Methoxy (also known as 5-Methyl-7-Methoxy-Isoflavone, Methoxyisoflavone & Methoxyflavone) is a naturally-derived non-hormonal anabolic compound known as a flavone. Found primarily in soy beans, Methoxy is believed to help with protein synthesis, reduce body fat and promote endurance. These effects were originally described in a US Patent for the ingredient in the early 1970s. At least one study has been able to show that those taking Methoxy seem to have improved body composition over those who didn’t take Methoxy characterized by increased lean muscle mass. Strength and power athletes, bodybuilders, or those interested in improving their physical appearance may benefit from supplementation with 5-methyl-7-methoxy-Isoflavone when combining it with a suitable training programme & diet. Methoxy is best taken at doses of 800mg/day as was the case in the aforementioned study. It can be well stacked with protein powders, mass gainers and general testosterone and growth hormone support supplements.
