Phytestrogens are diphenolic compounds, widely found in plants and foods, with structural and biological estrogen-like similarities. Their anti-estrogenic effects are well known and studied due to the possibility to prevent some tumors such as breast and prostate cancer. In menopause they have an estrogenic-like action on lipidic and bone metabolism. Phytestrogens rich foods can positively affect the postmenopausal osteoporotic and cardiovascular pathology.
