Are Soy Bran Tablets Good Supplements to Take?

06/15/2004

Question:

I bought a bottle of soy bran 500mg tablets. Are they a good supplement to take?

Answer:

Most of the studies showing benefit from soy have used soy foods, not supplements.  We don`t have enough information at this time on supplements, so I usually recommend that patients eat foods high in soy protein such as tofu, soy nuts, miso, and soy milk.
