As we all know, Chrysin, or 5,7-dihydroxyflavone, is an isoflavone found in significant quantities in Passiflora and is known to inhibit aromatase, the enzyme responsible for the conversion of testosterone into estradiol and androstenedione into estrone. Chrysin has been used by bodybuilders to boost testosterone via aromatase inhibition. Yet, chrysin does not get prominent recommendation when aromatase inhibitors are sought. Why is this so?
- Because it is typically underdosed (upwards of 1.5g per day is required)?
- Because most users for whom it did not work used it without an absorption enhancer such as Naringin, Bioperine/Piperine?
What is your take on Chrysin? If you have used it, did it work for you? How did you dose it? Would you prefer to combine Chrysin with other natural aromatase inhibitors/estrogen modulators such as quercetin, Diindolemethane (DIM), (I3C), Resveratrol, Calcium D-Glutarate, Nettle Root, and so on?
