FL-113, 7-isopropoxyisoflavone, 7-Isopropoxy-Isoflavone, Ipriflavona, TC-80.
Ipriflavone is used for preventing and treating weak bones (osteoporosis) in older women, preventing osteoporosis caused by certain medications, relieving pain associated with osteoporosis, and treating a bone disease called Paget's disease. It is also used for reducing bone loss caused by chronic kidney disease (renal osteodystrophy) and by paralysis associated with stroke. Researchers have found that paralyzed stroke patients have weaker bones on the affected side, possibly due to immobility as well as vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D deficiency may stem from lack of exposure to sunlight.
Ipriflavone is also used by bodybuilders to increase metabolism.
