Indole-3‑carbinol is a potent antioxidant which helps reduce oxidative stress exerted by free radicals. It also supports estrogen metabolism.
Indole-3‑carbinol (I3C) is the phytochemical responsible for the antioxidant properties of the family of vegetables known as Brassicaceae (formerly Cruciferae), which includes broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kale, and cauliflower.
Indole-3‑carbinol is an organic compound formed as a result of the action of the enzyme myrosinase with the precursor compound indole-3‑glucosinolate within these vegetables upon maceration (crushing). The antioxidant activity of indole-3‑carbinol protects cells, including their DNA, from the effects of environmental toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis.
Research in both Europe and North America has demonstrated a correlation between the consumption of cruciferous vegetables and disease risk. This makes supplementation with indole-3‑carbinol well worth exploring for your commitment to good health.
