Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a compound that the body creates when you digest cruciferous vegetables (like broccoli or brussel sprouts)(1). DIM is thought to affect estrogen levels in the body, and DIM supplements are used to control estrogen to control hormone conditions. In terms of body building, high levels of estrogen can lead to trouble loosing weight, so DIM may be able to help control estrogen and allow weight loss to happen normally.
BENEFITS OF DIM SUPPLEMENTS
Studies have linked an imbalance of estrogen in men and women to increased risk of weight gain. Maintaining the correct levels of estrogen in the body is essential for the proper functioning of the hormones in your body, so controlling estrogen may aid weight loss. DIM stimulates production of the less potent form of estrogen, 2-hydroxyestrone. The more potent form of estrogen (16 alpha-hydroxyestrone) has been linked to increased risk of certain types of cancer. By balancing the two types of estrogen in the body, DIM may have some anti cancer effects. DIM may also protect against prostate issues such as enlargement and cancer.
FOOD SOURCES OF DIM
DIM can be found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, kale, cauliflower, radish, turnips and brussel sprouts. Obviously, getting more cruciferous vegetables into your diet is a must, but DIM supplements can help to add to an already good diet.
