New Soy-Based Natural S-equol Supplement Reduces Menopausal Hot Flashes, Muscle and Joint Pain in First Study Among U.S. Women
Date:10/7/2010

CHICAGO, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- A new women's health, whole soy germ-based nutritional supplement containing Natural S-equol reduced the frequency of moderate to severe hot flashes and reduced muscle and joint pain in the first study of its kind among postmenopausal U.S. women, according to peer-reviewed data presented as a poster presentation at the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) Annual Meeting.  Also, the first study to report Natural S-equol contributions to bone health and a study of Natural S-equol safety were presented at NAMS.

"These data from U.S. women expand our knowledge about and corroborate previous research in Japanese women about the benefit of a supplement containing the soy-based compound Natural S-equol to manage menopausal symptoms, including reducing the frequency of hot flashes and muscle discomfort.  This and the other Natural S-equol studies are part of the rigorous clinical collaborative program of Pharmavite LLC and Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. to develop a supplement containing Natural S-equol," said Belinda H. Jenks, Ph.D., coauthor of the U.S. women's and safety studies and director of Scientific Affairs & Nutrition Education at Pharmavite LLC.

S-equol [7-hydroxy-3-(4'-hydroxyphenyl)-chroman] is a compound resulting -- when certain bacteria are present in the digestive tract -- from the natural metabolism, or conversion, of daidzein, an isoflavone found in whole soybeans. Not everyone can produce S-equol after soy consumption, as the production depends on the types of bacteria present in the large intestine and may be influenced by the amount of soy consumed. About 50 percent of Asians and 20 to 30 percent of North Americans and Europeans, who in general consume less soy than Asians, have the ability to produce S-equol. Research indicates that Japanese women have milder menopausal symptoms in those who are S-equol producers compared to nonproducers.
