Facts About DIM and Women's Health:
What is DIM?
Diindolylmethane (DIM‚ in short) is the principal breakdown product of indole 3-carbinol (I3C)‚ the phytochemical found in cruciferous vegetables like cabbage‚ cauliflower‚ broccoli‚ brussel sprouts‚ kale‚ collards‚ mustard greens‚ radishes‚ watercress‚ and turnips. DIM‚ has been shown in scientific studies to reduce the risk of breast‚ cervical and other estrogen-driven cancers cancer by helping the body to make a better balance of the “good estrogen” (2-hydroxy-estrone) compared to the “bad estrogen” (16-alpha-hydroxy-estrone).
Royal Maca Plus for Women™ with DIM is an ideal product combining the hormone-regulating effects of maca with the estrogen metabolite regulating effect of DIM. It relieves PMS and painful periods‚ and alleviates peri-menopausal‚ menopausal and postmenopausal symptoms. Maca & DIM together help your body make healthy estrogen metabolites and a healthy progesterone level. Progesterone is important for healthy hormonal function and helps provide protection against cell proliferation in estrogen-sensitive tissue. There are many scientific studies which show that indole 3-carbinol and DIM can improve the ratio of healthy estrogen metabolites produced in 87% of women.
Who can benefit from taking Royal Maca Plus with DIM for Women?
Most women experiencing hormonal imbalances associated with menstruation‚ PMS‚ peri-menopause‚ menopause or post menopause may benefit from Royal Maca Plus for Women with a family history of breast cancer or other estrogen-dependent cancers and women who have been tested and have learned that they have an unhealthy ratio of “good estrogen” to “bad estrogen” will be especially interested.
The following quotations have been taken from All About DIM by Michael A. Zeligs‚ MD & A. Scott Connelly‚ MD.
Can DIM be a substitute for hormone replacement therapy (HRT)?
DIM has no estrogenic activity in itself. Although it helps to convert estrogen to useful metabolites‚ it does not directly mimic or replace estrogen. Using DIM will promote a more desirable estrogen metabolism‚ but it will not make up for estrogen deficiency. However combining organic maca root with DIM will produce a better metabolism and better utilization of a woman's estrogen. Maca alone however‚ can be successfully used as a hormone balancer‚ reducing or eliminating hot flashes‚ vaginal dryness‚ depression due to low estrogen‚ supporting a healthy libido‚ without any of the dangerous side effects of estrogen supplementation (HRT). The Maca-DIM combination is particularly helpful for both reducing the risk of developing an estrogen-dependent cancer as well as with relieving hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms. Furthermore‚ this combination supports the health of the adrenal glands‚ thyroid‚ pancreas and neurotransmitter hormone production‚ including melatonin.
DIM helps women optimize their estrogen metabolism.
What makes optimal estrogen metabolism so important for women?
Optimal estrogen metabolism in women is defined by the ample production of "good" estrogen metabolites. These metabolites help lower the risk of cancer and decrease the symptoms of estrogen over-stimulation‚ or dominance-symptoms of which include breast tenderness‚ rapidly growing uterine fibroid tumors‚ uterine cervix problems (as seen with abnormal PAP smears) and endometriosis‚ a painful condition caused by persistent uterine tissue growing in abnormal locations within the abdomen.
Anti-oxidant properties of “good estrogen” metabolites.
Finally‚ the "good" estrogen metabolites have important anti-oxidant activity exceeding the potency of Vitamin E. The antioxidant activity of the "good" estrogen metabolites may explain why estrogen in women can slow the course of some age-related diseases. These include heart disease‚ arthritis‚ and cancer.
"Good estrogen" metabolites effect just metabolism and libido.
Having higher levels of the "good" estrogen metabolites is also important for sustaining an active fat-burning metabolism. "Good" metabolites help fat cells release stored fat. They are important in preserving the activity of the small amount of testosterone present in all women. This provides additional support fat utilization‚ as well as support for mood and libido. Healthy levels of testosterone in women may also help to reduce the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.
How does proper hormonal balance help with weight loss?
The "good" estrogen metabolites along with increased free testosterone promoted by DIM increased fat mobilization and a fat-burning metabolism. The effects of free testosterone in women and men are similar. In each case‚ testosterone promotes the building of new protein. When hormonal balance shifts to favor building new proteins‚ metabolite rate is increased and fat metabolism is promoted. Part of the protein-building effect of testosterone is to gear up the cellular enzymes needed to burn fat. Fat contains the stored energy needed to support formation of new proteins as well as the fuel for sustained aerobic exercise. Together with exercise DIM provides the best hormonal balance to create the protein machinery for active fat utilization.
The good estrogen metabolites also directly facilitate the release of stored fat in a number of ways. First‚ these metabolites assist the specific fat-burning hormones called catecholamines that are produced during exercise to release stored fat. These released fatty acids circulate in the blood stream as a primary energy source. Second‚ the "good" estrogen metabolites actually can increase the number of protein receptors for the catecholamines that appear on the surface of fat cells. As circulating catecholamines released during exercise occupy these receptors‚ stored fat is more actively released from fat cells. DIM and a hormonal balance favoring the "good" estrogen metabolites assists catecholamines in supporting a more active fat-burning metabolism.

Overall Rating for Royal Maca Plus for Women with DIM - 90 Vegetarian Capsules
By Mary Alberts
The best of all my supplements!
If I could only take one supplement, it would be Royal Maca Plus for Women by Whole World Botanicals. When I stop taking this supplement, I notice a difference. After about a week without it, I will get symptoms of estrogen dominance. I have Lyme Disease and am 52 years old, yet my hormones are doing great. I'd be miserable without this supplement! I only need to take one per day.
Organic maca, no additives, not irradiated, stops symptoms of estrogen dominance.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.

Marlyn J Baker on 5/17/2015
I notice that the product has 100 mg LESS Maca Root than the last time I ordered it approx. 60 days ago, and DIM has been added. Why the change in formula?A

Marlyn, the formula is up to the discretion of the manufacturer, Whole World Botanicals. We suggest contacting the manufacturer as they should have someone on hand with these details available for you :)

I have the double whammy of being post-menopause and also have hypoparathyroidism. I am 53. My hormones have crashed and I struggle just to find the energy to make it through the day. I notice this product also supports the thyroid. Could you clarify for me how the DIM affects the thyroid? Cruciferous veggies are good for menopause, however horrible for low thyroid. I'm trying to find something to support BOTH thyroid and menopause. I suffer from hot flashes, night sweats, cold flashes and as a result, don't sleep very well. Thank you! ~debA
PureFormulas on 5/04/2015
Deborah, we cannot clarify that inforamtion because there is so much to take into consideration when doing so. Everyone breaks down, absorbs, and reacts to nutrients differently, and only your health care provider, that is familiar with your needs, would be able to say how this may affect you. Please contact your health care provider. Thank you :)
