(Newswire.net — July 17, 2017) Orlando, FL — Diindolylmethane (DIM) has been widely believed to be beneficial for women. However, it may also offer some significant benefits to men.

Diindolylmethane is found to benefit testosterone activity. This compound is popularized by its potential effects on estrogen metabolism. However, due to this possible effect, it may also offer certain advantages in testosterone activity.

According to some experts, testosterone is a major contributor to the healthy balance of hormones in men and women. It is also called androgen, and once its effects dominate, certain male characteristics are seen. Some of these male characteristics are deeper voice, male body hair distribution, and male genital development.

It is further worth mentioning that testosterone is also called anabolic hormone, and this is due to its ability to promote protein synthesis. It is important to understand that active protein synthesis may produce bigger muscles as well as stronger bones, especially as a response to exercise.

This process also leads to an increased metabolic rate as well as fat consumption, and this leads to a leaner physique. The level of subtleness in the effects of testosterone may vary depending on its action as a support for mood and libido. It is worth mentioning that testosterone has a clear anti-depressant action, and it could promote interest in sex for both men and women.

It is important to understand that testosterone may act differently, and it depends on whether or not it is free or bound to carry proteins in the blood. Due to DIM’s possible effects on estrogen metabolism, it may be able to offer support to testosterone.

It is believed to do so by helping maintain the levels of free or active testosterone. Free testosterone refers to the process of testosterone diffraction, which circulates in the blood. Further, it is neither associated with nor bound by Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG), which is its carrier protein.

According to experts, only free testosterone can easily cross into the fat, brain, and muscle cells. Thus, much of the positive action of testosterone largely involves the free portion. When there are high levels of SHBG, free testosterone is locked up and this makes it unavailable in supporting mood or metabolism.

What makes this even more interesting is that unmetabolized estrogen is considered as the primary signal of the body, especially in increasing the production as well as the levels of testosterone-binding protein. Almost always, low levels of testosterone are seen during perimenopause. These low levels are even more dramatic in women who suffer from severe premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms.

DIM has been found to promote more active estrogen metabolism in some studies. This means that it may be able to trigger the drop of unmetabolized estrogen levels and the increase of 2-hydroxy-estrogens. The 2-hydroxy-estrogens have a unique ability to displace testosterone from SHGB and then set it free.
