Soya Sauce increases the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids in fish
and contains 10 times the antioxidants of red wine.

Sources of information:

In the Telegraph newspaper on 18/11/09, there was an article about how adding soy sauce to baked fish enhances its omega-3 health benefits. According to the article, baked or boiled fish is a better source than fried fish of omega-3 fatty acids (which have been shown to protect the heart), and adding low salt soy sauce to a fishy meal enhances the benefits further. The researchers studied omega-3 consumption among nearly 200,000 people, as well as the different ways the fish was prepared; their findings were presented to the American Heart Association.

According to Wikipedia, a study done by the National University of Singapore showed that Chinese dark soy sauce contains 10 times the antioxidants of red wine, and can help prevent cardiovascular disease.
