Description

Over 1000 isoflavones have been identified in plants and a wide range of commonly eaten foods contain substantial quantities of these phytoestrogens.  Isoflavones are found mainly in legumes for example red clover, lentils, split peas, chickpeas, broad beans and the soy bean.  The Japanese have the highest total isoflavone intake estimated at 25 – 100 mg/day. In contrast, people in Western countries only consume a few milligrams each day.  Of the isoflavones isolated to date, 4 possess clinically significant biological activity: Formononetin, Biochanin A, Genistein, Daidzein.

Suggested uses               

  • Low or high levels of oestrogen
  • Pre and post-menopausal women
  • As a natural HRT
  • Osteoporosis
  • Cardio-vascular disease

 

How it works and what it benefits:

Isoflavones have hormone-modulating, antioxidant and cholesterol modifying properties.  These biological effects may be attributable to various mechanisms which involve interaction with cellular growth and replication.

In order for oestrogen to affect the body, it must enter the cells by binding to certain receptors.  Phytoestrogens also have the ability to attach to oestrogen receptors.  By binding to these receptors, phytoestrogens can block some of the human oestrogen circulating in the body from getting into cells.  As soy isoflavones are phytoestrogenes with an estrogenic activity which is typically only 1/1000th or less than that of human oestrogen, this blocking would therefore lower the total estrogenic effect on the body.  This effect may reduce side effects or toxicity of excessive oestrogen levels in the body.

  • It can reduce the frequency and severity of hot flushes and other menopausal symptoms.
  • In many cases, because of its unique plant properties, oestrogen dominance can actually be opposed because it acts as a selective oestrogen receptor modulator which partially blocks and thereby protects oestrogen receptors.
  • Female hormone imbalance   (PMT – menopausal symptoms), osteoporosis
  • May assist in the prevention of cardiovascular disorders.
  • Preventing free radical oxidation of cholesterol by reducing platelet aggregation, plaque formation and the adherence of plaque to artery walls, lowering cholesterol levels.
  • May also possess mechanisms which may inhibit cell damage including:
  • Inhibiting an enzyme which stimulates growth of damaged cells.
  • May aid in reverting certain damaged cells back into normal cells.
  • Inhibit oestrogen dependant cell damage through blocking excessive estrogenic activity.
