OBJECTIVES Intestinal bacterial metabolize the soy isoflavone daidzein to O-desmethylangolensin (O-DMA) or equol. Some individuals do not excrete O-DMA or equol after soy consumption, suggesting they do not harbor bacteria capable of producing these metabolites. The aim of this study was to evaluate bone mineral density (BMD) in relation to presence of these urinary metabolites. METHODS BMD, determined by whole-body dual X-ray absorptiometry scan, was age-adjusted and evaluated in relation to… CONTINUE READING
