Peptide Therapy

Enhance vitality, boost strength, increase stamina, and more with peptides


What Are Peptides?

Peptides are short chains of amino acids, typically comprising 2-50 amino acids. Amino acids are also the building blocks of proteins, but proteins contain more.

Peptides may be easier for the body to absorb than proteins because they are smaller and more broken down than proteins. They can more easily penetrate the skin and intestines, which helps them to enter the bloodstream more quickly.

Peptide Therapy is an exciting, cutting-edge medical science that uses specific amino acid sequences called “peptides” that, when properly administered, communicate with different parts of the body, potentially enhancing the function of the entire body by binding to the receptors on the cell surface and signaling optimal messages for health improvement.

To date, over 6,000 naturally-occurring peptides have been identified. Because peptides are mostly naturally occurring in the body, they are typically extremely well-tolerated and very safe.

Dr. Henry “Hank” Martin has discovered that peptides work best when administered together in specific combinations that have a synergistic effect on cell function.

What Are BPC 157 Peptides?

What is BPC 157? BPC 157 Peptides are made of 15 Amino Acids and are derived from human gastric juices. A lot of experiments have shown how BPC 157 Peptides can heal different kinds of tissues. These include:

Thus, it’s pretty much safe to say that patients who suffer discomfort from those mentioned above can benefit from BPC 157 healing work as this peptide can increase the blood flow going back to the areas of injuries. It can also protect organs, prevent stomach ulcers, and even heal skin burns.

BPC 157 Peptides or the Gastric Pentadecapeptide BPC 157 have also been found to have a promoting effect when it comes to tendon healing involving:

Thinking About What BPC 157 Peptides Are?

Here’s Everything You Need to Know About BPC 157

Do you know anyone who has been injured because of any sports activity?

Or, have you ever hurt yourself because of sports?

Injuries such as tendon injuries are very common when it comes to any sports event. Well, truth be told because of how strenuous, and physical sports can be (such as soccer, baseball, or hockey); getting injured is inevitable.

Most of the time, these tendon injuries are the result of tearing tendons because of overuse. And let me tell you, tendons healing from injuries can be quite poor and slow in the process.

Previously, a lot of ways have been used to try to heal torn tendons such as using:

But, do you know that it has been found out how the Gastric Pentadecapeptide BPC 157 was seen to have enhanced healing of wounds (such as tendon injuries)?

Today, let’s get to know more about the Gastric Pentadecapeptide BPC 157 and its benefits to the medical field.

What Is CJC 1295 Ipamorelin?

CJC 1295 / Ipamorelin is a combination of 2 peptides. It is a Growth Hormone releasing hormone that stimulates one side of the pituitary gland. It does this in order to produce growth hormones. Ipamorelin mimics ghrelin and binds to the ghrelin receptor in the pituitary gland in the brain. Thus, it also acts on the pituitary gland in order to produce growth hormones. These two peptides combine to act together in order to increase HGH (human growth hormone) produced in the body. The CJC 1295 / Ipamorelin combo is able to achieve this by acting in two different families of receptors.

What Are The Benefits Of CJC 1295 Ipamorelin

Benefits of CJC 1295 & Ipamorelin include but are not limited to:

Increased Bone Density

As we get older, our bones get brittle, that is why injuries are more common.

Strengthens the cardiovascular system Increase in muscle mass

More muscle mass = higher metabolism = less body fat

The ability to burn fat

As we mentioned, an increase in muscle mass allows the body’s resting metabolic rate to be boosted leading to more calories burned throughout the day.

Increased Sex drive

Guys (proverbial guys, that means girls too). Sex is huge. I don’t care what anybody says, it’s a vital part of our health, our mood, everything. Not being able to function properly sexually can really take a toll on your mental well-being

Improved Recovery and Repair from Injuries

Being on a proper bio-identical hormone replacement therapy program leads to an overall improved state of well-being. This adheres to recovery time (soreness) and acute musculoskeletal injuries.

