How does it work?
5-Methyl-7-Methoxy-Isoflavone is a naturally-derived non-hormonal anabolic and anti-catabolic compound known as a flavone. It has been shown to decrease cortisol levels, increase protein synthesis, and improve overall recovery from exercise.

Who is it used for?
5-Methyl-7-Methoxy-Isoflavone is suitable for anyone wanting to gain muscle size and strength without adversely affecting their hormone levels or health. Strength and power athletes (such as rugby players or sprinters), bodybuilders, or those interested in improving their physical appearance will likely benefit from supplementation with 5-Methyl-7-Methoxy-Isoflavone.

How does it work?
During the search for new anabolics in the 1970's, researchers strived to develop an anabolic without steroid status. In 1977 a Hungarian company filed a patent for a new and revolutionary flavone called 5-methyl-7-methoxy-isoflavone. It works by increasing protein synthesis and nitrogen retention in much the same way steroids do, but without the androgenic side-effects. Patented by pharmaceutical experts Chinoin (US Patent # 4,163,746), 5-methyl-7-methoxyisoflavone is designed to promote muscle growth while at the same time increasing fat loss.

For various commercial reasons nothing was ever done with this compound when it was first developed. However, after 20 years, patent protection is lost and anyone can copy the product using the exact methods detailed in the patent (patents have to list exact manufacturing technique).

Once the patent expired, Methoxy quickly became popular with many livestock producers and still is now. It packed on massive amounts of lean muscle in animals in a short time, allowing farmers to enjoy record profits. With livestock, after just 30 days on Methoxy, gains in weight average 8-15% in calfs, 7-10% in cattle, 8-20% in poultry and 10-20% in rabbits. All gains were mostly lean muscle tissue. Experts now consider Methoxy as one of the most effective anabolic agents currently available. What's more, the patent shows that it's free from "androgenic or liver-damaging side effects".
How do I use it?
The recommended serving size of 5-methyl-7-methoxy-isoflavone is 300-400 milligrams taken in 2-3 split dosages (100-200 milligrams 2-3 times daily). 5-methyl-7-methoxy-isoflavone is a powerful compound, and should not be taken continuously. Instead, most supplement experts recommend that you take it for 4 weeks, leave 1 week of rest, and then start again.

What results can I expect?
Recent university research, published in the prestigious journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, shows that combining Methoxy with a proper diet and regular training programme will help you build muscle while SIMULTANEOUSLY shedding fat [1]. Using a sophisticated technique for measuring body composition known as DEXA, results showed that the Methoxy group added muscle more than three times faster than the control group. Subjects using the placebo put on almost 2 pounds of fat, while those using the Methoxy lost almost three pounds of fat. Although there is much research still to be done, the data so far indicates that 5-methyl-7-methoxy-isoflavone is a highly effective and promising supplement.

What can it be combined with?
5-methyl-7-methoxy-isoflavone works very well by itself. However, because it increases protein synthesis, you may notice even greater results when you combine 5-methyl-7-methoxy-isoflavone with a high-quality whey protein. Some experts also believe that Beta-Ecdysterone works synergistically with 5-methyl-7-methoxy-isoflavone to increase protein synthesis, maintain a positive nitrogen balance and keeping your body in an anabolic state. Although no studies so far have tested this combination, many bodybuilders and athletes report impressive results.
