WHAT IS IT?
Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a phytonutrient (plant nutrient) found in cruciferous vegetables.
These include cabbage, broccoli, bok choy, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale, kohlrabi, mustard, rutabaga, and turnip. These plants have been cultivated for thousands of years and were initially used for their medicinal benefits.
It can also be formed in the body under acidic conditions (like the stomach) from a precursor substance also found in cruciferous veggies called Indole 3-Carbinol (I3C).
Estroblock is a popular DIM supplement – and is the one I recommend because it has been tested by many individuals and found to be the highest quality, the most absorbable and the most effective.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
DIM helps promote healthier estrogen metabolism.
When estrogen is metabolized, it turns out that the liver can metabolize estrogen through 2 different pathways. A healthy liver with efficient estrogen metabolization will mostly convert the estrogen into beneficial estrogen metabolites.
These good metabolites are intentionally released back into the blood, and account for many of the benefits of estrogen, including the prevention of heart disease and strong, healthy bones. They also have the power to get rid of damaged or cancerous cells throughout the body.
However, the second metabolic pathway, creates bad estrogen metabolites that result in estrogen dominance and are linked to many health problems, most notably oxidation, DNA damage, cancer, and as we know, hormonal acne.
DIM is not an estrogen or a hormone but like estrogen, DIM can be metabolized only by a special class of enzymes. It turns out that DIM, when consumed in food or in absorbable formulations, stimulates its own metabolism. This special metabolic pathway for DIM, and the enzymes involved, precisely overlap with the pathway needed for healthy estrogen metabolism.
Put another way, having DIM in your system increases healthy estrogen metabolism because it activates the enzymes and opens up the metabolic pathway necessary for estrogen to be converted into the good metabolites.
Stated even more simply, supplementing the diet with DIM specifically promotes beneficial estrogen metabolism and helps restore a healthy hormonal balance.
If estrogen is not getting metabolized properly, it can lead to estrogen excess, which unbalances the hormones. If the levels of estrogen get unnaturally high in the body, then all of our other hormones will try to compensate to bring the proper hormone ratios about again.
This means androgens go up. And androgens are what cause all of the mayhem on our skin that leads to acne, like sebum overproduction, sticky sebum, sticky dead skin cells, and increased inflammation.
So if we get our estrogen levels down, androgen levels go down, and acne goes down!
Use one capsule with food, two times daily as directed by physician. For weight management take two capsules, twice daily with a snack, between meals.
