DHT and Hair Loss
Dihyrotestosterone (DHT) is a steroid hormone similar to testosterone, yet more powerful. The manufacturing process involves the conversion of testosterone into DHT by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase (5-AR).
Dermatologists and research scientists specializing in hair loss have discovered that DHT molecules can spread into the interior of hair follicle cells and bind with androgen receptors. This can speed up the rate of hair loss in men who are genetically predisposed to baldness.
Our bodies tend to struggle with converting testosterone into many other testosterone by-products. The body tends to favor DHT conversion most which leads to elevated DHT blood levels collecting in the scalp causing hair loss. It's not the total amount of testosterone, but the amount being converted into DHT which is the important factor.
The ratio of testosterone:estrogen (t:e) matters more for hair health than the total amount of either hormone. For men, hair loss can be caused by a drop of testosterone or an increase in estrogen. At the end of the day, if your ratio is imbalanced you're susceptible to balding. The increase of hair loss in men should come as no surprise. With the current state of most first-world diets, men's testosterone levels today are 22% lower than men of the same age 30 years ago.
What is in charge of regulating all of these hormones? Your endocrine system. More specifically, your thyroid. An underactive thyroid coincides with a lower-than-desired t:e ratio which leads to higher DHT and inevitably male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia).
Procerin's proprietary formulation effectively blocks the chemical reaction at the cellular level that causes testosterone to be converted to DHT. By reducing the presence of this harmful by-product, the hair on your scalp is no longer under constant attack from the ravaging effects of DHT. Balance is restored to your body's own natural hair growth.
