CJC-1295 / Ipamorelin

Workout in Gym


CJC1295 / Ipamorelin is the combination of two compounds, CJC1295 and Ipamorelin.  CJC 1295 is prescribed as a Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) analog that acts on the pituitary gland.  Ipamorelin is prescribed as a selective Growth Hormone Secretagogue that also acts on the pituitary gland.  This combination acts together to increase your Human Growth Hormone levels  by acting on two different families of receptors.  It is best prescribed to be taken before bed on an empty stomach to maximize the body’s natural cycle of growth hormone production and stimulate the pituitary gland during REM sleep.  Using both CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin together is exponentially more powerful than using either one by itself.


Based on the literature, CJC1295/Ipamorelin has been shown to be effective in raising growth hormone/insulin growth factor - 1 levels which helps to:

  • Increase muscle mass

  • Improve ability to burn fat

  • Increase sex drive

  • Improve recovery and repair from injuries

  • Regenerate nerve tissues

  • Strengthen the immune system

  • Improve cognition and memory

  • Increase bone density

  • Strengthen the cardiovascular system

  • Outperforms sermorelin due to longer half-life and increased efficacy

CJC1295/Ipamorelin should not be used while pregnant or breastfeeding. Always tell your physician about all medications and supplements, especially corticosteroids and thyroid medications, that you are taking. Common side effects of CJC1295/Ipamorelin include reactions at the injection site, such as pain, redness or swelling along with flushing of the face; and less than 1 percent of patients report dizziness, headache or hyperactivity.
