DIM – Diindolylmethane: Good for boobs and man-boobs

Studies have shown that DIM increases the production of 2-hydroxy estrogen by 75% and decreases the production of 16-hydroxy estrone by 50%.  This action creates the proper balance of estrogen to estrone so needed to halt cancer and prevent its recurrence.

Scientists found low doses of DIM induced production of pro-apoptotic protein in prostate cancer cells.   (killing of cancer cells) -2008 edition of Pharmaceutical Research

DIM was found to significantly decrease the release of nitric oxide, estradiol, tumor necrosis factor alpha, inerleukin-1-beta.  They concluded that DIM inhibits the release of pro-inflammatory mediators in macrophages.  – January 2008 Journal of Nutrition

DIM works the same wonder in men as it does women, by blocking some of the conversion of testosterone into estrogen.  When men are able to keep more of their testosterone, they are able to function sexually at a more youthful level.  Erectile dysfunction is a symptom that testosterone is being converted into estrogen that can fuel the growth of prostate cancer.  A man taking DIM may find his pot belly receding, his morning erections returning, and the return of more youthful energy.
