At Balanced Bodies Decatur, we offer tailored peptide protocols to address your specific health and wellness requirements. Whether you’re aiming to shed weight, enhance muscle mass, boost energy, fortify immunity, improve skin radiance, expedite injury recovery or increase libido, we’ve got you covered with Peptide therapy.

Peptides have a broad range of applications, from increasing growth hormone production, treating obesity and age-related loss of lean muscle, to repairing tissues such as tendons, ligaments, and muscles. They can also address collagen depletion and the reduction of wrinkles, decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, and even dementia. As we age, our bodies produce fewer essential amino acids and peptides, resulting in signs of aging and suboptimal performance. Currently, numerous peptides are in clinical use, and many others are being actively researched, with over 7,000 naturally occurring peptides identified. Peptides have been lauded as the “fountain of youth” by Hollywood for years, with benefits starting within weeks and further improvements with continued therapy. Full effects are typically observed after 3-6 months of treatment.

What are Peptides

Peptides are brief protein chains that comprise amino acids and act as messengers to target specific receptors in the body. Each peptide therapy has a distinct chemical structure and mechanism of action. Some peptides may function like neurotransmitters, while others may act like hormones. Peptides have a significant impact on how the body responds to diet and exercise, particularly in terms of issues like fatigue, endurance, poor recovery, injury, and healing. If you’re experiencing any of these concerns, peptide therapy may offer potential benefits.

Routes of Administration

Peptides can be delivered through various routes, such as oral capsules, dissolvable tablets or injections. The frequency of peptide intake typically ranges from 5 to 7 days per week, depending on the specific condition being treated. Optimal results from peptide therapy are achieved when all hormones are in balance, coupled with healthy lifestyle practices such as a nutritious diet and regular exercise regimen.

Optimal Health & Wellness

List of Peptides

Fat Burning


The results of the study were remarkable, with over 70% of participants achieving weight loss of 15-20% of their total body weight. This represents more than double the weight loss achieved by any other weight loss medication currently approved by the FDA.

Benefits of Semaglutide and Exenatide for Weight Loss

  • Appetite suppression
  • Feel full faster
  • Slower digestion through stomach
  • Diminish hunger and cravings
  • Lowers leptin levels
  • Lowers blood sugars
  • Lowers A1c levels
  • Better sleep patterns


AOD 9604(Fat Burning Peptide)

AOD 9604 is a synthesized peptide that contains the last 15 amino acids of the growth hormone sequence. Studies have shown that these specific amino acids are responsible for the fat burning properties of growth hormones. AOD 9604 can increase metabolism and reduce body fat, particularly in the abdominal area. It stimulates the breakdown of fat cells, a process called lipolysis, which results in the release of stored fat. Moreover, it does not have any negative impact on blood sugar, insulin levels or cortisol, which are important factors for overall health.

Repair Your Body

BPC 157 (Repair and Recovery)

Research has demonstrated that BPC 157 accelerates the healing of tendons and promotes superior healing of damaged ligaments. Moreover, this peptide has exhibited protective effects on organs and has been found to prevent stomach ulcers. Additionally, BPC 157 is known to alleviate pain in injured areas. Individuals experiencing discomfort resulting from muscle sprains, tears, and damage may find treatment with this peptide beneficial. It may also aid in the recovery process of burn injuries by stimulating blood flow to damaged tissues.

Thymosin beta-4 (Recovery and Repair)

Thymosin is a hormone secreted from the thymus, which is essential for maintaining a healthy immune system. Thymosin-beta4, on the other hand, plays a critical role in tissue repair, protection, regeneration, and remodeling of injured or damaged tissues.


Bremelanotide PT-141 (Libido Booster)

Bremelanotide has been shown to enhance sexual arousal and stimulate spontaneous erections, making it effective in treating sexual dysfunction in both men (erectile dysfunction or impotence) and women (sexual arousal disorder). Unlike medications such as Viagra, which act upon the vascular system, bremelanotide directly increases sexual desire through the nervous system.

Growth Hormone Optimization

CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin (Increase GH & IGF-1 Levels)

Using two powerful Growth Hormone Releasing Hormones (GHRH), can stimulate the pituitary gland to produce and secrete more Human Growth Hormone (HGH). When administered together, these peptides have shown to increase HGH levels up to 5 times more than when used separately. Compared to the usage of synthetic GH, this approach is a more natural way to induce HGH production with less concern for side effects. This peptide combination can enhance lean muscle mass, improve sleep quality and promote recovery, enhance skin health and appearance, increase libido, and burn visceral and abdominal fat. We recommend a treatment period of at least 6 months, with daily administration for 5 days and 2 days off. CJC 1295, one of the peptides, has been shown to have 10 times the fat burning effects compared to other peptides.

Ibutamoren MK-677 (Increase GH & IGF-1 Levels)

Ibutamoren is a peptide that stimulates the secretion of growth hormone and IGF-1, while having little or no effect on other hormones like cortisol. It is commonly used to increase lean muscle mass, reduce body fat, and aid in recovery and repair. This peptide can be taken orally once a day for optimal results.

Sermorelin (Increase GH & IGF-1 Levels)

Sermorelin is one of the first growth hormone-releasing peptides developed. Similar to HGH, Sermorelin offers a variety of benefits, such as reducing body fat, increasing lean muscle mass, improving sleep quality, enhancing recovery, boosting libido, and enhancing cognitive function.


GHK-Cu (Improved Skin Appearance)

The use of copper peptide GHK-Cu has been shown in research to improve the appearance of skin, resulting in reduced visibility and depth of wrinkles, increased firmness, and improved elasticity. Results from studies indicate a 35% decrease in fine lines and wrinkles and a 70% increase in collagen within 3 months of consistent use. These findings support the anti-aging, firming, and anti-wrinkle properties of copper peptide GHK-Cu.

Melanotan 2 (Natural Tan without the Sun)

Melanotan 2 is a peptide that stimulates the production of melanocytes, which results in skin tanning, as well as providing protection from harmful UV rays. This peptide has also been reported to have a positive impact on libido, as well as a mild effect on fat mobilization and appetite suppression.

Immune Support

Thymosin alpha 1 (Immune Booster)

Thymosin alpha 1 is a natural hormone that is secreted by the thymus gland, where immune cells such as T cells mature and are released. This peptide has been shown to effectively combat both acute and chronic infections and exhibits antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal properties and protection against oxidative stress. Thymosin alpha 1 has been used to treat a variety of medical conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Lyme disease, chronic fatigue, hepatitis, HIV, and immune dysfunction.
