How Equolibrium Supports Healthy Prostate Function and Cell Replication

April 1 2014 | Men's Health

Last week we introduced our newest product, "Equolibrium." Exclusive to Nature’s Sunshine, Equolibrium harnesses the power of equol, a powerful antioxidant that supports the prostate through a multi-faceted approach.

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


Below is a graphic and videos to help explain how Equolibrium works:

Check out the video explaining the science behind Equol:

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.

Combating DHT

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.

Men’s Health Week: June 11–17

June 12 2012 | Weekly Specials | Men's Health

Happy Men’s Health Week! Nature’s Sunshine invites you to take advantage of our June specials. Through June 15, we offer terrific savings on two products designed to support prostate health—Men’s Formula with Lycopene and Saw Palmetto. Buy 9, Get 3 FREE; or Buy 4, Get 1 FREE; or save $2 on each bottle.

Men face unique health challenges and need to pay particular attention to the prostate gland, especially with age. Scientific research suggests that several herbs can help support men’s health, including saw palmetto, stinging nettle and African plum tree, or pygeum bark. Saw Palmetto is the most studied and best understood of those herbs, and research shows that it provides numerous health benefits for the prostate gland. Dr. William Keller explores some of this research in an article that he wrote about men’s health. You can find it on this site under Library after logging in.

Men’s Formula with Lycopene provides nutritional support for the prostate gland. It is specially formulated for men over 40 with saw palmetto, pumpkin seeds, pygeum bark, gotu kola, stinging nettle, as well as the antioxidant lycopene, which has been shown to have a supportive affect on prostate gland function.

Saw Palmetto has been used for ages to support glandular tissue, particularly the prostate gland. It supports hormone balance and contains a compound used by the body to produce cortisone, an adrenal hormone that helps regulate the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, sodium, potassium and proteins.
