as doctors prepare it in China

Dr. Sophie Chen from Botaniclab (Los Angeles), is a highly respected Taiwanese herbalist and a former Merck biochemist. She is the formulator of the world-renown SPES products. According to her, one can make one's own preparation from one-half cup of fresh soy beans. If fresh is not available, use dried ones, although fresh is preferred. 

  • Soak whole beans with some salt overnight with 5 times as much water as whole beans. 
  • Change water in the morning and blend in high speed blender. 
  • Bring the mixture to a boil in glass or stainless steel pan, keep stirring, reduce heat and simmer for 4 or 5 minutes. 
  • Let cool and skim foam off the top.
  • You can add flavour but never sugar. 

    It's best to drink the mixture during the first 6 hours. You can keep it another day in a glass jar
    refrigerated so that there will be little oxidation. Don't drink more then 2 cups daily as this is a very potent source of phytoestrogen. Chinese doctors find this drink as potent as the medicinal (and quite expensive) soy drinks in prevention and treatment of cancer.
