Vitamins & Peptide Therapies

Olympia’s Lipo-Mino Mix starts with a special lipotropic fat-burning combination of methionine, inositol, choline, and B12. Each of these ingredients helps the body turn fat into energy and is also a powerful antioxidant. In addition to the Lipotropics blend, Lipo-Mino also contains a mixture of B vitamins which further help to facilitate fat loss and increase energy. The formula is then completed by adding ingredients to reduce appetite, build muscle and promote a healthy immune system.

Proline plays important roles in protein production and structure, metabolism, and arginine synthesis. It may also be helpful for wound healing, antioxidative reactions, and immune responses. It may help maintain muscle tissue after long, vigorous workouts.

Methylcobalamin is an active form of Vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 helps to utilize fats and carbohydrates for energy and make new proteins. Vitamin B12 is important in the maintenance of our metabolism, blood cells, and nerve function. Most people get enough vitamin B12 in their diet, but some need supplementation.

This substance inhibits the neuromuscular synapses in the mimic muscles, acting as enkephalins. It links the enkephalin receptor to nerve cells, thereby modulating the release of acetylcholine in synaptic space. This cellular activity will be translated in vivo in a relaxation of the muscle and a reduction of expression wrinkles.

Argireline, a mimetic of Botox, has been found to be safer than Botox and effective in reducing wrinkles, with efficacies up to 48% upon 4 weeks of twice-daily treatment.

Argireline, a synthetic peptide, which is patterned from the N-terminal end of the protein SNAP-25, can both reduce the degree of existing facial wrinkles and demonstrate effectively against their development.

GHK-Cu is a naturally occurring copper complex that was first identified in human plasma. Copper peptides are small, naturally occurring protein fragments that have a high affinity for copper ions, which are critical to normal body function. It stimulates blood vessel and nerve outgrowth, increases collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycan synthesis, as well as supports the function of dermal fibroblasts. It then plays a significant role in signaling tissue remodeling, which removes damaged/scarred tissue and generates new, healthy tissue. However, these positive effects decline with age because the concentration of GHK-Cu in the body decreases with age.

BPC 157, composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) that is discovered in and isolated from human gastric juice. Experimentally it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments. Also, BPC 157 seems to protect organs and prevent ulcers of the stomach. This peptide is also shown to decrease pain in damaged areas. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears, and damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide. It can also help aid skin burns to heal at a faster rate and increase blood flow to damaged tissues.

CJC 1295 is a synthetically produced peptide that can increase your plasma growth hormone levels. Initially, CJC 1295 was developed to treat diseases and medical conditions for patients who had muscle disorders, diseases, and burn victims. CJC 1295 has drawn many individuals like athletes from around the globe for its incredible benefits and minimal side effects to enhance their performance on the field and in the gym. The primary purpose of CJC-1295 is to boost protein synthesis levels and help fuel the growth of muscle tissues in the body.

Many benefits will be derived by users who are incorporating CJC-1295 to their regimen; among these are:

• Decrease body fat.
• Improve sleep quality.
• Increase cognitive function.
• Quicker recovery times post-injury.
• Increased muscle mass.
• Increase in strength.

  • Improves wound healing and tissue regeneration (skin, hair follicles, bones, stomach, intestinal linings, and liver)
  • Increases collagen and glycosaminoglycans
  • Stimulates the synthesis of decorin
  • Increases angiogenesis, and nerve outgrowth
  • Possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects
  • Increases cellular stemness and the secretion of trophic factors by mesenchymal stem cells [3–6].
  • The Suppression of Fibrinogen Synthesis. Fibrinogen is an excellent predictor of mortality especially in patients with cardiovascular complications. GHK was isolated as a plasma factor that suppressed fibrinogen synthesis in liver tissue.
  • Activation of the Ubiquitin/Proteasome System (UPS). The UPS removes damaged proteins. Higher activities of the UPS appear to retard aging effects.
  • Activation of DNA Repair Genes. DNA damage is promptly repaired in young and healthy cells, however, as we age, DNA damage starts accumulating. Resetting the activity of DNA repair genes can diminish the deleterious effects of aging.
  • Antioxidant Genes. Free radicals and toxic end products of lipid peroxidation are linked to atherosclerosis, cancer, cataracts, diabetes, nephropathy, Alzheimer’s disease, and other severe pathological conditions of aging.
  • Suppression of Insulin and Insulin-Like Genes. The insulin family has been proposed as a negative controller of longevity; higher levels of insulin and insulin-like proteins reduce the lifespan.
  • Tissue Repair by TGF Superfamily. General tissue repair by the TGF superfamily as exemplified by COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).
  • Cancer Controlling Genes. Caspase, growth regulatory, and DNA repair genes are important in cancer suppression.
  • Supports Melanogenesis
  • Tanning
  • Photoprotective
  • Libido enhancement (more of a side effect at a high dose)
  • Metabolic Support: Lipolytic, appetite control, anti-inflammatory, lowers oxidative stress
  • Induces enhanced thermogenic and anorexic responses via MC4R binding, and helps improve glucose and cholesterol metabolism
  • Immune – activates Treg cells and improves Th1/Th17 balance
  • Autoimmune conditions

The fat on the thighs and abdominal area is more difficult to mobilize due to increased alpha-2 adrenergic receptor activity induced by estrogen. Lipolysis can be initiated through adipocyte receptor stimulation (beta-adrenergic) or inhibition (adenosine or alpha-2 adrenergic) or by inhibition of phosphodiesterase. Since many people desire regional thigh and abdominal fat loss, Topical aminophylline abdominal and thigh cream has been introduced as a method of treating cellulite, or dimpled thighs and buttocks.

Cortisol is involved in the distribution and deposition of fat, and its activity is regulated by the activity of 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase. Glycyrrhetinic acid, the active principle of licorice root, blocks 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1, thus reducing the availability of cortisol at the level of adipocytes.

These two products together work as an excellent addition to help with localized fat reduction in those areas where patients are having difficulty losing those last couple of inches.

NAD+ levels steadily fall as we age, leading to a decline in the function of cells and organs. By raising NAD+, NAD+ boosters can have profound effects on the health and survival of mammals. Increases in NAD+ promote cognitive and sensory function, gluconeogenesis in the liver, lipogenesis in adipose tissue, insulin secretion in the pancreas, and insulin sensitivity in muscle. NAD+ also promotes endothelial cell proliferation and protects against cardio- and cerebrovascular disease. NAD regulates immune function and inflammation and, protects against acute injury in the kidney. NAD promotes and extends fertility in both males and females, ostensibly by activation of sirtuins.

TB-500 is a synthetic fraction of the protein thymosin beta-4. The main purpose of this peptide is to promote healing. The healing effects of TB-500 have been observed in tendons, ligaments, muscles, skin, heart, and eyes. T• Up-regulates Actin and forms a ternary complex with actin and profilin.

  • Increased cells in healing.
  • Improves cell migration to the site of the injury
  • Soft tissue repair – tendon, ligament, muscle sports, and athletic injuries.
  • Reduces scar tissue.
  • Significant repair and regenerative properties.
  • Enlarged muscle growth, muscle tone, and muscular stamina.

At NuLife Wellness Center we provide medical facials and chemical peels to target your specific concerns. Medical facials can provide lasting, noticeable results.
