Soya, a nutrition-packed food, is not only low in saturated fat but is also a great source of protein and macronutrients, which are essential for overall well-being. Soya milk is a source of protein, contains dietary fibre and is enriched with calcium. It is free of lactose, cholesterol, gluten, and is vegan-friendly.
Soyfoods have become increasingly popular in non-Asian countries as their versatility allows them to easily be incorporated into various diets and extract their nutritional advantages. However, it must be noted that soy protein is higher in quality than in other legumes, while being a good source of essential fatty acids.
“Soy protein also directly lowers circulating LDL-cholesterol levels and may also modestly lower blood pressure. Replacement of commonly consumed sources of protein in Western diets by soyfoods may also lead to a favourable change in the fatty acid content of the diet,” read a study, Soy and Health Update: Evaluation of the Clinical and Epidemiologic Literature.
Here are some of the health benefits of soya milk:
Soya milk improves your good cholesterol levels and prevents heart diseases. It also improves plasma lipid levels that work together in promoting better heart health.
Eases stress in the skin
Soya rich diet helps to reduce hyperpigmentation in the skin and also has anti-ageing properties.
Soy milk is rich in protein that has a good impact on hair growth. For people who have a frizzy and unmanageable mane, this milk can be beneficial.
People in their late 40s and 50s face a lot of joint issues and pain in muscles. Calcium content in soy milk promotes better bone health by keeping them stronger and their structure intact.
