Aug 2017

Due to regular environmental changes, pollution and eating habits, the chances of humans contracting life-threatening diseases is high. But antioxidants can immensely improve the immune system of the body. Antioxidants also play an important role in fighting diseases, avoiding free radicals and even preventing cancer. Tofu, a soy protein mostly well-known in China, America and Japan, is a food that is a rich source of antioxidants and also a rich source of selenium, which is a mineral that is very important for the proper functioning of antioxidants.

Tofu can also help reduce the chances of asthma, early ageing and arthritis. It also helps prevent cardiovascular diseases as the abundance of magnesium in this food helps reduce the risk of heart attacks. Tofu also controls blood pressure levels as well as blood sugar levels and when made part of the diet and consumed on a regular basis, tofu can even combat type 2 diabetes.
