Soy’s nutritional composition offers many health benefits. It includes isoflavones that may provide support maintaining bone density and a healthy cardiovascular system. These isoflavones also act as mild estrogens. In addition to these isoflavones, soy supplies phytic acid, which may provide antioxidant support. Each serving combines these important, naturally occurring isoflavones with 13 grams of soy protein. The FDA has determined that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol, including 25 grams of soy protein a day, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
GNC SuperFoods Soy Protein features an exceptionally high-quality soy protein that is processed with water, rather than harsh alcohol. By using water, the integrity of soy’s naturally occurring isoflavones are preserved.

- Health Notes
Soy Protein for Sports & FitnessSoy
Why Do Athletes Use It?*
Some athletes say that soy protein provides a source of low-fat, cholesterol-free protein.
What Do the Advocates Say?*
Protein is necessary for rebuilding tissue, which is especially important for bodybuilders. All types of protein provide the body with amino acids.
From an athletic point of view, soy is just another type of protein. Choosing soy protein over other types of protein adds variety to the protein choices available. However, because soy lowers cholesterol, it is an excellent choice for those also trying to lower their cholesterol levels.
Soy is a common ingredient in many meal replacements that are designed to provide a large amount of nutrients in a minimal amount of calories.
How Much Is Usually Taken by Athletes?
Adding protein to carbohydrate intake immediately after exercise may be helpful for improving recovery of glycogen (carbohydrate) stores after exercise, according to some,1, 2, 3 though not all,4, 5, 6, 7, 8 controlled studies. Preliminary studies have suggested that protein supplements may have biological effects that could improve muscle growth resulting from strength training, especially if liquid supplements (typically containing at least 10 grams of protein in addition to varying amounts of carbohydrate) are taken immediately after exercise.9, 10, 11 However, controlled studies have found no advantage of protein supplementation (up to about 100 grams per day or about 14 grams immediately following exercise) for improving strength or body composition as long as the diet already supplies typical amounts of protein and calories.12, 13, 14 In one preliminary study, elderly men participating in a 12-week strength training program took a liquid supplement containing 10 grams of protein (part of which was soy protein), 7 grams of carbohydrate and 3 grams of fat either immediately following exercise or two hours later.15 Men taking the supplement immediately following exercise experienced significantly greater gains in muscle growth and lean body mass than those supplementing two hours later, but strength gains were no different between the two groups. A controlled study of female gymnasts found that adding 0.45 grams of soy protein to a diet that was adequate in protein during an 8-week training program did not improve lean body mass compared to a placebo.16 No research has compared different sources of protein to see whether one source, such as soy protein, has a better or more consistent effect on exercise recovery or the results of strength training.*Athletes and fitness advocates may claim benefits for this supplement based on their personal or professional experience.

Comments about GNC NATURAL BRAND GNC SuperFoods Soy Protein - Unflavored:
Chalky texture. I tried mixing it with sugar free powdered drink mix, zero calorie sports drink and chicken broth. In all cases it was very foamy upon mixing in shaker bottle. Also settled to the bottom of the bottle/glass quickly; did not stay in suspension. Smells aweful and nothing masks the taste.
