What we can say about Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C)
I3C is a naturally occurring phytochemical found in cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, and kale. I3C provides powerful antioxidant protection, helping to prevent cellular damage caused by free radicals. In addition I3C can help to maintain healthy hormonal balance for both men and women and therefore may support the health of the breast, prostate, and other reproductive organs. I3C is also known to support the liver's detoxification processes as well as normal cellular reproduction.*
Oral ingestion of Indole 3 Carbinol has been shown to alter the metabolism of estrogen in a beneficial manner. Studies increasingly indicate that dietary indole-3-carbinol (I3C) prevents the development of estrogen-enhanced issues including breast, endometrial and cervical complications. Epidemiological, laboratory, animal and translational studies support the efficacy of I3C. I3C actually causes growth arrest and increased apoptosis and ameliorates the effects of estrogen. The weaker the estrogen, the less estrogenic effects they will have on the body. The stronger the form of estrogen, the more negative effects they will have on health. Therefore I3C promotes the weakest forms of estrogen while blocking strong estrogen receptors.
