Soy: natural ingredient of Wonderup

Some articles about the health benefits of soy isoflavones in the treatment of menopausal problems
Effects on the brain

The effect of soy phytoestrogens on brain biomarkers of cognitive ability (neurotrophic factor and production of acetylcholine) are comparable to those of estradiol (UCLA Center for Human Nutrition 900 Veteran Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90095-174).

The effects of isoflavones of soy protein on breast tissue
[Soy Protein Isoflavone Effects on Breast Tissue] - Presented at “Symposium on The Health Impact of Soy Protein” - Center for Human Nutrition at UCLA (University of California), January 20, 1998 by Stephen Barnes, Ph.D. Professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology and Biochemi-
stry and Molecular Genetics, School of Medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham

Soybeans, useful element to fight cancer cellsIsoflavones, so abundant in soy, have been shown to have biochemical and biological effects in a series of in vitro models and animals. These effects are based not only on the estrogenic properties of isoflavones, but also their role as inhibitors of tyrosine protein kinases, regulators of gene transcripti-
on, modulators of membrane trans-
porters and as antioxidants.

Predict result of the effects of diets rich in isoflavones, such as from soybean sources, on the chronic diseases (cancer and heart disease) should not be based on one of these mechanisms. For example, the prevention of osteoporosis by isoflavones (estrogen effect) is in contrast to epidemiolo-
gical data and laboratory findings suggest that soy and isoflavones prevent cancer.

However, the recent discovery of a new estrogen receptor (ERP) which selectively binds the isoflavone genistein provides new arguments to explain the estrogen paradox. The ERP shows a tissue distribution different from the classical estrogen receptors, being abundant in bone, brain, cardiovascular system, the genitourinary system, lung and prostate, but not in the breast. Thus, the isoflavones may be naturally occurring forms of a major new class of drugs called selective estrogen receptor modulators, currently in development for the treatment of the disease in postmenopausal women (UCLA Center for Human Nutrition 900 Veteran Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90095 More Abstracts -1742 Copyright 1998 Indiana Soybean Board).
