Phyto‐oestrogens are non‐steroidal plant‐derived compounds that possess oestrogenic activity and act as selective oestrogen receptor modulators (SERMs). Among the dietary oestrogens, the isoflavone class enjoy a wide‐spread distribution in most of the members of the Leguminosae family, including such prominent high‐content representatives as soybean. Phyto‐oestrogen research has grown rapidly in recent years owing to epidemiological studies suggesting that diets rich in soy may be associated… Expand
Soy isoflavones as safe functional ingredients.
TLDR
Current data are insufficient to draw definitive conclusions regarding the use of isoflavones as an alternative to estrogen for hormone replacement in postmenopausal women, and large, long-term intervention studies examining adverse effects and disease outcomes are needed. Expand
Potential toxicity of flavonoids and other dietary phenolics: significance for their chemopreventive and anticancer properties.
TLDR
The current knowledge regarding potential dietary flavonoid/phenolic-induced toxicity concerns, including their pro-oxidant activity, mitochondrial toxicity (potential apoptosis-inducing properties), and interactions with drug-metabolizing enzymes are summarized. Expand
Health effects of soy protein and isoflavones in humans.

TLDR
Overall, existing data are inconsistent or inadequate in supporting most of the suggested health benefits of consuming soy protein or ISF. Expand
Dietary soy protein containing isoflavonoids does not adversely affect the reproductive tract of male cynomolgus macaques (Macaca fascicularis).
TLDR
It is found that there is no evidence of an adverse effect of soy isoflavonoids at physiologically relevant doses within the reproductive organs of adult male macaques. Expand
Dietary Soy Protein Containing Isoflavonoids Does Not Adversely Affect the Reproductive Tract of Male Cynomolgus Macaques (Macaca fascicularis)
TLDR
It is found that there is no evidence of an adverse effect of soy isoflavonoids at physiologically relevant doses within the reproductive organs of adult male macaques. Expand
Phytonutrients and children: The other side of the medallion
TLDR
Regular mass administration of foods, or supplements should be done prudently during childhood, as these are potential atherosclerosis progression factors and risk factors for obesity, a major health problem among children. Expand
Isoflavones in urine, saliva, and blood of infants: data from a pilot study on the estrogenic activity of soy formula
TLDR
The results, based on much larger numbers of infants, strongly confirm previous reports, but whether phytoestrogens in soy formula are biologically active in infants is still an open question, and plans further longitudinal studies focusing on physical and developmental findings reflecting the effects of estrogen exposure. Expand
Functional soy products
TLDR
The safety concerns such as estrogenic, anti-estrogenic effects and anti-thyroid actions of soy as well as future trends in research and development of functional soy foods have been discussed. Expand
Transgenerational Effects of Early Exposure to Soy Isoflavones on Reproductive Health and Bone Development in CD-1 Mice
TLDR
Early life exposure to soy isoflavones compromise reproductive function but confer a transgenerational benefit to bone development in CD-1 mice. Expand
Safety of soya-based infant formulas in children
TLDR
Modern SIF are evidence-based safety options to feed children requiring them and the patterns of growth, bone health and metabolic, reproductive, endocrine, immune and neurological functions are similar to those observed in children fed CMF or HM. Expand

Exposure of infants to phyto-oestrogens from soy-based infant formula
TLDR
The daily exposure of infants to isoflavones in soy infant-formulas is 6-11 fold higher on a bodyweight basis than the dose that has hormonal effects in adults consuming soy foods. Expand
Reproductive actions of phytoestrogens.
TLDR
This chapter reviews the reproductive actions of phytoestrogens, comparing mechanisms of action, dose-response relationships, and human exposures, and it is likely that some humans may experience greater exposure to phy toestrogens in infancy than in any other lifestage. Expand
Phytoestrogens in health and disease.
TLDR
Evaluating the effects and hence the potential benefits and risks of phytoestrogens is a complex task; extensive documentation of the specific intracellular effects of the various phy toestrogens in different tissues, the relationships between timing and duration of exposure and disease, and results from prospective randomized studies in humans of their clinical effects are essential.

Soy Isoflavones—Benefits and Risks from Nature’s Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators (SERMs)
  • K. Setchell
  • Medicine
  • Journal of the American College of Nutrition
  • 2001
TLDR
Arguments are made for considering soy isoflavones as natural selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) based upon recent data of their conformational binding to estrogen receptors, and recent knowledge related to their pharmacokinetics and clinical effects is reviewed. Expand
Dietary isoflavones: biological effects and relevance to human health.
TLDR
This review focuses on the more recent studies pertinent to this field and includes, where appropriate, the landmark and historical literature that has led to the exponential increase in interest in phytoestrogens from a clinical nutrition perspective. Expand
Neurobehavioral effects of dietary soy phytoestrogens.
Phytoestrogens, plant-derived nonsteroidal estrogens found in high abundance in most soy food products, have been studied for their potential beneficial effects against hormone-dependent cancers andExpand
In vitro bioassays of non-steroidal phytoestrogens
TLDR
Results indicate that estradiol and the isoflavonoids exert their effects on AlkP by similar interactions with the estrogen receptor, with potencies depending on binding affinities. Expand
Naturally occurring oestrogens in foods--a review.
TLDR
Indications are given of the wide range of common food plants which have been reported to possess oestrogenic (uterotropic) activity, although it is emphasized that in general further work is necessary to substantiate these claims and to confirm the identities of the biologically active principles which have in some cases been proposed.

Determination of urinary lignans and phytoestrogen metabolites, potential antiestrogens and anticarcinogens, in urine of women on various habitual diets.
TLDR
The evidence obtained until now seems to justify the conclusion that these compounds may be among the dietary factors affording protection against hormone-dependent cancers in vegetarians and semivegetarians. Expand
