What is MK-677
All you need to know Mk-677/Ibutamoren
Even though “MK-677! Is related to the class of SARM (selective androgen receptor modulators) they are not technically a sarm but a “secretagogue”
It mimics the effects of human growth hormone (HGH).
“HGH” is one of the most important hormones for growth from childhood to adulthood. It also helps to stimulate muscle growth and fat metabolism. But as you get older you decrease production, sometimes accelerated by certain factors such as food, physical activity, sleep quality, stress, etc. Within the benefits of the hormone is increase muscle growth, improves the quality of the skin, increases bone density, decreases cardiovascular risk, improves mood and sleep quality.
MK-677 (also known as Ibutamoren or Nutrobal) is taken oral and strongly increases the production of human growth hormone in the body.
Mechanism of action
After ingestion, MK-677 sends signals to the pituitary gland to secrete more growth hormone, unlike the HGH injections in which the hormone is directly injected, the MK-677 stimulates the production of growth hormone in the organism and IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor 1), which also stimulates protein synthesis and muscle growth.
Side effects of MK-677
MK-677 does not cause the alteration in testosterone, estrogen or DHT levels. There aren't androgenic side effects and it doesn't cause hair loss, although it is not common for this to occur, it can produce the following side effects: mild lethargy, fluid retention, increased appetite.
If accompanied by a proper diet and training routine, it achieves a rapid muscle growth and elimination of body fat, depending on the physical shape you have can achieve a gain of 2 to 10 Kg of lean muscle mass in 2 to 6 months, there are other desired effects such as increased strength and physical resistance, energy levels, sleep quality, sexual performance, mass bone density and heart health, has anti-aging properties. For women, unlike other anabolics, it works the same way as in men without masculinizing side effects. Although by now it’s being only recommended for over 21 years, it can affect the natural hormonal production and return to normal levels.
The increase in physical strength and strength gain can be observed in 2 days but the results in the body take a week on average.
The MK-677 doesn´t cause a decrease in the natural production of GH and doesn't cause desensitization of the pituitary gland.
How to use MK-677
The most common use of this is oral; there are presentations in capsules or drops and is taken for cycles 1 to 4 months but to reap the full benefits of MK-677 body psychological and physical you are looking at a cycle of anywhere between 6-12 months.
In conclusion, the MK-677 is almost as effective as HGH injection with fewer potential negative side effects. It is much more economical than external HGH and does not need to be injected.
