Washington: Scientists are exploring the role of natural estrogen-like substances in foods, like soybean isoflavones, in boosting bone health.Agricultural Research Service (ARS) physiologist Marta D Van Loan and other researchers at the University of California-Davis said that soy has been studied for a long time due to some of its properties.Soybean has potential to substitute conventional steroid hormone replacement therapy for postmenopausal women.
Or, some soy-protein compound other than the extracted isoflavones may have been responsible for the bone-protecting effects seen in some previous studies.Finally, the isoflavone doses used in the 2010 study may not have been high enough to produce a bone-sparing effect.The study is published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
