*PERIMENOPAUSE USERS*: FORMULA CHANGE NO LONGER WORKS FOR ME
on October 15, 2015
This used to be a wonderful product, I would have given it 5 stars if this was a little over a year ago, but it's very different than it used to be. I started using DIM Plus in 2013 for perimenopause symptoms which, for me, include high estrogen/low progesterone. It was wonderful, changed my life and I was feeling great! But somewhere around early 2014 they changed the formula. The pills went from green to white, and I noticed that it wasn't really working as well for me anymore. I didn't realize then that it was the formula change. They added soy to the formulation, which WAS NOT in it before (see pics of old and new labels; soy wreaks havoc on my body and I check out ingredients carefully, I knew it didn't used to be in here or I never would have bought it). This was recently brought to my attention and now, it makes perfect sense. I actually started taking an extra capsule when I found it wasn't working as well, which made things even worse. How I wish I knew about the soy addition, I could have found another DIM product with no soy a long time ago and saved myself a lot of grief and discomfort.
This is also not a pure DIM supplement, If you read the label, actual DIM is only 25% of the "proprietary blend", so I have no idea how much actual DIM is even in this product. I switched to https://smile.amazon.com/Best-Naturals-Complex-Capsule-Count/dp/B00SVMB3NW/ref=sr_1_5_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1473455979&sr=1-5&keywords=dim which has no soy or titanium dioxide (this is a new addition, as well, and is why the pills are white now), and 100mg of actual DIM in each pill.
