Researchers from the American Vanderbilt University for several years been studying the relationship between the state of health of women during menopause and their diet and concluded that eating soy products for menopause helps protect the skeleton from the effects of osteoporosis, including fractures.
In a study of thousands of patients 24 experts identified 1770 cases of fractures of the femur, radius, and the bones of the shoulder, forearm and vertebral compression fractures.
Scientists have suggested that this coincidence is not accidental, and that soy foods nourishes the body isoflavones, special substances that strengthen bone tissue and contribute to the stimulation of the formation of its new cells.Because in the world there is a high incidence of osteoporosis and the disease does not manifest itself and is diagnosed only after fractures, that discovery of US researchers is of paramount importance.
impact of isoflavones on bone man can be explained by the fact that they come into contact
Substances isoflavones in their chemical structure belong to the group of polyphenols.They can interact with the tissues of breast and ovarian cancer, as are capable of binding to the estrogen receptor.
about how soy foods, and in particular, their isoflavones, affects the health of women in menopause, pre-menopause and menopause, the researchers argue, as well as how much soy is harmful and helpfulhuman organism.
The undoubted beneficial qualities of soy is that it is non-caloric, easily digestible, contains a lot of protein, vitamins, minerals and polyunsaturated fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6.In addition, soy foods has a beneficial effect on the human brain.There are scientific studies that show that soy can prevent Alzheimer's disease.
as the negative consequences of drinking soy experts called allergic reactions, colitis, diarrhea.In addition, soy foods in the diet can harm the health of the kidneys, especially if the person is already sick with urolithiasis.This is due to the fact that the composition includes soybean oxalate, oxalic acid serving as the material for the occurrence of urinary stones.
relatively isoflavones as there is evidence that they are able to have an impact on women's health.These substances are phytohormones, ie the main "competitors" hormone replacement therapy drugs, appointed by the fair sex during menopause.Doctors have argued for years about what is preferable - or phytohormonal replacement therapy.
Disputes eating soy
now actively studied the effect of soy products on the frequency of "hot flashes" in women during menopause and post-menopause.Data from epidemiological studies suggest that the frequency of hot flashes in women in those countries where traditionally consume a lot of soy, for example, China or Japan, below.
Some scientists are skeptical about this claim and believe that isoflavones may not have a noticeable effect on women's health and that those of the fair sex, who talk about reducing the "tide", probably just experienced a placebo effect.However, carried out in 2009 in Canada, studies say the opposite.Scientists have found that soy isoflavones beneficial effect not only on vasomotor symptoms, but also on the lipid profile of women during menopause.And because female patients for contraindications to hormone replacement therapy, they may be used as an alternative hormonal treatment.
about the beneficial effects of isoflavones on women's health and says another study conducted in Chile in 2008.It turns out that these substances have a positive effect on the prevalence of risk factors of cardiovascular diseases.
There is also speculation about the relationship between the consumption of soy products and breast cancer.This conclusion was made by specialists of the National Cancer Institute in the United States.They found that American women who are of Asian descent and began to eat more soy products in children, less likely to suffer from breast cancer.
And US scientists from the University of Northern Iowa denied the widespread belief that isoflavones help to normalize weight.Studies involving 200 women confirm the fact that these substances have no effect on fat deposits.
Despite the large number of scientific research on the effects of isoflavones on women's health during menopause, in order to more fully examine the impact of these substances on the human body and explain some of the conflicting results require a lot of time and a lot of extra work.With this agreement all professionals involved in the problem of the effect of isoflavones.
