The SARM That’s Not Actually a SARM
However, don’t be too disappointed just yet. There are some supplements out there that are commonly grouped into the same category of SARMs that in fact do increase growth hormone.
For instance, the “SARM” MK-677 has often been categorized into the same realm as SARMs, when, in fact, it’s a growth hormone secretagogue. Now, what does this mean exactly?
Well, a secretagogue is basically a compound that signals the body to produce a desired effect. In this instance, MK-677 is telling the body to produce more growth hormone. This is actually a lot safer than injecting exogenous growth hormone into the body, as doing that can damage the body’s natural ability to produce growth hormone on its own. What MK-677 can do is add to the already existing supply of growth hormone in your body.
However, HGH (Human Growth Hormone) isn’t that potent for muscle growth. So for those with simply muscle-building goals, it is recommended to stack MK-677 with another SARM.
HGH is primarily responsible for increasing longevity. These include increasing collagen and bone strength, endurance, and fat loss capabilities. So for those with more longevity-based goals in mind, opt for MK-677.
Remember, HGH isn’t everything. So if you have a wide range of goals, especially where one is to build muscle, stack multiple SARMS together along with MK-677 so that you can get a wider range of benefits.
