Soy Isoflavones on Hot Flashes
The study was published in Menopause: The Journal of the North American Menopause Association. Researchers from the University of Delaware analyzed the results of 19 different studies of the effects of soy on menopause and ascertained that there is a link between soy consumption and less terrible hot flashes.
According to The Huffington Post, the study found that women who consumed 54mg of the estrogen-like isoflavones found in soy — about what one would get from two large glasses of soy milk or seven ounces of tofu — reported a 20.6% decrease in frequency of hot flashes and a 26% decrease in their severity.