Strengthens Immune System

Personally, what I can notice and I can attest to being on hormone replacement therapy, being on the CJC 1295 Ipamorelin.. I don’t get sick. It is a tremendous benefit when you are trying to attain optimal health and that is achieved by having a strong immune system

Improves cognition and memory function

It is an improved overall benefit to the body, this includes focus and feeling mental clarity and sharpness throughout the day.

Improves Insulin Sensitivity

CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin improve insulin sensitivity thus reducing the body’s triglycerides. High blood sugars are reduced which helps burn more body fat.

What Everybody Ought To Know About DSIP (Delta Sleep-inducing Peptide)

Are you having sleep problems?

Or maybe you know someone who does.

Sleep problems are not new to us, especially to those people suffering from insomnia. But, we all know how these restless nights become quite a hassle.

Sleepless nights lead to a lack of:

Especially when we wake up the next day. But let me tell you, don’t submit to this discomfort. Because today, we’re about to share with you a good fix for your sleepless nights.

Let’s get to know all about the DSIP or the Deep Sleep-Inducing Peptide.

What Is A Delta Sleep-inducing Peptide?

The DSIP or the Delta sleep-inducing Peptide is a somnogeneric nonapeptide that impacts the neuromodulation. It is typically found in the brain and passes by the blood barriers quite quickly. Studies have shown that DSIP and as well as its analogs are classified as peptide neuromodulators.

Studies have also shown that DSIP has exhibited a stress-protective action that helps decrease stress metabolic disorders in humans and animals.

It is believed that the Delta Sleep-Inducing Peptide works in such a way that it modulates the activity of GABAergic gluta and other neuronal systems too.

What Is GHK-Cu Or The Collagen & Aesthetic Peptide?

The GHK-Cu is known to be a peptide, which is a naturally occurring copper complex that has been first identified in human plasma. It has also been found in different areas of the body, such as the saliva and the urine.

Copper peptides are usually small and are naturally occurring protein fragments. They have a high affinity for copper ions. Evidence even suggests that they are critical to normal body functions.

A lot of clinical studies have shown that GHK-Cu has different roles and benefits in the human body, including:

Clinical Evidence has even shown that GHK-Cu also acts as a feedback signal for tissue injury. Also, GHK-Cu is also known to act as a potent protector of tissue and an anti-inflammatory agent, which reduces oxidative damage in tissues.

Overall, GHK-Cu has been discovered to be involved in signaling tissue remodeling. This is through removing damaged/scarred tissue and generating healthy tissue.

Studies have shown that GHK concentration decreases with age because of its concentration in the body, which might cause tissue destruction, inflammation, or cancer.

Facts You Need To Know About The Collagen & Aesthetic Peptide

Skincare is everything.

And we tell you, that is across all ages, whether male or female.

Usually, the common things people would run to so they continue having glowy and healthy skin would be moisturizers or even signing themselves up for a face spa service.

But, did you know that there’s a peptide that could help nourish our skin? Yes, I’m talking about the GHK-Cu peptide.

Let’s get to know more about it, shall we?

Peptide AOD 9604, or commonly known as the fat-burning peptide, has been helping people fight off fat.

This peptide was initially created as a remedy for obesity, that has recently had an increase of fame because of its natural ability to become a slimming solution.

Here’s what it actually does.

This peptide helps you burn fat and helps your body increase its weight loss. For sure, you’re on the road to getting skinny on this one.


SEMAX is an experimental drug that was originally developed back in Russia to prevent and treat circulatory disorders. It has also been identified as a “nootropic” or “cognitive enhancer.” Also known as the Heptapeptide SEMAX (MEHFPGP), it is the analog of ACTH. It has been seen to demonstrate prolonged neuropathic activity.

Historically, it has been used in patients experiencing pathologies connected to brain circulation dysfunction. This has also been suggested in literature because of its effects on carboxypeptidase which may increase physical performance and adaptation capacities in exposure due to high intensity and exercises at high doses. This is a synthetic peptide drug developed based on the molecular structure of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH).

Back in Russia, SEMAX was initially used also to treat strokes and brain damage. This drug has also been reported to have interesting effects on animal models, reducing stress, and enhancing memory performance.


A synthetic form of the adrenocorticotropic hormone is delivered to the body through a SEMAX nasal spray. It works just like a regular human hormone, which counteracts stress brought by external factors from the environment.

