Are soy foods good for your heart?

Soy is a heart helper. Soy even scored a coveted health claim approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1999. Just 25 grams of soy protein per day is recognized as beneficial to heart health. Plus, with no cholesterol and no saturated fat, soy is a no-brainer when it comes to protecting your ticker. Soy also contains Isoflavones which are recognized for their heart-health and cholesterol lowering benefits.

Can soy foods prevent osteoporosis?

Researchers studying the traditional diets of Japan and China first noticed the soy-bone health connection. Despite eating relatively little calcium, people in these traditionally “soy-eating” countries have very healthy bones. In fact, they rarely suffer from osteoporosis – excessive thinning of the bones that affects many women, and some men, in the US. Soy is the best source of plant nutrients called isoflavones. Along with protein and other vitamins and minerals, isoflavones seem to prevent bone loss as we age.

Are soy foods ok to eat if I am diabetic?

Soy is a naturally healthy choice for people with diabetes. Soy offers complete protein, but without the saturated fat and cholesterol that many people with diabetes want to avoid. The carbohydrates in soy are complex, meaning they break down slowly in the body, limiting their impact on blood sugar.

And many soy foods provide selenium, calcium, magnesium, and potassium, minerals the body needs to properly regulate blood sugar and insulin.

Are soy foods good for men too?

Soy is well recognized as an important part of a prostate-friendly diet. Dozens of studies point to soy as protective against prostate cancer.

Don’t forget the ticker. Heart health is important to men and women equally. Soy is high in protein, contains no saturated fat or cholesterol, and provides heart healthy nutrients such as calcium, potassium, and isoflavones. Isoflavones are recognized for their heart-health and cholesterol lowering benefits.

Can children enjoy soy foods?

Soy can be a great addition to your children’s diet. Tofu can be worked into most recipes that your kids love, from macaroni and cheese to lasagna, fruit smoothies, pudding, baked goods and more. Just recently the US Food and Drug Administration accepted tofu into their WIC program (Women-Infants-Children) as a protein rich alternative to other foods.
