      Product Label

        Promotes Healthy Estrogen Metabolism - ENHANCED ABSORPTION - PATENTED

        The Benefits of DIM-plus™
        DIM-plus ™ contains diindolylmethane, a phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and kale. Unlike other plant nutrient such as soy isoflavones, diindolylmethane has unique hormonal benefits. It supports the activity of enzymes that improve estrogen metabolism. Scientific research shows diindolylmethane increases the level of "favorable" estrogens (2-hydroxy-estrogen) while reducing the level of "less favorable" estrogens (16-hydroxyestrogen)

        The DIM-plus ™ Difference

        Patented Complex: DIM-plus ™ contains BioResponse-DM™ and its patented, enhanced bioavailability delivery system for diindolylmethane.

        Enhanced Absorption:
        The bioavailability of DIM-plus™ is superior to regular diindolylmethane and its unstable precursor, indole-3-carbinol (l3C). With DIM-plus ™ you are assured a stabilized dose and consistent benefit from each capsule.

        Extra Cruciferous Vegetables:
        DIM-plus ™ also contains the unique Protectamins® cruciferous vegetable blend (spinach, cabbage, and concentrated broccoli powders) for added phytonutrients.

      Directions
      (Women): Take two capsules daily with food. (Men): Take two capsules twice daily with food. For intensive use (Women & Men) take up to double the dose.

      I take this because I suffered with a lot of excess estrogen problems like fibroid tumors and heavy periods and rosy cheeks. I started taking a supplement similar but was twice the price. Had a major affect on my fibroid tumors(basically non existent now) but was getting expensive. So I found this supplement by Natures Way and works great and for a great price. I still take this 3 weeks out of the month to keep estrogen under control as well as natural progesterone creme.

      I thought these were going to be a cure to my moodiness the 2 weeks before my period but I just had to stop taking these because they gave me terrible headaches. I took these for 2 weeks trying to give them benefit of the doubt but I couldn't take the headaches anymore. I also noticed I grew white fuzzy hair on my face. These just didn't work for me.

        Comments about Natures Way DIM-Plus - 120 Capsules:

        I have used this product for months now, with significantly reduced hot flashes. With my last order, the color of the capsule changed from green to white and it no longer works! The company claims they had to change the cover of the capsule to protect the ingredients from light. I think the change affects the absorptiof of the DIM (which is key to effectiveness). I will no longer use this!

        Comments about Natures Way DIM-Plus - 120 Capsules:

        I used this product to help with estrogen dominance issues, mainly to reduce heavy monthly bleeding and breast cysts. I have been researching the causes of both conditions and have read a number of books by Dr. John Lee, MD on the topic. I developed other health related conditions as a result of heavy bleeding including low ferritin iron stores in my blood. I learned that xeno-estrogens or synthetic estrogens from plastic water bottles, birth control pills, pesticides and so forth, were most likely to blame for my health issues. I learned that Diindolylmethane (DIM) helps the liver to convert and detoxify excess estrogens. I also have been using Source Natural's progesterone cream from the Vitamin Shoppe to balance my estrogen levels as well as taking chewable Nature's Plus Iron supplements also purchased from the Vitamin Shoppe. My iron ferritin levels have gone up 50% since last year and after only two months of DIM supplements along with progesterone cream my bleeding has been reduced by 66%!!

        After 10 days of using DIM supplements and progesterone my energy levels greatly improved by about 70%!! I sleep much better and seldom have night sweats any more. I will continue to take both supplements for at least another few months to see if my energy levels will continue to rise. I am extremely pleased with the DIM supplements sold from the Vitamin Shoppe. Also one side note, DIM supplements may cause orange or brown urine shortly after use as excess estrogen is being excreted from the body. I have read that this is normal according to medical doctors. Also my teenage son's acne greatly improved by about 80% while taking DIM supplements from the Vitamin Shoppe.

            Since starting on this product, I no longer have fibrocystic breasts which has been a problem for me for over 20 years. I no longer have breast tenderness. My PMS symptoms have gotten way better. I now sleep all through the night and deeply. I no longer breakout. My skin is looking plump again. I no longer have the few "whisker" type hairs on my chin. When I would lay down on my back and feel my abdomen, I could feel my fibroids; now I feel nothing!! The melasma that I've battled for over 20 years looks lighter and is starting to break up. I am truly amazed by this product. It has been a miracle worker for me. I wish I had this product twenty years ago. I can never be without it!!!

              Amazing product. My extremely aggressive, cystic acne was destroying my face. Dim-plus literally started working right away. My family doesn't even recognize me.

              Unfortunately the price went up, so I will be buying it elsewhere.

              I have had so much trouble with female troubles, I have tried several things to correct the dryness. I use hormone replacement but after to many years it just didnt work any more. I was in so much pain. Then a lady told me about DIM-PLUS, I started taking it, and I couldnt believe it. After just a week or less, it has helped me so much. I would recommend it, I am 62 and will stick with this.

