Revival Soy Doctor Q&A's
Name: Charlotte

Question:
I weaned myself off of PremPro and have been taking Remifemin, 1 tablet twice a day for 4 months and have not had any relief from hot flashes and night sweats. What should I try now? I would like to sleep through the night again. I am 58 years old and no longer have periods.

Answer:
Hello Charlotte,

General background information on HRT:

Menopause is part of the natural aging process for women. Decreasing levels of estrogen production by the ovaries as women age cause many symptoms, most commonly hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, weight gain and vaginal dryness. Lack of estrogen also predisposes a woman to heart disease, osteoporosis (bone loss) and memory problems. Traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the replacement of the lost estrogen with prescription estrogens derived from a variety of sources including equine, plant-based, or lab synthesized compounds.

HRT has been shown to decrease menopausal symptoms, but recent research shows that HRT increases risk of heart disease, breast cancer, uterine cancer, blood clots and gallbladder disease, and has numerous side-effects like weight gain, bloating, irritability, hair loss and nausea. You need to speak with your own physician about these concerns. The NIH halted the largest ever HRT study because of significant negative results. Millions of American women are now discontinuing HRT for these reasons at the advice of their doctors. Leading doctors are quoted recommending that HRT, if used at all, be limited to a few years to control menopausal symptoms. Breast cancer survivors can't take HRT either. This has left millions of women looking for alternatives. Many medical doctors are now recommending soy protein as a safe, effective alternative to alleviate menopausal symptoms, protect the heart and maintain bones, without increasing the risk of breast or endometrial cancer. In fact, many women healthcare leaders are calling soy the "perfect alternative" to HRT.

How can Revival help with menopause?

Soy protein can significantly improve your mid-life comfort and health. Symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, fatigue, vaginal dryness, loss of libido, headaches, anxiety and insomnia can be controlled with Revival. Most women see much better comfort within several days to several weeks of use. One serving of Revival is equal to the daily Japanese intake of soy isoflavones and can produce good results for you. We recommend the daily Asian diet amount - about 160 milligrams per day. One serving of Revival provides you with this level.

Will soy protein raise my estrogen levels?

No. Soy protein will NOT raise or add to your estrogen levels. Soy will raise your soy isoflavone (phytoestrogen) levels. Isoflavones are completely different from the body’s estrogen and act in many different ways. For instance, soy protein promotes bone and heart health, but doesn’t cause breast or endometrial stimulation. Eating soy has not been linked to breast and endometrial cancers. Soy isoflavones WILL NOT show up on any standard blood tests for estrogen that you get at your medical doctor. Only special research tests can measure isoflavone levels in your blood or saliva at this time.

A new class of soy nutrients has actually been found to be “antiestrogenic” for breast tissues:

A class of newly described soy nutrients, different from soy isoflavones, have potent antiestrogenic effects on estrogen receptors in the breast tissues. The new class of soy nutrients is called glyceollins (pronounced 'gli - see - oh -lens). Researchers observed a strong "antiestrogenic effect" of glyceollins on estrogen receptor signaling which suppressed estrogen-induced proliferation of human breast cancer cells. This important new research emphasizes our point that you simply can't get the benefits of soy protein in a soy isoflavone PILL. At the present, we don't feel that chemically-purified soy pills are safe or effective. Furthermore, previous studies using isolated soy isoflavones are now irrelevant because the antiestrogenic effect of glyceollins must be taken into account. Revival Soy is the best way to eat soy protein and soy nutrients. With Revival, you get the protein, isoflavones, saponins, glyceollins and ALL of the other soy nutrients. We encourage you to explain this difference to your friends and family who use soy pills.

How much Revival do I have to eat to get results?

The key to soy’s benefits is eating enough of it on a daily basis to make a real health difference. The traditional Japanese eat 4 - 6 servings of soy per day giving them a large amount of soy isoflavones. Our diet contains almost no soy. Who can blame us? Unless we grow up eating soy, it simply tastes bad. And who can stand to stuff themselves with enough tofu or soy milk every day to get the real health benefits?

Revival is over 6 times more concentrated in soy isoflavones than other soy foods (like soy milk, tofu, or soy nuts) or soy powders on the market. This means you don’t have to stuff yourself with soy to get enough isoflavones to make a real health difference! A single serving of Revival gives you the same amount of soy isoflavones that a traditional Japanese person gets on a daily basis (~ a pound of tofu!).

A single Revival serving is equivalent to 6 servings of soy foods!
