Soy Isoflavones are a class of phytoestrogens — plant-derived compounds with estrogenic activity. Soybeans and soy products are the richest sources of isoflavones in the human diet.
Soybeans are a rich source of isoflavones, a class of phytoestrogens found predominantly in legumes and beans. Soy isoflavones are heterocyclic phenols with structural similarity to estradiol-17beta and selective estrogen receptor modulators. Actions at the cellular level depend on the target tissue, receptor status of the tissue, and the level of endogenous estrogen.

Soy Isoflavones has been shown to slightly reduce levels of LDL cholesterol, the “bad” kind. A landmark 1995 study that looked at nearly 40 controlled clinical trials found that replacing 50 grams of animal protein a day with 50 grams of soy protein lowered LDL cholesterol by nearly 13 percent. But a subsequent American Heart Association update found that the reduction is actually closer to 3 percent—not to mention the fact that to get 50 grams of soy protein you’d need to eat about a pound of tofu or drink a half gallon of soy milk.
Soy Isoflavones are a type of phytoestrogen, meaning they are plant-derived compounds that weakly mimic the effect of estrogen. Because estrogen plays a role in bone health, it’s been suggested that soy isoflavones may reduce osteoporosis risk. But the evidence for this is mixed; some studies have found that women nearing menopause who consume soy protein are more likely to increase their bone density than women whose diets lack soy extract 40% isoflavones, but other studies have found no impact.
Research on isoflavones soy’s effect on hot flashes has been similarly mixed. The North American Menopause Society’s 2015 position statement on nonhormonal treatment of hot flashes says that supplements containing soy isoflavones may help, but more research is needed. And some evidence suggests that the supplements may increase breast cancer risk, as discussed below, so for now we think it's prudent to avoid them.
1.Applied in food field, it is added into kinds of beverage, liquor and foods as functional food additive.
2.Applied in health product field, it is widely added into various kinds of health products to prevent chronic diseases or relief symptom of climacteric syndrome.
3.Applied in cosmetics field, it is widely added into the cosmetics with the function of delaying aging and compacting skin, thus make skin much smooth and delicate.
