DSIP, or Delta Sleep Inducing Peptide is recognized for its effects on sleep. It works by regulating sleep patterns, therefore shortening the time to fall asleep and lengthening the time you stay asleep. The effects of sleep have positive benefits throughout the whole body from the endocrine system to the cardiovascular system.
There are essentially 5 stages of sleep, these can be broken down into 2 categories: REM and non-REM sleep. Many sleep aids change the time or duration of these sleep cycles. The problem with this is these cycles are ALL associated with important physiological processes and anabolic hormone production. DSIP does not change sleep stages. It offers a more restful sleep.
Mechanism of Action DSIP peptide works by binding to receptors in the brain that are linked to sleep and relaxation. It helps increase the production of the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which slows down brain activity, induces relaxation, and promotes deeper sleep. DSIP may help combat insomnia and improve the duration of time spent in deep sleep, the stage of sleep that is the most restorative to mind and body.
During this stage of delta slow-wave sleep, there is a natural release of growth hormone (GH) which can also decrease the production of cortisol.
DSIP may also be used for:
Anxiety and depression
Regulate circadian rhythm
Like any peptide, DSIP comes with a few potential side effects. These may include headaches, dizziness, and gastrointestinal issues like nausea or stomach pain. However, these side effects are typically mild and subside independently without intervention. Check our website for more information. Available for purchase, call to schedule pick-up at 616-808-2695.
