The genistein in Lyc-O-Fem is a phytoestrogen derived from Sophora japonica, the Japanese pagoda tree, and is standardized to 98% purity and specially formulated for slow release. The compound has been shown in research studies to support bone health and reduce vasomotor symptoms. Studies back the positive effect of genistein on bone metabolism in post-menopausal women, without the harmful estrogenic activity. However genistein is rapidly metabolized, requiring a twice-daily administration of the supplement. The slow-release technology in Lycored’s preparation provides a continuous exposure, allowing once-a-day supplementation.