                  I took this product because I have very low testosterone. When I re-tested my hormones, after taking DIM for 6 months, I found my estrogen was depleted. Broccoli, and other foods in the same family (ingredients in DIM) do raise testosterone by using estrogen. Perfect if your estrogen is high or you are male. I wasn't aware of this until I took it and re-tested. Great product and probably one of the best DIM products, but not for everyone.

                    Helpful with pre-menopause symptoms. Have taken away my headaches and irritability. I needed more at a heavier weight to ease symptoms. Since I've lost weight, I'm down to two a day. Vital to my sanity!

                    I've not seen any side effects and have been taking this for about two years.

                      I was hoping since my doctor put my on a testosterone replacement therapy regimine,even though my testosterone levels(in the blood,anyway) are normal,I heard that this was used by bodybuilders to get the most out of their "free-floating" testosterone in their bodies so they could build muscle better, safer and easier and also co-ordinate all the hormones that work together, and give me more energy.

                      I felt nothing at all. Having chronic fatigue for years. the first thing I feel I should notice is energy improvement if any natural product is going to help me. Sadly it did not. And further reading on bodybuilding boards showed no one either male or female had any positive experience with this. I also couldn't find any positive reviews outside of this website. Maybe the dosage is too weak. I cant say why it didn't work.I also used this with DHEA, and then Rhodiola extract. Nothing from any of them. At least I was hoping to get leaner or gain more muscle tissue if it wouldn't increase my energy. But again, nothing. I even had a friend who was on 500ml's a week of testosterone who tried this just as a general hormone vitalizer and he said the same thing I did.

                        Are your hot flashes more than just "flashes". Of all the products out there, this is the only one that works consistently for me and provides relief for more than an hour. Plus, I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, and all the other "menopause" products out there generate hormones, which actually feed the cancer in 75% of cases, including mine. This was the only "hot flash" pill left on my list once my doctors told me all the ones that would feed the cancer. Of all the brands of DIM I've tried, this one works best for me. Worth a try. And clear anything that affects estrogen or progesterone levels with your doctor. You want to balance them by lowering the high one, not raising the low one. Raising either hormone level could be increasing the "food" in your body for cancer cells. Take care! Stay comfy! Stay healthy! <3 (And Vitamin Shoppe has the best price and availability!)

                          I follow a strict super clean diet, have MS, am busy like most working moms. I noramlly keep my weight at 135 to 140 quite easily but all of a sudden doing nothing differently I put on 7 or 8 lbs around the middle(what seemed like overnight) I read a few things that made me think it was hormonal and night sweats had started all of a sudden (I'm only 38). I heard on Dr OZ that every woman should be taking something called DIM, so I tried this DIM-Plus as it looked like the best buy and best reviews in Vit Shoppe. It stopped the night sweats so fast, almost instantly and the extra weight is getting there. Then my mom tells me she went into menopause at 42, and my greatgrandmother had 5 kids and her periods stopped right after that at 35! Thanks for the warning mom, you gotta tell your daughters these things! LOL! Great alternative to synthetic hormones or birth control or whatever a doc might have to perscribe.

                              I thought these were going to be a cure to my moodiness the 2 weeks before my period but I just had to stop taking these because they gave me terrible headaches. I took these for 2 weeks trying to give them benefit of the doubt but I couldn't take the headaches anymore. I also noticed I grew white fuzzy hair on my face. These just didn't work for me.

                                I am a 7 year breast ca. survivor. I first heard about this product while reading comments from ca. survivors who could not take their chemo pills because of side effects. I completed my 5 year course of the chemo pill and decided to start using the Dim-plus for healthy maintenance. So far so good. No complaints about this product! I will continue to use it from now on!

                                  I hit menopause and my thin, athletic frame CHANGED! Using bioidentical HRT, I got 'thick' in the middle. My compounding pharmacist recommended DIM (a broccoli derivative) and said "give it four or five weeks." I've been using DIM-Plus for a few years now and my figure is fantastic. It helps metabolize estrogen and that is also a good thing as a benefit against the moderate risks of using estrogen. I highly recommend this product.

                                    I doubted it worked, got off of it and suffered the consequences. I will never stop taking it again! Based on a doctor's recommendation I began using DIM in 2005 when I started on a weight training program - 1 capsule in the morning and 1 in the evening. Five years later, in 2010, I went into menopause and the hot flashes started, but they were manageable. Then a few months ago, to save money, I quit using DIM (after 7 years!) because I figured it probably didn't work anyway since I was having hot flashes. Later on I began having a nasty vaginal drainage and my hot flashes were hotter and more frequent. I was miserable and just about to call my doctor when I realized it had been about six weeks since I had taken DIM-Plus, enough time to get out of my system and wreak havoc if, indeed, it really did work. I immediately ordered it and after about two weeks of doubling up, taking two capsules in the morning and two in the evening, the discharge disappeared and my hot flashes became manageable again. I've since reduced my dosage back to one capsule in the morning and one in the evening and that has maintained the effects. I will never again doubt that it works!

