When it comes to nutrition and how the body works, it’s amazing how little we know and understand about many of the body’s functions. One mystery that has begun to unravel its secrets to us is the peptide. What are peptides and can they really help you get better, more restful sleep?
What is a Peptide?
A peptide is a small string of amino acids that are found in certain foods as well as some specifically formulated medications.
These peptides can interact with the proteins in the human body to help regulate and maintain many of the body’s biological functions. Therapeutically, their use can make it easier for the body to absorb them than similarly acting proteins because they are smaller and easier for the body to break down.
Once broken down into its essential elements, they can then be easily absorbed through the skin, intestines, and stomach to be used quickly throughout the body.
While not quickly available, peptides can be naturally found in many foods such as:
- Eggs and chicken
- Fish and shellfish
- Certain grains like soy, what, oats, and flaxseed
- Beans and lentils
In recent years, and as research and experimentation has advanced the science behind peptide therapy, patients have been able to find relief from a wide variety of issues with their therapeutic use. Expert diagnosis and management by our medical team helps to ensure that all of our patients can accomplish their goals quickly and efficiently.

How Peptides Help With Sleep
Most people will report experiencing some form of sleeplessness throughout their lives. For many of us, this can become a recurring malady. While there are many effective strategies for addressing external factors that may be causing insomnia, few address some of the biological causes. Even some external factors can cause internal problems that can make getting to and enjoying sleep difficult.
Not getting enough sleep is always a bad thing. It will eventually adversely affect many of your body’s functions, chief among them, mental health issues like depression and anxiety. Sleeplessness can even eventually make it so that you will be too tired to exercise, which could lead to unhealthy weight gain, higher blood pressure and spikes in other problems.
Think about it, if you are sleepy during the day, it’s going to affect your ability to concentrate on all levels including at home, on the road and at work. As if it weren’t bad enough, the list of health issues from poor sleeping habits isn’t just limited to this.
How do peptides help with sleep? Some peptides can interact with a chemical called serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter found in the brain that releases chemicals as signals to your brain and body it’s time to sleep. Poor regulation of serotonin can absolutely affect a person’s ability to sleep restfully.
Sermorelin and CJC1295 are both known for their effectiveness as sleep-promoting peptides. Unlike many other medical interventions, peptide therapy is non-habit forming and very safe when used under a doctor’s supervision. Because they do not cause drowsiness or fatigue when administered, they’re safe to be taken any time of day and are not habit-forming.
At HealthGAINS, we often find patients that are experiencing sleeplessness also suffer from other issues, so having a customized plan that is built around a patient’s individual goals has proven to be one of the most effective methods of combating insomnia.
