|What Is It?
Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C) is a phytochemical naturally
occurring in cruciferous vegetables. Once ingested,
stomach acid converts I3C to various active metabolites
including diindolylmethane (DIM), which are absorbed
into the bloodstream.*
Uses For Indole-3-Carbinol
Promotes Breast, Cervical and Prostate Cell Health:
Indole-3-carbinol has been shown to promote healthy
phase I cytochrome P450 detoxification enzymes and
phase II detoxification enzymes such as glutathione
S-transferase (GST). This enhances the liver's ability to
process and eliminate harmful compounds. It has also
been reported to act as a scavenger of free radicals.
Additionally, indole-3-carbinol is believed to have other
mechanisms contributing to healthy cellular support.*
What Is The Source?
In nature, indole-3-carbinol can be found in cruciferous
vegetables such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage,
bok choy, cauliflower, and kale. Indole-3-Carbinol
in supplement form is synthetically produced.
Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.
