whether soy and other supplements work for hot flashes due to menopause

Women are asking whether soy and other supplements work for hot flashes due to menopause.

Soy contains "phytoestrogens," or "plant-derived estrogens," that produce a MODEST benefit in some women...probably due to the isoflavone genistein.

The key is that patients must consume at least 20 g/day of soy protein or 15 mg/day of genistein to get an effect.
