SoyLife is a unique isoflavone ingredient manufactured exclusively from soy germ. Soy germ, rather than either the whole soybean or the fermented by-products of extraction, contains the highest natural level of isoflavones.
In contrast to a whole soybean extract, a germ extract is rich in the isoflavone daidzein, considered one of the most active constituents in soy, which can be metabolized to equol. Equol is important as it has a strong binding affinity for the estrogen receptor.
The body of scientific evidence for SoyLife is significant and provides insights into many health benefits, enabling market success of our customers. SoyLife opens up an array of new opportunities for inclusion in different segments such as dietary supplements and functional foods.
Soy isoflavones are a class of phytoestrogens, which are clinically studied to support healthy endocrine function and hormone levels, manage menopausal symptoms and support post-menopausal, bone,
metabolic and skin health. SoyLife is one of the most researched sources of soy germ isoflavones available with over 35 scientific studies to support it use and safety.
