MK-677 isn’t a SARM. I thought I’d get that shocker out of the way at the start of this MK-677 review for you.
What I’m going to do here is tell you exactly what is, and how it works to bulk muscle and strength and bone. I’ll talk to you about typical (realistic) MK-677 results over your first cycle, what dosage range you need to be using, and how to create a basic MK-677 stack.
You’ll also learn about potential side effects, and where you can buy the MK-677 where it’s pure, guaranteed, and well priced.
What Is MK-677 & How Does It Work?
SARM stands for “selective androgen receptor modulator”. So it selectively modulates messages to androgen receptors, which help to build muscle and cut fat.
MK-677 doesn’t work like that though. MK-677, also known as Nutrobal or Ibutamoren, mimics a hormone called ghrelin. This growth stimulating hormone increases plasma availability of HGH (human growth hormone) which manages the signals that tell muscles and bones in the body to grow.
But elevating HGH also leads to more production of something called IGF-1. This also tells your body to build more muscle, and to do it faster. But more than that, it also stops the body adding fat.
SARMs are not like anabolic steroids. Although it will send messages telling your body to grow, it won’t produce spectacular results unless it’s backed up by a very progressive gym routine, basically you have to push yourself hard and back it up with great diet. If you do that, then even using MK-677 on its own can produce pretty spectacular results though.
MK-677 Cycle And How To Dose
So the first thing you need to learn before starting your first MK-677 cycle is how much of this stuff do you need to take each day to get the results you need.
The problem with all SARMs is that there is no real-world evidence for dosing. There are sporadic studies in animals and humans, and a lot of anecdotal MK-677 bodybuilding forum information about dosing it, but that’s it.
But generally, the dose ranges are from 10 mg at the low end through to 30 mg at the high end. Higher than that doesn’t seem to produce the same incremental results.
In terms of an MK-677 cycle, on its own I’d suggest you can push this for 10 weeks. Because it is not an androgen modulator it won’t hit your testosterone levels. There are side effects, which I will cover in a moment, but most of them are minor.
So put together, your initial test MK-677 cycle should look like this:
- Dose MK-677 at between 10 and 30 mg per day. You could do this all the way through, or you could progress it, say 10 mg the first two weeks, then increase it by 5 mg two weeks
- Stick to an initial cycle of around 10 weeks. You could push it to 12 weeks which would allow you to hit that maximum 30 mg dose
- You won’t need a PCT (post cycle therapy) supplement using MK-677 in a cycle on its own because it doesn’t decrease testosterone levels
Creating A Basic MK-677 Stack
Stacking SARMs is a huge topic on its own, and I don’t have the time to go through it all here in this brief MK-677 review.
But what I can do is give you an example of the bulking stack that I have used successfully for quite some time now.
Over one cycle this can really pack on bulk and strip fat. The MK-677 Stack, dosage, and cycle details are:
- MK-677 dosed at 15 mg three weeks then 20 mg three weeks
- Ostarine dosed at 25 mg for the whole cycle
- RAD-140 dosed at 7 mg three weeks then 10 mg for three weeks
- The total cycle length is six weeks
- PCT break between cycles is a minimum of four weeks
You will need a PCT supplement because RAD-140 Testolone is highly suppressive, especially at higher doses of 10 mg or more. You could use Nolvadex, but if you suffer significant testosterone level drops then switch to Clomid.
MK-677 Results From One Cycle
So let me now just talk through my own personal MK-677 results after one cycle on its own, and also as part of the bulking stack, I just talked through.
If you work hard, push yourself as hard as you can several times a week in the gym, and back it up with cardio work outside. Then you put in excellent nutrition and rest, then you can get the following MK-677 results in just one 10-week cycle:
- Significant increase in lean muscle mass above what can be achieved naturally
- The muscle you pack on will be harder
- Muscle growth and repair faster
- Your overall recovery times will dramatically improve (mine were 50% up)
- You’ll feel stronger through ligament, muscle and bone improvement
- Skin and hair will improve due to the regenerative nature of this SARM
- You will sleep better as well
You’re going to have to work hard. This won’t come free. Hit the gym more often, push yourself harder. You’re really going to have to do some work but will see the results in one MK-677 cycle I’m telling you. When you’re stacking it, those results are even more pronounced.
A great bit of advice here is to do before and after photos yourself. That way you can check your progress because it’s easy to forget as the body development you’ll see will be so incremental.
MK-677 Side Effects
So look, I’ve covered all the positives of using MK-677 for bodybuilding. You’ll get great results in just one cycle. But there are some side effects that you need to be aware of.
The main one is that you will feel hungry. This could be detrimental if you’re eating the wrong thing because you will put on weight. But if it’s managed and channeled, then it can help you to eat lots of protein and nutrients that will fuel your energy levels and muscle growth.
