Answer:
Hello Debbie,

Thank you for your question.

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.

Does soy help fibroids or endometriosis?

Soy may support better endometrial health. Read a review article at http://www.revivalsoy.com/whysoy/article.html?article=endometrial&pid=3000

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 levels. Soy isoflavones will not show up on standard blood tests for estrogen levels that you get at your healthcare provider. Only special research tests can measure isoflavone levels in your blood, urine or saliva at this time.

Studies indicate that soy consumption can balance estrogen levels to a more healthier level. Soy may positively impact the way your body metabolizes estrogen.

Isoflavones are completely different from the body’s estrogen and act in many different ways. To read research about soy and menopause, PMS/hormonal health, bone, heart, breast and endometrium health, visit http://www.revivalsoy.com/whysoy/index.html?pid=3000

Human studies have not shown a downside to the consumption of soy protein as part of a balanced diet.

Soy is one of the oldest foods known to mankind and has been a staple of traditional Asian diets for thousands of years without any documented adverse effects. In fact, Asians are among the thinnest, longest living people in the world.

The FDA has not issued any warnings for soy protein or soy isoflavones. And, the FDA did not find evidence to warn any group of patients regarding soy use when it approved a heart health claim for soy protein in 1999 (i.e. soy protein lowers risk of heart disease). Some suggested to the FDA that soy could cause harm because it contains a chemical similar to the female hormone, estrogen, that might disrupt normal hormone levels. The FDA said the concerns were not supported by conclusive scientific research. While chemicals in soy do exert hormonal effects, the impact is “very limited” and much lower than that of natural or synthetic estrogens.

The FDA, American Heart Association, American Dietetic Association and American Institute for Cancer Research have issued official statements encouraging Americans to eat more soy protein. Major mainstream, peer-reviewed medical journals like New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Journal of Clinical Endocrinology, Circulation, Diabetes, Journal of Urology, Journal of Nephrology and Journal of Clinical Nutrition have published many articles on the health benefits of soy protein.

As always, consult your own physician to determine what is right for you, particularly if you have a personal or family history of cancer.
