Chrysin

How does Chrysin work?

Athletes are interested in chrysin for bodybuilding because laboratory research suggested that chrysin might increase the male hormone called testosterone and improve bodybuilding results. But research in humans hasn't found any effect on testosterone levels. The amount of chrysin that is absorbed from the intestine may be very small, which would make treatment effects unlikely.

Are there safety concerns?

Chrysin is POSSIBLY SAFE for most adults when taken by mouth for up to 8 weeks. No adverse effects have been reported.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking chrysin if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Bleeding disorder: Chrysin might increase bleeding. There is some concern that it might increase the risk of bruising and bleeding in people with bleeding disorders.

Surgery: Chrysin might slow blood clotting. There is concern that it might increase the risk of extra bleeding during and after surgery. Stop taking chrysin at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
