Fisetin to Clear Senescent Cells

Following studies with mice that showed significant senolytic clearance of senescent cells following large doses of the readily available flavenoid supplement Fisetin,  my wife and I (ages 79 and 84) decided to try it.  We have just completed two sets of massive Fisetin doses.

We had Life Extension blood-work done in October before the start, and we will have more again next week to observe any changes.  The first set of Fisetin doses was on October 22-25 with 800 mg/day for three days followed by 600 mg on the fourth day, for a total of 4 g.  I didn't notice much in the way of effects.  Perhaps some reduction of small aches and pains and some increase in energy and mental acuity.

For the second set of doses done November 22-26, since we experienced no negative side effects in the first set we decided to increase the dosage a bit and to add 10 mg of BioPerine, a supplement that is reputed to magnify the effects and potency of flavenoids.  For five days starting on Thanksgiving we took 500 mg of Fisetin and 10 mg of BioPerine twice per day, for a total of 5 g of Fisetin.

This time. I did experience one negative side effect.  A few months ago, about 2 AM in the morning I awoke from a deep sleep and experienced a severe episode of vertigo.   I turned over in bed, and the the whole room seemed to tilt.  Suddenly, I didn't know which way was up.  I staggered to the bathroom and vomited.  The symptoms tapered off and disappeared in a few days, but it was a very distributing experience.

On the 2nd day of our 2nd Fisetin series, I experience a recurrence of that vertigo in the middle of the night, not as bad as my initial experience but still rather disturbing.  I tolerated this mild vertigo and continued the treatment.  My wife had no similar symptoms, and after my last dose I experienced no further vertigo symptoms.

On the positive side, following the second set of dosages I did feel very well, and very sharp and alert.  This past weekend I ran my Shetland Sheepdog Taliesin in an AKC Canine Agility Trial in Mt. Vernon, WA, and we did very well, qualifying in 7 runs out of 15 and getting various colored placement ribbons.  I was feeling quite sharp, and I even invented a new dog-handling technique that fixed an ongoing problem we were having.

Next week we will do the blood-work again, and I'll report any changes.

  • I just heard that quercetin with a bio-available zinc does the same as HCQ in that it escorts the zinc into the cell to kill viruses.    Maybe off topic but thought you might like to know.   It's to be taken as a preventative.   Amazon is now selling them together in one supplement.

      Fred Cloud I figured I am still young so I don't have senescent cells.  But, now that you mention it maybe I will do it again next month.

      I didn't feel any major effects with fisetin this time around with the 1500mg/day dosage.  However, the first time I did it six months ago I took 600mg/day for five days.  On day two or so I felt slightly weak, just barely.  I attributed this weakness to cells being destroyed.  I did not feel weakness this time, even with the larger dose.  I am going to get some Dasatinib and try it out.

  • Here is an excerpt from the article on the grapefruit juice effect on sirolimus. I didnt realize that the effect begins within a few hours of ingesting the juice. I thought it was faster than that.

    "Consuming 8 ounces of grapefruit juice increases sirolimus levels by 350%, allowing persons with cancer to take less toxic doses of the drug.        

    This information was obtained from three simultaneous phase 1 studies involving 138 persons with advanced cancer. The trials employed an adaptive escalation design to find the doses of oral, weekly sirolimus alone or in combination with either the antifungal agent ketoconazole or grapefruit juice that would achieve similar blood concentrations as temsirolimus, the intravenously administered and approved prodrug of sirolimus.

    An mTOR inhibitor, sirolimus is approved to help prevent organ rejection in transplant recipients, but may have anticancer effects as well. Grapefruit juice inhibits intestinal P450 enzymes that break down sirolimus as well as several other drugs.

    According to a statement from the University of Chicago Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, where study director and cancer specialist Ezra Cohen, MD, practices, the effect of grapefruit juice begins within a few hours of ingestion and wears off gradually after a few days. Although this effect has long been considered an overdose hazard, “We wanted to see if grapefruit juice can be used in a controlled fashion to increase the availability and efficacy of sirolimus,” explained Cohen in the statement."

