Flavones are the latest big supplement to hit the market. Methoxyisoflavone is a non-hormonal anabolic compound that has been shown to reduce cortisol levels, increase protein synthesis and improve recovery from exercise.
During tests that led to the issuing of a patent for methoxyisoflavone the following findings were noted:
1. It was found to be more anabolic than anabolic steroids without any of the side effects.
2. It increased lean body mass significantly within 30 days while producing no androgenic effect.
3. Cortisol levels were reduced and nitrogen levels increased considerably.
Flavones can be safely taken by men and women who want to boost their lean muscle gains without risking the hazards associated with taking anabolic steroids. A dose of 400-800 mg can be taken daily, split over two doses. Its effects can be enhanced by taking it with protein due to the ability of protein to force nutrients into muscle cells.
Methoxy can also be stacked safely with ZMA to maximise testosterone gains, or ecdysterone to increase protein synthesis, maintain a positive nitrogen balance and keep the body in an anabolic state.
