Soy Treatments May Improve Quality of Life in Post-Menopausal Women
Date Posted: 6/6/2005

A study by Dr. Kendall Dupree of Johns Hopkins University looked into the effects of soy on quality of life in post-menopausal women. Complementary and alternative therapies are being used frequently in the United States. Studies of post-menopausal women indicate that estrogen replacement improves physical, psychosocial and vascular symptoms. Because of the reduction in use of hormone replacement therapy, many women are choosing soy as an alternative.

Soy is a phytoestrogen, which is a naturally occurring estrogen found in plants. It contains isoflavanoids called genistein and daidzein. These isoflavanoids are similar to estrogen chemically and are capable of binding to estrogen receptors and exerting an excitatory or inhibitory effect.

The study looked to demonstrate that when administered in adequate doses to post-menopausal women, isoflavones will result in improved menopausal symptoms and related quality of life.

The study looked at data on 35 post-menopausal women not on hormone replacement therapy for at least six months prior to beginning the study. Participants completed a three-month clinical trial and were randomized to the active product, commercially available as Revival, with 160mg of total isoflavones vs. a placebo. Each participant completed the MENQOL (Menopause- Specific Quality of Life Questionnaire) at baseline, six weeks and three months.

Researchers found that women taking the active compound experienced significant improvement in their vasomotor symptoms, psychosocial symptoms and physical function by 36%, 40% and 30 % respectively, compared to the placebo.

"We conclude that post-menopausal women taking isoflavones with high concentrations of genistein experience improvement in their menopausal symptoms and therefore have an improved quality-of-life, as reflected by the self-administered MENQOL questionnaire," said Dupree.
