Sample text

To study the effect of soy protein, soy protein isolate (SPI), which is derived from defatted soybeans and contains a minimum of 90% protein, has been most commonly used. SPI can vary widely in its isoflavone content and thus allows investigators to compare the biological effects of SPIs that contain low versus high levels of isoflavones. SPI contains the glycoside (genistin, daidzin, and glycitin) and the biologically active aglycone (genistein, GEN; daidzein, DAI; and glycitein, GLY) forms of isoflavones.

ADDITIONAL NUTRITIONAL FACTORS IN EPIGENETICS There are naturally occurring HDACIs in foods such as broccoli (sulforaphane) and garlic (allyl mercaptan and allicin). , 2009). , 2009). These HDACIs from food may play an everyday role in preventing adverse epigenetic change. This could extend beyond cancer to slowing or reversing dementia or slowing age-related decline in general. Dietary Effects on Epigenetics with Aging In addition to producing acetyl-CoA it may be important to help direct acetylCoA away from some functions such as the synthesis of fats so that more will be available to acetylate histones.

Considering that isoflavones have estrogenic activity, it is hypothesized that they can induce the greatest biologic effects on bone when endogenous levels of sex steroids are low as occurs in early postnatal life and during aging. This chapter presents the scientific evidence from animal studies in which the effect of SPI and/or isoflavones on bone health have been investigated. Three distinct stages of the lifespan have been studied: early life, early adulthood, and aging. 2. ANIMAL MODELS USED FOR STUDYING EFFECTS OF SOY ON BONE METABOLISM The choice of animal model depends on the scientific question and the stage of the lifespan being investigated.
