Product Description

The beneficial effects of genistein and  other soy isoflavones have been shown in numerous published studies.  These studies reveal that those who consume the most soy maintain healthier  cell biological function and  proliferation.10,14-17

The three major isoflavones found in soybeans are  genistein, daidzein, and glycitein. Soy isoflavones exert both estrogenic and  anti-estrogenic effects, depending on the tissue in which they are acting.5,6 They are structurally similar to 17-estradiol,7 a mammalian  estrogen, and are thus called phytoestrogens. They also have  non-hormonal effects, including signal transduction and antioxidant activity.8,9 Soy isoflavones may inhibit bone resorption and help stimulate bone formation,10 without the side effects of hormone replacement therapy.

Other  constituents of soy have also demonstrated effects that help explain the health  and longevity of Asian populations who consume a great deal of soy in their  diet.

In response to increasing evidence that other constituents of soy may  provide significant cell-protective effects, a formulation has been developed  that provides soy extract standardized to isoflavones plus fermented soyfood  (Natto) that may provide  additional benefits. Natto enhances isoflavone absorption and provides other  nutrients contributed by the fermentation process.18,19 The enhanced  absorption of genistein, daidzein, etc., may be significant enough that only  one capsule of Super Absorbable Soy Isoflavones is required each day. The non-GMO Soynatto®  used in this formula is produced by a yeast fermentation process. Japanese  researchers have found that this type of cultured broth from yeast helps  promote healthy cell function and proliferation.20-22
