Health and Functionality of Soy:5).Soy is also being studied for possible effectiveness in numerous other conditions.:
The estrogen-like effect of soy may limit the development of benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), which is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. An enlarged prostate may cause men to experience a weak or interrupted urine stream, dribbling after urinating, or the urge to urinate even after voiding. For most men, BPH is a normal part of aging.
Taking soy may increase bone density, thereby treating osteoporosis in older men or women. It may have an indirect effect by reducing the levels of certain hormones, as well as a direct effect in preventing breakdown of bone.
In a study of women with high cholesterol and also diabetes, soy appeared to decrease resistance to insulin, regulate glucagon (the hormone that releases sugar supplies from the liver), and increase stability of blood sugar levels. Animal studies have shown similar results.
In studies involving Alzheimer?s disease patients, participants who took soy supplements showed improvement in their ability to learn and remember. Although these results are preliminary, it is believed that chemicals in soy may boost the production of an enzyme that appears to be involved in maintaining memory. Soy may also enhance the growth of nerves and delay the deterioration of proteins in the brain. None of these possible effects have been confirmed by further studies.
Soy is also being studied to treat obesity. Obviously, soy-based food products may be used to replace higher-calorie animal foods; but soy may also have other effects. Preliminary studies in laboratory animals have shown that eating soy products may reduce genetic tendencies to gain weight. The results of one small human study showed that weight loss associated with soy intake may be greater than expected from merely calculating the number of calories consumed.
