Revival Soy Reduces Menopausal Symptoms

KERNERSVILLE, N.C.—A newly published study from researchers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine showed Revival Soy can reduce hot flashes and night sweats, while improving quality of life in menopausal women (J Endocrinol Invest. 2009;32(2):150-5).

The objective the study was to examine the effects of Revival Soy on the quality of life of early postmenopausal women (average age=56 years). This was a double blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study of 93 postmenopausal women. The study volunteers drank either one Revival Soy protein shake (20 g of soy protein with approximately 160 mg of total soy isoflavones) or one placebo shake (20 g of milk protein with no soy isoflavones) per day for 12 weeks. The postmenopausal study volunteers were asked to complete the Menopause-Specific Quality of Life (MENQOL) questionnaire to determine the effect of consuming their protein shake on their menopausal quality of life. This questionnaire addressed four specific areas of postmenopausal quality of life: vasomotor (hot flashes and night sweats), psychosocial (mood), physical (stamina, sleep, aches, etc), and sexual (intimacy).

The results showed on average the women consuming the Revival Soy shake daily for 12 weeks saw an improvement (approximately 40 percent on average) in all four postmenopausal quality of life areas, including a reduction in hot flashes and night sweats. In contrast, the study volunteers in the placebo group did not obtain these benefits. The study investigators concluded that consuming Revival Soy was associated with an improved quality of life in early postmenopausal women.
