Anti-Aging, Human Growth Hormone and Unleashing the Fountain of Youth Part 2

We previously wrote an article about human growth hormone and its effect of unleashing the fountain of youth (here). Today, we write about one peptide combination and how it can help you increase HGH and experience stronger anti-aging effects than with just human growth hormone alone! What does this mean for you? 

This means that by using peptides (protein molecules), you can increase human growth hormone in your body. Human growth hormone naturally declines with age. When we use peptides to increase human growth hormone, we can slow down the effect of aging.

CJC-1295 and Ipamorelin are both peptides that increase Human Growth Hormone (HGH). You may recall from our earlier article that increasing HGH can have dramatic effects on health. Its main effect is in anti-aging, unleashing the fountain of youth.

To Re-Cap:

Peptides are short chains of amino acids found in food.  Basically, peptides are proteins. Peptides are a new and exciting therapy with many health benefits; including anti-aging and better fitness/ exercise performance among others. We are using peptides ourselves and are impressed with the results we are seeing. We wrote more about peptide therapy here.

What is CJC-1295?

To answer this question, let’s talk a bit about the body’s physiology. In order for the body to release this magical hormone (HGH), the brain needs to be stimulated to release it. Normally the brain is stimulated to release human growth hormone by releasing another compound called growth hormone releasing hormone. When growth hormone releasing hormone is secreted, the brain is stimulated to release human growth hormone.

Part of the problem with aging is that the body still makes HGH, but it is not stimulated to release it anymore. Therefore, peptide therapy involves using the protein molecules that actually stimulate the brain to release the human growth hormone again.

The peptide that helps with this is called CJC-1295. CJC-1295 is essentially growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH). It is designed to stimulate the brain to release human growth hormone (HGH) (Teichman SL, 2006). It was invented by the pharmaceutical company Conju Chem Biotechnologies, hence the CJC in the name.

Human Growth Hormone or HGH is a hormone that promotes growth. It is crucial for growth and development from childhood into adulthood. It also helps with tissue repair which is why it is associated with anti-aging.

In our youth, HGH is naturally produced by the pituitary gland (part of the brain), in a pulsating manner. It is secreted, or pulsed, in regular intervals during a continuous 24-hour time period (Ionescu M, 2006). The use of human growth hormone releasing peptide (aka CJC-1295) leads to the increase of HGH secretion and IGF-I production while maintaining its pulsed quality (Ionescu M, 2006), which is how human growth hormone works. The increase in HGH levels by continuous stimulation is important in increasing IGF-I (Ionescu M, 2006). IGF-1 has many different functions also related to growth and repair that we talk about in a different article.

In summary, the use of CJC-1295 leads to the release of the body’s natural stores of human growth hormone in a way that mimics how we released human growth hormone naturally in our youth. This is the magic of this therapy. It is basically stimulating our body to better utilize what we already have!

As a result of this improved stimulation and release of HGH, clinical results of CJC-1295 include fat loss, increase in lean muscle mass, better lipid profiles, better deep wave sleep and increased repair and recovery.
