Hello all, I've recently been researching DIM (Diindolylmethane) it is a compound made from cruciferous veggies like broccoli that is known to help acne because of its ability to correct estrogen dominance, get rid of bad estrogens(xenoestrogens and the like) and up the level of good estrogens.
I believe I have many symptoms of estrogen dominance like PMS, cramps, mood swings all the time, being very emotional for no damn reason, bloating, and i also tend to break out the worst during ovulation and a week before my period, and then my acne "magically" cures itself right before and during menstruation. wtf right? the list of symptoms goes on..
i'm just wondering if anyone out there with estrogen dominance happens to have had an experience with DIM? I'm currently taking 2 capsules of the Estroblock brand .. also taking 500 mg of Calcium D Glucarate to help flush excess bad estrogens out as well.
and 30 mg of zinc for good measure. So far I haven't noticed much of a difference, but i've read reviews on amazon that say it took up to a month or two to see really amazing results. here are the reviews if you guys wanna read:
hmm. the true test will be if i break out after my next cycle.
I've seen a megapost on DIM that was started in like 2008 and the original poster updated it saying the majority of people found that DIM only worked for about 6 weeks, then "lost" its power.. but it makes me wonder, did these people trying DIM even have an estrogen dominance to correct?
I'd appreciate any feedback on this matter
