Soy recognized as heart healthy!

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced that it has approved a health claim, to be used on food labels and in food labeling, on the association between soy protein and the reduced risk of coronary heart disease.

Food products that contain a minimum of 6.25 grams of soy protein per serving will be allowed to claim that eating a minimum of 25 grams of soy protein every day significantly reduces the risk of coronary heart disease.

This health claim, developed by the FDA, and based on scientific evidence from more than 50 independent studies, concluded that 25 grams of soy protein daily, with a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, reduces the risk of coronary heart disease.

Millions of people worldwide die from coronary heart disease each year, for which elevated cholesterol levels are a contributing cause.

GNLD has known of the powerful phytonutrient protection offered by soy for many years. That's why you will see soy and soy-derived raw materials throughout the GNLD product line. This latest news is just one of the many examples of the science behind GNLD nutritional products.
