Menopause isn’t something women look forward to. With its arrival comes so many changes, and not all of them are for the positive. Think hot flashes, chin hairs, and a midlife belly pouch. Certain things are inevitable, and menopause is one of them. But, women can fight back against some of the unpleasantness by incorporating Genistein into their daily vitamin routine. Check it out.
What Is Genistein?
Genistein mimics estrogen, and it is an isoflavone found in soybeans. Because of its estrogen receptors, it has the potential to aid in cognitive functions, premenstrual syndrome, and menopausal symptoms. Long story short, it has the potential to alleviate some of the unpleasantness that hits during menopause.
Benefits Of Genistein
As already mentioned, Genistein has many health benefits. And, it’s not just for women. Here are some of the bonuses of taking Genistein as a supplement:
- Heart: It is thought that Genistein helps with heart elasticity and lessens the chances of hypertension, and enlargement of the heart.*
- Cancer: Prostate cancer risk could be reduced because Genistein decreases the levels of certain markers that pose prostate cancer threats. It may also be beneficial in protecting against breast, as well as hormonal related cancers by causing the death of cancer cells.*
- Bones: Genistein may be a defense against the loss of bone density. It may also help to prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women.*
- Brain: There is evidence that Genistein may play a role in protecting the brain from Alzheimer’s.*
- Skin: During menopause, estrogen decreases and causes, among other things, skin to thin. Genistein may help to slow down or reverse this process.*
- Menopause: Hot flashes, and hot flushes are two of the uncomfortable side effects of menopause. Genistein may help to decrease the intensity, as well as the frequency of the two. It does not work as quickly as prescribed hormone replacement therapy medications.*
