Soy

There are mixed reports on whether soy actually helps menopause symptoms, but I’m willing to give it a shot. Japanese women have much fewer instances of hot flashes and other effects of menopause than do American women, and they eat enough soy to take in an average of 100-200 mg of soy isoflavones daily. So I’m going to try to up my soy intake and see what happens.

Here’s the soy isoflavone content of a few foods:

Total Isoflavone, Daidzein and Genistein Aglycone Content of Selected Foods* (107)
Food Serving Total Isoflavones (mg) Daidzein (mg) Genistein (mg)
