Differences between Pharmaceutical and Natural DHT Inhibition


Many wonder what the difference is between pharmaceutical based suppression of 5-alpha reductase (DHT) and nutraceutical based inhibition.

Finasteride (Propecia) decreases the expression of the SRD5A2 gene, that is Steroid 5-{alpha}-reductase type 2. Usually when this gene is under expressed from birth male pseudohermaphroditism can result.

Natural botanical phenolics (plant-based antioxidants) inhibit 5-alpha reductase by interacting with the NADPH binding site. This is basically via oxidation-reduction to protect against free radicals, a completely natural process.

Finasteride on the other hand, forces an enzyme reduction, while plant phenolics perform natural inhbition by a reductive process which is a healthy pathway of scavenging free-radicals. Also finasteride and dutasteride for that matter cause an unnaturally long suppression of the gene. It’s not physiologically natural in anyway.
