What Is CJC 1295 Peptide Therapy?

What is CJC 1295?

CJC 1295 is an amino acid combination (or “peptide”) of 30 amino acids which acts to release growth hormone from the pituitary gland. It is often used in combination with insulin growth factor (IGF-1) or other peptides that cause a release of growth hormone such as Ipamorelin. CJC 1295 increases the levels of growth hormone and increases cellular repair without increasing levels of prolactin which can occur with other HGH medications. CJC 1295 is a growth hormone releasing hormone peptide. GHRH is released by the hypothalamus to act on the pituitary gland to maximally release a person’s natural growth hormone.

What are the benefits of using CJC 1295?

There are several benefits associated with the use of CJC 1295.  By causing a release of HGH, it’s use leads to a reduced levels of body fat, increases lean muscle strength and size, increased metabolism, as well as all the other benefits of an optimal HGH level (see other blog post on HGH benefits).

  • Increased Energy
  • Fat Loss
  • Better Sleep
  • Higher HGH Levels
  • Better Cognitive Function & Concentration
  • Faster Injury Repair (e.g. post surgery)
  • Increased Muscle Mass

What are the side effects of CJC 1295?

There are minimal side effects associated with the use of CJC 1295 since it contains compounds of natural amino acids and not synthetic chemicals.  Some common complaints by patients can be a feeling a temporary tingling sensation in the extremities and “head rush”immediately after injection. Some patients also complain of a temporary irritation, swelling, or redness at the site of the injection.  These effects are often temporary and resolve with consistent use of the medication

The dosage of CJ 1295 usually is 200 mcg subcutaneous injection immediately prior to bedtime*.  The largest spike of human growth hormone is at night so right before bedtime is the best time to take your medication. CJC 1295 should be done 5 out of 7 days of the week to allow for your pituitary gland to replenish it’s growth hormone stores during the off days.  CJC 1295 should be administered at least 60 minutes after the last meal eaten as carbohydrates and fats in the bloodstream can inactivate the peptide.

*NOTE: As with all medications, it’s best to consult your doctor prior to starting any new medication or therapy, including CJC 1295.  You should discuss your current medications, health conditions, past diseases or disorders. This will help ensure that you don’t have any contraindications for use, and help you better reach your health and fitness goals.
