What Is It?
DIM Detox provides powerful support for detoxification and cellular health by promoting healthy cell cycle function and hormone metabolism.*
Uses For DIM Detox
Cellular Health and Detoxification: The glucosinolates in broccoli, including indole-3-carbinol, and sulforaphane, help support healthy detoxification. BioResponse DIM® provides 25 mg per serving of a highly absorbable form of diindolylmethane, an important metabolite of indole-3-carbinol. These compounds promote healthy estrogen metabolism and cell cycle activity. Calcium-d-glucarate targets beta-glucuronidase enzyme activity, promoting healthy hormone detoxification through the glucuronidation pathway. Lignans, such as 7-hydroxymatairesinol (HMR), are converted in the body to enterolactone. Research indicates that dietary intake of lignans and healthy serum enterolactone levels provide support for cell, heart, breast, bone and cognitive health. Silymarin, alpha lipoic acid and n-acetyl-l-cysteine act to support phase II detoxification enzyme activity in the liver and offer antioxidant support for cellular protection. Taurine, glycine and methionine promote phase II detoxification pathways and healthy cell metabolism.*

Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
Some studies have reported that milk thistle, calcium-d-glucarate and broccoli sprout extract can affect the way that the liver breaks down medications metabolized by the cytochrome P450 system, altering the effects of these medications and possibly the dose needed for treatment. Broccoli sprout extract may react with blood thinning medications. Consult your physician for more information.
