Ingredients & DescriptionDIM is an indole phytochemical that is a natural metabolite of compounds found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage. In animal and in-vitro studies, DIM has been shown to lead to the preferential formation of estrogen metabolites that are correlated with healthy breast, endometrial, and cervical tissues. This unique property sets DIM apart from other plant nutrients. Source Naturals DIM is combined with phospholipids, vitamin E and bioperine for enhanced absorption.

One important effect of ingesting indoles is that they cause a shift in the metabolism of estrogen, animportant sex hormone in both men and women that also plays a role in bone building and neurological functioning. Two important forms of estrogen formed by competing pathways are 2-hydroxyestrone,sometimes referred to as "good estrogen," and 16a-hydroxyestrone, sometimes referred to as "bad estrogen." Many human studies over the past 20 years correlate lower levels of 16a-hydroxyestrone with breast, endometrial and cervical health. DIM has been shown to promote a lower ratio of 16a-hydroxyestrogens to 2-hydroxyestrogens, and to promote healthy colon and breast tissue in vitro. It has also been shown to protect cells from the effects of environmental chemicals, such as those generated by automobile exhaust and cigarette smoke, according to animal and in vitro studies.
