Soy Bean Benefits
The argument for soy
Soy Beans, the perfect bean?
Herbalife uses soy protein in many products and the reasoning is. . . First, don't buy our opinions on soy beans. Form your own opinion after you've done your own homework. Remember, every website out there is just an opinion that someone put down into text.
Soy beans have been cultivated around the world for over 5 millenniums. That's 5,000 years. Soy is considered, in many educated circles, to be the only plant based protein that contains all 9 of the essential amino acids in the proper amounts to support cellular production and repair. The amino acids found in soy are also in the right balance and can't be produced by our own bodies.
In Asia, the soybean has been a staple part of their diets for quiet some time. It was introduced into America in the early 19th century where it was used as ballast weight for ships carrying cargo across the oceans. Around 1880, American farmers began growing soy for cattle feed stores. The soy plants thrived in the warm and humid weather of the south eastern American states. George Washington Carver, the inventor of peanut butter, found that soy was a good source of oil, much like peanut oil and proteins. Farmers began using soy as part of their crop rotation to add valuable nitrates back into the soils.
For dieters, people trying to lose weight, soy offers the benefits of satiety. That means you feel fuller. Soy can help promote a feeling of fullness to help curb your hunger pangs.
Another benefit of soy is that it's loaded with potassium, or vitamin K, zinc, vitamin E, phosporous, zinc and iron. Soy also is packed with the full array of 8 distinct B vitamins. B vitamins are 8 water soluable vitamins that interact with our cells and play a crucial role in cellular development. B vitamins are also known as: Thiamine, Folic Acid, Inositol, Cobalamins, Biotin, Pyridoxal, Pantothenic Acid, Riboflavin and Niacin. And you thought acid was bad for you......
Soy isolates, like those found in many of Herbalife's soy based products are created when the soy bean is squeezed of it's oils and dried out. This process creates 3 types of soy products. Soy protein concentrates, Textured soy protein and our favorite Soy isolates.
Soy isolate is the purist and the most refined soy product. It's made, once again, from defatted soy beans with many of the other ingredients removed. This process leaves a very pure form of soy protein.
The American Heart Association has stated that ...it is prudent to recommend including soy protein foods in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.... Their studies indicated that the right amounts of soy would indeed reduce LDL, or bad cholesterol levels in the body.
For weight loss, try our Herbalife Formula 1 Soy Protein Shake as a meal supplement twice a day in place of your meals. Losing weight doesn't have to be a painful experience. Our shakes taste great and have too many health benefits to list here.
Studies have also found that by using a combination of soy and whey proteins, fitness activists could benefit from the different absorption levels of those proteins. Whey protein is more quickly absorbed than soy protein. This allows a more stable flow of amino acids into the cells of our muscles thereby increasing the bodies ability to recover and gain lean muscle mass. We recommend trying our Herbalife Muscle Strength and Recovery Shake if you are into fitness or exercise for the quickest recovery and muscle growth plan.
