What are the best ingredients and supplements for breast health?
You may have heard of DIM; a compound derived from vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, kale, and cauliflower that has a profound influence on breast wellness and overall cellular health. Multiple studies show that a diet full of these cruciferous vegetables can significantly protect and supports breast health. But DIM isn’t the only ingredient that can promote healthy breasts and gynecological health for women.
What are the Health Benefits of DIM?
DIM is often used in breast health supplements and has been shown to support the immune system and help keep hormones in balance, like excess estrogen and unhealthy environmental estrogen-like compounds, including harmful “xenoestrogens”. In the body, estrogen gets broken down into a variety of metabolites, some of which can cause problems in your breasts. DIM has been shown to help the body produce beneficial estrogen metabolites with antioxidant effects, and reduce unhealthy estrogens.1
Breast health, and other areas of hormone-related cellular health, depend on this delicate balance.
Why You Need More than DIM
For optimal breast cellular health and defense, you need more than just DIM on its own. When you have the right amount of DIM, combined with antioxidants, botanicals and other natural ingredients into a powerful, researched supplement, breast health benefits are significantly enhanced. This combination of breast health ingredients gives you complete support and defense for optimal breast health and longevity. This is the clinical-grade power and benefit you get from expert, physician-designed formulations, vs. single ingredients on their own.
Physician-formulated BreastDefend contains DIM together with other powerful natural botanical extracts and functional mushrooms, to actively promote breast health, hormone balance, and overall wellness for women. Unlike other breast health supplements, BreastDefend is shown in four published studies to provide powerful support and defense for breast cellular health, healthy gene expression, and longevity, in hormone positive as well as hormone negative breast cells.2-5* BreastDefend is a powerful, scientifically researched formula that has been used successfully in integrative clinics to actively support and maintain breast cellular health, support the immune system, and promote hormonal balance that is so critical to keeping you healthy over time.*
