Bodycore Dimples - 60 tabs
DIM (Diindolylmethane) is a natural compund found in cruciferous vegetables that helps your body properly metabolize estrogen. Estrogen and testosterone imbalance can be linked to numerous health issues. Keeping estrogen levels at a healthy level in relation to other hormones is key for both men and women of all ages. Uterine, cervical, breast and prostate health all rely on proper estrogen metabolism to stay healthy.
DIM stands for di-indolylmethane. Don’t be put off by the big chemical sounding name; it is a natural plant ingredient found in cruciferous vegetables. These are vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage, and bok choy. By making DIM as a supplement it relieves the need to consume over 3 pounds of them each day to get to the required level of DIM.
WHY THE FUSS OVER DIM?
Firstly, over ten years ago researchers discovered that DIM balanced out oestrogen levels in both men and women. Over the last forty years for reasons beyond this discussion, oestrogen has become more dominant in females and even in males. There are “good” and “not so good” forms of oestrogen. The “not so good” oestrogen have been shown to cause weight gain (waist, thighs, hips), moodiness, and breast pain, whereas the “good” oestrogen does the opposite and can act as a type of antioxidant. Women in their mid-thirties to menopause may want to consider this product.
Secondly studies have shown that DIM inhibits aromatase - an enzyme that has been implicated as one of the triggers in prostate, breast, ovarian, endometrial and uterine cancers. And while it is definitely not being touted as a cure and a preventative, further research in this area in the future should turn up some interesting developments.
