Properties, uses and production technology of Soybean Isoflavones
Isoflavones are non-nutritive plant compounds, which are abundant in soybean products and several other plants. Genistein and daidzein are both isoflavones. Their chemical structure is similar to estrogen, a steroid hormone commonly known as estrogen.
Sources of plants: soybeans, lentils, and pods, as well as soybean products, such as vegetable meat, soybean flour, tofu and soybean milk. Among them, the isoflavones contained in tofu are higher than those in soymilk.
The main functions of isoflavones are:
1. It can reduce LDL cholesterol, help prevent or treat menopausal conditioning, and provide linoleic acid and linolenic acid for human body.
2, improve the balance of cholesterol in the blood and reduce the blood cholesterol level in the blood.
3, make the arteries more flexible and prevent heart damage.
4, enhance bone density, reduce calcium loss and reduce the chance of osteoporosis.
5, reduce the chance of cancer, especially breast cancer and prostate cancer.
6. Relieve menopausal discomfort, such as flushing, fever, emotional instability, headache, insomnia, fatigue, night sweat, vaginal dryness and astringency.
7. Treatment of Qi syndrome, flushing, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and cancer can help fight against coronary heart disease.
8, flavonoids can reduce the formation of free radicals and help the regeneration of other antioxidants.
Soybean isoflavone is a kind of natural plant estrogen which is beneficial to human body. The plant bioactive hormone extracted from natural soybean is similar to estrogen in molecular structure. It can bind with estrogen receptor in female body and regulate estrogen in two directions. It is safe and has no side effects. It's called phytoestrogens. It can alleviate osteoporosis and other symptoms caused by menopause, delay skin aging, improve skin quality, and make women's skin smooth, delicate and elastic. Because it can greatly improve the quality of women's lives, it is known as the "female charm factor".
Isomers of flavonoids
Isoflavones are isomers of flavonoids. The phenyl side chain of the gamma-pyrone ring is not attached to C2 but to C3, which has certain physiological activity. Natural isoflavones are mainly distributed in angiosperms. Leguminous, Rosaceae and Iridaceae plants are also found to contain five isoflavone derivatives, namely daidzein, daidzein, puerarin, puerarin-7-xylose and daidzein-4', 7-diglucoside. Isoflavones are generally regarded as precursors of hormones because their structures are similar to estrogens. They differ from flavonoids in that they have negative reactions to hydrochloric acid and magnesium powder.
Antioxidant, estrogen-like, anti-cancer and anti-cancer effects, prevention of Alzheimer's disease, prevention of cardiovascular diseases, prevention of breast cancer and improvement of quality of life
