Proteins for those who train:

Proteins for vegetarians:

Soy

It contains all the amino acids and helps reduce LDL cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. Soy can improve bone health and immune function. (Disclaimer: The scientific community is divided on whether soy products are good or bad for you, with half of the studies praising soy products and the other half disagreeing - we'll let you decide for yourself how to feel about them). However, we strongly recommend that you consume organic and processed soybeans, since if you are not, you will be consuming pesticide residues.
