DHT Blockers
It is now widely accepted that the main culprit in the hair loss of 95% of us is DHT. Therefore the principal aspect of the strategy to stop hair loss is to block dht.

Blocking dht can be accomplished by
:

  • Keeping dht from attaching to the receptors in the hair follicles.
  • Reducing the production of DHT.
  • Inhibiting the production of the enzyme 5 alpha reductase which converts testosterone into DHT.
  • Reducing the substances that can produce the enzyme 5 alpha reductase like cholesterol.

In this section we designate as a "DHT blocker" any product that achieves any of the objectives above. The importance of the DHT blockers in this section is to keep DHT from damaging the hair follicles. This is imperative to stopping long term hair loss. Damaged hair follicles will begin producing less hair, thinner hair until they stop producing hair completely.

Propecia

It is important to note that Propecia the most popular drug sold to stop hair loss is a DHT blocker. Propecia basically works by lowering the levels of DHT in the body by blocking the enzyme 5 alpha reductase. We must keep in mind that Propecia is a drug and it has some side effects. For men, the main side effect is a decrease in libido, dificulty achieving an erection and a decrease in the amount of semen released. Propecia is contraindicated for use in women. Pregnant women should not even handle a broken pill due to severe risks to the fetus.

The DHT blockers in this section are all natural remedies. They offer you a natural way to block DHT without the adverse side effects. Many of these products can be safely used by women to block DHT. Note for women: If you are pregnant or lactating always consult your phyisician before taking any type of supplement. For a review of the best DHT blockers for women, see the Best Products for Women DHT section.

Saw Palmetto - Herbal DHT Blocker
This is probably the best known natural dht blocker. Studies have shown that saw palmetto is an effective anti-androgen. It acts in a similar way that propecia does. Firstly it lowers levels of DHT in the body by blocking 5 alpha-reductase. Secondly Saw Palmetto block receptor sites on cell membranes required for cells to absorb DHT.

Studies have been performed on the use of Saw palmetto in the treatment of benign prostatic disease which similarly to Androgenetic alopecia also depends on the production of dihydrotestosterone. All of the studies that have been performed to date show that Saw palmetto is an effective antiandrogen and has shown conclusively to be effective in the treatment of benign prostratic disease.

One may assume from this that since Saw palmetto is an effective antiandrogen and is used in the treatment of prostatic disease then it may also be effective in the treatment of Androgenetic alopecia. Saw palmetto is a potent herbal dht blocker.

The vast majority of people taking Saw palmetto have no apparent adverse side effects. It is tolerated very well and this has been confirmed during clinical investigations using Saw palmetto to treat begign prostate hyperplasia. Minor side effects can include stomach irritation and feelings of indigestion. In part, these side effects can be avoided by not taking Saw palmetto on an empty stomach.

Pygeum- Herbal DHT Blocker
The active constituents of Pygeum extract include phytosterols that inhibit the production of dht. Pygeum also has ingredients that reduce prolacting levels and block the accumulation of cholesterol in the prostate. Prolactin is believed to increase the uptake of testosterone by the prostate, and cholesterol increases binding sites for dht. Pygeum basically reduces the levels of DHT in the blood and reduces the number of sites where the dht can attach. This includes reducing the number of hair follicles where dht would bind. When combined with Saw Palmetto it seems to have a truly synergetic effect on the prevention of hair loss.

Nettles - Herbal DHT Blocker
Clinical studies have confirmed stinging nettle's benefit to men in reducing symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland). A concentrated root extract of nettle is sometimes combined with saw palmetto (Serenoa repens) and the bark of the pygeum evergreen tree (Pygeum africanum) to treat the early stages of the disease. The herbal combination helps to increase the urinary volume and maximize the rate of urine flow. German research suggests that active ingredients in the nettle root may reduce prostate swelling. Again, since androgenetic alopecia is caused by the same factors (DHT) as prostatic hyperplasia. Therefore this combination of ingredients is also extremelly effective in warding off hair loss.

Pumpkin Seed Oil- DHT Natural Remedy
Have been demonstrated to inhibit DHT formation through the inhibitory effect on 5-alpha-reductase activity. Inhibition of DHT formation is also known to be beneficial for hair growth if you are experiencing age-related hair loss. Pumpkin seed oil breaks down dht via the liver.

Green Tea - Herbal DHT Blocker
Green Tea is an extremely powerful anti-oxidant. It also reduces dht and cholesterol. It is believed that drinking the tea or taking a pill extract can stop hair loss and facilitate re-growth. Green tea contains flavonols and catechins, substances that have been found to have significant antioxidant, antitumor, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties.

How Green Tea helps agains hair loss

  • Reduces dht and cholesterol
  • Anti-aging due to its powerful anti-oxidant properties.
  • Promotes hair growth and health.

Additional benefits that Green Tea may provide

  • Prevents heart disease
  • Promotes weight-loss
  • Cancer Protection
  • Increased Fertility

Emu Oil DHT Blocker
Research has shown that emu oil contains a high level of linolenic acid which further research has shown to be an efficient antiandrogen. Linolenic acid is a potent 5 alpha reductase inhibitor and may be usefull in the treatment of disorders related to the hormone Dihydrotestosterone. Linolenic Acid has been suggested to be of use in the disorders such as benign prostratic hyperplasma, acne androgenetic alopecia and hirsuitism.

So in summary, it is now believed that emu oil may not only halt hairloss by blocking dht, but it may actually promote regrowth. The oil is non-greasy at it can be applied directly to the scalp at night.

Soy Isoflavones- Natural DHT Remedies
In the case of hair loss, Soy Isoflavones are useful because they seem to regulate bad cholesterol. The reduction of overall cholesterol is important because cholesterol can produce the enzyme 5 alpha reductase which then turns testosterone into dht. Therefore, isoflavones have dht blocking properties.

Soy has been shown to provide many health benefits including bone maintenance, hormonal regulation in women (especially during menopause) and nutritional support for cardiovascular health and prostate health.

This is a particularly good dht blocker for women since it offers other advantages like reducing the risk of breast and uterine cancer. They also offer protection from osteoporosis. Finally, there is also evidence that soy may provide an easier transition into post-menopausal years for women.

Beta Sitosterols-Natural DHT Remedies
Contains a mixture of phytersterols. Phytersterols (sterols) have anti-androgenic properties. This is the substance that is able to block DHT. Beta Sitosterols acutally contains more sterols than saw palmeto. In addition, Beta Sitosterols also lower cholesterol levels which also inhibit the production of DHT. Therefore it is a very powerful DHT blocker and since it is a completely natural product, it does not have any adverse side effects.

In severals studies, Beta Sitosterols have been proven as effective as many drugs in treating prostate problems. Since these prostate problems are also caused by DHT, it is easy to see that Beta Sitosterols can be a powerful weapon in warding off hair loss.

L-Lysine
While L-Lysine is NOT a DHT blocker. It may make dht blockers more effective. Researchers have found that adding a supplementation of L-Lysine can make drugs like propecia more effective. Since propecia is a DHT inhibitor, as all the natural products mentioned in this page. The addition of a L-Lysine supplement can make these products also more effective. Studies has shown that L-Lysine combined with a DHT inhibitor can promote hair growth in people suffering from androgenetic alopecia.
