Soybeans Can Be Used For Loosing Fat

Soybeans Can Be Used For Loosing Fat

It has been seen that Beta-conglycinins is found in soybeans, which helps in limiting the amount of fat accumulation and also reduces inflammation. The findings on soy protein were published in Molecular Nutrition and Food Research by Researcher Elvira de Mejia from the University of Illinois.

"We found that soybeans rich in beta-conglycinins limit lipid accumulation in fat cells by inhibiting an enzyme called fatty acid synthase. What's more, we have identified the specific peptides (digested proteins) that do this, and we are now beginning to understand the mechanism behind it. This is exciting research because it could lead to the development of nutraceuticals to fight obesity", said de Mejia.

An enzyme in the body known as fatty acid synthase is slowed down by the beta-conglycinins which avoid lipids from accumulating in fat cells. It is believed that this would help to stop obesity and future development of nutraceuticals. Soy is rich in protein.

It has also been seen that people who consume soy protein feel full and do not eat much which helps the to lose weight in future.
