Many people who use peptide therapy have found the experience rewarding. From fat loss and lean muscle gain to added stamina and a better night’s sleep, there is a wide array of benefits.
Peptides are amino acids that help control major body functions. From building proteins to transporting cells, peptides are so essential that deficiencies and imbalances wreak havoc on your body. The human body becomes vulnerable to a myriad of diseases and disorders when peptide levels are too high or too low.
And that's where peptide therapy comes in. By correcting peptide levels via peptide therapy, you can restore the body's equilibrium, lessening the risk of developing certain illnesses.
Peptides occur naturally in every cell of every living thing. They have many functions, including the production of enzymes that help your body break down foreign substances. They create a sort of antibiotic for your immune system and hormones that control everything from growth to sexual development. Without peptides, life would not be possible.
Some peptides work wonders on their own, while others are combined to get the best results.
Over the course of several articles, we are introducing you to 6 powerful peptides people love.
Today’s spotlight: CJC-1295 and Ipamorelin
CJC-1295 and Ipamorelin are two of the most popular peptides among anti-aging enthusiasts, fitness fanatics and wellness seekers. They complement each other so well that they are most frequently used together.
When combined, these two peptides results in anti-aging, fitness, and wellness benefits, including:
Increases lean muscle mass
Improves the immune system
Increases fat loss and weight loss
Accelerates healing and recovery
Enhances sleep and mood
Boosts energy level
Fights several signs of aging
Builds collagen and reduces wrinkles
Improves cognitive function
The CJC-1295 and Ipamorelin combination is especially beneficial to the body’s endocrine system. The endocrine system encompasses all of the glands within your body that create hormones, and a top-tier endocrine system leads to muscular development.
For this reason, many weightlifters prefer to combine these two peptides for optimal results. Aging adults, especially menopausal women, also combine them to fight muscle deterioration brought on by age.
Let’s take a closer look at each one, including their individual benefits and side effects.
A Closer Look at CJC-1295
CJC-1295 is a synthetic peptide that stimulates human growth hormone (HGH) production. It effectively encourages your pituitary gland to release the body's natural HGH.
HGH shares in the responsibility of producing of other types of hormones. These hormones are anabolic, which means that they stimulate the development of muscle tissue within your body.
Three Benefits of CJ-1295
Promotes Lean Muscle Growth
Our bodies use protein to help build muscle. When our bodies synthesize protein better, they have more protein to use as building blocks for muscle growth.
Medical professionals initially used CJC-1295 to help patients whose muscles had wasted away due to disease.
The increase in muscle tissue is also one reason bodybuilders are attracted to this CJC-1295.
Encourages Fat Loss
CJC-1295 also enhances a process known as lipolysis. During this process, the body breaks down lipids. The breakdown of these lipids decreases body fat which can trigger weight loss.
Menopausal women experience an increase in stubborn belly fat as a result of estrogen loss. Because of CJC-1295’s effectiveness in fat loss, it is an excellent peptide therapy to combat the belly fat struggle.
Promotes Youthful Appearance
The more HGH you have, the younger you look and the better you feel. Since CJC-1295 stimulates an increase in HGH, it has anti-aging properties that can keep users looking youthful. CJC-1295 aids in fighting several signs of aging and it builds collagen, reduces wrinkles, and ultimately reverse the effects of aging.
What are the Side Effects?
With the proper dosing, side effects are minimal, however some people report:
Long, vivid dreams
Low blood sugar
Weakness in body joints
Carefully regulate the amount of CJC 1295 you inject. In the beginning stages, we recommend that you start with the smallest dose possible and measure your body's response to the drug at this stage. Then you can decide whether or not your body can handle larger doses. This approach should minimize the side effects you experience.
A Closer Look at Ipamorelin
Like CJC-1295, Ipamorelin is a peptide hormone that stimulates your pituitary gland, triggering the release of HGH. It’s benefits differ slightly to CJC-1295.
Some common Ipamorelin benefits include:
Joint and ligament repair
Increased testosterone production
Blood pressure regulation
You may notice that some of these benefits counter the side effects of CJC-1295. For instance, CJC-1295 can cause weakness of the body joints; however, Ipamorelin repairs joints and ligaments.
What are the Side Effects of Ipamorelin?
The side effects of Ipamorelin aren't common. One reported side effect of this peptide is headaches or vertigo. The effect, however, depends on how much Ipamorelin users inject into their bodies. When the dosing is too high, users are more likely to experience headaches.
Just as suggested with CJC-1295, start slowly when beginning Ipamorelin. Slowly work your way up to a dose that suits your body. Doing so should give your body time to adjust to the peptide hormone.
