First, equol binds directly to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) to prevent it from binding to receptor sites in the prostate. Equol’s unique DHT binding ability makes it the only known molecule that protects the prostate without triggering the side effects that can be caused by enzyme-blocking products. It:
- Supports healthy prostate function and urinary flow without side effects
- Helps improve sleep duration
- Supports healthy prostate cell replication

The DHT Issue
DHT, created from the combination of the hormone Testosterone and the enzyme 5-Alpha Reductase, occurs naturally within the body. Once formed, it binds with receptor sites along the prostate and encourages the prostate to grow. This is a natural process that occurs in all men. Unfortunately, continued prostate growth can restrict the healthy flow of urine from the bladder.
Common pharmaceuticals address this issue with an enzyme blocker targeting the 5-Alpha Reductase enzyme. This effectively prevents the formation of DHT within the body promotes healthy prostate function.
Unfortunately, 5-Alpha Reductase naturally binds with other substances within the body to promote its healthy function. Enzyme blockers prevent 5-Alpha reductase from binding with Testosterone and everything else, resulting in adverse side effects.
Rather than targeting the 5-Alpha Reductase enzyme, Equolibrium targets DHT. Equol is the only known molecule that can bind directly to DHT. As such, it stops DHT from binding with the prostate and encourages healthy prostate function
Because Equol binds directly with DHT, the 5-Alpha Reductase enzyme is free to bind with other substances. Equolibrium naturally supports healthy prostate function without causing side effects.
