 Soy has many benefits for women especially.  Soy is rich in Calcium which as a woman ages her body will demand more of as it moves closer to menopause.  As a woman ages her body needs more calcium rich foods to support the bones and the hormone levels will change as the body ends the child bearing years.  Many women can even become lactose intolerant as they age and soy can benefit them greatly at this time.

Soy is said to be good for the heart and to keep the bones healthy.  Preventing some kinds of cancers such as prostate and breast cancer are also reasons many people choose soy over other milk.  Soy can also help the body reduce bad cholesterol levels.  Soy is also rich in omega 3 fatty acids, magnesium, zinc, calcium, phosphorus, B vitamins and fiber.

Soy can also fill the needs of many who are lactose intolerant.  Soy is also available in low fat cheeses and soy milk.  Now a person who is lactose intolerant can still enjoy cheeses and breakfast cereal.  Soy can even be used in weight loss shakes, snacks and tofu.
