Extra Strength Soy Isoflavones Vcaps™ have been extracted through a proprietary process that results in the highest natural levels of Genistein - a quantum leap in potency over most soy isoflavone products.
Isoflavones are naturally occurring plant compounds (phytochemicals) that are particularly concentrated in soybeans.
Genistein, daidzein and glycitein are the major isoflavones found in soybeans.
Cancer Protection & Soy Isoflavones:
Breast cancer is less prevalent in Asian women, whilst prostate cancer is less likely to be found in Asian men with a soy-heavy diet.
Studies suggest that it is the soy isoflavones genistein and daidzein which may decrease oxidative damage to DNA, a marker for potential cancers. In addition, these isoflavones exhibit the ability to inhibit tumour cell growth.
Other studies suggest that soy may also help with the efficaciousness of cancer drugs, such as tamoxifen for breast cancer.
Cardiac Health & Soy Isoflavones:
reduces total cholesterol and LDL levels thus protecting against heart disease
helps prevent the buildup of arterial plaque, reducing the risk of CVA (stroke)
Menopause & Soy Isoflavones: Oestrogen deprivation following the menopause is a factor for developing osteoporosis,
cardiovascular problems, and unpleasant menopausal symptoms.
Genistein, the main isoflavone of soy, may alleviate both the short, and long-term, effects of menopause, including:
reduces the incidence and intensity of hot flushes and night sweats
improves memory function
improves bone mineral density to protect against osteoporosis
Vcaps are gelatin free - suitable for vegetarians.
