Health Benefits of Soy Protein Powder

Soy protein powder is a complete protein because it contains all of the essential amino acids, which must be obtained through food since our bodies do not produce them naturally. This makes soy protein powder a great option for vegan and vegetarian diets which often lack adequate levels of protein.
Soy protein may prevent bone loss and reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis. A 2003 study led by the Oklahoma State University showed that soy protein was more effective in bone formation and helping the body retain calcium compared to milk-based protein. This study suggests that soy protein may lower the risk of osteoporosis in women.
