Recipe Snapshot: Jean Hailes RecipesPhytoestrogens

What are phytoestrogens?

In Phytoestrogen Bread [+Video]: Nutritional Information the JH naturopath and herbalist elaborates on:

“Phytoestrogens (plant oestrogens) are substances that occur naturally in plants. Eating phytoestrogens can produce either some of the same effects as human oestrogen (oestrogenic effects) or opposed effects (anti-oestrogenic effects). Which effects are triggered depends on existing levels of oestrogen in the body, and how the phytoestrogens bind to oestrogen receptors in the body”.

Menopause Symptoms

May a diet containing phytoestrogens relieve some symptoms of menopause?

In Savoury Phytoestrogen Bread: Nutrition Information the JH naturopath and herbalist also notes:

“For some women going through menopause, a diet containing phytoestrogens may help to relieve some symptoms of menopause, such as hot flushes”.

Different Differences

How many women benefit from a progesterone-rich diet to reduce menopausal symptoms?

In Phytoestrogens: Why Phytoestrogens May Be Beneficial for Women the JH explain:

“Some studies have shown potential benefits of phytoestrogens in regard to cardiovascular risk, bone density and menopausal symptoms. About a third of women who eat a diet that delivers amounts of phytoestrogens typical of an Asian diet (particularly from soy foods) find that their menopausal symptoms improve. This is because only about one third (and possibly up to a half) of all people have the specific gut bacteria that converts soy isoflavone (phytoestrogen) diadzien, to the more potent form, equol”.
