Vitanica PhytoEstrogen Herbal - 8 oz.
Vitanica Phyto Estrogen Herbal is a totally unique and progressive powdered drink formulation that takes advantage of the many health benefits of a daily high intake of phytoestrogens. Vitanica PhytoEstrogen Herbal utilizes non-GMO soy and flaxseeds. Soybeans are the richest source of phytoestrogens, supplying the isoflavones genistein and daidzein. Flaxseeds are the richest source of lignans. Black cohosh, alfalfa, and red clover are well known medicinal herbs that also provide phytoestrogens.
Phytoestrogens, sometimes called "dietary estrogens", are a diverse group of naturally occurring non steroidal plant compounds that, because of their structural similarity with estradiol (17-â-estradiol), have the ability to cause estrogenic or/and antiestrogenic effects. Chemical structures of the most common phytoestrogens found in plants (top and middle) compared with estrogen (bottom) found in animals.Their name comes from phyto = plant and estrogen = estrus (period of fertility for female mammals) + gen = to generate.
The similarities, at molecular level, of estrogens and phytoestrogens allow them to mildly mimic and sometimes act as antagonists of estrogen. Phytoestrogens were first observed in 1926 but it was unknown if they could have any effect in human or animal metabolism. In the 1940s it was noticed for the first time that red clover (a phytoestrogens-rich plant) pastures had effects on the fertility of grazing sheep. Researchers are exploring the nutritional role of these substances in the regulation of cholesterol, and the maintenance of proper bone density post-menopause. Evidence is accruing that phytoestrogens may have protective action against diverse health disorders such as prostate, breast, bowel, and other cancers, cardiovascular disease, brain function disorders, menopausal symptoms and osteoporosis.
Phytoestrogens cannot be considered as nutrients given that the lack of these in diet doesn't produce any characteristic deficiency syndrome, nor do they participate in any essential biological function.
