Supporting Good Health During The Menopause Naturally Promensil assists in supporting your good health during your menopause as nature intended - with a natural source of plant oestrogens (phytoestrogens) called isoflavones. A Dietary Connection Oestrogens play a vital role in maintaining a woman's health and well-being over her lifetime. If oestrogens are so important to a woman's health, why would nature purposely deprive the body of them? Scientific research suggests that the answers may lie in our diet. Nature didn't get it wrong. Many of us in the West changed our diet away from the type of diet our ancestors ate--the same type of diet typically still eaten in Asian, Central American, and Mediterranean countries. A key factor in traditional Eastern diets is that they contain greater quantities of legumes, which are rich in a group of phytoestrogens (plant oestrogens) called isoflavones 1. Natural Dietary Approach Asian, Mediterranean and Latin American communities consume on average 30-50mg of isoflavones each day while it is estimated that women from Western countries, such as Australia, consume only a few milligrams of isoflavones daily 2. Asian type diets have traditionally included legumes rich in isoflavones such as lentils and soy. Legumes are a major source of protein in these countries while meat and dairy products have become a major source of protein in Western diet. More than 1,000 isoflavones have been identified in plants. Of these, four specific isoflavones have been shown to possess significant individual and specific biological activity. These are: genistein, daidzein, formonentin and biochanin A. What are the dietary sources of isoflavones? Isoflavones are found mainly in legumes, such as red clover, lentils, split peas, chick peas, broad beans and soy. However, not all legumes contain all four important isoflavones. For example, red clover contains all four isoflavones whereas soy contains only the two isoflavones daidzein and genistein. The isoflavone content of food also varies, for example red clover also contains 10 to 20 times the quantity of isoflavones found in soy.
