What is a Peptide?
Peptides are naturally occurring short chains of amino acids called amino peptides (building blocks of protein). However, proteins differ from peptides as they contain long-chain amino acids. Peptides function as fundamental units of cells, enzymes, antibiotics, and hormones. They serve as ingredients for collagen (tendons, joints, muscle, etc), elastin (skin strength, smoothness, and flexibility), and keratin (hair and nail health). Research has suggested that live peptides may kill microbes, act as antioxidants, reduce inflammation, and prevent blood clot formation.
CJC-1295 DAC Peptide
The CJC-1295 peptide is the synthetic growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) equivalent. It was developed to boost growth hormone levels and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). Researchers are investigating its efficacy in animal trials. The CJC-1295 peptide, a long-acting GHRH analog, was initially manufactured to treat diseases, but initial research suggests it may possibly impact muscle performance as well.
While the mechanism of action has not been validated and approved by the scientific community, initial research suggests the peptide may induce fat loss, enhance delta-wave NREM sleep, increase physical performance, and host anti-aging properties. Initial research also suggests the peptide may induce potential vivid dreams, nausea, and low blood sugar – though no adverse reactions were reported during testing, according to this paper. The same study also suggests that CJC-1295 peptide may have potential in the future for therapeutic use in enhancing growth hormone secretion.
Ipamorelin peptide, also known as the growth hormone releasing peptide (GHRP), may increase growth hormone secretion via stimulation of the pituitary gland, and has been suggests by researchers to be more exact in its activation. Animal studies on Ipamorelin have reported lean muscle growth, reduced stress and anxiety, lower blood pressure, accelerated weight loss, and anti-aging effects One study suggests that this peptide may hold potential as a treatment those who suffer from osteoporosis and obesity, due to its hypothesized ability to increase bone density and burn fat. Side effects are less serious and less frequent than those of CJC 1295, but they may include headaches or vertigo.
CJC 1295 & Ipamorelin Research Studies
Scientists are carefully assessing the potential action of the peptide in various animal research studies and clinical trials. As a result of each of these peptides’ potential to induce maximal growth hormone secretion, this peptide blend may exhibit properties that enhance muscle and tissue repair, an increase in organism mood, energy and improved sleep cycles, as well as an increase in the immune system, cardiovascular functioning, fat burn and increased libido.
There has been indications in research studies that the peptides may each affect cognitive functions including possible increase in memory retention, focus, and clarity.
Finally, researchers are also considering the peptide’s potential to reduce blood sugar levels and increase metabolic functions.
This blend of CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin peptides may be a potential for consideration in the future of medical research. Though many studies have reported confident results, this peptide blend is still being tested for efficacy and safety. It has not been approved for human consumption or personal use, the peptides both separately and in blended form are prepared and available strictly for research and laboratory use.
