Dr Mercola Talks about Sulforaphane and Diindolylmethane (DIM)

In this article, Dr Mercola Talks about Sulforaphane and Diindolylmethane (DIM) one of the active ingredients in the cruciferous vegetable powder found in EstroBlock.

The 'Other' Broccoli Pill: Diindolylmethane (DIM)

Another notable phytochemical in broccoli is diindolylmethane, or DIM. Your body produces DIM when it breaks down cruciferous vegetables. Like many other broccoli compounds, DIM has shown multiple potential benefits, including boosting your immune system and helping to prevent or treat cancer. As SF Gate reported:12

"The compound causes normal cells to increase their production of enzymes that help your body eliminate toxins and potential carcinogenic compounds, potentially lowering your risk of disease.

The [Linus Pauling] Institute also says that DIM might stop growth of cancer cells by stimulating them to undergo a process that leads to their death. It may also inhibit cancer cells from invading normal tissue and could halt the growth of new blood vessels needed by cancerous tumors.

In addition, experts at the University of California at Berkeley report that DIM stimulates your immune system to destroy bacteria and viruses, and to detect and destroy malignant cells."

The research on DIM is promising. One study of postmenopausal women with a history of breast cancer found taking a DIM supplement for 30 days resulted in changes in estrogen metabolism that suggest a decreased risk of cancer recurrence.13 Further, as noted in the Journal of Biomedical Research:14

"In vitro studies have found that DIM has anti-proliferative and anti-cancer activities in various cancer cells including prostate, breast, endometrial, colorectal and pancreatic cancers, and leukemic cells."

Is it possible to get DIM via your diet? Yes, as mentioned DIM is found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts. However, you'd need to eat a lot of them – at least two pounds a day – to get the recommended amount.15

"However, you'd need to eat a lot of them – at least two pounds a day", one of the reasons EstroBlock is such a valuable product, it is so concentrated it is a really convenient way to supplement high levels of this valuable organic compound.
