Soy Protein to combat estrogen
Phytoestrogens are the non-********* active compounds in soy which give it its therapeutic properties. In the absence of endogenous estrogen, such as in the menopausal state, phytoestrogens can bind to the estrogen receptors and increase estrogen activity. BUT WHEN ESTROGEN LEVELS ARE HIGH THE PHYTOESTROGENS COMPETE WITH ENDOGENOUS ESTROGENS FOR THE ESTROGEN RECEPTOR SITES AND CAUSE AND OVERALL DECREASE IN ESTROGEN ACTIVITY.
Never saw anyone post anything like this and i happened to come across it today.

Soy may also decrease the absorption of thyroid hormones, but this can be avoided by taking thyroid hormones 2 hours before or after soy consumption.

I have heard of Soy increasing estrogen levels. But what you said makes perfect sence. GREAT POST! I used to try to stay away from soy while on AAS because I didnt want to raise my estrogen levels more than they already were, but with this new info, I might start eating more.
Edamame! GOOD STUFF!
