DIM is a natural phytochemical found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, and kale. In recent years it has garnered attention from the medical community for its ability to promote healthy cell replication and death in tissues throughout the body, thereby supporting overall tissue health.
Pomegranate Extract is packed with antioxidants, just like the fruit it comes from. Antioxidants can help the body to maintain cell and tissue health by reducing the damage caused by oxidative stress.
I've been taking DiM daily for almost a month. Trying to reboot my system's health.It seems to be having a slow, but steady positive effect on my energy levels.This one is 32 cents and comes with three power house plants ... black pepper, broccoli, and pomegranate.Type 1 brown bottle with easy off lid .... tamper resistant plastic which worked when I opened the bottlePaper and plastic freshness seal.Lots of cotton60 capsules doesn't fill much of the bottle.
This seems to be a good quality DIM blend so far.- Capsules are easy to swallow- No odd aftertaste or ill effects- Price/Value is very good- Claims NSF and is 3rd party lab tested via the Clean Label Project (however I haven't seen the COA yet)I haven't had any problem taking these, but I'm only giving 4 stars for now until I have a chance to view a COA from the company for this product. If/when I receive that, I'll revise my review accordingly.**My only cautionary note is regarding the inclusion of Black Pepper Extract / Piperine. If you take ANY other supplements with Piperine included, be very, very careful you do not exceed 15-20mg of Piperine a day. There's been a big bandwagon of supplement makers including Piperine in their products to "increase absorption." But this added Piperine everywhere causes a potentially harmful cumulative effect. If everyone puts this in their products, you end up getting far too much daily Piperine cumulatively (which should never exceed more than 15-20mg a day). Secondly, Piperine is *not* necessarily healthy, only GRAS (generally recognized as safe). It actually irritates the stomach and destroys gastric epithelial cells, and it's a potent gut irritant potentially causing gut permeability, even in smaller doses. Piperine also causes a potentially dangerous increase in calcium concentration. And despite being touted for its ability to increase bioavailability, it actually *reduces* absorption of Beta-carotene and Vitamin E and can cause a loss of potassium. This is really NOT something that should be added to ANY supplements. It should be left to the consumer to buy and take separately if they want to try it. So if you use any supps with added Piperine (like these capsules), keep a very close eye on your total daily Piperine intake and try to keep it under 20mg a day.
I've been using DIM for quite some time, with myriad benefits. I like that this one also has broccoli and pomegranate, so I get even more benefits. They're easy to swallow, don't irritate my stomach, and the price is incredibly reasonable. I'm very happy!
I take DIM every day to help keep my hormones balanced and I can tell when I miss a day. I wanted these because they have good ingredients including pomegranate extract. I like pomegranate because for some reason, it just makes me feel good but there are actual tangible benefits too, as it is an antioxidant.These capsules also contain broccoli seed extract and black pepper powder which helps with absorption. Given the apparent care with which theyre made, Im happy with the quality and so far they seem to be working fine with no negative effects.
I love this blend. It is easy to take and helps balance hormone levels naturally. It contains broccoli, pomegranite, DIM, black pepper. Perfect.
