DIM + I3C by Seeking Health contains 400 mg of dietary indoles, naturally occurring components of cruciferous vegetables that may help support the body's healthy estrogen metabolism processes.
DIM (diindolylmethane) is a metabolic byproduct of I3C (indole-3-carbinol), a compound found in broccoli, cabbage and other vegetables in the Brassicacae family.
These well-known indoles are combined with other related compounds to provide a broad spectrum of support for processing estrogen metabolites, such as 16-alpha hydroxy-estrone. Indole compounds may help support normal hormone metabolism and estrogen processing in favor of a healthy ratio of estrogen metabolites.
It is thought that exposure to xenoestrogens found in plastic as well as changes in hormone production during aging may contribute to unbalanced hormone levels. Indole compounds such as those in DIM + I3C may help support the body's normal hormone processing mechanisms, which are important for maintaining physiological balance.
DIM, I3C and other indoles may also help support normal detoxification processes in the liver, regular cell cycle progression, and healthy genetic processes.*
Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) readily breaks down in the presence of stomach acid into diindolylmethane (DIM). Although diindolylmethane has been claimed to be the preferred form for dietary supplementation, a wide spectrum of indoles such as those found in DIM + I3C may provide a greater range of support, more closely resembling the variety of indoles found in natural sources.
