Recent years, the benefit of soybean has been widely spread among people who care about health. Many researches have proven that various nutrients within soybean have the ability to promote heart health and healthy bones, preventing cancer and alleviating menopausal symptoms, which make the consumption of soybean a must for a healthy lifestyle.

To reduce risk of heart disease

Research showed that a diet with significant soy protein reduces Total Cholesterol, LDL Cholesterol and Triglycerides. As reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, a 12% drop in cholesterol was observed when 20-25gm of soy protein and fiber were included in the diet. Soy beans contain soluble fiber, which is known to interfere with the absorption and metabolism of cholesterol.

To maintain bone strength

Isoflavones contained within soy beans may inhibit the breakdown of bones. A study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine in September 2005 found that intake of soy food was associated with a significantly lower risk of fracture, particularly among early post menopausal women.

Relieve menopausal symptoms

Studies showed that soy helps women to alleviate menopausal symptoms and it is especially effective in preventing than alleviating hot flashes. Despite these findings, the North American Menopausal Society in 2000 recommended that 40-80mg of isoflavones daily may help to relieve menopausal symptoms.