Just to give you an idea, an adrenocorticotropic hormone is a kind of hormone that is secreted by the pituitary gland that stimulates the release of cortisol coming from the adrenal gland. It regulates glucose metabolism and maintains blood pressure.

It also primes the brain for action that can reduce behaviors, like procrastination and avoidance. SEMAX can also induce a controlled state of mental stress, which optimizes brain function.

SEMAX works through chemical stimulation on the parts of the brain. These parts include:

This peptide is often prescribed for:

NAD+ IV Therapy

NAD+ IV therapy at Vitality Sciences is one of the most effective ways to take control of your health and fight back against aging. By using natural substances found in your body’s own cells, NAD+ IV therapy can contribute to your overall health by boosting everything from the strength of your immune system to your cardiovascular health.

If you’re ready to get started with NAD+ IV Therapy, contact Cardinal Wellness & Aesthetics today.

What is NAD+?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD+ for short, is an essential regulator of your body’s cells. It controls several functions, including how your cells respond to stress, and like so many other things, NAD+ levels can decrease with age and lead to a decline in cellular health and organ function. Through NAD+ IV therapy, your NAD+ levels can reach optimal levels, contribute to healthier cells, and subsequently result in a healthier body overall.
Optimize functional wellness, age gracefully, and embrace a better healthspan.

“Dr. Martin and staff care like family and at the same time are knowledgeable and at the forefront of wellness care. I came to him for fatigue and wanting to live longer. He has guided me and his staff have supported me toward teaching the goal of good energy, good sleep, better eating habits, balancing me through supplements, and most importantly, teaching me about what and why.”
– Mary C.
“It was good to feel good again! After almost a year of decreased energy, weight gain, and an overall sense of sadness, the hormone therapy Dr. Martin prescribed for me brought me back to feeling normal again. I saw results from workouts and yoga I had not seen in a long time! After only a month or so of hormone therapy, I started sleeping normally again, without waking up in the middle of the night, unable to go back to sleep. My downward spiral stopped and then reversed itself, and the scary path of aging did not seem quite so frightening. Dr. Martin spends quality, unrushed time with me explaining the science behind these treatments. He also provides tons of practical information about nutrition, exercise, and rest. Thank you, Dr. Hank! I am so lucky to have you and your wonderful practice in my life!””
– Rochelle C.
“I had the privilege of shadowing with Dr. Hank a few months ago. It was wonderful to see a doctor take the time to talk to patients and provide a holistic approach to age management, hormonal therapy, & genetic testing. The entire staff at Cardinal is helpful & friendly and the office is beautiful!”
– Avni D.
“My wife and I met with Dr. Martin and Monica back in June 2021. Dr. Martin spoke with us about the health benefits from proper diet and exercise. We decided to follow his advice and the results are amazing. When I started seeing him I weighed 193 lbs and was on two blood pressure meds and a statin to control cholesterol. After about two months I am down to 173 (my wife lost 20lbs as well) and have dropped one blood pressure med and the statin. Also he was able to get my testosterone levels up to where it needs to be. He showed us a whole new world as far as diet. This is a way of eating that we can stick with and maintain our weight and fitness goals. Dr. Martin and staff are very personable and knowledgeable on how to live a healthy lifestyle. He and Monica truly care about our health. The appointments are never rushed and all questions are answered.”

“What a difference a year makes! A year ago in April I was blessed to learn that our family doctor of many years was beginning a new practice focusing on wellness and age management. I had no idea what a difference I would see in my over all health and wellbeing after beginning Hormone Replacement Therapy as well as personalized instruction in nutrition and exercise. The positive difference physically, mentally and emotionally is incredible. I had heard that HRT was the fountain of youth and I can now testify to that. I feel better, have more energy and know that the steps I am taking through Dr. Martin’s instruction has been and will continue to be life changing for me. Dr. Martin truly cares about my health and takes time to answer all my questions patiently and thoroughly which in this day and age is rare. He is truly a blessing to not only me but my husband as well and we are so grateful to have him by our side through this season in our lives.”
