DIM (DIINDOLYLMETHANE) by BioResponse, 150 mg, 60 capsules

MEN ~ BOOST TESTOSTERONE AND BLOCK ESTROGEN

Are you looking for a non-prescription, effective anti-estrogen that raises your levels free testosterone?

BioResponse DIM is an outstanding, patented version of diindolylmethane. DIM 150 is safe for men and has no side-effects, as long as it is taken as recommended. Men should take one 150mg capsules per day. If your in training, you may want to increase that to the full dosage of two casules (300mg) per day.

Testosterone converts to estrogen naturally then breaks down into "bad"and "good" estrogen metabolites. The bad to good ratio of estrogen metabolites is increasesd by DIM, this results in lowering the bad metabolite. Results differ for men than for women.

DIM blocks the estrogen receptors activity, interferring with them. This raises the ratio of testosterone to estrogen. With DIM causeing more testosterone to be freed, this means a higher sex drive, better moods, muscle building and bone-strengthening from workouts. DIM may reduce the chance of an enlarged prostate because of estrogen presence.

WOMEN ~ IMPROVE ESTROGEN METABOLISM AND STABILIZE ESTROGEN LEVELS 

Are you looking for a non-prescription, effective supplement to stabilize your hormonal levels as you enter menopause?

BioResponse DIM is an outstanding, patented version of diindolylmethane. DIM 150 is safe for women and has no side-effects, as long as it is taken as recommended. Women should use a lower dosage of one half to one capsule (75-150 mg) per day.

Post-menopausal women that take replacement hormones can improve their estrogen metabolism with DIM. Among the other benefits DIM gives women is a lower chance of weight gain and maintain uterine, cervical breast health while decreasing the chances of cancer.

BOTH MEN & WOMEN
Other possible DIM benefits include: the fat burning and the increase of insulin sensitivity (this can help with the uptake of nutrients).

Induction of apoptosis in human prostate cancer cell line, PC3, by 3,3'-diindolylmethane through the mitochondrial pathway “Epidemiological studies have shown a strong correlation between consumption of cruciferous vegetables and a lower risk of prostate cancer. These vegetables contain glucosinolates, which during metabolism give rise to several breakdown products, mainly indole-3-carbinol (I3C), which may be condensed to polymeric products, especially 3,3'-diindolylmethane (DIM). It was previously shown that these indole derivatives have significant inhibitory effects in several human cancer cell lines, which are exerted through induction of apoptosis. We have previously reported that I3C and DIM induce apoptosis in prostate cancer cell line”

All About DIM 

This book answers critical questions concerning both men and women regarding the balance of testosterone and estrogen. Its importance for women lies in proper metabolism of estradiol. Its importance for men is maintaining adequate free testosterone while assuring proper metabolism of excess estrogen.

 


Read excerpts of this book about DIM below

 

“Q: What exactly is Diindolylmethane (DIM)?”

“Diindolylmethane, or DIM for short, is a plant indole—a plant compound with health-promoting properties. DIM and other
plant indoles are found in all cruciferous vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables include cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower. . . . Diindolylmethane DIM and eating cruciferous vegetables increases the specific aerobic metabolism for estrogen, multiplying the chance for estrogen to be brokien down into its beneficial, or ‘good’ estrogen metabolites. . . . When Diindolylmethane DIM increases the ‘good’ estrogen metabolites, there is a simultaneous reduction in the levels of undesirable or “bad” estrogen metabolites. When supplemental Diindolylmethane DIM is taken along with a program of regular exercise, it can help estrogen and testosterone contribute to good physical conditioning. . . . Diindolylmethane DIM contributes to a better metabolism in the most natural way possible by working with your own hormones and adjusting their action to avoid hormonal imbalance.
DIM produces more ‘good’ estrogen metabolites, which compete with testosterone for protein binding, helping to maintain a slightly higher ‘free’ testosterone level. Free testosterone is testosterone that is more active. . . .

“Q: How does Diindolylmethane DIM benefit testosterone activity?”