  • I tried the protocol of 3days of 3000mg and did not notice any effects. Granted, I have other bigger issues going on. 
     

    nonetheless, I came across a review on Amazon by an 81 year old women in a retirement home who noticed her memory was failing. She takes 2000mg a day, every day and has noticed great memory Improvement.  Her review showed excellent abilities as well. 
     

    Her dosing is the highest I have heard to date, and just like rapamycin, this begs the question of: what makes 2grams a day a mega dose? Perhaps if trials of 3 days are done the dosage should be 10 grams. 
     

    This women, at her age would be most sensitive to negative side effects, yet she has reported none. I will see if I can screenshot the review.

      GEdwards As far as rapamycin, mTOR1 is said to be exquisitely sensitive to Rapamycin while mTOR2 (associated primarily with the innate immune system) is far less so affected. Rapamycin taken daily at only 2mgs build up over a week enough to suppress mTOR2, not desirable unless you want to suppress a kidney transplant.  Taken only weekly, 5-12mgs of rapamycin largely reduces mTOR1 without impacting mTOR2.... Suppressing inflammation, encouraging autophagy, clearing many senescent cells.

      I am not aware of dose toxicity for Fisetin. But it is not thought to affect mTOR2

      Arizona Kid I've read that a single 20mg dose is enough to stop mTOR1 for almost a full week but I don't believe that's thought to be ideal..... As mild to moderate suppression is sufficient to provide benefits.  Certainly mTOR1 should not be suppressed after surgery of any kind requiring wound healing!  

      Remember that male dosing of the same amount as a female results on~30% less bioavailable Rapamycin. Also taking with high fat food results in higher absorbtion. And taking with GF juice also leads to a ~3x increase in absorbtion.  I take 3-4mgs weekly with GF juice.

      Arizona Kid It may depend on if you have issues.....I heard from Dr. Attia that the son of the discoverer of Rapamycin that got it to novartis was beset with cancer and took 1mg a day.....but we know that daily comes with issues.... I can tell you that my doc, Dr. Allen Green (RapamycinTherapy.com) is the best way to find out.....I went to NYC through La Guardia and had a regular appt with him in his home.....he will want blood work....he can show you how to get the tests. Dr. Green is an older gent, not chatty or terribly social but sharp sharp! He advises my close friend with an aggressive cancer.....and notes that if you already have a chronic disease, rapamycin is more a preventative than a treatment at weekly doses.
      Anecdotally, I am taking the equivalent of 10-12mg once a week....eg 3-4mgs with GF Juice and I am shortly going to be 68 and have a somewhat less aggressive prostate cancer......Dr. Green asked that I up from 9mgs to 12mgs.....or 3mg to 4mg w/ GF Juice.  If your C Reactive Protein blood test is high or high normal.....tend to take more....suppressing systemic inflammation if a major major benefit.  I had mild gout, and virtually none, I have painful hand arthritis, and now that's 70-80% gone......Do not buy from Biocon of India.....go through Dr. Green who has a compounding pharmacy that sells 3mg pills for about $10.  I also take 500mg ER metformin on days I do not work out....two pills.  That is also helpful....remember, there is no single magic bullet but Rapamycin is pretty close.

      Paul D Wolf   Since lipid "encapsulation" has been shown to significantly increase absorption I'm surprised that more experimenters apparently haven't tried or haven't commented on the recently  released "micro encapsulated" gel formula.   Any significant improvement over the estimated 2% absorption of Fisetin seems like a potential game changer in getting effective doses into the blood stream.   In the absence of other comments, I guess I'll have to try a wild guess at an effective dose and adjust according to results. 

          I keep hoping some researchers will come up with a practical method of monitoring Fisetin levels in blood or urine in real time.    Urine test strips could provide easy, periodic tests.    Perhaps some transdermal sensor reacting to a chemical change related to Fisetin?

