Health Benefits of Tofu

 

 

Made from curdled soybean milk, tofu is pale white in colour. It contains isoflavones that reduce bad cholesterol levels in our body thus preventing cardiovascular diseases. Tofu is also an excellent source of iron which helps in the making of haemoglobin. It is indeed a perfect food due to its composition. It has high amounts of proteins, zero cholesterols, and low amounts of carbs. It also has high amounts of calcium and vitamin E. Here’s a list of benefits tofu will give you when consumed on a regular basis.

Heart disease

Tofu has been known to lower the risk of heart disease. It can reduce the levels of low-density lipoprotein or bad cholesterol in your body which in turn can boost your cardiovascular health.

Cancer

Tofu being a good source of selenium – a mineral needed by the body for the proper functioning of the antioxidant system – protects our system from colon cancer. Men can reduce the risk of prostate cancer by eating tofu. According to studies, women who consume good amounts of tofu are 60% less likely to have ‘high risk’ breast tissues than women who eat less amounts or do not eat tofu.

Menopause

Tofu has a high dose of calcium content which is required by women when they hit menopause. It helps reduce hot flashes, prevent the high bone-loss risk related to menopause. It is also effective in preventing rheumatoid arthritis. It is also helpful during pre-menopausal stage when there is an imbalance in the oestrogen levels.

Ageing

Another benefit of eating tofu regularly is that it slows down the ageing process considerably. Tofu helps retain the elasticity of the skin and tones the facial muscles which in turn prevents ageing. Making a paste of tofu and applying it on your face is also a good idea as it nourishes the skin.

Hair loss

 

The human hair is primarily made of a protein called keratin. By eating tofu, your hair gets the required protein to produce hair more and keep the existing ones healthy. Instead of splurging on expensive treatments, add tofu to your daily diet to solve hair loss issues.
