Prevention of Bone Loss
Although protein intake is most often associated with increases and retention of muscle mass, research suggests that soy protein may benefit bone health. Soy protein isolate improves bone mineral density and bone mineral content.
Reduction of Breast Cancer Risk
Although many factors contribute to cancer risk, nutrition may have a significant effect. Increase in the intake of soy protein throughout adolescence and adulthood may promote reduction in breast cancer risk. Because soy protein isolate is lower in carbohydrates and fat, than other sources of soy protein, it contains more protein per serving. Thus, regular consumption of soy protein isolate may help reduce the risk of breast cancer.
Prevention of Fat Gain
Research indicates that soy protein may also promote positive changes in body composition, even when compared to other protein sources. Daily supplementation of soy protein is effective in preventing abdominal fat gain. The researchers note that despite the fact that equal quantities of calories of the two protein sources were used, the soy protein s superior at reducing total body fat and abdominal fat.
Improvement in Muscle Gain
Although whey protein is the most common protein supplement for muscle building, research suggests that soy protein may contribute to increased muscle mass. A study published in the February 2007 issue of the Journal of Nutrition found that consuming soy protein and carbohydrates following exercise sessions improved muscle gains compared to carbohydrates alone.
