Writing in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, researchers at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles say animal tests have shown that genistein, found in soy-based products, stops cells from making stress proteins produced by cancer cells. Those proteins help cancer cells survive attacks by the body’s immune system and anti-cancer therapies, researchers say. “Genistein is a natural component of the diet of Chinese and Japanese who are at low risk for breast, colon, and prostate cancers,” researchers say.

Haelan 951 is an international award-winning, super nutritious, fermented soybean protein beverage. In addition to its soybean protein concentration, Haelan 951 contains large quantities of single cell proteins and their metabolites produced by the Haelan 951 patented fermentation process. Haelan’s fermentation process hydrolyzes many of the soybean proteins into amino acids and compounds that are rich in nitrogen and fermentation metabolites of the naturally occurring isoflavones such as genistein, protease inhibitors, saponins, phytosterols, and inositol hexaphosphate compounds in soybeans. This amounts to the ideal Adjuvant Nutrition to help boost the immune system for those who would benefit from a product that eliminates calories from fats and carbohydrates but includes quality soybean proteins and their inherent nutrients, micronutrients, and amino acids, as well as, a good source of dietary nitrogen.
