Soya isoflavones (daidzein
and genistein) have attracted a great deal of research and some studies suggest that certain women with a soya-rich diet may have a lower risk of breast cancer.
Greiner et al., (2001a) and (2001b) reported an increase growth performance in pigs treated with soybean genistein (200mg/Kg) and daidzein
(200 or 400mg/Kg).
Due to the high amount of isoflavones (3.68 g daidzein
and 3.40 mg genistein in 100 gr extract) (4, 30) and transreservatrol (1.67 [micro]g/g) (31, 32), the Urfa pistachio nut has been determined as the second richest foodstuff in respect of isoflavones after soya beans.
Intestinal bacteria such as Lactococcus garvieae metabolize daidzein
to S-equol .
The most common chemical combinations included pairs of metals (such as lead and cadmium, and thallium and cesium), a trio of phytoestrogens associated with soy consumption (genistein, daidzein
, and O-desmethylangolensin, a metabolite of daidzein
), polyaromatic hydrocarbon metabolites, parabens, and caffeine.
The topical application of the soy isoflavones genistein, daidzein
, and glycitein has shown promise as a treatment for photoaging and photodamage.
Consisting of phytoestrogens (genistein and daidzein
), soy plays an important role in lowering the risk of cardiovascular diseases, reducing the risk of cancer, and the antioxidant effect (Ko, 2014; Reverri et al., 2015; Zhou et al., 2016; Zhang et al., 2016).
All active ingredients [Baicalin, Liquiritin, Indigotin, Indirubin, Sitosterol, Chlorogenic acid, Matrine, Daidzein
, Betaine, Oleanolic acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Folate] were suspended in DMSO and diluted to final concentration 25 umol L-1 in DMEM without FBS and antibiotics as the ligand supplemented media.
Soybean ISFs are mainly including daidzein
, genistein, and glycitein (Thomas, 1997).
developed a useful protocol based on MSDP coupled to LC for the determination of daidzein
and genistein in soybeans , obtaining high extraction efficiencies (greater than 80%) regardless of the use of lower amounts of sample and solvents than traditional methods.
is found in soybeans and is a constituent of Chinese traditional medicine Nao Mai Tong formula.
These compounds are less estrogenic than their aglycones daidzein
, genistein, and glycitein, respectively.
