We all have heard it since we are kids but as we age eating well and getting enough vitamins is just as important.
What is DIM?
DIM is the absorbable form of Diindolylmethane found in several vegetables such as broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage and cauliflower. DIM is an extract of these vegetables that, as a supplement, is shown to be beneficial for hormone and immune system health.
Your body forms Diindolylmethane from plant substances contained in specific “cruciferous” vegetables. This type of vegetable is low-calorie, and abundant in folate, vitamins C, E, and K, and fiber. Cruciferous veggies cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and broccoli.
We all know that eating enough healthy food can be challenging. This supplement makes it easier to help support the powerful benefits.
Research indicates these vegetables may aid in protecting against cancer as they contain diindolylmethane and a related chemical called indole-3-carbinol. Diindolylmethane is used for helping to prevent breast, uterine, and colorectal cancer. It is also used to prevent an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hypertrophy, BPH) and treat premenstrual syndrome (PMS).” (1)
