edamame (soybeans)

In the course of study American physicians have found that the use of soy in food causes bad effects on women’s reproductive function, because it contains genistein.

The fact is that genistein – is a kind of plant analogue of the female hormone -estrogen. And getting into a woman’s body, it is able to destroy hormonal balance. This may result in a failure of the menstrual cycle and disturbance of oocyte maturation.

Therefore, scientists recommend young women who are planning to become pregnant, stop eating soy. You can replace it with products containing selenium, as well as meat, seafood and nuts.

It is interesting that doctors recommend eating soy for mature women. It is able to mitigate the unpleasant symptoms of menopause, so any symptoms disappear completely or become virtually invisible.
