Premium Prescription Peptides

prescription peptide hormones

At Newin Institute we offer the highest quality Australian-made prescription peptides under the guidance of Dr Rhett Bosnich, who is an experienced Regenerative Medicine doctor with a special interest in peptide hormone therapy. We use a quality pharmaceutical facility to custom-make your premium quality synthetic peptide medication.

Under the consultation and supervision of our doctor, we can offer you a personalised prescription peptide management plan.

What are peptides useful for and who should take them?

Among other benefits, peptide supplements are commonly and safely used in exercise, anti-ageing and regenerative medicine to:

  • Encourage weight loss
  • Improve muscle strength
  • Improved physical endurance and well-being
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Reduce pain, eg joint pain associated with osteoarthritis

As long as you are under the guidance of a registered doctor who understand this area of medicine, most men and women of variety of ages can receive benefits of one peptide or another.

Perhaps you are having difficulty losing weight and require a peptide medication to combine with your diet…

Perhaps you are looking to boost your training regime by increasing muscle strength, physical endurance and muscle bulk, or…

Perhaps you are trying to achieve anti-aging benefits by promoting cellular regeneration, boost your immune function and optimise your body’s ability to resist fatique and other symptoms of ageing.

How do I obtain prescription synthetic peptides?

There are new laws about selling peptides on-line and you must consult with a suitably qualified and registered doctor.

Your first step is to contact us to arrange a consultation with the doctor. He will ask questions about your medical history and what you would like to achieve or improve about your medical health. The doctor will organise for blood tests where necessary and make an assessment about which peptides, if any, are suitable for you and what benefits could be achieved through specific peptide supplement use.

Once you and the doctor have decided which peptides you may best benefit from, you can order and pay for your peptides with the clinic. Once manufactured by the pharmaceutical company, they will be despatched and either posted to you or may collect them from our clinic in Melbourne or Sydney.

On-going treatment by peptide medication

Use of prescription peptides requires ongoing supervision by the doctor. So, in order to continue purchasing peptide medications at Newin Institute, you will need to be regularly reviewed by the doctor. We aim to ensure the safe and efficable use of peptide supplements and to check that you are achieving the benefits of your peptide management program as planned.

The regular review and monitoring of your response to therapy allows the doctor to ensure you are using  the medications safely and enables the doctor to make any necessary adjustments to your dosage or type of peptide prescribed. Changes to your health can also influence the need to make adjustments, so it is always advisable to maintain regular contact with the doctor.

What is a Peptide?

Peptide is a common umbrella name that covers many classes of short chain of amino acid monomers linked by “peptide” (amide) bonds.

Peptides are distinguished from proteins on the basis of size  of the amino acid chains .  Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, though in much shorter lengths (less than 50 units long). Proteins are longer, containing more than 50 amino acids.

In the world of regenerative, nutritional and exercise science and medicine, peptides generally refer to one of two things. They can refer to either:

  • Broken protein fragments from hydrolysed proteins, or
  • Peptide hormones and related peptide compounds

Types of Peptide

A “neuropeptide” is a peptide that is active in association with neural tissue. Such peptides can often be found in topical cosmetic products. Chemically, when applied to specific areas of the face, neuropeptides, such as Argireline, inhibit the reactions that cause muscles to move or contract when forming facial expressions such as smiling or frowning.

A “lipopeptide” is a peptide that has a lipid (or fatty acid chain) connected to it. These are used in antibiotics.

A “peptide hormone” is a peptide that acts as a hormone, and examples include Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone.

Important role of various peptides in the human body

Built from amino acids, peptides provide many of the structures on the body, including hair, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. They form the haemoglobin in the blood, carrying oxygen throughout the body to muscles and organs. Peptides are also the main building blocks for enzymes that catalyse chemical reactions for cell functions, and they provide the signals on the outer surface of cells so your body can communicate systemically.

Different peptides do different things, so peptides have a wide range of applications in medicine and biotechnology. They regulate most physiological processes, acting at some sites as endocrine or paracrine signals and at others as neurotransmitters or growth factors.

Insulin was the first therapeutic protein to be introduced to treat insulin-dependent diabetes in the 1920s. A number of peptides are used for diagnostic purposes, for example  C-peptide is used to monitor insulin production and to help determine the cause of low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia).

Classes of Hormones

What may be unknown to some people is that human hormones can come in three classes:

Steroid Hormones – sex and stress hormones, such as testosterone, oestrogen, and cortisol, etc

Eicosanoid Hormones – derived from fatty lipids, such as prostaglandins (signalling molecules in inflammation and the inflammatory response)

Peptide Hormones – derived from amino acids, such as melatonin, thyroxine, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, etc

Peptide Hormones in the human body

Peptide hormones are made from amino acids. The most popular known peptide hormones are human growth hormone (hGH) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (or IGF1), both of which are anabolic hormone that is responsible for cell growth and proliferation.

The difference between Peptide Hormones versus Steroid Hormones

A significant difference between steroid hormones and peptide hormones is that some steroid hormones demonstrate oral activity and can be active after they are taken by mouth.

However, many peptide hormones, when swallowed, are digested in the same way as proteins: the peptides are broken down into single amino acids in the digestive system, so they no longer have the bioactivity of their parent compound. Consequently, they may need to be administered by injections or transdermal creams to avoid being destroyed by digestion.

Some peptide hormones are capable of increasing the release of human growth hormone (hGH), for example growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH). GHRH is naturally produced in the hypothalamus of the brain. This hormone binds to the growth hormone releasing hormone receptor to stimulate the release of growth hormone. Over recent years, pharmaceutical companies have developed synthetic peptide hormones, known as secretagogues, that also stimulate the release of hGH. These include substances such as GHRP6 and CJC-1295, etc.

What is a Synthetic Peptide Hormone

Synthetic peptides are amino acid molecules that artificially developed for specific therapeutic purposes, for example that mimic the actions of naturally occurring peptide hormones in the body. These laboratory-made peptides are manufactured using new advanced, expensive and complicated scientific processes.

How is a Synthetic Peptide medication administered?

Peptides are most effective is administered via transdermal cream (topical skin application, usually on a nightly basis) or via sub-cubtaneous injection.
