My understanding is that the phytoestrogen will come in competition with estrogen for its receptors. Phytoestrogens being less potent mesengers, to the receptor, do not create as much celluar response, thus potentially not creating as much fibroblast and collangenase.

This is a brilliant article and really makes sense and relates to me on a personal level. However on investigating s list of phytoestogen rich foods I found that this same list of foods is recommended for menopausal women, who are experiencing low levels of estrogen. The phytoestrogens are being prescribed to increase their estrogen levels, so I am not quite clear on how this can be the case, as this article claims that phytoestrogens will lower estrogen. Can anyone shed some light on this please?
