It is for this reason that hormones are vital in human development and tissue repair. Supporting proper estrogen synthesis, metabolism and detoxification is essential for proper hormonal balance. I3C helps achieve this goal through its ability to temper estrogen signals by competing for binding sites and inhibiting the activity of estrogen receptors.
The second phytonutrient compound, DIM, promotes beneficial estrogen metabolism in both sexes and enhances the potential for greater antioxidant activity. Calcium D-glucarate is the supplemental calcium salt form of D-glucaric acid, a substance found naturally in the body and in consumption of certain fruits and vegetables.
Calcium D-glucarate has been extensively studied and shown to inhibit beta-glucaronidase, an enzyme found in certain gut bacteria. This activity supports the body’s ability to detoxify estrogens, foreign molecules and fat soluble toxins.
