Indole 3 Carbinol Effect on Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), commonly called lupus, is an inflammatory, autoimmune disorder affecting the skin, joints, kidneys, brain and other organs where the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. Lupus predominantly strikes women during the years when they are menstruating and their estrogen levels are highest. The link between lupus and estrogen is an area of intense study as is the role of a natural substance found in all cruciferous vegetables called indole 3 carbinol (I3C).
