Soybean – A superfood that is essential to dieting, beauty and health
Soybeans: The superfood gaining attention
Soybeans are referred to as the "meat of the fields," and are rich in many nutrients, including high-quality protein.
In Japan and throughout Asia, soybeans have been cherished as an indispensable part of the cuisine for thousands of years.
In Japan in particular, they are an essential ingredient in daily meals, going into the creation of soy sauce, miso paste, fermented natto, tofu, and more.
In addition, vegetable protein made from soybeans and "soybean meat" made from soy-based ingredients instead of beef and pork have gained attention.
This is not only an ingredient for vegetarians and vegans, but is also gaining awareness among the general public.
The major benefits soybeans offer for dieting, beauty, and health
1. Soybeans are a "natural supplement" with high nutritional content
Among the various legumes, soybeans have some of the highest protein content, and their combination of amino acids is very similar to animal protein.
In addition, they are rich in calcium, dietary fiber, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, so they are referred to as the "natural supplement."
2. The functions of soybeans are similar to that of estrogen, the female hormone essential for beauty
Isoflavones function in our bodies in a way similar to the female hormone estrogen.
Estrogen is responsible for beauty in the body, making the skin and hair more radiant.
Estrogen is responsible for beauty in the body, making the skin and hair more lustrous.
It also increases the amount of collagen in the skin and helps retain hyaluronic acid, promoting the metabolism of the skin and hair, and keeping the skin resilient and lustrous.
Moreover, it also has strong antioxidant properties that clear aging substances caused by ultraviolet rays and other external stimuli, helping prevent skin problems like age spots and wrinkles and leading to more beautiful skin.
In addition, estrogen also helps inhibit the growth of body hair, and isoflavones, being similar to estrogen, have an equivalent hair suppressing effect.
In this way, isoflavones are truly one of our best assets when it comes to beauty.
3. Also helps prevent osteoporosis, which is common in women
Estrogen plays an important role in suppressing the loss of calcium from bones.
Women in particular tend to lose bone mass rapidly starting around menopause, when estrogen secretion decreases.
This is where isoflavones are believed to be useful in preventing osteoporosis, as they function similar to estrogen.
Moreover, it reduces problems such as hot flashes, sweating, and fatigue that occur during menopause.
4. Also beneficial for your diet
The hormone insulin secreted by the spleen promotes the synthesis of body fat, so it is also known as the "obesity hormone." People who are obese tend to have poor insulin functionality.
This causes the body to produce excess insulin, and is one of the factors preventing them from curbing their obesity.
Isoflavones increase insulin sensitivity, allowing the proper amount of insulin to function as intended, suppressing obesity.
5. Curbs high blood pressures and cholesterol and prevents heart disease
Isoflavones are attracting attention for their ability to suppress increases in blood pressure and blood cholesterol.
Blood pressure and blood cholesterol are major factors in ischemic heart disease such as myocardial infarction.
In the United States, which is suffering from a growing obesity and heart disease epidemic, in 1999, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a nutrition labeling system for foods containing soy protein as a countermeasure against heart disease.
This designation was given because soy protein meets the criteria for a diet low in saturated fatty acids and cholesterol, with consumption of 25 grams (6.25 grams per meal) being found to reduce the risk of heart disease.
Soybeans are a very powerful asset for beauty and health.
They are effective for people of all ages, from young people to the elderly, and cater to a wide range of issues, so be sure to incorporate them into your daily diet.
In terms of general beauty treatment, using cosmetics containing soy-based ingredients is also effective.
