Who Can Benefit From Hormone Therapy?
ReBHRT is a supplement that provides support for women on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and others who need estrogen metabolism support. Estrogens are a group of female hormones estradiol, estrone, and estriol that interact with cells all over the body, including breast and prostate tissues. Estrogens are responsible for the growth of these cells and are very important for tissue development and repair.
What is ReBHRT?
Many women have difficulty maintaining a proper estrogen balance, and additional factors such as hormone replacement therapy or menopause can make this even more difficult. ReBHRT combines Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) and Diindolylmethane (DIM) to support estrogen balance. I3C and DIM are metabolites found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale, turnips, and rutabagas. I3C and DIM have been shown to work together to support estrogen balance by decreasing estrogen receptor activity and promoting breast and prostate health.
How does ReBHRT work?
Indole-3-carbinol and diindolylmethane have both been shown to promote 2-hydroxyestrone metabolism instead of other forms which can overstimulate cells and cause free radical damage. Both I3C and DIM also temper estrogens by decreasing estrogen receptor activity. This effect on estrogen receptors may lead to protection against some cancers. The National Institutes of Health is currently studying the use of I3C for the prevention of breast and colon cancers. DIM has also shown effects on estrogen metabolism that may offer beneficial effects and reduce the side effects of estrogen hormone replacement therapy that many women receive during menopause or perimenopause. The combination of these two metabolites, I3C and DIM, found in ReBHRT may have several beneficial effects for women on hormone replacement therapy or who need estrogen metabolism support.
