I once talked about the role of estrogen in women, calling estrogen the basic hormone of women.
Because there are more than 400 tissues and organs in women’s bodies that are regulated by estrogen, the most obvious ones are the various organs of the reproductive system and the female body shape. In addition, women\’s heart, brain, blood vessels, skin, and bones are also affected by estrogen.
Estrogen should be maintained at a certain amount in a woman’s body, neither too low nor too high. If it is too low, various symptoms of aging will appear; if it is too high, it will lead to the occurrence of certain cancers unique to women.
A survey once found that the incidence of cancer among Eastern women is significantly lower than that among Western women. Why? The main reason for the investigative report is that Eastern women like to drink soy milk, while Western women almost only drink milk. Researchers have conducted in-depth research on soybeans and found that in addition to being rich in nutrients, soybeans also contain a special substance – soybean isoflavones, which are phytoestrogens.
The structure of soy isoflavones is similar to human estrogen, and it can regulate human estrogen in both directions. Soy isoflavones enter the human body. When it is found that the estrogen level in your body is relatively low, it combines with your original estrogen receptors and acts as an estrogen agonist; when your estrogen secretion is too high At this time, it can compete with your own estrogen for receptor sites, causing the body\’s own estrogen to become inactive, showing an anti-estrogenic effect. The two-way regulating function of soy isoflavones is very magical. It can always maintain estrogen in your body at a normal level, thereby promoting normal endocrine function, regulating menstrual disorders, and maintaining a normal menstrual cycle.
Many people do not know enough about this wonderful food that nature has given to women, or they have doubts about it. Once they find something wrong with their body, they would rather go to the hospital or take synthetic estrogen. I would like to use this health food to regulate my body. In fact, various diseases caused by the lack of estrogen or excess of estrogen in women can be solved in their daily diet.
Then let’s deepen the sisters’ understanding of it by elaborating on the role of soy isoflavones, a phytoestrogen.
◎ Revitalizes skin. Its estrogen-like effect and antioxidant effect can delay skin aging, significantly increase the thickness of the dermis, activate epidermal cells, lock deep moisture, and prevent skin from drying out and aging.change.
◎ Prevent obesity. It can effectively enhance the metabolism of sugar and fat in the body and achieve the effect of losing weight and improving the body.
◎ Improve the quality of sexual life. It can increase the nutrition of the epithelial mucosa of the reproductive system, delay vaginal atrophic changes, increase vaginal secretions, and improve the quality of sexual life.
◎ Prevent urinary and reproductive system diseases. It can increase glycogen in the epithelial cells of the urinary and reproductive systems, helping to form an acidic environment in the vagina, thus improving the self-cleaning function of the vagina, resisting bacterial invasion, and preventing disease.
◎ Reduce cholesterol and prevent arteriosclerosis. It reduces platelet activity and reduces platelet activity on the blood vessel wall by increasing the activity of low-density lipoprotein receptors, preventing excessive oxidation of low-density lipoprotein receptors, inhibiting the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells, and anti-thrombosis. Deposition and aggregation prevent the occurrence of arteriosclerosis and reduce the incidence of cardiovascular diseases.
◎ Improve sleep quality. It can effectively improve sleep quality.
◎ Delay and relieve symptoms of menopausal syndrome. It can supplement the lack of estrogen in women, and can also regulate estrogen levels to maintain estrogen at normal levels, thus delaying the onset of menopause and alleviating menopausal symptoms.
◎ Delay aging. It can maintain estrogen within normal levels, enable various organs and tissues of the body to fully exert their normal functions, and the human body\’s metabolic functions to operate normally, thereby preventing premature ovarian aging, delaying the arrival of women\’s menopause, and achieving the goal of delaying aging. Final goal.
Therefore, Soy isoflavone is an important health food that women cannot lack, and it is recommended to start supplementing it from adolescence.
