Augmented Labs MK-677 (Ibutamoren) is a growth hormone secretagogue which improves body composition and health by increasing IGF-1 and HGH levels. Ibutamoren increases growth hormone levels by mimicking the action of the hormone ghrelin and binding to one of the ghrelin receptors in the brain. Activated GHSR stimulates growth hormone release from the brain and, as a result, fat loss and muscle mass are dramatically increased when you combine this supplement with resistance training.

What is MK-677?
Ibutamoren isn’t a SARM, however, it’s usually classed as one. It can, however, be stacked with other SARMS to boost gains potential. This is a non-hormonal supplement and therefore it requires no PCT.
As MK-677 increases your natural IGF-1 and HGH levels which naturally drop with age, it offers a host of overall health benefits including quality of sleep, repair and recovery, fat loss, lean muscle gain, healing of wounds and preventing injury. These make it a great choice for anyone who wants to achieve a harder, leaner and more muscular physique.
How MK-677 Works
MK-677 promotes the secretion of the growth hormone (GH) and increases insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). It increases growth hormone levels by mimicking the action of the hormone ghrelin and binding to one of the ghrelin receptors (GHSR) in the brain.
Combined with the appropriate diet and exercise regimen, Ibutamoren will effectively increase muscle protein synthesis alongside much improved fat loss, as well as rapid recovery and healing.
When to Use Augmented Labs MK-677
Ibutamoren is suitable for use in a range of ways. If you are dieting, it can boost fat loss and promote muscle fullness. If you use it while bulking, this supplement also helps to decrease your fat gains while enhancing muscle gains and vascularity. It will also optimise your joint function.
Ibutamoren is usually taken at 20-25mg per day but also works well at lower doses. Even 5-10mg is enough to produce numerous GH pulses over the course of a day. Some users have reported more pronounced effects at higher doses of around the 25mg range but there is significant anecdotal evidence to suggest a higher dose comes with more side-effects such as lethargy and increase in appetite.

Some people find that taken first thing in the morning will improve sleep quality but may experience more lethargy during the day. These side effects are dose-dependent. Ultimately you can experiment and find what works best for you.
Who can Use Augmented Labs MK-677
Trainers and athletes aged 30 and up will find Ibutamoren a very beneficial supplement. As we age, our IGF-1 and HGH levels fall and the joints take longer to repair after damage. This supplement, however, delivers impressive body composition gains.
