The Benefits of Using MK-677 (How To Guide)
MK-677 is a SARM, Select Androgen Receptor Modulators, are legal therapeutic compounds that can potentially mimic the anabolic effects of steroids without the harmful side effects. This claim is made, according to the USADA website, because SARMS have fewer side effects such as organ growth with less anabolic, muscle building and strength benefits.

The need for an agent similar to SARMS is present.
Studies done on SARMS show that they increase physical function and bone health with no cardiovascular or health side effects. Of course, there are also a lot of idiots out there. I received an email for a forty year old house wife who wasn’t dieting but had been advised by her trainer to use a SARM. Not natural supplement but a SARM.
The potential benefits of SARAM are wide ranging from the ability to fight muscle wasting and all the disease that come with it to potential loss of bodyweight by cancer or even help someone fight bone loss.
If aging or ill individuals or just your regular person trying to improve their health, have access to a compound that can increase your muscle mass or decrease their body fat without any potential harmful effects, then you would think everyone would be all over it, especially if they an be monitored by a medical professional.
Ahh muscle mass and bodybuilding. There’s a SARM for that.
MK-677 And Bodybuilding
Bodybuilding message boards are buzzing with feedback about MK-677 and its ability to increase muscle mass without harmful side effects.
MK-677 is referred to as Nutrabol and is a oral hormone that acts as a growth hormone secretagogue. MK-677’s anabolic role is in helping the pituitary gland increase its production of human growth hormone. Growth Hormone plays a role in body weight, muscle and bone growth, blood sugar levels and a variety of metabolic functions. The problem is that as you age, your growth hormone levels decrease which leads to increased body fat, muscle wasting and a lack of energy.
Since it’s extremely hard, and illegal, to obtain, growth hormone will be an injection and will likely be a synethic growth hormone. So you can see the desire for a similar, legal, aid for boosting growth hormone.
One study has shown that MK-677 can encourage your body to produce its own levels of human growth hormone while also reducing levels of somatostatin which is an antagonist hormone to growth hormone. Interesting note, this coffee is actually brewed to contain more green coffee bean extract, another somatostatin inhibitor.
SARM Dosages And Uses
One study on MK-677 in 1998 showed that it can increase nitrogen balance which increases muscle protein synthesis and muscle recovery. When you increase your nitrogen balance positively you also decrease your nitrogen breakdown.
But a negative nitrogen balance is also seen in bedridden people or elderly who sit all day. Decreased nitrogen balance is linked to fatigue, muscle wasting and frequent illness.
Another anabolic benefit of MK-677 is the ability to have better quality sleep. If you have ever spoken to a bodybuilder who has used anabolic steroids, they tell you that they can almost never sleep through a full night. Yet MK-677 appears to increase REM sleep by at least 50% in both younger and older adults. The researchers in the study concluded that MK-677 usage can also correct the body’s growth hormone decline with age.
So what’s the deal?
I need to point out that MK-677 is banned by USADA, WADA and every other drug testing body. If you compete in any sport, it likely is banned.
The research on MK-677 to get to another level of health and body composition is very real but do health individuals need to use it?
I personally think that medical professionals should really look into SARM usage for treating healthy elderly individuals who are just losing body weight but what about healthy individuals?
There’s a lot of ways to increase nitrogen balance. You can eat more total calories, more protein or use BCAAS.
You can improve sleep quality by using melatonin or following good sleep hygiene.
I’m not recommending MK-677 usage but it does seem exciting.
