The importance of soybean (Glycine max) as a source of biologically valuable substances
AbstractIn the paper the biological valuable components of soybean are discussed. Soya is widespread product in the world. Soya is a prevention agent against of cardiovascular diseases, tromboembolosm. Consumption of soybean protein is decreased the content of cholesterol in blood, the risk of steoporosis, promotes preservation of bones in the elderly. The useful futures of soybean are provided by the large content of protein, izoflavonoids, lecithin, micro- and macroelements and vitamins. High concentrations of biological active components in soybean allow using them in the pharmaceutical industry for production of drugs and dietary supplements. Phytopreparations like Inoclim, Estroel, produced by pharmaceutical companies on the basis of soybean extract, containing soybean isoflavonoides against menopausal syndrome are reviewed. Soybean isoflavonoids like genistine and daidestin have antioxidant, anticarcinogenic effect, normalize the function of the immune system and hemostasis The study of biological valuable components of Kazakhstan soybean varieties are required.
