The soya bean is a boon for vegetarians as it is a good substitute for animal protein. The protein in soya has all the essential amino acids. The isoflavones in soya lower LDL cholesterol which is commonly categorised as 'bad' cholesterol and reduces early menopausal symptoms. Another source of good health from soya is soya milk, which is an excellent source of high quality protein rich in vitamins and isoflavones. For that lactose intolerant, soya is free of lactose (milk sugar). Soya is beneficial for those with high blood pressure, constipation and those with heat symptoms.
