Weight Loss

Using hormone therapy to assist with weight loss, and perhaps more importantly, improving how your body deals with weight loss and metabolism, can do a lot for your health. Hormones have such an effect on the body’s physical, emotional, and mental health. They also play a huge role in the management of mood, appetite, and weight. In an ideal situation, the body would produce the proper amounts of hormones for all its needs. However, situations are rarely ideal.

As a result, many people struggling with hormonal imbalances will likely see excess weight gain or have difficulty losing weight and keeping it off. When your body’s hormones are out of balance, it could impact your weight in many ways. From slowing down your metabolism to affecting how well your body processes or eliminates fat, there are so many different potential outcomes. Regardless of what’s going on, though, there is a solution out there.

Finding the Problem

Because the body has so many different hormones that are involved in the area of weight loss, it may initially prove to be difficult to figure out exactly what is going on. Fortunately, you can do some research on your own and work with your doctor to figure out exactly which hormones are missing or not working correctly so that you can find the most effective solution. Typically, hormonal issues related to weight and weight loss are from the hormones listed below.

Once you’ve done your homework, it’s important to talk to your doctor and learn how to identify which hormones you may be missing. Only then will you be able to get the right solution for hormone replacement therapy. Here are the most common choices for weight issues, including the types of issues they resolve:

MOTS-C Peptide

This peptide contains 16 amino acids and has been discovered to assist in regulating the metabolic functions of the body. It helps turn glucose into energy that the body can use and can assist with regulating blood sugar. It appears to target skeletal muscles and has even been called an exercise-mimetic, which essentially means that it imitates the effects of exercise on the body.

AMPK, also known as AMP-activated protein kinase, is known as the main switch for the body’s metabolism regulation, as well as for regulation of the metabolism of lipids and glucose. The MOTS-C peptide has shown to activate the pathway for this hormone, which is how it helps with metabolism and weight loss.

AOD 9604

Known as the fat-burning peptide, this is a modified form of Growth Hormone that includes several benefits for improved metabolism, fat reduction, and other weight-related hormonal issues. This peptide stimulates the pituitary gland and activates fat burning in the body, mimicking natural growth hormone activity so that the body doesn’t get confused. It can assist with cartilage repair and other regenerative efforts, and especially when you combine it with other peptides like BPC 157.

Amlexanox and TTA

These peptides are designed to assist with things like inhibiting inflammation in the body, helping to improve weight loss and insulin sensitivity. This substance works by helping to boost the cells’ ability to burn fat and disrupting the feedback loop of weight gain that often comes from hormone imbalances and improper metabolism and fat burning regulation. Combining Amlexanox with TTA helps decrease hunger, burn fat, and more. It even has antioxidant and immune-supporting properties.


This is a Growth Hormone releasing hormone, or GHRH, that has 30 different amino acids and is designed to help increase the production of growth hormone in the body. The benefit of this alternative peptide is that it can improve this without increasing cortisol or other negative elements of weight gain. It will help improve muscle growth and bone density through protein synthesis and offers a host of other benefits like promoting deep sleep, increasing cell regeneration and repair, collagen production, and more. This substance has a lot to offer the body in many areas, but its assistance with overall weight support is the most commonly-sought feature.


Another GHRH peptide, this is one of the most effective options available today to assist with the production of HGH. Plus, it also offers other improvements and benefits for your health. It can help increase IGF-1 for insulin support, reduce triglycerides associated with high cholesterol, and even improve cognition in older adults, according to the studies that have been done. For the sake of weight loss, tesamorelin appears to offer the benefit of reduced abdominal fat. Of course, this peptide only seems to offer that benefit so long as you are on the therapy, as many reported weight increases or stagnation in loss after discontinuing the use of this hormone therapy.

5-Amino 1MQ

This substance is capable of helping reduce the production of NNMT, an enzyme that is notorious for slowing down the metabolic processes in the body. The use of 5-amino 1MQ can provide the body with several benefits, including assistance with metabolic conditions, prevention of fat accumulation, regulation of fat cell energy, and more. All of these processes working together will create the weight loss benefits from hormone therapy that people seek. If hormone issues related to metabolism, fat storage, or energy regulation are present, this supplemental therapy is generally a good choice.

Is Weight Loss Hormone Therapy Right for You?

There are a lot of factors that go into finding the right solutions for your weight struggles. However, if you can prove that the issues are related to hormone regulation, supplemental hormone therapy may be the ideal solution. Many of the substances here can provide numerous benefits to your metabolism and the body’s ability to burn fat and reduce the amount of stored fat it currently holds. First, of course, you have to figure out which hormones are missing so that you can get the right balance.

Working with our professionals will allow you to get a much better idea of your options and which route will be ideal to assist with your hormonal issues related to weight loss.
