In the study of "Regulation of the immune response by soybean isoflavones" by Masilamani M, Wei J, Sampson HA.", , posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, researchers found that Soybeans are rich in immuno-modulatory isoflavones such as genistein, daidzein, and glycitein. These isoflavones
are well-known antioxidants, chemopreventive and anti-inflammatory
agents. Several epidemiological studies suggest that consumption of
traditional soy food containing isoflavones is associated with reduced prevalence of chronic health disorders. Isoflavones
are considered to be phytoestrogens because of their ability to bind to
estrogen receptors. The literature is extensive on the chemistry,
bio-availability, and bio-activity of isoflavones. However, their effects on immune response are yet to be fully understood, but are beginning to be appreciated.
