Soy protein and Congestive heart failure

In the study of "Alternative therapies: Part II. Congestive heart failure and hypercholesterolemia" by Morelli V, Zoorob RJ., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, researchers found that substituting soy protein for high-fat animal protein diets, however, does have a beneficial effect on serum lipid levels. So far, cholestin (a natural product containing several statins) has proved to be a cost-saving lipid-lowering medication, and fenugreek may offer modest improvement as well. Gugulipid is also promising but requires further research.

Soy isoflavonesand cardioprotection to offspring

Posted by Chantel M. Contributed by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health

In the study of "Dietary isoflavones during pregnancy and lactation provide cardioprotection to offspring rats in adulthood" by Souzeau E, Bélanger S, Picard S, Deschepper CF., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, researchers found that the soy-based diet had no such effects when given to rats after 6 wk of age, and its effects were replicated when supplementing the maternal casein-based diet with the isoflavones daidzein and genistein (the most abundant phytoestrogens in soy-based diets). In contrast to rats whose mothers had been fed with a soy-based diet, the hearts of adult rats raised with a casein-based diet only featured dilated eccentric hypertrophy and progressed toward congestive heart failure when further challenged. Thus the presence of isoflavones in the maternal diet provides cardioprotection to the hearts of their offspring during adulthood.

Soy and Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE)

Posted by Chantel M. Contributed by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health

In the study of "Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory peptides: production and implementation of functional food" by De Leo F, Panarese S, Gallerani R, Ceci LR., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, researchers found that
ACE inhibitors of chemical synthesis (captopril, enalapril, ramipril and trandolapril) have been widely used clinically to reduce mortality in patients with heart failure, and in patients with recent myocardial infarction and heart failure or marked left ventricular dysfunction. In addition to preventive and therapeutic drugs, increased attention has been paid to identifying dietary compounds that may contribute to cardiovascular treatment and prevention. ACE inhibitory peptides, derived from a multitude of plant and animal proteins such as milk, soy or fish, represent sources of health-enhancing components.

Soy isoflavones and exercise to improve physical capacity

Posted by Chantel M. Contributed by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health


In the study of "Soy isoflavones and exercise to improve physical capacity in postmenopausal women" by Choquette S, Dion T, Brochu M, Dionne IJ., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, found that exercise training can improve muscle tissue strength, function and quality in sedentary postmenopausal women. Isoflavones, irrespective of exercise, did not produce changes in these variables. From a clinical perspective, these results suggest that overweight women could reduce the risks of mobility impairments, even in the absence of weight loss, by following a sound exercise intervention that includes both resistance and aerobic training at a high intensity.

Soy and chronic diseases

Posted by Chantel M. Contributed by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health


In the study of "Epigenetic changes with dietary soy in cynomolgus monkeys" by
Howard TD, Ho SM, Zhang L, Chen J, Cui W, Slager R, Gray S, Hawkins GA, Medvedovic M, Wagner JD., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, indicated that in the comparison of the methylation profiles of cynomolgus monkeys, from multiple tissues, eating two high-fat, typical American diets (TAD) with similar macronutrient contents, with or without soy protein, DNA methylation status was successfully determined for 80.6% of the probes in at least one tissue using Illumina's HumanMethylation27 BeadChip. Overall methylation increased in liver and muscle tissue when monkeys switched from the TAD-soy to the TAD-casein diets. Genes involved in epigenetic processes, specifically homeobox genes (HOXA5, HOXA11, and HOXB1), and ABCG5 were among those that changed between diets. These data support the use of the HumanMethylation27 BeadChip in cynomolgus monkeys and identify epigenetic changes associated with dietary interventions with soy protein that may potentially affect the etiology of complex diseases.

