      Phytoestrogens, which are widely distributed in plants, are structurally similar to mammalian estrogens and can thus bind weakly to estrogen receptors ().The 3 major classes of phytoestrogens are isoflavones, which are concentrated in soybeans and soy products but are also found in other legumes; lignans, which are distributed in seeds, whole grains, berries, fruit, vegetables, and Cited by: Taking melatonin daily in combination with conventional medication seems to help control a type of inflammatory bowel disease called ulcerative colitis.

Prostatic disease. Phyto-oestrogens are also recommended as anti-androgens and hence are of possible protective benefit with regard to carcinoma of prostate and benign prostatic hyperplasia.

Whether they also reduce sperm count has not been examined. Isoflavones in : Dr Colin Tidy. Prostatic cancer is a hormone-dependent disease and oestrogens retard the growth of prostatic tumours by interfering with the action of testosterone. Oestrogen increases the level of sex hormone-binding globulin that binds testosterone, resulting in lower free testosterone levels, thereby decreasing androgenic stimulation of the by: Phyto-oestrogens have weak oestrogenic potency and anticancer effects.

Thus, these phytochemicals have a possible role in the prevention of hormone-dependent diseases such as prostatic cancer. International comparisons, small randomised trials and experimental data from animal models and cell lines suggest a possible protective association between dietary phyto-oestrogens, including isoflavones and lignans, and the development of prostate cancer (Goetzel et al, ; Perabo et al, ).Results from prospective epidemiological studies of dietary phyto-oestrogen intake and Cited by: Phyto-oestrogens are naturally occurring compounds found in plants to varying degrees.

The classic definition of a phyto-oestrogen is a non-steroidal plant compound that is able to exert oestrogenic effects.

This review includes a discussion of the consumption of phyto-oestrogen-rich foods such as soy, a source of isoflavones, and whole grain products, which contain lignans, and their role in the prevention of breast, prostate, and colon cancer.

In women, a soy-containing diet is only slightly protective Cited phyto-oestrogens and the pathogenesis of prostatic disease book   This view follows the finding that plasma and urinary levels of phyto-oestrogens are much higher in areas where cancer incidence is low in comparison with areas of high cancer incidence.

The phyto-oestrogens are comprised of two main groups; the isoflavones and lignans. Of the isoflavones, genistein and daidzein have been the most widely by:   Read Phyto-oestrogens: why they are good news online.

Phyto-oestrogens are oestrogenic compounds found in plants and consist of isoflavones, lignans and coumestans. Epidemiological studies provide evidence for a protective role of isoflavones, and to a lesser extent lignans, against the development of numerous chronic diseases, including several cancers, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.

If the abundance of phyto-oestrogen-enriched foods in health-food shops and supermarkets is anything to go by, the public is convinced of the health benefits of these weakly oestrogenic, plant-derived steroids. Enthusiasts promote plant oestrogens as the natural alternative to hormone replacement therapy (HRT), but, as with other “food therapies”, public acceptance has raced ahead of Cited by: Phyto-oestrogens are getting a lot of attention for their health benefits especially isoflavones as soy-products are the most commonly eaten phyto-oestrogen containing food and as further proof amounts for their role in relieving and decreasing vasomotor symptoms during menopause and managing bone health especially important for post-menopause.

At present, however, no definite recommendations can be made as to the dietary amounts needed for prevention of disease. This review deals with all the above-mentioned aspects of phyto-oestrogens.

Key Words: cancer, coronary heart disease, epidemiology, isoflavone, Cited by: The phyto-oestrogens belong to the family of plant substances known as flavonoids, and all have oestrogenic effects.

The oestrogenic flavonoids are sometimes collectively referred to as the phenolic phyto-oestrogens because of the structural similarity of the oestrogen molecule—the diphenylpropane ring structure—which allows phyto-oestrogens to bind to the oestrogen receptor.

They have a similar chemical structure to our own body's oestrogen (one of the main female hormones), and are able to bind to the same receptors that our own oestrogen does. They do, however, behave differently to. A phytoestrogen is a plant-derived xenoestrogen (see estrogen) not generated within the endocrine system, but consumed by eating phytoestrogenic called a "dietary estrogen", it is a diverse group of naturally occurring nonsteroidal plant compounds that, because of its structural similarity with estradiol (β-estradiol), have the ability to cause estrogenic and/or antiestrogenic.

;32(12):HSHS Phytoestrogens are trace biochemicals produced by plants that act like estrogens in animal cells and bodies. A number of epidemiological studies have reported a connection between high dietary intake of phytoestrogens and lower rates of certain cancers, cardiovascular problems, and menopausal symptoms.

1 It is believed that phytoestrogens could. Phytoestrogens are plant-based compounds that have similar effects to estrogen produced in the body. Often referred to as "dietary estrogen," these compounds are believed to prevent or treat conditions associated with estrogen deficiency, such as osteoporosis or menopausal hot flashes.

The interest in Phytoestrogens has developed because of the epidemiological evidence that diets rich in these compounds have led women in Japan and Asia to appear to have a much lower incidence of "Western diseases" such as heart disease, osteoporosis, and cancers of breast, colon, and womb.

Oestrogens produce significant beneficial effects on skeletal growth and bone maturation. In old age oestrogens are better predictors of bone fractures than androgens.

Oestrogens exert effects on the brain: on cognitive function, co-ordination of movement, pain and affective state, and are maybe protective of Alzheimer's by:   Compositions enriched with natural phyto-oestrogens or analogues thereof selected from Genistein, Diadzein, Formononectin and Biochanin A.

Estrogen is considered a female sex hormone produced by the ovaries in women. Without adequate levels of estrogen, women may notice that they feel moody, unhealthy, or are unable to maintain healthy female sex characteristics. Estrogen is an essential hormone for maintenance of feminine sex traits, but also plays an important role in physiological functions such as: promoting sex drive (libido.

Phytoestrogens, or plant-based estrogens, are an almost mysterious part of nutrition. Just like it’s hard to tell if soy is bad for you or not, sometimes phytoestrogens are bad for you, and other times they can fight certain cancers!.

Phytoestrogens can bind to hormone receptor sites before the xenoestrogen, blocking its harmful activity. In one test, Royal Jelly inhibited the BPA-induced growth of breast cancer cells (bisphenol A, a xenoestrogen from plastic).

However, not all phytoestrogens are direct plant hormones that bind to receptor sites in the body.Phytoestrogen supplements health benefit and side effects, influence on cancer and heart disease March 12 by Ray Sahelian, M.D.
