Aside from soy's famous anti-thyroid action, one of the isoflavones in soy (genistein) inhibits two crucial enzymes - 3-beta-hydroxysteroid-dehydrogenase (3B-HSD) and 21-hydroxylase. These enzymes are responsible for converting cholesterol to progesterone and cortisol. 3B-HSD also affects synthesis of other hormones. Inhibiting the aforementioned enzymes has repercussions for energy production, among other things - especially if there are any other issues with synthesis/conversion of cholesterol (e.g. lacking nutrients, defective pathway). There are other, safer/natural ways of influencing hormones (that are also cheaper - why is soy extract so expensive when the stuff is supposedly a major food crop?).