      Hi to all,

      I am a 47 year old female pharmacist (retired to run an education business) in Australia weighing 59kg. No current health problems. Latest bloods - all within normal limits.

      I have just finished my 4th fisetin trial over 5 days.

      I do a fisetin trial every 4-6 months using fisetin from Vitaspace (powder form). Vitaspace provide a spoon which measures 620mg.

       

      Latest dosing as follows:

       

      Day 1: 3100mg (620mg x 5 Vitaspace spoonfuls) - dissolve and mix thoroughly in equal parts of Polysorbate 80, extra virgin olive oil and hot water with a dissolved 1/2 Equal artificial sweetener tablet. It becomes a very smooth toothpaste consistency. Eat with a spoon. Rinse with strong coffee with real cream (this is the cream you get from the dairy section and might whip to put on top of a meringue cake).

      Do not eat anything for 30 minutes.

       

      Day 2: 3100mg (620mg x 5 Vitaspace spoonfuls)

      Day 3: 3720mg (620mg x 6 Vitaspace spoonfuls)

      Day 4: 4340mg (620mg x 7 Vitaspace spoonfuls)

      Day 5: 4960mg (620mg x 8 Vitaspace spoonfuls)

       

      Results:

      Day 1: nothing, had a nap after lunch

      Day 2: 90% reversal of chronic nasal congestion, 50 - 60% more energy, faster urination.

      Day 3: woke with more than normal amount of energy

      Day 4: nothing of note

      Day 5: Got COVID-19. Runny nose lasted for three days. Used my Ventolin puffer a few times for a dry cough which became a wet cough for 1-2 days after the runny nose finished.

       

      One week later:

      Feeling sharp and clear today on 10/01/22

       

      I import the fisetin in powder form from Peter at Vitaspace in New York State. You can order direct from the website.

       

      https://www.vitaspace.com

      PHONE = 631-342-1883.

       

      Email Peter direct if required:

      vitaspace@mindspring.com

       

      Fisetin 98% (PURE) (Light Yellow Powder):

      Reiterating: Peter provides a 1.7ml Vitaspace spoon which measures 620mg assuming that the powder is tightly packed and levelled.

       

      I get the Polysorbate 80 (food-grade) from a cooking store in the US: https://modernistpantry.com/

      Rob8311  Lack of a practical means for measuring the percentage or volume of senescent cells in the body seems to be the biggest problem with determining the effectiveness of any senolytic treatment.    Autopsy seems to be the only reliable method and has been used in tests involving lab mice but is obviously impractical for human testing.    I keep hoping someone will come up with a blood or urine test which will provide a relative indication of the volume or percentage of senescent cells in a human body or an indication of cells being destroyed by in vivo following a senolytic treatment.    Perhaps some residue from ruptured senescent cells released into the bloodstream or excreted in urine.....

  • Hi Everyone!  I just stumbled across this thread and find it very informative. I would like to ask the group their opinion of what I should do next.  I am 65 and have had chronic pain for 10 years: knee pain, L4-5 issues, nerve pain in butt (probably die to L4/5), neck pain (severe OA there) and more recently should/arm pain. It just keeps expanding to new areas. I work with an Anti-Aging institute and they can find little to work with as my blood work is, in their words, impressive: lipid panel 30 yr olds would love to have (their words), C reactive protein WNL, nutrients all good, liver enzymes low, etc...I feel like I have tried everything with no symptom relief.  Here is what I've done over the last couple years:  a variety of Peptides ( one combination worked on my knees but we couldn't replicate it), PPS, EGCG, high doses of Melatonin, bioidentical hormone replacement, intermittent fasting, Spermidine, and a stint of D+Q about a year ago; all of this they recommended to me to reduce inflammation (which hasn't worked). I thought maybe I was focusing on the wrong thing so I took a blood test that measures cytokines and I'm waiting for the results.  After reading much of this thread, I decided that my D+Q protocol was under-dosed, so just yesterday I started a more aggressive protocol of 200 mg D+ 1250mg of Quercetin which I will do for 4 days. Does anyone have any other ideas of what else I can try? I would really appreciate your suggestions. Thank you in advance.

