Dihydrotestosterone, more commonly known as DHT, is an important and potent hormone within the body. DHT is a derivative of testosterone and is important to fetal development, being three times stronger than testosterone. As a person ages, the need for DHT diminishes, and for some people the DHT will stick to a person's hair follicles causing a weakening of the hair follicle. This causes male pattern baldness. Fortunately, there are natural ways to combat the effects of DHT through different homeopathic supplements.
Take natural supplements to block DHT. The most popular natural supplements used to block DHT are saw palmetto, pumpkin seed, stinging nettle and grape seed extract.
Determine the amount of supplemental pills or gel caps needed to be taken daily to achieve the desired effect of blocking DHT by speaking to an herbalist.
Place each supplement product within a seven-day pillbox that has a morning and evening section for each day. This will allow you to routinely take your supplements to naturally block DHT daily.
Pay attention to your supplements. Some supplements will have you take the product on an empty stomach while others may require you to take with a meal. Make sure you always read the directions and recommendations of the product you are taking.
