Ibutamoren (MK-677)

What is Ibutamoren

MK-677 (also known as ibutamoren), promotes the secretion of the growth hormone (GH) and increases insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). Ibutamoren increases growth hormone levels by mimicking the action of the hormone ghrelin and binding to one of the ghrelin receptors (GHSR) in the brain.

Activated GHSR stimulates growth hormone release from the brain. Clinical studies describe only the effects ibutamoren has on appetite and as expected, like ghrelin, ibutamoren increases it. GHSR is found in brain regions that control appetite, pleasure, mood, biological rhythms, memory, and cognition.

Therefore, we can expect that ibutamoren may also affect these functions. It increases growth hormone levels with little or no increase in other hormones, such as cortisol. Cortisol suppresses the immune system, reduces wound healing, and impairs learning and memory, and it’s usually not good to have this hormone elevated.

Benefits of Ibutamoren (MK-677)


Peptides have more precise tissue-selecting effects and have more rapid response with less side-effects when compared to hormones.

They have high potency and specificity, but low toxicity.

They have a broad range of targets and can also improve the structure of the cells by improving the availability of cellular material.

We are happy to walk you through our assessment process to fully understand how/if peptide integration is needed for your healing and optimization.

Absolutely. We ensure our doctor prescribed peptides are  completely safe for use.

Every one of our clients reacts positively to our treatment plans. However, the timing in which they experienced the benefits of their therapy does differ. With that being said, most therapies take action quite quickly and strong changes can be seen or felt within the first 3-6 weeks

There are many different methods to provide peptide therapy. Our doctors will be happy to help you find the one that works the best for you.

Much like experiencing the benefits of peptides, this will largely depend on your individual needs. Many peptides can be utilized long term, others can be used in short bursts to achieve ideal results.
