MD Nutritionals Indolplex
Benefits: MD Nutritionals Indolplex
- Features 3, 3′-diindolylmethane (DIM), is a natural plant indole that is abundant in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage.
- In supplemental form DIM can be difficult to absorb. MD Nutritionals Indolplex contains a proprietary DIM complex to enhance absorption. This microencapsulated formulation provides higher bioavailability.
- MD Nutritionals Indolplex features absorption-enhanced DIM to support female healthy hormone balance.
- Supports oestrogen hormone levels in both women and men. Oestrogens are a group of three biochemically distinct hormones, oestradiol (E2), oestrone (E1), and oestriol (E3). Furthermore, oestrogen is enzymatically converted to specific oestrogen metabolites such as 16-alpha hydroxyoestrones, 2-methoxyoestrogens, 16-alpha hydroxyoestrone, 4-hydroxyoestrogens and 4-methoxyoestrogens.
- May help support healthy prostate function.
- Helps reduce free radicals formed in the body.
- When comparing dietary indoles studies show MD Nutritionals Indolplex is more stable than indole-3-carbinol (I3C), the precursor to DIM.

Technical Information: MD Nutritionals Indolplex
Indoles are natural phytonutrients found in cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and broccoli. These biologically active compounds are associated with a lower risk of major health issues. DIM is the most abundant and active dietary indole derived from cruciferous vegetables. Indolplex contains bioavailable DIM, a unique and highly absorbable diindolylmethane with demonstrated clinical activity.
Indolplex is not phytoestrogenic and has no inherent oestrogenic activity. Indolplex assists the favourable metabolism of oestrogen down the 2-hydroxylation pathway. A beneficial shift in metabolism can help maintain healthy oestrogen ratios and reduce the symptoms of oestrogen dominance. The active 2-hydroxyoestrone metabolites are considered the ‘good’ oestrogens. Whereas the 4-hydroxyoestrone and 16-alpha-hydroxyoestrone metabolites are often termed the ‘bad’ oestrogens. The common symptoms of oestrogen dominance are often due to underactive oestrogen metabolism and the overproduction of unfavourable oestrogen metabolites.
Indolplex may be beneficial in symptoms associated with pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) and medically diagnosed conditions such as fibrocystic breast disease, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), uterine fibroids, cyclical mastalgia and cervical dysplasia.
Indolplex may assist health of the reproductive tract and breast in women.
Indolplex may assist symptoms of medically diagnosed prostate disorders.
Indolplex may assist the metabolic changes observed in obesity in both men and women. Obesity, often considered an oestrogen excess condition is associated with an increased incidence of reproductive dysfunction and oestrogen linked disorders. Obesity is also associated with a significant reduction in 2-hydroxylation of oestrogen. This metabolic alteration could further aggravate a relative hyperoestrogenic state. Unlike other oestrogen metabolites, the 2-hydroxyoestrogen compounds display relatively little peripheral oestrogenic activity. When used in conjunction with a nutritious diet and regular exercise Indolplex can support improvements in body composition.
