7-Methoxyflavone, according to wikipedia, is an all natural, non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor which effectively reduces estrogen that normally increases when coming off a cycle. 7-Methoxyflavanone has many other names, such as 7-MF(a short form), 4H-1-Benzopyran-4-one, 7-methoxy-2-phenyl etc.
There is no so much information about 7-Methoxyflavone on the internet or any written documents.
7-Methoxyflavone works as an aromatase inhibitor
So what is aromatase? A major mass limiting factor for anyone looking to gain size is the testosterone destroying enzyme known as aromatase. Aromatase is a genetically regulated enzyme that binds to the most potent, masculine, anabolic compound in your body… and feminizes it. Yes, aromatase binds to testosterone and other male muscle building androgens and converts them into female estrogens. However, 7-MF may effectively bind to and render inactive the aromatase enzyme. This is important because by blunting the effects of aromatase, estrogen concentrations decline, more LH is secreted in response, and the body responds with a surge in anabolic testosterone production.Anti-estrogen ingredients work by blocking estrogen production so there is a higher testosterone to estrogen ratio in the blood. The body thinks there is more testosterone and that means bigger, stronger muscles
7-methoxyflavone (7-MF) however is NOT to be confused with 5-methyl-7-methoxy-isoflavone (aka methoxyISOflavone). You may remember methoxyISOflavone as the plant extract that was locked up in a 30 year patent which finally expired in 1997. Fed to livestock it provided powerful anabolic effects, yet failed miserably when used by athletes trying to achieve the same.
7-methoxyflavone is an all natural ingredient with strong aromatase inhibiting properties, superior bioavailability, and strong resistance to hepatic metabolism/breakdown.
