Soy Background and Application

Isoflavones, a major part of the soybean-rich diet of Japan, are believed to be significantly responsible for the protective effects ascribed to their eating habits. Isoflavones consist of genistein, daidzein and glycitein.


Mechanisms of Action

Soy isoflavones exhibit weak estrogenic activity and bind to estrogen receptors in the body. Isoflavones hold antioxidant capabilities. Genistein scavenges reactive oxygen species and may inhibit lipid peroxidation.1 It may also support the activities of other antioxidant enzymes like superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione.1


Bone Health

Estrogen promotes bone formation in women. During menopause, production of estrogen declines. Isoflavones in soy carry strong enough effects to promote bone formation.2 Ipriflavone (a metabolite of daidzein) has been shown to prevent osteoporosis in animal and human research.2


Cardiovascular Health

Due in part to its antioxidant capabilities, soy prevents the oxidation of LDL cholesterol particles that damage arteries. Additionally, high ratios of arginine may promote nitric oxide formation which is vasodilatory. Isoflavones alone have shown hypocholesterolemic effects. Anderson, et al found consumption of soy protein rather than animal protein significantly lowered total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides in a review utilizing human studies.3 Soy also contains phytoestrogens called lignans and coumestans which may pose beneficial effects on heart and breast health.


Recent research shows soy may play a role in Type 2 Diabetes. A randomized, double blind, cross over trial of patients with diet-controlled Type 2 Diabetes consuming 30 g soy protein/day (132 mg isoflavones/day) had lower insulin, insulin resistance, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and free thyroxine (thyroid hormone). This may be of particular importance since those with diabetes have a higher risk of developing heart disease.4


Menopausal Health

Soy contains plant estrogens. These isoflavones act as weak estrogens in the body. When supplemented with isoflavones in isolated soy protein, women consuming 40 g soy had 26% less hot flashes within three weeks, according to a double blind, placebo controlled, multicenter, randomized study. At the end of the study, the same group reported a 45% reduction in hot flashes.5