Note that Consumers Lab found Costco's green tea inferior as it had little or no EGGC but found Costco's   Kirkland fish oil one of the better brands. Consumers Lab also get into arguments with some manufactorers about some of the products it evaluates. I will still check Consumer Labs but with skepticism.

      Denise Shugerman This may be a bit of a different approach from what you have tried, but you mention OA which I assume is osteoarthritis, and joint pain.  The first thing I would do is supplement with Borax.  (Yes, 20 Mule Team Borax...)  Borax is a clean and excellent source of Boron.  Boron has been shown to be a necessary trace element and low levels in the water and diet has been shown to correlate with higher levels of arthritis in both people and animals.  I have used this myself with excellent results and have recommended it to about 15 or so people and every one of them has experienced some level of improvement in their joint pain. 

      You need to take at least 100mg of Borax (which contains about 10mg of Boron) a day, and if you take more initially it is not a problem.  The daily maintenance dose of 3mg a day is definitely not enough to get ahead of the curve on this.  You can think of it like table salt and take a fair pinch of it, as much as you would use for a good salting of ones eggs at breakfast.  I would recommend taking it like this for about 3 weeks.  I usually get results in a week and then forget to continue as I don't continue to have pain...  After this, you can supplement at 3mg if you like.

      Robert Olin I find a nice approach to fasting is to eat my last meal on the afternoon of a Friday (2-3pm as work allows). Go through Saturday on green tea or black coffee -> add a little salt for electrolyte balance. Gently refeed on Sunday morning starting with a small amount of bone broth or protein. Should get you into the autophagy space. Frequency once a month for me. As long as your insulin levels are already tamed by having avoided snacking and the like for a while this degree of fasting is almost effortless, in fact it's pleasurable.

      Robert Olin I'd just like to clarify that autophagy does NOT "start" at the 17 hour mark, which is by no means a definitive dividing line in any case.  Actually, autophagy is happening ALL the time, but does increase with fasting. On different pages of her website (which also seems geared towards product sales), Dr. Mindy Pelz also cites Dr. Ohsumi's 13-15 hours and Naomi Whittel's 16 hours, but peer reviewed academic research has demonstrated that depending on the size and composition of the last full meal, the liver may use the last of its glucose reserves in as few as 8 to 12 hours, hence the popularity not only of the 18/6, but also the 16/8 and even 14/10 time restricted eating protocols.  My best wishes for your aching back!

It also inhibits the brain shrinkage and cognitive  decline that are part of the aging process. 

      The Barry Sears books will describe the chemistry and multiple benefits, and he recommends at least 5 grams if you have a chronic inflammatory condition.

    • Denise Shugerman I purchase my Nature's Bounty fish oil from Costco. Each capsule weighs 1.4 grams ( 1400 mg) and contains 0.88 grams of EPA/DHA total. I rounded it off to 0.9 grams of EPA/DHA /capsule. I take 6 capsules/day ( 3 in am and 3 in pm ).  6 capsules x 0.9 grams/capsule = 5.4 grams of EPA/DHA.

      There are 130 capsules/bottle and each bottle costs~ $16.00 when they go on sale every other month. Not on sale cost is ~$21.00 at my Costco. 

      I suggest you may want to read one of Barry Sears books as he goes into detail about the numerous benefits of fish oil for multiple systems which include cardiac, inflammation (arthritis),  neurological and vision.   He recommends ~2.5 grams /day for maintenance, ~5.0 gams/day for chronic conditions and higher levels for acute conditions.  There are over 7,000 peer reviewed publications on fish oil. 

