DIM x 120 Capsules
- Vegetarian product
DIM® Enhanced Delivery System contains BioResponse DIM™, a unique formulation containing pure diindolylmethane, an indole. Indoles are plant compounds with health promoting properties, found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts.
Patented BioResponse DIM™ is ten times more potent than indole-3-carbinole (I3C). I3C is highly unstable and has no biologic activity until it is converted to DIM. Conversion of I3C takes place in the stomach and requires an appropriately acidic environment. In contrast to I3C, DIM is highly stable, requires no conversion in the stomach, and is the most active cruciferous phytonutrient in promoting beneficial oestrogen metabolism. DIM is often preferred by clinicians over I3C.
Diindolylmethane, or DIM® has been shown to help regulate and promote a more efficient metabolism of oestrogen, by supporting the body in metabolizing oestrogen into more of the protective 2-hydroxyesterone rather than the proliferative 16-hydroxyesterone. IndoleGard is a stable bioavailable form of DIM®, made possible through a proprietary delivery system. The formula is co-solubilized with phosphatidylcholine, and microencapsulated in starch particles.
Why take supplements to help female hormone balance?
Even the healthiest diet may not contain enough active ingredients to achieve a noticeable or measurable or desired impact on hormonal metabolism. This supplement has been shown to have a measurable beneficial impact on the metabolism of 2-hydroxy and 16-hydroxy oestrones, thereby either reducing certain health risks or improving symptoms or both.
Consume whole, fresh foods, and minimise all forms of refined sugar and carbohydrates. Drink plenty of fresh, filtered water, and get plenty of fresh air. Meditation has been found to increase immune function, as has listening to certain types of music. Laughter is an important immune support too. Where appropriate, gentle or moderate exercise is an integral part of an immune supportive programme. Get plenty of consistently good sleep.
