Studies have found that the consumption of soy protein can raise good cholesterol, inhibit the oxidation of bad cholesterol, remove junk fat on blood vessel walls, and improve blood vessel health.
In 1999, the US FDA (US Food and Drug Administration, an international medical review authority) issued an authoritative health statement: “Eating low-saturated fat and low-cholesterol foods containing 25 grams of soy protein every day can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. .”
Chinese residents’ dietary nutrition guidelines also specifically propose that we should pay attention to the intake of soybeans in our daily diet. People who have cardiovascular disease or have a tendency to develop disease should increase the intake of soy protein in their diet and reduce the intake of animal protein.