“Testosterone is also identified as an anabolic hormone due to its ability to promote protein synthesis. Active protein synthesis produces bigger muscles and stronger bones, especially in response to exercise. This process also increases metabolic rate and consumes fat, resulting in a leaner physique. . . . The ‘good’ estrogen metabolites along with increased free testosterone promoted by DIM increase fat mobilization and a fat-burning metabolism.”

Diindolylmethane DIM for Women—Achieving Optimal Estrogen Metabolism

“Breast tenderness, endometriosis, and uterine cervical dysplasia have been shown to improve with DIM supplementation. . . . The use of both DIM and progesterone is recommended for women in their forties who have evidence of progesterone deficiency, such as irregular menstrual periods. DIM can help support natural progesterone production.”

“Q: Can Diindolylmethane DIM supplementation make hormonal replacement therapy (HRT) safer?”

“The proven scientific benefits of DIM make it a logical choice as a dietary supplement for use with HRT.”

“Q: Is testosterone really important in women’s health?”

“While the exact contribution of testosterone to mood and sexual health has been more difficult to define in women who have intact ovaries, it has been shown that testosterone supports physiologic responses in sexual arousal. In studies of mood and depression, testosterone alone or with estrogen was most effective in reducing depression.”

“Q: How does Diindolylmethane DIM “unlock” testosterone?”

“Diindolylmethane DIM promotes a consistent rise in the levels of ‘good’ estrogen metabolites. . . . Even a small increase in the concentration of ‘good’ estrogen metabolites results in higher levels of free testosterone. Even tiny increases in amounts of free testosterone are capable of influencing mood and behavior since the brain is home to a multitude of hormone receptors that can be influenced by testosterone.”

“Q: Does Diindolylmethane DIM make DHEA a safer supplement?”

DIMs action ensures that the estrogen produced from DHEA is metabolized into ‘good’ estrogen metabolites.”

Diindolylmethane DIM for Men—Activating Testosterone

“Diindolylmethane DIM helps to eliminate active estrogen from the male body by promoting its conversion into the ‘good’ estrogen metabolites. These metabolites then free up testosterone by bumping it off the testosterone-binding proteins.”

“Q: Why is optimum hormone balance so important for men?”

“Optimum hormone balance for men is defined by strong testosterone activity and the lowest possible level of unmetabolized estrogen.”

“Q: What role does supplemental Diindolylmethane DIM play in an aging-intervention plan for men?”

“Supplemental Diindolylmethane DIM reduces the effects of unmetabolized estrogen and promotes testosterone action. It does this by maximizing the testosterone-to-estrogen ratio in the body, thus increasing the activity of testosterone. . . . Diindolylmethane DIM can improve mood, fight depression, and support memory. . . . Diindolylmethane DIM also can be used to help address many of the unwanted side effects of estrogen in men—particularly those that occur with the age-related accumulation of estrogen. . . . Diindolylmethane DIM can now be used to reduce the risk of prostate enlargement and promote a healthy prostate. Optimum testosterone-to-estrogen hoemonal balance achieved with the use of Diindolylmethane DIM can help to preserve a youthful urinary tract and prevent age-related prostate growth.”

“Q: Can Diindolylmethane DIM be used with saw palmetto and other dietary support for a healthy prostate?”

“Since DIM is specific in its action to promote a more beneficial metabolism of estrogen, it reduces the contribution of unmetabolized estrogen to age-related prostate gland enlargement.”

Getting Strong and Lean with Diindolylmethane DIM

“Q: Why is DIM in demand by elite male athletes?”

“Diindolylmethane DIM supplementation is the key to eliminating unwanted estrogen in men. For athletes, this means increasing the metabolism of estrogen that is naturally present as well as any estrogen that arises from the use of testosterone prohormone supplements. . . .With DIM use, you should see rapid muscle-building results from your training as well as more efficient reduction in body fat.”

“Q: What is the best way to combine supplemental Diindolylmethane DIM with a plan to build muscle?”

