Source Naturals Genistein is made from isoflavone-rich soybean powder that yields a consistant standardized isoflavone content. This unique chemical-free process requires approximately 400 pounds of soybeans to yield just one pound of finished product. Suitable for vegetarians.
"If you do not care for tofu or soymilk, Source Naturals Genistein Soy Complex is a good alternative. I would also recommend adding Vitacost Herbal Hormone Complex. Source Naturals Progesterone Cream may also be helpful. Maintaining balance between estrogen and progesterone is important."
