Is Soy Sauce Safe?

The use of soy sauce in the diet is not on the first place because this is not the main dish, or rather, not the most basic condiment. This product had not been so widespread among our cooking until recently. However, today this sauce for us is one of the most common and surprising to the taste of condiment. Indeed, the taste of the soy sauce is very specific and unusual, and so many began to use it not only adding to sushi, but also applying it in ordinary dishes and foods. So, the sauce is used, for example, when cooking rice, macaroni or vermicelli and so on.
 
If we compare our cookery and cuisine of the peoples of Asia, then they use sauce almost everywhere because it has been distributed there for a long time. The soya, which is used for cooking has been grown in Asia for 500 years already. And knowingly grow it because this product is also very useful. Asian people use the soy sauce instead of salt, and by the way, it is much more useful than the salt.
 
If you have not tried this sauce and are thinking about its use, you should find out more details about whether this product is useful or harmful, if any contraindications are available or not. And, running ahead, we note that the soy sauce has useful and harmful qualities that affect the body in different ways.
 

Useful Qualities of Soy Sauce

As for the useful properties of the soy sauce, they can be divided into several parts, and indeed, theirs are many. First, it is necessary to note the high content of amino acids in the composition of the sauce. So, numerous antioxidants contain in its structure, which are ten to hundreds times effective than those of citrus fruit antioxidants. Thus, antioxidants counteract the free radicals that contribute to the processes of aging, the development of diseases, cancer and others. That is why the inhabitants of Asia are such long-lives because the sauce, it turns out, is one of the ways of prolonging the life. In addition, it perfectly influences the immune system, strengthening it, which contributes to the fight against viruses and infections, down to serious and dangerous viruses.
 
The soy sauce improves the blood circulation, by about 30-40 percents, thereby, having a positive effect on the entire circulatory system. In addition, the sauce greatly slows the occurrence and development of cardiovascular diseases, "renews" the blood and supplements the body with energy in general. This is due to the fact that the nutrients that make up its composition interact with the blood components, the walls of the veins and arteries.
 
As for the external changes and gain in health that can be manifested when using the sauce, then there are the several positive points:

- effective in fighting insomnia;
- helps reducing headaches, migraines;
- relieves swelling, significantly faster promotes the disappearance of bruises;
- reduces fatigue in the muscles, so, in the evening, fatigue is not felt.
 
Also, the soy sauce is recommended for diets because it is low in calories (only 70 Kcal per 100 gms) and contribute to lowering cholesterol in the blood. This helps reducing weight, and exercise full control over it. In addition, the soy sauce is quite possible to replace other "condiment" components, for example, salt or sunflower oil.
 

Harmful Effect and Adverse of Sauce

Note that you cannot abuse the soy sauce because it has its own negative aspects. By the way, it is the same as using the ordinary salt − the salt over-consuming can lead to the accumulation of salts, the emergence of various diseases associated with the genitourinary system, and so on. In fact, much depends on the composition of the sauce and its quality. Today, quite a lot of different soy sauces are prepared according to different recipes, but they are, in truth, far from perfect.
 
Therefore, for the right choice of the soy sauce, you need to know a few key factors that will help avoiding the use of poor-quality goods. Today, quite a lot of different soy sauce is prepared according to different recipes, but they are, in truth, far from perfect. In the cheap sauce there are used old, and even worse, the moldy soybean, which may contain fungal germs and viruses. Pay attention to the certification of goods and the brand. The branded products are more likely to be of better quality.
 
Thus, the soy sauce is a completely harmless product, of course, up to a certain extent. His overdose can cause damage to the body, similar to the damage caused by the ordinary kitchen salt.
