glutathione S-transferase (GST). This enhances the liver’s ability to
process and eliminate harmful compounds. It has also been reported to act as
a scavenger of free radicals.
Additionally, indole-3-carbinol is believed to have other mechanisms
contributing to healthy cellular support. A placebo-controlled trial
indicated that I3C supports cervical cell health.*
