One important review article (2013) showed that if one is exposed to soy foods early on in life, the beneficial health effects from soy foods will manifest itself in later life. This is probably as result of gut flora colonizing the intestine during childhood as a result of continuous exposure to soy (which contains prebiotics that “feed” probiotics in the gut), producing long-term health benefits.
Use the Soya Life Porridge as a very suitable and easy way to start the day.
