Phytoestrogens has recently been claimed to positively influence menopausal discomforts, including hot flashes. However, little is known about the influence of phytoestrogens on core body temperature during estrogen fluctuation at menopause. With many published findings that phytoestrogens could relieve menopausal complaints, the present review was aimed at assessing the effects of phytoestrogens on thermoregulatory mechanism during menopausal transition. Thephytoestrogens of interest in relation to human health include isoflavones, lignans, coumestans and stilbenes, which are widely distributed within nature...

Bone is a dynamic tissue that undergoes constant remodeling, with removal by osteoclastic bone resorption and replacement via osteoblastic bone formation and mineralization. Deterioration of bone mass with aging leads to osteoporosis. Bisphosphonates are potent inhibitors of osteoclastic bone resorption. Genistein, an isoflavone, exerts a bone anabolic effect by suppressing osteoclastic bone resorption and stimulating osteoblastic bone formation. The present study was undertaken to investigate the anabolic effects of a combination of alendronate and genistein on osteoclastic differentiation...

Okara (soybean residue) is a highly perishable food processing by-product from soymilk and tofu manufacture. It contains a large proportion of insoluble dietary fibre (40-60% on a dry basis), as well as digestion-resistant proteins, trypsin inhibitors and phytic acid. These factors contribute lead to the under-utilisation of okara. To improve the overall nutritional quality of okara, sequential saccharification of okara by Celluclast® 1.5L (cellulase) or Viscozyme® L (cellulase and hemicellulase) and fermentation by the yeast Yarrowia lipolytica were performed...

Estrogens play a key role in an extensive range of physiological functions in various types of tissues throughout the body in females. We previously showed that estrogen insufficiency caused muscle weakness that could be rescued by estrogen administration in a young female ovariectomized (OVX) mouse model. However, long-term estrogen replacement therapy increases risks of breast cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Soymilk contains plant-based protein and isoflavones that exert estrogen-like activity. Here we examined the effects of prolonged soymilk intake on muscle and its resident stem cells, called satellite cells, in the estrogen-insufficient model...

Background: Age-related estrogen deficiency leads to accelerated bone resorption. There is evidence that, through selective estrogen receptor modulation, isoflavones may exert beneficial effects against estrogen-deficient bone loss. Isoflavone aglycones show higher bioavailability than their glycosidic counterparts and thus may have greater potency.Objective: To summarize evidence, we executed a systematic review and meta-analysis examining isoflavone therapies and bone mineral density (BMD) loss in peri- and postmenopausal women...

In this work, we developed an HPLC method to simultaneously quantify and hence evaluate the stability, distribution, and antioxidant capacity of six isoflavones: genistein, genistin, daidzein, daidzin, glycitin, and biochanin A. Isoflavones have been described as having an important estrogenic activity to treat menopausal symptoms and can reduce postmenopausal bone loss and also participate in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. These beneficial properties are believed derived from their capacity to act as free-radical scavengers...

Food processing alters the physicochemical state of soy which can enhance chemical and enzymatic conversion of isoflavones to their aglycone forms. This study investigated the role of β-glycosidase from processed soy-ingredient mixture (SIM) or almonds, and examined the impact of isoflavone composition in mediating conversion to aglycones. β-Glycosidase activity was quantified using p-nitrophenol-β-d-glucopyranoside and SIM isoflavone extracts. Almond β-glycosidase activity was significantly (p<0.001) reduced after roasting (99% reduction) or steaming (97% reduction) compared to raw almonds...

Dietary flavonoids have been shown to extend the lifespan of some model organisms and may delay the onset of chronic ageing-related diseases. Mechanistically, the effects could be explained by the compounds scavenging free radicals or modulating signalling pathways. Transcription factors Nrf2, FoxO, and PPARγ possibly affect ageing by regulating stress response, adipogenesis, and insulin sensitivity. Using Hek-293 cells transfected with luciferase reporter constructs, we tested the potency of flavonoids from different subclasses (flavonols, flavones, flavanols, and isoflavones) to activate these transcription factors...

Secondary metabolites may be affected by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), which are beneficial symbionts associated with the roots of most plant species. Bituminaria bituminosa (L.) C.H.Stirt is known as a source of several phytochemicals and therefore used in folk medicine as vulnerary, cicatrizing, disinfectant agent. Characteristic metabolites found in B. bituminosa are furanocoumarins and pterocarpans which are used in cosmetics and as chemotherapeutic agents. Here we address the question whether AMF inoculation may affect positively the synthesis of these phytochemicals...

Ischemic cardiomyopathy (IC) is the major cause of heart failure. Conventional medicine has been proved ineffective with adverse effects. Soybean presents exciting adjunctive therapies and shows protective benefits for IC. However, the molecular mechanisms remain unclear. Isoflavones are the main bioactive components of soybean and may be protective against heart disease. Isoflavones were extracted by using an acidic-ethanol method and analyzed by HPLC. All patients with ischemic stroke were randomly and evenly assigned to two groups: the isoflavone group (80 mg day(-1), n = 100) and control group (80 mg day(-1) placebo, n = 100), and the whole period of the experiment was 24 weeks...