      As I indicated, I started on fish oil almost 30 years ago after an emergency bypass. It came to my attention from articles in LEF 's magazine and the author  ( Dr. William Davis) was a cardiac physician who also  published a book entitled "Track Your Plaque" . I visited him in Wisconsin and over a period of about 1.5 years he balanced my cholesterol with  high dose  fish oil and low dose statin to lower several critical factors to a non threatening condition. Basically fish oil lowers triglycerides which in turn lowers LDL-P and particle size to an acceptable level.

      At the time, I was using LEF's oil but switched as Natures Bounty was it somewhat less expensive and more convenient. I also made the switch at the time based on Consumer Labs findings. Since that time, Consumer Lab no longer tests Natures Bounty and the historical record has been removed. Consumer Labs most recent analyses indicate the Kirkland Brand ( Costco) and LEF's straight fish oil are OK as well several other brands.  As regards Consumers Lab, please note Vans' ealier comment in that Consumer Lab's only test if they are paid. This is a conflict but I do not know what else to tell you as pharmaceutical grade fish oil will cost you orders of magnitude more  than the 3 over the counter brands I mentioned above.

      Additional info on fisetin:

      https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fchem.2019.00697/full

      • Recent in vitro studies have given a mechanistic insight into how fisetin inhibits the target of the rapamycin pathway in various cell models and therefore influences cellular pathways that are known to affect aging (Syed et al., 2013Pallauf et al., 2016).
      • It has also been found that fisetin in combination with other epigenetically active molecules which are able to cross the blood-aqueous and blood-retina barriers exhibit synergistic beneficial effects. This applies for a low dose red wine polyphenols, as well as for vitamin D3 and some other compounds of small molecular weight, synergistically improving visual acuity in patients with advanced atrophic age-related muscular degeneration, including the older ones with advanced stages of the disease for whom very few options remained (Ivanova et al., 2017).
      • The anticancer activity of fisetin can be enhanced by some auxiliary substances. For example, fisetin significantly impairs carcinoma cell growth in the presence of ascorbic acid, which results in a 61% inhibition of cell growth, in 72 h; the treatment with ascorbic acid alone had no effect on cellular proliferation (Kandaswami et al., 1993).

          I just watched Miller's presentation.   His mention of Fisetin was very brief and dismissive, and he did not say specifically how it was given to his test mice.  It is well known from Kirkland et al that for any senolytic effects there is a threshold that must be exceeded and that too small a dose does nothing.  It is not clear whether they used large burst doses for a few days or if they just added modest amounts of Fisetin to their daily mouse chow.  Also, he said that they had not tried Quercetin, and he did not even mention Dasatinib, so it's clear that did not try D+Q as a senolytic.  Finally, I don't understand why he was so dismissive of lab results done by administering the molecules in question to senescent human cell cultures.  I would think that such tests are at least as indicative as tests on a distant short-lived species.

          ITF may be the "gold standard" for testing supplements, but I'm skeptical of how well their mouse longevity tests can be applied to humans.   Miller said that 70% of their test mice die of cancer, whereas the human mortality rate due to cancer is about 0.2%.  Therefore, the supplements that ITF is testing may be just suppressing mouse cancer rather that extending their general lifespan.  He did allude to mouse fitness and cognition tests, but mouse death seemed to be the principal ITF criterion.

          On the positive side, I liked what he said about the NIH bureaucrat's bogus "see-saw" between healthspan and lifespan, which had stunted the field of aging research for decades.  Also, the "promising" supplements he identified, particularly those that are available over-the-counter, are well worth considering for addition to our daily list of supplements.

      JGC Remember the ITP has three test sites.  From what I remember in previous experiments there are 100 control mice and 50 experiment mice at each location.  So the ITP is actually reporting the results in culmination from all three sites.  That’s why any conclusion they come up with has weight.  They also tested the fisetin at two different doses.  So let’s wait and see.  However, they also reported fisetin doesn’t hurt.  So while we wait we can still take it without harm.

