DIM Plus is a patented, highly-absorbable form of the amazing compound di-indolemethane, more commonly known by its abbreviation, DIM. DIM is a nutrient extracted from certain vegetables like broccoli and cabbage, but that's not what's exciting about it.As you may be aware, an increasing amount of attention is being given to the harmful role estrogens (and estrogen-mimicking compounds) play in human health, both in men and women. In men, excess estrogen activity interferes with healthy testosterone activity and promotes unhealthy changes in prostate health. In women, excess estrogens can make for a miserable menstrual cycle and great difficulty losing weight. Besides actual hormonal estrogens produced by the body, estrogens are present in some foods like dairy, and a great many environmental toxins such as plastic residues also have powerful estrogenic properties.
Estrogen hormones and estrogenic environmental toxins all share the same detoxification pathway in the liver. The exciting thing about DIM is that its able to affect the liver enzymes responsible for the detoxification of estrogens and estrogenic toxins in a way that increase their rate of elimination. So DIM is one of the most legitimate anti-estrogen supplements available, but since it's not absorbed well, use a the patented DIM Plus from Nature's Way which is an absorption-enhanced DIM preparation.
DIM-Plus Description from Nature's Way
DIM-plus contains diindolylmethane, a phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and kale.
Diindolylmethane has unique benefits that support the activity of enzymes that improve estrogen metabolism.
Research shows diindolylmethane increases the levels of "favorable" estrogens (2-hydroxyestrogen) while reducing the level of "less favorable" estrogens (16-hydorxyestrogen).
