Estrogen dominance is a frequent health concern for both men and women. An overabundance of estrogen is associated with a variety of health concerns in men and women such as weight gainespecially belly fat, hot flashes, uncomfortable menopausal symptoms, vaginal dryness and reduced sexual desire, bloating and water retention, occasionally irregular or skipped menstrual cycles, poor sexual performance, and breast tenderness just to name a few.
However, a nutrient called di-indole methane (DIM) has been shown to help reduce the symptoms of estrogen dominance without the side effects associated with other commonly recommended products. Di-indole methane (DIM) is a natural plant nutrient found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and cabbage.
As DIM balances the good estrogen metabolites, it simultaneously regulates the levels of bad estrogen metabolites, which include the 16-hydroxy estrogen. The bad estrogen metabolites are influenced by obesity and exposure to many commercial and household chemicals.
DIM promotes balanced estrogen metabolism in a direction favoring production of healthy estrogen metabolites, resulting in increased production of testosterone and progesterone. And in doing so, DIM helps eliminate the concern of estrogen dominance that plagues both women and men.
