Appearance:Yellow Powder Melting point:297-298 °C Description About Genistein HPLC:
Genistein is soluble in common organic solvents but almost insoluble in water. When being dissolved in dilute alkali, it will become yellow color.
Genistein has anti-tumor, anti-fungal, blood lipid-lowering and can fight against estrogen activity.Genistein can be used for female beauty care and prevention of blood diseases and cancer.
Genistein may inhibit cancer cell growth by blocking enzymes required for cell growth. Genistein may decrease cardiovascular risk in postmenopausal women by interacting with the nuclear estrogen receptors to alter the transcription of cell specific genes. In randomized clinical trials, genistein was seen to increase the ratio of nitric oxide to endothelin and improved flow-mediated endothelium dependent vasodilation in healthy postmenopausal women. In addition, genistein may have beneficial effects on glucose metabolism by inhibiting islet tyrosine kinase activity as well as insulin release dependent on glucose and sulfonylurea.
