Menopausal women simultaneously face the challenge of menopausal symptoms plus the risk associated with non-communicable diseases. Cardiovascular diseases and

The intake of soybean isoflavones is the best choice as the natural treatment strategy for both symptom relief and disease prevention. This review focused on general information about soy isoflavones, their impact on menopausal health, isoflavone contents in different soy food, and their manufacturing suggestions. Founded in the literature evidence, soy food and isoflavones are satisfactorily effective and secure for menopausal health.
