5 Issues You Have to Know About Soy

1) It does not reduce the t-levels!

We will clear this up first: Soy contains compounds called phytoestrogens which are basically the herbal version of the female sex hormone estrogen. But – and this is important – these phytoestrogens do not work like estrogen in the male body. Roger that? There is ample evidence that soy does not lower testosterone levels or ruin muscle mass.

2) It is full of macronutrients.

One cup of edamame (cooked soybeans) contains 298 calories, 29 grams of protein, 17 grams of carbs and 15 grams of fat. A scoop of soy protein powder contains 120 calories, 25 grams of protein, 1 gram of carbohydrates and 1.5 grams of fat.

3) It helps you to recover.

The addition of soy protein powder to shakes before and after exercise is a great way to use the rich antioxidants of soy to improve your recovery from exercise. Add with whey in the ratio 1: 1.

4) It increases blood circulation and HGH.

It's not only good for antioxidants. Soya boosts the level of nitric oxide, which increases blood circulation and growth hormone levels.

5) It makes a weird mess.

We would never recommend avoiding eggs, but silk tofu is great for scrambled eggs. Do you have any vegetables left? Pour them into a pan, beat three eggs and start cooking before you put half a box of tofu in the pan. Mix it with the eggs and vegetables, add a little salt and you're ready to go.
