Support Hormone Balance with DIM*††
ARTICLE BY | Julie Hoerth
Hormones get a bad rap. We accuse them of making us feel moody. We curse them during a certain time of the month. We blame them when we crave unhealthy foods. But the truth is, hormones are essential for good health. Take estrogen, for instance.
The Importance of Hormone Balance
In women, estrogen helps the body maintain a normal temperature, regulates our menstrual cycle, strengthens the liver and cardiovascular system, and keeps our metabolism on track. It even boosts our moods. We need estrogen! The caveat being, we need estrogen in its healthiest form to feel our best.
What is DIM?
Enter diindolylmethane—DIM for short—a compound naturally found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, kale, and cauliflower. DIM helps support healthy hormone balance†† (especially estrogen) and has antioxidant properties that protect against free radicals.* But here’s the catch. To get the maximum benefit from DIM, you would have to eat almost two pounds of cruciferous vegetables daily—yikes! The best way to get this powerhouse nutrient is to look for a supplement containing a clinically studied, highly absorbable form of DIM comprised of a minimum of 25% DIM—the amount shown to keep estrogen in its beneficial form.
