Soy milk with a thick consistency and a delicious flavor is rich in calcium, vitamin D and has numerous health benefits. A cup of soy milk contains 25-31% calcium, vitamin D 11-31%, 89-125 calories, 5 grams fat (0.4 grams saturated fat) 6-10 grams of protein, 1-5 grams sugar.

The most important property of soy milk is its ability to improve your blood lipid profile. In contrast to milk of animal origin, rich in cholesterol and saturated fats, soy milk fats are mostly unsaturated cholesterol-free. Thus, drinking soy milk is ideal for people with high cholesterol, and a family history of cardiovascular disease. Let us learn about a few more health benefits of drinking soy milk.

Soy Milk Strengthens Your Blood Vessels

Fatty acids omega 3 and 6 and phyto antioxidants found in soy protect blood vessels from bleeding and tissue damage. These aforesaid mentioned compounds are attached to blood vessels and prevent cholesterol deposits, thus free radical attack.

 Soy Milk Ingredient In Miracle Diets

Soy milk gives your body a balanced nutritional intake of protein, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. Unlike cow’s milk, soy oils contain no cholesterol or saturated fat, which helps enormously in the diet. In addition, soy milk is full of fiber, nutrients that suppress appetite quickly gives you a feeling of fullness and improves intestinal transit.

Soy Milk Protein Metabolism

Soy milk contains protein that helps muscle recovery. Because they have a slow digestion, soya milk proteins bind the metabolism to burn more calories from fat, so fat stores get smaller by the day.

Soy milk fat uptake bad blocks

Consumption of soy milk before a meal provides the body active compounds called saponins. In contact with water in the stomach, they form a “foam” bad fats that block the uptake but also reduces appetite.

Soy Milk Has A Low Caloric Intake

One cup of soy milk provides your body about 50 calories, while a cup of cow’s milk have double the amount of calories. Therefore, when taken regularly, in reasonable portions, soy milk can help you lose weight.

Prepare Your Soymilk Only

I hardly not recommend buying soy milk. Commercially various kinds of soy milk are available, but they may contain additives to improve the taste. Therefore, it is that you prepare your own soy milk, which can subsequently give you the flavor by adding ingredients such as honey or fruit.

A liter of soy milk is made from 250 grams of soy beans soaked overnight in 750 ml water. Grind the soaked beans with 1-liter water in a blender. Sieve the mixture through a cheesecloth. You will have soy milk by now. Heat the milk until boiled, add fruits or berries or chocolate, whatever you like. Another simmer for 20 minutes and you are done. Store it in the refrigerator and serve the soy milk cold.
