Our endocrine system evolved in an environment without synthetic chemicals. Unfortunately, today were 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 hormones can also accept other molecules, placing our systems under duress.Fortunately, certain plants contain estrogen like compounds that are also accepted by hormone receptors - but with beneficial effects.
Today, tofu and other soy products are gaining popularity 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 isoflavonesan important class of bioflavonoids whose properties have been well researched. Of the seven isoflavones in soybeans, the most active are reportedly genistein and daidzein.
Planetary Formulas Full Spectrum Soy 1000 contains 8 mg of genistein, 34 mg of daidzein, and 62 mg of total isoflavones per two 1000 mg tablets.
Genistein and Estrogen -The subject of scientific studies since 1966, genistein research has been published in many respected journals. In vitro, genistein has been shown to bind to the same receptor sites as estrogen. This may help to maintain normal menstrual cycles and menopausal transitions by two seemingly paradoxical actions. By competing for human estrogen receptors, genistein may reduce the effects of estrogen in the body.Conversely, when there is too little estrogen (the situation during menopause), phytoestrogens - genistein and daidzein - may substitute for the lack of human estrogen, mitigating the effects of its absence.
Genistein and Cell Growth - One of genisteins most promising functions is its potential to inhibit capillary proliferation. According to studies done in vitro, genistein protects tissues by neutralizing vascular endothelial growth factor (vegF).Soybeans are the only significant dietary source of genistein; however, most Americans fail to consume soy foods in significant amounts. In Asia, the daily intake can be up to 20 times that of a Western diet.
