Soy Isoflavone Defense Factors
For most of human history, we existed in a world that was very different from the one today. Our endocrine system evolved in an environment without synthetic chemicals. Unfortunately, today we ™re surrounded by artificial hormone-mimicking compounds that disrupt the subtle biological processes that determine growth and reproduction. Receptors on our cells meant to receive natural bodily hormones can also accept molecules other than the ones they were intended to receive, placing our endocrine system under considerable duress.
Fortunately, certain plants contain estrogen-like compounds that are also accepted by hormone receptors in the human body – but with beneficial effects. Soybean is one of the plants containing the isoflavone genistein which can help regulate and maintain normal menstrual cycles and menopausal transitions. In addition, it provides a wide variety of the many health benefits associated with soy. Planetary Formulas Soy Genistein Isoflavone 1000 is a concentrated form of the essence of the soybean.
The Secret of Soy
Not surprisingly, it was Ben Franklin who first introduced America to soybeans. Always on the lookout for beneficial imports, he was intrigued by the soybean cheese he saw in England. Today, tofu and other soy products are gaining popularity here in the West, in good part due to the reported benefits to populations that consume a considerable amount of soy products. Some researchers have postulated that the high intake of soy foods by Asians may be a key factor in their low incidence of certain health problems that are common in the West. For example, epidemiological studies show that women in Asia have a higher occurrence of normal trouble-free menopause. The high concentrations of phytonutrients in soy include phytosterols and isoflavones “ an important class of bioflavonoids whose properties have been well researched. Of the seven isoflavones in soybeans, the most active are reportedly genistein and daidzein.
