Metabolic Activity:

Soybeans are an extremely important source of protein. When you have enough proteins in your body, then your metabolic functioning and overall system will get a major boost.

Healthy Weight Gain:

Soybeans actually work in both ways, actually. First of all, soybeans and soy-based products have been associated with appetite suppression, which can help people eliminate overeating, which can lead to obesity and all of the related risks. However, soybeans also provide a decent amount of fiber and protein, which can help lead to weight gain, if soybeans are eaten in large quantities.

Bone Health:

There is a very high vitamin and mineral content in soybeans, and the impressive levels of calcium, magnesium, copper, selenium, and zinc are very important for a variety of processes in the body. Perhaps most important is their role in bone health. All of these elements are essential for promoting osteotrophic activity, which allows for new bones to grow and also speeds up the healing process of bones. Eating soybeans can be a long-term solution for problems like osteoporosis, which commonly occurs as we age.

Blood Health:

Copper and iron are found in abundance in soybeans, and both of these are essential for the formation of red blood cells. With an appropriate amount of red blood cells in the body, extremities of the body and essential organ systems can get the blood flow and oxygen that they need to function efficiently. This maximized metabolic activity and increases energy levels, while also avoiding dangerous conditions like anemia.

Guys find soybean very useful as it has loads of protein and abundance of minerals. But,

Soy proven is also very useful for girls too


Soybeans are a very good source of isoflavones, which are essential components of the female reproductive system. During menopause, estrogen levels drop significantly. Isoflavones are able to bind to estrogen receptor cells, so the body doesn’t feel as though it is going through such a dramatic decrease. This can ease many of the symptoms of menopause, such as mood swings, hot flashes, and hunger pains.

Breast Development:

Soy contains isoflavones, phytoestrogens that mimic the female hormone estrogen and thus can exert a weak estrogenic activity in our body. It is known that estrogen stimulates the growth of breast and soy isoflavones can exert the same effect but the results often varies. Studies is Japan and Taiwan has shows +ve results.

Helps prevent Anemia:

The bean contains a large amount of copper and iron which promotes blood health.

Well...that's all I got, give it a shot.

You'll love this bean.

  • actually no. since we're on the subject of soy, you should know that this little bad boy not only causes cancer, breast cancer, blood clots and other nasty little disasters. It is also one of the leading causes in the destruction of a woman's reproductive system, and causes a nasty little illness called endometriosis. It does this by tripling a woman's estrogen production, which causes estrogen dominance. Basically, if you're a woman, it causes you to bleed to death over time. I know from experience. I have this illness and other people I know have this illness, and it is becoming more frequent in the u. s because of all the soy that's in products. So no, it's really not good for anyone. Just so you know.

    • It is true that soy has carcinogenics but soy is consumed worldwide in many forms like raw beans, miso, soy sauce, tofu, especially in Japan , by they live healthy and long.

      I did my homework before writing my take.
      The American institute of cancer research has some good info in this concern

      Open Areas of Investigation: Human Studies

      In general, Americans do not eat large amounts of soy, which makes it challenging for US observational studies to compare how highest versus lowest intake links to cancer risk. The majority of population studies involving soy are conducted in Asia, where soy is a dietary staple. Even so, across populations, studies now point to soy possibly protecting against some cancers and overall, presenting no increased risk.

      Population studies link soy consumption with lower breast cancer risk in Asia, where women consume moderate amounts of soy throughout their life. A

    • The myTake Owner is right. The only studies I could find that show positive correlations between soy and cancer were actually funded by companies in the dairy industry, which spiked my interest. It turns out, as more and more information is coming out about how terrible cow's milk is for human health, more people are switching to plant-based milks. This resulted in the dairy industry losing billions of dollars in profits in the last few years, so these companies are freaking out a bit. In response to the dip in sales for milk, dairy companies have begun advertising campaigns in conjunction with paying researchers to manipulate studies in favour of the dairy industry. Soy is amazingly healthy, don't let the dairy industry fool you.

    • @Kiwedin it is not about the dairy industry. Even doctors have said that soy is why I have endometriosis in the first place. Since I have stopped eating soy, and started taking progesterone I have not had as much blood loss. So while it may be good for you, it is not good for everyone.
