Est-Less contains I-3-C (indole-3-carbinol) and DIM (diindolymethane) which are considered the main active ingredients in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower. This formulation also provides the all important antioxidant Vitamin E.
DIM is a nutritional approach to achieving a safer and healthier estrogen metabolism, or of protecting it. Many of the benefits traditionally ascribed to estrogen (protection from heart disease, healthy skin, bones, and brain) may actually reside with its beneficial metabolites, the 2-hydroxy estrogens.
Indole-3-carbonyl, which is found in cabbage, broccoli and kale, stimulates enzymes that reduce the effectiveness of estrogen, thereby reducing the risk of breast cancer.
It is recommended for those women with a history suggestive of severe estrogen dominance –breast cancer,endometriosis, fibroids, PMDD, fibrocystic disease, ovarian cysts – or for those men with high estradiol levels from taking testosterone or who have prostate cancer.
Contains indole 3 carbinol (I-3-C) which converts “Bad” estrogen into “Good” estrogen. Estrogen is implicated in cancer of the prostate, breast, colon, uterus, cervix and ovaries. It reduces auto-immune response and may promote aging.
Recommended use: One capsule per day
