Strengthens the Immune System

MK-677 and other growth hormone secretagogues have the ability to enhance the immune response. Studies show that they play a role in the regulation of the immune function through the following important mechanisms:
1. In humans, growth hormone secretagogues modulate the immune function through stimulation of the GH/insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-I) axis. [203-206]
2. In the elderly, both short- and long-term growth hormone secretagogue administration increases the numbers of lymphocytes, monocytes, B-cells and T-cells. [207]
3. Growth hormone secretagogues can also modulate the immune function through brain mechanisms involved in sleep regulation. [208]
4. By increasing GH levels, MK-677 helps regulate T cell development, cytokine production, B cell development, antibody production, neutrophil adhesion, monocyte migration and anti-apoptotic action. [209-210]
5. By increasing GH levels, MK-677 also significantly lowers the risk of various diseases related to compromised immune system. 211-222]
6. By increasing IGF-1 levels, MK-677 also significantly lowers the risk of autoimmune diseases and other immune system-related disorders. [223-237]
7. By boosting ghrelin levels, MK-677 strengthens the immune system by lowering inflammation. [238]
8. In animal models, administration of growth hormone secretagogues increases the numbers of CD2+ αβ T-cells, CD25+CD4+ cells, and CD4+CD45R+ cells of the immune system. [239-240]
