Abstract

Objectives: The increasing of blood cholesterol levels is one factor of atherosclerosis risk. Estrogen hormone secretion decreases in postmenopausal women as a result of atrophy of the ovaries so that tends to increase in total cholesterol levels, LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) cholesterol, triglycerides and decreased HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) cholesterol. Soy milk can decrease cholesterol, protein, lecithin and isoflavones which functions to dissolve cholesterol in the blood so that there is no narrowing and blockage of blood vessels, and acts as an antioxidant. The purpose of the study is to determine the effect of soymilk consumption towards reducing levels of total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol in menopausal women. The research uses an experimental method by collecting positive purposive sampling techniques. The results of a study on 14 postmenopausal female respondents in Singaparna compassionate nursing homes were obtained which reduced total cholesterol levels after consuming soy milk by 35.7% and which increased of 64.3%. While those decreased in LDL cholesterol levels by 71.4% and those increased of 28.6%. Based on the results of the Paired T-Test, a significance is obtained 0.476 (P> 0.05) so that it can be concluded that it is not significant to decrease total cholesterol levels, whereas LDL cholesterol significance is obtained 0.022 (P < 0.05) so that it can be concluded that the result is significant to decrease LDL cholesterol levels. Keywords—Total cholesterol; LDL Cholesterol; soy milk; menopause women
