As women face menopause, they are inundated with medicines and supplements to help ease their symptoms. Researchers wanted to see if a drink with high isoflavone content would be a more natural way to help manage menopausal symptoms. Study participants, 147 peri- and postmenopausal women, were randomly assigned to either 16oz per day of the control soy drink or ViveSoy, a concentrated drink that has 15g of soy protein and 50mg of isoflavones, for 12 weeks. Regular consumption of the ViveSoy drink significantly reduced peri- and postmenopausal symptoms like hot flashes, mood swings, pain, and more serious women?s health issues by 20%. Overall health-related quality of life measures for these women also improved by 18%. Researchers concluded that regularly drinking ViveSoy, which is quite popular in Spain, has a positive effect on several symptoms of menopause.
