Previously, researchers suggested that soy may pose adverse effects on health, and therefore should be limited in the diet. However, recent studies suggest the exact opposite. According to an article published by the National Institutes of Health, soy in the diet can help reduce ones risk of coronary heart disease, diabetes, prostate and breast cancer due to its high isoflavone concentration. Soy in the diet may also favorably affect renal function, alleviate hot flashes and depressive symptoms, and improve skin health.

Soy, especially fortified soy milk, is an excellent source of vitamin B12, calcium and protein and can be added to any smoothie or bowl at BARE.
