DIM is a compound derived from the digestion of indole-3-carbinol (I3C) in cruciferous vegetables. Diindolylmethane may also play a role in cancer treatment as it decreases side effects associated with chemotherapy. DIM may also benefit other bodily systems by increasing testosterone and estrogen production. It is speculated that DIM positively modulates the endocrine system, causing hormone imbalances and deficiencies to be restored and maintained.
Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a phytochemical that is derived from indole-3-carbinol (I3C) through intestinal bacteria. DIM's unique chemical structure allows for its unique properties, one of which maintains estrogen levels in women and men. Although it has been promoted as a health food supplement, DIM is not recognized as safe by the FDA. Clinical trials of DIM have shown that it may benefit female hormone levels.
Studies show that I3C is found naturally in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower, and DIM supports these phytochemicals' main functions, especially estrogen production.
What Are Estrogens, And Why Do We Need Them?
Estrogen is a hormone released by the ovaries, and this type of estrogen is needed to regulate things such as your reproductive system, making childbearing possible. Estrogens are also important for bone health and maintaining body weight. If your body doesn't produce enough estrogens, you may feel tired and weak. The most common cause is when women reach menopause, and their ovaries stop producing enough estrogens, but genetics has other causes. So we need estrogens to function normally, and if we don't get enough of them, we will start to feel the effects. When you're young, your ovaries produce a lot of estrogens, and low levels cause health problems in the future, so it's often wise to get tested for hormone levels in young women.
There are quite a few different types of estrogen. However, we will mainly focus on the one called estradiol, which is what has natural hormone levels in the body. Estradiol is made primarily by the ovaries, and high levels of estradiol can cause fertility problems, so it's very important you don't have too much of it. Estradiol levels are also higher during pregnancy, but that doesn't mean that they're less critical after pregnancy, although they are even more important for breastfeeding women.
