Abstract: Phytoestrogens are natural substances that are found in food of vegetable origin, especially in the family of legumes. There are more than 4000 types of phytoestrogens, classified into four families, but it is the isoflavones that arouse the greatest interest due to the similarity of action to female oestrogens. Isoflavones, given their structural similarity to natural estrogens, have the ability to bind to estrogen receptors ¿ and ¿, presenting greater affinity for the latter, although with a much smaller potential effect, which would have a positive impact on female health. In recent years, there have been many studies that have associated isoflavones with the benefits they bring to women in their climacteric period, both in the peri-menopausal phase and in the postmenopausal stage, decreasing one of its most significant symptoms. waves of heat. Despite the favorable effects reported by these plant estrogens, they do not substitute replacement hormone therapies in a satisfactory manner, although these are increasingly displaced due to their association with the risk of suffering side effects, such as their possible relationship in cáncer of breast. This review seeks to corroborate the contribution of isoflavones in women's health, specifically in climacteric symptoms, in addition to establishing the appropriate dose to achieve said benefits.
