Isoflavones are naturally occurring plant compounds that are particularly concentrated in soybeans. Genistein, daidzein and glycitein are the major isoflavones found in soybeans. NOW  Extra Strength Soy Isoflavones Vcaps have been extracted through a proprietary process that results in the highest natural levels of Genistein - a quantum leap over most soy isoflavone products.

Soy contains many individual isoflavones, but the most beneficial are genistein and daidzein. Isoflavones show tremendous potential to fight disease. They have been shown to help prevent the buildup of arterial plaque, which reduces the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke. Isoflavones reduces breast cancer by blocking the cancer causing effects of estrogen. They can also prevent prostate cancer by hindering cell growth.

Isoflavones can fight osteoporosis by stimulating bone formation and inhibiting bone resorption, and may even relieve menopausal symptoms. Soy isoflavones have antioxidant properties which protect the cardiovascular system from oxidation of LDL cholesterol. It is the oxidized LDL cholesterol accumulates in the arteries as patches of fatty buildup which blocks the flow of blood, resulting in atherosclerosis.

Genistein inhibits the growth of cells that form this artery clogging plaque. Arteries damaged by atherosclerosis can form blood clots, which often leads to a heart attack if the clot goes to the heart, or a stroke if it goes to the brain.

Isoflavones play an important role in protecting and maintaining strong and healthy bones. Evidence shows that genistein and daidzein prevent bones from breaking down. A study conducted at the University of Illinois and another at the University of Hong Kong concluded that consuming soy isoflavones can increase bone mineral content and bone density.

Another study at the University of Texas suggested that isoflavones may also stimulate bone formation. By preserving bone health, increasing bone mass and inducing bone turnover, researchers noted the potential role of soy isoflavones in preventing, and reversing the effects of osteoporosis.

The North American Menopause Society suggests that soy isoflavones can also be a natural alternative to estrogen replacement therapy for relief of many menopausal symptoms. It competes with the body's raging estrogen, tones it down, and regulate its fluctuations. Many women have reported a reduction in their hot flashes and night sweats when they take soy isoflavones.
