Osteoporosis is caused by hormone and aging and have been proven to target women in most cases. I’m pretty sure most of us know that milk prevents osteoporosis. However, not everyone is a big fan of milk due to its strong dairy smell , not to mention the lactose intolerant peeps. Hence , switching it up with soy milk is definitely the best avenue . It is because soy milk which is rich in phytoestrogen increases absorption of calcium in your body and strengthens your bone thus preventing osteoporosis.

Soy milk is a nutritious and delicious drink . However , if you are sensitive of oestrogen, you should reduce or avoid consuming soy milk.

Soymilk brings so many benefits! So what are you waiting for ? Try drinking soy milk for your well-being from now on!
