    Cauliflower and its affects on Estrogen


    Found this article somewhat interesting, for whatever its worth, felt like I would share...

    "There are two main ingredients in cauliflower, and all of the cruciferous family, that are the main disease fighters. These are indole-3-carbinol, or 13C, and the photonutrient sulforaphane. In research done at John Hopkins University in Baltimore, sulforaphane lowered the occurance of breast tumors in lab animals by almost 40%. Toxins that would normally damage the cells and turn cancerous, are swept out of the system by sulforaphane, preventing tumors before they begin. 13C works in concert with the sulforaphane by acting as an anti-estrogen. Estrogen in high levels is known to foster tumor growth, especially in the breasts and the prostate glands. 13c helps to lower the estrogen count, thus lowering the chances of tumor growth."

    Lots of people have been using I3C, it sells quite well for us http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/n...c-60-caps.html . It is also in many products, as well as its metabolite DIM.
