Are you looking to take preventative action on your health? Do you have a family history of cancer? If you answered yes to either of these questions, DIM may be right for you. 

What is DIM?

Diindolylmethane (DIM) is formed in the body from plant substances contained in “cruciferous” vegetables. These vegetables include:

  • Cabbage
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cauliflower
  • Broccoli

This supplement may be prescribed to enhance hormone optimization and to promote breast, uterine, cervical and prostate health. Studies over the years have concluded that DIM can help prevent cancer, reignite a lost sex drive, decrease body fat, and alleviate premenstrual and menopausal symptoms.

DIM works by restoring a healthy hormone balance to the body and adjusting the amount of estrogen. The supplement does this by organizing existing estrogen and blocking aromatase which causes testosterone to convert to estrogen. When aromatase isn’t able to convert testosterone, you will experience fewer symptoms of estrogen dominance like acne and mood swings.

If you feel like DIM might be the right supplement to add to your daily routine, set up an appointment to speak with Dr. Norton at Denver Vein. Dr. Norton will sit with you one-on-one to discuss your past and present medical history. She will then help you set a road map for optimal hormonal balance and overall health. The Denver Vein staff is standing by to help, don’t let another day pass without checking to see if DIM is right for you.
