In the study of "Regulation of lipid metabolism by soy protein and its implication in diseases mediated by lipid disorders. by Torres N, Torre-Villalvazo I, Tovar AR., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, researchers found that the reduction of serum cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations by soy
protein intake produces beneficial effects in the kidney preventing the
inflammatory response, increasing the renal flow by releasing
endothelial nitric oxide (NO) synthase from the caveolae, facilitating
the synthesis of NO. Thus, soy protein consumption may reduce the clinical and biochemical abnormalities in diseases mediated by lipid disorders.
