Medicinal Garden information:
Isoflavones in natural soy foods help balance hormone levels and some estrogenic activity in menopause.
Consuming soy protein seems to modestly decrease the frequency and severity of hot flashes in some menopausal women; Isoflavones found in soy, such as genistein, are believed to have estrogen-like effects in the body.Reference link
