Improve Your Quality of Life With Peptide Therapy — Ipamorelin and CJC

Couple running

Peptide therapy is a new and exciting field in anti-aging and integrative medicine. There are many different types of peptides available, all of which work to stimulate different biological processes. Some of the most commonly used peptides work by stimulating our bodies natural production of human growth hormone (hGH).

What is Growth Hormone?

Human Growth Hormone (hGH) is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. Growth hormone is naturally released throughout the day in bursts following exercise, trauma and during sleep—with most production occurring at night.

Growth hormone acts on many different tissues and body systems. It has many roles in the body, including utilizing and breaking down body fat, stimulating the growth of bone and cartilage, and aiding in overall repair and recovery. 

How Peptide Therapy Can Improve Growth Hormone Production

Peptides are long chains of amino acids that work to help stimulate, or “wake up”, certain biological activities. The specific shape of a peptide, along with its amino acid sequence allows it to target specific biological roles in the body.

Peptides like Ipamorelin and CJC work by sending signals to the pituitary gland to increase production of Human Growth Hormone. Because ipamorelin and CJC stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, it enhances your bodies ability to produce GH without shutting down production. 

Decline in Growth Hormone Production As We Age

As we age, human growth hormone production declines. Consequently, our bodies begin to show the effects and many people start to experience changes in their bodies like decreased muscle mass, lower energy, poor sleep, and higher body fat percentage. Utilizing peptides that target growth hormone production (GHRP’s) can help to improve your quality of life and vitality. 

What are the Benefits of Ipamorelin and CJC?

Why Use Ipamorelin and CJC together?

Ipamorelin and CJC work on two different receptors. Combined, they work together to maximize growth hormone production.

How Ipamorelin and CJC are Administered

Ipamorelin and CJC are administered as a subcutaneous injection 5 out of 7 days a week. Dosing amounts and timing varies depending on your individual goals. Your provider will work with you to come up with the best dosing strategy to maximize your individual goals. 

When Will I Start to Notice the Effects?

The first benefit people typically notice is deeper and more restful sleep within the first week of starting the peptides. After 2 to 4 weeks, you should expect to notice enhance recovery with workouts, improved mental clarity, improved skin elasticity, and improved energy. Body composition changes typically occur around 6 weeks and will continue to progress. 

Optimal results typically occur after 3 to 6 months. After that time you can choose to either continue therapy or can take a break from therapy for a period of time. Once optimal results are achieved, HGH production often maintains itself for several months.
