After 2 years of prolifically covering therapeutic peptides for every health benefit in existence, I’ve finally started compiling them into collections for people who want to achieve certain health goals.
…whatever problem you can think of, a peptide exists for the sole purpose of solving it.
I don’t want to say I’ve covered 100% of the peptides worth using as something new will always appear in the Golden Age of biohacking.
But I want to come full circle and wrap up this series (for now) with the peptides I am using nearly every day.
Because only a few of them are worthwhile for achieving fully optimized health.
So without further ado, here they are!
The Peptide Stack Jay Campbell Cannot Live Without
Earlier this year, I sent out several emails to my private subscribers stating I will no longer answer questions for free from the general public.
The ONLY way to get direct 1-on-1 feedback from me for enhancing your healthspan and lifespan will be through one of my PAID premium groups.
However, my peptide stack is the one inquiry that repeatedly pops up over the past 2 years.
And since my stance on a lot of the peptides I’ve written about has changed since I first wrote about them, I am long overdue for a present-day update.
Here’s exactly what I’m taking, why I’m taking them, and how I take them.
Peptide #1: Melanotan 1
As I explained in M1’s signature article and wrote about further in my “God Stack” of agents, the TRUE purpose of this peptide is to expand consciousness and elevate your vibration.
Nothing beats M1 for keeping yourself in a powerful state of calm and stillness.
And the primary mechanism through which this happens involves the increased production of a natural pigment called melanin that protects your body from harmful ultraviolet rays:
“Melanin in the skin serves mainly to protect cellular DNA from ultraviolet radiation (UVR)-induced DNA damage. It has a broad absorption spectrum ranging from UV into visible light up to 700 nm. It typically forms supranuclear caps absorbing about 50%–75% of UVR and thus acts as a natural shield against DNA-damage and photoaging”
But in case you’ve forgotten, melanin is primarily what dictates your skin color:
“Melanin is synthesized in a multistep biochemical pathway within specialized cell types in human skin called melanocytes situated in the epidermis.
UV (ultraviolet) light causes an increase in melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) receptor activity on cutaneous melanocytes [MC1R, i.e. melanocortin 1 receptor] that results in an increase of eumelanin within the epidermal melanocytes.
Melanotan is a synthetic analogue of α-MSH with potent melanogenic activity in animals and humans”
Most notably, M1 can stimulate the production of melanin WITHOUT the damage associated with excess exposure to UV light and protect skin from solar radiation (and can safely be combined with sunlight).
And it is far more selective for MC1R compared to Melanotan 2, which I no longer use due to its out-of-control skin-tanning properties and unfavorable side effect profile.
Due to its melanin-increasing property, M1 therefore improves your cells’ ability to absorb light.
This is a new mode of action I did not previously consider for M1’s connection to spiritual evolution.
The legitimate science behind this hypothesis is still very much esoteric yet is quickly picking up steam:
However, the premise has been alive and well since the 1970s when a Scientific American article published by Richard J. Wurtman strongly argued for the use of light as a way to treat disease.
More specifically, the emerging field of “light medicine” was first thoroughly covered in a 1990 book called “Light: Medicine Of The Future” by Dr. Jacob Liberman.
The quote from the book provided below, in particular, stands out to me:
“Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, Nobel Prize winner and the discoverer of vitamin C, has recognized how profoundly light and color affect us. From his work he concluded that ‘all the energy which we take into our bodies is derived from the sun.’
…Digestion and assimilation by animals and humans are concerned with breaking down, transferring, storing, and utilizing this light-created energy.
…many enzymes and hormones involved in processing this energy are colored and very sensitive to light. As a matter of fact, when they are stimulated by selected colors of light, these enzymes and hormones frequently undergo molecular changes that alter their original colors. These light-induced changes significantly affect the power of these enzymes and hormones to cause dynamic reactions within the body”
It also demonstrates that the apparent color of something might be a strong indicator of its molecular structure.
