A new study suggests that soy supplements can help postmenopausal women shed off pounds, in addition to various health benefits reported.
Previous studies had reported that the high estrogen content in soy-rich products can help women during and after menopause in various aspects ranging from treating hot flashes to reducing heart attack risk factors like high cholesterol.
According to the study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, women following a diet rich in soy supplements have less abdominal fat in more precise computerized tomography (CT) scans. The efficacy of the diet, however, varies in different races. While adopting such a diet helps white women lose more visceral and abdominal fat, the use of soy supplements is associated with considerable reductions in the overall body fat in black women. Compared to white women, black women are also reported to lose more weight during the same time, the study found. Scientists, however, stressed that postmenopausal women should not start taking soy supplements just for the sake of controlling body composition or body weight.
