Gut Health Peptides

When our bodies run smooth, we tend to feel great and not think of any potential issues. Once things are not working as systematically, we often internalize our stresses and feel it in our “gut”.

Our “gut” is filled with a series of organs — mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and colon, all of which work to transform the food we eat into the nutrients our bodies need in which to thrive and survive. When things are wrong, we often feel symptoms including an upset stomach, constipation, heartburn or gas. These are commonly referred to as “gut reactions” and they can be painful, disruptive, and even, embarrassing.

Common gut issues are not segregated to any certain age, in fact, GI doctors today are reporting that they are frequently seeing teenagers and our youth as young as toddlers.

Known as a “stable gastric pentadecapeptide”, primarily because it is stable in human gastric juice, BPC-157 or Body Protection Compound, can cause an anabolic healing effect in both the upper and lower GI tract, it has an anti-ulcer effect, and produces a therapeutic effect on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), with no side effects.

As demonstrated in many research studies, BPC-157 also accelerates wound healing, and, via interaction with the Nitric Oxide (NO) system, causes protection of endothelial tissue and an “angiogenic” (blood vessel building) wound healing effect. This occurs even in severely impaired conditions, such as in advanced and poorly controlled irritable bowel disease, in which it stimulates expression of genes responsible for cytokine and growth factor generation and also extracellular matrix (collagen) formation, along with intestinal anastomosis healing, reversal of short bowel syndrome and fistula healing – all of which can extremely frustrating issues in people who have gut pain, constipation, diarrhea and bowel inflammation.

Gut Health Key Facts

  • When the microbes in your gut are out of balance, your body can’t absorb nutrients the way it should. The result of this is inflammation, the root of almost every chronic disease.
  • Gut health and gut bacteria are the most overlooked elements of hormonal balance (includes menopause, thyroid issues, estrogen excess).
  • The microbiome is now considered an endocrine organ, some consider it even more powerful than the other endocrine glands – it controls the production and inhibits or supports hormonal balance.
  • It is difficult to heal your body without fixing the gut microbiome.
  • There is a direct correlation between your brain and your gut. Brain-Gut Axis.
  • The key to balanced hormones is a healthy gut with a wide range of bacterial microflora.

“One dose of broad spectrum antibiotics can significantly disrupt the microbiome(good bacteria) and take months to once again reestablish the good bacteria.”~ Dr. Derrick DeSilva

Routine Blood Work

Blood tests are a standard part of routine and preventive healthcare. Before beginning any therapy program, a routine lab work up is conducted to identify any blood disorders or diseases diseases, such as anemia, issues with clotting, inflammation, infection, or immune system disorders. In addition, checking hormone levels and your IGF-1 levels are important to establish a baseline and provide the physician with clinical levels that will help to establish the correct programs, drugs and other factors to help meet your goals.


Just as adults suffer from stress, teens and young adults can experience emotional turmoil that can manifest into symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal symptoms. It can also make an existing gastrointestinal disorder worse. The sensory nerves in the gastrointestinal system are connected to sensory nerves in the brain. When things aren’t going right mentally, it can affect the physical state, as well.

Teens are under a lot of stress these days – from school, friends, class schedules, and safety concerns. In addition, the growing usage of social media is also often recognized as contributor to stress and anxiety. Gone are the days when kids could leave social stress and anxiety when they left school. Now it follows them everywhere.
