What is Genistein?
Genistein is one of the most abundant isoflavones in soy. Isoflavones belong to the group of flavonoids. Because of its similar structure to that of human estrogen it is also called a phytogestrogen, together with daidzein. Genistein is derived from the hydrolysis of the glycoside genistin. The main source of genistein are soybeans. Other legames, such as chickpeas, contain small amounts of genistein.

Health Benefits of Genistein
Genistein has many health benefits and works on several fronts: it acts as a phytoestrogens, antioxidant, anti-cancer agent and it could help people with metabolic syndrome.

Estrogenic effect
The estrogenic activity of genistein has been confirmed in many studies. Of all the isoflavones, genistein has the strongest estrogenic activity. The estrogenic effects of genistein may explain its protective action against osteoporosis and its possible effect on body weight reductions. Genistein is also used to ease menpause symptoms, such as hot flushes.

Antioxidant
Genistein is a strong antioxidant. Genistein removes damaging free radicals and reduces lipid peroxidation. Genistein increases the activity of other antioxidant enzymes such as glutathione peroxidase, superoxide dismutase and glutathione reductase. Studies have shown that genistein can also influence the growth of cells which are not hormone-dependent.

Anticancer
Genistein seems to reduce the risk for some hormone related cancers, principally breast cancer and prostate cancer. Epidemiological studies show that consumption of isoflavones may protect against breast and prostate cancer. High dietary intake of these cancers.
