Focused Nutrition has a full range of S.A.R.M.S but despite perceptions, their Elite MK-677 is technically not a S.A.R.M but instead a growth hormone secretagogue – a powerful stimulator of your body’s growth hormone levels.
The Power of Growth Hormone
Growth hormone has long been prized by bodybuilders due to its distinctive effects such as enhancing fat loss, increasing muscle fullness, improving recovery and even restoring a youthful appearance to your skin. While there are supplements out there which use ingredients that stimulate GH release, nothing comes as close to the powerful effects that can be experienced by those using this.
Studies have shown that this compound can help combat diet-induced muscle loss via enhancing not just GH but also IGF-1 levels while other trials have shown its ability to boost fat loss and increase lean mass.
How Does it Work?
MK-677 is a selective agonist of the ghrelin receptor or growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHRS). Ghrelin is a hormone produced in the gastrointestinal system that regulates appetite and stimulates growth hormone. Growth hormone (GH) is a hormone released from the pituitary gland in the brain which regulates cellular growth, carbohydrate-protein-lipid metabolism and water-electrolyte balance. Research has shown that MK produces sustained increases of GH and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) without impacting cortisol.
Quite simply, Elite MK-677 offers those unable or unwilling to use growth hormone a pathway to stimulating GH which has been shown to be beneficial in clinical studies conducted with human subjects.
