Ibutamoren (MK-677) 10mg Capsules (Prescription Product)


Ibutamoren (MK-677) sold by Mint Pharmacy is pharmaceutical-grade, unlike risky, untested versions. Find out if Ibutamoren (MK-677) can help you lose weight, build lean muscle, burn fat, and sleep better for about 1/10 the cost of other products thought to produce similar effects. Often confused with Human Growth Hormone (HGH) injections and steroids, Ibutamoren is not a hormone nor a steroid. 10 mg capsules. We must obtain a prescription from your provider before we can fill your order. 

Experience the anti-aging effects* of Ibutamoren capsules

Up until recently, active-aging (anti-aging) products have costs thousands of dollars a month, making them only accessible to celebrities and the ultra-wealthy. Besides their steep price tag, some like synthetic (recombination) Human Growth Hormone (abbreviated as rhGH or HGH) require injection which can discourage those seeking its claimed benefits.

HGH for use in anti-aging is also illegal. Synthetic HGH is only approved by the FDA for growth hormone deficiency. However, that hasn't stopped celebrities like A Rod, Sylvester Stallone and Suzanne Somers from shelling out thousands a month for HGH anti-aging treatment.

On the other hand, Ibutamoren (Ibutamoren mesylate, MK-677) may hold promise as an alternative and affordable way to capture the anti-aging benefits of HGH that celebrities rave about.

Ibutamoren is taken orally, meaning you don't need costly or potentially painful injections to reap the benefits of increased growth hormone levels.

Ibutamoren sold by Mint Pharmacy is sourced from registered pharmaceutical distributors within the US. It requires a prescription. Mint Pharmacy is a US-licensed and certified pharmacy. Beware: untested and uncertified Ibutamoren is widely sold under the guise "for laboratory research only and not for human consumption." Those products could be unsafe. 

What is Ibutamoren?

Ibutamoren is a Growth Hormone (GH) secretagogue, which means it stimulates the secretion of natural growth hormone by the pituitary gland. Ibutamoren also contributes to increased blood levels of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). Natural growth hormone (somatotropin) and IGF-1 regulate and stimulate:

  • Bone and muscle repair and growth
  • Cell growth, repair, and rejuvenation
  • Metabolism
  • Sleep
  • Body mass and composition

What are the benefits* of Ibutamoren?

Weight reduction, improved body appearance and physical fitness: Because Ibutamoren helps increase lean muscle mass1 and speeds up muscle and tissue recovery, it's popular among athletes and anyone who wants to stay fit. Increased IGF-1 is important for building healthy bone mass.2 The result is increased strength. 

Anti-aging3: As we age, new cell production decreases. Ibutamoren may slow the signs of aging by stimulating new cell growth. Benefits may include younger-looking skin as skin cells regenerate and collagen is restored. 

Improved sleep and recovery:4 In a sleep study, Ibutamoren increased stage 4 sleep by about 50 percent and REM sleep by about 20 percent in participants. Sleep stages 3 and 4, called Slow Wave Cycle (SWC) or delta sleep are when the body repairs muscle and tissue, builds immunity, builds energy and grows.6 Rapid Eye Movement Sleep (REM) is when the brain processes information. REM sleep is important for learning and memory.7

How do I know if I need Ibutamoren?

Ibutamoren is only available with a prescription so you need a medical consultation. Health is a journey and you may consider Ibutamoren as a positive step along the way. Whether you're not feeling as strong or as healthy as you used to or you want to be proactive in your active-aging regime, a medical consultation can get you started.

A medical professional should review your health history and conduct tests including measuring hormone levels to see if you may benefit from Ibutamoren. Additionally, home hormone test kits are available if you want to begin your research at home.

Is Ibutamoren the same as Growth Hormone (GH)?

No. Ibutamoren, also known as MK-677, is not growth hormone for several reasons:

  • First, actual growth hormone (GH) is produced in the body. HGH used as a supplement is synthetic.
  • Ibutamoren works differently than synthetic HGH. Ibutamoren is a molecule that increases the secretion of natural growth hormone by the pituitary gland. Ibutamoren is classified as an orally-active nonpeptide growth hormone (GH) secretagogue. A secretagogue is a substance that promotes secretion.
  • Synthetic HGH is a lab-made version of what the body creates. It has a more potent effect than Ibutamoren and may produce stronger unwanted side effects than Ibutamoren.

Is Ibutamoren legal?

Yes and no. Ibutamoren is legal for human consumption only if purchased from a US-licensed pharmacy with a prescription. Ibutamoren sold without a prescription is not legal for human consumption. In those cases, Ibutamoren is sold under the guise of use "for research purposes in non-humans only." Those unverified drugs could put you at risk.

What is GH?

Growth hormone (somatotropin) is naturally produced in the pituitary gland and cannot be replicated in a lab. It is called somatotropin.

Does Ibutamoren slow aging?

Ibutamoren is not FDA-approved as an anti-aging medication. However, its use is growing as an off-label medication to increase collagen production, which can strengthen connective tissue and make skin look more youthful.  

Studies have shown positive results using Ibutamoren to help stop bone turnover (bone loss), increase growth velocity in children with growth hormone deficiency and increase lean mass in obese adults and patients in wasting states (significant muscle loss due to illness).

What does IGF-1 do?

Insulin-growth factor 1 is a growth hormone responsible for the growth of bones and body tissue. It is important for muscle and tissue repair. Strength and muscle building through exercise occurs when muscles are broken down and then repaired. Medical research suggests that IGF-1 and GH can produce independent effects on the body and also have a synergistic effect. 1
