|Mega Green Tea Extract
Green Tea Extract has been shown in several studies to be a potent inhibitor of 5-alpha reductase type I,the isozyme that converts testosterone into DHT in skin. Propecia (Proscar) inhibits 5-alpha-reductase type II, which is located primarily in the prostate gland, and is responsible for the amount of DHT in serum circulation. It is also thought to have use as an androgen receptor blocker. Additionally Mega Green Tea Extract has been shown to neutralize the inflammatory cytokines associated with hair loss and to inhibit aromatase, often ameliorating the side effects associated with Propecia, allowing for its continued usage. Combining high potency Green Tea Extract with Propecia (Proscar) should increase its effectiveness, and provide numerous additional health benefits, including a reduction in bodyfat.
