Ibutamoren Mesylate (mk677) is a non-peptide growth hormone secretagogue (GHS). A GHS is a compound that can help in promoting growth hormone levels. GHS’s can replicate the action of ghrelin, a hunger hormone associated with the body’s natural circadian rhythm. In clinical tests, Ibutamoren Mesylate has been proven to increase the release of growth hormones and insulin-like growth factor 1.
This all means that healthy users of Ibutamoren Mesylate can increase lean body mass while lowering the body’s LDL cholesterol.
Ibutamoren has been studied for its ability to stimulate the brain activity associated with metabolic action, including the pituitary gland and hypothalamus. Because of its ability to trigger growth hormones, Ibutamoren is a promising therapy for osteoporosis and other aging-related conditions.
MK677 is prescribed for oral use (in tablet or capsule form) in 10mg or 25mg dosages. Men suffering from low levels of growth hormone can use MK677 to restore growth hormone levels. Healthy levels of growth hormone are necessary for protein synthesis, body mass growth, body fat management, and healthy sleep.
There are 3 main pathways of action:
- It indirectly increases GH secretion by inducing GHRH from the hypothalamus.
- They bind to the GHS receptors in the pituitary and signal GH release.
- They individually increase GH secretion by decreasing somatostatins (the GH inhibiting hormone) from the hypothalamus.
Low growth hormone can be measured by a doctor or recognized by signs you see yourself. Muscle atrophy and onset of obesity are possible signs of low growth hormone, as are low energy and decreased sexual desire. If you are seeing these symptoms, a doctor can help diagnose low growth hormone.
MK677 helps to stimulate growth in virtually all tissue including both bone and muscle. By releasing insulin-like growth factors, MK677 creates the conditions necessary for all growth in the human body. The benefits reported by users of Ibutamoren include:
- Increasing tendon repair
- Longer REM sleep and shorter sleep latency
- Increase lean muscle mass
- Stronger bones
- Lower body fat
- Improved endurance and stamina
- Increased IGF-1 levels
- High nitrogen levels in the body
- Increasing free T3 levels
MK677 is also studied for its effect on bone density. Multiple controlled studies have revealed that long term use of MK677 shows significant improvements in bone mineral density. Bone density is critical for bone health in men, the elderly, and the obese. In repeated studies, Ibutamoren consistently increased and maintained bone density.
Since growth hormone has been proven to support healthy sleep patterns, Ibutamoren is believed to improve sleep because it increases growth hormone. Studies have shown that MK677 not only improves overall sleep quality but also extends the duration of REM (deep) sleep.
Overall, MK677 has been shown to deliver a variety of health benefits including improved sleep, greater bone density, and greater lean muscle mass. If you have questions about bone density or lean muscle mass, connecting with a doctor in a discrete setting has never been easier. Sermorelin works synergistically with Ibutamoren.
