5-Methyl-7-methoxyisoflavone [methoxyisoflavone] is a synthetic chemical compound marketed as a bodybuilding supplement. Some isoflavones e.g. 7-isopropoxyisoflavone [ipriflavone] and methoxyisoflavone have been marketed as “powerful anabolic” substances. These believes originated from U.S. Patent [in the early 1970′s] and some preliminary studies which reported lower cortisol levels, increased protein synthesis, and improved overall recovery from exercise as a result of isoflavone supplementation in animals. However, findings in recent studies using healthy people contrasts marketed claims that this nutrient increases anabolic status or enhances training adaptations in resistance-trained athletes.
