According to a new study first presented at the Experimental Biology 2009 meeting in New Orleans today, a form of pure genistein reduces the number and duration of hot flashes in peri- and postmenopausal women. The study was conducted by KGK Synergize, Inc., London, Ontario and sponsored by DSM Nutritional Products, Inc (Basel, Switzerland).

In the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, half of the enrolled women were given placebo capsules, while the other half were given capsules of a safe, high purity, non-plant derived, non-allergenic, patent-protected, proprietary genistein branded as geniVida by DSM. Study measurements included daily hot flashes (frequency, duration and intensity), individual-specific safety factors and adverse events.
