What is 7,8-DIHYDROXYFLAVONE (38183-03-8)?

7,8-Dihydroxyflavone (7,8-DHF) is a flavone found in plants. It was discovered while searching for molecules that imitate the function of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF).

BDNF promotes the growth of neurons and synapses (synaptogenesis) and is very important for normal brain function. Lower amounts of BDNF are observed in diseases such as depression, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and schizophrenia.

Studies in animals show that 7,8-DHF could potentially help with brain repair, long-term memory, depression, and neurodegenerative diseases.


7,8-DIHYDROXYFLAVONE (38183-03-8) benefits

Memory and Learning

7,8-DHF improved object recognition (a test used to determine learning and memory) in healthy rats when given immediately following and three hours after learning. It also improved memory in mice with dementia. In rat models of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), 7,8-DHF prevented stress-related memory impairment. 7,8-DHF also improved memory in aging rats.


Brain Repair

7,8-DHF promoted the repair of damaged neurons. It also increased the production of new neurons in the brains of adult mice after brain injury and promoted neuron growth in aged mice. Similarly, 7,8-DHF, along with exercise, improved brain function in rats that experienced traumatic brain injury.


Alzheimer’s Disease

In animal models for Alzheimer’s disease, 7,8-DHF:

Reduced amyloid plaque formation

Reduced oxidative stress

Prevented loss of synapses

Prevented memory deficits and preserved cognitive function

However, another study found no benefits in treating mice with Alzheimer’s-like brain damage with 7,8-DHF.


Parkinson’s Disease

7,8-DHF improved motor function and prevents the loss of dopamine-related neurons in a mouse model of Parkinson’s disease.

It also prevents the death of dopamine-sensitive neurons in monkey models of Parkinson’s disease.


7,8-DIHYDROXYFLAVONE (38183-03-8) uses?

7,8-Dihydroxyflavone (7,8-DHF) is a naturally occurring flavonoid. It has shown efficacy against several nervous-system diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s. 7,8-Dihydroxyflavone (7,8-DHF) is thought to be a promising therapeutic agent for various neurodegenerative diseases.


7,8-DIHYDROXYFLAVONE (38183-03-8) dosage

7,8-DHF can be purchased as capsules/pills, or powder.

There is no safe and effective dose of 7,8-DHF because no sufficiently powered study has been conducted to find one. The most common dosage in commercially available supplements is 10 – 30 mg per day.
