CJC-1295 & GHRP-6 Peptide Blend
Research indicates that peptides CJC-1295 and GHRP-6 may exert potential action on growth hormone release. When presented as a blend, they may possibly induce synergistic action, stimulating an organism’s synthesis and secretion of growth hormones. This peptide blend may possibly help repair mild injuries associated with muscles and surrounding ligaments.
GHRP-6 peptide is a synthetic six amino acid peptide analog of ghrelin, a naturally occurring peptide that is considered by scientists to stimulate the secretion of growth hormones and help maintain their concentrations.(1)
CJC-1295 peptide is a synthetic 29 amino acid peptide analog of growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH), a naturally occurring hormone that is considered by scientists to stimulate the release of growth hormones in the body.(2)
Chemical Makeup(2) (3)
CJC-1295 peptide: C152H252N44O42
GHRP-6 peptide: C46H56N12O6
CJC-1295 peptide: 3367.9 g/mol
GHRP-6 peptide: 873.0 g/mol
Other Known Titles:
- Growth hormone-releasing hexapeptide
- CJC-1295 with DAC
- CJC-1295 without DAC
Both forms of the CJC-1295 peptide essentially exert the same effect; however, the addition of DAC (known as the drug affinity complex) appears to change the duration of the effect of the peptide. CJC-1295 with DAC may have a longer-lasting effect than CJC-1295 without DAC.
Research and Clinical Studies
CJC-1295 & GHRP-6 Peptide Blend and Growth Hormone Levels
A clinical trial(4) was conducted in male test subjects aged between 20 and 40. All subjects were divided into two groups; one was presented with a placebo while the rest with the CJC-1295 peptide. A blood sample was collected from all the subjects before and after peptide presence. Based on these samples, researchers reported that the peptide appeared to possibly contribute to a 7.5-fold increase in the subjects’ growth hormone levels compared to the placebo group. The growth hormone levels appeared to increase gradually and remained unchanged one week after the peptide presence.
In another clinical study(5), the peptide was given in ascending concentrations in a group of test subjects aged between 20 and 60 years. All subjects were divided into two groups – one was presented with the peptide, while the other with a placebo. After the end of the study, when blood samples were examined, it was noted that there appeared to be concentration dependent action, up to 10-fold, in the levels of the subjects’ growth hormones. As per Madalina Ionescu, et al., “The marked enhancement of trough GH levels by continuous GHRH stimulation implicates the importance of this effect on increasing IGF-I. Long-acting GHRH preparations may benefit patients with intact pituitary GH secretory capability.”
In a study focusing on GHRP-6 peptide,(6) younger test subjects between 6 and 11 were presented the peptide. Some were only given the peptide, while the rest were presented with a blend of peptide and arginine (a growth hormone booster). After the completion of the study, it was reported by the researchers that the growth hormone levels appeared to have increased exponentially and in equal concentrations in all subjects, seemingly regardless of the presence of arginine.
CJC-1295 & GHRP-6 Peptide Blend and Hypothyroidism
Hypothyroidism is considered to be characterized by low levels of growth hormones in an organism. In a 1997 clinical study,(7) subjects with hypothyroidism were presented with either with GHRP-6 peptide, GHRH peptide, or a blend of peptides (such as CJC-1295) and GHRP-6. Post-study, it was reported that subjects presented with the blend exhibited apparently significantly high levels of growth hormones than the individual peptides alone. The GHRP-6 peptide is considered to be an antagonist of somatostatin, which may be an inhibitor of growth hormone secretion. Due to this, the peptide blend appeared to yield a higher result. As per F R Pimentel-Filho et al., “When GHRP-6 was associated with GHRH, a significant increase in the GH response was observed in these patients, which could suggest a role for somatostatin in this process. Our data suggest that thyroid hormones modulate GH release induced by GHRH and GHRP-6 through different mechanisms. However, additional studies are necessary to elucidate this hypothesis further.”
CJC-1295 and GHRP-6 Peptide Blend and Cellular Repair
Experimental animal models were induced with injury and multiple organ failure. They were then presented either the GHRP-6 peptide, or a combination of GHRP-6 and epidermal growth factor (EGF). Based on the laboratory results, it was observed that the peptide might affect the gut epithelial cells of these animal subjects, as well as possibly increasing cellular migration at three times the usual rate. In addition, it appeared to reduce any adverse action of such failure by 50-85%.(8)
CJC-1295 and GHRP-6 Peptide Blend and Diabetes-Induced Gastrointestinal Activity
Diabetes is considered by scientists to significantly impact the gastrointestinal system and may reduce the gastric emptying rate and colonic and intestinal transit. Research(9) conducted on experimental mouse models induced with diabetes were subjected to growth hormone release-stimulating peptides (such as GHRP-6). The peptide presence appeared to increase the rate of gastric emptying and intestinal transit, suggesting the peptide’s action in reversing the impacts induced by diabetes. No change was seen in the colonic transit. As per Zheng Q et al., peptides such as GHRP-6 “[have…] potential […] [for] delayed upper gastrointestinal transit.”
CJC-1295 and GHRP-6 Peptide Blend and Heart Rate
Preliminary research(10) was conducted in mice that suggested GHRH derivative analogs (such as the CJC-1295 peptide) may have the potential to stabilize heart rate and improve functionality following a heart attack. Andrew V Schally et al. reported that the peptide appears to promote cardiac tissue repair and improve the blood pump capacity of the heart. The researchers observed that the results “[suggest] that GHRH agonists promote repair of cardiac tissue, improving ejection fraction and reducing infarct size in rats, reducing infarct scar in swine, and attenuating cardiac hypertrophy in mice.”
