Dee Cee Ipriflavone is a calcium supplement that was designed by Dee Cee Labs to prevent osteoporosis and to help build strong bones.
Ipriflavone is a synthetic derivative of naturally occurring compounds found in soybeans and other plants that act like the female hormone estrogen in the body. It is important to note: Many products claiming to prevent or treat osteoporosis have appeared in pharmacies and health food stores in recent years. At present, Ipriflavone is the only such product to have scientific evidence to support its use.
Ipriflavone works by slowing down the work of the osteoclasts (bone-eroding cells) thus allowing the osteoblasts (bone-building cells) to work optimally. Dee Cee Labs pure Ipriflavone maintains bone density at the spine and as with all Ipriflavone products, it is an alternative to consider to prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. Ipriflavone is not used to treat osteoporosis.
For many years postmenopausal women in Europe and Japan have taken Ipriflavone supplements to maintain the density and strength of their bones and to guard against fractures and osteoporosis. More recently, in the USA Ipriflavone supplements has become available.
Postmenopausal women taking the prescription drug calcitonin to prevent bone loss may boost its effectiveness by taking Ipriflavone. In a two-year Italian study involving 453 women age 50 to 65 with decreased bone density, participants who took 600 mg of Ipriflavone plus calcium daily maintained bone density; those who took calcium alone experienced significant bone loss.
Cautions to be aware of: Ipriflavone may interact negatively with theophylline, a prescription medication used to open up the airways in people with asthma, emphysema, and other lung disorders. Consult your doctor before combining. In addition, if you are taking any prescription drug, consult your doctor before taking Ipriflavone. Specifically, due to its hormonal effect, don't take Ipriflavone if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Also, consult your doctor before trying Ipriflavone if you have a hormone-sensitive type of cancer. Breast cancer is an example. You should avoid Ipriflavone if you have a kidney disorder. Ipriflavone is metabolized by the liver, so don't take the supplement if you have a chronic liver problem. Ipriflavone could accumulate to toxic levels in the liver.
