The effects of soy-derived phytoestrogens on serum lipids and lipoproteins in moderately hypercholesterolemic postmenopausal women



The effects of soy-derived phytoestrogens on serum lipids and lipoproteins in moderately hypercholesterolemic postmenopausal women



Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism 87(1): 118-121



Postmenopausal women are at an increased risk of developing coronary artery disease (CAD). This increase is due primarily to elevated cholesterol concentrations accompanying the loss of endogenous oestrogen secretion. Recently, the consumption of soya foods has been shown to reduce serum cholesterol concentrations. Phytoestrogens (PE) have been proposed as the responsible agents of the hypocholesterolaemic effect of soya foods.
