Soy is not bad for you, bad soy is bad for you
Soy is not bad for you. Bad soy is bad for you.
Soy is perhaps the most ideal yet most misunderstood food.
Why are wholesome soybeans so good for you?
🌱Wholesome soybeans contain a complete chain of ALL 9 essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein.
🌱Wholesome soy contains multiple times MORE PROTEIN than beef, milk, and eggs.
🌱Unlike animal products, soy contains NO cholesterol, NO animal hormones, is high in fiber PLUS thousands of beneficial phytonutrients and antioxidants. Animal products contain no fiber and none of those health boosting phytonutrients and antioxidants.
🌱The estrogens in soy are plant estrogens. In human body, plant estrogens protect our hormone receptors so that other potentially harmful hormones can’t attach.
Soy protein powder and isoflavones supplements are in fact NOT good
To get the benefits of soy, it must be consumed in its WHOLESOME form, i.e. the whole beans.
⚠️ Isolated soy protein and isoflavones supplements are in fact BAD for you. Beware of such supplements that usually come in the form of soy protein powder and soy isoflavone supplements. 🙅🏻♀️
How wholesome soybeans help with Alopecia Areata
Wholesome soybeans also help with Alopecia in various ways:
1. Soy isoflavones genistein stimulates hyaluronic acid (HA), which acts as natural protective layer of moisturizer on the skin and scalp.
2. Soy isoflavones genistein inhibits autoimmunity and inflammation.
3. Soy isoflavones contribute to the increase of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) which is beneficial for hair growth.
4. Soy isoflavones daidzein act as DHT blockers in androgenic alopecia.
5. Whole, non-GMO soybeans contain all the 9 essential amino acids as building blocks of protein but WITHOUT the fat and animal hormones in animal food sources of protein (meat, eggs, dairy etc).
How to incorporate wholesome soybeans into your daily diet
You can prepare soybeans from scratch and incorporate them into your daily diet. Be sure to heat soybeans properly to remove their trypsin inhibitors content. I personally find that preparing soybeans from scratch every single day is a bit too tedious to fit into my schedule.
I have tools. I have chosen products that contain wholesome soybeans that have been properly heated to just the right temperature, and freeze dried into convenient powdered beverage form. They are not processed, because they are simply freeze dried from their wholesome form.
The soy in SOYGREEN and SOYPRO is wholesome, beyond organic and beyond non-GMO. These products go through over 2,000 tests to ensure quality and safety. The soy has been heated to just the right temperature to remove trypsin inhibitors yet protect all the powerful antioxidants and phytonutrients. The beans are then freeze dried into powder beverage. It’s so convenient and is hands down my favourite way to incorporate this good quality protein source every single day.
