Phytonutrient, estrogen, testosterone, and acupuncture

Cruciferous vegetables include cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, parsnips, cabbage and bean sprouts. Dr. Zabriskie Nieske cited scientific evidence to explain why an increased intake of cruciferous vegetables has been shown to reduce the overall risk of cancer. One of the components found in these vegetables, indole-3-carbinol (I3C), was widely investigated as potential chemo-preventive and chemotherapeutic agent. Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) has the following positive effects on our health, said Dr. Niewske Zabriskie:

1. This increases the metabolism of estrogens by useful 2-hydroxylation pathway in humans from 29 percent to over 45 percent. The increase in 2-hydroxylation pathway reduces the activity of other, more harmful way.

2. Good estrogen metabolites, 2-hydroxylation of end products, decreased cell proliferation and increased programmed cell death, which plays an important role in cancer prevention.

3. I3C also increases the expression of the known breast cancer genes BRCA1 suppression. Also inhibits the activation of I3C estrogen receptor by estradiol, estrogen increased cancer prevented.

4. I3C also protects against cervical cancer. Estrogen promotes the development of cervical cancer cells infected with high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV). I3C and 2-hydroxyestrone inhibiting estrogen increased expression of HPV, the cancer-promoting genes

5. The data also show that I3C to age is a potent scavenger of free radicals, highly reactive chemicals that cause damage in the body and, degenerative diseases and cancer.

6. I3C is due to acid in the stomach diindolylmethane (DIM) catalyzes. DIM is the active component in the I3C useful and cruciferous plants. Animal models have shown that supplementation with I3C exposure to a known carcinogen, reduction of breast cancer by 70-90 per cent. Studies of human breast cancer cells have shown that DIM inhibits the growth of estrogen-dependent and estrogen-independent cancer cells by about 60 percent. The same study also showed that DIM binds to estrogen receptors in these cells by inhibiting the binding of estradiol.

7. Other data show that I3C. Growth of the blood flow is reduced to the cancer cells and the spread of cancer cells at the local level, and that it protects the liver from carcinogens

8. DIM also has anti-androgenic effect. Studies show that DIM dihydyrotestosterone (DHT) with respect to inhibiting the androgen receptor in androgen-dependent human prostate cancer cells, thereby. The induction of DNA synthesis DIM and reduced levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA).
