British scientists conducted a study with the help of which they were able to prove: the use of soy will help maintain the youth of the whole organism.
The fact is that soybeans contain genistein, due to which the production of collagen, a protein that gives the skin elasticity and firmness, increases.
In the study, women applied a couple of drops of genistein twice a day to the area around their eyes for a month. As a result, more than 50% of the participants had a decrease in the number of wrinkles, and the skin became more elastic.
Scientists are sure that the harm of soy is too exaggerated. If you include it in the diet in reasonable quantities, while combining a healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition, then you can benefit from soy for the whole body. It has been proven that it helps fight diseases of the cardiovascular system, prevents the development of cancer.
Experts also note that genistein is especially beneficial for women who are going through menopause.
