    Amentoflavone


    Amentoflavone

    Mood/CNS effects

    There are a whole host of studies examining the effects of Amentoflavone on various neurological endpoints. Without going into each one individually, research highlights will be presented.
    Amentoflavone interacts with the GABA-A receptor by acting as a negative modulator. This would produce a central stimulant effect by inducing wakefulness/alertness. Amentoflavone uptake into the CNS is limited by P-glycoprotein, an efflux pump that pumps specific compounds back outside of the CNS. There are numerous ways to overcome the P-glycoprotein transporter; a very well-documented one is by consuming grapefruit or its constituents.
    In addition, amentoflavone has demonstrated antidepressant and anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effects in vivo by interacting with not only the GABA-A receptor, but also the serotonin and alpha-adrenergic receptors. In fact, of all the tested constituents of St. John’s Wort (a known antidepressant/anti-anxiety plant), amentoflavone displayed the strongest anxiolytic activity.

    Fatty Acid Synthase Inhibition

    Fatty acid synthase, as the name implies, is responsible for the endogenous synthesis of fatty acids in humans. It is currently a drug target for metabolic syndrome. In at least three separate trials, amentoflavone has demonstrated the ability to inhibit fatty acid synthase, and thus fat production.

    Phosphodiesterase (PDE) Inhibition

    PDE is the enzyme responsible for breaking down cAMP/cGMP. cAMP/cGMP promote smooth muscle relaxation (vasodilation; this is how PDE5 inhibitors help with erectile dysfunction) and lipolysis. Indeed, Forskolin has documented lipolytic activity by increasing cAMP levels via increased cAMP production. PDE inhibition, as with amentoflavone, hits the opposite side of the coin: reduced cAMP breakdown. By increasing cAMP levels, amentoflavone can synergize with adrenergic agonists (i.e. b-agonists) because second messenger pathways follow the rule of amplification.
    Amentoflavone inhibits a broad array of PDE isoforms, and it is the most potent inhibitor out of all tested flavonoids in Ginkgo biloba. Further, of all tested constituents of Allanblackia monticola, Amentoflavone was the strongest vasodilator, inhibiting norepinephrine-induced vasoconstriction by a whopping 35%.

    Muscular Strength and Endurance

    One well-documented mechanism of increasing exercise performance is vasodilation, which helps supply (oxygen; waste removal) meet the demand of exercising muscle tissue (hypoxia; metabolic waste accumulation). Amentoflavone has a well-documented effect on vasodilation as described above.
    In addition to this, Amentoflavone provides a relatively unique mechanism for increasing power output: increased Ca2+ release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. By increasing intracellular Ca2+ downstream of the signal for muscle contraction, binding to troponin-C is increased and the force of muscular contraction, on a cell-by-cell basis, also increases.
    Caffeine acts via a similar mechanism to increase strength output, and researchers found that not only does Amentoflavone likely bind to the caffeine-binding site, but it does so with 20 times greater potency than caffeine.

    Insulin Sensitivity/GDA - PTP1B inhibition

    PTP1B is an enzyme involved in insulin signaling, and inhibition of PTP1B is being investigated as a possible treatment for obesity and diabetes. PTP1B inhibition will chiefly improve insulin sensitivity by augmenting insulin’s actions within the cell at a lower circulating level of insulin. This is a fairly novel approach to improving insulin sensitivity and will continue to be investigated.

    Dyslipidemia

    Amentoflavone has been shown in vivo to reduce circulating lipids (LDL/TG), making it of further benefit to obesity/diabetes/metabolic syndrome.

    Excited to try this out pre-workout now.


    Assuming that taking in EAA's (AminoIV) would somewhat inhibit the fat-loss benefits of this?
    But the energy, focus, and strength boost should still be there?

    Increased Ca2+ release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum


    Hey man, I tried to pm you but your inbox is full so I'll just post it here instead:I have a pretty uniqe goal but I think you would know how to do it. I want to increase Ca2+ release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum as much as possible because this would increase contracts frequency and this would help me incredible a lot especially since I am a sprinter. Bottom line, do you know supplements (other than caffeine since its banned by WADA) that will do this and that I can get a hold of, I can't find a pure source for amentoflavone anywhere. I really need your help, especially since i'm only 18.Thanks a lot in advance man!

    Any chance AS will make this ingredient a product in the future? I like the ingredient but don't always want to use Uncut and in the future I'm obviously not going to be constantly running Norcodrene.

    In the mean time, I've been using AppNut's other product (non-stim) just so that I can have some amentoflavone in on non-UnCut days but that's not really cost effective.

    Definitely an ingredient to have in the arsenal, I believe it also increases the capsases 3 and 9 causing apoptosis is certain cell lines through down regulation on bcl-2.

    Would the increase in strength result in a increase in muscle building or is it just a temporary thing?

    Any stims we should BOLO to not stack with amentoflavone?

    I picked up two bottles with the AS sale and I plan on starting them next week for an 8 week run with EC leading Into summer. I was impressed by 4 weeks of norco so I'm very hopeful for an additional 4

    Is there any drug interaction in conjunction with amentoflavone administration?

    Sounds like a thing worth to try. Was thinking on Katana pwo, looks solid.

    Due to the antagonistic effects on angiogenesis from amentoflavone and (transdermal) ursolic acid respectively, would it be ideal to run them separately for maximum benefit?

    Nah, neither matters unless you have a pre-cancerous condition

    Given that both affect the GABAergic system, would it be advisable to avoid combining picamilon and amentoflavone?

    Yes, take the picamilon away from when you dose your amentoflavone.

    They both act on GABA receptors and their interaction wouldn't be favorable. Other supplements to avoid near amento would be GABA but people don't really take that preworkout.

    Many thanks, I suspected they might interactive negatively but thought it best to consult someone with a better grasp of the two.

    None of these interactions would be bad per se. Just expect your picamilon or gaba not to work too well if you take them exactly with amentoflavone

    Do you know anything about Methoxy Amentoflavone form Coop?

    Does this not apply to oral ursolic acid?

    Found this

    in the present study we evaluated the efficacy of UA against tumor growth and angiogenesis in vivo and in vitro and investigated the underlying molecular mechanisms. We found that administration of UA significantly inhibited tumor volume but had no effect on body weight changes in CRC mice, suggesting that UA can suppress colon cancer growth in vivo without noticeable signs of toxicity. In addition, UA treatment reduced intratumoral microvessel density (MVD) in CRC mice, decreased the total number of blood vessels in the CAM model, and dose and time-dependently inhibited the proliferation, migration and tube formation of HUVECs, demonstrating UA's antitumor angiogenesis in vivo and in vitro. Moreover, UA treatment inhibited the expression of critical angiogenic factors, such as VEGF-A and bFGF. Furthermore, UA suppressed the activation of sonic hedgehog (SHH), STAT3, Akt and p70S6K pathways. Collectively, our findings suggest that inhibition of tumor angiogenesis via suppression of multiple signaling pathways might be one of the mechanisms whereby UA can be effective in cancer treatment

    Important for me since colon cancer runs on my mothers side of the family.

    These findings indicate that amentoflavone inhibits angiogenesis by disrupting the integrity of endothelial cells and by altering the endogenous factors that are required for the process of neovascularization.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/18298378/

    From what I am gathering, these two products should help inhibit angiogenesis. May I ask what led you to ask if they should be used with caution RE stimulating angiogenesis?
