Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a natural compound found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and kale.
In short, DIM helps you to metabolize and reduce the amount of “bad” estrogen in your body, so you can stay anabolic.
Estrogen is an important hormone for both men and women, provided it’s the right kind. In fact, 2-methoxy and 2-hydroxy estrogens have been shown to offer beneficial effects, such as strong bones, healthy cholesterol levels and libido.
The world is full of chemicals that act like estrogen. Plastics, tap water, canned foods and golf course fertilizers are just a few examples of how these toxic estrogens end up in your body. Plus, things like abdominal fat and alcohol increase the production of even more bad estrogens for your body to manage.
The net result of too many bad estrogens is a hormonal imbalance that leaves you in an unhealthy, catabolic state.
Your body is constantly seeking to maintain the right testosterone to estrogen ratio. DIM supports this effort by helping you metabolize bad estrogens (such as 16 hydroxy estrogen) into its healthier counterparts.
When balance is restored, your body can shift into an optimal state for muscle growth, high performance and fat loss.
