Sweet gist, ladies! Did you know that soy milk can prevent postmenopausal syndrome?

Yes, soy milk contains phytoestrogen, a hormone that makes women less vulnerable to postmenopausal symptoms like insomnia and mood swings. Studies featured in Soya.be also show that you’re less likely to lose calcium in your kidney and have a heart disease, all thanks to the the milk’s soluble fibre that lowers cholesterol.

Made by soaking, grinding and boiling soybeans in water, soy milk is naturally low in sugar content as stated in Fitday, It also contains the same amount of calories as skimmed milk, and is highly rich in vegetable proteins

  1. Iced Lemon Drink :

Mint Tea

A delicious and refreshing way to boost your health is by drinking mint tea. It has the ability to improve your digestion significantly, promoting the passage of food as it moves through your digestive tract.

Also worth noting is mint tea’s ability to support the body and mind, as cited by Organicfacts.net. It’s also a great relief for nasal congestion because its menthol ingredient acts as a natural decongestant.
