My order of Nature's Way DIM has just arrived. On the box it says take 2x2 capsules per day. But since I only ordered the one box (I didn't want to waste money on something that didn't work) can I get away with less or do I need 4 capsules a day to gauge this product's effectiveness? How much do others take?

I started out with 2x2 a day and since have gone down to 1x2 a day to see if it still helps.

I still hesitate to promote DIM as a libido changer...

simply because I did, apparently Zim has, some others say no, but Libido is like whisps of smoke it is so hard to get a handle on, you have to be really in touch with your body (STOP TOUCHING YOURSELF!!! THAT ISN"T WHAT I MEANT I do know I have had a significant increase, mainly a response to visual stimulation that was not present before, and a dramatic increase in morning wood, I damn well grind alot now. But it cycles, it is like my body adjusts and stabilizes which is good and normal.

Also, DIM primarily is very effective at reducing propecia induced weight gain, bloating, and puffiness.

But, I started off 2x2, but because Im lazy only use it 1X2 now for 3 months, and it continues to be just as effective. I would suggest you to just save your money and try 1X2 it should be sufficient, if you can afford a bottle a month, hey continue 2x2 it was definately more effective, but the reduction is minimal to me.

I think DIM has upped my libido a little, ive certainly felt a bit hornier since starting. It has helped my erections as well, i would say there close to normal to pre- propecia levels. I feel like i have a bit more energy as well and can concentrate a bit better. Im currently taking 2 tablets twice a day.

Cjjd777 any idea as to how long the half-life of DIM is?

Improving estrogen metabolism with DIM results in direct and indirect support for more efficient weight training. Use of DIM supplements provides the first estrogen-management system for men and women. "Good" estrogen metabolites directly support muscle well-being through their antioxidant action. This chapter will explore the use of DIM in creating a hormonal balance for the most successful weight-training and physical-conditioning programs.


Haven't found where to get it online for uk try a different brand name, doesn't have to be Nature's Way.

2.2mg/lb is the recommended dose, though some suggest it is probably more like 3mg/lb.. this can explain differing weights and responses, can take up to twice the dose on the label, as it says on the label for "intensive use" but step up to this, it works with your your liver, because the liver breaksdown estrogen, so you don't want to overexert liver function by jumping to twice the dose right away .also don't eat grapefruit it inhibits estrogen breakdown.

could not find info on half-life, unfortunately, but I would guess 6-8hrs
