Vegetables such as cabbages‚ broccoli‚ cauliflower‚ and Brussels sprouts are good sources of indole-3-carbinol (I3C). I3C is a compound that promotes both liver detoxification and the functioning of the female reproductive system. Unfortunately‚ it is relatively rare in the standard Western diet.
Indole-3-Carbinol 400 mg by Pure Encapsulations is a supplement that serves as a more convenient form of I3C than cruciferous produce. Most of the I3C you get through food or capsules is absorbed in the small intestine after being converted into diindolylmethane (DIM). DIM then binds selectively to estrogen receptors in the body to block them‚ which may promote hormonal balance. This phytochemical works to maintain a good ratio of two types of estrogen‚ 2-hydroxy estrogen to 16-hydroxy estrogen; the latter may have fewer inflammatory effects.
An estrogen imbalance may be especially problematic for women‚ since it may harm cells in the cervix and breasts. However‚ indole-3-carbinol can also help men; an excess of estrogen may negatively impact prostate health. Both genders can benefit from the potential Indole-3-Carbinol 400 mg has to support the repair of liver tissues; it promotes cellular reproduction and regeneration when one part of this vital organ experiences damage. Furthermore‚ I3C assists in your body's natural metabolism of several hormones and the elimination of toxins.
Every capsule provides 400 milligrams of I3C. Indole-3-Carbinol 400 mg may also fight off free radicals‚ which can result in additional cellular damage.
Take one or two capsules daily‚ in divided doses with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 120-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' Indole-3-Carbinol 400 mg should last from two to four months.
