Adding more brassicas to your diet is helpful for maintaining healthy estrogen levels in your body. These foods contain a compound named Diiodolylmethane, or DIM, that works to improve healthy estrogen metabolism directly. Furthermore, the cruciferous family of vegetables naturally contains Calcium D-Glucarate, which also directly improves estrogen metabolism and helps to reduce total estrogen levels.
Brassicas includes; cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts, kale, mustard greens, etc.
These foods contain a chemical called indole 3-carbinol (I3C) that decreases production of the C4 and C16 metabolites.
*Note: the indoles are destroyed through cooking, so these foods should be consumed raw or lightly steamed.
