Soy Isoflavones

Soybeans (and other plants in the legume family like peanuts, chick peas, fava beans, alfalfa and kudzu) are very rich sources of the phytonutrient isoflavones. Isoflavones are vegetable substances, which can act on some of the same receptors as estrogen in the body.There has long been an association of a reduction in menopausal symptoms with the consumption of these biologically active molecules called isoflavones. Of the three main types of isoflavones (genistein, daidzein, and glycitein), genistein and daidzein have protective functions that have been shown to be the most effective in helping to reduce hot flashes and night sweats.The soybean has been consumed by many women as a natural solution for treating menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats. Soybeans have the highest amounts of genistein and daidzein, which are said to be responsible for their therapeutic effects. One review analyzed various clinical trials according to the specific isoflavones contained in commercially available supplements and found that supplements containing high amounts of genistein significantly reduce hot flash symptoms.3 Because high amounts of genistein are important, the soy isoflavones concentrates used in the Estroven® products closely maintain the isoflavones ratios of the whole soy beans.Estroven® natural health products that contain Black Cohosh and Soy:
