BIOFLEX DIM ESTROGEN BLOCKER
What is it? BIOFLEX DIM is a phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and is great for modulating Estogen levels in males and females. Cooking unfortunately seems to destroy a lot of the DIM, best to lightly steam your vegetables to retain most of the goodies.
In small doses DIM has been used to regulate healthy Estrogen levels in the body and reduce the conversion of Testosterone to Estrogen. Larger doses tend to reverse the process.
Who Should take it? Natural Athletes and gym goers can use BIOFLEX DIM to help balance Estrogen levels in the body. Higher than average Estrogen levels can interfere with fat loss, so DIM is often a component of a Fat-Loss supplement Stack (with Bioflex Day Shred).
What does it do? DIM is an interesting compound because it acts differently depending on the dosage. At 100mg per day DIM will do 2 things
- Interfere with the conversion of testosterone to Estrogen. Bottom line is you keep more of your testosterone for muscle repair and less estrogen to interfere with fat loss.
- Help convert the more potent forms of Estrogen to the less active forms. The less active forms still bind to the receptor, though they usually don’t send a very strong signal. Remember Estrogen is vital for both Male and Female health so we don’t want to eliminate it, we are just insuring levels don’t become too high and the type of estrogens present are predominately the milder versions.
At larger doses however DIM can upregulate Testosterone to Estrogen conversion, so just keep intake to 100mg per day.
DIM also exerts numerous anti-carcinogenic (anti-cancer) effects in the body and is one of the reasons this vegetable family is seen as healthy.
How do I take it? 1 BIOFLEX DIM capsule contains 100mg of DIM, which seems to be the optimal dosage for most people’s needs. 1 capsule with breakfast is as difficult as it gets.
