Peptide Injections: Jennifer Aniston’s Go-To Anti-aging Treatment


If you’ve ever wondered the secret to Jennifer Aniston’s perpetually perfect hairand complexion, you’re in luck: The 54-year-old just revealed that peptide injections, also known as peptide therapy, are largely to thank for her eternally youthful glow.

Of course, the well known star is well aware that there’s no actual fountain of youth, which she reiterated in an interview with Glamour last September. “Two things are inevitable,” the LolaVie founder said. “The first, aging. The second, there’s always going to be critics. For me, it’s more of the question of how do I take the best care of myself, physically and mentally? We can still thrive when we’re older, and that’s thanks to all the advancements in health, nutrition, technology, and science.”

So What Exactly are Peptides?

Peptides are molecules that contains up to about 50 amino acids. There are over 7000 naturally occurring peptides in our body.

Every peptide has a function in signaling a particular function within a cell. They were first discovered in 1920 with the first commercially available peptide being insulin discovered in 1923.

Since this time many advances in understanding peptides have occurred. We now understand that there are a large number of these molecules circulating in the body at all times.

One of the best things about peptides is that they are very safe.

When it comes to side effects they have a minimal to none. They are pluripotent which means that most peptides have more than just one action.

In other words a repair peptide such as BPC-157 may have tremendous repair benefits to tendons and ligaments but it also has been shown to help chronic GI issues such as irritable bowel and leaky gut.

The recent craze of Semaglutide( Ozempic) as a perfect example of the multiple benefits of one peptide. This peptide was initially being studied for chronic neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson's but while it was being studied it was noted that the study subjects were having better glucose control as well as weight loss...well the rest is history. The drug companies ran with that because the market for weight loss and diabetes is huge.

Yet the benefits for cognition and neurodegenerative disease with these GLP1 agonists ( ie: semaglutide) still exists. So not only can it help with weight loss and glucose regulation it is also seen as a longevity peptide that aides in preventing cognitive decline and other neurodegenerative disorders combined with a healthy lifestyle.

Peptides play a crucial role in cell signaling and assist in overall cellular functioning.The field of peptide research is growing by leaps and bounds due to the increasing need for new and novel methods for many diseases we are seeing now in epidemic proportions.

The peptide research is showing measurable, sustainable outcomes for diseases that up until now have been managed by symptom control at best.

Peptides are best to obtain from a reputable compounding pharmacy with a prescription so you can be certain of the purity and efficacy of the product in addition to working with a qualified and educated practitioner who understands the nuances of using peptides and an understanding of cellular mechanisms.

There are several categories of peptides from tissue repair, weight loss, cognitive health, increasing levels of growth hormone, immune system modulation, mood and neurotransmitter balancing and more.

Of course peptides are only one piece of the picture.

Balancing hormones, optimizing sleep, managing stress, proper nutrition and regular exercise are all part of a successful age management program.
