Promote Hormone Balance with DIM
DIM is a hormone-modulating compound that can help protect against cancer
For relief from menopause and andropause symptoms, restoring a healthy, youthful hormone balance with hormone replacement therapy offers the best, most comprehensive solution. However, you don’t necessarily want to stop there. There are plenty of additional steps you can take to make your hormone therapy even more effective.
For example, you can supplement with DIM. We recommend this supplement as a must-have for every man and woman who chooses to undergo hormone replacement. DIM supports hormone balance as well as cellular health. Specifically, DIM helps with:
There are actually many different forms of estrogen in the body. Some of them are stronger than others, capable of triggering undesired cell growth if not properly balanced with milder forms of estrogen. DIM’s hormone-modulating effects help to maintain favorable ratios between stronger and milder estrogen.
Protection from Xenoestrogens
Xenoestrogens are compounds that can mimic or intensify the effects of estrogen in the body. Exposure to high levels of xenoestrogens from pesticides, industrial chemicals, phthalates, BPA, and PCBs can lead to a condition called estrogen dominance, which can increase the risk of cancer. Supplementing DIM can help reduce the influence of xenoestrogens and provide protection against estrogen dominance.
In men, a certain amount of testosterone will always metabolize to DHT, a stronger form of the hormone that is linked to prostate enlargement and prostate cancer. DIM interferes with the effects of DHT to protect prostate health.
DIM helps to ensure the metabolism of estrogen through safe pathways in the body, which can help protect men and women against reproductive cancers.
How to Get DIM in Your Diet
Eating cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, Brussel sprouts, kale, cauliflower, and mustard greens is one way to get more DIM in your diet. These veggies all contain compounds that can be metabolized into DIM, such as indole-3-carbinol. However, cooking can degrade these parent compounds, making it difficult to get the DIM you need to make a difference in your body from fresh food alone. You’d probably end up with some gastrointestinal distress before you managed to eat enough of these veggies to give you a DIM boost.
Getting your DIM from a supplement is a much better option. All the research on the benefits of DIM is based on supplements. At Renew Youth, we offer a powerful DIM supplement that also contains indole-3-carbinol and other vitamins. To learn more, contact us today.
