Brassinosteroids (BS) are natural low-molecular-mass bioregulators, i.e., plant hormones  that are present in all vegetable matter and possess growth-modulating and adaptogenic activity. For example, noticeable growth-stimulating and adaptogenic effects were observed if various agricultural crops were treated with BS at doses of 5–20 mg/hectare. Currently, Epin and Epin Plus, the active ingredients of which are the phytohormones 24-epibrassinolide and 28-homobrassinolide, are the most well-known formulations.
Studies of the effects of BS on animals showed that they could affect reproduction, steroidal hormone balance, and several biochemical and physiological parameters that were clearly indicative of in vivo stimulatory and adaptive changes . The similar activities of BS in plants and non-plants made these compounds potentially valuable for medical applications so the biologically active additive Phytonol based on 24-epibrassinolide was developed ; increased work capacity;...
