Say “No” To Soy

When you eat a plant-based diet, it is expected that you will eat many soy products, such as soymilk and tofu, in order to get the protein you need. However, soy is actually detrimental to your health and the environment. Unfortunately, there are very few protein bars without soy in them these days, so when you want to enjoy a quick and convenient snack on the go, it can be difficult to find anything that fits your needs. That’s when Badass Power Cookie swoops into the rescue! Badass Power Cookie is your favorite dairy free, nut free, kosher certified, and non soy protein bar.

One of the main issues with soy is it contains phytoestrogens, which mimic estrogen hormones. In men, excessive consumption of phytoestrogens can lead to testosterone imbalance, infertility, and increased risk of cancer. In women, they can lead to excessive estrogen, which is linked to infertility and cancer as well. Soy also contains phytic acid, which inhibits your ability to absorb many essential minerals such as zinc, calcium, iron, and magnesium. It also contains protease inhibitors, which blocks the enzymes you need to digest certain proteins. Additionally, soy has been linked with an increased risk of autoimmune thyroid disease.

Beyond the many reasons soy is bad for your health, it is also unhealthy for the environment. Nearly all soybeans grown today are genetically modified and are sprayed with many pesticides and herbicides. Soy is also fed to livestock and has the same negative effects on them as on humans, meaning these harmful properties are then passed onto meat sold in grocery stores.

Fortunately, Badass Power Cookie contains absolutely no soy but is still an excellent source of vegan protein. This is because we use spirulina, which gives you plenty of protein without the health and environmental dangers of soy. When you need a soy free protein bar, Badass Power Cookie is here to save the day! Badass with the best of them with Badass Power Cookie.
