Plant or phytoestrogens, typically found in an Asian diet, may help keep your hormones in balance by mimicking the oestrogen hormone.

A high intake of phytoestrogens is thought to explain why hot flushes and other menopausal symptoms rarely occur in populations consuming a predominantly plant-based diet.

You can increase your intake of phytoestrogens by eating more: organic soy milk and soya flour, linseeds, tofu, tempeh and miso, pumpkins seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, celery, rhubarb and green beans.