The other thing is that using MK-677 can raise your blood pressure. For some people hardly anything at all, but for a few people, it will be significant. If you have elevated blood pressure already, then you need to monitor yourself carefully. Get yourself checked out before you start the cycle, and then at the end of the cycle to see what the changes are.
Where To Buy Pure MK-677 That Works
As with all supplements, SARMs are only going to work for you and be safe if you can get 100% pure powder, liquid, or capsules.
So what you’re looking for are SARMs vendors that only sell guaranteed 100% pure SARMs. The guarantee is that they have independent third-party lab testing done on each batch, and they publish those results on the website.
I have to warn you that it’s got far harder to buy SARMs in the USA right now.
Regulatory pressure and FDA scrutiny, the pandemic, inflation, shipping costs, China banning companies making and exporting SARMs, the war in Eastern Europe, it all rushed the SARMs industry.
Nearly every company I used to buy SARMs from has folded in the past 12 months.
These are the people left standing who do still offer high-purity SARMs at fair prices.
The best place to buy high-purity SARMs liquid and powder, Chemyo were always good quality and great value, but in the smaller market place are now the best.
For a start, you’ll get larger 50 mL dropper bottles with a higher total dose for not much more than the substantially smaller 30 mL dropper bottles everyone else tells you.
MK-677 costs just $69.99 for a dropper bottle it contains 25 mg/mL. So, a total dose of 1250 mg for your money.
They also sell SARMs powder. A 1 g bag of MK-677 is $59.99. A little cheaper than the liquid, but it shows you what a great deal the liquid is.
They also do paired SARMs. Not full stacks, but two bottles that complement each other (bulking/cutting) at a slight discount.
MK-677 is teamed up with Andarine and YK-11, both of which are perfect for building larger and harder muscles.
Swisschems is now the main SARMs company that I use for high quality SARMs, PCT supplements, and peptides.
Swisschems is long-established and high-quality SARMs seller. They are definitely the best places to buy MK-677.
They don’t sell SARMs powder, just sublingual, suspended liquid SARMs. The quality is completely pure, and unlike nearly every other SARMs seller, the SARMs are manufactured in the USA for that extra peace of mind.
But that quality and local construction does mean you will pay more. 15 mL of liquid at 25 mg/mL (total dose 305 mg) will cost $49.99. But you do also get free shipping on orders over $75.
Here’s a little trick to get 15% off the already dramatically lowered prices of Swiss Chems capsules (they’ve actually dropped in price by about 40% in the past year, bringing them close to the prices of liquid)
1.Make use of the 5% cashback scheme that the company runs.
2.Use the coupon code gyula10 each time you checkout to get another 10% off.
3. SARMs Alternatives
I’m also going to mention SARMs alternatives here. Although generally, natural bodybuilding supplement aren’t as potent, these ones are very good.
Made by a company called Brutal Force, they make a range of supplements which are constructed to mimic the effects of SARMs.
IBUTALEAN mimics the effects of MK-677 Ibutamoren. Completely safe natural to use, it will help to elevate and accelerate your SARMs results.
There are three strategies for using these SARMs alternatives:
- Use them on their own as they are better than natural bodybuilding
- Use them stacked underneath the SARMs stack to amplify your results
- Run them post cycle to keep getting better results than you can naturally
In terms of pricing, they are $60 each. Put three in your shopping cart and you’ll get the third one free as well. Plus, you’ll get free global shipping.
However, I’d advise you to use a stack. You’ll save up to 50% on doing this, and you can then run the stacked underneath the SARMs stack for maximum returns.
IBUTALEAN is part of the cutting stack the company make. Crucially, it doesn’t increase your appetite like Ibutamoren, hence its presence in the cutting stack.
UPDATED TO SAY: Proven Peptides is no longer trading. Also avoid Umbrella Labs, Reaper Labz, and Pure Rawz due to quality issues.
Also: As of March 2022 Science.bio and Rats Army have also stopped trading. A disaster, but Swisschems do offer the same level of purity and pricing.
Rats Army – CLOSED
Second on my list is Rats Army. I only discovered them about six months ago, and are placed a second order two weeks ago. Purity is high and guaranteed through independent third-party lab test reports as you would expect. On top of that, the prices are good.
MK-677 is available as a sublingual liquid. 30 mL, dosage 30 mg/mL, costs just under $60.
One thing I like about these guys is that you can buy the SARMs flavored. That means you can use them on the go, and you don’t get any detrimental effects from absorbing them sublingually under the tongue.
The other reason I love Rats Army is that they also sell peptides, nootropics, and even prohormones. So whatever your bodybuilding supplement needs, these guys are in “one-stop shop”.
Overall, this is a SARMs seller I expect to grow in strength over the next year. Because of the prices and goods supplied, it seems that they are somehow getting around the Chinese SARMs ban, or are manufacturing them locally. However they are doing it, they are offering high-quality SARMs at a good price.
