What Is DHT and How does It cause Hair Loss?

DHT stands for dihydrotestosterone. This is the active form of the male hormone testosterone. It has been suggested that high DHT levels in genetically predisposed hair follicles initiate baldness. It is this chemical conversion from testosterone to dihydrotestosterone that is blocked by saw palmetto, which is the active ingredient in Biostim. Biostim blocks the formation of active testosterone and allows those hairs predisposed to inactivity to become active again and make new hairs.

We recommend the use of Biostim, in all cases for best results.
