Chrysine Supplement: Natural Chrysin Flavonoid for Testosterone Levels
Chrysine is a chrysin supplement aimed at men over 50. Produced naturally from passiflora, it is absorbed best when combined with a piperine supplement.
Why use passiflora for extracting chrysin?
Passiflora, or passion flower, is a climbing plant that grows to around 10 metres, of which the aerial parts (stems, leaves, flowers and fruit) contain potentially active chemical compounds. These include:
- heterosides derived from apigenin (a flavonoid included in
the formulation Daily 6), such as vitexin and isovitexin;
- luteolin derivatives, such as orientin and isoorientin;
- chrysin, the ingredient in this supplement;
- alkaloids with a β-carboline nucleus such as harmine, harman, harmol and harmalol.
What exactly is chrysin?
Chrysin is a phytonutrient found in, amongst others, propolis, honey and passiflora. It is a powerful flavonoid which has been the subject of scientific study by human sexuality experts.
Though it has low bioavailability, this can be significantly improved by taking an
extract of black pepper standardised in piperine at the same time.
Why do testosterone levels fall with age?
The scientific literature clearly shows there’s a progressive decline in blood testosterone levels as men get older. This decline is associated with decreases in bone density, muscle mass, strength, sexual function and several physiological parameters.
The main reason for this decline is the fall in testosterone production which occurs in Leydig cells in the testicles (1-2). One of the genes that helps produce it from cholesterol, the StAR gene, gradually stops being expressed (3).
The physiological and psychological symptoms that accompany this fall in testosterone in men as they grow older is known collectively as the andropause. It usually appears between the ages of 45 and 65. Around 30% of men are thought to develop noticeable symptoms.
How should Chrysine be taken?
Our chrysin supplement is for men only. We recommend taking 1 to 3 tablets a day, preferably with meals. We’d also recommend following the guidelines below throughout the supplementation period:
- Eat, in moderation, foods that promote testosterone production: eggs, avocados, oysters and pomegranates.
- Get enough sleep. Testosterone is produced primarily while we’re asleep, so it’s important to ensure good quality sleep throughout the supplementation period. To help with this, you can take our
Melatonin supplement which also contains CBD.
- Take regular exercise. Being overweight has the effect of reducing testosterone production.
- Limit alcohol consumption and smoking, neither of which are good for male sexuality.
For even better results, you can combine it with the supplement Tribulus Terrestris 500 mg.
|Daily serving: 3 tablets
Number of servings per bottle : 30
||1 500 mg |
| Other ingredients: calcium carbonate, stearic acid, maltodextrin, croscarmellose sodium, shellac. |
Each tablet contains 500 mg pharmaceutical grade chrysin.
Directions for use
For adult males only. Take one to three tablets with a meal.
Value for money
Hardly available on the market. Very useful.
La Chrysine a une action anti-aromatase qui empêche la transformation de la testostérone en oestrogènes.
Fonctionne vraiment - bonne qualité
Como todos los complementos sus efectos son debiles y su consumo constante. En este caso la dosis minima recomendada es alta lo que hace que el precio para un consumo continuo sea alto.
Que mejoreis sea cual sea vuestro padecimiento, suerte.
Ce produit correspond bien à la description et semble diminuer les effets de transformation de la testostérone en œstrogènes apparaissant avec l'âge, notamment la gynécomastie
Résultats satisfaisants mais peu entrainer certaines allergies
A prendre associé à d'autres antiaromatases
