DIM (Diindolylmethane)

Helps control testosterone metabolism*

Reduces symptoms of PMS*

Helps control testosterone metabolism*

DIM is a sulfur-containing phytonutrient f rom cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage. DIM is formed when stomach acid breaks down indole-3-carbinol (I3C) f rom these vegetables. Microencapsulated DIM in the Core-4 products provides far superior doses, absorption, and greater bioavailability, which is nearly impossible to attain from diet alone.

Research suggests that DIM helps support healthy estrogen metabolism in men and women by promoting the metabolism of estrogen into the favorable 2-hydroxyestrone (2-OHE) vs. the more harmful 4-OHE and 16-OHE. DIM is a natural aromatase inhibitor and helps release testosterone f rom SHBG, making more testosterone available to the body. Increasing testosterone can have a positive effect on body composition, athletic performance, and sexual desire. Research also suggests that DIM may help prevent cancer, especially of the breast and prostate, in all stages of cancer development.

Curcumin + Black Pepper Extract

Powerful anti-inflammatory*

Increases antioxidant capacity in the body*

Boosts brain-derived neurotrophic factor*

Curcumin is the active phytonutrient derived f rom the root of the turmeric plant. The bright orange-yellow spice is popular as the main ingredient in curry powder and has been used for centuries in Ayurveda, traditional Indian medicine.

Turmeric has been studied extensively and has been shown to support a healthy inflammatory response, helps the body’s natural defense against bacteria and acts as a powerful antioxidant. The spice is poorly absorbed from food, so the Core-4 products combine turmeric extract with black pepper extract, enhancing its absorption by 2,000%

Berberine, Alpha Lipoic
Acid (ALA) & Biotin

Supports healthy blood lipid metabolism*

Powerful antioxidant support*

Support glucose metabolism*

Promotes insulin sensitivity*

Berberine activates the enzymes that encourage glucose uptake and the breakdown of adipose tissue while decreasing the expression of the genes involved in lipid synthesis. Effective management of blood sugar and insulin help reduce the formation of Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs). AGEs are associated with the progression of degenerative diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity and cancer.

ALA is a cofactor for several enzymes in the Krebs cycle, helping the body to convert fats, carbohydrates, and proteins into energy. ALA has also been studied for its powerful antioxidant properties. Having both water- and fat-soluble properties, ALA elicits antioxidant action in both the cytosol & plasma membrane, providing further-reaching affects compared to vitamins C & E.

Biotin (vitamin B-7) is also included in the Core-4 products because it is structurally similar to ALA and directly competes with biotin. Like ALA, biotin is a cofactor in the process of breaking down food into energy, reduces fasting blood sugar and HbA1c, and improves the glycemic response. Biotin may also improve hair health, skin hydration and smoothness, and strengthen fingernails.

Vitamins B-6, B-12
Folate & Betaine

Supports healthy homocysteine levels*

Supports cardiovascular and neurological health*

Homocysteine damages the lining of arterial walls, leading to increased arterial wall thickness and stiff ness. Homocysteine is produced during the metabolization of the essential amino acid methionine. This process is a cycle – methionine metabolizes to homocysteine, then back to methionine with the help of vitamins B-6, B-12, folate and betaine.

Optimal functioning of this pathway is important for cardiovascular, neurological, immune, eye, muscle and bone health. Homocysteine can be further converted into cysteine then glutathione, the most important antioxidant in the body.
