Although estrogen is needed to maintain sexual health in both women and men, excessive levels of it can lead to a cluster of symptoms or even certain forms of cancer in both sexes. Instead of compounding the problem by trying to produce excessive levels of its balancing hormones progesterone or testosterone, this formula supplies Diindolylmethane (DIM) to get our bodies to produce less of the potentially harmful forms of estrogen along with a blend of antioxidants and methyl donors to help our liver's phase II detoxification pathway deal with the excess.

Although estrogen is needed to maintain sexual health in both women and men, excessive levels of it can lead to a cluster of symptoms or even certain forms of cancer in both sexes. Instead of compounding the problem by trying to produce excessive levels of its balancing hormones progesterone or testosterone, this formula supplies Diindolylmethane (DIM) to get our bodies to produce less of the potentially harmful forms of estrogen along with a blend of antioxidants and methyl donors to help our liver's phase II detoxification pathway deal with the excess.

Product Notes:



Higher than normal estrogen levels can affect both women (where its called estrogen dominance) and men, leading initially to symptoms like low libido, sleep disturbance, breast pain, water retention, brain fog, acne, and mood disorders in women, or 'man boobs', low fertility, ED, or a similar cluster of fatigue, lack of energy, and mood changes in men.

Sometimes, this may due to the accumulation of "xenoestrogens" and/or endocrine disrupting chemicals, which are man-made chemicals like the Bisphenol A (BPA) in plastic bottles that can trick our estrogen receptors into thinking they're the real deal, and which may get taken up and stored for later use in our fat tissues, and released if we burn that fat while dieting or exercising.

Normally, our livers break down the unneeded circulating estrogen and send it to the bowels to be eliminated, but if there's too much of it, or if a person is often constipated and it stays there too long, there can be problems.

This formula is designed to improve this issue with a three-pronged approach, by including: a particularly well-absorbed form of DIM, to help lower your body's own production of the stronger forms of estrogen; a blend of antioxidants to work with the DIM in assisting the liver in its detoxification process; and, to beat the xenoestrogens at their own game, a special type of lignan that our bodies can convert to a much friendlier (it's believed to be more likely to protect against breast or prostate cancer than to cause it), plant-based estrogen analogue called enterolactone, to occupy some of the estrogen receptors, instead.

This product is known simply as "DIM Detox" in the USA.
