header isoflavonas

Isoflavones are phytoestrogens, plant-based compounds whose biological activity is similar to that of estrogens.Soy is one of the principal sources of isoflavones, the most important of which are genistein, daidzein and glycitein.These substances have been shown to be useful against the signs of menopause, helping particularly to reduce the frequency and severity of "hot flashes".

Isoflavones help lessen the effects of menopause.

Menopause and its effects
Menopause is the time when women's menstrual periods stop permanently due to the decrease in the secretion of estrogen caused by a loss of follicular function.The decrease in feminine hormones (estrogens) causes signs to appear that are particular to each woman during this time.“Hot flashes” are one of the primary symptoms of menopause.They are experienced as a sudden feeling of intense heat and anxiety, indicated by an increase in blood flow to the surface of the skin around the neck, face and chest, and accompanied by sweating.Estrogen deficiency can lead to osteoporosis, a pathology that affects the bones and is caused by a reduction in bone tissue, the proteins that constitute its structure and the calcium it contains.As a consequence bones are weaker and more fragile than normal. They are thus less resistant to falls and break with relative ease when an injury is suffered.

Type 1 Collagen peptides
These peptides are amino acid chains bound by Type 1 collagen. This type of collagen is the same as that found in the bones and skin of our bodies.It is a major basic protein that ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin, cartilage and bone.It has been shown that collagen peptides promote collagen production in bone cells, helping to form new bone tissue.

Uses
Studies exist showing that taking isoflavones more than once a day helps relieve the symptoms associated with menopause, reducing the occurrence of "hot flashes" in particular.Other clinical trials show that isoflavones help mitigate the loss of bone mass, and its consumption can be beneficial in the prevention of osteoporosis.Phytoestrogens and vitamin D can act synergistically to help reduce bone resorption (process by which the body eliminates bone tissue).Vitamin D is essential in promoting the absorption and use of calcium and phosphorous as well as normal skeletal calcification.Type 1 hydrolyzed collagen has been shown to be a potentially useful agent in the treatment of osteoporosis since it has been shown to promote the production of osteoblasts (cells that participate in initial bone formation).
