Indole FortéTM provides the combined protective benefits of indole-3-carbinol (I3C), diindolylmethane (DIM), and other dietary indoles. Dietary indoles are active, naturally-occurring phytonutrient compounds found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, kale, and brussel sprouts. This specific group of phytonutrients assists elimination of toxins from the liver, promotes healthy balance of estrogen metabolites, and helps maintain cellular health for both men and women.
Indole compounds help shift estrogen balance in favor of 2-hydroxyestrone, a protective estrogen metabolite, and exert beneficial effects on reproductive tissues such as breast, cervix, and prostate. Increased consumption of cruciferous vegetables (including broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, cabbage, kale, turnips, bok choy, and kohlrabi) is associated with decreased incidence of abnormal cell growth and proliferation in several different tissues.
Indole FortéTM contains a broad-spectrum mixture of I3C, DIM, and associated dietary indoles. Inclusion of I3C plus preformed DIM and other important related active metabolites ensures that the complete benefits of cruciferous plants are preserved. Indole-3-carbinol readily breaks down once ingested into DIM and other dietary indoles, but the exact indoles responsible for the beneficial activity are not fully understood.
Indole FortéTM is intended as a nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to ensure adequate intake of nutritionally meaningful amounts of dietary indoles that may assist proper balance of estrogen and estrogen metabolites related to the well-being of estrogen-sensitive tissues.
Suggested Use: 1 to 2 capsules daily with food.
