Isoflavones and womans health

There is evidence that diets which contain high levels
of phytoestrogenic isoflavonoids are associated with a low incidence
of osteoporosis and menopausal symptoms. Plant extracts such as red clover,
which contain high levels of isoflavonoids, have been used to reduce menopausal
symptoms and have been shown to reduce bone loss in healthy women.

Research shows that these phytoestrogens do not cause
any oestrogenic increase in breast density, which indicates that they are unlikely
to cause an increased risk of breast cancer.
