Gentleman we need to keep our estrogen levels in check.
Side Note: Beer = Estrogen…. Food For Thought... Diindolylmethane, or DIM, is a compound that is formed in your body during the digestion of foods that contain the nutrient indole-3-carbinol. Indole-3-carbinol is found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. Eating these foods, therefore, provides your body with DIM. Diindolylmethane is also sold in supplemental form and is thought to provide a variety of health-promoting benefits
DIM: Diindolylmethane and Estrogen
The exact mechanism of action is unknown, but doctors Michael Zeligs and Scott Connelly state in their book, “All About DIM,” that some of the benefits are likely derived from the fact that DIM helps to balance the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone. They explain that when estrogen is broken down in your body, it can either form beneficial or harmful estrogen metabolites. Diindolylmethane also appears to promote a healthy balance of testosterone in the body.
Although DIM is produced in your body when you consume cruciferous vegetables, you would have to eat a very large amount of raw vegetables every day to get the purported benefits of DIM.
Indole-3-carbinol, also called I3C, is a resulting compound that comes from eating vegetables such as Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, and kale. It is known to stimulate detoxifying enzymes in the gut and liver