Soy milk as probiotics

Posted by Chantel M. Contributed by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health

In the study of " Evaluation of agrowastes as immobilizers for probiotics in soy milk" by
Teh SS, Ahmad R, Wan-Abdullah WN, Liong MT., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, found that Soy milk containing free cells without agrowastes was used as the control. Immobilized probiotics showed increased growth, greater reduction of stachyose, sucrose, and glucose, higher production of lactic and acetic acids, and lower pH in soy milk compared to the control. The results illustrated that agrowastes could be used for the immobilization of probiotics with enhanced growth, utilization of substrates, and production of organic acids.

Soy milk and Infantile Colic

Posted by Chantel M. Contributed by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health


In the study of "Dietary Management of Infantile Colic: A Systematic Review" by Iacovou M, Ralston RA, Muir J, Walker KZ, Truby H., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, found that in six databases were searched from 1960, and 24 studies selected for inclusion. In breastfed infants, evidence suggests that a hypoallergenic maternal diet may be beneficial for reducing symptoms of colic. In formula-fed infants, colic may improve after changing from a standard cow's milk formula to either a hydrolysed protein formula or a soy-based formula. Fibre-supplemented formulae had no effect.

Soy and Multiple Sclerosis.

Posted by Chantel M. Contributed by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health


In the study of "The protease inhibitor, Bowman-Birk Inhibitor, suppresses experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis: a potential oral therapy for multiple sclerosis" by Gran B, Tabibzadeh N, Martin A, Ventura ES, Ware JH, Zhang GX, Parr JL, Kennedy AR, Rostami AM, posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, found that BBIC, a soybean extract enriched in BBI, significantly delayed disease onset and suppressed disease severity, clinically and pathologically, in all treatment protocols. Both in vitro and ex vivo, BBIC inhibited MBP-specific proliferation of lymph node cells. BBIC reduced the activity of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 and -9 in spleen cell supernatants and was detected in the CNS of treated rats. BBIC suppresses EAE, it can be administered orally, and it is safe and relatively inexpensive. It may have a therapeutic role in patients with MS.

Soy and Cerebral vascular disease

In the investigation of "Vasorelaxant and antioxidant activity of the isoflavone metabolite equol in carotid and cerebral arteries" by Jackman KA, Woodman OL, Chrissobolis S, Sobey CG., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, found that Equol possesses substantial vasodilator and weak antioxidant activity in cerebral arteries, with similar activity to daidzein, whereas in hypertension the vasorelaxant response to equol, but not daidzein, is preserved. However, daidzein possesses comparable direct vascular effects with equol, without the need for intestinal conversion to equol. Nevertheless, equol may represent a more useful therapeutic agent during cerebral vascular disease.

Soy and Memory performance

Posted by Chantel M. Contributed by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health


In the study of "Memory performance of hypercholesterolemic mice in response to treatment with soy isoflavones" by Liu YQ, Xin TR, Lü XY, Ji Q, Jin Y, Yang HD., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, found that SI treatment resulted in a decrease in blood cholesterol (TC) level (high lipid diet without SI group versus high lipid diet with a low SI level group or high lipid diet with a high SI level group, P<0.05) and triglyceride (TG) level (high lipid diet without SI group versus high lipid diet with a low SI level group or high lipid diet with a high SI level group, P<0.05). In addition, SI treatment resulted in a significant decrease in acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity and significant increases in glutamic acid and aspartic acid contents in the frontal cerebral cortex and hippocampus.

Soy and Neuroprotective effects

Posted by Chantel M. Contributed by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health


In the study of "Neuroprotective effects of genistein on dopaminergic neurons in the mice model of Parkinson's disease" by Liu LX, Chen WF, Xie JX, Wong MS., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, found that MPTP significantly decreased the levels of dopamine (DA) and its metabolites dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) and homovanillic acid (HVA) in the striatum, which could be restored by genistein or estrogen pretreatment. MPTP-challenge with genistein or estrogen pretreatment demonstrated reduced neurotoxicity, with tyrosine hydroxylase-immunoreactive (TH-IR) neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNpc) affected to a significantly lesser extent as compared to the MPTP treated control.
