Chrysin 500mg 30 capsules - 5,7-dihydroxyflavone from passionflower extract | Jarrow Formulas
Jarrow Formulas Chrysin (5,7-Dihydroxyflavone) is a bioflavonoid found in passion flower (Passiflora coerula), that promotes healthy testosterone levels and lean muscle mass by inhibiting aromatase, the enzyme that converts testosterone to estrogen. This is called aromatization, which is an unwanted process for those who want to increase muscle mass.
In older men, a rise in levels of the enzyme aromatase increases the rate of conversion of circulating testosterone into estrogen, decreasing available levels of testosterone. Aromatase, found in a variety of bodily tissues, including brain, adipose tissue, placenta, blood vessels, skin, bone, and gonads, specifically facilitates the conversion of testosterone into estradiol and androstenedione into estrone, affecting male sexuality and reproduction, as well as muscle mass, hair growth, bone density, and sense of well-being. This hormonal decrease is further exacerbated by exposure to estrogen-mimicking compounds in food, water and pollutants. Research has shown that the bioflavonoid, Chrysin, or 5,7-Dihydroxyflavone, can help inhibit the production of the aromatase enzyme, and thus help maintain healthy levels of testosterone.
Natural Aromatase Arrest
Chrysin is a naturally occurring flavone, a type of flavonoid found in passionflower, chamomile, certain types of mushrooms and honeycomb, and especially rich in honey and propolis.
Flavonoids, which are polyphenolic compounds which lend pigment to plants and flowers, act as chemical messengers, physiological regulators, and cell cycle inhibitors in plants; in humans, they also have a wide range of biological and pharmacological activity. Numerous studies have shown Chrysin to inhibit the aromatization of androstenedione and testosterone into estrogens. Chyrin’s strong aromatase inhibition has been shown to act in microsomes, human pre-adipocyte cells, adrenocortical cells, and more. A study performed in 2008 suggested that Chrysin acts by increasing sensitivity of certain testicular cells to cyclic AMP (cAMP) stimulation of steroid hormone synthesis.
Animal studies have shown Chrysin to support sperm motility and concentration, and healthy blood testosterone levels. A study in which Chrysin was administered to 2-year-old male rats for a period of 30 days found significant support of overall sexual performance in those given Chrysin, compared with controls. Those given Chrysin (1 mg/kg) exhibited healthy libido, healthier sperm count, greater fertilization potential, and greater litter size when interacting with females. Research has also shown Chrysin to support normal cell replication, helping promote normal cell division and defending healthy cells.
Healthy Cell Replication and Normal Levels of Inflammation
In addition to its role as an aromatase inhibitor, Chrysin has also been shown to support cardiovascular health, promote cardiocyte health (heart cells) and inhibit foam cell formation. It is increasingly recognized for its powerful antioxidant properties, and its ability to promote normal levels of inflammation. In a 2015 study, Chrysin supported normal inflammatory response to environmental toxins, as well as normal cytokine release. Chrysin has also been found to significantly suppress the cyclooxygenase protein and messenger RNA expression in a dose-dependent manner, in vitro and supports a normal immune response to seasonal symptoms.
By supporting healthy levels of the aromatase enzyme, which has been shown to rise with increasing age. In men, Jarrow Formulas’ Chrysin promotes healthy testosterone levels and helps maintain levels of inflammation in a normal range, providing a range of benefits for overall health.

Exercise and immunity: staying fit at home
When you are used to go to a gym to exercise and are forced to stay at home, it is good to know there are alternatives to gym workouts. Since most of those exercises are shown on short videos with an explanation we will not present much text this time , apart from explaining why exercise is so important for immune system.
PFAS pollutants causing turmoil
In October, nearly every construction project came to a grinding halt in the Netherlands, because not a single project except the smallest ones can be completed without excessive paper work or laboratory tests.
Why? The current legal threshold for PFAS, an abbreviation for perfluorinated alkylated substances has been set extremely low until the government is able to define a proper health limit for contaminated soil so as to prevent contamination of clean soil with more heavily contaminated soil.
If cemeteries hadn't been exempt from the rule, not a single dead body could have been interred, since PFAS-chemicals , also known as 'forever chemicals' have accumulated in our bodies to an extent that exceeds the legally set threshold, which is currently as low as the lowest possible detection level.
