Ipriflavone, 7-isopropoxy-isoflavone, was synthesized in the late 1960s. Though produced synthetically today, it is a naturally occuring isoflavone and belongs to a group of compounds called bioflavonoids, which are found abundantly in plants. It is a isoflavone derivative that acts primarily to suppress bone resorption.

Other in-vitro studies have shown that ipriflavone can stimulate osteoblasts to form new bone. Unlike the bone-building drug treatments that can produce serious side effects, the only reported side effect from ingesting ipriflavone is an upset stomach in a small percentage of the users.  This makes ipriflavone a powerful and safe agent for preventing and treating osteoporosis.

Ipriflavone is a registered treatment for osteoporosis in many European countries and Japan. It is used as an alternative to hormone treatments for increasing bone mass and relieving the pain of osteoporosis. It’s often used in conjunction with low dosages of estrogen to increase their anti-osteoporotic effects. The research has also demonstrated that ipriflavone appears to produce its strongest bone-building actions when given in conjunction with other bone-supporting supplements.

Even though the discovery of ipriflavone dates back to the 1930s, it was not produced in the laboratory until the 1970s. Animal studies, which began in 1974, led to human studies being conducted in 1981. During the 1980s and 1990s a number of randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled studies demonstrated ipriflavone could prevent or decrease the loss of bone mass in postmenopausal women.

 

Other research studies have shown that taking a daily dose of 600 mg of ipriflavone could increase bone density by as much as 9 percent in three to nine months and cause a significant reduction of fractures after two years of treatment. Since then, close to 500 patients treated with ipriflavone in double-blind, placebo controlled studies have noted significant gains of between.5 to 7.1 percent in total body, forearm and vertebral bone mineral density. Ipriflavone has also resulted in the relief of pain and an increase in mobility.
