BONISTEIN® — DSM’s Pure Genistein

(November 6, 2007, Las Vegas, NV) The debilitating symptoms of menopause, which is caused by a drop in estrogen levels, are a major health concern for women in the U.S. between the ages of 45 and 60 and for millions of women who continue to suffer from these symptoms in their post-menopausal years.

In a major clinical trial involving 389 participants, genistein, a key isoflavone found in soy, was shown to relieve these symptoms in menopausal women. The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, whose findings were published in a 2007 issue (Volume 14, No. 4) of Menopause: The Journal of the North American Menopause Society, showed a significant reduction in the number of menopausal symptoms among women taking genistein over a 12-month period.

DSM Nutritional Products has utilized a patented process to create BONISTEIN®, a pure, non-soy genistein that, according to scientific studies, supports natural processes that alleviate menopausal symptoms.

Ideal for many types of supplement formulations, BONISTEIN® is a natural new way for dietary supplement manufacturers to meet women’s unmet need for products that relieve menopausal symptoms. BONISTEIN® is non-GMO and completely allergen-free and provides bone health benefits beyond those offered by calcium, giving consumers an important added reason to take BONISTEIN®.
