Then damaging the regenerative layer of the subcutaneous tissue that allows a continuous exchange of epithelial cells. Soy contains numerous antioxidants that will fight free radicals by reducing the possibility of damage to tissue cells.

Then it can be very harmful as a consequence of exposure to ultraviolet rays. Soy provides numerous antioxidants and will therefore help the skin defend itself against the action of these harmful substances. So it can be a valid ally of our beauty and also a valid substitude for meat. Of course if consumed in moderation, in fact 50 or 60 grams two or three times a week may be sufficient. These benefits would be greatest if we chose the organic (BIO) and non-genetically modified (no GMO) soybean variety. doc. Massimiliano Mangafà
