Benefits of Taking a DIM Supplement

Benefits of Taking a DIM Supplement

Diindolylmethane, or DIM, is a phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, kale, brussel sprouts, and many more. Consuming these types of vegetables is extremely beneficial to your health because they do contain DIM. However, all too often these vegetables are left in the bag, or on the table because of their not so inviting taste. On the other hand some people may like the taste of them, but choose not to eat them because of stomach upset in the form of gas or bloating. For those of us who don't eat our recommended daily dose of cruciferous vegetables, for whatever reason, we must supplement to ensure we get this extremely valuable nutrient in our bodies.

The health benefits offered by DIM are so great, that it has left scientists astounded. What sets DIM apart from other great herbs, or vitamins, is the fact that basically every claim that has been made by a DIM supporter has been back up by science. It is not everyday that a nutrient has such potent properties that everyone... scientists, foundations, and doctors, jump on board to endorse it! The National Cancer Institute has even issued a statement about DIM's potent potential cancer fighting properties.

So, what exactly does DIM have to offer?

First of all DIM is classified as an anti-cancer nutrient. What this means is that the consumption of DIM, or vegetables containing DIM, can help prevent the development of certain cancers. DIM has also been proven to destroy and prevent the mutation of cancer cells. Remember, all of this has been proven in a laboratory, these are not random claims! The way that DIM helps prevent breast, and prostate cancer, is by promoting a balance of good vs. bad estrogen in the body. As the body ages, it naturally changes hormone levels, which in turn makes middle aged individuals more susceptible to these certain cancers. The consumption of DIM helps to restore a "younger" hormonal balance, i.e. lower the bad estrogen, and raising the good both men and women!

Speaking of restoring a healthy hormonal balance, DIM has also been proven to alleviate common PMS symptoms, and even help regulate a woman's cycle. There have been claims that DIM is a anti-aging nutrient and although this claim has yet to be proven in a laboratory, the idea comes from the fact that the supplement restores a healthy, younger hormonal balance within the body. Which makes weight loss a lot easier, and this in turn makes the individual feel better inside and out.

DIM has so very much to offer that it is impossible to find a reason to not take it. Standing back and looking at the non-direct effects that DIM can have on your body and health is enormous! Not only has it been proven to restore a healthy hormonal balance within the body to prevent cancer, but high levels of the bad estrogen have been linked to SEVERAL serious medical conditions. If you restore a healthy hormonal balance, and lower the bad estrogen this would alleviate many of these conditions! It is in this author's opinion that DIM is just as important as basic food and water, and should be taken by everyone!
