Soya in Sports Nutrition: Using Soya Life Products

The research into using soy protein in sports nutrition has positive results.

  1. Soy enhances athletic performance. The isoflavones found in soy protein produce antioxidant effects, which speed recovery and reduce muscle soreness and inflammation.
  2. Soy protein has been shown to an excellent anabolic aid in athletes’ diets, used independently, or together with whey protein, to stimulate further gains in muscle.
  3. In addition, soy does supply a full complement of amino acids for the exercising muscles – muscles will become larger and stronger with soy protein. In fact, athletes who incorporate both soy and whey protein in their nutritional regimens may benefit from their different rates of digestion and amino acid absorption.
  4. Whey protein digests more quickly, while soy protein digests more gradually. Together, they may provide a more prolonged, deliberate release of amino acids to key muscle groups.

In addition:  Soy protein has value both PRE- and POST- Workout:

  • Use of a low GI drink (i.e. soya-based) pre- exercise and training improves performance and endurance.
  • Further studies have shown that soya ingested following exercise, is capable of prolonging protein synthesis in skeletal muscle.

All types of athletes, whether competitive OR casual will benefit from use of the Soya Life range of products, as they are convenient, cheap, extremely effective, and tasty.

  • The Soya Life Instant Meal Replacement Drink, in combination with adequate water intake, also aids in preventing dehydration.
