- Edamame is an anti-inflammatory. Inflammation is one of the worst things in the body as it can cause or worsen so many illnesses. Add some edamame to your diet especially if you suffer from inflammation. One easy way to eat edamame is to use it as a salad topping.
- Edamame can help to jumpstart the immune system. One study just a few years ago found that soybeans kept cancer from developing in animals that had been exposed to carcinogens. Their isoflavones acted like roadblocks, starving cancer cells by preventing the formation of new blood vessels.
If edamame is not currently a part of your diet, I would suggest adding it.
