Male baldness pattern is the source of much embarrassment to men. It causes many men to feel self-conscious about their appearance. Extreme hair loss and thinning hair makes its victims look older than they really are, and often ruins their self-esteem.
Why do some men get that huge bald patch on top of their head while others don’t? It’s a trait that is genetically inherited. Although there are other causes of baldness, it is almost always due to this culprit: DHT. DHT Dihydrotestosterone) is derived from the male hormone, “Androgen”. Androgen in the bloodstream interacts with a certain enzyme (5-alpha reductase) and gets converted into DHT. Short version: Androgen + 5-Alpha = DHT.
DHT is the hair follicle “strangler”. When there is enough of it in the bloodstream, it will bind to the lining of the hair follicles, choking out the hairs’ growth. Not suddenly. At first, the hairs grow thinner because of the condition of the constricted follicles. Eventually, no hair at all emerges from the follicles.

You can get supplements that include all the vitamins listed above, plus other DHT inhibitors. While topical remedies help rid the hair follicles of DHT, supplements work within the blood. These function as DHT blockers, preventing its formation.
There are three dietary supplements you can get without a doctor’s prescription, that act as DHT blockers:
