Joint research conducted by Seoul National University (SNU), Cornell University and the University of Minnesota shows that Rat eye bean is far richer in polycyanidin (a type of polyphenol with antioxidant, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties) compared to regular black and yellow soybeans.

Scientific studies suggest that Rat eye bean may aid in the prevention of diabetes, hypertension, lung illnesses, and enhance circulation.

In comparison to common yellow and black soybean cultivars, Yak-Kong contained significantly higher concentrations of total antioxidant activity, total phenolic content, total flavonoid content and total anthocyanin content. Yak-Kong has promising potential for further development as a functional food source targeted at atherosclerosis prevention.
Our results suggest that the extract of YK fermented by AOA2017 has potential to be a new functional food material with its enhanced bioactive compounds which may help to prevent atherosclerosis caused by oxidative stress.
We prepared the fermented YK extract by using a novel lactic acid bacterium, Pediococcus pentosaceus AOA2017 (AOA2017) isolated from Eleusine coracana, and found that the antioxidant ability was enhanced after fermentation. Together with the previous studies, our results suggest that the extract of YK fermented by AOA2017 has potential to be a new functional food material with its enhanced bioactive compounds which may help to prevent atherosclerosis caused by oxidative stress.
Epidemiological studies suggest that soybean and its isoflavones have immunoregulatory activities. Our results suggest that 7,3',4'-THIF improves Dermatophagoides farina body extract-induced atopic dermatitis in NC/Nga mice.
In this study, we show that coumestrol, a metabolite of the soybean isoflavone daidzein, has a preventive effect on skin photoaging in three-dimensional human skin equivalent model. These findings suggest that coumestrol is a novel dietary compound with potential application in preventing and improving UVB-associated skin aging.
