THE WONDERS OF SOY BEAN FOR WOMEN!

The humble soybean boasts some extraordinary benefits. This nutritional powerhouse has stayed under wraps for too long. Apart from being the only vegetable protein with all amino acids essential for our health and well-being, the humble soybean has many other virtues…including an excellent foundation for fast, safe weight loss program.

According to Dr David Heber in “The LA Shape Diet”, women who are on a weight loss program need about 100 grammes of protein per day to fight against hunger and to build their best personal lean muscle shape whilst still losing weight. Without the appropriate level of protein in a low-calorie diet, people and women, in particular, risk losing 1 pound of muscle for every 4 pounds of weight lost! This potential muscle loss can be very dangerous as it can cause a weakening of the heart and other vital organs.

Dr Heber recommends soymilk as a safe and healthy way to achieve fast and permanent weight loss. Apart from some absolutely wonderful health advantages, soy is a safe protein source – without the unwanted cholesterol and saturated fats that accompany animal protein sources. Soy will support and does not sabotage a low-calorie weight loss program.

Read on to discover some other wonderful health benefits of this incredible this food source.

 

1. Soy contains health-enhancing isoflavones. Isoflavones are compounds found only in plants which have strong antioxidant properties. These compounds repair, and help prevent damage to cells caused by pollution, sunlight, and normal body processes. Free radicals can easily cause harm to the immune system, whose cells divide often. They may also be responsible for some of the changes of ageing.

2. Reduce risk of heart disease. Soy’s protein and isoflavones lower LDL cholesterol and decrease blood clotting, which reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke. In one study, people who drank a “milkshake” containing 25g of soy protein for nine weeks experienced, on average, a 5% reduction in LDL cholesterol. And people with the highest LDL levels experienced an 11% drop. (For each 10% to 15% drop in the LDL level, the risk of a heart attack decreases 20% to 25%).

3. Protection against cancer. Soy’s soluble fibre protects the body from many digestive related cancers, such as colon and rectal cancer. While its isoflavones may protect the body from many hormone-related cancers, like breast, endometrial (uterine) and prostate cancer. Isoflavones act against cancer cells in a way similar to many common cancer-treating drugs.

4. Counter the effects of endometriosis. The isoflavones in soy products may help to offset the action of the body’s natural oestrogen, which is often responsible for instigating the monthly pain, heavy bleeding and other symptoms of endometriosis.

5. Guard against osteoporosis. Soy’s protein enhances the body’s ability to retain and better absorb calcium in the bones, while its isoflavones slow bone loss and inhibit bone breakdown, which helps prevent osteoporosis. There is evidence to suggest that isoflavones may also assist in creating new bone.

6. Control symptoms of menopause and perimenopause. Soy’s isoflavones help the body regulate oestrogen when this hormone is declining or fluctuating, which helps alleviate many menopausal and PMS symptoms. Research has shown that soy isoflavones can reduce menopausal hot flushes in women.

7. Help control diabetic conditions and kidney disease. Soy’s protein and soluble fibre help regulate glucose levels and kidney filtration, which helps control diabetic conditions and kidney disease.

What an incredible little bean! With such profound health benefits, how can you overlook this wonderful food source? If you haven’t yet noticed, gone are the days when the only way soy products came were in strange substitutes. You can now access a wide range of soy products such as soybean milk which is actually my favourite, very delicious and healthy too and also use soy in a variety of ways to suit any taste palate.

    Such a great post. I've recently been trying to lose some weight. Right now, my boyfriend & I drink a variation of lactose-free milk, almond, coconut, & soy, but it seems like soy seems to be the appropriate option for both our weight loss goals and his lactose intolerance. :]

    Yet another great and resourceful article, beauty! When I was pre-med and was writing a research paper on breast cancer awareness, there were some findings that stated that soy increased breast cancer. However, there were some inconclusive studies and to be quite honest,most of my professors and mentors weren't much on board with the holistic approach and vegan lifestyle. Though I'm not vegan, I do tend to lean more towards a plant based diet, which includes soy. We don't eat much meat in my home, often using soy alternatives, so reading some of the benefits you've shared here were new to me and comforting at that because I love the fact that I feel that I'm not loosing or missing out on some of the great food we enjoy, just substituted with tempeh or tofu! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having the best week so far!
