I understand that part, but that means both fin and equol technically drop the DHT serum numbers drastically. The end point is the same. Less DHT.
So ive yet to hear a scientific explaination as to why there would be such a big difference in sides. People are acting as if equol has no sides.
The only explaination ive seen is that 30% of people are producers, and they are not impotent because of dropped DHT. But maybe those people have other mechanisms to compensate for equol production...that we dont, because we dont produce it.
Would love someone to prove me wrong, because im very curious about it...
