Peptides are similar to proteins, but smaller in size. They are short-chain amino acids that play vital roles in many different processes throughout the body. Peptides are naturally occurring, meaning they are biological molecules that the body produces to help things run smoothly. They target different systems and consist of 2–50 short-chain amino acids.

When it comes to certain health conditions, peptide therapy has been researched widely as an effective way to restore and regulate different functions. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with other types of therapies. CJC 1295 is a specific peptide designed to stimulate the secretion of human growth hormone.

What is CJC?

The peptide CJC 1295 is a synthetic analogue version of CJC. Naturally occurring CJC is in charge of the stimulation and released of human growth hormone from the pituitary gland. Because human growth hormone is used in a variety of different processes (from stimulating growth in children and adolescents to boosting protein production in adults), it is important that it is released when the body needs it.

If an adult doesn’t secrete enough human growth hormone, it can lead to an increased risk of obesity, heart disease, weak muscles and bones, and mental health issues. This is why levels of CJC need to be at their best to help eliminate or reduce the risk of developing serious health conditions.

Other symptoms and health conditions that could be caused by low levels of human growth hormone include:

  • Cognitive dysfunction, such as changes in memory and attention span
  • Depression, anxiety, and social isolation
  • Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Neuromuscular dysfunction
  • Central adiposity
  • Decreased bone density
  • A decrease in the body’s sensitivity to insulin
  • Increased lipoprotein
  • A decrease in the body’s ability to thermoregulate 

This goes to show just how important it is for CJC levels to be regulated so they can do their job of encouraging production and secretion of human growth hormone.

What does CJC 1295 do?

When the body doesn’t produce enough CJC on its own, people may need to supplement with CJC 1295. Since there are serious health repercussions at stake when the body is deficient in human growth hormone (the most serious being premature death), CJC 1295 aims to correct low levels through regular therapy.

Levels of human growth hormone naturally begin depleting within the body at age 30. This can contribute to changes in body composition over time, as well as altered stamina and endurance, lack of vigor, and heightened risk of certain terminal illnesses such as cancer. CJC 1295 can help alleviate some of these risks and restore balance in human growth hormone levels.

How long does CJC 1295 take to work?

CJC-1295 is taken via injection. It has been found to have immediate effects in the levels of both human growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor. A single injection was found to have been effective for at least six days, but could sometimes last up to 11. The half-life, meaning the time it takes for the injection to be reduced to half of its value, of CJC-1295 is six to eight days.

With regular use and proper dosing, it has been found that CJC-1295 can lead to optimal levels of human growth hormone and the insulin-like growth factor for up to 28 days.  

CJC 1295 benefits

Research has found CJC 1295 to be incredibly beneficial in a variety of ways. Due to its stimulation of human growth hormone and insulin-growth factor, it can help with a variety of different bodily functions.

The most notable benefits of CJC 1295 come from that stimulation, and can include:

  • An increase in muscle mass and bone density
  • Improved cognitive function that may have been affected by a deficiency in human growth hormone
  • An increased ability to repair and regenerate cells
  • An increased level of overall fat loss when combined with a healthy lifestyle

These benefits should be seen within the first month of therapy; however, more benefits can be attained through regular use of CJC 1295 peptide therapy. They include:

  • Healthier skin, hair, and nails
  • Better metabolic function
  • Increased libido
  • Mental focus
  • Joint health
  • Improved levels of wellness due to organ regrowth and repair

People may also see a reduced level of overall fat if used during a six-month period without any changes in diet and exercise, but adopting a healthier lifestyle during CJC peptide therapy will increase the efficacy of the peptide and thus increase overall results.

CJC 1295 side effects

Taking human growth hormone has been shown to have serious side effects in many people. That is why some have turned to CJC 1295, because it is far less risky for adverse effects. Although the peptide is generally tolerated well by most people, some may experience side effects while taking it. These side effects can include:

  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Drowsiness
  • Hives or other skin reactions brought on by an allergy response
  • Hyperactivity

CJC 1295 does not pose too much risk, and the side effects tend to be mild if they appear at all.

Do you need a prescription for CJC 1295?

Injectable medications are often not easy to acquire, and CJC 1295 is no exception. To obtain the peptide, a prescription will need to be filled out. The CJC 1295 peptide is included in Vital RX’s Immune Health Box because of its ability to aid in overall wellness.

To explore further, schedule a consultation with our doctor or speak to your family care physician if you feel that CJC 1295 could benefit you. The consultation is important because it allows the doctor to take into account your medical history and any medications or supplements you may already be taken that could interact with or contradict the effectiveness of CJC 1295.
