Want to know the health conditioning principle of soybean dietary fiber?
1. Regulate blood lipids
Soybean dietary fiber has the ability to bind and exchange cations, and can exchange ca2+, pa2+, etc. During the ion exchange, the instantaneous concentration of cations is changed to play a dilution role, so it affects the pH value, osmotic pressure and redox points of the digestive tract, forming an ideal buffer environment.
2. Reduce cholesterol
Soybean dietary fiber can exchange with NA+ in the intestines, and promote the elimination of a large amount of K+ and NA+ in urine and feces, thereby reducing the NA+/K+ value in the blood, and directly lowering blood pressure. Thus preventing high blood pressure, heart disease and arteriosclerosis. The excretion of cholesterol and cholic acid has a very close relationship with dietary fiber, and the water-soluble dietary fiber in soybean fiber can significantly reduce the blood cholesterol concentration.
3. Improve blood sugar
Soybean dietary fiber can prevent and treat diabetes, and has the function of regulating blood sugar. The mechanism of action is that soybean dietary fiber can form a network structure in the intestine, increase the viscosity of intestinal juice, prevent food from fully contacting with digestive juice, hinder the diffusion of glucose, and make glucose Absorption slows down, thereby slowing down the absorption of glucose and lowering blood sugar levels. Improve glucose tolerance and reduce the dosage of blood sugar drugs to prevent and treat diabetes. It can inhibit and regulate the rise of insulin and blood sugar in patients with impaired glucose tolerance. It can promote the gastrointestinal absorption of water by the human body, delay the absorption of glucose, and at the same time make people feel full, which is beneficial to diabetic and obese patients, and can be used as food for diabetics and weight loss food.
4. Improve function of large intestine and prevent colon cancer
Soy dietary fiber can affect the function of the large intestine, and its effects include shortening the passage time of food in the large intestine, increasing the amount and frequency of stool, diluting the contents of the large intestine, and providing fermentable substrates for the flora normally present in the large intestine. Prevention of colon cancer Dietary fiber can promote intestinal peristalsis, reduce the contact time of harmful substances and intestines, and can effectively prevent and treat colon cancer.
5. Reduce the effect of harmful substances
Soybean dietary fiber has the effect of adsorbing heterocyclic amine compounds and reducing their biological activity. Heterocyclic amines are a class of aminoimidazole nitrogen heterocyclic aromatic stem compounds that are mutagenic and carcinogenic, and are isolated from pyrolyzed products of proteins, peptides, and amino acids when cooking and processing protein foods. Therefore, increasing the intake of soybean dietary fiber has a positive effect on preventing the possible harm of heterocyclic amines.