Szent-Gyorgyi is saying that light striking the body can literally alter the basic biological functions involved in processing the body’s fuel, which powers our lives.“
And it wasn’t just one whack-a-doodle scientist who reached a similar conclusion:
“Similar conclusions were reached by Martinek and Berezin in 1979. They found that light and color can play a remarkable role in how effectively certain enzyme systems regulate biological activity within the body.
Specifically, they found that (a) some colors of light can stimulate certain bodily enzymes to be 500% more effective; and (b) some colors can increase the rate of enzymatic reactions, activate or deactivate certain enzymes, and affect the movement of substances across cell membranes.
These findings seem to place light in a very powerful position as a regulator of many biological functions within the body.”
Makes sense when you consider that we are all fundamentally beings of light!
This is further expanded upon in the newly published book titled “Light Medicine: A New Paradigm” by Dr. Ana Mihalcea.
I would say it is ESSENTIAL reading for anybody who seeks to achieve a highly advanced level of consciousness, but one short quote about peptides is definitely inspiring:
“Peptide therapy is an integral part of a regenerative Light Medicine approach. Once a cell is nutritionally optimized, it can be given informational peptides that allow regeneration and rejuvenation of tissues to occur.
Age reversal, optimized organ function, and healthy longevity can be achieved in using peptides. As we previously discussed, peptides also act as electron donors and therefore light givers. When used appropriately, they have no significant side effects, as these are substances that the body makes and is familiar with.”
If nothing else, you should take away the following message from what we’re continuing to learn about M1…
While we are on the cutting edge of integrative holistic medicine and several decades ahead of traditional allopathic medicine, the ultimate way of healing is through light.
Realize that the observer is the creator, and you create your reality through your thoughts.
And the more light you have in your body, the more you are going to be able to improve your cellular health and slow down aging.
HOW I USE MELANOTAN 1: 500 mcg injected subcutaneously 3 times a week, with the doses evenly spaced out within the week.
Peptide #2: Thymosin Alpha-1
Thymosin Alpha-1 (TA1) has to be my #1 peptide for treating any kind of illness right away.
It is followed up closely by vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) as my go-to solution for keeping my immune system fully protected against disease.
This is one of the very few peptides I carry on my person wherever I go… especially since I’m often traveling around the world.
I pre-load the syringes with my desired dose of TA-1 and the other peptides, add in 1-2 ice packs in the cooler’s outermost component to keep the peptides at the right temperature, and it’s off to the races.
Although I am a being of light, I am no stranger to the reality that I am getting older and thus it is more likely I can get sick and start feeling run down.
Just recently, I ended up using TA-1 in a situation where I came back from Mexico with my wife Monica and we felt really sick.
We just wrapped up filming with The Dream Body Clinic in Puerto Vallarta… we felt fine the entire trip, so we knew with 100% we got a nasty cold virus from someone (or somewhere) on the return flight home.
All we had to do was inject TA-1 once a day until we felt better, and with its fast-acting nature we were back to our normal selves in no time at all.
HOW I USE THYMOSIN ALPHA-1: 1.5 mg injected subcutaneously once per day if traveling, once per day if recovering from an illness, and every-other-day in normal circumstances (preferably during days where you are training and eating)
Peptides #3-4: BPC-157 & TB-500
BPC-157 and TB-500 overlap with Thymosin Alpha-1 in that they can be used for immunity, but where they really shine is their ability to accelerate recovery and repair from numerous types of wounds and injuries.
Both peptides are very similar in many ways:
- Promote the formation of new blood vessels (i.e. angiogenesis)
- Stimulate production of growth factors (albeit different ones)
- Possess anti-inflammatory properties
- Rapidly increase the rate at which your body naturally heals itself
- Can be used synergistically with one another
The only notable difference worth highlighting is that BPC-157 is superior for gastrointestinal health while TB-500 is the better choice for treating muscle injuries. (Although never forget, Metformin is the BE ALL END ALL agent to heal a pathogenic microbiome. If most people (and their Doctors) understood this, combined with living an insulin controlled lifestyle there would be far less diagnosis of ‘auto immune’ disorders
Outside of this point, I do not like to get lost in the minutiae and almost every experiential-based healing protocol using peptides will employ both BPC-157 and TB-500.
