5-methyl-7methoxy-isoflavone IS NOT 7-methoxyflavone!!!
What is 5-methyl-7methoxy-isoflavone?
Methoxy-isoflavone is supposed to increase protein synthesis. It is stronger than ipriflavone and weaker than ecdysterone. Methoxyisoflavone and ipriflavone supposedly work through different pathways than ecdysterone so stacking them with ecdysterone should be of some benefit. The actually results from methoxy-isoflavone have been a little disappointing. Only recently have ecdy products started to get good reviews. I’m surprised they’re not stacked with methoxy-isoflavone.
7-methoxyflavone on the other hand likely to be less disappointing. It has been shown to be a potent aromatase inhibitor. It has a completely different purpose from 5-methyl-7methoxy-isoflavone. It also seems to do what it was intended to do.
How does 5-methyl-7methoxy-isoflavone Work?
The first thing you want to notice here is «methyl». This product will take a pass through your liver, a rather rough one at that, before becoming active in your system. I am not sure about isoflavone’s case, but most methylated compounds are created to avoid substance ban(which is by chemical name). Hence why Epitiostanol is illegal, but 2a,3a-epithio-17a-methyl-5a-androstan-17b-ol is legal(under the name of Havoc and or Epistane).
It’s hard to say why a company would ever put a methylated compound in a PCT…a PCT is for use after a harsh, usually hormonal cycle. Most hormonal products are just methylated versions of ban anabolic steroids and designer steroids. Going from one cycle of a methylated product directly into another is, in simple terms, somewhat nuts. This is an all out assault on the liver and you probably want to get blood work done at this point.
