Indole-3-carbinol [I3C] is a substance found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and is also available as a dietary supplement and is promising agent for the prevention of estrogen-enhanced cancers. Indole-3-carbinol predictably alters endogenous estrogen metabolism which leads to enhanced formation of the inactive catechol estrogens and may thereby provide a novel dietary supplement for reducing cancer risk. Indole-3-carbinol and its dimer diindolylmethane are often found in testosterone booster in belief that they will decrease excess estrogen which may result if testosterone is increased above normal levels.
