Consumption of Soy Milk May Improve Lipid Profile in Adults

In a randomized, controlled study involving 84 apparently healthy young to middle-aged subjects, results indicate that daily consumption of soy milk may help improve lipid profile. The subjects were randomized to received 500 mL of soy milk daily or no soy milk (controls) for a period of 21 days. At intervention end, mean plasma total cholesterol (TC) reduced by 11%, plasma LDL cholesterol reduced by 25% and mean plasma HDL cholesterol increased by 20% in the soy milk group, compared with baseline. No significant differences were observed in the control group. Thus, the authors of this study conclude, "Daily consumption of soymilk significantly decreased atherogenic plasma cholesterol concentration. This suggests that soy drink could be an important non-pharmacological cholesterol-reducing agent."
