What Are the Health Benefits of Diindolylmethane (DIM)?

Read Transcript

DIM actually stands for Diindolylmethane, and you want to take it, find it in the bottle form called DIM Complex, and the reason for taking DIM is that it has a natural way of helping your hormones balance, more specifically oestrogen. So it helps to increase the good oestrogen, and decrease the bad oestrogen, so there's a potential benefit in hormone-based cancers.

We're waiting to hear the final study results from NIH, and some of the larger academic studies regarding that part of the health benefits of DIM. The other part is that it has great anti-inflammatory benefits, so it really might help with patients with diseases like leaky gut, or rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, etc.

So that's something that is really great about DIM, having those dual health benefits. DIM is also really great because it naturally balances hormones, that it helps to potentially help patients with PMS symptoms like with cramps and also with menopause symptoms like hot flashes.

Again, that's coming from the role of the DIM being able to naturally balance hormones a little better.
