If you’ve ever wondered how DHT binds to androgen receptors, this article explains exactly how it works.
Preventing DHT from binding with scalp hair follicles is actually the key to preventing male hair loss. Here’s why, and how to do it…
Testosterone is converted to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) — a more potent anabolic hormone. DHT binds to receptors in the scalp hair follicles causing hair loss. But what is the reason testosterone is converted to DHT?
Saw Palmetto is one of the most popular natural treatments for hair loss and with just a quick search online you can see thousands of articles about it. But does it really work? Is there any science backing up the cult following surrounding this plant?
Nettle extract has been shown to reverse prostate enlargement in European studies. In a study on prostate health, Hartmann et al (1996) concluded that nettle extract partially blocks an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase. This enzyme converts testosterone to DHT (dihydrotestosterone). They also found that nettle inhibits the binding of DHT to attachment sites on the prostate membrane.
Since DHT is known to cause hair loss, Nettle may be a effective natural treatment for hair loss.
DHT is known to be the cause of male pattern hair loss. But it’s actually what DHT does to your hair follicles that causes the hair loss. Fixing that damage is the key to regrowing your hair. Here’s how…
Reducing or blocking scalp androgen receptors is possibly the best way to treat male pattern hair loss because it means we can reduce the damaging effect of DHT on the hair without losing the anabolic benefits of DHT.
DHT causes hair loss. Why then do some men have high DHT levels and no hair loss? Here’s why…
99% of doctors who treat hair loss will tell you that DHT is the cause of male pattern baldness. This is because research has repeatedly shown that reducing DHT slows down, stops or even (in some rare cases) reverses hair loss. But there’s a big problem with this theory…
DHT is known to cause hair loss when it binds to receptors in the scalp hair follicles. But rather than reducing DHT (which is beneficial in other areas of the body) we should instead try to prevent it from binding to receptors in the scalp (reduce scalp sensitivity to DHT). Here’s how it can be done…
It might be worth reconsidering everything you’ve read about DHT and hair loss. Because there’s another hormone that may be far more important. Cortisol hormone might, in fact, be a much more important factor in the male pattern hair loss equation. I realize that may contradict much of what you’ve read before, but bear with […]
Hair loss is probably one of the main issues men have when it comes to their appearance. It is estimated that almost fifty million men and women suffer from hair loss which is not only detrimental to their appearance but also their self-esteem. Most studies suggest that the best way to fight hair loss is […]
Among family history, anemia and thyroid conditions, DHT is one of the most frequent causes of male pattern baldness. Alopecia is a widespread, troublesome condition that affects the well-being and self-confidence of over 30 million middle-aged U.S. men. DHT-related alopecia is a hormonal disorder, and we will now look more into its mechanisms in order […]
Pygeum is an extract from the bark of Prunus Africana known in English as the African Plum Tree and has become popular in the last decades due to studies showing its anti-androgenic effects.
The main androgen hormone secreted in the body is testosterone but in order to be carried to tissue such as that in the brain or the skin, testosterone bonds with the enzyme 5-alpha reductase and produces DHT. stress is linked to hair loss is because stress causes the release of cortisol hormone, which increases adrenaline, […]
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Albert Einstein Here’s a question for you: Did you know that eunuchs never lose their hair? A eunuch is a man who has been castrated. And here’s another question for you: Have you ever used a hair supplement, hair loss shampoo or […]
Today we will go over some of the foods that block DHT, which is proven to be a major cause of hair loss. The foods are split into 3 different groups. Foods that are high in Zinc, foods that are high in Biotin, and foods that are high in Phytosterols. Zinc is a mineral in […]
DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is an androgen hormone synthesized by the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase in the testes, adrenal glands and hair follicles. DHT blocks nutrient absorption in the hair follicle and “suffocates” them, which causes the follicles to shrink and eventually die. This is usually reversible and hair starts growing back once DHT levels have settled following treatment […]
Creatine is a type of acid that occurs naturally in the human body (like in all vertebrates) and helps supply energy to organs and systems, particularly to muscle. It is biosynthesized in the kidneys and liver with the help of the GATM enzyme, and about 95% of all creatine in your body is found in […]
Hi Chris Does your e-book explain how to reduce testosterone levels?? I have high testosterone levels (hormonal imbalance) can your ebook still help me??? Please do let me know either way so I can place an order. Thank you No, but it does explain how to reduce DHT levels. DHT is the by-product of testosterone, […]
Since DHT is directly involved with testosterone, testicles, prostate, etc. getting rid of DHT would affect your sexual functioning, correct? Isn’t that why all those hair loss medications have impotence as a side effect? How do your techniques normalize DHT levels while maintaining normal sexual functioning, rather than getting rid of DHT altogether? Thank you. […]
Hi I was searching for a good shampoo when I came across your ebook. My question is do you think your technique can help someone who is genetically predisposed to hair loss? I am a 26 year old woman, and all the women in my family had fine thin hair from a young age and […]
I have some questions about DHT. 1. Is this DHT necessary for our bodies? if yes then if we remove it, will it have any side effects? I am asking beacause somewhere I read DHT blocker’s may reduce semen in men. 2. Once we remove DHT compleetly, will it appear again? I’m asking because can […]
How can I remove my DHT and balance hormones? In the short-term you can reduce DHT levels by taking a saw palmetto supplement — see my hair loss treatments page for more information. However in the long-term there are several things you should do for optimal hormonal balance. These are: Improve the efficiency of your […]
You say that the effect of DHT is a reduction of the diameter of the hair follicle and hair shaft. My hair shaft is as thick as it's always been. Does this mean that my hair loss is not caused by DHT?
It is likely that DHT is a factor in your hair loss. From my experience you are likely to notice loss of hair numbers before you start to notice the thinning of individual hairs; however it is likely that you will start to notice the thinning of individual hairs in time. As a male with […]
Thanks for your question. The answer to this is a little more complex than you might think. There are foods that you can consume that inhibit the conversion of testosterone into DHT. But really, you don’t want to have to do that. Ideally you wouldn’t need to. The three factors that lead to excess DHT
