DIM powder is a molecule that is named after its structure, two indole groups attached to a methane group. It is commonly found in broccoli and holds promise as being a molecule for anti-cancer effects and as an aromatase inhibitor.
Diindolylmethane also seems to promote a healthy balance of testosterone in the body. Testosterone supports energy, promotes a happy mood, and helps maintain a healthy libido. In addition, Zegligs pointed out that DIM may have anti-aging effects and may help promote lean body mass. Combining exercise can increase muscle mass. These benefits are speculative, but more research is needed to confirm the validity of these claims.

How to Take Diindolylmethane
Recommended dosage, active amounts, other details
A supplemental dose of approximately 100mg DIM has been noted to alter urinary estrogens in a manner thought to reflect less estrogenicity.
Although the consumption of cruciferous vegetables produces DIM in the body, you must eat a lot of raw vegetables every day to get the benefits of DIM.
Therefore, pure DIM in absorbable form has been developed and sold as a dietary supplement.
DIM supplements with a maximum dose of 200 mg showed no adverse reactions. However, according to Zeligs, mild nausea and headache occur at a dose of 300 mg.
Diindole methane may also interact with certain drugs.
Before supplementing DIM, you should first consult your healthcare practitioner.
