Soy: Five major health benefits from eating it

Soybeans and its products have been the daily food of the Asian peoples for centuries. Numerous studies have concluded that its consumption has contributed to the longevity of these peoples as it avoids the occurrence of many diseases.

Soy is an excellent source of omega-6 fatty acids, it is rich in calcium, iron and other valuable minerals and vitamins and has low carbohydrate content.

Despite warnings in recent years about the dangers of eating soybeans, organic, unmodified soybeans and its products, such as milk, tofu, and starvation, have beneficial health effects.

It reduces insulin

Studies have shown that soy protein consumption reduces insulin by 40-50%, as well as a protein associated with the onset of metabolic syndrome and obesity. Scientists say that soy protein consumption has a positive effect on fat metabolism.

Cast cholesterol and triglycerides

Studies have shown that consuming at least 15 grams of soy protein a day (contained in 1-2 servings of soy-derived foods) over a period of 8 weeks reduces LDL "bad" cholesterol by 4.2% to 5.2%. This reduction was estimated to contribute to a 10% lower risk of coronary heart disease. At the same time, reductions in triglycerides, another type of lipid-associated with heart disease, have also been observed.

Protects against osteoporosis

Soy consumption has a protective effect on osteoporosis. In particular, it has been shown that calcium excretion when consuming meat or fish is 150 mg daily, while when consuming an equal amount of soy protein the excretion is 103 mg daily. Unlike protein of animal origin, soy contributes to the retention of calcium in the blood. The body uses calcium from its bones, which are the bones, to cover the sharp decrease in calcium in the blood caused by the consumption of protein of animal origin. Gradually this phenomenon leads to osteoporosis.

Relieves menopause

Studies have shown that administration of 40 grams of soy protein supplement daily improves bone mineral content in some vertebrates while reducing the severity of menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes. Studies have shown that soy seems to be most effective when the symptoms of menopause are mild.

It does good in the digestive tract

Starvation, like yogurt, belongs to good probiotics, which prevent and treat gastrointestinal disorders. Probiotics protect against colon cancer, reduce bowel inflammation (Crohn's disease), improve lactose intolerance, and are essential when taking antibiotics.
