Eating Soy May Help Bone Health

A study of over 24,000 Chinese women has revealed that those that ate the most soy had the fewest bone fractures after menopause.  It appears that eating at least 5 grams of soy a day helped to prevent bone fractures, but those that ate more than 13 grams a day got the most benefit. 13 grams is equivalent to more that 60 milligrams of soy isoflavones. The greatest protection was afforded to those women who were within 10 years of their menopause as increased Soy intake did not appear to strengthen weakened bones.
