If you’re experiencing hirsutism, hair thinning, or hair loss, then it’s quite possible you’re metabolizing the testosterone in your body into DHT, a more potent androgen metabolite, through the enzyme 5-alpha reductase enzymatic pathway.
Thinning hair on your head, and hirsutism can be a result of this testosterone metabolism.
Higher than normal insulin levels can promote this more potent androgenic pathway.
While you’re working on a better diet and better stress management, you might try one of our favorite healing plants – saw palmetto.
This amazing palm-shaped plant can block this pathway. Studies have shown that it can block the uptake of DHT and testosterone into tissues by up to 40%.
Saw Palmetto can:
- stop hair loss
- stop dark, coarse hair growth
- improve sex drive
- promote weight loss
- improve the pain response
- lower prolactin levels
- support vaginal integrity
Saw palmetto is in the 5-Element System nutrients, Element #1, as one of the key ingredients to help women find hormone balance. Learn more about the 5-Element System for Hormone Balance here.
