Intolerance to soy drink

    This product is considered a vegetable drink, which is obtained from soybeans put in water and then mixed. It has been consumed by humans since the 1990s, and its consumption in the West has increased considerably, as the media has bombarded us with information about the benefits of soy and why we should take it.

Due to its publicity, it has started to be more and more consumed, and at the moment it is quite easy to find it in medicinal plants, in health food stores and even in supermarkets.

Many people are looking to switch to an herbal drink and have heard that soy drink is a good alternative. Many people who are allergic to cow’s milk think that their soy drink works great.

People should also consider the fact that there are people who have an intolerance to soy drink. In the case of these people who no longer digest legumes very well (lentils, chickpeas, soybeans, beans, etc.) they may notice that they do not finish digesting, one hundred percent, this soy drink.

If you are part of this group of people, you will have the following symptoms: bloating, gas, and even diarrhea. Whether the reaction is more or less virulent will depend on the degree of intolerance.

Macrobiotics recommend that if you drink soy drink, it is better to boil it for about ten minutes, on very low heat, with a pinch of salt (beware hypertensive people). This makes it more digestive.

Nowadays, many producers start combining soy with oats, rice, and even almonds. Thus, we get a more digestive drink with more nutrients. Most countries, in addition to soy drink, and other types of milk or vegetable drinks (walnuts, unsweetened almonds, oatmeal, hazelnuts, quinoa, rice, or various combinations of these ingredients).

If you have doubts about what kind of product you can use, I recommend you ask your specialist. The fact of varying is usually positive because this way we will never have an excess or a lack of certain nutrients.

In conclusion, I recommend that people first learn to listen to their body whenever you introduce a new food into your diet. It is important to see if we are going to the bathroom better or worse now, if we feel bloated or if, in the end, we have deflated, if we have symptoms that we did not have before, etc.
