Patented BioResponse DIM® is a microencapsulated, absorption-enhanced formulation of DIM. With regular use, BioResponse DIM® helps balance our hormone metabolism.
- DIM stands for 3,3’-Diindolylmethane, the indole found only in cruciferous vegetables.
- DIM occurs within the cruciferous vegetable plant after crushing or chewing. Plant enzymes produce DIM from precursors called glucosinolates.
- DIM promotes beneficial estrogen metabolism in both women and men. This estrogen metabolism is more favorable because it increases conversion of estrogen to 2-hydroxy and 2-methoxy metabolites. DIM is not a plant estrogen.
Prominent researchers have documented that this balance of estrogen metabolites is an important factor in maintaining breast and prostate health. Women and men also use BioResponse DIM as an integral part of successful weight management programs.
In its pure, crystalline state, DIM is inadequately absorbed by the human body. Microencapsulated BioResponse DIM is the only absorbable (bioavailable) formulation of pure DIM.
BioResponse DIM is the only DIM with proven absorption and activity demonstrated in independently performed clinical studies. BioResponse's patented formulation contains microencapsulated complexes of diindolylmethane for proven absorption. This patented technology is the only formulation of DIM with an awarded US Patent #6,086,915.
