Rich in isoflavones the most active phytoestrogens in the human diet - may help to relieve menopausal symptoms.
After the menopause, the level of oestrogen in a woman's body falls and it is thought that phytoestrogens may provide a "substitute" for the body's own oestrogen, relieving symptoms such as hot flushes and dry skin.
The interest in phytoestrogens has developed because of the evidence that women in Japan and Asia who consume diets rich in these compounds, do not appear to suffer the same way with hot flushes and sweats as in the western world. In these countries, the diet is rich in soya containing foods, and menopausal symptoms are reported much less.
Amongst the main phytoestrogens in the human diet are the isoflavones, which are found primarily in legume type plants such as soya and red clover. Kudzu root is also a rich source of different isoflavone compounds, so Power Health has incorporated high quality standardised extracts from all three of these plants in these tablets.
Phytoestrogens can be consumed by purely increasing dietary intake, but this involves eating large amounts of legume food plants, such as peas and beans, with variable phytoestrogen content. Supplements such as Soya Isoflavones with Kudzu Root & Red Clover Tablets are a convenient alternative.
