Frequently Asked Questions
About EQUELLE & How to Use
The ingredients in EQUELLE are: Fermented Soy Germ (S-equol source), Cellulose Gel, Calcium Phosphate, Stearic Acid, Sorbitol, Silicon Dioxide, Sodium Silicate, Croscarmellose Sodium, Organic Coating (Tapioca Maltodextrin, Sunflower Lecithin, Palm Oil, Guar Gum).
The active ingredient in EQUELLE is S-equol, a naturally derived compound of the soy isoflavone daidzein that is produced through the fermentation of soy germ. This molecule naturally occurs in the gut of some women after eating soy, and may result in fewer hot flashes† for menopausal women. It is structurally similar to estrogen, and mimics some, but not all, estrogenic activities.
The inactive ingredients, necessary for the manufacturing and coating of EQUELLE tablets, include: Cellulose Gel, Calcium Phosphate, Stearic Acid, Sorbitol, Silicon Dioxide, Sodium Silicate, Croscarmellose Sodium, Organic Coating (Tapioca Maltodextrin, Sunflower Lecithin, Palm Oil, Guar Gum).
Isoflavones are plant-based compounds present in very small amounts in many foods, but found most abundantly in soybeans. Isoflavones are thought to have antioxidant properties with the potential to positively affect health. Soy isoflavones are sometimes used as a supplement for the management of menopausal symptoms. The three main isoflavones naturally occurring in soybeans are genistein, daidzein and glycitein.Although EQUELLE contains trace amounts of soy isoflavones, the main ingredient in EQUELLE is S-equol, a naturally derived compound of the soy isoflavone daidzein.
S-equol, EQUELLE’s active ingredient, is structurally similar to estrogen and can mimic some of its actions in the body, helping to alleviate some symptoms off decreasing estrogen levels during menopause.†
Yes. EQUELLE's active ingredient, S-equol, is derived from soy germ, which is rich in soy isoflavones. Soy isoflavones share a similar structure to human estrogen, which classifies them a phytoestrogen or plant-based estrogen.EQUELLE is a supplement that contains a standardized amount of its active ingredient, S-equol, in every tablet. Many other supplements for menopause are herbal supplements. The growing conditions and potency of herbs (such as black cohosh or evening primrose oil) are varied and inconsistent, making them hard to rely on for effective, consistent results.
The active ingredient in EQUELLE, S-equol, is derived naturally through a patented process in which soy germ is fermented. Fermentation is a natural process that is commonly used to make everyday foods & beverages such as beer, wine, cheese and yogurt.
Fermented soy germ is when soy germ undergoes a process with bacteria that allows for production of key compounds. EQUELLE's active ingredient, S-equol, is produced through a patented process in which soy germ is fermented. The type of bacteria used in this process is commonly found in diet through foods that undergo fermentation processes such as cheese. It may also be found in the human gut of some individuals.
Two tablets of EQUELLE should be taken twice daily with a glass of water.
EQUELLE should be taken as long as menopause symptoms like hot flashes and muscle aches persist.
Yes, EQUELLE can be broken or crushed and taken in liquid or food.
