Nettle Root increases DHT
Secoisolariciresinol, a lignan in nettle root displayed a modest inhibitory effect on DHT binding to SHBG in vitro, theoretically resulting in greater concentrations of free DHT in serum and in local tissues. The lignan 3,4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran, also present in nettle root was able to completely inhibit DHT from binding to SHBG, yet another indication that it can result in increased free (active) DHT available to tissues such as that in the scalp.
Planta Med. 1997 Dec;63(6):529-32.
Lignans from the roots of Urtica dioica and their metabolites bind to human sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG).

Overall DHT is increased but only where you want it increased, muscle tissue. This also explains why users report strength going up so much when using it.
Bloodwork that Ive had done and seen support all of the research on it. So not only does it work in the lab but it works in exercising males as well.

Al tho I didn't know this I completely believe it. I did loose hair when I used activate and it hasn't grown back. I completely agree that it does increase dht in the scalp. I wish I had known this before. I would have never used it cause the hair still hasn't grown back to how it was before.
But I am also prone mpb so that made it even worse but now I know to stay away from any product containing this, im barely over 21 and I dont wanna make it worse. Thanks for informing us on this, I really did loose hair on the top back of my head around the exact time I used this so I def aggravated my genetic mpb.

the prostate and scalp are not the same tissues, just as they are not skeletal muscle. Nettle does not block the binding of DHT in the scalp. It's also not that DHT is actually being blocked in the prostate anyhow, rather, it's an inhibition of SHBG from binding to the prostatic membrane receptors. It has nothing to do with DHT actually being blocked itself.

No wonder nettle killed my hairline.

I'm confused. Will stinging nettle actually increase DHT or not?
Do users experience increased beard growth for example?

This is an interesting little conversation. It's a little confusing, though, as the study seems to indicate more potential bonding at the scalp, where as Matt seems insistant that is is less likely. NOrmally I go straight with the study, but Matt is the diavinil guy. Of course, he also has a vested interest in it. I'll just keep an open mind.

I believe it. When I was taking Activate, one of the main effects that I saw was increased beard growth. I was sportin' a biker gottee for a few months.

Hair is for women, unless its on a chest/arm pits/back, then stay the **** away from that woman.

would have less active Estrodiol and Progesterone? Maybe a new marketing avenue?

I got some Divanil for my upcoming cycle's PCT but I don't plan to use it until about day 15. I figure since it helps free up test, and at beginning there not much test to free up day 15 should be good.
