Behind the initials DIM lies a powerful, natural metabolite called 3,3′-Diindolylmethane. This compound is one of the active principles responsible for the benefits of cruciferous vegetables such as Brussels sprouts, broccoli and kale. These crucifers share a number of common features including the ability to reduce estrogen levels and protect against certain hormone-dependent cancers. Widely-studied, the anti-estrogen properties and anti-cancer potential of cruciferous vegetables have been attributed to active principles such as DIM and its precursor I3C (indole-3-carbinol).
The result of digesting I3C, DIM is a natural, active metabolite involved in balancing hormone levels. More specifically, it influences the metabolism of estrogens - steroid hormones secreted by the ovaries, adrenal cortex, testicles and placenta. Present in both women and men, these hormones play different roles within the body. However, despite their importance, they can be present at excessive levels in the body and cause a number of problems.
Hormone imbalance can cause fatigue, migraines, muscle and joint pain, mood swings, reduced libido, irregular and painful periods, as well as certain prostate problems. Excessive estrogen can also promote the accumulation of fat cells, particularly on the stomach and thighs. Scientists are interested in DIM for its ability to prevent these harmful effects, particularly its anti-estrogen properties which help naturally reduce estrogen levels in men and women.
Excess levels of estrogen can promote the development of several types of cancer including breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men.
The benefits of 3,3′-Diindolylmethane are now available to buy in the form of vegetarian capsules. Ideal for both women and men who wish to lower their estrogen levels naturally, this dietary supplement provides 100mg of DIM per capsule and is offered at a daily recommended dose of 1-2 capsules for women and 3-4 capsules for men. This dose can be adapted according to individual needs and the advice of your therapist. Along with DIM, the protective effects of other active principles found in cruciferous vegetables, are also available to buy in supplement form, including glucosinolates, and in particular the anti-cancer potential of sulforaphane glucosinolate.
