Description: Phytoestrogen compounds that are extracted from soy, such as daidzein, genistein, and glycitein, are known as soy isoflavones. They are commonly used to reduce menopausal, PMS, and other female hormone-related conditions. They have been shown to help improve bone density, protect against bone loss, and reduce cholesterol levels. Interestingly, men with prostate problems are also helped.

Indications:

  • High cholesterol
  • Menopause
  • PMS
  • Prostate enlargement
  • Vaginitis

Precautions: Women with a history of breast or uterine cancer should avoid isolated soy isoflavone supplementation until further research shows benefit.

Dosage: Take 100 to 300 mg daily.
