The Top 3 Benefits of Diindolylmethane (DIM)
At Arthur Andrew Medical, we only use high-quality and scientifically proven ingredients in our products. Diindolylmethane, or DIM, is one such ingredient.
DIM is a phytochemical found in cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage, and brussels sprouts. DIM has been shown to have many positive health benefits—including boosting your immune system and potentially helping prevent cancer.
Based on extensive research, here are the top 3 benefits of DIM that you as a consumer should know.
1. DIM can stop cancer cells
Multiple studies show that DIM may have the ability to promote the growth of healthy cells and counter the formation of cancerous cells. In fact, the Linus Pauling Institute reported that DIM could potentially slow the growth of cancer cells by stimulating a process that leads to the death of the affected cells.
Additionally, results from studies conducted in vitro showed that DIM displayed anti-cancer activities in cancer cells, including prostate, breast, pancreatic, and leukemic cells. These results, published in the Journal of Biomedical Research, are promising indicators that DIM can slow or stop the growth of cancer cells.
2. DIM boosts your immune system
Experts conducting research at the University of California at Berkeley reported that DIM can stimulate the immune system in order to help it destroy viruses and bacteria. DIM has also been shown to increase the production of enzymes that help your body eliminate toxins and disease-causing compounds. With the help of DIM, the immune system is better equipped to keep you healthy and free of toxic, disease-causing molecules.
3. DIM normalizes hormone levels
DIM has been shown to normalize the levels of hormones within the body, including estrogen. Because an excess amount of estrogen can cause hormonal imbalance symptoms, countering this excessive amount of estrogen is important to a woman’s health. One study published in Nutrition and Cancer had post-menopausal women with a history of breast cancer consume a DIM supplement for 30 days, resulting in positive changes to their estrogen metabolism.
How Arthur Andrew Medical uses DIM
To get the full benefits of DIM, you’d have to consume two pounds of cruciferous vegetables per day—which can be difficult, if not impossible, for many people. That’s why supplements containing DIM are important. At Arthur Andrew Medical, we use DIM to enhance the effectiveness of our product Fibrovera.
Fibrovera is formulated with an all-natural blend of botanicals and enzymes designed to address hormone irregularities. DIM increases the effectiveness of Fibrovera by supporting a healthy metabolism of estrogen. This eliminates the phenomenon of estrogen dominance, a prime contributor to the hormonal imbalance symptoms that many women feel.
With the help of DIM, along with its other active ingredients, Fibrovera is able to deliver relief from symptoms including fatigue, mood swings, irregular periods, and stomach pains. This is just one of the many examples of how our commitment to using cutting edge ingredients delivers a better experience to our consumers.