How to beat andropause, the condition that ails all elderly malesAndropause is a medical condition, similar to the female menopause, that can affect men between the ages of 40 and 65. Men do not have a clear-cut signpost to mark the transition. In women estrogen drops dramatically at menopause, but testosterone levels in men drop very gradually over many years and decades. The bodily changes in andropause occur very gradually in men and may be accompanied by changes in attitudes and moods, fatigue, a loss of energy, sex drive, stamina, and physical agility.
Andropause may be triggered not only by declines in testosterone, but in the "female" hormone estrogen as well.
There is a growing interest, as well as a booming industry, in the use of testosterone therapy for middle-aged and older men. This interest has led to the definition of a new condition, termed 'andropause' implying that this condition is due to falling levels of testosterone. This trend risks replicating both the rejuvenation fads of a century ago and the recent experience in estrogen therapy for menopause that has been propelled for decades by advocacy substituting for reliable scientific evidence. Is testosterone therapy appropriate for men with symptoms of male menopause? There is no scientific agreement on this topic.
But it stands to reason that hormones should be used only as a last resort since they have serious risks if misused.
Can training with just weight machines make you stronger?
Whomever has been a member of a gym in the past 15 years, will have noticed how slowly but surely, machines have taken a back seat and more and more space is given to 3-dimensional weight equipment, like suspension (TRX-)trainers, gym balls, kettle bells and even fun stuff that was formerly unheard of like pole dances and climbing walls.
A very popular trend is the development of Cross-Fit in which both strength and endurance is equally valued and in which Olympic weightlifting exercises are also incorporated.
As someone who has dabbled both in Olympic and power lifting as well as endurance cycling, I've been very happy about this development even though I keep using machines myself too. Recently, Christian Finn, a coach who specialized in rehab training, pointed out how machines have a more important role than most of us realize. It's well worth sharing it in our blog, too.
DHEA, what is it and why is it so popular?DHEA is an abbreviation for dehydroepiandrosterone, which is a steroid hormone available in dietary supplement form. Inside the body, it is made in the adrenal glands.
In the body, DHEA is converted into male and female sex hormones, such as estrogen and testosterone.
DHEA is also responsible for developing “androgenic effects” that are referred to as masculinization. Examples of such changes include production of oilier skin, changes in body odor and growth of armpit and pubic hair.
On the other hand, DHEA can play a part in physiological pathways, since it is believed to bind to certain receptor types and act as a neurosteroid that directly affects neuronal excitability.
DHEA production peaks around age 25. Afterwards DHEA levels decline steadily.
The lost art of flirting
In the past weeks, no years one after another scandal about sexual abuse came out in the open, where the pattern was very clear: one person being far more powerful than the other, who didn't speak up until even decades later, about the abuse out of respect or fear.
Yet, despite all the outrage over sexual intimidation, we almost seem to forget about desirable intimacies and the sheer fun of flirting.
Fortunately, in Europe flirting is still considered to be an innocent game , but in the USA male students have started to stop approaching female students for fear of being accused of sexual intimidation.
In a time, when non-verbal communication is diminishing and both sexes seem to be fighting each other, it made sense to focus on a more pleasant aspect of communication: the flirt. All over the world, both men and women seem to forget how to flirt. In a rapidly changing society, where most communication happens over a smart phone, people literally have less "eye" contact and forget the (mostly) non-verbal language of flirting.
That is why we need a course in flirting, Flirting 101 so to say. Fortunately I didn't need to write it myself, there is one already on the internet. Not a nonsensical girly guide, but one based on real scientific facts.
We can't share the entire content here, so I will limit myself to sharing the introduction and adding an explanation as to why we don't always recognize flirting behaviour or think someone is flirting when they aren't but were just paying you (or your loved one) a compliment.
Don't sabotage your virility!
Plasticizers are additives of which phtalates are the most abundant ones (and bisphenol-A or BPA the best known) that are used to increase the flexibility or plasticity of the material to which they are added, normally rigid plastic and as additives in paint and adhesives.
Phtalates are not just found in obvious plastic packaging, building materials and toys, but also in fragrances, cosmetics, shampoo, shaving cream, and other cleaning detergents.
