Phytoestrogens and dementia: The importance of different soy products

Abstract
Phytoestrogens like estrogens were thought to exert protective effects on the aging brain and should theoretically protect against dementia. However our data showed increased risk of dementia with high tofu consumption in East Asian countries. On the other hand, tempe a fermented soy product, showed protective effects on brain function in the elderly, We will show observational, animal and treatment data suggesting that tempe may have a role in protecting against dementia and improving memory function
