Additionally, diets that are rich in soy-derived phytoestrogen

The findings showed that phytoestrogen
interventions, such as dietary and supplemental soy isoflavones, were associated with improvement in daily hot flashes and vaginal dryness but not night sweats.
Headache prophylaxis from phytoestrogen
intervention was examined as part of a small doubleblind, placebo-controlled, crossover intervention study over 7-menstrual cycles of 23 women with prospectively confirmed PMS aged 18-35 years and with a BMI 19-30 kg/m.
We thought of trying plant-based phytoestrogen
dietary supplements, and when she came back after around two months, she happily reported a significant reduction in the frequency of her hot flashes and other symptoms, including vaginal dryness.
The results showed changes in serum PSA in the isoflavone-treated group compared to men receiving placebo were not statistically significant.[sup] Similarly, no PSA levels reduction was observed when a 12-month 83 mg/d isoflavone treatment was administered in 112 healthy men aged 50–80 years.[sup] The relationship between serum PSA level and urine phytoestrogen
concentration was further analyzed in 824 men of over 40 years old without PCa.
In vitro study of non-human primate osteoblasts is thus fundamental to prepare for in vivo studies of phytoestrogen
effects on primate bone.
Jessica Savage, an allergist and immunologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, and her colleagues correlated one-time urinary phytoestrogen
measurements from 7,909 subjects in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2003-2010, with histories of physician-diagnosed asthma and self-reported wheezing.
