CJC 1295 is a growth hormone-releasing hormone. It stimulates one side of the pituitary gland to release more quantities of growth hormone. There are two proteins in this compound. Ipamorelin mimics the hormone ghrelin, which is responsible for appetite control. By binding to the ghrelin receptors in the pituitary gland, it also stimulates the production of excessive quantities of growth hormone. The combination of CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin acts on two different families of receptors to produce high amounts of HGH (Human Growth Hormone) in the body.
What is CJC 1295?
CJC 1295 directly binds to the receptors for growth hormone-releasing hormone on your pituitary gland. Research has shown that in men and women between the ages of 21 and 61, CJC 1295 increased serum growth hormone levels by 200-1000%. This elevated release of growth hormone continued for approximately six days as CJC 1295 has a half-life of 6-8 days. Longer half-lives mean the body continues to respond to the injection well beyond the time of administration. CJC 1295 has been shown to be safe to increase growth hormone concentrations without the harsh side effects experienced with human growth hormone treatments.
What is Ipamorelin?
As stated previously, Ipamorelin has an entirely different mechanism of action from CJC 1295 and mimics the hormone ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones the pituitary gland releases to regulate the release of growth hormone. Ghrelin is responsible for fat breakdown in the body to use as energy and also prevents muscle breakdown.
Why Combine CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin?
CJC 1295 by itself is a powerful anti-aging protein that increases HGH levels. HGH levels naturally decrease as we age. Increasing them leads to fat loss and increased muscle growth. When CJC 1295 is combined with Ipamorelin, there is a synergistic effect on growth hormone levels. The benefits are said to increase as much as five times with the combination treatment overusing CJC 1295 alone.
CJC 1295 takes from 1-4 hours to reach peak levels in the bloodstream, but Ipamorelin works much faster. CJC 1295 has a very long half-life, whereas Ipamorelin has a half-life of about 2 hours, so it’s cleared from the body quite quickly. Combining these two proteins ensures a rapid onset from Ipamorelin with lasting effects from CJC 1295. The one advantage these compounds have over other hormone stimulating treatments is that they don’t act on other hormones, meaning they have less undesirable side effects.
Benefits of CJC-1295 / Ipamorelin
There are several documented benefits from taking CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin:
- Increase in bone density – injuries due to a loss of bone density can increase as we age.
- Increased cardiovascular strength and muscle mass increase – higher muscle mass decreases body fat by increasing your body’s metabolic rate.
- Fat burning – an increase in your basal metabolic rate will burn more calories throughout the day.
- Increase in sex drive – this goes for both men and women. It goes without saying that a lack of proper sexual function has an impact on our mental health.
- Improved injury recovery – using a hormone replacement program decreases the recovery time for soreness and acute musculoskeletal injuries.
- Strengthened immune function – CJC 1295 helps you get sick less often.
- Improvement in cognition and memory – mental clarity and focus are improved.
- Increased insulin sensitivity – an increase in insulin sensitivity means your overall triglyceride levels are decreased. Lower blood sugar levels burn more body fat.
- Improved sleep quality – better sleep means better overall mental and physical health.
The most common side effects of CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin are injection site reactions, like pain, redness, swelling, flushing of the face, dizziness, headache, or hyperactivity.
If misused or at an incorrect dosage, the side effects increase to varying degrees, depending on the individual. Some of these side effects include increased hunger, dry mouth, tingling or numbness, high blood pressure, kidney problems, joint pain, moles or increased freckles, and decreased fertility.
Generally, the use of peptide compounds such as CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin is safe. They should be prescribed by a doctor rather than purchased online to ensure you are getting the correct dosage and that they are appropriately administered.
Dosage and Administration
It is recommended that this hormone replacement compound be taken at night to maximize the body’s natural growth hormone cycle. This will result in stimulation of the pituitary gland during the REM cycle of sleep.
CJC 1295 / Ipamorelin is taken by subcutaneous injection, with typical dosing of 300 mcg per day. It can also be taken 1-2 times daily with dosages of 250/100 mcg up to 500/200 mcg per dose. The smaller amount is typically taken twice daily, and the higher dose would be taken before bed. All dosing of this product should be done on an empty stomach one hour before or one to one and a half hours after eating. CJC 1295 / Ipamorelin is usually used for 12-16 weeks to see maximum results.
What Can I Expect From CJC 1295 / Ipamorelin Treatment?
Let’s look at an example of what you can expect in your first few weeks of treatment with CJC 1295 / Ipamorelin.
Week 1: You will see an increase in your quality of sleep. Quality, not quantity. It doesn’t make you tired; it just helps you sleep better. Your dreams will become more vivid. You will find yourself waking up more refreshed and not tossing and turning during the night.
Week 2: You will begin to see a shorter recovery time during your workouts. Some people report being able to work out on more days of the week because their bodies feel less sore.
Week 3-4: Mental clarity and focus will be noticeably improved. So will your skin elasticity, so you’ll look younger. Collagen production amps up when growth hormone levels increase, and this produces changes in your skin.
Week 6: Your overall body composition will begin to change. You will gain muscle mass, lose fat and burn more calories at rest.
