5-alpha-reductase inhibitors

Primary Application
For what
Herbs and Botanicals
For whom
This combination contains several botanicals that inhibit 5-alpha-reductase, which is an enzyme that converts testosterone to the more potent DHT. This is a key therapy for the treatment of prostate cancer and also benign prostatic hypertrophy (BHP). It is also appropriate in the treatment of conditions with elevated testosterone levels such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).

I should add that using this frequency to inhibit the conversion of Testosterone to DHT, will obviously not be nullified by any of the metabolic pitfalls mentioned in my previous post. Good job Anton! I, (and I'm quite certain everyone who uses Infopathy) appreciate the extensive and ingenious work you, and your team have done in researching, and developing this site. Thank you for all your efforts, your diligence, and dedication.

Hey there people...it should also be noted that Dihydro-Testosterone(DHT) is also the primary contributor to male pattern baldness. 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors can be found in substances such as Saw Palmetto, Reishi Mushrooms, and even a component found in Green Tea. (a particular Poly-phenol EGCG) As some studies have noted however, Saw Palmetto taken orally is not as effective as it is if applied directly to the scalp. This is due to degradation of the substance by both stomach acids and "first pass liver metabolism."
