Miso Soup Health Benefits
Miso soup is rich with antioxidants and protective fatty acids, and a healthy dose of Vitamin E. It also boasts protein and Vitamin B12, and a nice selection of minerals to help boost the strength of your immune system.
Miso soup is also said to help regulate the hormone oestrogen in women, a hormone that can cause tumors to develop especially breast cancer. This is attributed to the magic ingredient of fermented soy paste, used to make miso. Though research into this healthy characteristic of miso soup is still ongoing, there are still a bevy of other nutrients beneficial to humans.
The wakame seaweed added to miso soup also possesses its own nutrients, helping to lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol. The combination of wakame and miso is also said to be an effective fighter against nicotine-related disorders.
There are some health advocates request that you eat more than one bowl per day, but an argument against that recommendation is that miso soup also contains high quantities of salt, and so consumption should be regulated.
