Thymosin alpha

Thymosin alpha 1 is peptide containing 28 amino acid residues that are N-terminally acetylated and proteolytically processed from prothymosin alpha. Thymosin alpha 1 was isolated by Goldstein and coworkers from thymosin fraction 5, a mixture of peptides from calf thymus in the 1970s. It is used to improve 10 immune responses in times of need and is currently being used for auto-immune conditions.

Delta-sleep-inducing peptide (DSIP) is an endogenous neuropeptide that has been shown to induce natural delta EEG sleep.

It has a wide range of modulatory effects in the central nervous system and its mechanism of
action has not been fully determined. Aside from its sleep inducing effects, it acts on circadian rhythms by interacting with serotonin and melatonin. It has also been shown to have a regulatory effect on the endocrine system by interacting with temperature regulation and having a direct or indirect effect on alleviating hypothermia.

Further studies have showed that is has significant effects on the protection against oxidative damage. DSIP has the ability to enhance the efficiency of oxidative phosphorylation and contributes to pronounced stress protective and antioxidant action.

CJC 1295 Ipamorelin

CJC 1295 stimulates growth hormone release via binding to the pituitary. This peptide directly mimics the endogenous Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) typically secreted by the hypothalamus.

CJC 1295 comes in 2 chemical forms. One includes a binding group called DAC, or Drug Activity Complex. The DAC bind to serum albumin and significantly increases half life. However, for many reasons, this is not the preferred product for many patients clinically.

Instead, the tetrasubstituted 29 amino acid modified growth releasing factor often called Mod-GRF is the version of CJC most use clinically. This version of the CJC 1295 outperforms the older and outdated GHRHs such as Sermorelin. The half-life of Sermorelin ranges from 8-12 minutes, whereas the half-life of CJC 1295 extends to 30 minutes. As a result of better stimulation and release you see many clinical results including fat loss, increases lean muscle mass, better lipid profiles, better deep wave sleep and increased repair and recovery. Use in combination with Ipamorelin, the CJC is one of the most widely prescribed products.
