Estrogen is broken down in the body into different metabolites. Each of these metabolites has different effects on the body. Some metabolites are low estrogenic and offer many benefits in the body and some are highly estrogenic, which are not as favorable. Research studies suggest that exercise works to increase the low estrogenic metabolites and decrease the high estrogenic metabolites and supplementation with DIM is also used by many people to support these effects.
Research studies suggest that the 2-hydroxy estrogens (2-OH Estradiol/Estrone) and the 2-methoxy estrogens (2-Methoxy-Estradiol/Estrone) have beneficial and protective effects in the body. Research also suggests that increases in 16-hydroxy estrogens (16α-OH Estradiol/Estrone) are associated with damaging effects in the body.
Research suggests that DIM can support healthy levels of 2-hydroxy estrogens and 16-hydroxy estrogens in the body.
