Soy damages adrenal function too

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?).

Product composition is excellent - best I found on the market and price is competitive. The item was shipped quickly and with a minimal cost to me (ordering from Canada). Thank you.

First of all, I want to point out to all pre and post menopausal women out there that in my opinion and experience this product is one of the most effective in relieving menopausal symptoms (such as annoying hot flashes) I have ever tried. All you need is one capsule per day. Forget dangerous Hormone Replacement Therapy! This wonderful product in combination with the ingredients in “Hot Plants” ™ (for her), along with Natural Progesterone cream will make you feel like your old young self again! And you can find them all here in iherb.
