(providing 60mg Soy Isoflavones, including 31mg Genistin/Genistein, 28mg Diadzen/Diadzein and 1.5mg Glycitin/Glycitein)Isoflavones comprise an important sub-group of an extremely important class of compounds produced by plants, known as the flavonoids. Most of us consume some flavonoids in the form of onions, apples, tea, especially green tea, red wine and red grapes. However, the isoflavones should be considered as quite a separate sub-group with a different chemical structure and nutritional properties. Soya beans contain predominantly two individual isoflavones, called genistein and diadzein.
Isoflavone antioxidant functionMost of the flavonoids are capable of acting as anti-oxidants. That is to say that they provide protection against the special different forms of reactive oxygen known as "free radicals” in our bodies. The isoflavones therefore help to protect us against "free radical” damage but they do so in conjunction with the rest of the flavonoid group and with other, non-flavonoid anti-oxidants like Vitamins C and E. The Sources and Actions of IsoflavonesSo where do we obtain these isoflavones and what is special about their action? The principal source in human diets is undoubtedly the soya bean. They occur also in other beans, such as kidney beans, lima beans and mung beans, but the concentrations in these are very unimpressive compared with soya beans.
There are some in linseeds but only a few people eat them. Therefore the peoples who consume the most plant isoflavones tend to be Eastern populations with a substantial regular intake of soya beans. The content of isoflavones in soya products tends to decrease quite sharply with processing, so the best intakes will be experienced by people who eat soya beans with little done to them except cooking.
Soya products sold in the West tend to be highly processed and are very much a small minority market, so the soya intakes and isoflavone intakes of our population are very low indeed. Japanese and Indonesian populations are quite different in this respect.
