Soy & Chickpea Benefits
Stroke patients who regularly eat soybeans and chickpeas can reduce their risk of additional strokes and
cardiovascular disease, according to a study recently published in the European Heart Journal. The benefits
are traced to isoflavones, compounds naturally found in soybeans, chickpeas, and legumes.
The study examined 102 patients diagnosed with heart disease who had suffered a first or recurrent stroke in the past
six months. Patients receiving a 12-week course of isoflavone as an 80mg daily dietary supplement had significantly
improved blood flow through the arteries.
Isoflavones are phytoestrogens, naturally occurring chemicals that mimic the human hormone estrogen, known to protect
against heart disease. Soy isoflavones have been shown to reduce cardiovascular disease risk by inhibiting the growth
of cells that form artery-clogging plaque.
