Postmenopausal women in the world reached 476 million in 1990 and are expected to grow to 1.200 million by 2030. If referring to an average life expectancy of 70-80 years, while menopausal age is relatively stable in the 50-51 years, women will spend more than a third of their life in a postmenopausal period and are likely to develop chronic illnesses for the rest of their lives. In postmenopausal women, estrogen deficiency is known to cause various health problems, such as osteoporosis, neurodegenerative diseases, stroke, heart disease, and venous thromboembolism. As an alternative medical solution, the author offers the use of phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens are a class of compounds from plant that can substitute the estrogen function in the body. In contrast to other modern medicine, the author’s research proves that phytoestrogens have relatively no side effects, so it it becomes the potential alternative medical treatment for postmenopausal women. On the other hand, the results of tentative research authors indicate that phytoestrogens can also be exploited by elderly men.
