    Maintaining optimal hormone balance is essential to any comprehensive whole-body health strategy. Triple Action Cruciferous Vegetable Extract combines vegetable extracts into a powerful formula to help maintain healthy hormone levels.1-11 I3C (Indole-3-carbinol) and DIM (di-indolyl-methane) favorably modulate estrogen metabolism and induce liver detoxification enzymes to help neutralize potentially harmful estrogen metabolites and xenoestrogens (estrogen-like environmental chemicals).12-16 Extracts of broccoli, watercress, and rosemary provide glucosinolates, isothiocyanates, carnosic acid, and carnosol - bioactive compounds that have a multitude of favorable effects on estrogen metabolism and cell division.17-20 Apigenin, a powerful plant flavonoid, is also added to the formula to boost cell protection,21 while cabbage extract, a natural source of benzyl isothiocyanate (BITC), is included to maintain cell health.8,22
