Soy Protein Can Help with Improving Symptoms of Bowel Diseases
A new study, executed by the researchers from Pennsylvania State University, found that consuming soy protein can improve symptoms of the inflammatory bowel diseases, such as colon inflammation and the loss of gut barrier function.
For their study, the team of scientists replaced 12% of sources of proteins, other than soy, in the diets of the mice with soy protein concentrate. The doses of soy protein concentrate substituted were equal to the amount that could be potentially used in humans.
Having analyzed the received results, the researchers discovered that soy protein concentrate has an antioxidant and cytoprotective effect in human bowel cells, developed in a lab. Moreover, in the mice with induced IBD, substituting just 12% of other protein with soy protein concentrate was enough to stop body weight loss and improve spleen swelling.
