The Health Benefits of DIM
If your friends are eating a cancer prevention diet, you’ve probably heard them talk about the many health benefits they are getting from making nutritional changes. Certain foods can help people lower their cancer risks while also improving their overall immune system. Among these foods are Brassica vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale and brussels sprouts.
These foods are rich in diindolymethane (DIM), a powerful organic compound that forms in the stomach after certain foods have been digested. There are many proven health benefits to eating foods that are rich in DIMs or taking a DIM supplement like AcitvaMune. Here are just a few examples:
– According to research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, women who consume one serving of Brassica vegetables per week see a 40 percent reduction in the occurrence of breast cancer.
– In 2007, scientists at the National Cancer Institute found that men who eat one serving of Brassica vegetables per week reduced their risk of developing potentially-deadly prostate cancer by up to 52 percent.
– DIM is also an immune system booster which can help older women to improve their hormonal balance and estrogen levels.
