Thorne’s DIM Advantage, featuring SGS and Pomegranate, supports balanced hormone health by helping the body metabolize and detoxify excess estrogen.* An imbalance of estrogen can be caused by several factors, such as chronic stress, obesity, and poor diet. It can even be related to environmental factors. Estrogen that is not properly metabolized in the body can lead to weight gain, low energy, moodiness, testosterone or progesterone imbalances, and an overall feeling of just not being yourself.
In addition, certain types of estrogen hormones are less healthy than others. And it is the unhealthy estrogens that can lead to irregular menstruation, abnormal growth of uterine or cervical tissues, and other serious health risks. Proper estrogen metabolism optimizes the ratios of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone in the body, and is an important part of promoting hormonal balance in both men and women.*
DIM Advantage promotes healthy estrogen metabolism, encourages estrogen detoxification, and supports hormonal balance.* The formula combines diindolylmethane (DIM), pomegranate extract, and sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS), from broccoli seed extract. DIM is a powerful component found in broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and other leafy-green cruciferous vegetables that encourage a healthy balance of “good” versus “bad” estrogen and estrogen metabolization.* Pomegranate extract works to balance estrogen-related responses, and SGS promotes liver detoxification, which is crucial to clearing already-metabolized estrogens.*
Although the process of balancing and detoxifying estrogen is similar in both men and women, the benefits are very different based on gender.
