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 active ingredient in Equelle is S-equol. Trace amounts of S-equol are found in animal based foods (i.e. dairy and egg products) due to the fact it’s produced by gut bacteria in animals. Richer food sources of S-equol include popular and traditional fermented tofu products in Taiwan known as chou-doufu. S-equol has also been added to some food bars in the US.
During our fermentation process, only small trace amounts of soy compounds remain in the final EQUELLE product. These amounts are significantly less than those present in a single serving of most common soy foods ( i.e. 1 oz of soybeans / 3 oz of tofu).
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.Taking EQUELLE does not influence estrogen levels. Although EQUELLE’s active ingredient, S-equol, mimics some of the same activities of estrogen, EQUELLE is hormone free‡ and clinical research shows S-equol supplementation helps with hot flash relief†.If you are experiencing hot flashes and/or muscle aches due to entering menopausal transition either naturally or through induced menopause, consider EQUELLE for hot flash and muscle ache relief.
We always recommend consulting with your healthcare professional to ensure you are making the best decision for your body and needs as this is a deeply personal issue. However, EQUELLE has been clinically studied and shown to be safe. In fact, a report for the American Institute for Cancer Research notes that a moderate amount of soy (1 to 2 servings a day) is considered safe for survivors and may even be beneficial. Only trace amounts of soy compounds remain in the final EQUELLE product. These amounts are significantly less than those present in a single serving of most common soy foods ( i.e. 1 oz of soybeans / 3 oz of tofu).
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.
Fermented soy germ is when soy germ undergoes a process with bacteria that allows for production of key compounds. 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.
