Dim Enhanced 30 vegetarian capsules
DIM Enhanced, provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a microencapsulated form of diindolylmethane, with curcumin, green tea, and wasabi designed to support healthy hormone balance and immune health. Microencapsulated DIM by BioResponse is a patented, absorption-enhancing formulation to ensure proper assimilation by the body.
During the body's natural detoxification processes, potentially detrimental molecules such as hormone metabolites, alcohol, drugs, and air pollutants are removed from the bloodstream via the liver. Healthy hormone detoxification is a crucial part of the normal functioning of the immune system. Diindolylmethane (DIM) is one molecule known for the supportive role it plays in stimulating natural detoxification enzymes and supporting normal hormone metabolism. As a natural component derived from indole-3-carbine and cruciferous vegetables, DIM has shown in studies to support the 2-hydroxylation instead of 16-hydroxylation of certain estrogen metabolites. This favors the production of a 2-hydroxysteroid over the more deleterious 16-hydroxy estrone. Other studies indicate that diindolylmethane may play important roles in inducing apoptosis and supporting the body's normal angiogenic balance, especially in regards to healthy breast, cervical, and prostate cells. Microencapsulated DIM is the only diindolylmethane with proven absorption and activity demonstrated in independently performed clinical studies. BioResponse DIM contains pure DIM, microencapsulated in particles complexed with a vitamin E derivative and phospholipids to aid absorption from our intestinal tract. The patented formulation process for making BioResponse DIM creates microparticles of DIM, emulsifies the DIM with vitamin E and phospholipids, and captures these complexes through a drying process in larger particles of pure food starch. The result is a sustained-release, dry powder which re-dissolves easily after oral consumption. The graph below shows greater absorption of microencapsulated DIM compared to fine crystalline DIM.
DIM Enhanced may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to support healthy estrogen detoxification, hormone balance, and immune support.
Adults take 1- 2 capsules daily with food, in divided doses, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
Avoid this product if pregnant or lactating. If taking prescription blood thinners such as Coumadin (warfarin) consult your physician prior to use.
