    Yes we are! There are just a lot of logs in the fire right now for NP, so for Sam to pull the trigger on something new, there has to be a lot of demand.

    So...anyone else?? Bueller?


  2. trust me i will buy my fair share!

  3. I'd be very interested in I3C, not DIM so much. Just bought some NOW, but would obviously prefer buying from you NP guys directly

    Anyone considering I3C over DIM should read the following link then make your own mind up how you want to proceed further

    they can supply a VITAMIN RESEARCH PRODUCTS BIODIM 75MG PER CAPSULE.2 per day will last 30 days and priced at 25.95

    cheers, i don't know why but when i click that link it takes me somewhere else - i googled nutricentre and it works. go figure.

    Still pretty expensive though, especially considering the low dose... a bulk Nutraplanet bioavailable DIM would be just the ticket, but i may pick up some of this in the meantime as that's still the cheapest i've seen in the uk.

    DIM/I3C Safety Information
    ...I already posted a quote from Dinoiii explaining why I3C > DIM. Assuming you know who he is, I think that should be enough.

    Edit: To each their own though

    I actually prefer both of them in one formula, or stacked. Together, they provide a more complete set of benefits than either alone, in my opinion.

    so the link to the safety information on I3C hasnt put you off then

    just how do both compounds together give a more complete set of benefits, please explain

    I3C is a more balanced compound. While DIM is its most active metabolite, the other metabolites also have unique biological functions. This is why I prefer to take both I3C and DIM to obtain the full spectrum of benefits.

    There are so many safety warnings circulating around that, if one were to take them all at face value, once would not touch any supplements. Probably a bit exaggerated, but I can show you so-called studies that claim more than 2gr of vitamin C daily is hazardous. Dr. Linus Pauling, double Nobel-Laureate, did more than 10gr daily for decades and lived well past 90 years.

    Anyway, as we all know, apart from helping neutralize harmful estrogen metabolites by triggering so-called Phase I and Phase II detoxifying enzymes, indole-3-carbinol (I3C) also favourably improves the ratio of "good" estrogens to "bad". In particular, it raises the levels of the beneficial 2-hydroxyestrone compared to that of the harmful 16-hydroxyestrone. On its part, Di-indolyl-methane (DIM), the I3C metabolite, specifically addresses the potentially harmful estrogen metabolite called 4-hydroxyestrone. Both I3C and DIM may induce deceased-cell apoptosis and trigger DNA repair. This is why I prefer to take them both to get balanced, rather than lopsided, support.
    In the end, though, it all boils down to: "to each his own"!

    Oh not you, I meant the other guy. It seemed like he hadn't read the previous posts in the thread.



    Off topic, but I see you are now the USPLabs Product Educator. Trusting your knowledge, it would be awesome if you could help us all figure out Prime, what exactly is in it and how it works.

    I'm sure Ike's got the brain gears in motion. By watching the feedback from testers, we may be able to get a better understanding of how it works. For example, I've noticed quite a few people mentioning an Alpha-Male feeling (Even my person friend), despite the bloodwork done by USP on their 12 athletes that showed no increase in T levels. I think it might affect certain people differently, depending on their physical state/training experience.

  16. Best time to take dim -before bed or with evening meal or any other meal?
