Inhibition of 5alpha-reductase in rat prostate reveals differential regulation of androgen-response gene expression by testosterone and dihydrotestosterone
This was a surprising finding indicating certain androgens, particularly testosterone and androstenedione, appear to have more of an effect on blood vessel development compared to dihydrotestosterone
The concentration of FSH, LH, testosterone and dihydrotestosterone
were measured using RIA.
The steroid is relatively cheap and is an easy-to-detect drug, which like other anabolic steroids, is designed to mimic the effects of the male sex hormones testosterone and dihydrotestosterone
Its oily berries contain essential fatty acids and plant sterols to help inhibit the production of dihydrotestosterone
A second group of mice was castrated at 10 weeks of age, allowed to recover for 10 days, treated with dihydrotestosterone
(DHT) or placebo via a subdermal implant, and sacrificed 2 weeks later.
Viviscal Man contains a higher level of AminoMar C and also offers zinc and flaxseed to combat the effects of dihydrotestosterone
, or DHT, which has been singled out as a cause of androgenetic alopecia, otherwise known as male pattern baldness.
In a genetically succeptible person whose hair follicles are continually exposed to dihydrotestosterone
(DHT), the angen (growth phase) becomes gradually shorter, which leads to a finer less coloured shorter hair follicle.
In humans, normal development of the testes relies on testosterone and dihydrotestosterone
Although the mechanism of action has yet to be proven, it is suggested that the active marine complex is related to the production of dihydrotestosterone
in the hair follicle, which is known to cause hair loss.
In addition, she added, "I have started to do DHT or dihydrotestosterone
because it can catch idiopathic cases.
Other androgens include dihydrotestosterone
(DHT), dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and DHEA sulfate (DHEA-S).
