Health Tips: Chinese vitamins for hair growth

DHT and Chinese Medicine

DHT is one of the most common causes of hair loss next to age. It is created when testosterone combines with an enzyme known as 5? reductase. DHT causes hair loss by binding to your hair follicles and disallowing them from receiving any of the nutrients they need to survive and grow strong.

Chinese medicine has, for several centuries now, known that certain herbs actually help block DHT from forming, so that your hair grows healthier for longer. These herbs include:

* Ginseng * Gotu Kola * Saw Palmetto

All three are highly effective at combating hair loss and preventing future recurrences of hair loss from happening. Ginseng

Ginseng is a well known herb, but it is not well known as a Chinese vitamin for hair growth. Still, it helps your hair grow stronger and healthier naturally. While it may seem that this is not halting the effects of DHT, on the contrary, Ginseng is essentially making DHT start from scratch as it tries to suck the nutrients from your scalp. The longer you take Ginseng, the more likely your hair will fight back. Gotu Kola

Gotu Kola is another Chinese vitamin for hair growth, but those in the hair loss circles know this herb more intimately. Gotu Kola stops the creation of the enzyme that helps create DHT. Without as much of the enzyme, less DHT is created, because it is less necessary for the enzyme to create DHT than it is to do its other functions. Saw Palmetto

Easily the most powerful Chinese vitamin for hair growth, Saw Palmetto prevents DHT from forming by not allowing testosterone to combine with the enzyme. The levels of neither chemical are effected, but the result is the same - less DHT, more hair growth. Saw Palmetto is one of the most popular Chinese vitamin for hair growth, but it is significantly more powerful when combined with the other three herbs.
