Ibutamoren is a growth hormone secretagogue, which means it stimulates the pituitary gland to release stored growth hormone to the body for use. By using growth hormone secretors, the body increases production of its own growth hormone. As a result, the body repairs and rejuvenates itself over time, which slows down the aging process. Peptide therapies usually have a “loading” period of 3-6 months before full effects are noticed and can be used indefinitely with little to no side-effects for long-term use.
Ibutamoren is orally administered, which makes it unique from other secretagoues prescribed by TeleWellnessMD providers, such as GHRP 2, GHRP 6 and sermorelin, which are all administered by injection and cannot be absorbed orally.
Ibutamoren remains active in the body for a longer period of time compared to injectable secretagoues, GHRP 2 or GHRP 6. Ibutamoren requires only a once daily dose at bedtime and remains active for roughly 24 hours in the body, whereas GH levels remain elevated for about 90 minutes after administering a GHRP 2 or GHRP 6 injection.
One clinical study showed that ibutamoren can be more effective the longer it is taken. The study measured IGF-1 levels in the blood, which is an indirect measure of growth hormone levels. The study results showed the following increases in IGF-1 levels:
- At 2 weeks, subjects had an increase of 30% in IGF-1 levels
- At 6 months, subjects had an increase of 60% in IGF-1 levels
- At 12 months, subjects had an increase of 72% in IGF-1 levels
Like some of its injectable secretagouge cousins, GHRP 2 and GHRP 6, ibutamoren also causes an increase in the hormone that stimulates hunger, ghrelin. Although ibutamoren can cause an increase in hunger, typically ibutamoren use increases calorie deposition into the muscle instead of fat (due to the accompanied increase of the growth hormone) This hunger side effect tends to lessen when ibutamoren is taken at bedtime or with a large meal.
Ibutamoren can also help people who have difficulty sleeping. It has been shown to increase the amount of time spent in stage 4 deep sleep by 50%, as well as REM sleep by 20%. The more time spent in the deep sleep the more recovery and repair the body can accomplish. Many scientists believe REM sleep plays an important role in cognitive functioning and our overall mental health and wellbeing, hence more time spent in the REM cycle can also be beneficial.
Other health benefits of increasing growth hormone include: increased bone density, improved completion, increased energy, lower cholesterol, increased strength, increased lean muscle and decreased body fat.
Ibutamoren can be used in conjunction with other injectable secretagogues such as sermorelin, GHRP 2 and GHRP 6 for an even greater effect.
