Support for Women 40 and Over During and After the Menopausal Transition

The discomfort many women 40 and over experience during menopause is related to a drop in the female hormone estrogen. EQUELLE contains equol, an essential ingredient derived from soybeans which functions very similarly to estrogen, helping to ease the changes experienced by women during this period.

EQUELLE — an evolved form of soy isoflavones

Soy isoflavones are generally known to bring many health benefits to women. Recent research has found that one of the keys to these benefits are the female hormone-like effects of equol, a product of the metabolism by intestinal bacterial of daidzein, one of the components found in soy isoflavones. Through its research into equol, Otsuka Pharmaceutical became the first in the world to identify lactic acid bacteria that could be used in food products, out of those intestinal bacteria that work to produce equol. The Company then went on to rigorously verify safety and efficacy and to develop EQUELLE as an equol-containing supplement backed by the kind of scientific evidence that only a pharmaceutical company can produce. EQUELLE is a new soy-based product that helps women maintain and enhance their health, helping them lead a sparkling life during and after the menopausal transition.
