Diindolylmethane (DIM) is derived from cruciferous vegetables and may aid in the reduction of harmful oestrogen metabolites. DIM can have positive effects on oestrogen metabolism and may be able to keep the body in a state of oestrogen balance by preventing either increases or decreases in oestrogen. DIM may help inhibit the aromatase enzyme and in turn may aid in preventing the conversion of testosterone into oestrogen (In particular, aromatase is responsible for the aromatisation of androgens into oestrogens) and may act upon the undesirable forms of oestrogen and convert them into less potentially harmful forms. This conversion may reduce the overall effects of oestrogen and oestrogen dominance in the body.
Typical oestrogen dominance symptoms include:
Men: Prostate issues, weight gain, low libido/erectile dysfunction, water retention, Gynecomastia (‘man boobs’), impotency, reduced muscle development
Women: Fibrocystic breasts, water retention (possibly specific to the legs/ankles), mood swings, irritability, insomnia, irregular periods, low thyroid symptoms
