What is DIM?

Diindolylmethane, commonly referred to as DIM, is found in cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, kale, and cauliflower. In fact, one of the main reasons these vegetables are considered healthy is due to the presence of diindolylmethane.

DIM Supplement Benefits

Diindolylmethane and the Immune System

One of the most prominent benefits of DIM supplementation is its positive effects on the immune system. Diindolylmethane has the ability to stimulate the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR), which is responsible for attacking toxins that enter the body. AhR activation occurs when the immune system is compromised. Diindolylmethane allows more AhR lignans to be present when these situations occur. AhR is also associated with the production of Natural Killer (NK) cells. NK cells are crucial for protecting the immune system from damage. [1,2]

Diindolylmethane and Estrogen Regulation

An overabundance of estrogen can cause multiple complications including cell damage within the breasts, uterus, and cervix. DIM supplements protect the tissue at the cellular level from this damage. [3,4,5]

Since diindolylmethane is an aromatase inhibitor, this supplement is used in the bodybuilding community for post cycle therapy. Testosterone and growth hormone boosters are taken to increase strength and muscle size, but these supplements can cause excess testosterone to convert to estrogen. Using Diindolylmethane reduces the odds of experiencing this hormonal change.[6]

DIM Supplement Dosage

The recommended dosage of diindolylmethane is 100mg.

Synonyms: DIM, 3,3'-Diindolylmethane
