If you have read the previous blog about peptides, then this is a good continuation as we are going to be talking a little more in-depth about each of the peptides that we currently offer. We are going to focus on Sermorelin, Ipamorelin, CJC-1295, and GHK-CU for the purpose of our current offerings.

You should now be familiar with the word “peptide”. I know that this can get quite confusing, so each peptide serves a specific purpose, and I have chosen to work with these peptides due to their overall effect on wellness and performance, as well as antiaging effects,

Hormone Releasing Hormone

First up is Sermorelin. Sermorelin is a Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) that stimulates directly binds to the pituitary gland to release growth hormone. Why would you want your body to release more Growth Hormone? As we age, our bodies stop secreting Growth hormones, so we may notice physical changes such as increased fat, decrease strength, and a decrease in energy. Who wouldn’t want to be stronger, have increased energy levels, and carry less fat? Another benefit of Sermorelin is an improvement in sleep, which helps the body recover appropriately. Sermorelin has a good safety profile but does require some lab work monitoring.


Next up is Ipamorelin. Ipamorelin is a Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide (GHRP), pentapeptide ( 5 amino acids), and ghrelin agonist. (Ghrelin is the hormone regulating hunger). Ipamorelin also has a good safety profile, and is similar to Sermorelin, but has a different mechanism of action in helping increase Growth Hormone. Ipamorelin inhibits the release of Somatostatin, which in turn increases the secretion of Growth Hormone. Due to this mechanism of action, there is a slower release of Growth Hormone which makes it more natural. Ipamorelin also improves sleep, decreases hunger, increases lean muscle mass, and decreases fat. The use of Ipamorelin will also require monitoring blood work.

CJC-1295 is also a GHRH. CJC-1295 is used in conjunction with Ipamorelin to help increase muscle mass, improve sleep and reduce fat. The reason that this particular peptide works well in conjunction with Ipamorelin is that Ipamorelin has a short half-life, while CJC 1295 stays in the body for up to one week. This allows for a steady, consistent release of Growth Hormone and better outcomes for patients.

Lastly, GHK-CU is a copper peptide that has huge regenerative and health benefits. GHK-CU. GHK-CU is beneficial for skin issues, such as elasticity, pigmentation, tone, and overall structure of the skin helps to increase hair growth, stimulates wound healing, and also has shown benefits in repairing organs and having anti-cancer actions.  The benefits of this peptide are truly endless.

The following article provides a wealth of information on how the peptide really works throughout the body and the benefits of using this particular peptide. Is peptide therapy for you?
