Olympian Labs DIM Diindolylmethane Description
Diindolylmethane (DIM) is an indole plant nutrient found in cruciferous vegetables and has distinct hormonal benefits. DIM contributes to a better metabolism by working with your own hormones and adjusting their action to avoid hormonal imbalance. DIM helps eliminate active estrogens from the male body by promoting their conversion into the "good" metabolites. These metabolites then free up testosterone by bumping it off the testosterone-binding proteins. The end result is a healthier balance of testosterone to estrogen and more free (unbound) testosterone circulating in the body. In scientific studies, high levels of testosterone and low levels of estrogen have been linked to lean body mass, an efficient fat-burning metabolism, and low abdominal obesity.
DIM may stimulate more efficient estrogen metabolism. Supplementing the diet the DIM increases the specific aerobic metabolism for estrogen, multiplying the change for estrogen to be broken down into its beneficial or "good" estrogen metabolites. By promoting healthy estrogen metabolism, DIM adjusts the balance of estradiol to its "good" metabolites. This may also result in a more desirable action from testosterone. Testosterone supports energy and mood and helps to sustain interest in sex in both men and women. When supplemental DIM is taken along with a program of regular exercise, it may help estrogen and testosterone contribute to good physical conditioning.
DIM appears to support the activity of specific enzymes that improve estrogen metabolism in both men and women. Scientific research shows that DIM increases the level of "good" estrogens (2-hydroxyestrogen) while reducing the level of "bad" estrogens (16-hydroxyestrogen). Underproduction of 2-hydroxyestrogen in women has been linked to PMS, mid-life obesity, painful menstruation, recurrent breast pain, cervical dysplasia, fibroid tumors, as well as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. In men, obesity and chronic inflammation have been lined to underproduction of 2-hydroxyestrogen.
Both men and women may get huge benefits from DIM in terms of free testosterone, estrogen balance, and physical conditioning.
