Overview
Scientists classify Soy Isoflavones from the soybean plant (Glycine max) as phytoestrogens. Phyto is a Greek root word meaning plant, so phytoestrogens are plant-based compounds that have estrogen-like activity. Because they are structurally similar to estrogens, isoflavones exert weak estrogenic activity in the body. However, when the body?s estrogen levels are naturally low, such as during menopause, there are insufficient amounts of estrogen to be fully effective. Because of their estrogen-like effects, isoflavones have been studied for a wide spectrum of health benefits from premenopausal symptoms to heart health. Several studies have shown Soy Isoflavones have beneficial effects on reducing menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, reduced libido, and vaginal dryness. Also, studies have shown that Soy Isoflavones can reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering harmful cholesterol (LDL) while improving healthy cholesterol levels (HDL). The reduction of bone mineral density, which is a major contributor to osteoporosis, may also be significantly improved by the intake of Soy Isoflavones. Some studies are also showing that the risk for certain types of hormone related cancers, such as endometrial, breast, and prostate, can be lowered.

Soybeans and soy foods like tofu are the best dietary source of Soy Isoflavones. However, many soy protein concentrates and soy products in the food supply may be processed with alcohol, which reduces if not destroys the isoflavone content. In order to provide the most efficacious product, our our soy products are processed using only water and are derived from soy that has not been genetically engineered (Non-GE).

There are four major types of Soy Isoflavones responsible for the health benefits associated with phytoestrogens; genistein, daidzein, biochanin, and formononetin.

Research Indicates
  • Exerts mild hormone-like effects similar to that of estrogen
  • May support cardiovascular health
  • May support bone health and be useful in reducing the effects of bone loss
  • May support healthy cholesterol balance
Recommended Dosage
  • Typical daily dosage ranges from 30 - 60 mgs; take 1 capsule, two to three times daily with a meal.
Cautions
  • If you are on kidney dialysis, pregnant or lactating, consult a health care practitioner prior to using soy products.
  • Studies have reported that Soy Isoflavones (phytoestrogens) act similar to the body's natural hormone estrogen. If you have or are susceptible to hormonally related cancers, such as breast, ovarian and prostate, consult your health care practitioner prior to using this product.
  • Consuming large amounts of Soy Isoflavones could suppress thyroid function and/or cause a worsening of hypothyroidism. If you have any type of thyroid disease, consult a health care practitioner prior to using Soy Isoflavones.
  • There is some concern about the use of soy-based infant formulas. Research indicates that exposing infants to high levels of Soy Isoflavones may cause problems with an infant's hormonal development.
