Alterative medication and natural remedies have been used from ancient time for the treatment and wellbeing of human. Medicinal plants are considered to be effective and for most important for the above purposes. The Mother Nature has provided us with a huge count of flora and fauna. Some of the natural medicinal plants are so common that we use them in daily life without knowing their medicinal importance. Glycine max (L.) Merr is the best example of it. The plant is commonly known as soy bean…

Hylocereus undatus extract was found to decrease the duration of catalepsy significantly and increase count in Actophotometer test respectively as compared to Haloperidol group and significantly increases fall off time in Rota rod test, Hang test, Horizontal bar test and increase number in Actophile test respectively.
Traditional Dietary Knowledge of a Marginal Hill Community in the Central Himalaya: Implications for Food, Nutrition, and Medicinal Security
The food–medicine interface as observed by the marginal hill communities in the central Himalaya is explored with an aim to assess traditional agriculture and food plants with relation to dietary diversity and nutritional and medicinal values based on comprehensive research.
Root System Architecture, Copper Uptake and Tissue Distribution in Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) Grown in Copper Oxide Nanoparticle (CuONP)-Amended Soil and Implications for Human Nutrition
Until the potential toxicity and risk from CuONP-fortified soybean seed ingestion is characterized in humans, it is cautioned recommending such seeds for daily human consumption when addressing food Cu-deficiency and associated diseases, globally.

Increasing use of soyfoods and their potential role in cancer prevention.
Extraction, Isolation and Antimicrobial Activity of Crude and Purified Ferritin extract from seeds of Soyabean (Glycine max (L.) Merr. )
The present study successfully isolated and purified the single unit of Glycine max (L.) Merr.
The Ecology of Tropical Food Crops
This updated edition retains the successful formula of the first edition, and will serve the needs of advanced students of tropical agriculture, as well as professionals engaged in research and extension work in tropical crop production.
Phyto-oestrogens and Western diseases.
Evidence is provided suggesting that both lignans and isoflavonoids may prevent the development of cancer as well as atherosclerosis, and no definite recommendations can be made as to the dietary amounts needed for prevention of disease.
Soy isoflavonoids and cancer prevention. Underlying biochemical and pharmacological issues.
The plasma genistein levels achievable with soy food feeding are unlikely to be sufficient to inhibit the growth of mature, established breast cancer cells by chemotherapeutic-like mechanisms, but these levels are sufficient to regulate the proliferation of epithelial cells in the breast and thereby may cause a chemopreventive effect.
Metal Chelating Activity of Glycine max Seed Extract on Ferrous + Doxorubicin-Induced Cardiotoxicity in Rats.
It may be concluded that Glycine max alcoholic extract posseses cardioprotective and metal chelating activity in Doxorubicin induced cardiotoxicity in rats.
Anti-obesity and hypolipidemic effects of black soybean anthocyanins.
It is indicated that the anthocyanins in black soybean seed coats have an anti-obesity effect, which can reverse the effects of HFD on body weight, adipose tissue weight, and serum lipid contents.
Beneficial role of dietary phytoestrogens in obesity and diabetes.
Evidence is emerging that dietary phytoestrogens play a beneficial role in obesity and diabetes. Nutritional intervention studies performed in animals and humans suggest that the ingestion of soy
Beneficial effects of soy protein consumption for renal function.
The clinical observations led to the soy-protein hypothesis that substitution of soy protein for animal protein results in less hyperfiltration and glomerular hypertension with resulting protection from diabetic nephropathy.
