Peptides are widely used today for cell and tissue repair following an injury or trauma. These peptides are made of amino acids produced naturally in the body. Biologically, peptides serve various essential functions related to homeostasis of tissue repair, rapid post-injury recovery, and enhanced brain functioning.
Peptides have shown their potential in balancing the growth hormone levels and, more interestingly, increasing the sexual desire in both males and females. In the USA alone, there are more than 30 million females and 40 million males suffering from low libido.
Natural Peptides Can Increase Libido in Men and Women
A new peptide named PT-141 is a breakthrough in the treatment of sexual problems like erectile dysfunction in men and low libido in women. This peptide stimulates the part in the brain associated with sexual arousal and erection. Surprisingly, PT-141 peptide stimulates sexual desire (libido) in both men and women, providing a safe and natural solution to the most prominent sexual problems nowadays.
Is There a Drug to Increase Sexual Desire in Females?
Females, especially over 40, experience a decreased libido without any apparent cause, which can lead to anxiety and depression. Research shows that PT-141 can prove to be beneficial in treating feminine sexual dysfunctions more effectively than any other treatment to date. Female subjects taking this peptide not only confirmed increase desire to have sex but also experienced better orgasms as well as increased satisfaction.
On the other side, when we compare other treatments like Viagra, peptide PT-141 shows fewer side effects and is safe since it does not involve the cardiovascular system. Instead, it stimulates the brain to promote signals associated with sexual desire and arousal in both men and women.
Sexual Dysfunction Associated With the Use of Serotonin
Sexual dysfunction is a significant complaint of men and women on an antidepressant regimen. Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors or SSRI medication comes with a side effect of low libido and sexual dysfunction. One solution is Tadalafil.
Tadalafil (brand name Cialis) is used for managing erectile dysfunction in men and low libido in women after chronic use of SSRIs. A study was conducted on men suffering from SSRI induced erectile dysfunction. The subjects using Tadalafil, in addition to their SSRI, showed a noticeable increase in erection quality and erection time. More importantly, Tadalafil also showed increased libido in women complaining about sexual dysfunction as a side effect of SSRI medication.
When the research was conducted on women, adding Tadalafil with their regular SSRI medication, they experienced a reversal in sexual dysfunction and gradual recovery of better orgasms and better sexual experience.