“Diindolylmethane DIM promotes an upward shift in the body’s critical balance between testosterone and estrogen levels. . . . In scientific studies, high testosterone-to-estrogen ratios have been linked to lean body mass, a fat-burning metabolism, and low abdominal obesity.”

“Q: Can Diindolylmethane DIM alone benefit strength training without the additional use of testosterone prohormones?”

“Diindolylmethane DIM provides benefits to male and female athletes, since its estrogen-clearing action occurs whether or not there is increased estrogen production as seen with prohormone use. . . . DIM, by helping to convert estrogen to ‘good’ estrogen metabolites, protects stressed muscle cells and allows more efficient repair and growth.”

“Q: How does better estrogen metabolism results in improved fat metabolism?”

“Diindolylmethane DIM reduces the levels of estradiol, or active estrogen, by promoting its conversion into ‘good’ estrogen metabolites. These ‘good’ estrogen metabolites are fat burners. . . . When Diindolylmethane DIM is used, a second important fat-burning shift in metabolism also occurs—an increase in free testosterone and, consequently, an increase in the testosterone-to-estrogen ratio.”

“Q: Can Diindolylmethane DIM supplements help me lose weight without a strict diet and regular exercise?”

“Diindolylmethane DIM is not a ‘magic bullet’ that cancels out dietary and lifestyle indiscretion. The key to fat loss with DIM is carbohydrate restriction and an emphasis on aerobic exercise. When using Diindolylmethane DIM to assist fat loss, the preferred diet limits carbohydrate intake to loww-glycemic foods, including broccoli, celery, green beans, zucchini, and salad greens. These produce the smallest increase in blood sugar levels. . . . Along with Diindolylmethane DIM supplements, an exercise routine that includes long aerobic workouts will put you solidly in a fat-burning mode and step up your metabolic rate. With Diindolylmethane DIM, you will increase the release of stored fatty acids and speec up your fat loss. . . The goal of fat loss with Diindolylmethane DIM is to preserve muscle mass while reducing body fat with a healthy but carbohydrate-restricted diet.”

“Q: Are Diindolylmethane DIM supplements safe?”

“The earlier research on these phytochemicals as a cancer preventive in animals used huge amounts of Diindolylmethane DIM for many months. Despite the continuous use of these phytochemicals in multiple generations of animals, no safety problems were noted. Recently, DIM was again shown to be safe when it was used successfully to treat chemically induced breast cancer. . . . As with all fat-soluble nutrients, taking absorbable Diindolylmethane DIM supplements with a light meal encourages absorption even more because this group of nutrients requires the activation of bile secretion from the liver to promote absorption.”

“Q: What about the other cruciferous indole, indole-3-carbinol (I3C)?”

“Though used by some people as a dietary supplement, it turns out the I3C is not active in your body until it is converted into Diindolylmethane DIM. Diindolylmethane DIM is formed as I3C combines with itself, in a process that occurs only if just the right amount of stomach acid is present. . . . The usual dose of Diindolylmethane DIM for women is 100 to 200 mg per day taken with food. Women using Diindolylmethane DIM to help with weight loss have used up to 400 mg per day to achieve the greatest support for the burning of stored fat. . . . Bioavailable DIM at 400 mg per day can be of benefit during the first one or two months of weight loss, especially in association with carbohydrate restriction and exercise. . . . The usual dose range of Diindolylmethane DIM for men is 200 to 400 mg per day taken with food. . . . For men involved in a plan of muscular development or fat loss, the dose of Diindolylmethane DIM should be increased to 400 to 500 mg per day.”

“Q: Are there any reported side effects associated with supplemental Diindolylmethane DIM?”

“Some people taking Diindolylmethane DIM have noticed a darkening of their urine to a brownish color. This has been seen when Diindolylmethane DIM is taken by someone who drinks little water throughout the day. This is a normal, harmless occurrence and is not associated with any abnormalities in kidney function or health status.”

“Conclusion”

"Diindolylmethane DIM, the most active dietary indole in cruciferous vegetables, is a healthy stimulus for the beneficial metabolism of estrogen in men and women.”
