My goodness, after 5000 years of Asians thriving on soy, they’ve been perfectly capable of procreating. And with no character in the written language for “PMS” or ‘hot flashes” or other such hormonal issues, what’s happened with the concerns about soy?
Is it really the SOY? Or is it something that’s happened to the soy?
Here’s a powerful article essentially outlining the differences as well as the safety of Shaklee soy products.
Summary: Here are a couple of excepts from the article above:
- “…those who enjoy soyfoods can feel comfortable eating as much as three or four servings of these foods per day. This amount provides around 25 grams of protein and about 100 milligrams of isoflavones.”
- “…one advantage of consuming soy early in life may be protection against breast cancer. Epidemiologic studies show that consuming approximately one serving of soy per day during childhood and/or adolescence reduces breast cancer risk later in life by as much as 50 percent.
- “…evidence indicates that consuming soyfoods may markedly lower risk for chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.”
- …the evidence clearly shows that soyfoods do not exert feminizing effects (on men).
- “clinicians no longer need to advise against soy consumption for women diagnosed with breast cancer“
Please reference the article for complete context and information.
As one of our top Shaklee scientist says: “There’s 5000 years of history of Asian families who have depended on soy and thrived.”
Shaklee has featured Non-GMO and low-heat-processed soy for decades, beginning with the original research from Dr. Shaklee. He considered it a complete vegetable-based protein source, and these standards and support for this research have been maintained throughout Shaklee’s history.
Of course, in addition to the complete line of Soy Protein products, Shaklee does offer a Plant (non-soy) and Whey protein shakes.
