Revival Products Emphasizes Possible Use of Shakes for Menopause and for Losing Weight
Revival Products Inc., based in Kernersville, NC, wants to emphasize the possible use of soy protein shakes for menopause symptoms, such as night sweats and hot flashes. A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study conducted in Brazil in 2010 involving 40 to 60 Brazilian women who have become postmenopausal indicated much more improvements in hot flashes for the postmenopausal women in the soy shake group compared to the placebo group. The shakes used in the study contained 24 grams of protein and 90 milligrams of isoflavones. This study provided additional confirmation of the potential benefits of dietary soy for the relief of common and mild discomforts arising from the natural progression of menopause.
Suzanne Tabor, President of Revival Products Inc., says, “While soy is not a replacement for prescription medication or HRT, over twenty clinical trials show that soy can help you have a more enjoyable and healthier mid-life by lessening hot flashes and other mild discomforts of menopause. Soy consumption has been shown to significantly improve a woman’s comfort and health during perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause. A medical review in American Family Physician found that soy can significantly improve the discomforts of menopause.”
It should also be noted that because soy may be able to decrease night sweats and hot flashes, and may decrease the risk of heart disease when consumed in conjunction with a healthy diet, many physicians and health care providers now suggest that women in mid-life take soy as part of their nutrition strategy.
Menopause happens because the declining levels of estrogen cause changes in women’s periods. This is not a disease but simply a natural part of aging. Periods become less frequent and then eventually stops altogether during menopause because ovulation slows down until it eventually ceases. This process usually starts around the age of 40 for many women. Reduced estrogen levels may also result in poor uterine and vaginal health.
The transition period where estrogen production starts to decline is known as perimenopause and usually lasts for 8 to 10 years before menopause. However, it is during the final one to two years of perimenopause that the drop in estrogen production is so drastic that many women start to experience menopausal discomforts, such as hot flashes, irregular menstrual periods, lack of energy, and mood swings.
During the menopause period, there is a total cessation of the menstrual periods as the ovaries completely stop releasing eggs. It is also during this period that the menopausal discomforts are at their worst. And after one full year without a menstrual period, menopause is considered to be complete and women enter the postmenopausal stage. During postmenopause, the menopausal discomforts become less frequent and less severe. However, it is during this stage that women are at an increased risk for a number of health conditions, such as heart disease and osteoporosis.
Revival soy shakes are a concentrated soy blend and are formulated in such a way as to maximize results. Studies show that consuming the appropriate amount of soy is required to get the full health benefits. Revival utilizes a process to get the highest concentration of isoflavones found in the heart of the soybean, which is the hypocotyl. Because of this high concentration of isoflavones in the Revival soy shakes, less soy intake is possible, with up to 90 percent less fat and without the soy taste.
It is also possible to use the Revival soy shakes for losing weight. Studies have shown that when combined with exercise and proper diet, the soy shakes may help people lose weight by decreasing hunger cravings and preventing an increase in blood sugar levels.
A large number of research studies support the possibility that soy protein consumption may help people lose weight. This is because soy protein can help people feel fuller longer. This may help in decreasing the urge to snack in between meals and late at night. Soy protein is also a complete protein and it has a low-glycemic index.
