For an optimal hormonal profile, estrogen control is imperative for both sexes. Irregularly high estrogen levels can produce excess body fat retention, water weight, and potentially other deleterious effects. Moreover, modern innovations, such as plastics, can release estrogen-like compounds in our bodies, xenoestrogens or phthalates in the case of plastics. The estrogen our bodies produce is tightly regulated, but it can be altered by intervention. One potential way is with 7-methoxyflavone.
Flavones, particularly 7-methoxyflavone, may inhibit aromatase, increase muscle hypertrophy, and enhance exercise tolerance. The latter 2 effects may also be a result of estrogen control. Estro-7 features a complete dose of 7-methoxyflavone as well as BioPerine for optimal flavone absorption.
7-Methoxyflavone is a component of Zornia brasiliensis and other plants with potential endocrine modulating effects.
- Several studies have observed 7-methoxyflavone to inhibit aromatase in vitro.
- Skeletal muscle cells have also been observed to grow in the presence of methoxyflavones
- Mice exposed to painful stimuli are more tolerant of that pain when consuming 7-methoxyflavone
- As a dietary supplement, take 1 serving (1 capsule) up to twice daily with food.
