We usually steer clear of reviewing anything that claims to up your anabolic hormone levels with oral bioavailability.
That includes test boosters, secretagogues, sublingual tabs and the likes, that are a massive waste of your hard earned money. The research is blurred and we’d rather not invest our time, money and risk our health without being sure about what’s in that fancy looking vial.
If it were really that simple to boost anabolic hormones, then you wouldn’t have an entire generation of bodybuilders pricking needles or using SARMS.
But MK 677 tends to differ.
Here’s a clinically tested secretagogue that actually boosts your body’s natural secretion of Growth Hormone. It is backed by multiple clinical studies conducted to test the efficacy and the safety.
That’s why we decided to do a review of this amazing little compound that should be a part of every serious cutting or gaining stack.

Firstly, MK-677 is not a SARM. It is a GH secretagogue that’s related more to peptides like GHRP-6. Only, GHRP-6 is notorious for its nasty side effects.
MK-677 on the other hand is completely safe at normal doses. MK-677 when taken orally (no injections) sends a bunch of signals to the pituitary gland to secrete Growth Hormone. We all know how increased GH levels are desirable for an athlete or a bodybuilder.
It is also called Nutrobal or Ibutamoren in bodybuilding circles by the way.
Like most of its SARM siblings, Ibutamoren was created to prevent muscle wasting and catabolism caused due to diet related nitrogen wasting.
However, it was so effective in preventing muscle loss, amplifying metabolism and oxidizing stored fat, that it was only a matter of time before supplement manufacturers caught up and introduced it into bodybuilding circles.
There are so many ways in which you can benefit from adding Ibutamoren to your existing bodybuilding stack.
Let’s explore some of the possible scenarios.
You have just come off a cycle and you are feeling like shit already due to the sudden crash in test levels. More importantly, each passing day, you are losing muscle and gaining fat. MK-677 can help you prevent losing your hard earned muscle and keep that waist line from expanding.
Every athlete wants to get his hands on some HGH for obvious reasons. But HGH is obscenely expensive and very difficult to source. Not to mention that you will have to make needle pricks for months before it kicks in. Using MK-677 is like having an incessant supply of HGH without the needle pricks or the cost. You will gain lean, hard muscle during your bulking cycle.
Same as what we mentioned here. You will lose fat faster and keep your hard earned muscle. That’s a dream scenario by the way.
A compound like Ibutamoren can amplify the effects of your current SARM or AAS cycle in so many ways. The fact that it does not meddle with the natural hormonal production makes it invaluable as a cutting or bulking agent in any stack.
The recommended dosage is 25mg/day. Results are highly dose dependent. So if you up the dose to say 50mg/day, you might definitely see better results. But we don’t recommend that. Not when you get great results with a 25mg/day dose anyway.
If you are unaware of what HGH can do to your body, take a look at Sly Stallone. The guy is 70. But he can give any 40-year-old a run for their money. He was caught with vials of HGH (Jintropin) when he was visiting Australia to shoot for his Rambo movie.
While the effects of a secretagogue can never be as pronounced as what you’d get from an extraneous source of HGH like an injectable, you will still be able to get results like never before.
There are four ways in which the intensity of the body’s natural GH Pulse can be increased. By stimulating the release of GHRH (growth hormone releasing hormone), by boosting the signals of GHRH in the pituitary gland, by minimizing the release of somatostatin and by reducing somatostatin signaling.
MK-677 works by activating all of these processes in the body and increases the release of IGF-1 and GH.
The side effects associated with MK-677 are typical with HGH use, like lethargy and numbness in the hands. They are mild and reversible once you discontinue the usage.
Some users have reported an increase in Prolactin levels. We have personally never experienced this and are of the opinion that this might be happening only in people who are extremely sensitive to Prolactin levels and problems.
