Falling for Soy: Why We Need Soy in Our Diet

Written by Susan Fox, Health Writer

We all know to look for healthy protein to build a strong and healthy body. But, did you know soy is 36-56 percent pure protein? And, that lunasin is a naturally occurring soy peptide that stimulates fat-burning metabolism?

Almased meal shakes are made using high-quality, non-GMO soy. The exclusive fermentation method is achieved from living enzymes in the enzyme-rich raw honey and a host of bioactive peptides, such as lunasin. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The power of soybean protein and soybean oil, each carries a health claim in full recognition of its ability to bring about heart-healthy effects in the body.

Love your heart; love your body.

2018 United Soybean Board Food Industry Insights consumer study shows soybean oil as an excellent source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) omega-3's. It also ranks it as America’s #1 cooking oil. The protein in soy provides 100% of all essential amino acids.

The Cleveland Clinic states that more plant protein in the diet has clear cardiovascular benefits. Consuming soy is a great way to increase your plant protein. Here’s more:

  • Soy is naturally cholesterol-free and low in saturated fat. Animal protein, high in saturated fat, increases your risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Substituting them with soy can help with lowering overall risk for disease.
  • Eating soy-based foods boosts your fiber intake, promoting a healthy gastrointestinal system.
  • Soy foods are a great source of vitamins and minerals. B-vitamins, iron, zinc, and an array of antioxidants round out the nutritional qualities of soy.
  • There are phytoestrogens in soy, but they are not estrogens. Animal products contain estrogens, but soy contains none.
  • Soy foods are a good source of phytochemicals, called isoflavones. Isoflavones have demonstrated a protective benefit against hormone-dependent cancers.

It’s good to know “The Truth About Soy,” but why should a little green soybean really capture my heart? 

Because soy can also help with weight reduction and weight regain. This can be life-changing. 

unique study from Dusseldorf, Germany, showed significant changes in metabolic and inflammatory markers using soy-based meal replacement (Almased). The positive effect appears to be the result of the low glycemic load. It contains no sugar, which can be a source of chronic inflammation.

The control group using the plant-based soy product (Almased) had improved glycemic control, and:

  • Less insulin demand
  • Reduced hunger
  • Reduced weight
  • Increased heart-healthy effectsCompressed body mass index (BMI)

If you've never used Almased before, get ready to be amazed!

Unlike single-action formulas, Almased works at the cellular level to provide support for the systems in your body that impact metabolism.

The Almased formula for nutritional shakes begins with all-natural, whole foods. Whole non-GMO soybeans, skim milk yogurt, and rich honey, full of raw living enzymes. All are fermented by a proprietary method that yields the perfect low-glycemic (4), high protein (27), healthy weight loss miracle.

Ancient cultures have survived and thrived on healthy soy protein, a historic demonstration of time-tested common sense. There has been some recent dis-information about the value of soy, such as that US soy is all genetically modified (GMO) or that soy causes breast cancer. Not so!

The soy in Almased is totally non-GMO, and you can avoid any GMO soy product by looking for “non-GMO” or “organic” on food labels.  Soy does not link to breast cancer but rather, shows a protective benefit.

The isoflavones in soy have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that benefit overall health. Check out "Soy Myths Debunked," for the healthy truth from nutritionist Jamie Luu, RDN, LDN.
