Chrysin has varity of applications

Chrysin is one of a class of polyphenols known as “flavonoids” – which are often called “bioflavonoids” when they occur in foods or supplements. Other, well-known flavonoids include quercetin , and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG, found in green tea).

Chrysin is available as an herbal supplement, some users are taking chrysin with the hope of raising testosterone levels or stimulating testosterone production. One study listed below did not find chrysin supplementation to lead to any significant increase in testosterone production. Chrysin was once believed to be an effective aromatase inhibitor, decreasing the levels of estrogen in the body. The obtained data did not show alterations of the levels of testosterone in the volunteers after 7, 14, and 21 days of treatment in comparison with baseline values and compared with measurements on the control subjects at the same time. In conclusion, the use of these foods for 21 days at the doses usually taken as oral supplementation does not have effects on the equilibrium of testosterone in human

To evaluate the effects of Chinese propolis and its constituents [chrysin, galangin, pinocembrin, caffeic acid, and caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE)] against tunicamycin-induced neuronal cell death in SH-SY5Y cells, they did a research. Both Chinese propolis and chrysin concentration-dependently inhibited such cell death, the tunicamycin-induced activation of caspase-3, and the effects of tunicamycin on mitochondria release of cytochrome c into the cytosol and disruption of the mitochondrial membrane potential. Furthermore, Chinese propolis and chrysin each inhibited staurosporine-induced cell death. These findings indicate that the inhibitory effects of Chinese propolis against neuronal cell death induced by ER stress or staurosporine may be exerted primarily by chrysin. Moreover, the mechanism underlying the protective effects may, at least partly, involve inhibitions of caspase-3 activity and the mitochondrial apoptotic pathway.

In addition, chrysin inhibited tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha-induced activation of NF-kappaB in IEC-6 cells. These findings suggest that chrysin exerts potentially clinically useful anti-inflammatory effects mediated through the suppression of NF-kappaB