I want to showcase just how powerful these two peptides are with a story that happened to me recently…
I was attending an Internet Marketing mastermind in the mountains of Utah, very isolated and far removed from any kind of medical facility.
This was a “big boy” event where the attendees were high level folks….
Anyhow… one of the attendees (we’ll call him “Bob”) was getting in a workout with battle ropes during the Thursday afternoon.
While he was exercising, a dog ran up underneath Bob and his hand got caught in-between the ropes.
The tangle-up immediately gashed his hand wide open — it was the type of injury that needed a butterfly suture and 4-5 stitches in the middle of Bob’s hand ASAP.
I treated his hand on Thursday evening with a local injection of BPC-157 and TB-500 that were pre-mixed in the same vial.
After additional injections on Friday night and Saturday night, Bob woke up on Sunday morning to find his hand almost completely healed.
All of the other attendees — who know absolutely nothing about peptides — were mesmerized at what they witness and couldn’t believe their eyes.
If you are reading this article right now, just know you are so laughably far ahead of the world.
People in the know have been using these two peptides for the past 20 years and the “sick care” system at large doesn’t even know they exist.
You/We are literally aliens to most individuals living in the 3rd dimension when you understand we have near mastery over these healing modalities..
The motto of the story with this:
Never leave home without BPC-157 and TB-500, and always travel with them because you never know when you’re going to get traumatically injured.
HOW I USE BPC-157 & TB-500:
- Only when you or other people get seriously hurt
- 200-750 mcg of BPC-157 injected locally at the site of injury, intramuscularly or subcutaneously, once at morning and once at night.
- 2.5-3.0 mg of TB-500 injected locally at the site of injury, intramuscularly or subcutaneously, once a day in the morning or at night (but at the same time as your BPC-157 injection)
- Continue this protocol for a maximum of 12 weeks or until the injury is 100% healed
Peptide #5: Tesofensine
Tesofensine isn’t structurally a peptide, but it is so ridiculously good it would be a crime to leave it out of this list.
After nearly 8 months of using this all-in-one fat loss drug daily since February 2022, I can report it checks off a LONG list of sorely-needed outcomes that many weight loss compounds have failed to achieve:
- Massively stimulates BDNF production for increased cognition
- Increases your basal metabolic rate
- Reduces the physical need of hunger AND your mental cravings
- Singlehandedly leads to superior yet sustained weight loss and fat loss in human clinical trials when compared to its competitors
- Optimizes your blood lab numbers for cholesterol and insulin
- Enhances mood and well-being in the morning
- Can stop using it cold turkey without any side effects forever
- Comes in the form of an oral once-a-day tablet
All in all, Tesofensine is a radical body composition changer no dieter should ever be without.
I do have two small updates to provide you with since I originally wrote about Tesofensine…
First, there are a small number of women who have told me they cannot sleep when they use Tesofensine.
I can’t know for sure if this is confounded by other drugs they may or may not be taking, but these women have stated they feel a bit “too” amazing and motivated, and for too long.
Second, you tend not to see the best results from Tesofensine until AT LEAST 4-5 months of consistent daily use.
I wanted to bring this up because I’ve gotten a couple of angry emails saying “Tesofensine is too expensive and it doesn’t work.”
This is in sharp contrast to the +20 testimonials from people who have stuck with it for more than 3 months without faltering.
Just some food for thought if you feel like quitting after using a month’s supply of Tesofensine and not getting the results you want.
HOW I USE TESOFENSINE: One 0.5 mg tablet immediately morning while in a fasted state, continue this every day until your fat loss cycle is complete (although it can produce results 6 months into use)
Peptide #6: Semaglutide
I was first introduced to this peptide in December 2021 by Dr. Rudolph Eberwein and his colleagues as a powerful appetite suppressant.
Semaglutide lived up to its name, which is why I recommended it as one of the best peptides for weight loss out there.
