Study: Soy doesn't help with hot flashes

August 9, 2011

Soy supplements are often used to hold off side effects of menopause, like decreased bone density. But a new study published this week in the Archives of Internal Medicine discovered soy products did not help with hot-flashes or age-related bone loss, which can lead to osteoporosis.

Some health experts suggest women should stick to the basic and get enough calcium and Vitamin D in their diets.

They also suggest talking to a doctor about anti-seizure drugs and low dose anti-depressants to help control hot-flashes.
