Are those safe? Some have reported side-effects like decreased cognitive ability after taking saw palmetto long term.

I guess you could say they are safe in small amounts but most people mega dose to see results. Beta Sitosterol is the main ingredient in saw palmetto that decreases dht. I'm guessing this is why people see such good results when using it. Side effects wise I would definitely have to agree that I couldn't think as clearly as normal. I just ordered a cream called Nothing to Hide by Plexy Labs a few days ago. I asked people on here if anyone had used it or thought the company was reputable. Sadly no one repliedneutral.gif Sooo I stepped out in faith. They claim that it blocks dht on the skin and it doesn't have any side effects. 

Great. Please remember to tell about your experiences with that cream! I hope it helps. I may order it someday. So you used beta sitosterol? Did it clear your acne completely?

 I definitely will! I have high hopesrolleyes.gif  The pills i took were 350 mg and i started to see clearing in the second week. That was with just taking one pill a day. My body is pretty sensitive to supplements though so dosage might be more for other people. I was almost completely clear but the side effects were not worth it.



I would just like to remind people that if you need a really high dose of saw palmetto to see results, you can try lowering your dose and making up the difference with spironolactone CREAM, which is safe for males, and you can buy over the counter

The only problem is that you can find a lot of men complain that Spironolactone cream actually caused a drop in there overall androgen levels. So that means that this strong anti-androgen does get absorbed through your skin, but to the point it gets into your blood stream. From what I understand is that it blocks all androgens in general and works as an antagonist to their receptors. I would rather just down regulate DHT production without harming my testosterone levels as well.

I use to think it was a myth too, but then why do so many people see such a dramatic clearing of their skin issues when using DHT blockers? I've taken DIM to increase free testosterone and lower estrogen, and P5P in an attempt to lower prolactin. My face was still breaking out like crazy while taking both of these. Then i started taking Beta-Sitosterol and my acne cleared up within a week.

Bobbi; TS

 

if you are reading this, you're probably not since you are fully cured, 

i would like to thank you.

guess many here are in the same boat; that DHT srsly screwed us up.

Nonetheless is there any regimen that you can suggest or are following to tip us?

Saw Palmetto

Stinging nettle

Green Tea extract

Zinc

isoflavone 

 

How should we go about regulating these supplements, like consuming all at one go?

 

Thank you.

 

For awhile I've been taking 50mg zinc before i go to bed and i would have to say it has cleared my acne up 30%ish. I had higher hopes for that, but I'm still going to stick with taking it daily. Ive taken beta sitosterol and saw palmetto in pills and lets just say it messed up my sex drive for a good 6 months. Who would've guessed you needed dht to actually function in that department. I'm now going to attempt the whole topical route. One product is called (Zix) which is actually for hair loss and i'm thinking why couldn't it be applied to your face! In my time of boredom i found a webpage that has a face cream that has beta sitosterol in it and it says it actually blocks dht in the skin. The name of that company is Plexy Labs and the product is called 'Nothing to Hide'. Does anyone know if they are reputable and if you think it is worth a try?? Any other supplements you would recommended would be greatly appreciated.

To be honest I've had experience with oral dht blocker and it isn't pretty. Ive taken Beta-Sitosterol for around 3 months and it killed my sex drive completely. Who would've guessed dht is needed for libido. I'm thinking about taking 50mg zinc every night before I go to bed. I was reading about Spironolactone and it looks like it would be pretty harsh on your body.
