    I started taking soy isoflavones, 40 mg for hot flashes and insomnia due to menopause. I have always been a good sleeper and need my sleep to feel well. Going into menopause I became very distressed by insomnia coupled with hot flashes. It got to the point it was making me feel physically ill, and was zapping me of all my energy. After about 1 week taking soy I noticed a big decline in the troubl ... Show Full Comment

    The soy I took (Spring Valley brand from Wal-Mart) was effective in reducing the intensity and number hot flashes I got during the day. However, I have been suffering with extreme irrablity and from the research I've been doing soy does not seem to help with this. So, I'm switching to Maca (I heard this is supposed to help with all perimenopausal/menopausal symptoms).

    Wow, what a difference! Soy Isoflavones were recommended to me by GYN Dr. to help with my peri-menopausal night sweats and hot flashes. Being a person who avoids getting on the 'prescription drug pill wagon' I decided, out of pure desperation, to give it a try. After about five days, the hot flashes and night sweats were gone and have not returned after 6 months of use! Also, I only tak ... Show Full Comment

    Using vitamin supplement with 60mg of soy and I am very surprised and happy that my hot flashes have stopped. Notice a difference after 2 weeks and after a month they are complete gone. Very Happy.

    Comment:
    I've been drinking soy milk daily for years, but when my menopausal hot flashes came on in a torrent for more than a year, I increased my soy intake with tofu and soy granules, I believe it gradually helped my flashes ease up and disappear for about a year, I reduced my soy intake, but they have come back again, so I'm increasing it. The drawback is that the increased estrogen from soy ... Show Full Comment
