Soy Isoflavones are a type of phytoestrogen, a plant-based compound that acts like a weaker form of oestrogen in the body. They bind to the same receptors as oestrogen and can help to reduce unpleasant symptoms of the menopause, such as hot flashes. In addition, clinical trials have also shown how Soy Isoflavones can support weight management and cardiovascular health.
Benefits of Soy Isoflavones
Soybeans are among the richest sources of phytoestrogens and in their most common form, include genistein, daidzein and glycetein. These can exert organ-specific oestrogenic or anti-oestrogenic activity, by blocking the receptor and mimicking weak oestrogenic activity. As well as supporting against uncomfortable menopausal symptoms, studies have also shown how Soy Isoflavones can reduce levels of cholesterol and support bone health, whilst decreasing the risk of osteoporosis.
