Soy protein is used for multiple reasons. It has been around for a long time and has a proven track record of being a great source of nutritional value. It is a lean, plant protein and also a complete protein, which means it contains all the essential amino acids. This makes soy protein very unique. Also, The Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS), is a method of evaluating protein quality based on amino acids and the body’s ability to digest. Soy protein scores 1-the highest possible score. With Dr. Steve’s Nutri Snax, YOU GET WHAT YOU EAT!
Additionally, during my research, I found the European Society for Medical Oncology Handbook, NUTRITION AND CANCER (a trusted and reliable reference guide for cancer caregivers), recommends soy protein to achieve a healthy diet for cancer patients. As many suffer from a co-morbid disease, these patients must commit to a lifetime of keeping fit. Doing so will give them the best chance to guard against cancer recurrence or contracting a second primary cancer diagnosis. Reportedly, excess body fat is now linked to 13 different types of cancer and, of course, type 2 diabetes. The American Cancer Society reports that in periods prior to and following a diabetes diagnosis, patients are more prone to developing cancers, as well. Recent findings strengthen current dietary studies that support the adoption of a more plant-based diet for lowering the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. There are an estimated 85 million Americans with prediabetes, a precursor to diabetes. Despite proven effectiveness, reportedly, only a small percentage of people have participated in a national lifestyle change program, which is designed to stop prediabetes from progressing to type 2 diabetes. Obviously, plant-based nutrition (especially as it pertains to protein), is an important factor. The Obesity / Diabetes / Cancer Triad is very real.
Similarly, in some of the most recent medical literature, scientists are recommending what is being referred to as the “ideal diet,” which in part, includes doubling the consumption of nuts, fruits, vegetables, and legumes. The most common varieties of legumes are beans, which of course, include soy. Reportedly, millions of premature deaths could be prevented each year if the world followed this recommendation, as unhealthy diets currently cause more death and disease worldwide than unsafe sex, alcohol, drug, and tobacco use combined. Incorporating the consumption of lean, plant protein as part of your everyday diet is a great first step.
Sure, snacks should be enjoyable to eat, but it is the best of both worlds when they offer some nutritional value, such as meeting the criteria as set forth in the aforementioned ideal diet plan, as well as achieving your personal protein RDA, as examples. We should avoid empty calories and make eating count. In addition to being a high-quality protein source, soy also contains isoflavones, which are bioactive compounds that reportedly offer numerous benefits to our bodies. There is extensive information and supporting evidence contained in the scientific literature pertaining to soy isoflavones that are well beyond the scope of this website. After performing years of medical/surgical/nutritional research as it relates to the properties of soy protein, as well as my own personal consumption on a regular basis, I am totally convinced soy is not only just a great source of protein, the most important macronutrient, but as a bonus; it also contains these extraordinary compounds, isoflavones. Soy is a complete plant protein that offers many benefits for our bodies.
