Soybeans, also known as Glycine max, are a legume of the Fabaceae family. Known for their edible seed, soybeans are native to Southeast Asia with roots tracing back to the 11th century BC. Soy Isoflavones are the plant-based phytoestrogens, mainly genistein and daidzein, present in soybeans. By binding to estrogen receptors, the compounds have both estrogen-agonist and estrogen-antagonist properties. Soy Isoflavones have been used in the treatment of hormone-dependent cancers, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, menopause and diabetes.
