What is soy bean extract?
Soy bean extract is one form of a plant-based compound. Its molecular weight and structure are similar to human female hormones, also called phytoestrogens. For those with high female hormones, it reduces the harm; It can be supplemented for women with hormone deficiency to alleviate the phenomenon of female hormone deficiency.
20%~40% Soy Isoflavones
Plant name: soybean

The extraction process of Soy Bean Extract
Soybean germ or soybean is crushed and extracted with 80% ethanol, then Reflux extraction by heating three times and 2 hours each time. The three extracts are combined, recovered ethanol to no alcohol, and Continue to evaporate water to the extract with specific gravity d=1.20. Cool the extracted liquid, extract it three times with water-saturated n-butanol, combine the n-butanol items, and recover the n-butanol to no alcohol. Dried, crushed, and sieved to obtain soybean extract powder.
Introduction to Isoflavones
Soy isoflavones from soybeans belong to isoflavones in flavonoids. The active ingredients include Daidzin, Glycitin, Genistin Daidzein Glycitein, and genistein. Soy isoflavones are similar in structure to estrogen, bind to estrogen receptors, have estrogen-like and anti-estrogen activity, reduce osteoporosis and breast cancer, and improve the role of women’s menopausal syndrome. It also enhances cognition, prevents prostate cancer, and improves kidney function.
Soy isoflavones are bioactive substances refined from non-GMO soybeans. They are natural nutritional factors with a variety of critical physiological activities. They are pure natural phytoestrogens readily absorbed by the human body and can quickly replenish nutrients. Every 100 gram of soybean sample contains 128 mg of isoflavones. The protein isolate produced by traditional methods includes 102 mg of isoflavones. The soymilk contains 9.65 mg because soymilk contains 93.27% water, equivalent to every 100 grams of dry matter, and isoflavones 100 mg or more. Tofu contains 27.74 mg of isoflavones, and its dry weight contains more than 200 mg of isoflavones.
For heart health, 30-50mg of soy isoflavones per day can effectively lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels;
For menopausal syndrome, 25-50mg of soy isoflavones per day can reduce some symptoms of menopause (such as red hot flashes).
Do not take more than 200mg per day.
Soy Bean Extract Soy isoflavones are very safe in a wide range of consumption. A small percentage of people with a soy allergy should avoid soy products. Other than mild gastrointestinal distress (bloating, gas), consumption of soy isoflavones did not cause any significant side effects. Consuming concentrated isoflavone extracts in large doses, even up to 300mg daily, is relatively safe (estimated amounts include the daily diet of the average Japanese). The long-term effect of pure isoflavone supplements is still unknown, but its likely pro-estrogen result may appear when taken in large doses. It is prudent to keep the total intake of isoflavones similar to the total amount in the daily diet.
