What is Peptide Therapy?

Peptide therapy is one of the most exciting new therapies to help treat disease and aging.  It is becoming more and more popular because it is generally considered safe with far-reaching regulatory and rejuvenation actions on the body. Peptides have the potential to rewrite bodily chemistry relationships that can bring balance to the body. They are also used in the treatment of injury, chronic disease, and for enhancing peak performance in the body.

What are Peptides?

Let’s get more specific about what peptide therapy is. Peptides are chains of amino acids (proteins) that act as a signaling system in the body to maintain crucial functions, including: hormonal balance, cell signaling, and cell-to-cell communication. These extremely beneficial properties make peptides incredible building blocks for targeted drug design and development. The way your body loses weight, your digestion, your sexual function, and more is controlled by these small proteins. Thus, peptide therapy can support these functions of the naturally occurring peptides in your body.

Most beneficial to using peptides as therapeutics is that they can be engineered for precision. Over 7,000 naturally occurring peptides have been identified, and many have already been FDA approved.

More benefits of peptides for therapeutic medicine are as follows:

·       Low toxicity
·       High chemical and biological diversity
·       High potency and specificity
·       Good efficacy, safety, and tolerability
·       Broad range of targets
·       Low accumulation in tissues

The most exciting advantage of peptide therapies is that they can be designed to target virtually any cellular process in the body.

What Do Peptides Help Treat?

Peptides can be used to treat a wide range of symptoms and illnesses. The following is just a few of the potential conditions that can benefit from peptides:


  • Autoimmune Issues
  • Insomnia
  • Hormone Imbalance
  • Gut Issues
  • Inflammation
  • Lyme disease
  • Dementia/Alzheimer’s
  • Mold-related illness
  • Joint injury
  • HIV and chronic infections (HBV, HCV, CMV, etc.)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • TBI
  • Neurodegenerative conditions (Parkinson’s, MS, etc.)
  • Erectile dysfunction, low libido
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
  • Weight Gain
  • and…SO much more.

What Types of Peptide Therapy are Available?

Tringali Vibrant Health offers the following Peptide Therapies:

Below is a quick summary of some of the most popular peptides we prescribe at Tringali Vibrant Health:


Anti-Obesity Drug-9604 (AOD-9604) is a synthetic analog of the human growth hormone. It is among the rare peptides that have won the FDA approval as a food supplement in the United States.

Recent clinical research studies have shown that AOD-9604 did show a reduction of body fat in the mid-abdominal area in both obese, over-weight, and average built people.

AOD-9604 Benefits:

  • AOD-9604 Peptide therapy has been shown to:
  • Reduce Body Fat
  • Trigger fat release from obese fat cells predominantly more than lean ones
  • Mimics the way natural growth hormone regulates fat metabolism
  • Have no adverse effects on blood sugar or growth
  • Stimulate lipolysis
  • Inhibits lipogenesis that’s the transformation of non-fatty foods into body fat
  • Have very favorable cartilage repair and regenerative properties, especially when paired with peptide BPC 157

Body Protective Compound 157 (BPC-157) is a peptide that has been recently studied to produce systemic effects on both the brain and the gut, and repair those systems. It also has protective effects extending beyond the stomach and intestinal tract. It has been shown to benefit: ulcers in the stomach, intestinal damage such as fistulas and inflammatory disorders, bone and joint healing and growth rates, and organ damage. It also has influences on the brain. BPC-157 is a peptide chain consisting of 15 amino acids. BPC-157 is considered synthetic because this particular sequence does not exist in nature. It is derived from a protective protein found in the stomach. It can be administered orally, subcutaneously, intramuscularly, or intranasally.

• Has significant anti-inflammatory modulating effects
• Promotes tissue healing through signaling pathways
• Provides specific response toparticular injury thru cell signaling
• Promotes muscle & tendon healing, increases angiogenesis, decreases inflammatory response.
• Produces more type 1 collagen.
• Excellent potential for diabetic wound healing.
• Also repairs intestine, bone, teeth, brain tissue and the cornea.
• Works to correct acute & chronic body conditions.
• Systemic in action but can also be administered by injection directly to site of injury.
• BPC 157 can counteract steroid effects to achieve normal healing of muscle tissue.
• Improves nerve regeneration
• Induces release of serotonin in nigrostriatal area of brain
• Counteracts side effects of Parkinsons agents

Elizabeth Tringali, PA-C’s Own Telomere Report!

Even Elizabeth Tringali, PA-C herself uses Epitalon peptide therapy. Elizabeth’s telomere length is in the 99th percentile of her age group!


Epitalon is considered the “fountain of youth” peptide. It is a tetra-peptide, which means that it is composed of four amino acid chains. The peptide is used to regulate the cell cycle during telomerase activity. Telomerase, also called telomere terminal transferase, is an enzyme made of protein and RNA subunits that elongates chromosomes. When telomerase activity is not present (when we age), our cells age. Our telomeres get shorter and begin to die off. If telomerase is activated in our cells, our telomeres lengthen, the cell continues to grow and divide, delaying the aging process. (UT Southwestern Medical Lab)

Epitalon was discovered by the Russian scientist Professor Vladimir Khavinson. He researched this peptide of over 35 years in both animal and human clinical trials. The results were astounding. For the first time ever, human clinical trials proved beyond doubt that the substance consisted of powerful life extension and anti-aging possibilities.

Epitalon Benefits:
Epitalon Peptide therapy can:

  • Increase human lifespan
  • Delay/Prevent age-related diseases
  • Boost energy levels
  • Promote deeper sleep
  • Improve skin health and appearance
  • Heal deteriorated/injured muscle cells