          OK, I went to the Interventions Testing Program (ITP) web site looking for more information on just how they tested Fisetin.  They list a large number of ITP publications, but none I could find that mention Fisetin in the title or abstract.  Their "Compounds in Testing" table indicates that they tested Fisetin as a part of their 2018 Cohort on mice from age 20 month to death (mice live about 36 months).  They administered 600 parts per million of Fisetin in the mouse chow in the cycle of 3 days on and 11 days off.  It is not clear what mg/kg dose level corresponds to 600 parts per million (it depends on how much chow the mouse eats and how much the mouse weighs), but it sounds small.  I suspect that their dosage was not over the senolytic threshold.

          Addressing the issue of whether Miller is using a large enough senolytic dose, I did the following calculation:

          When I do a 3-day senolytic session (like yesterday through tomorrow), I take 2,000 mg of Fisetin per day for three days.  I weight about 72 kg, so my senolytic dose level is about 28 mg/kg.

          My agility champion Shetland Sheepdog Taliesin is fed about 100 g of kibble per day (I weigh it), and he weight is about 12 kg.  If his kibble were to contain 600 parts per million of Fisetin, then he would get about 60 mg of Fisetin, which means that his senolytic dose would be about 5.0 mg/kg.  If my dog is a good analog to Miller's mice, then Miller's mice are getting about 18% of the dose level that I and others take for senolytics.  That's likely to be well below the senolytic threshold.

          I'm not surprised that Miller's group sees no senolytic effect.

A range of bioactive compounds isolated from the leaves of Mango (Mangifera indica L.) were screened for their inhibitory effect against AG and among them arjunolic acid and actinidic acid exhibited inhibitory activity with IC50 values of 239.60 ± 25.00 and 297.37 ± 8.12 μM, respectively [46]. Similarly, extracts from the peel of fruits of Jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus) displayed the strongest inhibitory activity (IC50: 0.05 mg/mL) followed by its seed (IC50: 1.79 ± 0.15 mg/mL), pulp (IC50: 6.81 ± 0.52 mg/mL), and flake (IC50: 10.52 ± 0.73 mg/mL) extracts [47]. Grape seed and green tea extracts were also found to have strong inhibitory activity against AG with an IC50 values of 1.2 ± 0.2 and 0.5 ± 0.1 µg/mL, respectively. These inhibition potencies were much stronger than the inhibitory effect obtained from acarbose (IC50: 91.0 ± 10.8 µg/mL) [48].

      https://www.healio.com/news/endocrinology/20210517/mulberry-twig-alkaloids-lower-hba1c-with-fewer-gastrointestinal-effects-vs-acarbose.

       

      • Qu and colleagues analyzed data from 600 adults who met 1999 WHO diagnostic criteria for type 2 diabetes and had not been treated for diabetes for more than 3 months. Participants were randomly assigned mulberry twig alkaloids (n = 360; 48.6% men; mean age, 55 years) or acarbose (n = 240; 53.2% men; mean age, 54 years) for 24 weeks. Primary endpoint was change in HbA1c compared with baseline. Researchers also assessed adverse events and gastrointestinal disorders.
      • At 24 weeks, change in HbA1c was –0.93% (95% CI, –1.03 to –0.83) and –0.87% (95% CI, –0.99 to –0.76) in the mulberry twig alkaloids and acarbose groups, respectively. The least squares mean difference was –0.05% (95% CI, –0.18 to 0.07) between the two groups, with no significant difference on the basis of covariance analysis.

      Now to find a rapamycin mimetic, in addition to withaferin, so I can pair them for  self-experimentation. Would help if Dr. Miller publishes his study, so dosage can be determined.

Plus if you look at ITP's other studies like rapamycin, most people aren't going to run out and buy it. They conduct the study in a controlled environment, and we know it's not ready for prime time until further research is done.

