How to block DHT (for Beautiful, Thicker Lashes and Brows)
First, we need to explain DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) and how it impacts hair loss in women and men.
What is DHT?
DHT stands for Dihydrotestosterone, and it is derived from the testosterone hormone. DHT is an androgen that the human body produces and is responsible for critical body functions, including male maturation. DHT is present in both men and women, but it has higher levels in males than women. Nonetheless, according to the National Library of Medicine , at any given time, 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States are affected by hormonal hair loss, which often comes later in life.
How is DHT Produced?
DHT is converted naturally out of testosterone when the hormone in the bloodstream reaches areas where 5a-reductase is produced. Once DHT is derived from testosterone by the 5a-reductase catalyst, the DHT stays put in the tissues where it was created, which includes male genitalia, but also brain, skin, liver and hair follicles that can result in hair loss.
Does DHT Impact Women?
Under normal conditions, women have present testosterone at a slight level, but any hormonal imbalance (for example, thyroid dysfunction or menopause) can cause DHT- triggered hair loss in women. This includes all hair types (scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows) as DHT stays within a tissue where hair follicles are located.
What Ingredients Address Issues with DHT Impact on Hair Loss?
- Natural Grape & Pumpkin Seed Extracts
Protects hair follicles when the hormone DHT raids their roots through the bloodstream. DHT is a significant barrier to hair follicle growth. Therefore, the extracts overcome the effect of DHT.
- Trifolium Pratense (Clover) Flower Extract
Red Clover (Trifolium Pratense) is a natural source of biochanin A, a potent antioxidant isoflavone. Biochanin A quenches inflammation and neutralizes 5AR that converts our body's testosterone into hair and lash damaging DHT molecules, thus helping to conserve existing hair and lashes.
- Panax Ginseng Root Extract
Acts as an anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing agent while rejuvenating the skin around eyelashes and eyebrows.
