolytes, the peptide’s function will not fully flourish. In essence, this results in the peptide not delivering its maximum benefit.
The duration varies depending on the specific peptide’s characteristics.Some peptides need periodic breaks to prevent Tachyphylaxis, which refers to a reduced response with repetitive use, and even the development of antibodies. Conversely, certain peptides can be comfortably continued over the long term, as they don’t present the same tolerance challenge. Given peptides’ safety profile, the decision to continue long term rests with you, depending on the desired outcome. However, it’s crucial to note that your journey with peptides should be overseen by a professional, who will adeptly guide you through factors like timing, dosing, and appropriate cyclical patterns to ensure an optimal experience.
In the vast majority of cases – No. Unfortunately, the current statistic shows a lag of 17-23 years for traditional medicine to catch up with current medical advancements. As a result, the majority of insurance companies don’t view peptides as either viable treatments nor medical necessity.
The only class of peptides that may be covered by insurance are GLP (Glucagon-like peptide). GLPs are commonly known for their weight loss properties and the ability to treat obesity and type II diabetes. Insurance coverage for GLP treatments can vary based on several factors, including your insurance provider, the specific GLP medication, your medical condition, and the terms of your insurance plan.
