    Does it help with estrogen? E2 in particular.

    Dim can raise or lower e2. Depends on the person individual chemistry. I would look for reasons why your levels are low before supplementing with any thing. You need to be evaluate the levels first with the proper testing.

    I have used DIM and I3C for years. I've never heard of it raising E2 levels.

    I have seen it in clinical cases and verified through lab testing.

    I have used I3C for years and like it. I tried DIM more recently and felt like crap (bad fatigue) and stopped it right away. I was thinking about trying it again to see if that was a fluke.

    When evaluating hormone pathways, If certain testing shows that dim is needed then I will recommended. If there is methylation issues then I will address them first before suggesting DIM. People really need to understand the complexity of the biochemistry involved before engaging in certain supplementation.
