Eating soy-based-food items are generally considered to be a good habit as far as heart-health is confirmed. In Japanese men, the impact was there to be seen in a large magnitude but the same reduced in American men.
The reason for the same is the gut bacteria. A new set of study has shown that it is gut bacteria that decides the impact of soy-food on tour heart health. Induviduals, who are able to produce good amount of ‘equol’ can experience more benefits of the soy food when compared to people who produce less amount of ‘equol’.
