Zdrowsze is quite much in the news nowadays, given such initiatives as Jamie Oliver’s campaign to change the eating habits of our younger generation. Not a simple task as adults like us want to be educated too. In this column I would like to concentrate on the increase of phytonutrient rich, soy based beverages which originate from the Far East. It’s an special formula that included scientists and nutritionists.

It’s full of phytonutrients a naturally occurring plant chemicals very similar to human oestrogens (hormones that the body produces for development and growth and good health). Oestrogens are critical for female reproductive system in addition to the bones, heart and mind. Phytonutrients also function as anti-oxidants that are important for promoting general health. There’s scientific evidence that people lacking in adequate dietary phytonutrients are more vulnerable to several health problems like cardiovascular disease and cancer, than individuals primarily in the East which have a diet rich in them.

Produkt ten jest pełen izoflawonów. Kobiety po menopauzie są narażone na choroby układu krążenia i osteoporozę z powodu braku estrogenów.

Badania epidemiologiczne wykazały, że istnieje znacząca różnica w zachorowalności na raka wśród różnych grup kulturowych (wyższa w krajach zachodnich niż wschodnich).

Wniosek

Clinical trials are encouraging suggesting that higher intake of phytoestrogens, particularly isoflavones are associated with decrease in the risk of developing breast cancer, endometrial cancer, prostate cancer and cancer. Lutein is largely found in yellow, red, green and orange fruits and vegetables but sadly we don’t eat enough of them. Among lutein’s primary functions is to offer protection against oxidative and free radical damage. However levels of lutein from the body are completely controlled by dietary option.
