It was observed in a recent study, as a second outcome from the OPUS study, that daily supplementation for two years with 80-120 mg of soy hypocotyl isoflavones does not cause adverse effects in healthy menopausal women and can be regarded as safe. In vitro and animal tests with highly, sensitized models, genistein only has […]
Yes. In our experience there were never any adverse effects reported in healthy subjects. It is not advised for people with soy allergy. SoyLife® can cause gastro intestinal discomfort that usually disappear after a while.
Glycosides (Genistin, Daidzin, Glycitin) are isoflavones which have a sugar molecule bind to their structure. Aglycones (Genistein, Daidzein, Glycitein) are metabolites of the glycosides, without this sugar molecule that can be absorbed from the gut. They are the bioactive and absorbed fraction, where all health benefits are related to. Our body is well taking care […]
Isoflavones bind preferential to the estrogen receptor-? and causes a weak estrogen or antiestrogen effect.
Soy germ contains the highest natural level of isoflavones combined with more than 40 other phytonutrients.
Daidzein: 50-70%, Genistein: 10-20%, Gycitein: 30-40%, which are present in the glycoside form.
Isoflavones are natural phyto-estrogens; which have an estrogens-like activity resulting in hormone balancing effects.Isoflavones are natural phyto-estrogens; which have an estrogens-like activity resulting in hormone balancing effects.
SoyLife isoflavones derive from soy germ hypocotyl. Therefore SoyLife® contains beside the isoflavones over 40 phytonutrients. They have a higher content in daidzein than in the beans. For most SoyLife products we ensure the phytonutrients content because of our gentle manufacturing process.
