Oral Growth Hormone Release
Looking for a potent GH release that doesn’t involve needles and frustrating timing schedules? Ibutamoren (mk-677) may just fit the bill… People have always been a huge fan of Ipamorelin and CJC1295 (modified GRF 129) when it comes to increasing Growth Hormone levels. But those two peptides require injections, and to really see benefits, you have to inject it multiple times a day, and plan your meals out accordingly (you want to be fairly fasted before using these, and then wait for at least 30 minutes before eating afterwards). So for those of you who don’t want to jack with all that, and want a continuous, 24 hour increase in GH, IGF1 and IGFBP3, then Ibutamoren, an orally active GH secretagogue may be just the ticket.
The benefits of Growth Hormone on metabolism and lean body mass are undeniable. I also go to great lengths pointing out that I don’t think GH is much of a muscle builder per se, and that its ultimate benefit comes down to controlling, or rather offsetting, the detrimental effects of insulin on body composition, when it comes to excessive fat gain. Insulin and IGF1 are amazing at increasing protein synthesis, no doubt, but the real benefits after extended trials of anything that increases GH levels seem to come more in the way of increased leanness, and decreased fat storage.
For many, the use of HGH is not only too costly, but is not a good route to go if overall health and longevity is of utmost importance. HGH, injected exogenously, can create a really awesome environment for body transformation, but with that comes the price of shutting down the HPA production of natural pulses, which interferes with an overall healthier body, for lack of a more scientific term. HGH is great at doing what it does, but leaving it “on” for 8 hours post injection, can lead to insulin resistance and water retention imbalances that ultimately take their toll on the body, especially if someone is using large doses. GH is not supposed to be a 24 hour ON button. It is supposed to peak and drop, along with other hormones, to create the perfect environment for longterm health and antiaging benefits.
Enter the injectable GH releasers such as Ipamorelin and GRF. These are very, very good at getting the job done when it comes to increasing the body’s own production of Growth Hormone. The biggest problem, though, is that to really take advantage of the benefits, and to fully utilize the peaks, a person would have to inject multiple times a day, and plan out their diet accordingly (too much food in the gut will dampen the release and peak of the GH). But with an orally active version like Ibutamoren, a single dose can increase benefits throughout the entire day, without the need for carrying around needles, watching your diet before and after injections, and all that crap that goes with playing with GH releasers. And the results from the studies that have been seen, show promising results.
