Though, scientists don't know which intestinal bacteria is responsible for converting soy into EQUOL. But a colon cleanse is definitely the 1st step. And supplemeting with probiotics is good for you anyway. http://jn.nutrition.org/cgi/content/abstract/134/8/1998
If nothing else, you are probably a producer of O-desmethylangolensin (O-DMA). 80%–90% of people can produce O-DMA from soy. Increased O-DMA production may be responsible for decreased risk of breast & prostate cancer.
