BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Equol is the main active intestinal metabolite of the isoflavone daidzein and is postulated to be responsible for the cardiovascular benefits of soy. Cerebral vascular effects of equol are unknown. We compared the vasorelaxant and antioxidant effects of equol and daidzein in carotid and basilar artery of normal and hypertensive rats. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH Relaxant responses to equol and daidzein were measured in the isolated carotid artery and in the basilar artery in… CONTINUE READING
