How Many Biological Benifits of Soy Peptide Do You Know?​

Dec 20, 2019

Soy peptide is a deep processed product of soy protein. It is a mixture of low-molecular peptides and has a light yellow powder. Compared with soybean protein, the biological function and nutritional value of soybean peptide powder have been greatly improved. This article reviews three points about the biological benifits of soy peptide powder and highlights their application prospects in food development.

◆ Lower blood pressure

Blood pressure is regulated by ACE. ACE can catalyze the conversion of inactive angiotensin Ⅰ to angiotensin Ⅱ. Angiotensin Ⅱ is active and has the effect of contracting vascular smooth muscle. Soy peptides can inhibit the activity of ACE, prevent the contraction of vascular smooth muscle, play a role in lowering blood pressure, have significant effects on patients with essential hypertension, have no antihypertensive effect on normal people, and have no toxic side effects, and long-term use can improve blood circulation .

◆ Reduce cholesterol and blood lipids

The second point: biological benifits of soy peptide powder can reduce cholesterol and blood lipids. Soy peptides are better at lowering cholesterol than soy protein. Soy peptides can prevent the reabsorption of cholesterol, effectively excrete cholesterol, and prevent excessive absorption of cholesterol. It has the effect of reducing total cholesterol for people with high cholesterol value, but not for normal people, and it can also prevent patients from raising cholesterol caused by eating high cholesterol. In addition, soy peptides have the effect of lowering low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and increasing high-density lipoprotein (HDL). The US Food and Drug Administration recommends eating 25g of soy peptides daily. Therefore, soy peptides can be used to produce health foods that lower cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular system diseases.

◆ Promote fat metabolism and lose weight

Protein is easier to promote energy metabolism than fat and carbohydrates, soy peptides have a stronger effect on promoting energy metabolism. Soy peptides powder can activate sympathetic nerves, promote lipid metabolism, and on the basis of ensuring sufficient peptide intake, minimize the remaining energy components and reduce fat storage, which can not only achieve the purpose of weight loss, but also ensure the body's physical fitness.

Of course, biological benifits of soy peptide powder has other aspects.But it is a nutritional food.
