Health Benefits of Glycine Max
Soy is an excellent source of dietary protein, including all essential amino acids.
Dietary protein is necessary for muscle development in response to strength training and perhaps for maintaining healthy bones.
Evidence suggests that dietary protein is more satiating than fats and carbohydrates potentially beneficial for weight management.
It is also a source of lecithin or phospholipid. Soy isoflavones and lecithin have been studied scientifically for numerous health conditions. Isoflavones such as genistein are known to have estrogen-like effects in the body. As a result, they are sometimes called phytoestrogens.
Soybeans are good sources of phytochemicals, biologically active plant compounds that, although not essential nutrients, may confer health benefits.
Soy protein can directly lower blood cholesterol levels. Recent analyses indicate that soy protein lowers LDL-cholesterol by three to five percent.
Soy is low in saturated and high in polyunsaturated fat. It is one of the few plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids.
