The improvement of the quality could be reached with adequate food supplements, named phytoestrogens, in particular Soy Isoflavones (SI), which are natural substances with estrogen-like and estrogen-antagonistic activity, which are active in the control of menopausal vasomotor symptoms. Besides, combined with magnolia extract it could improve the psychological symptomatology also improving the quality of life.
