Soy-based Natural S-equol and SE5-OH Supplement Containing Natural S-equol Did Not Increase Risk of Estrogen Sensitive Breast Cancer
Consuming the soy germ-based compound Natural S-equol and the supplement SE5-OH containing Natural S-equol did not increase the risk of estrogen-sensitive breast cancer, according to a study in the September issue of the peer-reviewed journal Food and Chemical Toxicology. SE5-OH containing Natural S-equol reduced menopause symptoms in postmenopausal women in previously reported controlled trials in the United States and in Japan.
