This article doesn't actually say what Equol is, just that it's metabolized from Daidzein. DaveTheRed 09:26, 14 Mar 2005 (UTC)

As to be read in the Dihydrotestosterone article, deficiency of DHT is related to sexual and non-sexual problems, such as Alzheimer. So Equol isn't that perfectly great. Thanks, --Abdull 20:13, 12 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Merge suggestion[edit]

The article S-equol should be merged into this article because they both cover the same topic. When they are merged, attention should be paid to focus the article more on the studies that are WP:MEDRS-compliant, rather than on preliminary studies, speculations, etc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:44, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

If merging equol and s-equol listings, care should be taken to enure that the differences between S-Equol, R-Equol and raceme are kept clear. S-equol is naturally occuring in the gut, where as R-equol and the raceme are the result of chemical synthesis. R & S have different properties and actions when consumed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wiki1Claire (talkcontribs) 03:10, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

Is the Equol human test in research use only, or can consumers buy the test (urine, fecal or whatever lab test)?[edit] (talk) 17:14, 8 August 2017 (UTC)
