Questions for DIM users

Recommended Posts

1. Is it helping with oil?

2. Is it helping with blackheads & closed comedones (small bumps). Is it pushing everything to the surface?

3. Skin tone, red marks, etc?

Thanks.

1. So far yes, but a lot of people report that it stops working on oil after some time. My face is totally oil free right now and I used to be an oil slick.

2. I'm not sure, I've only been on it for 9 or 10 days and so far it has dried up a lot of whiteheads and I think it's unclogging my pores. Blackheads haven't changed though.

3. Skin tone is a lot better and redmarks are fading although I contribute that to my anti candida diet.

I have been taking DIM for perhaps 4-5 days. So far, I notice that the few acne on my back went away, but as far as my face... eh.

I don't notice less oil.

I can't say I have less acne or anything but i don't have a whole load of new ones popping up either.

I'm about to give up on the idea that ANYTHING works on my face...

I don't mean to rain on anyone's parade, many ppl have had very good results, but for me the Jury is still out. I'll give it time.

Has anyone here tried the Activamune DIM? I have it right now but am sort of scared to take it because of all this breakout talk.

it doesn't seem to be doing wonders for me, as well...

i think it was a tad over hyped, and not enough people did any research about it...

my skin isn't worse or better it was just ineffective but not harmful.

theonly supplement that seems to noticeable make a positive difference for my skin is zinc.

i think its helped a bit with my oil, but by and large, no.

what it is doing is, as far as i can tell, severely reducing my acne.

over a weekend after taking dim, a cyst on my lower cheek came and went. ive smoked pot and ate the gnarlyest griesiest foods i could get my hands on, and ive had maybe 3 itty bitty little whiteheads.

i have what i would call dietary acne tho, so that might make a difference.

But don't you have menstrual symptoms similar to the others who took it with success? From what I read estrogen dominance seems to be associated with fairly severe PMS and heavy bleeding, etc.

I don't think it was over hyped anymore than anything else ever is here. I think that some people jumped on the bandwagon blindly as they do.

It seems that it's worked for a handfull of people and not worked for a lot of people. However the handfull of people are very adamant that DIM is a universal cure as long as you take it correctly...
