Isoflavones are substances of plant origin that are structurally and functionally similar to the oestrogens produced by the body and that can affect hormonal regulation.
In child-bearing age, they balance the activity of the estrogen produced by the body and have a protective action against some typically female cancers, such as breast cancer.
They reduce blood cholesterol levels and a lower incidence of osteoporosis after menopause.
Used by many women who refuse hormone replacement therapy as a remedy against hot flushes.
These substances, mimicking the activity of oestrogens, which have significantly decreased following menopause, also have an effective protective action against osteoporosis and cardiovascular diseases.
