What are Isoflavones?


Isoflavones are phytoestrogenic agents.  This means that they contains plant estrogens, compounds that look similar to human estrogen and can interact with estrogen receptors in the human body.  The important thing to remember is that these plant estrogens only stimulate the receptors a fraction of the amount that the hormone estrogen would.  Therefore isoflavones can be used to treat conditions of high estrogen activity, by blocking the activity of the hormone estrogen.  They can also treat conditions of low estrogen activity by binding to vacant receptor sites and causing a bit of hormonal stimulation. Isoflavones are used to treat menopausal symptoms, like hot flashes, anxiety and depression, and PMS. 

Estrogen Explained


Estrogens are a group of hormones that are produced in the ovaries, in females, and in small amounts in the male testicles.  One form, estrone, is produced in the fat cells of both men and women.  Throughout a women’s life the balance of female hormones affects her overall health and vitality.  Both high and low levels of estrogen are associated with health problems.  Estrone is strong in terms of its stimulation of the body and must be kept in check by having adequate levels of the other estrogens, estradiol and estriol.  High estrone increases the risk of heart disease, cancer polycystic ovaries and PMS. Estrone becomes more abundant in women who are obese.  Estradiol is the most abundant estrogen in women of reproductive age.  It is responsible for female characteristics, protecting the bones and cardiovascular system, keeping the hair and skin vital and maintaining fertility.  High levels of estradiol cause the same problems as high levels of estrone.  Estriol becomes important in postmenopausal women but it only stimulates the body a little as compared to estrone and estradiol.  Optimal levels of estriol protect women from complaints of aging like heart disease, loss of hair, skin wrinkling, cancer and bone loss.

To enhance the body’s production of estrogen without taking estrogen itself there are several options.  By supporting the function of the ovaries the body can optimize its estrogen levels, relative to a woman’s age. Essential fatty acid and protein intake is important.  Essential fatty acids are used to make steroid molecules, the precursors to hormones like estrogens.  Primrose and borage oil are two sources of essential fatty acids that have a particular affinity for balancing female hormones.  Protein is what the body uses to build connective tissue, bone and fetal tissue under the direction of hormones, like estrogen.

Vitamins and minerals that support sexual gland function include vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin B complex, vitamin B6, zinc, beta-carotene, calcium, magnesium, selenium and zinc. Herbs can support estrogen production by containing plant estrogens (phytoestrogens); compounds that look similar to human estrogen and can interact with estrogen receptors in the human body.  The important thing to remember is that these plant estrogens only stimulate the receptors a fraction of the amount that the hormone estrogen would.  Therefore they can be used to treat conditions of high estrogen activity, by blocking the activity of the hormone estrogen.  It can also treat conditions of low estrogen activity by binding to vacant receptor sites and causing a bit of hormonal stimulation.  Some examples of plants that contain phytoestrogens are black cohosh, chaste tree, dong quai, red clover and soy.

Protein


Protein is second most abundant substance in our body, only water is more plentiful.  Protein makes up our muscles, ligaments, tendons, organs, glands, nails, hair and body fluids.  Bone growth is dependent on protein.  The chemical messengers that coordinate our body’s activities, hormones, and the chemicals that speed up physiological reactions, enzymes, are made of protein.  Our genetic material is the blueprint that instructs the cell how to produce the proteins that make life possible.  Proteins are composed of amino acids, linked together by peptide bonds.  When we eat protein the body must break these bonds in the digestive tract.  Then single amino acids, or amino acids in short chains, are absorbed into the body, where they are reassembled into whatever substance the body needs.

Some amino acids can be manufactured in the body from other amino acids and are thus called non-essential.  The amino acids that the body cannot produce and need to be taken in through the diet are called essential.

Protein powders can be used for many different health and performance enhancing purposes.  Recently high protein diets have made protein a popular supplement for weight loss.  Protein slows the rate at which sugar enters the body.  By avoiding spikes in blood sugar protein minimizes the storage of sugar as fat.  Individuals with blood sugar imbalances, like diabetes and hypoglycemia, will benefit from protein’s regulation of blood sugar.  Protein also builds muscle tissue, which burns more energy than other body tissue and can lead to weight loss.  Athletes, people who perform physical labour and anyone who is physically active requires protein to repair their tissue and build more lean tissue.  People who are recovering from illness or long periods of inactivity require protein to rebuild their body tissue.  The immune system is dependent on protein to make cells that protect our body.  Frequent colds and flus and chronic infections are signs that the body may need more protein.

There are a large variety of readily available protein supplements and protein processing techniques. The five main supplemental sources are whey, egg, soy, rice and pea, although other seeds and legumes are occasionally used in some supplements. The quality of a protein is apparent in its price. Higher quality formulas use superior processing techniques, and avoid binders, fillers, artificial flavorings and sweeteners.
