Revival Soy Doctor
I have had a hysterectomy, hernia repair, and gall bladder removed and blood clots all in 1 year. Hot flashes are bad. I take soy and black cohosh. Please help me to get over these flashes.
Hello Ms. Mcquade,
Before we get started, please read the following: We do not give medical advice. We provide nutritional information regarding Revival Soy products and information available in the public domain for the uses of soy. We advise you to discuss your personal medical issues with your physician. I hope our information will be helpful to you.
Will Revival Soy help my menopausal symptoms?
Many studies now show benefits of soy for menopausal symptoms:
Most have 1 delicious Revival shake or 1 Revival Soy Protein Bar once a day with great relief!
The National Institutes of Health’s (U.S. Government) Medical Encyclopia lists “fewer menopausal symptoms” as a potential benefit of soy:
Revival Soy was created by Dr. Tabor to help his own mother handle midlife. You can read her story at http://www.revivalsoy.com/home/about/index.html?pid=3000
Scientists became very interested in soy's potential role for menopause support after demographic studies revealed that only 9% of women living in Asia, where the diet is rich in soy, experienced hot flashes during midlife, in contrast to almost 80–90% of Western women who suffer through menopause.
Many scientists feel that soy isoflavones, which are similar to the body's estrogen in structure, may support health by lightly binding to estrogen receptors, thus, producing some of the benefits of estrogen without negative side effects.
Because soy may support menopause, energy, bone and heart health, many doctors now recommend soy as a safe, effective dietary supplement to help women support a healthy midlife transition and beyond.
How much soy should I consume?
How much Revival do I have to eat to see results?
Eating enough soy protein and soy isoflavones is essential to obtain soy’s full benefits. An international panel of leading soy researchers determined that 100 to 160 milligrams of soy isoflavones per day are likely needed to achieve all of the potential benefits of soy isoflavones. The FDA states that 25 grams of soy protein per day, with a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. The American Heart Association recommends 50 grams of soy protein per day.
We have an excellent summary of this at http://www.revivalsoy.com/whysoy/article.html?article=amount&pid=3000
How soon will I see results?
Our suggested usage is to enjoy 1 naturally-concentrated (6x) Revival bar or shake per day. Use Revival's baked soy chips, soy pasta, soy nuts, & soy "coffee" to boost protein intake.
EXPERT PANEL RECOMMENDATIONS:
Appropriate Isoflavone Food Fortification Levels: Results of a Consensus Conference.

Several leading isflavone researchers convened recently to establish appropriate isoflavone food fortification levels. A consensus was achieved after reviewing human studies in the areas of menopause, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. For the relief of menopausal symptoms, an intake of 60 mg aglycones was proposed, but consumption of soy protein in conjunction with the isoflavones was not specifically recommended. For improvement in bone mineral density, consumption of 60 to 100 mg aglycones per day, without any concomitant soy protein, was suggested. The consensus panel determined that the minimal intake needed to reduce serum LDL-cholesterol is between 37 and 62 mg aglycones per day, depending on prior cholesterol status (normo- vs. hypercholesterolemia), in conjunction with approximately 25 g of soy protein. The minimal intake for potentially reducing the risk of cancers of the breast, colon and prostate in humans was suggested to be between 50 and 110 mg per day of aglycones. No concomitant soy protein might augment activity of the isoflavones. For health benefits, recommended aglycone intakes ranged from 60 to 100 mg per day (100 to 160 mg glycosides). However, the panel recommended an isoflavone intake of 60 mg of aglycones per day (100 mg glycosides) as a reasonable and responsible food fortification level. The issue of whether soy protein needs to be consumed in conjunction with isoflavones to obtain optimal health benefits requires further experimental investigation.
RECOMMENDED LEVEL OF SOY PROTEIN AND SOY ISOFLAVONES:
Soy Protein (1)
Total Isoflavones (2)
Heart Health: 60 - 105 mg/day
Menopausal Symptoms: 100 mg/day
Bone Mineral Health: 100 - 160 mg/day
Breast Health: 85-183 mg day
Colon Health: 85-183 mg/day
Prostate Health: 85-183 mg/day
Food Fortification Level: 100 mg/day

What about black cohosh, red clover, dong quai, vitex or other herbs?
Asian countries have consumed soy for thousands of years as part of their daily diet. Because of this, much more is known about the long-term safety and effectiveness of soy protein and soy isoflavones versus herbs, such as black cohosh, red clover, dong quai and vitex (which are not natural human foods and have never been consumed by entire populations as part of the diet). Studies show that soy protein plus isoflavones provide additional health benefits that estrogenic herbs do not, such as weight loss, energy, heart health and bone support. http://www.revivalsoy.com/whysoy/index.html?pid=3000
Herbal products are often chemically-concentrated into pill form. Because less is known about the long-term safety and effectiveness of chemically-concentrated herbs, many doctors are hesitant to recommend herbal pills. Revival Soy is naturally concentrated using certified, genetically-pure soy (non-GMO).