                                        I take two pills every morning with 2 pills of Calcium D Glucarate. I didn't notice any clearing of my skin with this until I added the CDG. Now I'm clearing up and my hormones seems to be getting under control. No bad side effects at all! I'm happy!

                                            This was recommended to me by the health food clerk as an alternative to hormones. HAPPY I took her advice! and I have several women at work using also!

                                                I would recommend this product to all the women out there. Whether you feel you need it or not it is best at regulating our hormones. Why wait until you get the hot flashes, prepare to avoid them all together and mood swings no more. I have been taking this product for the past year and love it. I take two at dinner and two before retiring for the night.

                                                        I wish more Doctor's would recommend this product for women. It really helps reduce the excess estrogen that gets stored as fat in the mid section. I noticed a difference after a month. I suggest taking this with a daily dose of fiber as well.

                                                                My MD, who is open to herbal remedies, actually recommended this product.I was getting a lot of bloating and swelling, as well as facial redness. After two weeks on DIM Plus, my bloating visibly reduced by as much as 2 inches. Also my facial redness is now under control. This product has made a dramatic difference in my life. It contains nutrients that are present in a lot of the vegetables that we often do not eat enough of. I heartily recommend this to anyone from peri to post menopausal.

                                                                    I take this because I suffered with a lot of excess estrogen problems like fibroid tumors and heavy periods and rosy cheeks. I started taking a supplement similar but was twice the price. Had a major affect on my fibroid tumors(basically non existent now) but was getting expensive. So I found this supplement by Natures Way and works great and for a great price. I still take this 3 weeks out of the month to keep estrogen under control as well as natural progesterone creme.

                                                                    >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2010-08-13

Breast cancer surgery (lumpectomy)8 mos. ago. Now taking DimPlus.

                                                                    I've been taking Dim-Plus by Natures Way for about two or three years now and haven't seen any negative or disturbing results. I suppose it's helping me. I was advised to take it by one of my doctors. I would definitely consider reading more about it if I were you. You should consider speaking to your doctor about it as well. (If your doctor is open minded to "alternative" health, mind, body, etc. then perhaps you will get a go ahead. Although, it's possible your doctor might not be aware of this product or the scientific research that has been done on it either. You might have to do a bit more homework on your own and consider whether or not you feel ready to take it despite your doctor's recommendation. Try searching for info on this: Diindolylmethane, or DIM for short. I would have given you the links but the Vitamin Shoppe will not allow it in the response. Sorry!!
                                                                    Good luck Barb, Wish you the best!!"

This supplement naturally reduces inflammation in the body as well as supplies your hormones with nutrients to help balance them. I don't believe it increases or decreases any of the hormones in your body. But if you have too much estrogen in your body, it will give your body nutrients to help correct that imbalance.

I wouldn't there would be any benefit for your moods or bloating either. The expected benefit from DIM-plus is to help block the conversion of testosterone into estrogen.

The muscles are important but at my age that vitality of my youth is priority. I have had chronic fatigue syndrom for 15 yrs they cant diagnose thru dozens of blood tests, so im going to do it myself on my own and take command of my future. Enough depending on doctors who are afraid to speak out for fear of lawsuits! But I dont want to get the side effects that sometimes occur with anabolic supplements like gyno, testicular atrophy, or any of the more dangerous things too much estrogen in the body of a male can bring. Anyone with knowlege or experience can offer some advice? I heard from a body builder that this product combined with DHEA and DIM... WILL DO WONDERS FOR THE BODYBUILDER WHO CHOOSES TO PUT "Anabolics" INTO HIS BODY TO TAKE HIM TO HIS MAX POTENTIAL.

                                                                    First, let me recommend "The Testosterone Syndrome" by Dr. Shippen. This short book will become an important part of your reference library. Regarding DHEAs, you will find that yes, they help with the hormone replacement process--unless--you have an overabundance, as most of us middle-aged men do of enzymes that convert DHEAs and Testosterone into unwanted Estrogens. Enter DIM, which stops this unhealthy conversion.

                                                                    Regarding your Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: As this is a syndrome, it can have several causes, incl. candidiasis, EBV, HBLV, CMV, food allergies and hypoglycemia. The first thing I would do is investigate candida and food allergies. A good naturopath can be of help. A short list of treatments can be found in Joel Wallach's "Let's Play Doctor", and since you are taking control of your own health, you'll want to read, "Healing is Voltage" by Jerry Tennant.
