MK 677, also known as Ibutamoren, is a type of SARM – which is a ‘selective’ anabolic driver that provides steroid-esque effects, but doesn’t cause the unwanted side effects.
The basic principle behind a SARM like MK 677, is that it has an anabolic, or stimulating effect on some cells (like muscle), but leaves other cells unaffected (like prostate cells).
Many body builders and athletes are switching to SARMS because they are safer, provide powerful results, and are a non-injectable – making them very convenient. They are taken orally by placing the liquid under your tongue. Easily done.
The primary focus of MK 677 is its amazing ability to quickly increase growth hormone and insulin growth factors. The clinical studies and research clearly show MK 667’s ability to stimulate growth hormone release, and increase IGF-1. This is further confirmed by users who’ve posted blood work on forums.
Growth hormone is a very powerful hormone – it is the master hormone in your body, which when increased to the levels you had when you were 20 can provide a huge list of benefits.
The main reasons people want to raise their growth hormone levels, are because of the powerful effect on:
- Melting fat and Building Lean Muscle
- Anti-Aging Properties
- Better Quality Sleep
- More Energy and Feelings of Youthfulness
The research on this product is solid. There is no doubt of its ability to produce higher HGH levels in the body – driving up muscle growth, energy output, and fat loss.
Users who have taken MK 677 and posted about their personal experiences, also boasted about:
- muscle gains
- fat loss
- improved sleep
- better energy
- a feeling of well-being
- noticing improvements in the appearance of their skin
These observations from MK 677 users all align with what the research studies show.
One side effect noted by people is an increase in hunger/appetite. If the hunger pains are too strong, decreasing the dose can help – which is something we personally confirm helps.

Also, check out the social proof tab for references to discussions/feedback from people who have posted about their experiences with MK 677.
The scientists and bio chemists behind this product have also created a unique, patented delivery system, which helps the bio availability of the product.
It is taken orally under the tongue, and has a half life close to 24 hours – so you only need to take it once per day, when you’re using it.
This is a double strength product, made in a proper lab located in Australia. The quality of this product is confirmed with HPLC lab tests and spectrum analysis that highlight the purity of this MK 677. Check the ‘lab quality’ tab for details.

Here is a collection of research studies we’ve found that give great insight into the potential of MK 667, and SARMS in general.
- Study designed to test the effects of MK-677 on growth hormone secretion in healthy males
- Randomized double blind with placebo control using MK-677 25 mg dosage
- The group treated with mk 677 showed a 40% increase in insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) vs placebo after 8 weeks
- GH and PRL levels peaked significantly after the initial dose of MK-677
- Serum and urinary concentrations of cortisol (stress hormone) were not increased
- Fat-free mass (lean muscle) increased significantly in the MK-677 treatment group
- Basic metabolic rate was significantly increased at 2 weeks of MK-677 treatment
- Study concluded that Changes in body composition and energy expenditure were of an anabolic nature
- Study designed to test growth hormone treatment in catabolic patients with MK-677
- Eight healthy volunteers were calorie restricted for 14 days, the control group was given 25mg of MK-677 on the last 7 days
- Those who took the MK-677 were able to stabilize nitrogen levels and significantly prevent muscle wastage
- Study concluded that MK-677 was a safe way to treat those affected with chronic diseases that cause catabolic conditions
- Study designed to test the effect of MK-677 on growth hormone deficient adult men
- The SARM was well tolerated within the body, no significant changes in stress markers (cortisol)
- 10ml treatment showed a 20% increase in growth hormone
- 50mg treatment showed a 30% increase on average
- The mk-677 showed the best improvement on those who were least deficient
- Study to test the effects on sleep quality via GH boosts from MK-677 on healthy young and older adults (18-71 years)
- MK-677 is a growth hormone secretagogue
- Baseline sleep and hormonal data were obtained before and after sleep tests
- Younger subjects saw a 50% increase in stage IV and 20% increase in REM sleep
- Older adults seen a huge 50% increase in REM sleep, and were able to reach it faster
- Study designed to determine if mk-677 increases growth hormone secretion in young adults range, without serious adverse effects
- 2-year, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, modified-crossover clinical trial. 65 healthy adults. ranging from 60 to 81 years of age
- 25 mg of MK-677 dosage used
- Daily administration of MK-677 significantly increased growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor I levels to those of healthy young adults without serious adverse effects
- The most frequent side effects were an increase in appetite that subsided in a few months
- MK-677 enhanced pulsatile growth hormone secretion
- Significantly increased fat-free mass
- Was well tolerated by the body
- Study to test effect on MK-677 on bone density in women
- 25 mg treatment
- Did not find any noticeable result in bone density
- Study did find a ~40% increase in insulin-like growth factor, an anabolic hormone
- Study to investigate MK-677 growth hormone boosting effects as an anti-aging agent
- Thirty-two healthy subjects (15 women and 17 men, aged 64-81 yr) were enrolled in a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trial
- 25 mg/day found an increase in mean 24 hour growth hormone levels by 23%
- No changes in cortisol (a stress indicator)
- Once daily treatment of older people with oral MK-677 for up to 4 weeks enhanced pulsatile GH release, significantly increased serum GH and IGF-I concentrations, and at a dose of 25 mg/day restored serum IGF-I concentrations to those of young adults
- IGF-binding protein-3 only increased with high doses
