DHT is an androgen that is made by converting testosterone into DHT via 5ar reductase.

It is responsible for multiple androgenic physical effects during puberty, and 5ar reductase is also associated with several bodily functions, such as regulating the circadian rhythm of the body.

There are 3 isoforms of DHT which are located in different tissues of the body,

Type 1: present in most tissues

Type 2: present in genital tissues (non skin) and hair. Found in the prostate, and liver.

Type 3: Wide tissue distribution, including the brain, skin, ovary, small intestine, and kidney.

DHT inhibitors

DHT is responsible for physical effects such as acne, bottom growth, and hair loss. When these effects are an undesirable element of transition (or leftover effects from first puberty) you may want to use pharmaceutical or natural methods to lower your DHT.

If you want more information about reducing erections or bottom growth, visit the article on NOS and bottom growth, then go to the section on “NOS inhibitors”. I believe that NO reduction combined with DHT reduction could be a potent inhibitor of bottom growth.

Pharmaceutical 5ar inhibitors on the market include finasteride and dutasteride.

Natural 5ar/DHT inhibitors include:
