Supports female reproductive health by facilitating estrogen metabolism in the liver*
Indole-3-Carbinol contains a compound found in cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower and cabbage. It helps maintain an optimal ratio of 2-hydroxy (good) to 16-hydroxy (bad) estrogen.*
In the liver, I3C promotes the metabolism of estrogen and increases the ratio of 2-hydroxy estrogen to 16-hydroxy estrogen.* The 2-hydroxy estrogens, which are less active than the 16-hydroxy estrogens, are generally eliminated more quickly from the body. One study found postmenopausal women who had the most favorable 2:16-hydroxy estrogen ratio were most likely to maintain good female health.* Studies have examined the efficacy, safety, and optimal supplementation of I3C. A 12-week trial conducted on 17 women found a 66-percent increase in the 2:16-hydroxy estrogen ratio with administration of 400 mg of I3C daily.*
