What Is Ibutamoren?
Also known by the name MK-677, Ibutamoren was originally developed to encourage the pituitary gland to secrete, or release, growth hormone. Ibutamoren mimics the function of ghrelin, a natural secretagogue, helping to increase lean body mass. It can also help developmental issues in individuals with growth hormone deficiencies. Ibutamoren can also increase insulin growth hormone-1 levels without affecting cortisol levels.
How Does It Work?
Ibutamoren works by stimulating the hormone ghrelin. Naturally produced in the stomach, ghrelin is essential to the central nervous system and is a major factor in metabolic processes and the production of energy. Ibutamoren also inhibits somatostatin receptors to prevent muscle loss.

Ultimately, Ibutamoren offers increased muscle growth and workout quality without interfering with sleep, mood, or other issues that cortisol-increasing supplements often cause.
The typical dose of Ibutamoren is 25mg per day. You can stack your daily dose of Ibutamoren with other supplements, but check with your doctor before adding it to your typical routine to make sure it works with your current supplement and nutritional regimen.
Potential Side Effects
One of the best aspects of Ibutamoren is the minimal side effects reported with regular use. Ibutamoren is non-estrogenic, non-androgenic, and it is not suppressive. It also does not cause cortisol spikes like some other dietary supplements and muscle-building compounds. Some of the most commonly reported side effects are hunger increases after starting taking Ibutamoren and water retention, but these side effects dissipate relatively quickly for most users.
Q: Is Ibutamoren safe?
A: Although clinical trials have not yet proven any potential long-term effects from Ibutamoren use, the initial side effects are minimal and do not last very long. There is a chance that Ibutamoren can reduce insulin sensitivity and increase blood sugar.
Q: How will it work with the supplements I already take?
A: You can easily stack a daily dose of Ibutamoren with other supplements, but it’s a good idea to have your doctor or nutrition counselor review your daily intake to look for any potentially negative interactions.
Q: What is the best way to use Ibutamoren?
A: Ibutamoren works best with a consistent diet and workout routine.
