- DIM balances estrogen hormone levels. – DIM normalizes estrogen levels most women suffer from due to foods and environmental toxins like plastic and car fumes.
- DIM reverses a condition called estrogen dominance. – When the body produces little or no progesterone hormone to counter the effects of estrogen, the condition is called estrogen dominance. Taking DIM helps in managing estrogen dominance.
- DIM improves fertility. – Hormonal imbalance is one of the causes of infertility. Balanced estrogen levels are a perfect way to increase chances of conceiving where hormonal imbalance is the cause.

- DIM controls Hormonal Acne – Hormonal acne (especially in women) starts with high testosterone. Taking DIM means you are addressing the internal cause of hormonal acne – better than applying acne creams.
- DIM controls Testosterone Levels – This is common in PCOS. Can cause facial hair growth, depression, acne
- DIM may prevent breast cancer – 80% of breast cancers are caused by high levels of bad estrogen. This type of breast cancer is called estrogen receptor (ER) breast cancer.
- DIM Shrinks Uterus Fibroids – Like we just saw on breast cancer, fibroids grow bigger and faster when bad estrogen levels are high. Fibroids feed on higher than normal estrogen levels.
- DIM prevents Breast cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, some types of colon cancer & prostrate cancer in men – There is a lot of research showing DIM may help prevent these types of cancer.
- DIM helps control menopause symptoms – During fertility years, our body produces a type of estrogen called estriol (the good estrogen). During menopause, the body produces the bad type (the one that we said causes fibroids, cancers, etc.) called ESTRONE. Taking DIM helps lower the bad estrogen. Taking DIM can help with menopause symptoms like weight gain, hot flashes, mood swings, etc.
- Take DIM with Milk Thistle for Liver detox & Endometriosis: Taking DIM with another supplement called milk thistle has been shown to reduce the severity of endometriosis.
So, the benefits of taking DIM are so many, that every woman can benefit from it. For me, the added advantage of making it easier to lose weight/fat and controlling PMS are good enough for me.
Everyone is unique, so are our needs. One person may want to take DIM for PCOS, another person may take it for acne.
It is one supplement every woman should have in their supplement stack!
