Should you consider weight loss peptides?

Regenerative medicine is a form of medical care that goes beyond only managing disease. It offers scientific and evidence-based therapies that allow the body to regenerate (or repair) itself into a higher state of function.

As you move through the menopause transition, you’re likely wishing for that that pre-menopause version of yourself back, without the added weight around the middle, the joint pain, or the changes to your sleep patterns. We are here to help you shatter the myth that your pre-menopause self is the best version of you there will ever be. While hormone changes during the menopause transition can impact everything from body composition to mental clarity to fitness and strength, a combined approach including regenerative medicine options –combined with lifestyle changes — can put you on a path for long-term health and wellness.

Sounds magical but really it’s just the forward progression of science creating new options for thriving in this new stage of your life.

Peptides: A Regenerative Medicine Option

There are many different types of peptides with varying benefits including anti-aging, anti-inflammation, enhanced immunity, improved skin elasticity and hydration, better bone health and muscle growth. Peptides which specifically address menopausal symptoms include:

Weight Management: Peptides designed for weight loss work by 
slowing the emptying of the stomach, helping people feel fuller for a longer period of time, which leads to reduced appetite. Many people using the peptide are experiencing quick and significant weight loss. It is of particular interest to women aged 45 years and older as the loss of estrogen during menopause can lead to belly fat and a lowered efficiency in using carbohydrates. This peptide can help jumpstart weight loss and bring blood sugar levels back under control ultimately improving health outlooks going forward, both of benefit for women who may be pre-diabetic or diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

Mental Clarity
: A peptide with a very different use is a synthetic peptide derived from the human peptide tuftsin, associated with the immune system. This peptide may help improve learning, memory, cognition, depression, and energy. Since brain function can decline by as much as 30% during menopause, this peptide can be a helpful in re-instating some of that function to allow for better mental performance.

Skin, Bone & Joint Health: With menopause comes skin sagging, higher fracture risk and joint pain among other things. One reason for this is that collage production declines as we age. Collagen peptides are an option to help reduce these impacts. There are two types of collagen: Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 Collagen accounts for 90% of the body’s collagen with its role being to provide structure to bone, skin, tendons, cartilage, and connective tissue. It is also the collagen best known for providing better skin elasticity or “plumpness”.   Type 2 Collagen is better known for helping cushion joints. While some foods contain collagen, there’s a lack of science to suggest that eating collagen can directly benefit skin or joint health.

Lifestyle Interventions + Peptides for Menopause

b-untethered is excited to announce a partnership with Telegenixx, providing our followers with access to peptides paired with lifestyle interventions. Our combined approach including personalized plans for medication, lifestyle changes, education and community put you on a path for long-term health and wellness. Weight management peptides, for example, can help you jump start weight loss, but when paired with our nutrition and fitness plan specifically designed for menopause, rule meno™ app, and community support, you’ll have the tools you need to maintain the weight loss into the future. 

Regenerative care plans, including peptides, are generally expensive and complex, while finding qualified physicians can be confusing (or risky)! In-person care at clinics is rarely available outside big cities and visits are usually booked out for months. Traditionally, regenerative care has not been accessible to most people. The b-untethered and Telegenixx partnership makes available the tools to take back your body, brain and life!

Why is Lifestyle Change Necessary with Medication?

  • You will likely lose muscle mass without continued exercise. This can leave you feeling and looking soft and untoned. 
  • With the loss of muscle comes the loss of strength. You may find yourself having a harder time lifting suitcases above your head while traveling or just bringing groceries in from the car. Maintaining strength is a key element of positive aging. 
  • Without “stress” or exertion, our bones become less dense and more frail. Unfortunately, this can lead to fractures or breaks upon falls as we age. This type of incident becomes more serious and leads to downtime for recovery. 
  • Medications cannot make up for these losses alone. We need strength training and cardio exercise to keep our bodies functioning at their highest levels as we age.
