Your mother always said “Eat your vegetables”. Well DIM is made from your cruciferous vegetables like Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Brussel sprouts. Studies have shown that DIM helps metabolize Estrogen down what is called the 2-Hydroxyestrone pathway which is the preferred route as opposed to the 4 and the 16 pathway. This is understood to be cancer protective. DIM also helps to keep your Testosterone free and available, and helps optimize your hormone therapy. DIM is a mild aromatase inhibitor, and it helps produce a bit of LH to keep your natural hormone production going. All around, DIM is a useful supplement where patients can feel the difference when taking it.
