Soybean Isoflavones 20:1 extract contain a high amount of flavonoids found mainly in legumes. The compounds have been associated with a wide variety of beneficial health effects including protection from osteoporosis to reduction in hot flashes and other symptoms of the female menopause. The estrogen-like compounds affect hormone secretion, metabolism, protein synthesis, growth factors, and may function as a natural anti-cancerogenic agent.
The soybean 20:1 extract also contains 20% phosphatidylserine (PS), which is a fatty substance that covers and protects the cells in your brain and carries messages between them. The substance plays an important role in keeping your mind and memory sharp. Animal studies suggest that the level of this substance in the brain decreases with age. Studies show that a key reason PS can enhance human cognition is because it can rapidly cross the blood-brain barrier and enter into brain.
In the brain, it relieves the smooth muscle cells of the brain and increases the blood supply to the brain. It is believed supplementation of phosphatidylserine may improves long-term memory formation and cognition, as it may increase the number of brain spurs, the fluidity of brain cell membranes, promote glucose metabolism in brain cells, and thereby make brain cells more active, improve alertness, and memory formation.
People use isoflavones for a variety of reasons, such as to:
- Provide relief for women menopause syndrome
- Reduce the risk for some forms of cancers e.g. prostate
- Lower cholesterol levels, which can reduce the risk for heart disease
- Promote a healthy gut function and protect nerve system
- Reduce cholesterol thickness in the body
