The use of Indole-3-carbinol and its metabolite Diindolylmethane has come into use due to the historical aspects of diets high in cruciferous I3C health.
For breast and prostate health.
*EstroDIM is intended for those wanting the benefit of both preformed DIM as well as the precursor I3C for estrogen modulation and breast and prostate health. Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) is a naturally occurring compound within numerous cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage etc.). After ingestion I3C converts to several different metabolites, one of which is diindolylmethane (DIM). Both of these compounds, as well as other I3C metabolites, have been shown to cause metabolic shifts and cellular activities that inhibit carcinogenesis. General uses include improved phase I and phase II detoxification and antioxidant support
Why These Natural Ingredients?
* Human clinical trials show an improvement in 2/16 hydroxy-estrone ratios in women taking I3C, demonstrating its value in helping lower risk in these women.
I3C is considered one of the main active ingredients accounting for the health benefits found in cruciferous vegetables. I3C, and many of its metabolites including DIM, have been investigated with in vitro, animal and human studies.
