A substance found in numerous foods, which acts as an antioxidant, helping to diminish and repair damage to cells and tissues. It is believed that isoflavones may help to lower the levels of "bad" cholesterol (LDL) in the body and may also help to lower triglycerides.

The intake of oxygen through normal breathing causes a chemical reaction in the cells of the human body known as oxidation, which is simply a byproduct of normal metabolism. The result of oxidation is the formation of molecules known as free radicals, which can damage cells and tissues in the body, leading to certain cancers, heart diseases, and other illnesses. Antioxidants are believed to slow down the formation of free radicals.

Among the many foods that are good sources of isoflavone are dried beans, miso, soybeans, soy cheese, soy milk, and tofu. In other words, nearly all soy products are good sources of isoflavones.
