Soy-Based Foods Can Decrease Muscle Atrophy

Healthy muscles are integral to overall good health, as muscle mass is important for appropriate metabolism and mobility. Soy, originally a bean, but available in various forms plays a major role in the diet of those who prefer vegetable protein and has numerous health benefits. Muscle atrophy or reduction in the muscle mass due to aging or injury can be decreased by using soya in the daily diet. Soy isoflavone inhibits muscle loss and can be used to treat age-related muscle weakness and injuries.
