Eat soybeans to prevent diseases

Soybeans contain high levels of several health–beneficial compounds including tocopherols, which have antioxidant properties. These molecules can be used in the development of functional foods, which have specific health–beneficial properties and can be used in the treatment or prevention of diseases. Tocopherols exist in four forms of which gamma–tocopherol is found in greatest concentration in soybeans. However, alpha–tocopherol has the greatest antioxidant activity, and is the form converted to vitamin E in the human body.
