What is Chrysin?

Chrysin is the chemical name for a type of isoflavone(organic chemical),it is chemically extracted from the plant Passiflora coerulea. It is also present in Pinus aristata, Prunus domestica and Passiflora coerulea and Honeycomb. Chrysin also has mild anti-inflammation and anti-oxidation properties.
It enhances testosterone production by minimizing the conversion or "aromatizing" of testosterone hormone to estrogen. When blood levels of testosterone in your body reach a certain point, testosterone begins converting to other less anabolic chemicals,estrogen. Aside from this lowering your testosterone levels, this conversion to estrogen can also lead to some of those annoying estrogenic side effects like Gynacomastia (developing female breast in male). When supplementing with Chrysin your pituitary gland would not shut down interfering with your natural testosterone production. Several studies conducted on Chrysin have shown it to increase blood serum levels of testosterone by 30% by inhibiting testosterone conversion to estrogen.It is also able to stimulate nitric oxide release from endothelial cells leading to vascular cGMP accumulation and subsequent endothelium dependent vascular relaxation. Chrysin stimulated nitric oxide release is calcium independent and possibly mediated via PI3-kinase.Chrysin may work synergistically with Tribulus Terrestris to further enhance testosterone production while actively decreasing estrogen production.

What is the effective dosage of Chrysin supplementation?

The effective dosage of chrysin supplementation is 1-4 grams per day.

What are the benefits of Chrysin supplementation?

• Chrysin basically reduces estrogen levels by cutting down on its conversion from is an anti-aromatizase agent.
• It is an ideal supplement to take in conjunction with other testosterone boosters in order to prevent estrogenic side effects.athletes can use it in their post cycle therapy (after steroid used)
• It also has mild anti-inflammation and anti-oxidation properties.

What are the side effects of Chrysin supplementation?

They are no known side effects of chrysin at moderate use. But more studies are required to explore all aspects of chrysin as supplementation.
