In many women, the primary cause of a low 2:16 ratio is dietary. A recent study shows that photochemicals from cruciferous vegetables, such as indole-3-carbinol (I3C) and diindolylmethane (DIM), can decrease the flux of estrogens converting to “bad” estrogen.
By increasing the amount of cruciferous vegetables and making other small changes, you can change your ratio.
Follow-up testing with Estronex is recommended to monitor the efficacy of treatment plans over time.
