What are Peptides?

Peptides are the building blocks of proteins and are composed of amino acids that work to regulate a variety of biological functions and processes. These naturally occurring peptides act as signaling molecules within the body and instruct other cells and molecules on what functions to perform. Some common functions of peptides include providing pain relief, aiding in soft tissue repair, accelerating healing processes, promoting weight loss and lean muscle gain, reversing symptoms of sexual dysfunction, improving hormone production and cognitive function, increase melanin for tanning, reduce signs of aging, and improve sleep quality.

Different Types of Peptides

CATEGORY: Optimal Health

The liver produces IGF-1 to work in concert with insulin to determine what type of fuel the body uses at a given time. IGF-1 helps transfer glucose through cell membranes for growth and repair of muscle, nerve, and heart cells. Over time, if the liver becomes too fatty, production of IGF-1 suffers, putting more dependence on insulin, which can eventually lead to diabetes. Boosting the IGF-1 peptide keeps insulin balanced as well as providing a host of other benefits.

Benefits include:

  • Reduced body fat with enhanced fat burning

  • Increased muscle mass and strength

  • Improved energy and physical stamina

  • Better sleep and lower incidence of insomnia

  • Enhanced cognitive function

  • Improved calcium retention and better bone density

  • Improved skin elasticity

  • Strengthened connective tissue and

CJC-1295 is a 30 amino acid peptide hormone that has shown incredibly promising results as a Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) analog. CJC-1295 stimulates HGH secretion and can provide a steady increase of HGH with minimal effect on cortisol and prolactin levels. This means increased protein synthesis, thus promoting growth and fat loss simultaneously. Ipamorelin mimics ghrelin and binds to the ghrelin receptor (or GH secretagogue receptor, GHSR) in the brain, thereby selectively stimulating the release of GH from the pituitary gland. This results in increased plasma GH levels, which would affect many biological processes. Unlike other GH-releasing peptides, Ipamorelin only stimulates GH release in a manner very similar to that of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone. This combination results in a great aid for sleep, energy, stamina, and recovery benefits.

Benefits include:

  • Increased protein synthesis

  • Promotes fat burning

  • Improves sleep quality

  • Increased bone density

Epithalon is the synthetic version of the polypeptide Epithalamin, which is naturally produced in humans. Epitalon decreases the age-related changes in immune and neuroendocrine systems and reduces recurrent infections and chronic diseases. Some of the benefits include regulation of hormones, rejuvenation and strengthening of the immune system, and normalization of uric acid, cholesterol, and electrolyte levels.

Epitalon’s primary role is to increase the natural production of telomerase, a natural enzyme that allows for replicating our DNA so the body can grow new cells and rejuvenate old ones. Young people produce a large amount of telomerase and longer telomeres. However, as people age, the production of telomerase declines, and consequently, cell replication and health decline. This is the main reason people age.

Benefits include:

  • Increase human lifespan

  • Promote deep sleep

  • Delay and prevention of age-related diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and dementia

Pegylated Mechano Growth Factor (PEG MGF) is a derived form of the IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1), which stimulates myoblasts division and allows for muscle fibers to fuse and mature. This is a process necessary for growth of adult muscle. The distinction between IGF-1 and MGF is that MGF stimulate myoblasts division through stimulation of different receptors. Research has demonstrated that PEG-MGF helps increase the muscle stem cell count, so that more may fuse and become part of adult muscle cells.

CJC-1295 can help individuals over the age of 30 to have more energy, a faster metabolism, and stay in better shape as you age. It’s not a hormone itself, so it is a relatively safe and low-risk option when all things are considered. However, it requires a prescription and is delivered via an injection, so there are some important points to cover regarding the CJC-1295 benefits and side effects trade-offs.

One of the biggest reasons why CJC-1295 is being embraced by so many in their anti-aging fight is because of the relatively low rate of side effects. Most people tolerate CJC-1295 quite well, and side effects are generally mild if present at all. The most frequent side effect was injection site reaction – usually skin complaints or mild pain at the site of injection.

CJC-1295 and Ipamorelin are typically combined in therapy because the are known to work well together. CJC-1295 takes anywhere from 1-4 hours to reach peak serum in the blood, while Ipamorelin works much quicker. Ipamorelin is cleared from the body more rapidly as it’s half life is about 2 hours. The combination of both peptides ensures a rapid onset with Ipamorelin and lasting effects with CJC-1295. These 2 peptides are incredibly specific at increasing growth hormone levels when compared to other peptides. Other peptide can increase levels of cortisol (as seen with stress, can increase hunger) but neither Ipamorelin nor CJC-1295 have an effect on other hormones which is a great advantage.

Most prescribers direct that CJC-1295 be taken once daily, via subcutaneous injection (above the muscle, below the skin) in the stomach or abdominal region. Other prescribers recommend a “5 days a week” plan, either with skipping days every 2 or 3 days, or weekdays on, weekends off for injections. There is competing evidence as to the efficacy of these two dosing regimens, but in both cases, the effects of CJC-1295 – higher circulating levels of human growth hormone – tend to last for upwards of a week following administration and continue at that level so long as the administration continues a few times a week.

The effects of CJC-1295 have been researched thoroughly. It is beneficial in building muscle, losing body fat, and boosting energy levels. It does all these by facilitating the production of more growth hormone for your body.

Research has shown that administering CJC-1295 once weekly helps to increase plasma GH concentrations (2-10 times more) for a period of up to 6 days after injection. Further, it increases IGF-1 levels by 1.5 to 3 times, for a period of 9 to 11 days, with no adverse side effects.

CJC-1295/Ipamorelin is injected subcutaneously or under the skin. The injection is taken at night to mimic the natural release cycle of growth hormone.
