7,8-Dihydroxyflavone activates TrkB and mimics BDNF’s effects by inducing neurogenesis in unhealthy subjects.

7,8-DHF is a synthetic flavonoid which can reach the brain and activate a receptor (TrkB) that promotes neuronal growth. Some animal evidence suggests that 7,8-DHF may have some cognitive and motor benefits and may be nootropic, but no human evidence for these claims exists to date.
