The Power of Soy
Soy-based products are on the rise for very healthy reasons. Learn how to get your recommended daily dose of this super bean.
It’s no secret: the humble soybean boasts some extraordinary health benefits. Many health and dietary professionals recommend an average daily intake of 25 grams of soy protein with soy isoflavones-in addition to a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet-to help reduce the risk of heart disease; they conclude that foods containing soy protein included in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol might reduce the risk of cardiac-heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol levels.
One way soy seems to promote heart health is its high content of isoflavones:
- Soy protein and soy isoflavones have been shown to promote healthy cholesterol that is already within normal range.
- Soy isoflavones help the body regulate estrogen levels, which might help alleviate many menopause and PMS symptoms.
- Soy protein enhances the body’s ability to retain and better absorb calcium into the bones. Soy isoflavones help by slowing bone loss and inhibiting bone breakdown.
