Dihydrotestosterone is a hormone produced from testosterone in the prostate gland, testicles, adrenal glands and hair follicles, and the more DHT-testosterone produced, the more vulnerable you become to hair loss.
In some patients with a genetic predisposition to hair loss, a group of hormones called androgens interferes with the growth cycle of the hair. These androgenic hormone-testosterone, Androsteinedione, and Dihydrotestosterone (DHT)- are dominant hormones in men, but are present in women to a lesser degree. Andro-genetic alopecia is a common form of hair loss in both men and women. In men, this condition is also known as male-pattern baldness. Hair is lost in a well-defined pattern, beginning above both temples. Over time, the hairline recedes to form a characteristic "M" shape. But while testosterone is at the core of the balding process, dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is now thought to be the main culprit. DHT, a derivative of the male hormone testosterone, is the enemy of hair follicles on your head. Simply put, under certain conditions DHT wants those follicles dead.
The most accepted explanation is that adrenergic receptors on hair follicles, where hairs actually grow from, get activated by a hormone called dihydrotestosterone. When these receptors are activated, the hairs grow more slowly and the hairs that do grow get thinner. Hair follicles that are sensitive to DHT begin to miniaturize, shortening the lifespan of each hair follicle affected. Eventually, these affected follicles stop producing cosmetically acceptable hair DHT Blockers are natural group of herbs that has the ability to block the formation of the DHT which is a transformed form of testosterone. This group contain also the famous drug; PROPECIA.
Forbidding DHT from attaching to its preferred receptors in the hair follicles, Inhibiting the production of the enzyme 5 alpha reductase which converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, consumption of natural DHT blocking herbs , reducing cholesterol which is responsible for the production of the enzyme 5 alpha reductase, are all factors that help reducing the production of DHT. Also the added Vitamins and minerals are critical for a healthy hair growth and reviving, and all of those need are added to our formula.
