Scientists found that the sauce—derived from fermented soybeans—contains antioxidant properties about 10 times more effective than red wine and 150 times more potent than vitamin C..
Ages ago when old wives tales stopped anyone with a wound to take soy sauce (the belief was it would colour the scar formed black), I chose to take mine!
That defiance seems to pay off. I have no chicken pox scars. They scars healed so quickly. Now we know why.
Time to grab that bottle of humble soy sauce and more excuses for chinese take aways!
