At Affirm Health Center, we are pleased to offer new Accelerated Fitness Programs that utilize peptides to enhance weight loss muscle building. We offer two different programs depending on your desired results.

Long-Term Fitness Program

Our long-term fitness program is a 3-month commitment and uses AOD-9604 peptide in conjunction with exercise and nutritional guidance to accelerate weight loss, specifically fat loss.

Short-Term Fitness Program

The shorter-term program is a 1-month commitment and uses MOTS-c peptide in conjunction with exercise and nutritional guidance to accelerate weight loss, specifically fat loss. MOTS-c are used for this program as they have quicker results than AOD-9604.


What is AOD-9604 Peptide?

AOD 9604 is a modified fragment of human growth hormone (HGH). It is an excellent peptide for weight loss due to its stimulatory effects on the pituitary gland. This stimulation speeds up metabolism for better calorie burning and fat burning. Using AOD 9604, people can lose weight faster than is possible with diet and exercise alone.

Is it Safe for Anyone to Use AOD-9604 Peptide for Weight Loss?

We are committed to helping our patients lose weight quickly and safely. It is important to talk with your provider about medications or supplements you are taking so we can develop the best dosing for your needs. Although AOD 9604 is a derivative of human growth hormone, it works without the typical adverse side effects of that chemical and is safe.

How is AOD-9604 Peptide Used to Enhance Weight Loss and Build Muscle?

To achieve better weight loss results, AOD 9604 may be injected subcutaneously each morning, ideally on an empty stomach. This delivery method enables the peptide to enter the bloodstream quickly, where it triggers the release of fat from enlarged fat cells. In addition to increasing the metabolism of fat, this peptide also reduces the accumulation of new fat.

What Are the Side Effects of AOD-9604?

AOD 9604 was discovered as researchers looked for an alternative to HGH growth hormones. This peptide achieves similar responses in the body without targeting blood sugar levels. Therefore, patients do not experience the same cravings or cortisol increase they would with an HGH weight loss program. There are no known health risks associated with AOD 9604 injections. The most common side effects include redness, swelling, and mild discomfort at the injection site. There is a slight risk for headache or upset stomach. For those who are interested in a supplement to their diet and exercise program, AOD 9604 is an excellent option.

What is MOTS-c Peptide?

MOTS-c is a mitochondrial-derived peptide described as a bioactive 16 amino acid peptide based on clinical findings. This peptide is detected in circulation so is classified as a mitochondrial or metabolic hormone. It primarily targets fat and skeletal muscle, making it an ideal inclusion in our accelerated fitness program.

What Are the Benefits of MOTS-c Peptide?

Research performed by Pinchas Cohen and other scientists at the Leonard Davis School of Gerontology at the University of Southern California points to MOTS-c as a beneficial factor in reducing diabetes and obesity while also enhancing physical performance and longevity. Why? Because this peptide assists proper mitochondrial function and the mitochondria are the energy center of every cell in the body. Cohen’s research proposed that MOTS-c is exercise-mimetic, meaning that the body thinks it is exercising even when it is not.
Benefits of MOTS-c peptide include:

  • Regulates mitochondrial energy
  • Promotes the metabolism of fatty acid in the liver
  • Promotes metabolic homeostasis
  • Improves glucose regulation
  • Aids in the resistance of metabolic stress
  • Protects against insulin resistance
  • Promotes weight loss
  • Improves physical performance

How Does MOTS-c Peptide Help Your Metabolism?

Functional metabolism is fueled by adequate glucose and insulin regulation, optimal mitochondrial functioning, and proper energy usage. Insulin production regulates whether or not the body uses glucose as energy or stores it as fat. Research indicates that the mitochondria are actively involved in metabolic homeostasis at the cellular level. MOTS-c works to reduce insulin resistance, helping the body use carbohydrates more efficiently.

How Long Will it Take to See MOTS-c peptide Results?

Every person responds to MOTS-c peptide treatment uniquely. Your provider may be able to estimate a time frame during which you may begin to see results after consulting with you about your lifestyle and medical history. Because peptide therapy is used in conjunction with lifestyle and diet changes, we typically expect patients to notice a difference in their shape or weight between 4 weeks to 3 months of beginning their program.

What Are the Side Effects of MOTS-c Peptide?

Being a peptide derived from the mitochondria, MOTS-c works to restore homeostasis with no side effects. During your consultation, your provider will briefly review your medical history, goals, and current medications and supplements to ensure your accelerated fitness program is developed safely and successfully.
