Indole 3 Carbinol DIIM
What is Indol-3-carbinol (I3C) ?
Indol -3- carbinol (C9H9NO)
is produced by the breakdown of the glucosinolate glucobrassicin, which can be found at relatively high levels in cruciferousvegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, collard greens and kale.