  • I'm not convinced. I felt a real difference the first time I did a senolytic dose. I don't think the Mayo would do this study and show improvements before doing this study if there was no effect.  I guess we will see in years to come.

    • JOHN Agree with you. I saw immediate, quantifiable  increase in my exercise performance  and qualitative improvement in color vision. Those improvements continue after 1.5 years of continuing Mayo Protocol.

      Note that several others on this thread reported similar results.

      JOHN Agreed, I am not convinced either.

      There have been so many positive reports from taking fisetin as a senolytic and people are just going to ignore those and listen to the ITP instead? Bizarre. Sure, you could say some of those are possibly placebo effect, but are you saying all of them are placebo? No way. What kind of person rejects every single report of benefits of fisetin that is out there and instead just blindly believes some guy saying their study said it didnt work without even reading the study or anything else? Are people that easily persuaded?

      Peter H. Howe Agreed Peter, there are many reports of positive effects from fisetin out there like yours. It really makes me wonder how people do research on substances. Do they just read a study and reject all other evidence and thats it?

      If there is an abundance of positive feedback, then that should be a huge red flag that maybe the study was done incorrectly instead.

    • Fred Cloud Forgot to mention that I am 81 yo male. My age ( lots of senescent cells ???)  may have contributed to the positive effects that I noticed. I was somewhat impressed as the positive effects were almost immediate--next day after my first treatment. My chinups/pullups increased by 25 % from 20 to 25. My exercise regime had been about the same for the past several years. What I perceived to be increased color vision was also immediate.

    • Peter H. Howe Twenty five pullups at any age is impressive. At age 81 its scary!

      Peter H. Howe Great to hear. But even younger people using fisetin on this forum have been getting great results, like fairy8i8 who is 38 years old. I guess I should tell her to ignore all her great results and stop using fisetin because Dr Richard Miller from ITP said so.  

      fairy8i8 wrote: "I have been taking 1200mg/day of fisetin in a single dose for 2 days (I am 56.8kg). I started doing this monthly over 18 months ago. After about 6 months, I started taking this dose twice a month because I noticed clearance of facial fine lines, which would return after a few weeks. Doing the dose every 2 weeks has kept visible skin indicators of aging decreasing. 

      At first, I did not think anything of the treatment. I am young (started treatment at age 38), and didn't figure I would see much effect. However, my mother, age 70, has had a nickel sized flat mole on her cheek since her mid 50s. She took 1 round for 2 days, and when I saw her a few months later, the mole was gone, and there were just a few small freckles there. I asked her about it, and she said it disappeared after taking the fisetin. After that, I started to track my own moles. The ones that have appeared over the years have all lightened significantly and diminished in size, and the few I've had since childhood have all lightened to almost skin color. 

      I have injury onset arthritis in my big toe, and that reduced to nothing (before walking 13 miles, running for 30 minutes on the Great Wall, not having run in almost 10 years, and then getting on a plane 3 hours later made it hurt again). I am recovering from that, but the pain is consistently decreasing again...."

      Michael Look for a brand that uses Novusetin fisetin ingredient. Lately, I have been using Wellness resources brand on amazon because they were offering 250mg caps so you dont have to take as many capsules.

      I am among those who have had distinct improvements from fisetin. I have  noticed different effects from different formulas. When I (orally) take the fisetin labelled as novousetin from  Dr’s best, after a few days I notice distinct  physical improvements on muscular strength and when it comes to joint health. When I (orally) take the more bioavailable formula from life extension “bio-fisetin” (a formula created for better absorption in the digestive tract) I notice mental effects - like clarity of mind and an uplifted mood.

       

      I have made my own suppositories based on the Dr’s best brand. But when using those suppositories I do not experience the same effects as I do from orally taken fisetin from Dr’s best.

       

      When it comes to homemade suppositiries I am of course a novice. So that experience does not say much. Just out of curiosity I will make suppositories from the life extension's brand as well.

       

      Ps. In my case I am sure the experience from the Dr’s best formula is not placebo.
