Discover The Secret Way MK-677 Perfects Your Physique…
MK-677 is an Investigational New Drug. Pharmaceutical companies experiment with it and hope they one day can bring it to market.
But bodybuilders found out about MK-677 and started using it to improve their bodies…
Why do you want to use MK-677 to build a better body?
This is why:
MK-677 is a growth hormone secretalogue. It boosts your body’s own production of growth hormone (HGH).
And here’s the deal: The #1 purpose of MK-677 is to increase your growth hormone levels. And it’s very effective at it.
So instead of talking about the benefits of MK-677… why don’t we start with why you want to increase your growth hormone?
The Truth About Human Growth Hormone
Back in the 1970’s, bodybuilding had been pushed to the edge.
Legends like Arnold Schwarzenegger had dominated the decade and built million-dollar career for themselves. Other athletes saw this and became more thirsty for success than ever.
And since everyone had already maxed out their steroid use… people looked for new drugs to help them achieve the ultimate physique.
Around the same time, pharmaceutical companies started extracting growth hormone from the brains of dead people.
Growth hormone could be used to treat children with disorders that made their bodies to little growth hormone.
But of course, bodybuilders got their hands on it and discovered the intriguing effects growth hormone has on your physique:
When bodybuilders took it, they got transformed.
Suddenly, a new era began. Now there were mass monsters with a shredded conditioning never seen before. Because growth hormone helps you burn body fat at a faster pace and increase muscle growth.
Ever since, human growth hormone has been a staple in the drug protocol of every high level bodybuilder.
HGH doesn’t grow your muscle nearly as effectively as anabolic steroids or SARMs. But it gives you that 10% boost compared to athletes who don’t use it.
And its fat loss and healing effects makes it worth the time.
But here’s the problem:
For ages, bodybuilders had to take pure human growth hormone. It’s extremely hard to get your hands on the real deal. And if you do, it will cost you a lot. I’m talking about a car payment every month.
Not only that, you’ll have to inject it frequently.
Because of that, gym rats became extatic when word got out about MK-677:
The Mind-Blowing Science Behind MK-677
MK-677 is not a steroid.
And even though it’s often called a SARM, MK-677 isn’t one.
MK-677 is a growth hormone secretagogue. A Growth hormone secretagogue (GHS) stimulates your body’s own production of growth hormone.
The science behind MK-677 is complicated, but here’s what you need to know:
MK-677 doesn’t mess with the rest of your hormones.
All you get is higher levels of growth hormone. Your natural HGH production won’t become suppressed. Neither will your testosterone levels.
Because of that, you do NOT need to perform a post cycle therapy.
Think of MK-677 as an oral, more convenient and 20 times cheaper alternative to genuine growth hormone.
The Effects You Can Expect From MK-677
If you take 10 mg of MK-677 per day, you can expect to increase your HGH levels by around 80%.
10 mg of MK-677 also increases IGF-1 levels by about 50%.
IGF-1 is created from growth hormone in your liver, and has similar effects to HGH. Fat loss and muscle growth. But it’s way more potent when it comes to building muscle.
Earlier we talked about the benefits of growth hormone. You build more muscle and burn more fat. Here’s a more detailed list of results you can expect from taking MK-677 and boosting your HGH/IGF-1 levels:
- Increase in protein synthesis — you will build more muscle and heal faster.
- Increased nitrogen retention in muscle — they become more full and pumped.
- You will burn fat easier.
- Anti-aging benefits – your skin will be more vibrant and smooth in just a few days of research.
- Better sleep. This is my favorite part of researching this compound. Your quality of sleep will skyrocket and you might even see an increase in crystal-clear, lucid dreams. It’s not a sedative, it’ll just improve sleep.
My Personal Review Of MK-677
I have researched MK-677 at two points in my life.
The first time, I mostly experienced the benefits — with very few side effects.
I felt really good. Sleep was incredible and even though the dreams can get… intense, I found them quite enjoyable. Every day I looked forward to a night of great sleep.
My muscles felt full. Although I didn’t gain any significant size in the 30 days of use — since I wasn’t bulk — my strength increased. Deadlift went up with 80 lbs ONLY from adding this compound.
The second time, the positive effects were the same but the negative ones were more pronounced.
