Thorne’s DIM Advantage combines diindolylmethane (DIM), pomegranate extract, and sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS; from broccoli seed extract) to support balanced hormone health by helping the body metabolize and detoxify excess estrogen.
Estrogen that is not properly metabolized can lead to:
- weight gain
- low energy
- imbalances of testosterone or progesterone levels
- and an overall feeling of just not being yourself
Imbalances in hormones, particularly estrogen and progesterone, can significantly influence a woman’s monthly cycle. Excess estrogens are linked to irregular, heavy, or uncomfortable menstrual cycles. These hormone imbalances can also contribute to breast tenderness, bloating, and mood changes related to PMS.
Everyday Wellness Benefits for Women:
- Support for a smooth monthly transition
- Balancing of hormone levels related to breast tenderness, mood changes, and other symptoms that occur before menses
- Promotes the clearance of estrogen-mimicking toxins encountered in daily life – like those toxins found in pesticides, herbicides, and plastics
Long-term Benefits for Women:
- Supports breast, cervical, and uterine health
- Improves the ratio of healthy-to-less-healthy estrogen
- Offers chemoprotective effects from its long-lasting antioxidant support
Not Just for Women!
Although the body’s process to balance and detoxify estrogen is similar in both men and women, the benefits are very different.
Wellness Benefits for Men:
- Enhances the level of testosterone
- Supports prostate health
- Promotes an optimal ratio of estrogen to testosterone
- Men with excess estrogen can develop enlarged breast tissue or experience less than ideal erectile function. DIM Advantage assists with reduction of estrogen receptor activation in areas of high receptor density, such as in breast and erectile tissue
- Reducing excess estrogen aids in physical fitness, energy, and weight management
