Equelle Clinically Shown to Ease Menopause Symptoms

Tuesday Nov 21, 2017

INNATE Response, a brand of FoodState, manufacturer of naturally-inspired supplements that support and strengthen the body's innate healing response, announced the United States launch of Equelle, a non-hormonal dietary supplement clinically shown to help ease the symptoms commonly experienced during menopause, such as hot flashes and muscle discomfort. The supplement will be available to integrative healthcare professionals exclusively through Emerson Ecologics beginning October 30, 2017.

"Menopause is a normal, transitionary period of life that all women will eventually experience," said Tieraona Low Dog, M.D., an integrative medical doctor and expert in integrative medicine, women's health, herbal medicine and dietary supplements. "In the United States alone, there are 53 million women between the menopause ages of 40 to 64, and increasingly, these women want and use complementary therapies to manage symptoms of menopause. I'm delighted that clinicians now have the opportunity to recommend Equelle as a part of a total approach in the management of menopause."

The active ingredient in Equelle is S-equol, a metabolite of the soy isoflavone daidzein, which can be naturally produced in the intestinal tract. Clinical studies have shown that incorporating the regular use of a S-equol supplement like Equelle can ease menopausal symptoms in as few as four weeks, with optimal results shown after eight to 12 weeks of consistent use.

Since only 20 to 30 percent of women in the U.S. have the ability to naturally produce S-equol in their bodies, those seeking to benefit from S-equol to manage menopausal symptoms may find supplementation essential.

Equelle is the product of fermentation of whole, non-GMO soy germ using a patented and proprietary process by the Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. The process results in the conversion of the daidzein to S-equol. Equelle tablets, created under current Good Manufacturing Practices, are clear coated and free of gluten, dairy, magnesium stearate and talc. Suggested patient use is two Equelle tablets daily, one tablet taken in the morning and one tablet at night, which provide the standardized dose of 10 mg of S-equol.

Interested patients should ask their healthcare practitioner about how Equelle can help with their menopause symptoms.
