CJC-1295 is basically a peptide hormone that acts similar to growth hormone releasing hormones (GHRH). It achieves this by preventing degradation of its amino acids. With a single dose, it can remain in the body for quite a few days and can cause the growth hormone to be released many times per day. This reduces the frequency of injections needed.
CJC-1295 increases the production of growth hormone as well as IGF-1 – which has good effects in adults. However, it does not increase the levels of prolactin – high levels of which can create impotence and mental health problems in men. By increasing these two hormones, it enhances protein production in the body, which in turn, boosts muscle mass. It also induces lipolysis – the breakdown of fat tissue, boosts recovery from injuries, increases bone density, and also reduces aging factors like skin wrinkles. It can also stimulate cell growth, due to which it can be used to treat withered tissue or organs.
