Everyone knows the health benefits of eating cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, kale, and cauliflower.

However, because it is hard to get enough DIM from your diet, it is also available in supplement form. DIM is derived from cruciferous vegetables like Broccoli.
Weight loss – Most women struggling with seemingly impossible weight loss is due to imbalanced estrogen. Taking DIM, together with low-calorie calorie diet aand exercise can make weight loss easier.
Enlarged prostate-DIM supplements may safeguard against prostate enlargement and prostate cancer. In fact, it may help combat prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN), a condition that's characterized by prostate cell growth and considered to be a precursor to prostate cancer. Early research suggest that taking-DIM for 28 days lowers prostate-specific antigen(PSA) levels in men with prostate cancer.

Balances estrogen hormone levels. – DIM normalizes estrogen levels most women suffer from due to foods and environmental toxins. DIM also reverses a condition called estrogen dominance. – When the body produces little or no progesterone hormone to counter the effects of estrogen, taking DIM helps in managing estrogen dominance.
While DIM can be an effective supplement for some, it doesn’t work as well alone. In fact, you can feel worse after taking it if you’re taking it by itself. DIM needs the help of a couple of other nutrients to help it completely flush out the extra estrogen. Here’s what’s actually happening…
The way DIM works is through supporting only Phase I of liver detoxification. However, complete estrogen metabolism in the body requires support of both Phase 1 and Phase 2 liver detoxification pathways.
Liver detoxification is made up of two phases:
- Phase I is all about oxidation (basically, burning up toxins, used up estrogens, etc., with oxygen and enzymes).
- Phase II is conjugation (combining the oxidized toxins and used up hormones with other substances to make them less dangerous).
Phase II also makes the toxins water soluble, preparing them to be eliminated from the body through the bile or urine.
If DIM is used alone, it will help with Phase I liver detoxification, so the toxins and hormones will be oxidized (broken down) and made ready to be eliminated. However, without an active Phase II pathway, these oxidized toxins will get recirculated in the body, rather than being eliminated.
This means that DIM only partially helps to remove metabolized estrogen from the body. It can also make you feel worse, because the toxins, used up hormones (estrogen), bile acids, get sent back through your body, creating inflammation and more imbalance.
That’s why DIM needs to be combined with calcium D-glucarate
Improves fertility. – Hormonal imbalance is one of the causes of infertility. Balanced estrogen levels are a perfect way to increase chances of conceiving where hormonal imbalance is the cause.
Polycystic ovarian cysts PCOS. – Women with Polycystic ovarian cysts deal with a myriad of estrogen and testosterone related issues, DIM can help to normalize these hormones.

Testosterone Levels IN PCOS – This is common in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome PCOS in women, PCOS Can cause facial hair growth, depression, acne and infertility. DIM blocks the effects of testosterone. Higher doses (greater than 100mg) of isolated pure DIM can saturate tissues and block androgen (e.g. testosterone and dihydrotestosterone) receptors and inhibit the protein synthesis induced by the anabolic effects of androgens.
May prevent breast cancer – 80% of breast cancers are caused by high levels of bad estrogen. This type of breast cancer is called estrogen receptor (ER) breast cancer.
Shrinks Uterine Fibroids – Fibroids thrive and grow when bad estrogen levels are high. Fibroids feed on higher than normal estrogen levels. DIM helps decrease the “bad” estrogen metabolites, many women have reported shrinking their fibroids using a combination of DIM and lifestyle changes!
Menopause symptoms – During fertility years, our body produces a type of estrogen called estriol (the good estrogen). During menopause, the body produces the bad type (the one that we said causes fibroids, cancers, etc.) called ESTRONE. Taking DIM helps lower the bad estrogen. Taking DIM can help with menopause symptoms like weight gain, hot flashes, mood swings, etc.
Endometriosis-Taking DIM with another supplement called milk thistle has been shown to reduce the severity of endometriosis.
Ovarian Cysts- Over producing ovaries leading to high levels of estrogen in the blood. The biggest culprit is ovarian cysts – such a PCOS or functional cysts (functional cyst produces estrogen – something not all cyst do). In this case the ovarian cysts manufacture estrogen which can suppress FHS and stop ovulation. DIM could help normalize estrogen levels, while allowing the body to eliminate excess estrogen from its response to the drugs.
