MK-677 (Nutrobal or Ibutamoren) is being called ‘The poor man’s HGH’.
It couldn’t be truer.
The other day, we spoke to a 55-year-old male fitness buff in the gym who could give any 30-year old a run for their money.
The bloke was ripped and apart from the occasional wrinkle here and there, his skin was blemish less.
He was in the best shape of his life. He felt energetic. His mood was amazing.
His secret? Human Growth Hormone.
He had been using Jintropin or HGH injections shipped for from China for a few years. But the continual usage had hit his finances hard. So he had hopped on to MK-677 or Ibutamoren around a year ago.
We asked him whether there was any difference in the way he felt or in his body composition after switching to the secretagogue.
The transition had been flawless.
The only notable difference that he could feel was the reduced swelling in his ankles. With HGH that had been a regular occurrence. That had eased down after shifting to Ibutamoren.
Everything else was exactly the way it was before.
That prompted us to create this blog post about how MK677 is better than HGH injections in every way.
Here are 9 reasons for you to consider.
#1 – Third party approved quality MK-677 is readily available
HGH injections are shipped from underground labs mainly in China, Thailand and Russia. So quality can be circumspect.
You never know if you are actually receiving legitimate HGH. It can be part HGH laced with an anabolic steroid or a prohormone.
There may be glowing reviews on the website. But hey, an underground lab is an underground lab. Quality control is non-existent. You are basically relying on the lab to ship you with a legitimate product.
And we all know what happens when there’s money to be made.
On the other hand, you can buy legitimate MK677 from a variety of suppliers who have third party certifications that guarantee purity.
It is less likely to be faked or counterfeited or laced with something else.
#2 – Injectable HGH needs to be refrigerated, Nutrobal DOESN’T.
HGH injections usually come in two vials. One vial contains the freeze dried HGH powder and the other one contains sterile water. You will draw water from the second vial and mix it with the powder to create the HGH injection.
Once you mix the two, the vial has to be refrigerated at all times, else the HGH will lose up to 90% of its potency within just 24 hours.
There are some newer formulations which contain added preservatives which allow you to store them at room temperature for a little longer. But even those are better off when refrigerated.
MK677 on the other hand can be stored at room temperature which makes it more discreet. You can carry it with you when you travel. And it’s easier to store.
#3 – Nutrobal is orally bioavailable
No more annoying pins with Nutrobal. It has excellent oral bioavailability. Just take a few drops from the dropper and you are done.
It can be dosed anywhere and anytime without inviting glares from your close ones.
#4 – Ibutamoren is cheaper
A month’s dose of Ibutamoren can be purchased for less than 70% of the cost of a month’s supply of HGH injections.
Since HGH needs to be cycled for at least 6-12 months, run the math.
You will be saving a lot of money if you plan to use it continually for the next few years. Remember the ‘poor man’s HGH’ acronym?
#5 – Ibutamoren increases fat free lean body mass
What’s amazing is that there’s hardly any difference in the results that you can achieve with HGH and Ibutamoren.
Both take around 5-6 months to kick in. Both reduce body fat while increasing lean muscle.
There is a marked improvement in the quality of sleep. The mood is better. The person feels more energetic.
This makes it the perfect compound to use year round even if you are a steroid user. This way, you won’t gain a lot of fat even when you are off steroids.
Nutrobal increases the secretion of SHBG which in turn amplifies the effects of most anabolic steroids.
#6 – Ibutamoren does not cause serious side effects
Exogenous HGH has been associated with a bevy of serious side effects that include swelling in the limbs, carpal tunnel syndrome, gigantism, reduced insulin sensitivity and possibly even breast enlargement.
Unlike testosterone or other androgens where the side effects can be predicted to the T, it’s unpredictable in HGH. You never know when the sides will hit you.
Another risk is the possibility of developing Type II diabetes, which can occur as the insulin sensitivity reduces and blood sugar levels rise continually.
In the clinical study that we have mentioned above, Nutrobal was well tolerated for up to 2 years without no serious sides.
What does that tell you?
#7 – MK-677 works flawlessly with other SARMS and steroids
If you are looking for a side-effect free performance enhancement ride, then MK677 clubbed with SARMS like LGD-4033, Ostarine and RAD140 might be the best bet.
Nutrobal in fact compliments these SARMS perfectly.
For bulking cycles, LGD with MK677 provides excellent results. LGD allows you to gain up to 6-10 lbs. of lean muscle in an 8-week cycle. MK677 will make you hungry which allows you to eat in a calorie surplus, a problem that a lot of athletes face.
When used in a cutting phase with a SARM like Cardarine, MK677 allows you to retain muscle mass when you come off the compound. In other words, it minimizes the rollover effect. The only caveat is that you should be able to find a way to minimize the hunger pangs.
#8 – MK-677 may be a better compound to run long term
The ridiculous cost aside, long term exogenous HGH usage is just not feasible due to the risk of serious side effects. Most HGH users wouldn’t be able to continue for more than two years even if they religiously cycle it off for a few months.
MK-677 on the other hand seems to be safer in the long run.
Clinical studies have been conducted on healthy men for 2 years with no serious sides. A clinical study with aging men is being planned soon. But based on anecdotal reviews, it definitely seems safer than exogenous GH.
Closing thoughts on Nutrobal
If you are considering using HGH for performance enhancement, you’d want to try MK-677 before you opt for the more expensive and riskier exogenous GH route.
