Beyond simple vitamins and minerals, vegetables provide us with beneficial compounds called phytochemicals. Indole-3-Carbinol from NOW is a concentrated, potent source of a valuable phytochemical. Indole-3-Carbinol, or I3C, is naturally found in vegetables like cabbage and broccoli. It's a powerful antioxidant and may protect cells and DNA against chemical damage.
I3C is especially valuable in balancing hormone levels, helping cells grow and repair at normal rates. Its hormone supporting function is currently being studied for its potential in cancer prevention. This supplement also contains Flax seed extract, providing additional antioxidants and phytochemicals. Flax lignans also help maintain hormone levels, which supports healthy function of reproductive organs, as well as aiding skin and bone health and preventing hair loss.
Indole-3-Carbinol Description from Now
Cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, etc.) are uniquely abundant in a sulfur-containing compound called Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C). In the acidic stomach environment, I3C is readily converted into DIM (diindolemethane) plus a full spectrum of additional compounds shown to neutralize free radicals and promote proper detoxification. Studies have shown that I3C supplementation can help maintain the health of the breast and other reproductive organs. Until recently, because of the typical instability of I3C, isolated DIM was the best substitute available, but NOW Indole-3-Carbinol packaging ensures stability and potency during its shelf life.
