Looking for a potent GH release that doesn’t involve needles? Ibutamoren (mk-677) may just fit the bill…
The benefits of Growth Hormone on metabolism and lean body mass are undeniable. I also go to great lengths pointing out that I don’t think GH is much of a muscle builder per se, and that its ultimate benefit comes down to controlling, or rather off-setting, the detrimental effects of insulin on body composition, when it comes to excessive fat gain. Insulin and IGF-1 are amazing at increasing protein synthesis, no doubt, but the real benefits after extended trials of anything that increases GH levels seem to come more in the way of increased leanness, and decreased fat storage.
Ibutamoren, MK-677 is often referred to as part of the SARM family, although strictly speaking this is incorrect. Ibutamoren is not a selective androgen receptor modulator but is a compound known as a secretagogue.
Ibutamoren is taken orally and can help you increase muscle mass, boost muscle size, and improve your strength in training too (which will obviously also lead to better gains). It can also help you lose more body fat during a cutting diet or a body recomposition phase.
MK-677 makes the body increase the amount of growth hormone it produces, which has many ancillary effects, most of which are related to muscle growth and increased bone density. In medical fields, it was developed to treat frailty in the elderly. In short, the main benefits of ibutamoren are:
In addition to increases in muscle tissue and a leaner physique, studies suggest that Ibutamoren can produce significant anti-ageing effects, as well as improved bone density and more rapid recovery times.
A single tablet taken daily is designed to release wave after wave of naturally secreted growth hormones.
