Genki Phyto may help with hormonal imbalances by supplying building blocks of hormones as well as phytoestrogens. It also contains small amounts Don Quai and Wild Yam which are used in Chinese Medicine for the health of the hormonal / reproductive system.
Phytoestrogens are thought to mimic the properties of estrogen in the body, although the effect is weaker and of shorter duration. This is why it is suggested to increase intake of foods containing phytoestrogens in an effort to maintain a stable level.
"According to a study by Canadian researchers about the content of nine common phytoestrogens in a Western diet, foods with the highest relative phytoestrogen content were nuts and oilseeds, followed by soy products, cereals and breads, legumes ..
Flax seed and other oilseeds contained the highest total phytoestrogen content, followed by soy bean and tofu. The highest concentrations of Isoflavones are found in soy bean and soy bean products (eg. tofu) followed by legumes, whereas lignans are the primary source of phytoestrogen found in nuts and oilseeds (e.g. flax) and also found in cereals, legumes, fruits and vegetables."
Genki Phyto contains foods with the highest relative phytoestrogen content in an easily assimilable form. Little to no digestion is required so theses nutrients are readily available to the body.
As a fermented food, it also contains friendly bacteria and enzymes as well as other byproducts of fermentation such as organic acids and B vitamins. Friendly bacteria are known to help with digestion and help strengthen the immune system.
