Natural soy isoflavones have been proven to help menopausal symptoms for women, and soy promotes good prostate health for men.

Soy milk is rich in protein, and contains soluble fiber. In addition to being cholesterol-free, studies have shown that a diet including soy milk actually helps lower levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol, while leaving HDL (good) cholesterol unaffected.
