    People who are at a normal, healthy weight should take 100 mg per day. Take 200 mg instead if you are overweight or have significant health concerns because of PMS, menopause, chronic inflammation or a family history of cancers. Always speak with your doctor first.

    While seeking the right supplement, look for DIM complex as an active ingredient. Also, some recommend looking for a product that also contains black pepper, which increases absorption.

    Don’t take this if you are currently on a cancer treatment regimen. DIM may interact with one of the medications you’re taking. Women who are pregnant or lactating should avoid this supplement because there is insufficient safety evidence.
