MK-677, also known as ibutamoren or ibutamoren mesylate, belongs to a group called growth hormone secretagogues. They are substances that boost the production of growth hormone (GH). MK-677 can also increase the production of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), a hormone similar in molecular structure and function to insulin. The ability of MK-677 to boost the levels of GH and IGF-1 is associated with a wide array of health benefits. The exact mechanism by which MK-677 exerts these effects is by mimicking the action of ghrelin (hunger hormone) and binding to one of the ghrelin receptors (GHSR) in the brain.  Interestingly, GHSR is located in certain regions of the brain that regulate appetite, mood, pleasure, and cognitive function.  Because of this, researchers believe that MK-677 can have beneficial effects on these functions. In addition, MK-677 is also classified as a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM), a class of therapeutic compounds similar in function with anabolic agents, but with lesser side effects. This makes MK-677 a safe and effective form of GH and IGF-1 replacement therapy.