(Supposedly, Elon Musk credited Semaglutide with his recent weight loss)
But just to catch you up to speed, here’s a basic explanation of what Semaglutide is and how it works:
“Semaglutide (Ozempic) is the synthetic version of a naturally occurring human hormone, called Glucagon-like peptide 1 or GLP-1 that has been modified so that it is less likely to be broken down and therefore has a longer duration of action. It is administered once weekly… GLP-1 is a really important hormone to help us regulate our blood sugar levels and probably our appetite and weight.
After we eat, GLP-1 is released from the small intestine. GLP-1 has a number of actions in the body that improve blood sugar levels that include the following:
(1) Lowers blood glucose levels by stimulating the release of insulin from the pancreas. (2) Reduces the amount of glucose that your liver is producing. (3) GLP-1 can cause you to feel full, so it increases early satiety.”
It goes by the better-known brand name “Ozempic” and is manufactured by Novo Nordisk.
Semaglutide doesn’t burn fat or increase your metabolic rate, but rather it blunts your appetite and makes you far less likely to engage in binge-eating behaviors.
That alone may make it FEEL like you’re becoming a pudge-melting furnace.
After using this consistently for 3 weeks, I literally had to force-feed myself into maintaining a caloric deficit… it’s insanely good at getting you to push the plate away.
The only thing I will note is that beyond a weekly dose of 0.3 mg, I don’t experience additional side effects but I start feeling woozy.
You’ll definitely have to experiment with the dosage to see what’s best for you.
HOW I USE SEMAGLUTIDE: 0.25 mg injected subcutaneously once a week (preferably on a day you are eating and training on), gradually increasing the dose every 4 weeks up to a maximum of 2.4 mg or until you see the appetite-suppressing effects you want.
Tirzepatide: The Even-More-Enhanced Version Of Semaglutide?
It turns out there may be a far more effective weight loss drug than Semaglutide.
According to Dr. Eberwein and his colleagues, they’re seeing even better fat loss results with a drug called Tirzepatide:
“Tirzepatide, known as a ‘twincretin’, is a ‘first-in-class’ and the only dual glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide (GIP) receptor agonist, that can significantly reduce glycemic levels and improve insulin sensitivity, as well as reducing body weight by more than 20% and improving lipid metabolism.
This novel anti-diabetic drug is a synthetic peptide analog of the human GIP hormone with a C20 fatty-diacid portion attached which, via acylation technology, can bind to albumin in order to provide a dose of the drug, by means of subcutaneous injection, once a week, which is appropriate to its a half-life of about five days”
Developed by Eli Lilly and marketed under the brand name “Mounjaro”, scientists figured out roughly 10 years ago that simultaneously targeting both GIP and GLP-1 could possibly produce improved outcomes:
“…an engineered peptide with activity at both the GIPR and GLP-1R was more effective at reducing body weight and blood glucose in obese mice than a selective GLP-1R agonist (GLP-1RA). This compound was also superior to a GLP-1RA for stimulating insulin secretion in non-human primates, and reduced blood glucose in humans with diabetes.
While the insulinotropic properties of a GIPR/GLP-1R co-agonist were expected, the effects on food intake and weight loss were not. However, recent work in rodents has demonstrated that the GIPR is expressed on neurons in the arcuate nucleus and other parts of the hypothalamus, and their activation reduces food intake and body weight, in particular when co-administered with GLP-1″
So far, all the head-on clinical trials between Tirzepatide and Semaglutide show the former to be superior in many ways (regardless of dose):
- Greater number of patients reach their 5%, 10%, and 15% weight loss goals
- Larger reduction in glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c)
- Higher absolute and relative reduction in total body weight
- Equal (if not lower) risk of adverse cardiovascular events
Tirzepatide received FDA approval for the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes in May 2022, and in early October 2022 the FDA granted Tirzepatide a Fast Track designation for treating adults with obesity.
All I can say is the following for the time being…
I am going to personally try out Tirzepatide for myself and see if it lives up to the hype.
If it does, you can expect a deep-dive article about it in the immediate future.
