DIM is an indole phytochemical that is a natural metabolite of compounds found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage. In preclinical studies, DIM has been shown to lead to the preferential formation of estrogen metabolites that are correlated with healthy breast, endometrial, and cervical tissues. This unique property sets DIM apart from other plant nutrients. Source Naturals DIM is combined with phospholipids, vitamin E and BioPerine for enhanced absorption.

Diindolylmethane is a natural chemical formed in your digestive tract from a compound called glucobrassicin, which is contained in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. DIM supplements also are available from many retail sources and might help prevent or suppress growth of several forms of cancer, including breast, colon and prostate cancer.
Cancer is a group of diseases in which cells grow out of control, dividing rapidly and invading healthy tissue. These abnormal cells might form tumors in one or more places in the body and also might metastasize, spreading to other locations where they cause secondary cancerous growths. Diindolylmethane might help control or stop the growth of cancer through several of its actions, such as stopping cell division, inhibiting invasion of healthy tissue by malignant cells and suppressing growth of blood vessels in cancerous tumors. A clinical trial of DIM by the National Cancer Institute, begun in 2009 and still ongoing as of April 2011, is testing whether the compound prevents spread or recurrence of prostate cancer in human cancer patients
Human papilloma virus, or HPV, is a microorganism that causes several disorders, including a form of cervical cancer and a lung disorder called respiratory papillomatosis. DIM might help reduce the symptoms of these disorders and suppress their recurrence, possibly by inhibiting growth of the virus. In a small clinical study of subjects with respiratory papillomatosis published in “Journal of Voice” in 2004, consuming DIM seemed to lessen recurrence of the disease, measured five years following treatment with the supplement. These are promising findings, although larger, carefully controlled studies of DIM and viral infections are needed.
