Isoflavones are a class of naturally occurring organic plant compounds found in soybeans, chick peas and other legumes. The primary benefit of soy comes from its isoflavone content. Isoflavones are antioxidants that combat damage caused by free radicals. They are a subcategory of phyto-chemicals and phyto-oestrogens. Because of its phytoestrogen content, soy is also believed to provide relief for symptoms of menopause. Phytoestrogens mimic the female hormone estrogen. Soya has long been used for many health benefits. Over the past 20 years, numerous clinical studies have confirmed its benefits.
