DIM Complex (Diindolylmethane)
It's pretty impressive to read in Swanson's product description that one of these DIM 100 mg. capsules will provide equivalent vital nutrients as eating several pounds of cruciferous vegetables.
In the interest of optimum health, I don't think it's a good idea to omit lots of fresh vegetables from one's daily diet. I eat some cruciferous vegetables every day, and over a week's time, I eat a good quantity of quite a few of them (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, radishes, etc., etc.). That being said, I still take a DIM 100 mg. capsules once or twice every day to fortify my cruciferous vegetable nutrition AND very importantly as positive nourishment for a healthy prostate.
It is also a known fact that for men, what's good for the prostate is also good for the hair --- both the thickness and having a full, youthful hairline. Saw Palmetto, Zinc, Pumpkin Seeds, Vitamin F (Alpha Linolenic Acid from Flaxseed Oil), Grapeseed Extract, Rosemary, and Green Tea all are contributors to my own personal healthy prostate / thick healthy hair daily regimen. As a scientist, I like to attack a situation from every possible angle.
This Swanson Ultra DIM Complex 100 mg. capsule product produces positively as part of my prostate and hair program. I like it and recommend it. Works for me.

FEELS WEAKER THAN 2010-2011s Product
I have been purchasing this product from Swansons since 2010. I BELIEVE STRONGLY that this is a WEAKER product than it once was when I originally started consuming it in 2010.
When taken as directed, my urine no longer has the tell-tale orange discoloration typically caused by a high-quality DIM supplement, such was was caused by the 2010-2011 Swansons DIM product. Aside from the orange urine, or lack thereof, I feel a lack of therapeutic effects from this product, although of course, this could all be in my head (placebo effect or lack thereof)

My doctor recommends 100mg/day this is 25 mg of DIM. Tricky wording.

I am eating healthier these days, but not perfectly. I think this product is helping me lose a little weight and belly fat without any side effects. I wish they sold bigger bottles.

Great for women in their 40-50's
I noticed that as soon as I turned 40 I was gaining weight in my mid section even though my diet and exercise hadn't changed. I read that it may be due to hormones and that DIM could help regulate the hormones. After taking DIM for a couple of weeks it seems like my pants are easier to button.

I started menopause last year, and I didn't have major hot flashes. Instead I was overheated from the time I woke up, until the time I went to bed . I started DIM Complex about a month ago, and now I feel great! I don't have the heat problem anymore, and my hormones seem better regulated. I'm 51 years old but feel like I'm 30 again. (with the same energy) I wholeheartedly recommend this product.

Easier than 2 pounds of broccoli
This is a good way for me to get the benefits of a lot more vegetables than I could eat in a day.

love this DIM. It is made from BioDim, a product of BioResponse which uses a micro-encapsulation process. This process makes the DIM much more absorbable in the gut. Great Value! Only wish it was available in larger quantity bottles.

The biggest improvement in my health I've noticed while using this supplement is the quality of sound sleep. I will continue to take this supplement and update my review.

Under "Other Ingredients," the first ingredient is calcium carbonate. I called Swanson as to the amount of calcium in each calcium. There is 100 mg per capsule. This should be disclosed on the label and isn't. I personally don't need any more calcium in my diet. I've been trying to keep it around 1000 mg as a male.

I have taken the dim complex for a little while now. I feel healthy overall and it's nice to know that this supplement helps me to get all of the veggies that I wouldn't normally eat on a daily basis. And the value is amazing! Thanks Swanson!
