Improves Cognitive Function

Doctors usually prescribe MK-677 for patients suffering from cognitive impairment because of its nootropic effects. Nootropics are drugs, supplements, and other substances that have the ability to improve certain aspects of cognitive function such as learning, memory, creativity, and motivation. Several high quality studies support the many beneficial effects of MK-677 as a cognitive enhancer:
1. By increasing REM sleep duration and sleep quality, MK-677 improves cognitive function. [82-83]
2. In older adults, administration of growth hormone secretagogues improves short-term memory and active problem-solving skills, suggesting that MK-677 may also exert beneficial effects on cognitive function. [84]
3. In adults with mild cognitive impairment and healthy older adults, 20 weeks of growth hormone secretagogue administration improves executive function and verbal memory. [85]
4. MK-677 improves various aspects of cognitive function by increasing IGF-1 levels. [86-90]
5. With increased IGF-1 levels, the body activates intracellular pathways involved in the protection of nerve cells in the brain. [91-108]
6. MK-677 also protects brain cells against programmed cell death (apoptosis) by increasing ghrelin levels, which in turn prevents cognitive decline. [109-114]
7. MK-677 improves cognitive function and prevents age-related cognitive decline by increasing the levels of GH. [115-129]
8. Administration of growth hormone secretagogues improves cognitive function by increasing the levels of brain chemicals such as gamma-Aminobutyric acid and N-acetyl-aspartyl-glutamate. [130]
9. In healthy older adults, administration of growth hormone secretagogues helps combat age-related cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease. [131]
10. In rat models of Alzheimer’s disease, MK-677 administration reduces the formation of abnormal proteins known as amyloid beta (causative agent of AD). [132]
11. SARMs such as MK-677 stimulate growth and development of brain tissues, enhance communication of nerve cells (neurons), and promote brain cell survival. [133-136]