Because here’s the deal:
Ibutamoren has negative side effects. Just like every other research chemical, steroid, drug or supplement. They are quite mild compared to most others. And as long you’re otherwise healthy, they will just be slightly annoying. And they can be kept under control.

MK-677 has two major side effects…
- Water retention (bloating)
- Hunger Increases
There are minor ones like tingling/numb hands and lethargy.
Elevated blood sugar and lower insulin sensitivity has also been reported in some studies.
If you work out and eat healthy — which you should if taking PEDs — you’ll be fine. But if you’re diabetic you shouldn’t take MK-677.
MK-677 has basically no harmful side effects when you compare it to suppressive SARMs like RAD140.
Your testosterone levels will NOT become suppressed. Your blood lipids will NOT take a hit. But if you were to take another kind of SARM, those side effects occur.
All in all, it’s incredibly safe. But let’s get into the mildly annoying side effects you will experience:
Because MK-677 increases your HGH levels, you get indirectly get an increased secretion of a hormone called ADH (anti-diuretic hormone).
This increases water retention, and depending on your dosage, MK-677 can add 5-10 lbs of water to your frame in a week.
Some bodybuilders compare the water retention to Dianabol, an anabolic steroid that’s known for puffing you up.
Aside from the negative effects water retention has on your looks, it can also be bad for your blood pressure. Drink a lot of water to combat it, and stay away if you’re already having cardovascular problems.
MK-677 makes your body produce more of ghrelin, a hunger hormone.
It gives you several spikes of this hormone throughout the day, and as a result, you become more hungry.
Potentially A LOT more. It varies from person to person.
Some researchers completely avoid ibutamoren during cutting cycles for this reason. For them, it’s impossible to stick to a strict diet with MK-677. However, I have developed an effective protocol for using MK-677 during a cut — keep reading to find out.
This side effect is also a double-edged sword.
While the hunger can be a pain in the butt during cutting phases, it’s also a benefit for people who bulk and have a bad appetite. It allows them to consume enough calories they otherwise couldn’t.
In my experience, the magnitude of hunger you get is dose-dependent. Higher dose, higher hunger.
And the hunger disappears with time.
Long-term Side Effects From MK-677
Mk-677 has one side effect that can possibly develop if you take high dosages for a long time. Since it increases your production of growth hormone, it can — in the long term — cause growth in all parts of your body.
That includes your inner organs, hands, feet and facial features. I recommend you to read this article for more in-depth info.
How To Dose MK-677
You should start with as low dose as possible. See how it affects your body.
However, different dosages of MK-677 also gives different types of effects.
- If you look for the anti-aging, improved recovery and fat-loss effects, a 10 mg/day dosage is perfect for you.
- If you want more muscle growth, 20-25 mg/day might suit you best.
You can take MK-677 once a day.
What Results Can You Expect From MK-677?
Expect your bodyweight to increase with about 5-10 pounds. But don’t be mislead — it will NOT be pure muscle…
It will mostly be water- and nitrogen retention. Your muscular definition will take a hit.
MK-677 is a good addition for those who want to increase muscle mass and lose fat. But don’t use it on its own and expect extreme growth. You want to stack it with directly muscle-building SARMs like Ostarine or LGD-4033 (or anabolic steroids).
Stacking MK-677 with other anabolic compounds will give you a synergistic effect. When it comes to bodybuilding, sometimes 1 + 1 equals to 3. And that applies to MK-677.
How To Use MK-677 For Fat Loss & Cutting
Alright, boys. Most people on the internet will tell you that MK-677 is only good for bulking.
“It makes you hungry and bloated! Boo-hoo!”
But let me tell you a secret…
MK-677 is an extreme, powerful tool when you’re cutting down on body fat.
Combined with other fat loss SARMs like Cardarine, you could supercharge your fat burning.
But you have to know the secret tricks for using it in the right way. Otherwise you’ll fall flat on your stomach, and be another one of those whiners who complain that MK-677 is bad for cutting.
Here’s why MK-677 is beneficial for fat loss and cutting:
It increases your Basal Metabolic Rate.
Many athletes take fat burners, which is a blend of caffeine and other stimulants. They increase your Basal Metabolic Rate (the number of calories your body burns in a day).
