I've been reading about soybeans, and they really are a super-food!
I'm interested. Where do you buy soybeans? How do you buy them: dried, frozen, canned, or fresh? Are they expensive? Do they come just as beans, or in their pod plant things? Tell me all about your soybeans! :)
I was pretty sure they didn't carry them in regular stores like Albertsons or Publix, but I could be wrong... I really wish they carried them. ):
We buy tonnes of dried soy beans, mung beans, red (mung?) beans, black beans, raw peanuts etc from chinatown. They all come deshelled. The soy beans are white/cream coloured.
He would soak it in water overnight with raw peanuts, and season with spices + ginger and steam it as a topping for rice.
you can buy frozen edamame in the pod at most stores (they are not matured soy beans (i believe)-- so green colour). Superstore also carries edameme that is de-shelled. I use them instead of peas in my cooking.
Not sure about canned or fresh soy beans tho.
Oh! you can also get roasted soybeans. Watch out tho, some look roasted but are actually oily (deep fried i think) and coated with salted.
I am looking for info on the product below. I know it is a money maker, but is it save and has anyone had good experiance with it?

All of these above factors lead to a build up of acidic toxins that cause
the loss of glutathione as a non-nutritive buffer leading to cellular aging,
disease and finally death.
Why is Glutathione Essential to Health?
Glutathione's three major roles in the body are summarized by the letters
- Blood Booster
- Cell Detoxifier
These are the three critical processes driven by glutathione.
The Master Antioxidant
Over the past thirty years, researchers have explored the role of
antioxidants in good health as well as the treatment and prevention of
diseases involving oxidation or fermentation by metabolic acids.
Well known and widely used antioxidants such as vitamin A, vitamin E and
selenium neutralize acid. They occur naturally in nature, but not in the
body. They must be introduced as part of a balanced diet.
Given the critical role of antioxidants in good health, it is not surprising that
the body itself manufactures its own natural antioxidants.The most important of these is glutathione. Because all other antioxidants
depend upon the presence of glutathione to function properly, scientists
call it 'the master antioxidant.'Glutathione binds to toxins, forming a water-soluble complex - which is
ultimately excreted in the urine or bile as waste.
Food for the Blood
Elevated glutathione levels enable the body to produce more white blood
cells. White blood cells are the body's garbage collectors and are the most
important cells for maintaining sterility of the body fluids.
Glutathione plays a central role in the proper function of the white blood
cells. Dr. Bustavo Bounous, a leading glutathione expert, says, 'The
limiting factor in the proper activity of our lymphocytes (the white blood
cells) is the availability of glutathione.' In other words, healthy growth
and activity of the white blood cells depends upon glutathione's
availability. Put simply, glutathione is 'food' for the white blood cells.
Whether we know it or not, we are continually inhaling and ingesting natural
and synthetic acidic toxins. They are unavoidable in these modern times
both in our polluted cities and our poorly engineered food supplies. When
the body has the health and the nourishment it needs, it works tirelessly to
eliminate acidic toxins and to protect itself. But, increasing levels of environmental pollution are
depleting the body's store of glutathione more and more rapidly.
