Soy protein and its health benefits
A fit-healthy body- is the best fashion statement today. Just because you are not sick doesn’t mean you’re healthy- is a famous saying. To stay healthy, it is very essential to maintain a proper balance between the important nutrients in your body. One of the important component of every cell in our body is Protein. It is an important building block of muscles, bones, skin and blood. Our Body uses Protein to build and repair tissues. The strength of your Hair and Nails can be maintained by adding enough amount of Protein in your diet. Along with Fats and Carbohydrates, Protein is a Macro nutrient which means the body needs relatively large amount of it. Vegetarians and Vegan diets are often found lacking in Protein which further leads to several deficiencies in their body. So, this is where the ‘Soy Protein’ comes into picture. Soy Beans are considered as a rich source of complete Proteins. It serves a complete solution for all those who have low Protein level. Soy Protein is at the center of two of the top trends in Food, Nutrition and Health today. Let us discuss about soy protein and its health benefits.

Here are few reasons why Soy Protein is essential for a healthy diet:
Soy Protein is an Energy Booster-
Soy Proteins contains amino acids which can be found in Tofu and Soy milk. These amino acids can be used effectively by the body and be converted into energy.
Soy Protein is beneficial during Pregnancy-
Soy Protein product such as fortified Soy milk contains a good amount of Vitamin D, which is essential for stronger bones of both mother and child. Soy Protein actually increases bone mineral density and ensures good health of bone tissues for a growing foetus.
Soy Protein acts as a weight-watcher’s friend-
Soy Protein makes you feel tummy-tight, which helps to lower the intake of food and thus is helpful in losing weight.
Since many new born babies are unable to digest breast milk, during such situations Soy milk can be the best option, since Soy Protein is easily digestible source of Protein. It can be consumed from the infant stage for better growth and development in the future.
Cell growth and Regeneration-
