Rely on the Strength of Vegetables
Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C) is one of the reasons why your mother insisted that you eat your brussels sprouts. I3C is a powerful antioxidant found in the cell walls of cruciferous vegetables, i.e. broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and brussels sprouts. This antioxidant is especially helpful in the metabolism of estrogens, and in protecting breast tissue and reproductive organs from cell damage.
- Fights free radical damage.
- Protects estrogen-influenced organs.
- Supports the musculoskeletal system.

How Does it Work?
The compounds in cruciferous vegetables that protect cells from oxidative damage are called indoles, among them are I3C and its metabolites. These compounds work by binding to or activating certain receptors in the body to protect cells. I3C also acts as an antioxdant, helping to rid the body of oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
Both indole-3-carbinol and watercress have been the focus of scientific studies because of their role in protection against cell damage. Reports indicate that I3C supports the natural elimination of toxins from the liver, increases the body’s natural metabolism of hormones and helps maintain normal hormone levels.
I3C is patented for alleviating sore muscles and fatigue (1). Applications for PMS and menopause are patent-pending.
