DIM or diindolylmethane is a natural substance generated when the body breaks down indole-3-carbinol, a compound that’s found in cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli.
There are various health benefits to taking DIM in a supplement form. The particular substance contains a myriad of benefits both for your skin and your overall health, and it even plays a significant role in regulating estrogen levels.
DIM is a renowned ingredient when it comes to combating acne-prone skin. It treats both the causes and the symptoms of acne and is beneficial for those who suffer from hormonal acne, due to puberty or menopause. Androgen is the hormones which become imbalanced and can lead to increased sebum production and consequently turns into acne. Androgens are often referred to as male hormones but women can have them too. DIM has antiandrogen benefits that are great for acne treatments. It prevents bad estrogen pathways to form and provides a balanced level of estrogen and testosterone. Furthermore, another benefit of DIM is the fact that it can inhibit the production of mTORC, which can cause hormonal acne.
While using DIM may result in complexion improvements for those with oily or acne-prone skin, it actually has more than its blemish-reducing ability. DIM is great for those with estrogen dominance symptoms which relate to heavier or longer periods, emotional PMS symptoms or feelings of depression. Clinical studies have shown that there have been improvements after a few doses, whereas others need to take it for three to four weeks before noticing a change.
