Soybeans are a very controversial food. Many false statements have been circulated regarding the benefits and/or precautions of soybeans. First off, low-moderate intake of phytoestrogen from soybeans does not significantly effect male hormone production for most individuals like many believe. Soybeans are in fact an amazing powerfood loaded with phytonutrients, protein, complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and dietary fiber. They have been used around the world to help prevent disease, improve digestive health, and lower cholesterol. It has been shown that consuming fermented soybeans can be much more beneficial than regular soybeans due to the probiotic effect on the digestive tract.