MK-677 gives you a similar effect.
In fact, a 200 lbs man can expect to burn 100-150 additional calories a day when using MK-677 for a couple of weeks. (And unlike fat burners, MK-677 doesn’t have a stimulatory effect.)
100-150 calories a day may not sound like much — but if your diet stays the same… it leads 0.22 lbs of additional fat loss each week.
When you cut you don’t want to lose muscle. Which is why you normally increase your protein intake on a caloric deficit. You aim to maintain as much muscle as you can.
Bumping up your protein intake preserves more muscle because it makes you retain more nitrogen.
Nitrogen is the #1 preserver of muscle.
There are other ways you can increase nitrogen retention. For example, by taking anabolic steroids and SARMs.
MK-677 is also extremely effective at maintaining nitrogen — even at very low calorie deficits.
In fact, it’s been shown to completely reverse nitrogen wasting. That’s why it’s being explored as an anti-wasting treatment for AIDS patients.
You get better sleep
I’ve already told you that MK-677 results in deeper sleep. This benefit is most valuable on a cut.
When you bulk, you’re satisfied and calm. You have an easier time sleeping.
But on a cut, you’re hungry and amped up on fat burners. I have a damn hard time falling asleep. It can take hours.
MK-677 doesn’t help me fall asleep. It drastically improves my sleep quality.
So even if I sleep for fewer hours, the hours spent sleeping will be more “valuable”. I wake up refreshed and rested anyways.
Other fat-loss benefits
- When you’re low on calories, your immune system will take a hit. You’re at risk of catching colds easier, but MK-677 improves your immune systen.
- The increase in HGH and IGF-1 you get from MK-677 helps you metabolize fat incredibly well.
- More of the body weight you lose will be fat instead of muscle.
How To Use MK-677 Cutting.. The Right Way!
Be careful when using MK-677 on a cut. There are traps you risk falling for:
When you start taking MK-677, it makes you hungrier.
It can give me the largest appetite I’ve ever had in my life.
However, the hunger effects transition away after a few weeks of usage.
That’s why I began using MK-677 during the last weeks of my bulk. Right after it ended, I began cutting. And I kept taking MK-677.
By the time I started restricting my calories, the worst hunger pangs had gone away.
It’s also dose-dependent. On 10 mg a day of MK-677 you will not experience the same hunger as on 25 mg/day.
MK-677 CAN make you very bloated. There’s an easy fix:
Eat clean and minimize your carb intake. You see minimal bloating.
It’s as if MK-677 only amplifies the bloating you get anyways from a shitty diet.
I personally don’t care about bloating during my cut, as long I can see the body fat melting away. But you may want to discontinue using MK-677 about 10 days before a photoshoot or competition.
To be honest…
I can’t guarantee how your body will respond to MK-677 during a cut. Nobody can! If they do, they are liars.
It’s up to you to see for yourself.
But I’d recommend you to go LOW with MK-677 when cutting. 10 mg/day gives you a significant increase in HGH. You get diminishing returns — and more side effects — when dosing higher than that, unless you’re ony interested in muscle growth.
Since MK-677 doesn’t affect the body’s testosterone production, you do not need to perform a PCT after ending a cycle. You don’t need to cycle it at all. People have cruised on it for years without negative consequences.
After a year of constant usage, your body’s response to MK-677 will not be as strong. It will get used to it and not get as powerful of an effect.
But you won’t get damaged from long-term usage.
Stacking it with SARMs?
Since MK-677 only affects your growth hormone levels, you want to stack it with a SARM that binds to your muscle’s androgen (male hormone) receptors for real results.
What are SARMs?
SARMs are a group of drugs designed to give steroid-like effects in muscle, bone and joint tissue, without the negative downsides. It’s much less harsh on your body.
But keep in mind that when you take real SARMs that bind to your androgen receptors, the stakes will be slightly raised. They are not 100% safe, even though people lie in attempts to sell them to you.
I hope the blog post brought some value to you, brother.
And before you take ANYTHING… you should read my post called “9 Questions Before Your First SARM Cycle“. I wrote it with SARMs in mind, but a lot of the questions apply to MK-677 as well.
