Not a lot of DIM in this

I purchased this DIM because it as "bio-responsive" thinking that meant better. After using it for nearly a year and still having hot flashes and symptoms of perimenopause..I started to wonder why other women praised DIM so much. I started looking on the internet and found that the suggested dosage of diindolylmethane (DIM) per day is 100 - 200 mg for women to relief symptoms. Then I noticed that DIM-Plus has 100 mg of diindolylmethane complex per 2 capsules. It then says that only 25% of that complex per serving is actually diindolylmethane. That means per capsule, you get 12.5 mg of diindolylmethane and their suggested dosage is 2 capsules for a total of only 25mg diindolylmethane. Great...no wonder I'm still so hot all the time. I should be taking 8 a day to get the suggested 100 mg for women. I wonder if those women who reviewed this product as working great were using it more for PMS or early perimenopause since it worked at such a low dose. I think for myself, I need something stronger.

Good but not for me

This has helped my night sweats and breast tenderness but gives me horrible intestinal gas. The gas pains go way up into my shoulders even. That side effect is not worth the benefits. Maybe I need a lower dosage.

Stomach grew, hair fell out.

About 3 weeks into this my stomach looked 3-4 months pregnant! My face broke out terrible like I was a teen again. I realized that seaweed stimulates thyroid and I had all the symptoms of thyroid problems by week 4. My eyebrows thinnned out, my hair was falling out, I was cold all the time and just plain old tired. It was then that I realized that it could be the fucothin. I stopped it and within 2 weeks my stomach went down, my hair stopped falling out. I felt so much better and my energy returned. It's great that it works for some but I think it's not for everyone.

Smell made me sick!

Posted on Dec 18, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

I don't know what this stuff is supposed to smell like since this is my first time purchasing D-Ribose but....once I opened the foil top, it was horrid! Smelled like Model Glue (extreme chemical smell). I closed the lid but could still smell it with the lid closed from 5 feet away. Husband came home and noticed it as well. We put the whole jar, with the lid closed, into a ziplock bag and put it in the trash but we could still smell it. Had to take it out the trash can. Didn't even try it because something that smells like that shouldn't be going inside my body. Is it supposed to smell that bad? What a waste of $25.48
