Not sure if this is the right place for this but I recently started taking mk677 for tendonitis, and the pain in my elbows literally vanished overnight. I know that sounds crazy but I just wanted to share the experience to anyone suffering from this.
I went from not really benching in over a year and 155 for a couple reps would have me doing legs only for the next two weeks, to benching 265 for a couple reps. Basically overnight.
The stuff I have is 35 mg a capsule which I’m reading is very high. So I’ve cut the cap in half doing I guess 17.5 mg before bed.
I believe the quality is 100% there as I can be absolutely reckless with my workout routine and have no pain the next day. It also makes me really lethargic feeling. More so mentally than physically I think. Not taking nsaids. No Tylenol. Just fish oil, my trt dose and mk677.
I believe its a ghrelin secretagogue. Or it mimics ghrelin and binds to those receptors. And through ghrelin causes a releases in growth hormone and igf-1.
Does anyone know how serious the potential insulin resistance is if only running for a couple monthes? Supposed to take on an empty stomach and not eat before or after for an hour or two to not have any insulin resistance build up. Thing is I don’t ever have an empty stomach.
Dunno if anyone’s tried it, but there’s alot of reports on Reddit and other places of people running it for a couple monthes. Not everyone has the same success with tendon strength and tendonitis that I’ve had. I have not read of any serious adverse effects anywhere.
sides that seem consistent with HGH usage. Tingly fingers or extremities, swelling of ankles (fluid retention)
I think HGH is no doubt superior in that this compound probably doesn’t cause the big pulses nesescary for most of the benefits. I’ve read that the increase in HGH and igf-1 is around 50-80% from your natrual state. There are some research papers publishes on the compound that report this but it’s definitely dosage related. Low dose like 10 mg causes mostly HGH with little igf-1 but higher like 25 causes almost equal increases in igf-1 and HGH, but anything past this very quickly reaches diminishing returns on any further increases.
Anyone else know much about this or potential long term risks?
