Rewarded Review

Literally the day I turned 35 a bunch of crazy things started happening. My skin broke out, I gained weight, got hot flashes and I had a period that lasted a month that my doctor determined was due to fibroids which appeared out of NOWHERE. I did some research and purchased the NOW Indole-3-Carbinol. It has been amazing. Almost immediately the pain stopped and so did the bleeding. No more hot flashes, and my skin has completely gone back to normal. I have always eaten a very healthy diet and was really confused why I gained weight and even tried to crash diet to lose it which did NOT work. Then when I started this supplement I dropped 5 lbs in less than 2 weeks while back to eating normally. So I am convinced all of my symptoms were due to a spike in estrogen which this supplement has curbed. I'm so pleased and will be taking this product forever and recommend it to EVERYONE.

I like it ! Indole-3-carbinol is also used for fibromyalgia, tumors inside the voice box (laryngeal papillomatosis) caused by a virus, tumors inside the respiratory tract (respiratory papillomatosis) caused by a virus, abnormal cell growth in the cervix (cervical dysplasia), and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Some people use indole-3-carbinol to balance hormone levels, “detoxify” the intestines and liver, and to support the immune system.

Amazing product to help my husband manage his moodiness. He’s been taking this for a few years now and his emotions have been the most level it’s ever been. We started noticing improvements just after a few months of use. Combine this with Host Defense Stress Decompress and his work anxiety has dropped significantly.

This is great quality I3C that I take daily. I pair it with DIM. I am a 42 year old female and was struggling with cystic acne due to hormone imbalance. I began to take natures way DIM and this Indole 3 carbinol, taking the recommended dosages of each daily. It took a couple of weeks to clear up my skin, but since consistently taking the two supplements I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. From my personal experience I have taken many NOW brand supplements and have been pleased with them — I would recommend this supplement.

First of all for ladies it helps to drive down hot flashes. It won't remove them completely but it will reduce them substantially. It as well helps with hormonal/cystic acne. If you start using Indole you might not get any cystic acne again. Give it a try. For men it is beneficial after age of 50 and it has beneficial properties for prostate. These caps are quite big, have no taste, but you need to take them with plenty of liquid in order to get them down.

As someone with two COMT homozygous SNPs, I may struggle to clear toxic estrogen metabolites. Supplementing I3C is great for this situation. It is particularly good to know that Now Foods are the ones behind this product, as their quality is consistent across the majority (if not all) of their product line. It is also great to see a true I3C product, and not a DIM product, as I3C has been shown to be more beneficial in the literature. Hype around DIM apparently was driven by the author of the patent, and it is actually inferior to I3C clinically.

A good product with a sulfur compound called indole-3-carbinol (I3C). In the stomach, I3C is converted to DIM (diindolylmethane) and other additional compounds that neutralize free radicals and promote proper detoxification. DIM (diindolylmethane) is taken as a remedy for hormonal problems including acne, menopausal symptoms, prostate problems, and certain forms of cancer. Researchers believe that diindolylmethane affects the level of estrogen in the body.

For those not tolerating DIM. The advantage of I3C is that it's the precursor to DIM, so the body will make it's own 'version' of DIM. Definitely helps with hot flashes, nightsweats and the like in pre- or post menopause. The ingredients are derived from cruciferous vegetables, which can also be added to the diet to further support balancing hormonal health. As always, Now is a good quality brand. Large bottle, needed as at times up to 10 per day may be needed to aleviate symptoms.

Very good product! I absolutely love the quality of that brand and this package is not an exception. The taste is fine especially if you use it with water. The size of 60 capsules would be enough for 1-2 months. Depends on frequency you use it. Works really good for me so I can highly recommend that product.

Great product lived up to expectations! Delivered ahead of schedule by the postman. Convenient and reliable service when placing an order. The product was well packaged, protected and arrived in exemplary condition with no complaints. I plan to continue using iHerb in the future and recommend it to everyone. I made three orders for iHerb at the same time. All three orders arrived ahead of schedule in perfect safety!
