    Have just got some 200mg DIM capsules delivered, and im wondering if any of you learned folks have any experience with it? My query relates mainly to the timing of it, but also if there are any known interactions, i.e. what not to take it with etc etc

    My thinking is 1 cap an hour before bed with a tbsp of coconut oil.

    Is 1 cap an adequate enough dose? I would probably go with 1 cap with breakfast, and another with dinner. However, i wouldnt take it with meals that already contain naturally occuring indole-3-carbinol, found in Brassica vegetables. Instead i would take it with meals NOT containing indole-3-carbinol, to spread exposure to indole-3-carbinol and DIM throughout the day.

    Hi mate,

    Let us know how you get on with these. It just so happens I was researching DIM this very afternoon.

    I have a sneaky feeling my free testoterone levels are running low at the moment and am thinking of combining these with Protodioscin (Bulgarian Tribulus) to see if this makes any difference.

    From all the research - tongkat ali seems to have some profound claims.
    Pricey stuff too!

    Maybe MP can source in the future.
    Will look to adding that in future.
    I suppose the mojority of these herbs seem only to have a real effect if you are defficiant. Maybe thats why there are so many varying results.

    Yeah apparently its classed as medicine now. Not sure its illegal though, as its available through certain "grey" channels. Im not going to say exactly where, obviously, but its not difficult to obtain. Of course you cannot guarantee its quality like you can when purchasing from MP, which is a shame as ive grown used to having top quality, trusted supps through the door...
    Will let you know how i get on...
