I've been experiencing a number of benefits from taking your DIM capsules, and there is a definite decline in my estrogen levels. I'm beginning to understand that as an older man, I was estrogen dominant! Now I'm getting my old self back!

Estrogen detoxification for men and women
Jonathan Wright MD spoke at the Monte Carlo Anti-Aging Conference about a clinical trial in which I3C (indole-3-carbinol) remised stage 2 and 3 cervical cancer in nearly 50% of women, within only a 12-week period. He also noted that over 40% of men’s prostate problems respond positively to I3C within a similar period. His simple explanation is that I3C and DIM (di-indolylmethane- its more potent relation) convert bad estrogen into good estrogen.
Therefore, we may conclude that with an increasing amount of estrogen type substances in the food and water supply, that these extracts of DIM and I3C, which are found in the Brassica vegetables, e.g. cabbages, broccoli and Brussel sprouts etc, are important preventative supplements.
DIM-Pro is an advanced formula designed to balance the estrogens found in your body, increasing "good" estrogens and decreasing "bad" carcinogenic estrogens.
Each capsule of DIM-Pro contains 15 mg. of DIM, which is the most active ingredient found in the Brassica family of foods. Because DIM is so much more potent than I3C (about ten times as active), you need much less. DIM is a better choice in other ways too. I3C needs to be "activated" by the digestive tract. It more readily degrades when exposed to air, light, and high temperatures. But DIM does not need to be activated and is much more stable.
Specifically, it appears that the potent circulating estrogen- estradiol is assisted by DIM to be excreted by the liver. (It is believed that estradiol may have carcinogenic properties when its levels become out of balance with the other estrogens or testosterone).
DIM-Pro capsules also contain 10 mg. of lycopene, the powerful, phytonutrient from tomatoes. Each capsule contains the same amount of lycopene that actually shrunk prostate tumors in the men scheduled for prostate surgery.
In addition, DIM-Pro also contains 15 mg. of chasteberry extract, which has been shown to be highly effective in balancing estrogen levels. Chasteberry extract protects progesterone, which aids as a counterbalance to estrogen.
Levels of estradiol have an interest for both women and men. Firstly, hormone replacement therapies involving estrogens are known to increase the risk of cancer. This may be related to the higher prevalence of estradiol, but this risk is also evident for men- because testosterone and other androgens can convert into estradiol, by the action of aromatase. (Note that recent evidence about the risk of prostate cancer is being centred on the levels of estradiol in men, and less upon the actions of DHT).
With the additional synergy of ingredients in DIM-Pro, dosages for the majority of healthy/ concerned individuals are one or two capsules 2 or 3 times daily.
For treatment purposes, dosages may need to be raised to three capsules 3 or 4 times daily. At high dosages, DIM and I3C may induce flatulence and bloating, but a reduction or stoppage of dosing will subdue the effects. Therefore, in order to avoid these embarrassing side-effects always build up to high dosages slowly. (Please note this product should not be used by pregnant or lactating women).
Note: Your estradiol and estrone levels can be monitored using the hormone test kit.
