I have really high doubts about this article now, and if I were you I would sure for other articles that back up these claims. Saw Palmetto is used to treat E.D. erectile dysfunction, and has no side effects that are a risk to healthy sex drive, lets get that straight.
Secondly, "men feel best when testosterone, DHT, andro., DHEA levels are optimized, thus LOWERING ANDROGEN LEVELS (exactly what you do when you lower DHT spikes). Not only that, saw palmetto is used to help with enlarged prostates, so is nettle root extract.
"without adequate DHT men have no body hair at all"...TOTAL BS. If that were true, many women would be bald, because the level of DHT in women is much much lower, although can still impact their acne due to DHT SPIKES, thus effecting sebum oil production.
All the medications on the market that block/inhibit DHT are all safe for consumption, approved by the FDA to have no ill side effects, none what so ever. Do a simple google search "dht causes baldness" and vast array of articles/forums/blogs about it.
The idea is not to worry about the ejaculation/acne connection, because not only does ejaculation cause acne through DHT spikes it also releases many more hormones, which lead to other ill effects, it isn't just acne that can be harmful from high DHT/hormones.
And for the record, I never read that article, as I can see huge flaws in what you quote from it, that is enough for me not to.
Here is a good break down of DHT on fair follicles.
Using anything to block DHT will only prevent excess oil production, not hair growth. Also, the main reason DHT is damaging unlike testosterone and other T byproducts is the fact that DHT is converted so quickly, unlike testosterone.
Not to mention a ban on androstenedione.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced a crackdown on products containing androstenedione, commonly known as "andro." The products are marketed over the counter as dietary supplements that enhance athletic performance. In the body, androstenedione is converted into testosterone and estrogen.
While ads claim that andro-containing supplements promote increased muscle mass, research has not shown this to be the case. In addition, studies have shown side effects and potential long-term risks; androstenedione poses the same kinds of health risks as anabolic steroids. Given the lack of proven benefits and the risks, the FDA is requesting companies to stop distributing dietary supplements containing androstenedione. The FDA is also encouraging Congress to consider legislation to classify these products as a controlled substance.
Potential Long-Term Risks
For men—shrinkage of testicles, growth of breast tissue, impotence
For women—male pattern baldness, increased facial hair, increased risk for breast cancer and endometrial cancer, blood clots
For youth—acne, early start of puberty, stunted growth
That is a terrible article.
Take a read on the biological effects. Very inconclusive even on high doses.
