Today we are talking about CJC 1295 and its potential benefits. All this and more in less than 2 minutes.
An excellent example of the ability peptides have to work together with our own bodies comes from a few of the most commonly used peptides available for anti-aging: growth hormone-releasing hormones (or GHRHs) and growth hormone-releasing peptides (GHRPs).
As you know, aging is essentially our bodies breaking down at the cellular level. As we age, we deal with things like decreased muscle mass, decreased immune function, a decreased sex drive, increased skin issues, change in mood, and the list goes on and on.
All of this along with depression, and many more unwanted effects seem to inevitably come as part of the aging process. Some of this dysfunction can be treated with GHRH peptides like CJC-1295 or GHRP peptides like Ipamorelin or a combination of BOTH! Today we are going to focus on CJC 1295.
What is CJC 1295?
CJC 1295 is a lab-made peptide hormone, primarily functioning as a GHRH or amplifier. In simple terms, the peptide increases protein synthesis, human growth hormone (aka HGH) secretion, and insulin-like growth factor (or IGF-1).
IGF-1 is a hormone that’s similar in molecular structure to insulin and plays an important role in childhood growth and has anabolic effects (or muscle-building effects) in adults.
What are the benefits of CJC 1295?
CJC 1295 is useful to those looking to increase lean muscle mass and strength by stimulating the release of growth hormone. It also promotes muscle recovery as it boosts protein synthesis levels and helps the growth of muscle tissues resulting in quicker recovery times for athletes and those with injuries. And because it stimulates the production of IGF-1, it can help decrease body fat and increase natural strength.
Compared to other peptide therapies, CJC 1295 has a longer half-life of 30 minutes which requires fewer peptide injections and results in the continual release of growth hormone.
It also has minimal effect on cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone that’s released into your bloodstream when your body undergoes stress. This hormone causes an increase in your heart rate and blood pressure. It’s your natural “fight or flight” response. However, over time, if your body experiences repeated stress, you may begin to feel tired, irritable, depressed, and even experience weight gain.
Does CJC 1295 work?
Peptide therapies are not miracles in a bottle. They don’t guarantee desired results. Like anything in life, you must also make lifestyle changes when it comes to certain desired outcomes. For example, a poor diet and lack of exercise can have a negative impact on your health and cause weight gain, joint pain, and can even lead to type 2 diabetes.
Peptide therapy in addition to healthy lifestyle choices can help you achieve your health goals!
What are the possible side effects of CJC 1295?
Possible side effects include redness or itching at the injection site. You should tell your healthcare provider about any side effects you think you may be experiencing.
