Genistein prevention of hyperglycemia and improvement of glucose tolerance in adult non-obese diabetic mice are associated with alterations of gut microbiome and immune homeostasis.
Genistein is a isoflavone found in high concentration within soybeans and other soy products. Due to observed positive health benefits, scientists have been investigating the mechanisms and reasons behind its role in improving human health.
Mothers’ Consumption of Soy Drink but Not Black Tea Increases the Flavonoid Content of Term Breast Milk: A Pilot Randomized, Controlled Intervention Study.
A pilot randomized clinical trial (RCT), was used to identify if consuming polyphenol-rich beverages would alter the composition of breast milk.
Effects of age and soybean isoflavones on hepatic cholesterol metabolism and thyroid hormone availability in acyclic female rats
Many researchers are currently investigating the role isoflavones found in soy-based products play in improving human health.
A recently posted editorial was released asking the questions: Should postmenopausal women eat more protein? Or do the elite just exercise and eat better? To answer these questions, the editorial focused on an observational, cross-sectional study by Silva and Spritzer, that monitored common health markers such as body composition, metabolism, cardiovascular biomarkers and skeletal muscle index (SMI).
The effect of dietary protein source on serum lipids: Secondary data analysis from a randomized clinical trial
The role a plant-based diet plays in lowering serum lipids levels was investigated in a recent study.
In a recent study, the contribution of soy and other bioactives in reducing cardiovascular disease risk in plant-based diet are investigated.
This systematic review compared the impact of plant and animal protein on the conditions that constitute metabolic syndrome in humans.
Researchers at George Washington University used a rat model study to compare the effects of consuming genistein, a component of soy, throughout life versus beginning genistein consumption during breast cancer treatment with tamoxifen.
This systematic review evaluated the evidence on the association between consumption of soy and the risk of cardiovascular disease (including stroke and coronary heart disease).
Modifiable factors related to healthy aging are a critical area of research, since seniors comprise the fastest growing age demographic in the United States. In particular, a new study published by the American Academy of Neurology joins other studies reporting …
