    INDOLE -3-CARBINOL-DOES it suppress estrogen ormanage it?


    Hi

    not exactly sure how this product works. i have an idea that it manages estrogen in the sense of getting rid of the bad and leaving the good.However whatsthe impact on testosterone and dht by doing that? More of both or is there no impact on test levels?

    I think most will agree it has very little effect, if any, on actual testosterone or dht levels. Maybe evtremely small effects if your estrogen ratio was a little off...but I3C isn't going to work like an aromatase inhibitor

    I think I3C is an awesome ingredients. Its been shown to manage estrogen, not lower it. It can convert negative estrogen like E2 into more manageable/necessary estrogen.

    Agreed. I3C can be used with an AI, with test boosters, etc. It really only has positive effects, no matter how you use it

    I3C is an amazing ingredient, which is why we put it in TestoPRO. It shifts estrogen metabolism towards the more friendly metabolites of estrogen.

    I3C itself will have negligible, if any impact on serum testosterone or DHT levels.

    There is a ton of scientific research on this product. DIM is even better. Just "google" DIM and you will find all the info you need.
