What are side effects of DHT blockers?

Increase Estradiol: Testosterone is converted into both Dht (dihydrotestosterone) & e2 (estradiol). Think of these two as balanced on opposite ends of seesaw.

When does DHT (dihydrotestosterone) cream work for growing beard?

When does DHT (dihydrotestosterone) cream work for growing beard?

Unknown: First of all, Dht is not available in any topical form in this country - at least not legally - so if someone is offering such a cream, who knows what's actually in it?

I found several sites claiming green tea reduces DHT but it was based on this same study! See comment:. ...Read more

NO: "All natural DHT blockers" is a worthless product sold exclusively to gullible people who lack the technical background to recognize an absurd scam. Save your money. But it will not affect your hormones or libido just as it will not grow any hair. ...Read more
