Prostate Health

A 4-week pilot study of middle-aged men with moderate to severe symptoms of BPH found that equol (6 mg taken twice per day) produced positive results after 2 weeks, reaching statistically significant reductions in BPH symptoms by the end of the study, according to International Prostate Symptom Scores (IPSS) indicators. In men with moderate BPH symptoms, 5 out of 7 IPSS criteria significantly improved after 4 weeks of equol supplementation. In those with sever symptoms, significant improvement was achieved in all 7 IPSS criteria and DHT levels decreased by 21%. Equol's results were comparable to current pharmaceutical treatments for BPH, without the numerous side-effects associated with such medications (i.e. dizziness, diarrhea, headache, nasal congestion, orthostatic hypotension (a form of low blood pressure that occurs upon standing up from a seated or lying down position), reduced libido, and erectile dysfunction).*
