How does Methoxylated Flavones work?

Methoxylated flavones are natural antioxidants and might reduce inflammation (swelling). They might also affect the way the liver processes cholesterol and other blood fats. Scientists think methoxylated flavones might also reduce the spread of cancer cells. But more information is needed.

Are there safety concerns?

Methoxylated flavones are a normal part of the diet. They are safe when consumed as part of food. But there isn't enough information available to know if supplements containing methoxylated flavones are safe.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Methoxylated flavones are safe for pregnant and breast-feeding women when used as part of the diet. But the safety of methoxylated flavones during pregnancy and breast-feeding is not known when used in amounts greater than those commonly found in foods. It's best to stay on the safe side and limit intake to food amounts.

Surgery: Methoxylated flavones can slow blood clotting. There is some concern that they might increase the risk of bleeding during and after surgery. Stop taking methoxylated flavones supplements at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
