The Benefits of Fiber and ProteinWritten by pinoyusana on April 30th, 2011
Diets high in soluble and insoluble fiber are generally rich in essential nutrients. Fiber is important for maintaining digestive health. When regularly eaten as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, soluble fiber has been shown to help support healthy cholesterol levels, provided they are healthy to begin with.
Twenty-five grams of soy protein a day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
Soy protein is a complete protein, containing all of the essential amino acids and in a highly digestible form. Whey protein, which is also easily digestible, is an excellent source of amino acids essential for building a healthy body.
