As adults grow old, their bodies undergo several unwanted changes that begin to uproot their comfortable way of life. Decreased muscle mass and sexual health are usually the biggest issues aging adults face as they get older, but other issues can become byproducts of the aging process. Increased body fat is one of the most common changes that adults typically experience, which can lead to low morale, depression, and other psychological issues that can affect your mental health.

The aging process is contingent on a few factors occurring in the human body most of the time. Usually, declining human growth hormone (HGH) and low testosterone levels are the major causes of accelerated aging and deterioration. Luckily, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can correct those issues with the proper medication, diet, and exercise.

There are many different kinds of HRT, but one of the most common that patients have found to be effective is peptide therapy. By utilizing peptides in their hormone replacement therapy, patients can also increase lean muscle growth by burning fat and decreasing the amount of fatty tissue in the body. In addition, peptide therapy can even help stimulate sexual desire and enhance sexual performance. For that reason, people struggling with age-related life changes have begun to consider peptide therapy as a possible form of treatment to help restore and optimize their overall health and lifestyle.

However, suppose you’re a relatively healthy aging adult simply looking for a peptide therapy option to help you shed a few pounds. In that case, only one peptide compound is considered the most effective treatment option for weight loss: AOD-9604.

Peptide AOD-9604 is a modified chain of amino acids designed to prompt the pituitary gland into speeding up your metabolism to help you burn more body fat. Combined with diet and exercise, AOD-9604 can provide several health benefits and help patients achieve their weight loss goals in a shorter time. If you’re considering peptide therapy to help with weight loss, then AOD-9604 may be the perfect peptide to incorporate into your treatment.

How Does AOD-9604 Peptide Therapy Work?

There are two biological processes that regulate how the body processes fatty acids: lipolysis and lipogenesis. During the process of lipolysis, fats and lipids are broken down into glycerol and fatty acids through the hydrolyzation of triglycerides. As that occurs, the metabolic process of lipogenesis is also forming fats and increasing those same triglycerides to store more fat. When we produce more triglycerides to house fat, our bodies expand, leading to weight gain.

The AOD-9604 peptide focuses on the body areas with abnormally high levels of fat by stimulating lipolysis and inhibiting lipogenesis–leading to accelerated fat burning as it also prevents increased fat and triglyceride production.

What Are the Benefits of AOD-9604?

There are several benefits to utilizing an AOD-9604 injection in peptide therapy. Since the peptide is designed to focus on weight loss, AOD-9604 can provide patients with various metabolic benefits, including:

  • Cartilage repair
  • Metabolism regulation
  • Enhanced muscle growth
  • Insulin and blood sugar management
  • Reduced body fat

Patients using AOD-9604 have also been found to lose five times the amount of body fat compared to the average person. Aside from the weight loss, AOD-9604 can also help patients maintain a healthier blood glucose level than some healthy adults without the peptide. In addition, AOD-9604 has been shown to prevent certain diseases like osteoporosis and skin diseases like psoriasis and acne.

How Safe Is AOD-9604?

AOD-9604 is FDA approved under the GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) program, which designates food additives as safe under the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act.

Although AOD-9604 is considered completely safe and has no health risks associated with its use, there are some potential side effects. Patients taking AOD-9604 have reported various issues after taking AOD-9604 including:

  • Upset stomach
  • Headaches
  • Swelling, redness, or pain at the injection site

As with any medication, AOD-9604 may produce other negative side effects when mixed with other medicines and injections. Make sure to discuss the use of any other medications you may be taking and other potential side effects with your doctor before using AOD-9604 for peptide treatment.

Clinical Researches

In clinical studies, AOD-9604 has been shown to reduce body fat in patients suffering from obesity.

During the 90s, researchers from Monash University in Australia found that growth hormone (GH) was responsible for controlling the effects of AOD-9604. In clinical trials, the overall goal of the research was to find an anti-obesity drug that could burn fats without promoting muscle growth. In doing so, researchers found that AOD-9604 had the ability to:

  • Decrease the development of new fat
  • Regulate the body’s metabolism
  • Stimulate the release of fats from fat cells
  • Help treat osteoarthritis and bone repair

In other clinical trials, patients were shown to experience less fatigue and had more endurance to exercise. Patients suffering from obesity also reported feeling less hungry and were found to eat less when using AOD-9604.

How do I use AOD-9604?

Patients typically have two options when administering AOD-9604 during their treatment plan. They can choose to take it orally by digesting a tablet or administering a subcutaneous injection to an area with the fattiest tissue, such as the inner side of the thigh. Currently, subcutaneous injections are the most effective way to introduce AOD-9604 into your bloodstream so your body can easily break down the peptide.

You should inject the peptide 30 minutes before breakfast to give AOD-9604 enough time throughout the day to fully metabolize in your system and produce the best results. In some cases, patients may also choose to administer injections periodically throughout the day. However, you should always discuss the potential side effects and risks with your physician before increasing the frequency of your injections.

When Will I See Results?

Every person is different, so AOD-9604 results will vary depending on the case. Several factors may affect how fast you attain results, including:

  • The current status of any pre-existing medical conditions
  • Age
  • Family history
  • Any risks of disease

However, most patients will typically notice physical improvements within 12 weeks of treatment.
