After 20 years of research and hundreds of studies, there is evidence that cruciferous vegetables are important in a healthy diet.
Cruciferous vegetables are a large family (Brassicaceae) that all bloom in the same way. There are a lot of them: cauliflower, white cabbage, chinese cabbage, kale, turnip cabbage, pointed cabbage. Vegetables that resemble a cabbage or small tuber are also included like Brussels sprouts, radishes and kohlrabi. Then there are three others: broccoli, watercress and bok choy. They don't look like cabbage and it's not in the name. Yet they also belong to the cruciferous vegetables.
An important substance in cruciferous vegetables is, among others, DIM (diindolylmethane). DIM does not occur in vegetables themselves. By processing it (think of cutting or cooking) enzymes are released that are converted into DIM during digestion in the stomach. DIM can have a positive effect on the digestion and breakdown of estrogen, resulting in a balanced hormone level. Taking a DIM supplement can be useful if you want to speed up the treatment of estrogen dominance.
Cruciferous Plus is a powerful antioxidant and DIM supplement containing special antioxidant phytonutrients which aren't found in any other food.
These phytonutrients reduce the harmful effects of many chemical compounds and protect cell DNA.
Sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol (from broccoli and other cruciferous extracts), as well as d-limonene (derived from the peel of oranges) support the enzyme activity associated with normal cell growth and repair of breast and prostate tissue in particular.
