DHT Blocker : Why It Works To Prevent Hair Loss
DHT Blocker: What Is It?
DHT stands for Dihydrotestosterone. DHT is an androgen sex hormone which is made from testosterone. When testostosterone, combines with 5-alpha-reductase, it forms DHT, which can cause baldness, which is why you want to reduce the level of DHT on your scalp.
To reduce DHT in the scalp, many people are treating their scalps and hair with oils and extracts from plants like saw palmetto, rosemary, stinging nettle, and even fungi like the reishi mushroom.
